The following is a walkthrough for completing Chapter 4 of Detention. This chapter involves Ray following an older Wei around a ruined version of their school. At points during this chapter, Ray has brief conversations with shadow versions of herself. This is the only point in the game with dialogue options, and certain answers must be selected to unlock the "true ending" and the Back to School Achievement.

Walkthrough[]

The scene opens with Ray waking up in a chair in the auditorium as old Wei walks away.

  1. Move to the left and go through the door against the back wall (where Ray's pendant was found in the prologue.

  4. You find another Ray in here, talk to her.
  5. Leave the room through the door next to you. Walk to the right - you will notice the shadow following you through the window, stopping once you reach the locked door at the end of that room. Continue walking all the way to the right and go down the stairs.
  6. Walk all the way to the left and go back up the stairs, then enter through the first door you see.

  20. In this room is a shadow Ray that will mirror your movements, and a light switch on the right. Turn the switch on if it isn't already.
    1. Walk left. The shadow will get stopped by the light, allowing you to get close enough to speak to it; do so.
    2. Walk all the way to the left and turn on that light switch.
    3. Speak to the other Ray again.
    4. Walk right and turn off that light switch, then walk as far left as you can and speak with the shadow again. She will ask you a question.

  25. Walk back to the left and exit through the door you entered from.

At this point, the remaining steps vary depending on whether you got the normal ending or the true ending. If you are on track for the true ending, there will be a paper airplane on the ground here. Otherwise there will be a static-filled shadow Ray. Both endings are fairly easy to navigate after this, but the following sections contain the continued walkthrough if you need it.
