You decide that you will look for another way out. You continue to try prying open the door, but no success. Suddenly, the lights begin to flicker again. Darkness.\n\nWhen the light returns, there are almost 30 children standing in front of you. They are all pale, with dark circles under their eyes. They are dead. \n\nIn unison, they begin shouting "COME PLAY WITH US!"\n\nYou scream, but it is too late. They have you now.\n\nBack to the [[Start]].
You try opening the door, but it doesn't budge. You use all your force in a single kick, and the door swings open. The odor is worse than ever and you begin to feel nausious as the smell fills your nostrils. You walk into the room.\n\n"What does this room have to do with the message!!! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME" You shout out loud!\n\nThe door slams shut behind you. You try to open it back up, but the knob will not even turn. You are locked in.\n\nYou walk around the room and start looking for clues. You head towards the kitchen when you notice something odd. On the kitchen table, there are dinner place settings set around as if someone is having company for a meal. \n\nIn front of each setting, there is a name engraved into the wood. You read the names. Matthew. Samantha. Edward. Vanessa.\nWhoever lived here must have had alot of kids, you think to yourself. \n\nYou walk into [[the kitchen]].
No! You will not sell your soul to the spirit. There must be another way. You don't have much time. You think to how this all began. You know Jackie was schizophrenic. All she ever wanted was a family. By judging off her diary entries, her behaviour worsened when she wasn't on her medication.\n\nSuddenly, it dawns on you. That's it! The medication! Jackie never took her medication!\n\nIt all begins to make sense- the phone call, the pills bottles in the garbage.\n\nThe lights return. And that's when you see her.\n\nJackie Stevenson is standing before you. She is dressed in a long, powder blue night gown and her white stringy hair is pulled back into a bun. She is levitating in front of you. She is floating closer and closer to you.\n\nYou grabbed the pill bottle [[from your pocket]].
You run up the stairs and the laughter finally stops. When you reach the next level, you see the door to the lobby. You realize it must lead to the front exit. As you make your way through the lobby, you remember you lost your phone and wallet. You do not even know where you are exactly. You look around the lobby level for a resident, hoping to borrow their phone. No one. You begin to think you may knock on some residents' doors when you hear a phone ring. You turn around to see a payphone by the front of the lobby. That seems odd. Someone is calling the payphone. Without hesitation, you run towards it. You [[answer the phone]].
You enter the study. The room is poorly lit, however you do not notice many objects in the small little space. In the middle of the room is a big desk, covered in a bunch of documents.\n\nYou pick up one pile of papers. It appears to be a bunch of pictures of young children, along with their birth certificates attached to them. You read the names.\n\nMATTHEW PETERSON\nBORN JULY 4, 1964\nLOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY\n\nVANESSA MORIN\nBORN MAY 11, 1967\nTAMPA, FLORIDA\n\nAs you read through all the names, you realize they are the same as the place settings on the kitchen table. You start to think maybe the woman who lived here, Jackie, was a foster mother. But what does this have to do with the strange occurences happening?, you think. \n\nYou pick up another pile of documents, and your heart sinks in your chest. You read.\n\nJACKIE ARLENE STEVENSON\nPATIENT #356\nDIAGNOSED WITH SYMPTOMS OF SCHIZOPHRENIA\nPRESCRIPED MEDICATION- PALIPERIDONE\n\nWhat does this mean..? You think.\n\nIf Jackie was schizophrenic, there is no way she could be a foster mom, could she?\n\nBefore you have any more time to ponder the thought, you notice a spider climbing off the paper and onto your hand. As you attempt to shake it off, you notice thousands of spiders begin to swarm you from all over the room. They are coming from the ceiling. The floor. The walls. All over.\n\nYou quickly turn around and run out of the room, slamming the door behind you.\n\nTime to keep searching. Do you enter [[the bathroom]] or [[the bedroom]]?
The year is 1969. A middle-aged woman named Jackie Stevenson, had never found love but always deeply wanted a family of her own. After years of living a lonely and loveless life, something happened to Jackie. Her mind went completely deranged. She decided it was time to get what she had always desperately wanted. A family. One by one, Jackie began to kidnap all the children who were living in her apartment building. They would be her children now. She murdered every last child, and placed their corpses around her apartment, room 1207. Some were sitting at the dinner table, some in beds, some watching TV. After her neighbors noticed a rancid smell coming from Jackie's apartment, it sparked police investigation. When the police arrived at Jackie's apartment, they found her sitting at the table with the corpses eating a bowl of tomato soup. When they tried to detain her, she became violent and was ultimately shot down by the officers. The story became documented worldwide and many of the residents in the apartment complex were so horrified, they moved out. The apartment building has been abandoned for over 40 years and is said to be one of the most haunted sites in the world. They say the spirits of the children and Jackie herself, still haunt the building to this day.\n\nPRESENT DAY:\nYou are leaving a friend's party. You are not quite sure what time it is and not sure how to get home. You check your pockets and realize you have dropped your wallet and cellphone. You have no way of contact with anyone. Stumbling down a long deserted street, your vision starts to blur but you can faintly notice a building up ahead. You notice that the backdoor is cracked open. You stumble for what only seems like halfway there when you suddenly blackout.\n\n[[Continue?]]
You walk into the bathroom. There doesn't seem to be much to find in the room. You look into the garbage can and notice about two dozen orange bottles, filled with those pills. In the bathtub, the water is filled so far to the top it is almost overflowing. There is a small yellow rubber duck floating in the tub.\n\nYou realize there is nothing of significance in this room. You turn to exit, but the door is locked. You push and pull with no success. You turn around and are shocked at what you see.\n\nA corpse of young girl is now lying the bathtub, covered in blood. Her eyes are closed as she gently floats in the pool of the blood. \n\nHOW DID SHE GET THERE? you frantically think to yourself.\n\nSuddenly, her eyes open and she sits up to look at you.\n\n"ITS BATHTIME!!!!" she screams.\n\nShe pulls you into the tub and you drown.\n\nBack to the [[Start]].
The kitchen appears extremely messy. There is expired food and broken plates sprawled all across the floors and countertops. You noticed a few orangle bottles sitting on the counter. You read it.\n\nJACKIE STEVENSON\nPALIPERDONE\nTAKE 4 TIMES DAILY\n\nAt first, these words mean nothing to you. But then a chill shivers down your spine as you think back to earlier. The call on the payphone.\n\nThe voice on the phone said "JACKIE! TAKE YOUR PILLS"\n\nThis must be the woman who lives here, Jackie Stevenson...You take the bottle of pills and place it in your pocket.\n\nYou look over on the counter and see a bowl of tomato soup. Your stomach begins to grumble as you realize you don't remember the last time you ate. \n\nDo you [[eat the soup]] or [[keep searching]]?
WHAT IS GOING ON? I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE! You think to yourself.\n\n"Hey you! Turn around!"\n\nIt's the voice of the little boy. You are frightened to turn around. Slowly you look behind you.\n\nThere is no one there.\n\nWithout hestitation, you begin to run down the hall towards the elevator shaft. You slip and fall to the floor. The lights go out. \n\nYour hear an old raspy voice of a woman...\n\n"Playtime is over children."\n\nYour soul has been sucked out of your body.\n\nBack to the [[Start]].
She is now coming at you, full speed ahead. You think, if this doesn't work, there is no other way. \n\nYou look at her and scream. "JACKIE! TAKE YOUR PILLS! YOU MUST TAKE YOUR PILLS!"\n\nYou [[throw the bottle]] at her.
The room explodes with bright light. The figure of Jackie begins to deteriorate away before your eyes.\n\nThe children who were running around you have also disappeared. You see their spirits rise into the bright light. You have released the spirits. The haunting is over.\n\nYou smile as you realize you have saved all those children's spirits and they can now rest in peace. \n\nAll she wanted was a family, you think to yourself. That's all she wanted.\n\nYou turn back to the staircase and head towards the lobby. You see the front door and kick right through it. The glass shatters but you do not care. Before you step outside, you turn around and take one last look at the apartment building with a smile.\n\nCONGRATULATIONS! You have solved the mystery of Jackie Stevenson and the haunting of the Sandy Lane apartment building.
You put the receiver to your ear and ask who's calling. You hear nothing. "Hello?! Can Anyone Hear Me?!" you say. Nothing. You start to hear light breathing. Someone must be on the other line. Suddenly, you hear a man's voice.\n\n"NO! JACKIE NO! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE! TAKE YOUR PILLS, JACKIE! TAKE YOUR PILLS!" \n\n"Who's Jackie?!" You ask. "I need to call a cab!"\n\nSuddenly, the voice changes. It sounds like an elderly woman. Her voice is old and raspy. \n\nShe says, "Its...too...late. You're mine now."\n\nThe phone disconnects. That was strange. Must be some sort of prank call. You try hanging up and dialing a number for a cab. But there is no dialtone. The line is disconnected. \n\nYou're standing right near the front door, but you still haven't figured out where you are. Do you [[leave the building]] and walk around outside or do you [[head to the elevators]] to use a resident's phone?
You decide to keep on looking. The laughter continues. It's getting louder and louder. Closer and closer. You realize it's coming from behind the dryer machines. You walk closer. The laughter is getting louder. It begins to sound like a cackle. All of a sudden, silence. When you reach the dryer machines, there is no one in sight. You begin to think you may just be hearing things, when you feel a hand grab your ankle. You look down to see a little girl holding onto your leg. She has curly blond hair and is wearing a light pink jumper. She has a Raggedy Ann doll in her hand. She is staring at you. Staring through you. But doesn't say a word. You ask her who she is. She says nothing. You ask her again. [[Nothing]].
Using the four walls surrounding you in the elevator, you prop yourself uptowards the ceiling and open the emergency exit. You pull yourself up and eventually escape the elevator. You are now in the shaft of the elevator and all you can see is darkness.\n\nSuddenly, it dawns on you. What had just happened in that elevator? you think. What is the significance of the number '1207'. By looking at each set of elevator doors in the shaft, you can count there are 12 floors in the building. Could it have something to do floor 12? With little time to make a decision, you ponder what you shoud do.\n\nDo you head to the [[12th floor]] or do you start [[somewhere else]].
You try to break your leg free from her grip. But she is holding on tight. So tight that she begins to dig her nails into your skin. Suddenly, she smiles at you. She whispers, "You shouldn't be here. She's gonna find you." You ask her who she is talking about. She points her finger behind you. You turn around and see a silhoutte standing there. The shadowy figure speeds toward you and devours your soul.\n\nBack to the [[Start]].
Game Objective: Uncover the secret of Jackie Stevenson in order to escape the haunted Apartment complex of Sandy Lane.
You enter the bedroom. You feel uneasy as you settle with the thought that this was Jackie's room. There is a small single sized bed in the corner of the room. There are dozens of news paper clippings posted on the walls. You read some of the titles.\n\nPATIENT ESCAPES LOUSIANA MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY\n\nSCHIZOPHRENIC PATIENT POSES THREAT TO COMMUNITY\n\nIt seems all the postings relate to a missing patient from a mental health institution. Until you read...\n\nTHE CASE OF THE MISSING CHILDREN AT SANDY LANE APARTMENTS\n\nYou cringe as the picture of the apartment in the newspaper article is the same as the building you are trapped in.\n\nThis is where it took place. Sandy Lane Apartments. But where did these children go missing to? As you feel you are starting to lose hope, you scream aloud "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!"\n\nSuddenly, you noticed movement in the room. There is a small cabinet sitting next to the bed. The drawer begins to slowly open on its own.\n\nYou are more scared than ever. You slowly peer into the drawer. There is a little black book, which appears to be a diary. Jackie's diary.\n\nDo you [[read it?]] or search more rooms like [[the study]] and [[the bathroom]]? \n\n\n
You decide maybe you should check out another floor first. Using the rope holding the elevator in motion, you climb up until you reach the 2nd floor. When you arrive, the elevator doors surprisingly slide right open. You carry on your way through the second floor.\n\n"Hello? Is anybody here?" you call out. But no response. But then, the hallway lights began to flicker. This can't be a good sign.\n\nOut of nowhere, you feel a gust of wind fly past you. A little boy on a scooter is riding through the hallway. \n\n"Excuse me?" you shout to him. "Can you help me?"\n\nWithout looking back at you, he says "Follow me!" and turns the corner.\n\nYou [[turn the corner]].
There has got to be more clues in this room, you think to yourself. Why else would I be led here. \n\nAhead of you, you notice three more rooms in the apartment. \n\nDo you enter [[the bathroom]], [[the bedroom]] or [[the study]]?
When you enter the laundry room, the room is pitch black. You hear nothing but the sound of your own breath. The answer must be in this room! you think to yourself.\n\nSuddenly, the lights flicker on.\n\nSurrounding you is every last child that went missing in the Sandy Lane apartments. They are running circles around you.\n\nYou scream, "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!"\n\nThe lights go out.\n\nYou hear an old, raspy woman's voice whisper "Your soul.."\n\nIt takes only a second to realize what this means. You must sacrifice yourself. It may be the only way to set the haunting free. You could be the child Jackie always wanted.\n\nDo you [[sacrifice your soul]] or [[think of another way out]]?
When you turn the corner, the boy is no where in sight. Where could he have gone to? Something can't be right. Weird things seem to keep happening. This is inhuman. Could there really be ghosts in this building. Now your only motive is to escape the building as fast as you can. You decide to run out of here. Instead of returning to the elevator, you find the staircase you initially took. It only takes a second for you to realize the [[door is locked]].
You rush towards the front door. When you get there, you push on the door but its locked. You try again with more pressure, but no luck. Suddenly, a great force pulls you back and you hit the wall behind you. \n\nWhat just happened?! Who just pulled you back?, you think to yourself.\n\nNow in a frantic panic, you attempt to run back towards the door, but the force pulls you back once again. Now your shaking and terribly scared. You realize that what is pulling you isn't human. It is ominous. And you can't escape.\n\nYou have no choice now but to check the rooms of the residents, to find any signs of life form to help you.\n\nYou are forced to [[head to the elevators]].
You realize that '1207' must have some sort of connection to the 12th floor. You struggle as you pull yourself up the rope holding the elevator in motion. After what feels like an eternity, you finally reach the 12th floor.\n\nWhen you swing the doors open, a family of bats fly into the shaft, causing you to almost lose balance. Maintaining your grip to the rope, you pull yourself out of the shaft and onto the 12th floor. And suddenly, a terrible smell fills your nose.\n\nYou can't quite put your finger on it. You have never smelled this odor before, however it is the worst odor you have ever experienced. As you walk down the hallway, the smell keeps getting stronger. \n\nWhen you reach the end of the hallway, you look up to see yourself in front of room 1207. This is it.\n\nDo you [[enter the room]] or [[turn back now]]?
\nYou have decided to sacrifice your soul to Jackie.\n\n"TAKE ME! ILL BE WITH YOU FOREVER! JUST LEAVE THIS BUILDING!"\n\nWrong decision. The spirit of Jackie has deceived you. You have given permission for her to steal your soul. You have given her life. You have helped her. The haunting will not end. You have only added fuel to the fire. You are now doomed to the fate of all the other children. You will haunt the apartment complex forever.\n\nBack to the [[Start]].
You arrive at the elevator doors and frantically press the UP button until they open. The elevator hits the lobby level and the door slowly creaks open. You run inside and press floor 2, hoping to find some help from a resident. The doors shut, but the elevator remains stationary. You press the button to floor 2, again and again, but nothing. You press every single button to every floor in the building, but the elevator doesn't move. Suddenly the lights start flickering, and for a moment the elevator is completely dark. When the light returns, you stand there in shock as you can't believe what is now in front of you. The number '1207' is written in blood all around you, on the walls, on the ceiling, everywhere. But how could this happen, there's no one in the elevator with you...is there?\n\nYou suddenly begin to panic even more. You try to pry open the elevator doors but they won't budge. You are now trapped in the elevator. You look all around for a way out. You notice there is a small square outline in the corner of the ceiling. It's an emergency exit. It leads to the elevator shaft. Do you [[climb the shaft]] or [[look for another way out]]?
You decide to run for the stairs. You are only halfway towards the doorway when you hear the laughter getting closer. Without looking back, you finally reach the door. You push but no budge. The laughter feels so close that the hairs on your neck begins to rise. You finally break through the door and make your way [[up the stairs]].
You pick up the diary and search through the pages. You begin to read.\n\n'Dear diary,\nAnother day has gone by and the lonliness is stronger than ever. Do not know how much longer I can go on. Before I go to sleep every night, I pray to God for what I wish for dearly. A family to call my own.'\n\nYou read another page.\n\n'Dear diary,\nThere is a young boy who just moved in next door. His name is Matthew. He is such a handsome young boy. He loves to ride his scooter through the halls. If he was my son, I would be so good to him.' \n\nYou turn the page. \n\n'Dear diary,\nThe doctors are putting too much pressure on me. They tell me it will be okay. But it won't! IT WILL NEVER BE OKAY! NOT UNTIL I HAVE WHAT I DESPERATELY NEED!'\n\nYou turn the page to find the last entry in the book.\n\n'Dear diary,\nI haven't taken my medication in almost a month. I feel more free than ever. It's happening tonight. In the laundry room. Her name is Samantha Rivers. And she will soon, BE MINE.'\n\nYou scream outloud when it dawns on you. "JACKIE! IT WAS YOU! YOU KIDNAPPED ALL THOSE CHILDREN." \n\nYou realize the only way to end it, is to return where it all began. The laundry room. You [[run out of the room]].
Hours go by before you finally wake up. As you rub your eyes, you attempt to make out your surroundings but you're having difficulty. The light is very dim around you and you are having trouble lifting yourself up. As your eyes begin to adjust to the light, you realize your in some sort of basement laundry room. The room is so quiet you can hear your own footsteps. The lights flicker as you make your way around the room, searching for a way out. Suddenly, you hear something. Laughter. Laughter of a child. But you see no one. You begin breathing heavy as you frantically look around the room for the source of the laughter. You noticed on the far right of the room, there is a stairwell leading to an exit. But you still wonder who is in the room with you. Do you [[run for the stairs]] and [[keep on looking]]?
You decide that you don't want to see what's behind that door. You just want to escape. You turn around and it only takes a second before a force throws you back toward the end of the hallway. You try to pull yourself away, but the force keeps pulling you back. You cannot escape unless you see what's in room 1207. \n\nThere is no turning back anymore.\n\nYou are forced to [[enter the room]].
You decide to eat the soup. You grab a spoon off the counter and begin scarfing it down. At first, the taste explodes in your mouth. You can't stop eating. It tastes so good. Suddenly the taste goes bitter.\n\nSomething has changed. The taste. The consistency.\n\nYou look down to realize you have been drinking blood. \n\nYou scream and throw the bowl to the ground. Disgusted by what has happened, you begin to heave and throw up a little into the sink.\n\nYou run out of the room and [[keep searching]].
As you run out of the bedroom, you become filled with horror. Sprawled across the apartment are corpses of the young children. Some sitting at the table and some on the couch. The dead bodies raise their heads at the same time and all turn to look at you.\n\n"COME PLAY WITH US!!!!!!!" They yell.\n\nYou scream and quickly run towards the door. It has unlocked and you are back in the hallway. Without looking back, you head towards the stairwell and swing the door open. You run down the stairs toward the [[laundry room]].\n\n
