The White Chamber FAQ/Walkthrough

The White Chamber FAQ/Walkthrough
  Created by Insanity Prevails

Introduction

The White Chamber is a freeware mystery adventure done in the point & click genre. You play the role of Sarah when she wakes up in a coffin with no memory of why she is there. The idea is to solve the riddles to progress and eventually escape.

This guide will help you to get past any of the trickier puzzles that have you stumped and to open up the different endings.

Version History & Other Info

Advice Corner

Just in case you still want to try to get through the difficulties yourself but are stuck. Bear the following things in mind.

  • Listen to Sarah. She will often comment on the situation, especially when using the examine (eye icon) command. This also holds true for obtaining the different endings. If Sarah thinks something is a bad idea then it probably is.
  • Revisit rooms repeatedly if stuck. Events in one room can sometimes affect something in a completely different room. If your progress isn't immediately obvious then try checking out all the other rooms. Chances are something has changed.
  • Sometimes, stupidity is the only option. If all else fails try doing something ridiculous, just as long as Sarah isn't vocal against it.

Karma System

The ending you receive at the end of the game (assuming you don't fall victim to a death ending earlier on) is based on Sarah's karma score. She starts with a karma score of 1, and can gain or lose karma based on her actions. In truth, there are 5 karma boosting events and 1 karma dropping event. This makes for a possible range of 0-6 karma. A good rule is that acts of compassion will boost her karma, whereas clearly dangerous acts will drop it.

You can keep track of this in the Research Room. The number of marks on the blackboard on the left side shows how many karma points you currently have.

Walkthrough

Guide Note

Interact means to right click an object and choose the hand icon. Examine means to right click an object and choose the eye icon.

Coffin Room

Karma Warning

Yes, one already. Answer Yes to the second question.

Interact with the wires next to the panel on the right side. Interact with the panel to be asked "Do you know where you are?" The answer to this doesn't matter in terms of progression or ending. Only difference is that answering no opens the shutters and yes doesn't. Interact with the panel again for another question "Do you regret?" Either answer progresses the events but effects your karma score. Interact with the panel again for a final question: "Are you ready?" Answer Yes to open the door, then left click the door to leave. Note that while it is possible to answer no to the last question, there is no effect and you can't progress until you go back to the panel and answer yes.

Navigation Room

Left click the door on the right side.

Storage Area

Interact with the lab coat. You will receive a key card and an override key. Left click the door you came through.

The Solar Backup gauge should fill when this is done. Left click above the console to exit it. Interact with the wall panel (next to the door you just came through). Left click the Safety Lock icon, then left click Lower Cradle. Now left click the middle door.

Rec Room

A few things to do in here. Interact with the Cupboard in the top right corner of the room. Interact with the arm to put it and the video disc #1 in the inventory. Yes, an arm. Left click either side to exit. Interact with the switch just in front of the sealed door on the right to raise a table with a video screen on it. You can play the disk you just got on it if you want by grabbing the disc from your item list and then left clicking the video screen. It is advised if you want to understand the story but it is not required. In either case, interact with the cupboard on the top left side of the room. Interact with the Strange Box to add it to your item list (although it is named Steel Box while you have it). Left click either side to exit. Left click the top center door.

Note that while it is possible to collect the Can of Drink and the Extinquisher from this room, neither one are actually used for anything.

Really, there's nothing of significance you can do here. You can examine and try to interact with different things, but none have an effect on the game. It is a requirement to visit here though to progress.

Sleeping Quarters

Left click the door you came through. Sarah won't fully do it for reasons that will be obvious so you'll remain in the room. Left click the door on the right side.

Navigation Room

Oh my, this looks different. Left click the creature on the nav console. This will take you back to the Sleeping Quarters.

Navigation Room

Left click the door on the left.

Computer Room

Interact with the right computer that is near the backup unit you used before. Here you have to input a colour code by clicking the segment in order. The clue is the note, where the first letters of each word of the phrase correspond with the colours. The answer is Purple, White, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red. This brings up the droid control display.

Grab the VCR tape out of your inventory and use it on the video player on the right side of the room. The torture video Sarah sees being player will become a reality for her.

Interact with the batteries by the table to collect them. Interact with the scalpel and the sample dish by the blackboard to collect them. Left click the bottom door.

Death Ending Warning

Simple. Don't stop the torture. If you let it go on for too long then Sarah falls victim to the Torture ending. Do note that it takes quite a while for this to happen, so be prepared to sit around for a while.

Rec Room

Activate the switch on the right side of the room (the same one previously used to bring up the video screen) to open the mouth(!) in the floor. Now use the axe on the chain holding up the fridge. It will get stuck in the opening, so go interact with the torso to collect it and allow the fridge to fall. Left click the bottom door.

Endings

There are four death endings and four proper endings.

Death Endings

First let's cover the death endings, which work based of specific actions.

Space Ending
After visiting the beach area and then attempting to go back through the door. If you attempt to open the same door another three times you will get this ending.

Torture Ending
After using the VCR tape do not stop the torture sequence and you will get this ending. Takes a while though.

Venomous Ending
Once the fridge appears in the Rec Room simply do not get rid of it. Exit and re-enter the room three times with it still hanging around to get this ending.

Decay Ending
When in the quarantine area, answering no to the first question lands you with this ending.

Proper Endings

Make it to the White Chamber and you will get one of these endings, which will be based on your karma score. Time to go over those karma events.

  • You get 1 karma point for free by starting the game.
  • +1 karma for answering yes to the second question at the beginning of the game.
  • +1 karma for attempting to break the stasis chamber with the axe in the nightmare version of the computer room.
  • +1 karma for using the blanket on the man in the freezer before interacting with him.
  • +1 karma for using the blanket on the corpse in the medical bay after assembling him.
  • +1 karma for answering no to the second question when trapped in the quarantine area.
  • -1 karma for cutting the wires in the analyser in the computer room.

Torment Ending
Finish with a karma score of 0. Requires you to avoid all karma boosting events and to do the sole karma dropping event.

Damned Ending

Finish with a karma score of 1 or 2. Avoid doing too many karma boosting events.

Redemption Ending

Finish with a karma score of 3, 4 or 5. Leave at least one karma boosting event alone or make sure to do the karma dropping one if you do all the others.

Comedy Ending

Finish with a karma score of 6. Requires you to complete all the karma boosting events and to avoid the sole karma dropping event.

Easter Eggs

Debug Room
Press the Home key on your keyboard at any time to enter the debug room. Here you can use one of the many doorways to jump immediately to specific sections with a preset item list.

Icon Change

Press F10 to change the interact and examine icons. Press F11 to switch them back to normal.

Droid Console

If you input the colour code for the droid console before you're able to actually have the note then you will find a corpse staring at you through the monitor. Yes, it's the same dude you have to reassemble later.

8 bit Section

When in the Stoage Area there is a MES (an obvious reference to the NES) sitting on a shelf. Sarah will refuse to bother with it at first, but after repeated attempts she will play it, causing her to appear in an 8 bit version of the Storage Area. The only way to escape is by using the axe on the explosive.
