Objects of Interest[]

PSYNCIN' IN THE CHaiN is the most linear Somnium in the game, limiting your interactivity as you progress forward. The Mental Locks in this Somnium are operated by Saito Sejima as he dives deeper into the Psync, so instead, this page measures progress by a set of 11 steps Kaname Date takes as he tries to maneuver through. Additionally, time doesn't progress in this Somnium, and all of the choices are divided into either 0 seconds spent or 60 seconds spent, with a full 360 seconds used by the end of the Somnium. As such, no TIMIEs are featured in this Somnium, as everything is fixed for the player.

He wakes up in a cleaned up version of the room, and witnesses the moment in which Date (in Rohan) and Saito switch bodies. The memory of Date wakes up from his Psync in the body of Saito Sejima, forcibly pulling off the Psync Gear from his eye.

This action clears Step 11, awakening Date from his dream!

Hidden Item[]

  • The hidden item appears once you get to the room with the Prototype Psync Machine. It's right next to the Pool Of Blood, hanging from one of the hooks.

Trivia[]

  • With every Mental Lock cleared, a notification pops up telling the player that they have reached a checkpoint. Despite this, the "Retry" feature is completely disabled in this Somnium, making the checkpoints useless. It could potentially be an aesthetic choice to show that Saito Sejima has reached a checkpoint himself as he progresses deeper into Date's Somnium.
