Objects of Interest[]

Unlike most Somnia in the game, PSYNCIN' IN THE VaiN is unique in which the room itself, named Remains, drastically changes based on the story branch, which splits right at the beginning of the Somnium itself, changing into either White Remains in the A Path and Blue Remains in the B Path. While it does contain Mental Locks, the Somnium progresses more specifically through either 5 Child's Drawings (for the A Path) or 4 Murder Videos (for the B Path). Only two items are available at the very beginning, with only one of them lasting the entire Somnium.

Remains[]

Object Description
Availability Action Cost TIMIE Effect
TV An old CRT television sitting in the middle of an empty room.
1st Child's Drawings/
No Murder Witnessed
Hit 30s 2x
Detail:
Before hitting the TV, Aiba mentions how it's an old-fashioned approach to making the TV work, which Date counters by saying that it's an old-fashioned TV to begin with. Once hit, an image appears on the TV screen: a child's drawing of a rat, which eventually becomes crumbled up and stained with blood. After that image is seen, an RGB test plays on the Somnium, after which the entire room morphs into a crude papercraft representation of the room. Date determines that it could be a drawing made by Iris, but Aiba suggests they should continue exploring before jumping to conclusions.

This action ruins the 1st Child's Drawing, leading into White Remains.

Spin the Dial 30s 2x
Detail:
Turning the dial changes channel to a video where a blank silhouette, wearing the picture of a woman, is strangled to death by a blue figure, with a red figure seen in the background. The Somnium goes static, and once it returns to normal, the entire room is given color, with objects appearing all around. Aiba recognizes the image on the silhouette as that of one of the first victims of the Original Cyclops Serial Killings. Date, shocked, wonders what Iris could be hiding in this Somnium.

This action leads to witnessing the 1st Murder, leading into Blue Remains.

Doors A set of double doors at the entrance of the room.
All Somnium Stages Tackle 10s Random
Detail:
Attempting to tackle the door open will yield no results. Date yells out at every hit Aiba strikes at the door, which annoys her.
Open 5s 1/6
Detail:
Attempting to open the door yields no results. Aiba suggests that the door is not something they should worry about.

White Remains (A Path)[]

Progression in the A Path is dictated by how many Child's Drawings are ruined in the Somnium. With each drawing ruined, new objects are introduced. There are a total of 5 Drawings to ruin.

Object Description
Availability Action Cost TIMIE Effect
Medicine Shelf A shelf full of medical bottles and objects. At the top of the shelf is a CRT TV with a child's drawing of a frog appearing onscreen.
2nd Child's Drawing Investigate TV 50s Random
Detail:
Investigating the TV will have Aiba notice the drawing of the frog onscreen. Date makes a comment about how Aiba could "croak" due to the drawing. When Aiba asks if that was a joke, he states that he was wondering what the meaning of the drawing is. Eventually, the two conclude that there is no deeper meaning behind it.
Investigate the Bottle 35s 1/6
Detail:
Attempting to investigate a large bottle on the shelf will result in Aiba's hand slipping as the nitroglycerin bottle explodes on the floor. The explosion causes a chain reaction, in which all the nitroglycerin on the shelf explodes, up to the top of the shelf where the CRT television is. Upon the explosion, the Somnium goes into an RGB test, and once it stops, Aiba and Date discover the room has changed, noting how dangerous this Somnium seems to be.

This action ruins the 2nd Child's Drawing.

Smell 20s Random
Detail:
Smelling the contents of the shelf will have Aiba pick up on a sweet scent, similar to syrup or almonds. They wonder if this means the bottles of the shelves either contain a sweetener or nitroglycerin. Aiba mentions that nitroglycerin is usually mixed with acetone to lower the chemical's sensitivity to explode from a slight impact. While Date notes the name "acetone," Aiba wonders how Iris is aware of the handling of dangerous chemicals.
Reference Book A butterfly reference book, laying on a table by the wall. It includes various pictures of butterflies as reference.
3rd Child's Drawing onwards Throw 25s Random
Detail:
Attempting to throw the book will have it slip through the floor. Date comments how it's similar to quantum mechanics, using the example "when you touch a wall, your hand has an almost impossibly small chance of going through!" Aiba notes this is a phenomenon that will happen regularly in this Somnium, despite believing that Iris shouldn't be familiar with quantum mechanics. Once that's done, the book returns to its position.
3rd Child's Drawing Rip 50s 1/6
Detail:
Aiba comments that it would be difficult to tear the book due to its thickness, but with enough strength, she manages to rip it open. Once done, the image of the butterfly on the nearby TV is torn in half. An RGB test plays on the Somnium, and more objects appear in the room. Date mentions the Butterfly Effect, alluding about how the more actions they take, the less time they have.

This action ruins the 3rd Child's Drawing.

3rd Child's Drawing onwards Read 25s Random

Aiba inspects the book, noting how it is a book on butterflies and moths. She points out that there is no name written on the book itself.

4th Child's Drawing onward Open 25s 1/6
Detail:
Attempting to open the locker will have a knife fly right in front of Aiba's face, hitting the other side of the room. Aiba mentions that she would've been stabbed if this were the Delta Princess, while Date wonders why the locker was booby-trapped in the first place. With nothing inside the locker, Aiba asks Date if they should examine the knife instead.

This action progresses further into ruining the 4th Child's Drawing.

Listen 35s Random
Detail:
Listening to the locker will have Aiba note the sound of gears spinning or some other metal. Date asks her to be careful just in case.
Peek 45s Random

4th Child's Drawing
(after choosing Open on Locker)
Seppuku 50s Random
Detail:
Selecting to seppuku will have Aiba and Date to act out as two samurai, with Samurai Aiba refusing to commit seppuku, while Samurai Date offers her to speak a final haiku. Aiba gets irritated at Date's impression, wondering if the Somnium is affecting him in some way, to which he rebukes. She ultimately refuses to take the action.
Push In 75s Random
Detail:
Attempting to push the knife in will have Aiba punch the knife instead, with full force. After shouting in pain, she states that the knife can't be pushed in further than it already has.
Throw 25s 1/6
Detail:
Aiba attempts to lightly chuck the knife backwards, but it ends up flying off into the distance, landing on the TV with the drawing of the bird. The knife slips through the TV, and the image changes to a knife stuck on the bird in the drawing. An RGB test plays on the Somnium, and even more objects appear in the room. Date begins to understand the Somnium more, while Aiba is left confused.

This action ruins the 4th Child's Drawing.

3rd Child's Drawing onwards Sleep 162s 1/6

3rd Child's Drawing Perform Surgery 108s 1/6
Detail:
Aiba asks Date for whom she would be operating on, to which he responds by saying that she should act it out to see if a memory is reproduced. After some time, Aiba comments on how she feels like she's in a "medical dragon team." Once done, the image of the butterfly on the nearby TV is torn in half. An RGB test plays on the Somnium, and more objects appear in the room.

This action ruins the 3rd Child's Drawing.

4th Child's Drawing
(after choosing Perform Surgery)
Perform Surgery Again 216s
Detail:
Aiba asks Date why they're doing surgery again, while Date simply just encourages her to try her best. Aiba focuses as she performs surgery again, along with a variety of actions (as she "cannot simply follow the textbook"), such as: jumping and cheering, dancing and spinning on the spot, bench pressing, rapidly hitting a button, and cutting vegetables. Once done, the image of a bird from the new TV is stabbed with a knife. An RGB test plays on the Somnium, and even more objects appear in the room. With all these new items, Date concludes that they must be near the end of the Somnium.

This action ruins the 4th Child's Drawing.

Oil Drum An oil drum in the middle of the room. The lid is semi-open, but the insides are indiscernible with mosaic censorship.
5th Child's Drawing Look Inside 60s 1/6
Detail:
Attempting to look inside the oil drum will have Aiba stare at the mosaic censorship. As she keeps staring, an RGB test image obscures her view, and once it's over, the old drum has been tipped over with oil splattered on the floor. On top of the oil, 6 bullets can be found.

With this action, Aiba gains Bullets.

2nd Child's Drawing onwards Look Down the Barrel 44s Random
Detail:
Looking down the gun's barrel will have Aiba conclude that the inside of the barrel is dark. Date suggests that she bring her face closer to look inside, which she obliges. As she faces the barrel of the gun head-on, she slowly inches closer, and closer, and closer, and closer.... and then Date yells "Bang!" This prank, however, doesn't work, as Aiba was too focused on the gun to even hear what Date was saying. Date tells her that he didn't believe she would fall for it, and apologizes, much to Aiba's confusion.
Remove 55s Random
Detail:
Attempting to pull the gun out of the vice results in failure, as the gun doesn't budge from its place. Date suggests that Aiba should try to loosen it, but she concludes its impossible due to the papercraft state it's in. Date wonders what the meaning of this gun is.
2nd Child's Drawing onwards (Without Bullets) Shoot 22s Random
Detail:
Attempting to shoot the gun yields no result. Before pulling the trigger, Aiba notes that there are no bullets inside. Once the attempt fails, the two decide to look for a bullet.
5th Child's Drawing (With Bullets) 99s 1/6
Detail:
Date notes that they could use the bullets they gained from the oil drum, and with that, Aiba loads the gun. With the gun facing the TV with the drawing of the cat, Aiba pulls the trigger. The bullet flies straight into the cat's head, and after an RGB test image, the cat has gained a bullet hole. Once that's done, a video of a blue figure kissing a woman with the face of So Sejima appears on screen.

The two then state that they can't prove this is Iris's, and that it's best to not conclude anything.

Investigating will have Aiba note that the pistol is fixed upon a vise. They also note the long stick within the hole of the trigger guard.

Hidden Item[]

  • The hidden item is found during Remains, in Mental Lock #1 before the environment changes to either White Remains or Blue Remains. It was located past the TV towards the left corner.

Trivia[]

  • The various mentions to the chemical "acetone" are correlated to Iris Sagan, or rather, her stage name A-set. In Japanese, Iris's fan-nickname is "Aseton" (rather than "Tesa"), in reference to the chemical "acetone."
  • When selecting "Perform Surgery" on the Operating Table in White Remains, Aiba states that she feels like she's part of a "medical dragon team." This is most likely a reference to Team Medical Dragon, a manga series that was adapted to a live-action show, involving a medical team of surgeons operating patients in Japan.[1]
  • Selecting "Talk" on the Torso in White Remains will have Aiba speak with an American Southern accent to the torso. In Japanese, she speaks with a Kansai dialect, common within the Kansai region in Japan, and commonly compared to the American Southern accent by game localizations.
  • When selecting "Jump" on the Gun in Blue Remains, Aiba will prepare to jump by saying "Weekly Shonen––" before being cut off by Date. This is a reference to the manga anthology magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump, known for releasing weekly chapters of various shonen manga series published under the JUMP line.[2]
