Here you can find a complete Tormented Souls Walkthrough with all Puzzles, Key Items, Inventory Items, Collectibles, and Trophies. Everything needed for 100% completion is included.
This walkthrough shows the best route through the game, which also comes in handy when you do a Speedrun. Tormented Souls is a very puzzle-heavy game. You can expect your first playthrough to take 6 hours with the help of this walkthrough, or 10-12 hours without. Some locations have different names depending on whether looking at the map or the name that appears when you enter the room. For consistency this guide will use the names displayed on the map where possible.
This walkthrough is kept as spoiler-free as possible and doesn’t discuss cutscene contents or major story plots.
Depending on which patch you play this game on, you may find that certain sections of this walkthrough do not match. That is because some items were moved around, and even some rooms changed entirely, in the early patches. This is especially noticeable between 1.00 and 1.01. This walkthrough is accurate as of patch 1.03.
Overview of item coloring:
- Diary Entries
- Key Items
- Regular Items
After the cutscenes, you’ll be in the Private Bathroom. Check the locker to find William’s Diary 03. Interact with the cabinet to get a pocket watch, which shows the time 12:35. Now interact with the combination lock and input 1235. Grab the Wrench, adjust the head so it’s slightly open, then use the Wrench on the door (Escape ).
In the corridor, you have a chance for another trophy by walking into the darkness and dying (Death ), however, doing so you will start the game again. Walk around the corner to find a Lighter. Equip this and you can now head down the corridor. Take the first left into Waiting Room, grab some nails on the bench, and walk through to Examination Room. In here you can get Plastic Heart Part (Left) from a container on the bench. You can also get a vial of morphine in the cabinet, a recording tape near the desk and save your game here if you like (Registry ). Return to the East Wing Corridor and follow it around until you find a bulletin board where you can find E-F1 Map. You can also find Maria’s Diary A.

Grab Plastic Heart Part (Right) from the container and combine both halves, then return to the hallway and enter the Maternity Ward. Interact with the flashing light on the wall to open a secret passage, then grab the nails and head down. Grab the recording tape next to you, then use your Lighter to light the candles on the mirror. Head through the mirror and climb back up the ladder.
You’ll find a Crawler as well as morphine in the cabinet and nails on the bed. Use the Plastic Heart on the baby doll, then head back through the mirror and up the ladder. Head over to the body on the bed, press the switch and pull the lever to receive T Handle, then combine it with your Hex Socket. Return the Waiting Room and open the gate to Main Hall.
Grab some nails and head through the opposite door into Chapel. Deal with 2 Crawlers and grab W-F1 Map on the bench and morphine on a pew.

Here you’ll find nails, a recording tape, Stethoscope, Maria’s Diary C and a save point. Head back through the corridor for morphine, E-F2 Map and a second Waller. Use Iron Door Knocker on the door. For the puzzle, you can use the Stethoscope on the statue in the Main Hall to hear the solution, but the answer is: Slow, Fast, Fast, Fast, Slow, Slow.
Head through Library and grab the recording tape, morphine and nails. In the hallway you can get (Crucifixion ) by leading the Wheelchair into the sword trap, just step close to the swords to trigger them when the Wheelchair is next to you. Head into Dining Room to meet the priest again. He’ll give you a Thread Bolt, and you can find Maria’s Diary D by the entrance.

Head into the last room for this area to find another Slider, some morphine, William’s Diary 04 and unlock the door back to the Main Hall.
Return to the Generator Room in the Basement and turn off the generator. Now go back through Main Hall into the West Corridor and use the Scalpel on the hatch near where you grabbed the shotgun part to access the Boiler Room. Downstairs you’ll find a candle, a Crawler, shotgun ammo and a first aid kit, while upstairs you’ll find a candle stand, a Slider and William’s Diary 02. Head through the door and you’ll find some candle stands and 2 Crawlers, a morphine and 2 sets of nails in the basement area, as well as the Metal Dial and morphine in the open bathroom/shower area, just past the jump scare. Head through the water and flick the switch to make the water safe to cross once then power is back on. Take a right to unlock a shortcut gate, then back to the left into the Morgue.
Head through to unlock the door on the other side, which will allow you to turn the power back on. Return to the Morgue, grab the nails and move the metal cabinet to access the Experiment Room.

Go through to the cells where you’ll meet Anna (Frustration ). Use the Acid on the padlock. Grab a recording tape from the other cell, then return to the present. Go back down the ladder to Anna’s cell to find Anna’s Diary 04 and Incomplete Key, which you can combine with the Metal Dial from earlier to create the Combination Key.
Combination Key Doors
With the Combination Key in hand, you can now open the combination key doors you’ve likely seen but been unable to open. Head to East Wing Corridor to open the door to the Pharmacy. The solution is: Star, Triangle, Hexagon. Inside you’ll find William’s Diary 02 in front of you (this is a duplicate collectible), as well as a first aid kit, electric lance charge and Battery.
Next head to the Chapel to unlock the door to Archives. The solution is: Square, Triangle, Star. In here you can find shotgun shells, a recording tape and another door.

Collecting the Keys to the Mausoleum
Head in and you’ll immediately encounter a Slider. Go into Room 2B to find a recording tape, as well as the priest. Head into Bathroom AB, light the candles and enter the mirror. Go back through to Room 2D, where you’ll find some shotgun shells as well as a guillotine. Use your Scalpel on the guillotine to obtain Parchment Scroll. Go into Bathroom CD for some morphine and a Hammer, then into Room 2C. Light some candles and deal with the Slider, then open the chest for a Mannequin Arm. Grab the shotgun shells and return through the mirror, unlocking a gate on your way.
Return to Room 2C, dealing with a Slider on the way, and equip your Lighter before entering. Go through the bathroom to Room 2D for the next puzzle. In the middle of the room is a judge’s block. Use your Parchment Scroll on the indent, and then rotate the monkeys to the following positions: Hands on Eyes, Hands on Ears, Hands on Mouth, Headless. Now use your hammer on the block to receive the Staple Gun.
Return through the mirror and go to the mannequin in Room 2B. Use the Mannequin Arm, then examine your Staple Gun to change the power. Now use it to staple the arm on before returning through the mirror. Speak to the priest and he’ll give you an Electrical Lamp, which allows you to fight enemies in dark areas. Go through the mirror yet again and head to the end of the Intensive Care Corridor to deal with the Waller. Head into Room 2A, deal with the Wheelchair, unlock the gate and head back through the mirror for the final time. You can now head through the gate you opened to grab the Electric Lance, as well as a first aid kit and nails.
You’ll now find some new enemies spawned in previous areas. Head through Main Hall, dealing with 3 Crawlers on the way, downstairs into Service Area, where you’ll find a Slider. Go around the back to the Laundry, dealing with the Crawler and Waller. Go in and and grab Maria’s Diary G on a washing machine as well as some nails on a chair.

Go into the corner and use the Battery on the lift. Go upstairs and you’ll find 2 Sliders, a recording tape and the Key Dial. Now go back into the Stray Corridor and use the Floppy Disk on the reader next to Bedroom. Here you’ll find a Crawler, a Vinyl, Maria’s Diary E and morphine. Go through into the Penthouse. In this room you’ll be introduced to the Monster, a persistent enemy that will now chase you through many rooms. They cannot be killed, but can be knocked down for easier passage. You can also quite easily bait an attack and kite around them. Go into Children’s Bedroom to grab Anna’s Diary 03. Now go back through the other door into the Office. Grab the nails on the wheelchair and the WE-40 on the stand. You’ll also find William’s Diary 08 on the desk.
Next, return back to the Maternity Ward from near the beginning of the game and go down the ladder and through the mirror. Go upstairs to face a Walker, then use the WE-40 on the rusted gears above and below the door. Then use the Hammer on the handle to open it up.
In here you’ll find a Slider. Head through to Delivery Room to find a Wheelchair and some shotgun shells, as well as another mirror, go through and you’ll find a save point. Go into East Wing Hall and grab Maria’s Diary H on a bench (Love ), then go downstairs to deal with 2 Crawlers. Interact with the clock and change the date/time to 25 Dec 8:15:25 to receive a Jade Eye. Before you leave you will find a vial of morphine.
Return to the Office and use the Jade Eye on the bust to reveal the next puzzle. Use the Vinyl on the gramophone to hear the tune you need to replicate for the puzzle. Going clockwise, the solution is: 1, 2, 6, 6, 1, 2. This will unlock a secret passage, so head down.
Grab the nails and Anna’s Diary 05, then head around past a Walker to find Bertram’s Diary 01 and ID Card.
Return to the Main Hall and go downstairs to find a control panel with three slots, as well as a Crawler. Insert the ID Card into the left slot, Frozen Blood Medallion in the middle and Key Dial in the right. However, before you can insert the Key Dial you will have to adjust its dials to match the slots. Doing this will unlock the gate (Obsession ).
Head through and go into the Little Room to find a recording tape, electrical lance charge and a save point. Head downstairs to grab some nails, and turn right down the corridor to deal with a Slider. Now head through the door into the Infinite Room. This room is one big puzzle, with 4 doors, 4 plinths and 4 directions. There is a plaque in the corner that tells a story, and you need to go through the right door for it to progress, else it resets. With every correct step of the puzzle, a candle in the chandelier will light up. Below are the correct steps to escape:
- “New Adventure” – Golden Door
- “Fallen into the sea” – Empty Basin
- “Ursa Minor” – North
- “Furious Storm” – Wooden Door
- “Floating Alone” – Dirt Basin

After going through the final door, you’ll arrive in Passage and receive (Loop ). There’ll be 2 Walkers in your path, as well as a Waller. Head into Bunker 3B where you’ll find an electrical lance charge, Bertram’s Diary 06 and Antidote. Return to before the Infinite Room and go into the Mausoleum. There’ll be a Walker in the first room with chairs where you’ll find Bertram’s Diary 02 on a wheelchair in the front row as well as an electrical lance charge, before the path splits to the Hidden Meeting Chamber, where you can find some morphine. Continue further in to find another two Walkers. Go up to the statue and interact with its ring finger to reveal a path underneath the tomb. Before you go down, you can find some shotgun shells and a gate shortcut. Head downstairs and you’ll be in the Sewers.
In here you’ll find an electrical lance charge, Bertram’s Diary 03 and a Walker. Head downstairs again and you’ll find some Anna’s Diary 06 on a barrel and another Walker. Continue heading around and you’ll find Anna’s Diary 07 on a crate, as well as a valve you can turn to drain the water in front of the vault. Head down to the vault door to pick up the TV Dial. Go back to the forked path you walked past and head down to find some shotgun shells next to a barred fence. Continue on and you’ll enter Sewer Storage Room. In here you’ll find morphine, recording tape, Anna’s Diary 08, a save point, a closed safe and a mirror. Light the candles and head into the mirror.
You’ll arrive in Caroline’s Bedroom. Use the TV Dial on the TV and you’ll be able to cycle through 12 channels, 5 of which will show an image. You need to cycle between the 5 images in a particular order, much like a combination lock. Do note that if you over-rotate the dial at all, it will reset the puzzle. Simply turn the TV off and on to try it again. The solution is:
- Start on the Yin Yang
- Turn dial right/clockwise 8 times to the Spider
- Turn dial left/counter-clockwise 5 times to the 4-Leafed Clover
- Turn dial right/clockwise 7 times to the Tricycle
- Turn dial left/counter-clockwise 4 times to the Die
If done correctly you will receive a Sun Necklace. Return back through the mirror and the safe will now be open, containing a Moon Necklace. Combine the two to get the Eclipse Necklace. Head halfway back through the Sewers and you’ll find a door you can unlock. Head through and go up the ladder into the Office. Head into the Children’s Bedroom and use the Eclipse Necklace on the wall indent to open a secret room. Go in there to find Fishing Hook, Anna’s Diary 01, and you’ll also receive (Remembrance and Suffering ).
Return to the Office to see a button revealed on the desk, pressing it reveals VHS Tape (Dentist). Grab the tape, head to Meeting Room, use it and go to the past. Head to the end of East Wing Corridor and you’ll find William’s Diary 07 (Dedication ). Go into Private Bathroom and use Scalpel on your body to remove your own eye. Combine it with Fishing Hook to receive Fishing Hook (w/Eye). Head back down into the Sewers, go down to the vault door, and use the Fishing Hook (w/Eye) on one of the retina scanners. Use the other retina scanner yourself to open the vault (Sacrifice ). After the cutscene, you will find Bertram’s Diary 08 just before the door. Head through for the final section of the game.
At the top of the stairs you’ll find some nails, and at the base of the stairs you’ll find a machine and a closed hatch. Interact with the machine and you’ll need to line up the two grips. Stopping the machine when the moving grip is at the top left nut will line it up. Now use the Padlock you’ve had in your inventory since the very beginning to lock them together, and turn it back on to open the door.
Head down and grab an electrical lance charge next to you, then head through the door to Bunker 1A. There’ll be 2 Walkers and a Pipe Cap. Continue into the next room to find more nails. Head through the door into Bunker 2A. Take a left and you’ll find a new enemy, the Hammer, blocking a door where you’ll find another save point and the second Pipe Cap. Head down the other path and through the door to Bunker Stairs. You’ll find Bertram’s Diary 05 on a crate next to you, and some morphine behind some spike traps. Head down the stairs and continue to Bunker 3B.
There’ll be 2 more Hammers in here, as well as some shotgun shells and the final Pipe Cap in the open room in the corner. Go through the door and you’ll find some nails next to you, and if you take a left at the spike trap you’ll find Bertram’s Diary 07 (Redemption ). Continue down the path and head left to find a Walker and a door to the Prison. In here you’ll find shotgun shells by the entrance, an electrical lance charge in the first cell on the left, a Hammer blocking your way, some morphine in the last cell and a Gas Canister up the stairs to the left. Now head back out and go the opposite path to find Bunker 3A. You’ll find a first aid kit in the cabinet (Relief ), 2 Walkers, and some nails at the end of the corridor. Head through the door to Bunker Stairs and unlock the gate. Go upstairs back to Bunker 1-2B for the final puzzle.
First of all, examine your Gas Canister and open the lid, then interact with the pump to place the canister down. You now need to direct the gasoline through the pipes by capping pipes and turning valves. Valves that are parallel to the pipe are on and valves that are perpendicular to the pipe are off. See below for the solution:
Now that you have the gasoline, it is advised make a save as the decision point for the different endings is coming up shortly. This will allow you to reload your save and get them out of the way, if you so desire. This is also your last chance to fully backtrack while being able to still finish the game, so if there’s anything you missed, now is the time to get it.
Head downstairs to the water pump, add the gasoline and pull the trigger to drain the water and open the new path (Water ).
Head down into the Preparation Room. After the cutscene, you’ll be greeted by 4 Hammers, which you will have to kill in order to progress. Use your Shotgun and Electric Lance, if you’ve been collecting all the ammo you should have enough to kill them, even if you’ve killed every other enemy. Don’t use your Nailer unless you have to, as it’s best saved for after this fight. After defeating them, the Cross Key will drop down. You can also get morphine, shotgun ammo and electric lance charges from where the Hammers spawned. Use the Cross Key on the stairs to lower them.
This is where you make the first of two decisions that change the endings. Interact with the Monster and use the Antidote on them to reveal a pair of Bolt Cutters. Grab them, then continue down the elevator, but take note that this is the point of no return. In the Graveyard you’ll find a recording tape, the final save point, as well as a duplicate collectible of Bertram’s Note 02. Continue through the door and head down the stairs for the final encounter.
In order to defeat the boss, you will need to interact with 3 wheels around the area. These are protected by bulbs which cannot be attacked until you weaken the boss, 6 nails will do. Now attack one of the bulbs, either with a single lance charge, or by hitting twice with the Crowbar and dodging backwards. Once the bulb disappears, quickly interact with the wheel so the bulb doesn’t grab it again, and press the button when the wheels line up with the gap. Press the button successfully 3 times to clear that wheel. Repeat this process for the other two wheels after hurting the boss, and once you have cleared the final wheel, the boss will be dead. You can find some nails, shotgun shells and a first aid kit in the room if needed. Head up the elevator.
Head back through the areas until you reach the Meeting Room, all other paths will be blocked off. This is where you make the second decision that changes the endings. For the Good Ending, use the VHS Tape (Experiment Room) to return to Anna. Use the Bolt Cutters on her cell and talk to her. After the cutscene, use the Cross Key on the front door to leave and finish the game (Sisters and Nostalgia ).
For the Forgetfulness Ending, you have two options. First, you will have to use the Antidote on the Monster, same as in the Adoption Ending. However after defeating the boss, do not save Anna in the past and simply go to the Main Hall and leave through the front door. Alternatively, you can simply use the Scalpel on the Monster which will force you into the Forgetfulness Ending. There is no trophy tied specifically to this ending however.
In order to get the Remorse Ending, simply do not administer the Antidote to the Monster. Defeat the last boss and escape like in the Forgetfulness Ending (Remorse ) – this trophy was glitched in the earlier versions and was fixed in patch 1.03, however if you have an earlier version you will not be able to unlock this.
This concludes the complete Tormented Souls Walkthrough.
