Not to be confused with Control Room from Virtue's Last Reward.
"This is probably where transmissions to the outside world happen."
— Akane, after waking up

Control is an escape room that is found within the Monty Hall fragment for C-Team. It is used to regulate ventilation, utilities, and communications within the Underground Shelter. It is searched by Carlos, Akane Kurashiki, and Junpei Tenmyouji.


The room regulates the ventilation, water, and electricity running through the underground shelter. Surveillance cameras are available, but the communication grid to the outside world is down. The ceiling has a fire containment system that puts out fires by releasing carbon dioxide.


C-Team wakes up in the room. While Junpei tries to force the door open, Akane comments on the number of monitors and Carlos, as a firefighter, immediately notices the extinguisher on the ceiling.

The Monty Hall problem. The game plays this fairly, so while switching will increase your odds of getting the correct locker, it is still possible switching will result in a game over.


  • The music is a remix of "Monitor" in the Security room.
