"We should look around. If this really is Zero Sr.'s room, there might be some clues!"
— Quark, before searching the Director's Office

The Director's Office is an escape room behind the rightmost white Chromatic Door in Warehouse B. Sigma, Tenmyouji, and Quark search this room on Tenmyouji's route.



Concept art.

The Director's office is a small, boxy room, presumably used as an office for whoever Zero is during their time in this place. The walls are made of wood, and there are various objects around the room, including a suit of armor and a weird machine on the ground. Some of these objects have letters written in red paint on them. A computer sits on top of a desk to the right, locked with a password. There is a deer head mounted on the wall, and bookshelves holding books and a bottle of alcohol. Propped up against a wall is an electronically locked cabinet and a glass display case with a globe sitting on it nearby. Oddly, there is a balloon floating in the center of the room.


Sigma accesses the Director's Office after going through the white Chromatic Door on the right, also going with Tenmyouji and Quark. Once arriving at the office, Quark says that they might find something that has to do with Zero here and the three begin investigating.


Tenmyouji's Picture

Akane Kurashiki.

While investigating the room, Sigma gets a glance of Tenmyouji's photo of a young girl. He says that the girl in the photo is Akane Kurashiki and that he has been searching for her for a long time. Quark tells Sigma that she was Tenmyouji's first love and that he occasionally talks to the photo when no one is watching.

Once Sigma opens the safe, he finds two star keys, and the exit key, Sigma takes one card while giving Tenmyouji and Quark the other. After this, they leave the director's office and head back to Warehouse A. On their way back, Tenmyouji discovers that he left his photo of Akane in the office. He and Quark return to the office to pick it up, while Sigma returns to Warehouse A alone.



Let's chat about termites!

Sigma finds a hologram of Zero Sr. in the Director's Office while searching for Tenmyouji and Quark prior to the third round of the AB Game. In his message to Sigma, Zero Sr. mentions termites, how a termite mound is similar to a rhizome, and likens humanity to termites. He says that mankind might be building something in unison they are not aware of and can only be appreciated by the intelligence of a higher order. Every human is an "oblivious cog in a tremendous machine programmed by millions of years of human DNA."

He then gives Sigma the password for Bomb 1 (BQZ RGJ DXR). He asks Sigma if he is aware of his time jumping abilities and warns him not to tell anyone about their meeting. Before the message ends, Zero Sr. says that he looks forward to speaking with him in person. It is revealed that Tenmyouji and Quark saw the hologram, which leads them to betray Sigma.

Connect the Dots



This minigame plays exactly the same as the minigame in the PEC, the player must connect the dots using the map of the world file. This is harder than the PEC version because there is only one solution and the paths to the dots must follow that solution.

Business Card Holder


Business cards have preferences too...

In this minigame, the player must use the hints on the business card report to arrange 12 business cards in the correct order. The correct positions are:

Bob Ellen Sophie
Ann Chris John
Tony Lola Ian
Carole Michael Kate

Tangram Puzzle


Irritating, as the system doesn't always recognize the shape.

This optional minigame is accessed after receiving the escape password from the tablet. In this minigame, the player must use shape parts to create a parallelogram. After completing this minigame, the player will receive the secret file password to enter into the tablet: IILP.
