Finding All Of Omori's Hangman Keys Is No Easy Task

Omori is a fantastic psychological horror RPG made by Omocat. Its story follows Omori, a quiet black-and-white boy who lives in a blank white void called Whitespace with only a tissue box, a sketchbook, a computer, a cat, and a mysterious black lightbulb to keep him company. Omori ventures to the colorful world of Headspace to play with his colorful friends, until one of them goes missing. The adventure that follows is full of powerful emotions, more than a few scares, and one of the best explorations of how people deal with grief and trauma I have ever seen in a video game. If you enjoyed Undertale for its wacky cast of characters and moral dilemmas, you will most likely love Omori.

Like any compelling RPG, Omori is full of mysteries. One of the big overarching mysteries of Omori is the hangman puzzle. 26 keys from Omori's keyboard are scattered all over Headspace, and if you manage to collect them all, let's just say that something very interesting will happen...

Technically, you only need 12 out of 26 keys to complete the puzzle, but completionists will want to find them all! Some keys are only accessible after a certain choice that locks you into one route, so if you want to find every key, you may need to replay the game a couple of times. Here is a guide to where all of the hangman keys are in Omori.

The Letter "C"

Once Omori gets over his fear of heights, there are several new areas you can access. One of these areas is the Pinwheel Forest in the clouds. To find it, head south from the playground and then east at the sign. Then, head to the northeast corner of this map to find a long ladder leading up into the sky. The "C" will be sitting on a bench straight ahead.

The Letter "G"

This letter can only be found on an alternate route when there's one day left. Go back to the Frozen Lake and look inside the igloo, where you'll see a trapdoor. Talk to Captain Spaceboy's dad inside his house, and he'll give you some batteries. Put the batteries into the plastic fish, and then stand in the summoning circle in the basement.

The Letter "H"

The "H" key is hidden deep within a secret area of the Pyrefly Forest, the Lost Forest. To find it, go to the last room before the long bridge, the same room as the Rare Bear. Go on the path to the southeast, and you will come across an area with 5 Spidercats. You will have to distract each one by lighting a candle, and sneaking past quickly to cut the next web. You'll need quick reflexes for this, or else you will be caught and have to free your friends to start over at the beginning of the area. Once you are through, you will meet Daddy Longlegs. Follow the paths with the ghost bunnies to head deeper into the Lost Forest, and at the end you will find the "H" key.

The Letter "I"

The "I" is located in a cell in the southeast of Sweetheart's dungeon. To get to it, you'll need to go down in the lower tunnels and climb up the ladder furthest to the right. You'll end up in the cell next to it, where you can hit the button on the wall to retract the spikes in front of the cell door.

The Letter "J"

In Sweetheart's Castle, head right when you exit the dungeon area. Go through the big door, and you'll be in a kitchen where some Sprout Moles try to hire your crew as sous chefs. Ignore this and head to the door straight up. Go down the big red carpet to find a cage with the "J" key floating inside. Switch to Aubrey to smash it open, and then back to Omori to claim your prize. By the way, the phrase the French-speaking Sprout Mole near this key is saying translates to "Get out of my room or I'll call the police!".

In the Last Resort, you'll need to go up to the fourth floor by going through a hole in the first room you find. The fourth floor is under construction, but with Aubrey's skills you'll be able to get up to the "R" key.

The Letter "Z"

The "Z" key can only be found in an alternate route. To get to the "Z" key, you'll need to talk to a hitchhiker at the left end of the Underwater highway, down the ladders south of Mari. He will take you to the Abyss. Simply head to the end of the tunnel, and if this is the last letter you needed, reload your game and head onwards. Enjoy the secrets you've unlocked!
