The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene – The touch-and-go aspect of Kate and Mark’s relationship was previously demonstrated in The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me. The two appear to have recently broken up, based on hints from other characters, and neither of them is handling it particularly well.
While Kate is doing the complete opposite and attempting to process her emotions, Mark requested time off in order to clear his thoughts. But in this scene, we witness their first significant exchange. By the end of the shoot, will they reignite their romance? You get to decide that.
As part of our commitment to provide you with complete coverage, we have played the game multiple times. The Devil in Me, however, emphasises making decisions that count, just like the other games in The Dark Pictures Anthology. As a result, the game features a lot of tiny details, and we recognise that we might have missed a few.
Mark’s Room – Hesitant Or Excited? – The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene Guide
Without knocking, Kate walks in and recommends to Mark that they go away together to gather some footage for the show without consulting Charlie. She can see that he is bothered by something, but he is unwilling to say what it is straight immediately.
Kate nevertheless insists, mentioning a job opportunity. Mark declined to save himself a train every single day. Here, Mark offers three responses.
- Cute: Make a joke about your profession.
- Earnest: That wasn’t the best thing to do.
- Stay silent.
Kate appears irritated if you make fun of your employment because she wants to have a serious chat with you. She insists, “If you’re sincere,” but Mark cuts her off. Kate keeps quiet about how frustrated she is that Mark won’t talk to her.
In any case, the two decide that natural light will look the best for their photo shoot, and when Kate says she “just wants to look decent,” Mark has the opportunity to congratulate her.
- Jamie is capable in setting up lights.
- You look good in any light, which is reassuring.
- Stay silent.
Kate claims she just wants to get some work done and is sick of the rest of the crew’s attitude, if Mark is enthused. If you decide to reassure her, she giggles and suggests that it’s working since you’re making her feel good. If you remain silent, Kate will inform you that she wants the project’s director of photography to provide input.
Kate seemed conflicted about how to respond to the group’s reaction following a comment about their separation and Mark letting everyone imagine Kate ditched him and made her the bad guy. Three responses come from Mark.
- Hesitant: Can I make a comment?
- Excited: We are entering the prime time. Let’s leave.
- Stay silent.
Whichever decision you make in this particular discussion section will have a significant impact on how the topic develops moving forward.
Hesitant – The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene Guide
If you’re unsure, Mark will remind you that they decided to keep their breakup amicable and will beg Kate to stop talking about him. This opens up a whole branch of conversation that you can only have if Mark speaks up, giving you an intriguing glimpse into their interaction. Mark has three possible responses after Kate apologises and restates her intention to concentrate on his work.
- Serious: The split is more difficult than I anticipated.
- Positive: You’re correct. I apologise.
- Stay silent.
When Mark tries to be serious, Kate reminds him of what he said when they broke up and won’t let him complain before leaving for the hallway.
Kate says nothing more if you’re on board before exiting the room to go to the balcony. Before leaving the room to continue the shoot, Kate observes your silence and expresses disappointment that you have nothing to say.
If you erred on the side of excitement earlier, Kate taunts Mark about the phrase “the golden hour” rather than asking if he can say anything. Without saying a word about breaking up, they continue to search for the balcony.
Finding The Shot – The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene Guide
The two leave Mark’s room after talking there to start their filming. After Mark recommends the balcony, they start looking for a route out from there.
Before you go too far, Mark’s camera inventory item is introduced to you. Finding all of Mark’s crime scene photo ops as well as photographing every member of your crew will earn you prizes and milestones.
Unfortunately, Mark sometimes appears to enjoy facing the incorrect direction when you tell him to take a picture, and shifting him while he’s staring through his camera can be a challenge.
Kate will close the open door near the stairs she’s standing by if you try to enter her room. She cautions you about boundaries and exhorts you to continue your search.
To proceed, climb the stairway to the left of her room. The chapter’s photo premonition can be found in one of the halls along the walls. Although the set of double doors is your final objective, there is some amazing world-building as well. At the top of the steps, to the right and close by, is where Kate is positioned.
Getting To The Balcony – The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene Guide
The hotel’s library is located in this gloomy, large room, and it contains a number of secrets before you go. The Groundskeeper can be seen outside the windows in the corner, but that isn’t a hint.
All three of the game’s secrets from this chapter are located in the library. After the clock jumpscare, there is a J. Morello Holmes book on the desk, a newspaper clipping that Mark needs his monopod to retrieve from a book on the top shelf, and Sherman Tape 1 in a tape player on a table in the side room.
This room contains the balcony you’re looking for, but of course the door is locked. Send Mark to the library’s side room, where he can see a key hanging from the door’s glass pane. But as nothing is easy, that door is also locked.
In order to create a succession of platforms for himself to jump to, Mark will need to move the shelves around on the first floor of this room.
Push a cart down to the room’s first level by climbing the ladder and wrapping around the upper level. Then, go back to the first floor and use the cart there. Push the cart straight ahead from where you found it to cross the first significant gap, then ascend to the platform you can now reach.
To find a ladder leading to the first floor, turn left and duck beneath a collapsing beam in the following room. Mark can lift a sizable wooden bookcase that has a metal handle on the outside and transfer it. Do this, then insert it into the large gap on the second floor that you noticed when you first entered.
Return to the entrance by climbing up it, jump across to your new platform, and then lower the ladder on the opposite side. Return to the top and jump across this new platform after climbing back down and moving the massive shelf into the area of debris next to the ladder that you just dropped.
You ought to see a sizable hole in the wall near the end of the second platform.
Climb through the hole, descend using the adjoining ladder, then climb back up through the next opening to reach the room holding the key to the balcony by using the ledge across from you. You can exit once you’ve obtained it by using the door that was previously locked just behind you.
On The Balcony – The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me: Scouting – Scene Guide
Return to the locked door in the library with the key in hand and use it to open the balcony door. Another conversation between Mark and Kate occurs as they get ready to start shooting, and you participate as Mark.
Before the shoot, Kate checks herself in a small mirror, and Mark says one of two things.
- Insistent: You believed we were rushing?
- Encouragement: You appear to be in good health.
Following this quick exchange of words, Mark discovers Marie’s jewellery from the prologue chapter. Additionally, he finds H. H. Holmes’ original hat, an animatronic that will emerge and attempt to stab the visitors. You don’t need to respond, but doing so prompts Kate and Mark to start conversing once more.
It’s almost dinnertime, Erin shouts to Charlie from the lobby down below. Kate and Mark start talking about Charlie after hearing her mention him, which seamlessly transitions into the following scene.
