|Name of the file: The Suffering : Ties That Bind - Hints - Author: ANO - [PC]|
Successfully complete the "Drowning Pool" level. You will appear in a "Hellhole" in a building. You will see Ramse Truman sitting on the floor, who will tell you about his findings in both games in the series. Explore building and destroy the Mainliner needles on the floor and stuck in bodies. Also destroy the three Slayer's heads located on the shelf at the front door, on the desk near the television, and on the desk near the "Hellhole". The blocked door at the "Hellhole" room can now be opened. It leads to a programmers room that contains dirty pictures, the lead programmer's body at a desk, various other game discs (including Mortal Kombat and The Suffering), and a telephone message from a patient of Dr. Killjoy from the original The Suffering.
Hint: Rescuing the police officer:
At one point in the game, you will encounter a police officer who will ask you to free him. He will also tell you not to turn the three valves in front of you or he will die. If you want to save him, you must first have a full insanity bar. You can get to that state by going back to the previous room and killing the respawning enemies. Once you have a full insanity bar, open the door and go into the room with the three lockers on the wall. Go into the room after that. Look around you should see a broken wall. Transform into your insane form and carefully destroy the broken wall, making sure you do not kill the police officer. Transform back, and when the police officer runs out and sits down, your good deed will be done. To progress into the level, turn the three valves and stand back. When they explode the previously inaccessible room to the left of the valves will now be open.
In one of the sewer levels, your dead son Cory says that "We all float down here." This is a direct quote from Stephen King's bestselling novel and miniseries It.
Mortal Kombat: Deception reference:
Toward the beginning of the game, you will have to go to Torque's apartment. Afterwards when you get out, you will enter a shop. After the door in the back of the room opens, you will be in a room with a baseball bat in the corner. Go to the bat and look down to see some copies of Mortal Kombat: Deception on the ground.
