Evil Tonight – Critical Item Walkthrough Guide

This walkthrough will explain how and where to get every item that is required to access the final boss fight.

Guide to Critical Item Walkthrough

Introduction

Evil Tonight is a game where you progress by collecting items. This walkthrough will explain how and where to get every item that is required to access the final boss fight. Ultimately what you need are 12 diary pages and the Ornamental Key, so those items will determine the organization of this guide.

Orientation

The hardest part might be acquainting yourself with my location reference guide. I’m using numbers instead of pictures so that the walkthrough is less visually obtrusive (and more conceptually obtrusive).

There are three Areas. Area 1 is the Student Residence Hall where you begin. Area 2 is the second building you enter. Area 3 is the studio and the industrial area above the garden. I will refer to locations inside these areas as either Hallways or Rooms, unless another term would be more clear. All Rooms and Hallways are inside, so doors that lead outside do not factor into our room counts. We count rooms starting from the hallway’s entrance. There are three hallways in the game that branch out up and down. When that happens, we’ll restart the count as “upper rooms” and “lower rooms”. So “room 1”, “upper room 1”, and “lower room 1” are all different rooms in area 1, hallway 2.

Area 1 contains

  • Hallway 1 (leads to)
    • Rooms 1-4
  • Hallway 2 (leads to)
    • The Reception Area (leads to)
      • Reception Area File Room
    • Rooms 1-2
    • Upper Rooms 1-2
    • Lower Room 1 (leads to)
      • Lower Room 1’s barricaded room
  • Ventilation area accessible from hallway 1, room 1.

Area 2 contains

  • Lobby Left Room
  • Lobby Right Room
  • Left 1st Floor Hallway
    • Rooms 1-3
    • Upper Rooms 1-2
  • Right 1st Floor Hallway
    • Room 1
      • Horse Statue Room and then the Pepe Room
    • Upper Rooms 1-2
    • Lower Room 1
  • Left 2nd Floor Hallway
    • Rooms 1-4 (starting the count from the lobby entrance)
  • Right 2nd Floor Hallway
    • Rooms 1-4 (starting the count from the lobby entrance)

Area 3 contains

  • The Studio (The room between the industrial area and the garden. Is it a studio? I don’t know what it is.)
  • Rooms 1-4

How to Get the Diary Pages

The diary pages do not need to be collected in a certain order. I am presenting them in the order in which you can first access them. This is probably not the ideal order for a speedrun.
