The Womb Maze, area 1

The Womb Maze (胎内迷宮) is the deepest part of the Visceral World. It houses the Viscera effect.

The maze itself consists of several visceral areas connected by doorways. There are also several special areas outside of the maze, but connected to it with teleports: pairs of objects which transport the player to another location when stepped between them.

The player can get to this area from the Visceral World. The western entrance leads to the northern doorway of area 1. The eastern entrance leads to the northern doorway of area 2. Southwestern teleport in area 1 leads to the Smile (笑顔) area, the southeastern one leads to the Demon (鬼) area. Southwestern teleport in area 2 leads to the Smile area. Eastern teleport in area 2 leads to the Purity (無垢) area. Southern doorway leads to the central doorway of area 3.

The western doorway in area 3 leads to the eastern doorway of area 4. The eastern doorway in area 3 leads to the southern doorway of area 4. The northern teleport in area 4 leads to the Purity, the western teleport leads to the Demon. The western doorway in area 4 leads to area 5. To go through this doorway, the player has to use the teleporter from below, go around it and again move through it from below. Area 5 leads to area 6, which contains the Viscera effect. Sabitsuki can get it by interacting with the body of an Onigo.

The Smile area consists of two maps. The first one contains one Fetus, which disables Sabitsuki's equipped effect, but cannot harm her otherwise. There are three teleports here. The red one with a big mouth and what looks like eyes underneath it leads to area 1. The red with three mouths on each thing leads to area 2. The white with a huge mouth leads to the second Smile area, which contains nothing but the weird white and red objects and a teleport back.

The Demon area also consists of two maps. The first one contains 5 Fetuses that too are visible to Sabitsuki. There are three teleports here. The red one that looks like demon head with horns leads to area 4. The red one that has a mouth leads to area 1. The red and white one leads to the second Demon area, which contains a weird figure: three head-like things with white hair, one of them has an open mouth, the other seems to have horns and is bleeding, the last one has no distinctive features.

The Purity area is a calm and foggy place, and the lullaby tune is played here. There are three teleporters here: the wider white and black one leads to area 2, the narrow one leads to area 4, and the black one leads to the second Purity area, which contains the Womb Maze Kaibutsu. Provoking it corrupts the Purity, and when Sabitsuki tries to use the teleporter to leave this room, or leaves through other means and tries to come back, she will end up in the corrupted Purity. When Rust visits this area, there are three Fetuses and no Kaibutsu.

Trivia

  • The names of special areas match the names of the Empty Boxes.

Theories

  • The figure in the second Demon area might represent Sabitsuki. One of the heads resembles the Inner Demon, which also has horns and bleeds.
