The Hangman game is one of the major plot points in Omori. The hangman game features a girl being hanged and keyboard keys, that serve as the letters.


All Routes

Upon returning to White Space after conquering Sunny's fear of heights, Omori will begin the Hangman game when he checks his laptop. Keys scattered throughout Headspace must be collected to spell out the solution: "Welcome to Black Space." Incorrect letters will slowly cause a figure to be drawn, although it is impossible to run out of guesses on the True Route.

Completing the phrase is a requirement to progress; the entrance to Black Space under Basil's house will not open until it is completed.

Hikikomori Route

If Sunny chooses to stay indoors for all three days, or alternatively goes outside on the first day and ignores Kel on the second day, three previously inaccessible letters can be collected, allowing Omori to "lose" Hangman by collecting every single letter. Doing so is a requirement to access The Abyss.

Contrary to popular belief, losing Hangman is not a requirement to enter Black Space 2. This is instead linked to defeating the three Phobia bosses in the Lost Library.

If Omori collects a correct key, the key will leave a hole that can be interacted with. These events will happen in this order.

You feel a cold breeze

Omori is prompted to reach into the hole. Doing so will make him feel a cold breeze.

You felt someone hold your hand

Omori is prompted again to reach into the hole. Doing so will make a hand reach out for him and hold his for a few seconds.

Scribbled Photos

Omori falls into Basil's real life room. There's several photos strewn around from the real life Photo Album on the ground. All of them were scribbled with a black pen.


Omori is prompted to look into the hole. Doing so will show many Somethings in a dark void.

Video Tapes

Omori falls into a dark void with a television and two tapes. Omori can now choose one of the two tapes. The left one is labelled "Omori" and the right one "Basil".

Video Tape: Omori

The tape labelled "Omori" shows Sunny trying to play on a piano accompanied with static noise.

Video Tape: Basil

The tape labelled "Basil" shows Basil looking afraid down and then at the camera.


Omori falls under water. He passes Hellmari while doing so.


Omori is prompted to look into the hole. Doing so will show a dark reflection that depicts Sunny with red eyes.


Something hovers out of the hole.

You are not my son

Omori falls into a clearing in the Lost Forest. North of where he fell is a man that is trying to cut down a tree. If interacted, the man will say: "Stay away... You are not my son..." and "Why won't you fall?".

Screenshots of the Locations


Losing Hangman in the alternate route will result in the game crashing after a minor jumpscare. However, the game will make an autosave before this happens, and reopening the game will immediately load the data, resulting in no progress loss.


  • Early in development, the Keys were called "Blackletter(s)."
  • Basil's tape originally had a few frames before it. These frames depicted Basil staring at Mari, who fell down the stairs.
    • This was likely cut due to revealing the nature of Mari's death - a major plot point - too early in the story.
  • The "You are not my son" room can be accessed normally through Black Space 2.
  • No other character beyond Omori will acknowledge the Hangman game, nor its letters.
  • Notably, Omori is also the only character capable of picking up letters. If anyone else is tagged, the letters will be blurry and impossible to collect.
