Silent Hill: Downpour
Murphy Pendleton must explore the building to meet with Bobby Ricks. Floors 1 through 3 are home to a library. The only other accessible floor is 18; this is where Ricks hosts the radio station, WLMN FM. According to a simplified map of the building, floor 4 is an academy, floor 8 features a restaurant and floor 12 is a town museum. The labels for all other floors are scratched out. After Murphy, Ricks and Anne Cunningham are attacked by Screamers on the top floor, Murphy attempts to escape. After finding some diluent, he lights a pile of rags on fire with the lighter, which causes a transition to the Otherworld where the Void appears and chases Murphy. After the chase, Murphy descends in an elevator ending in a suspended cage. The cage will move around through a prison-like setting, after which it crashes and Murphy must once again run from the Void. The chase ends quickly, and Murphy must find a way forward amidst falling cages (sometimes containing Screamers), huge swinging blades and rapidly turning clock hands. At the end of the Otherworld sequence, Murphy encounters a man in a wheelchair beyond a small staircase, but when he tries to approach him, the staircase turns into a ramp causing Murphy to slide, somehow ending up hanging from the hands of the giant clock at the top of the clock tower. He hangs on for dear life, but loses grip of the hand as it ticks once. Seeming to have fallen to his death, he instead awakens on a park bench in front of the clock tower unscathed but startled.
- Several paintings in the building depict images from other games or of later parts of Downpour:
- To the right of the projector, where Murphy needs to put the slide in, there is a film reel labeled "Vatra Wood".
