Nothing is Real

There are eleven special poems in the game. Three will be chosen on each playthrough and appear as dictated by the script. The player can choose to read each or not,

Most of the ‘typewritten’ lines of ‘poem_special3.png are blacked out leaving a few random letters to string together, “nothingisreal”.

Of course, it is a png and it was inevitable to see what image magick might reveal:

Irregular heartbeat. Heart palpitations. Arrhythmia. I search and search, eyes scanning everything I can find on their symptoms. What is this? Shortness of breath? Chest pain? Dizziness? No. This is all wrong. Elyssa’s symptoms are nowhere near this simple. I’ve seen it twice now. The screams of pain. Sickeningly pale skin. Vomiting blood. There is no other explanation, other than that Renier’s information was a complete and utter lie.
This can’t all be coincidence. It’s not possible. I don’t know how much of this Renier is behind. But I do know this: There is something horribly wrong with this family. And I accepted the invitation to become a part of it.
I can hear Elyssa’s screams through the walls now. I listen helplessly. Renier said that he would be with her shortly. Is he in her room now? Why is she screaming even louder than before?
