"Calling its name is such a cheap price. In comparison that we had to sacrifice a life of employee in order to silence it. I think I have made an excellent choice of selecting you as the manager..."
The Nameless Fetus (O-01-15-H) is a large infant Abnormality dripping with "an unidentified yellow-brown slime". It has no legs, and has a large, fat body with a mouth stretching across its abdomen.
Ability[edit | edit source]
Its special ability is "Where's Mommy?". Once its mood becomes bad, its room will start to change as a warning to the player. Once the effect starts to become more clear, teeth will appear inside the containment room. When this happen, Nameless Fetus will start to scream and cry, dealing constant psychological damage to all the employees in the department, and decreasing the mood of other Abnormalities in the same department very quickly. If this happens, the only option the player has is to sacrifice an employee in the same department to make Nameless Fetus stop crying. However, the player does not get to choose which employee is sent as a sacrifice; the game will randomly select one employee or clerk via a roulette. The roulette does not included panicked employees. Once the selected employee arrives in Nameless Fetus' room, it will devour the employee and its mood will max out.
Origin[edit | edit source]
The details of its origin are currently unknown.
Caretaking[edit | edit source]
The Nameless Fetus responds best to nutrition and amusements. It hates violence, and doesn't care for cleanliness or consensus. The player should be cautious and not keep it out of their sight for too long, because it may begin to cry without them knowing.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output changes depending on its mood. It produces the most energy when it's at its happiest. It produces a moderate amount of energy when neutral, and drains a moderate amount of energy when distressed.
Nameless Fetus' mood gauge is divided into 3 sections, distressed, neutral and happy. Under the 55%, it will feel distressed, between 55% and 85%, it will be neutral; and above 85%, it will feel happy.
- "When the mood rating of Nameless Fetus is in a bad state, anomaly occurs in the Nameless Fetus isolation chamber."
- "After leaving the containment room for a certain period of time, Nameless Fetus started to cry."
- "Employees who heard a Nameless Fetus cry complained of a headache. In addition, each time a cry was heard, the mood rating of the Abnormalities in the department such as Nameless Fetus showed a slight decrease."
- "When Nameless Fetus is crying, you can order only sacrifice work."
- "<Name> employees were selected in Roulette for sacrifice work. The # 0 employee quietly walked into the Nameless Fetus containment room. After a few moments of noise, Nameless Fetus stopped crying."
Final Observation[edit | edit source]
|The baby never cries.
It kept that way forever.
As lack of words doesn't necessarily means lack of emotions,
Lack of crying doesn't mean lack of desire.
Since unknown time, the baby has mouth.
Instead the baby who does not know how, it cries, expresses hunger, and causes pain for the others.
|Didn't call the name.||Called the name.|
|The fetus is still crying.
You plugged your ears silently.
No sound is heard.
|No one else knows the name of the fetus.
But you know.
You called its name.
The unstoppable desire shut its mouth for a while.
Even only for a short time, the desire silenced.

Encyclopedia Entries[edit | edit source]
- "The creature takes the shape of an unborn fetus. Its skin is covered with a sticky slime-like liquid and many little visible veins. The creature's abnormally bulged eyes are usually closed. The creature always seems unsatisfied but exactly what it needs are is undetermined. It has a great obsession to being 'fed' and if it is not 'fed' regularly, its stress levels rise drastically. When it reaches a certain level of stress, it cries out loudly with a cry that mentally harms all who may be around the creature."
- "Excerpt from Interview Log #2-49#2-49 Employee F2706: "I've never seen it smile. It always seems to want something, but we can't ever fulfill it. I guess it's because that as its unsatisfied needs are so strong, when it cries, it is very destructive. When I was new here, none of my colleagues would tell me exactly what the 'feed' was. I thought it was milk or something else that little children consume. It is a child after all, even with all that grossness, but no. It only eats human flesh. Can you believe it? To stop it from crying, we have to hold a draw every once in a while. Do you know what that means?""
- "Observation Log 1-431: When I first heard that the 'Fetus without a Name' needed to be fed, I thought we need to feed it like with a spoon. It looked too weak to do anything and its mouth wasn't fully developed. And when I found out that the creature eats meat, I thought it would need to be first chewed by someone so it would become soft. When I asked my colleague about that, he laughed and said 'no that's ridiculous, we just need to leave the food and go'. But I still wondered how that creature can eat stuff. Do we serve it the succulent kind of steak that isn't even available for us in the cafeteria? Out of curiosity, I decided to sneak a peek of the feeding process. Only level 3 or higher employees are assigned to that project, but I was able to attend with a fake excuse that I was covering for someone. And I watched nervously. Would my lie be worth it? Some people came along with some large plastic bags. Does it eat that much? And when they opened the bags, I could only gape in horror. They were human corpses. And the child ate it. How? I don't want even want to imagine it. It had a large scar on its stomach; I really thought it was a kind of scar. Like a large flower, its stomach would open, dripping with slimy liquid. It was the greediest creature in the world. That night, I became a vegetarian."
