"REMEMBER"

I was watching some peeps play DreadOut since I don't have the game, but then I noticed something funky. Something real funky. You know how after Lin gets stuck in the school and when she goes into the hallway where the Babi Ngepet is, there was a phone call first. Well I was looking at Lin's phone really hard out of curiosity and I noticed she had new messages, a missed phone call on the thingy. But then...

Remember

Remember?

Um...Okay.

I paused it at the right time and "Private Number" did stop briefly as "REMEMBER".

I'm not sure what it's asking Lin to remember, maybe what happened in her dream (demo)?

I'm starting to think that Lin's a ghost. You know, she never really existed. Just at one point otw back "home", she kind of appears in the car and she influenced everyone's memories to act like she existed, but she didn't. All the memories were fabricated unintentionally by Linda and the whole game is just the ghosts telling Lin to remember that she's actually a ghost and was not supposed to exist.

That actually is really sad, I hope that this won't happen.

Anyways, let me know what you guys think of this little tidbit. I wonder if this was intentional or not~

I believe Linda and the Lady in Red is connected.

I'm pretty sure that the Lady is Nyai Ronggeng, a legendary dancer who said to be the prettiest women in her time. It's said that many nobles and satria (knights) were competing mercilessly to be her lover, some of the even kill each other in honorable duels with her as a prize for the victor.

There's a few versions of her legend, but all of them are ended with bad endings. Nyai Ronggeng is a Sundanese, Linda is a Sundanese. And in Sundanese version of the tale she died horribly when a knight accidentally stab her with his kris when she's trying to pacify the duel. The devs office is in Bandung, the capital city for the Sundanese folks. So I bet they must know this legend from the locals.

The legend said after her dead, The Lady was tormented and exiled from the realm of the dead because she was still too attached to the men's world. Have no place to go she wanders once again in the realm of the living to unleash her rage and sorrow.

In many traditional Sundanese hamlets, people still believe that after a girl celebrates her 16th birthday (or her 17th birthday, sorry I forgot), she must be escorted from the villages immediately and her faraway relatives (which usually live far away from Sunda) will look after her for a few years before they can send her back to her village. Such proccess must be done for the girl safety, because Nyai Ronggeng will kidnap every girl who she thinks is prettier than her in her 17/18th birthday. The Lady will take her to the spiritual realm and she will be disappear forever without a trace.

And maybe it is time for Linda to be kidnapped??

Sorry for my English and I'll try my best to answer your questions if you guys have any regarding to the local myths.

Wow, dude I think you just spoiled the ending for me @.@ This seems like the most plausible theory in existance, now I feel like I know how the story is going to end :U

It could be that Ira is the pretty girl since she's the one that's possessed at the moment, but she could be using Ira to get to Linda, since she is Lin's best friend after all. Maybe the ending is that Lin offers to be spirited away at the cost that her friends be freed or with Ira the same way. I would like to say it's Ira, but in my opinion, Linda is awfully pretty :U

Lin's birthday occured on May 5th and the game was released 10 days after that (May 15th). Your description fits the bill quite nicely. That's why I was wondering to myself why Lin's birthday is so darn close to the release date when all the others are far away or even why the developers annouced a birthdate in the first place. In my opinion, I thought they were being too specific, but now I know. The developers are hinting something by revealing Lin's birthday. So it really could be Linda that is the "pretty girl" that's going to be spirited away, buts somehow she found a way to fight back.

But then how do the three sisters tie in? I heard the three sisters (ghosts) will tie in with the storyline, maybe they were the victims of the Nyai Ronggeng..

Sorry if I spoiled anything for you, I don't mean it, really.

I don't really know about the three sisters too, there must be hidden sides of the legend then. Or maybe it's the devs improvisation??

And I hope Indonesian fellows could tell us more about the whole legend and surrounding lores. I'm an Indonesian too but I was raised in Azerbaijan and only recently came home to my homeland. My Javanese and Balinese friends tell me some local mythos including the Nyai Ronggeng legend, but there are still a lot of things I don't know about my country and its history. Nevertheless I'm so glad to be home.

So please be nice with me guys. =)

Just found out from Google that the the ending of the Nyai Ronggeng legend is pretty darn gruesome, but might give some light to the 3 sisters theory.

((According to one of the links I found on the net it turns out that after her death, Nyai Ronggeng's body was mutilated into 3 parts, her head, her body, and her limbs, and was given to the 3 suitors that competed for her hand in marriage.))

It might be that the 3 sisters represent the 3 parts of her body.

That is pretty gruesome, I'd be pretty upset if Linda was seperated into three parts. In fact, I hope no one dies. I said it before and I'll say it again, I will be extremely upset if anyone dies.

What if the 3 sisters are actually the suitors, but since they possess Nyai Ronggeng's bodypart, they happen to look like her. This isn't a very strong theory, but it popped into my mind as I was thinking about it. 

I double checked and I heard there's going to be an underwater/sewer level in Act II. I'm expecting a lot of things to be there.

I believe the REMEMBER might refers to Ira's number. To get the true ending, you have to prove to the Third Sister you know your best friend enough to remember her phone number, right? So maybe that was a hidden warning to the players meaning that Ira's number was going to be important, something to be remembered. Maybe Ira's phone call was an attempt to help Linda, because she knew Lin would eventually find her and the Third Sister inside her was going to test her dear friend somehow.

Maybe somehow it's connected to Lady In Red.

This is Ira's VOICE, not her PHONE NUMBERS.

The phone call actually from Shelly. Hmm, I think some of your idea is right. Ira's voice spake when the phone got some problems.

Just an easter egg, that Ira's number is 62 (Indonesian phone code) then 37323688 (D-R-E-A-D-O-U-T).  You know this from the old cellphone : 2 = ABC, 3 = DEF, 4= GHI, 5=JKL, 6=MNO, 7=PQRS, 8= TUV, 9= WXYZ. So the number is 623732688
