The S.P.I.N system (Sanity, Professionalism, Investigation, Neurosis) keeps track of every decision you make, changing how other characters react and the actions available to you.
List of attributes[edit | edit source]
|Sanity||Irrational choices, looking at unexplained objects, interacting with the paranormal||• Low sanity leads to hallucinations and eventual breakdown.|
|Professionalism||Taking actions and making choices as a detective would||• Low professionalism gives you options that are not entirely legal, for example breaking and entering. |
• High professionalism makes others respect you.
|Investigation||Searching for clues, trying to solve the case||• High investigative skills let you notice more hotspots and items to interact with.|
|Neurosis||Repeating the same action more than once, speaking to characters after conversations have finished, randomly interacting with objects||• If Detective Itō becomes highly neurotic her sanity decreases faster and is harder to regain.|
