DEEPER WELL is a location in OMORI. It is an aquatic location that can be accessed right at the end of the UNDERWATER HIGHWAY. It also serves as the home of HUMPHREY and several creatures that seem to be aware of the truth.

GEOGRAPHY

The DEEPER WELL is located north of the end of the UNDERWATER HIGHWAY after a long bridge.

The location features unique flora unlike others seen previously in the game, as well as unusual characters similar to Yume Nikki's neon creatures. Numerous water-filled holes transport the player between rooms.

Throughout DEEPER WELL, numerous tiny SOMETHINGs appear. Interacting with them will play a distorted and faster version of the "I'm sorry" noise that other mini SOMETHINGs make throughout BLACK SPACE 1 and 2.

The end of DEEPER WELL is a large cliff face with a skull at the top. Ascending and entering the skull leads to HUMPHREY's place of residence.

STORY

TWO DAYS LEFT

As the party ventures further and further into DEEPER WELL, they begin to realize that they're forgetting more and more details of who BASIL is. At the end, they meet HUMPHREY, who does not guide them on their search for BASIL but lets them know that SWEETHEART entered him in search of the SEA WITCHES that take residence within.

After the party beats HUMPHREY, they have completely forgotten about BASIL. The whirlpool where HUMPHREY once rested now leads into a red stream, and the party is stopped along the way as a disembodied voice provides exposition on OMORI's past journeys and BLACK SPACE. The end of the red stream opens into a shortcut back to the NEIGHBOR'S ROOM.

ONE DAY LEFT

During the final day of the OMORI ROUTE, the party can return to DEEPER WELL, either through the normal entrance or by interacting with a toilet outside LAST RESORT. The area is slightly different, however; all of the creatures residing there have disappeared except for CIPHER, and three pages of SHEET MUSIC are scattered throughout the area. These pages of SHEET MUSIC are required to open the three SOMETHING fights in the LOST LIBRARY and access BLACK SPACE 2.

HUMPHREY has also returned to his usual location (making the shortcut from DEEPER WELL to NEIGHBOR'S ROOM unavailable). If the party has recieved the GIANT CHECK from MR. JAWSUM, they can feed it to HUMPHREY in order to re-access his insides.

NOTABLE AREAS

DEEPERWELL PATH

DeeperWell Path (Screenshot).png

The first area of the DEEPER WELL is known as the DEEPERWELL PATH. From there, the player will be introduced to the dampened atmosphere of the area with various jellyfish, translucent lamps, and platforms containing water. One thing to note is that running for DEEPER WELL is disabled until reaching the TRENCH and onwards.

When arriving there for the first time, simply continue going up north. The party will eventually reach a large platform with a strange water-filled hole that functions as a whirlpool portal.

Deeper Well First Hallway (Screenshot).png

In addition, a short cutscene plays out, revealing that the friend group is slowly losing their memories of BASIL, hinting of something ominous occurring offscreen. Regardless, continue moving forward by entering the whirlpool.

You will then be taken to a long, darkened hallway filled with aquatic florals and waterfalls. The player can also hear the sounds of a waterfall playing in the background. Head over to the next water-filled portal to continue.

DEEPERWELL FALLS

DeeperWell Falls (Screenshot).png

The second area is known as the DEEPERWELL FALLS. After entering the previous whirlpool portal, head up north and you'll reach a large island that resembles a hub of some sort. Various waterfalls are shown in the background. This is also where BLANK, one of DEEPER WELL's many residents, can be found.

Most of DEEPER WELL's residents can only be understood properly when speaking to them as OMORI. Speaking to them with any other party member will simply lead to them only hearing mumbling. BLANK will notice that the OMORI's memories aren't free. They then inform him that to obtain another lost memory, another memory must be shrouded but solemnly mentions that all memories will fade away eventually.

There are three whirlpool portals, each leading to a different location. The only whirlpool portal that leads to the TRENCH is the top one. The other two portals will simply bring the party to dead-end areas. Note that almost all whirlpool rooms contain the other DEEPER WELL residents and a few watermelons containing items.

WHIRLPOOL ROOMS

LEFT WHIRLPOOL

Deeper Well Left Area.png

Taking the whirlpool to the west leads to a series of a few small islands.

There is not much to do there but you can interact with two DEEPER WELL NPCs: EMPTY and NULL. Both of them will tell OMORI cryptic messages regarding the truth behind HEADSPACE's existence like with the other residents. Continuing west leads to a dead-end as mentioned before. A LARGE FACE can be found there, and can be smashed by using AUBREY's tag ability.

DEEPER WELL FACE.png

This only works if you have already spoken to the one in ORANGE OASIS. Entering the hole will transport the party to an aquatic alcove. Inside features a watermelon containing a single JAM PACKETS.

Other than that, simply head back to the center hub as going west won't bring the party any further through the areas of DEEPER WELL.

RIGHT WHIRLPOOL

Deeper Well Right Area.png

Taking the whirlpool to the east transports the party to a long hallway with two pathways. Heading south brings you to another whirlpool next to PARVENU and a watermelon containing a RAIN CLOUD.

Continuing down that path brings you to a small island where ABSENT can be found. This is also where one of the three SHEET MUSIC for the LOST LIBRARY can be found on ONE DAY LEFT of the OMORI ROUTE.

Sheet Music (Location 1).png

Note that collecting all SHEET MUSIC will allow the player to refight all fear bosses corresponding to SUNNY's fears. Heading east brings the group to two islands of varying sizes. The NPCs MINUS and DECAY are located there as well.

The island at the deep bottom holds another SHEET MUSIC for the player to obtain. Other than that, simply head back to the center hub as going east won't bring the party any further through the areas of DEEPER WELL.

TOP WHIRLPOOL

Deeper Well Top Area.png

As mentioned before, entering the top whirlpool portal allows the player to progress. Doing so first brings you to another hallway. At the entrance features a small pool with a watermelon holding LIFE JAM. AUGHT can be found within this hallway and can be interacted like the other NPCs. To keep moving forward, simply enter the whirlpool located north of the entrance.

Upon doing so, the player will be brought to a cave entrance. The ladder below the group is where CIPHER and the last SHEET MUSIC are located. Unlike the other NPCs found here, CIPHER is the only one who will not disappear from DEEPER WELL on ONE DAY LEFT. Entering the cave will bring the group to the next subarea of DEEPER WELL.

HALLWAY OF HANDS

Hallway of Hands (Screenshot).png

After entering the cave, the player will be brought to a long hallway where the party can swim through to progress. The walls shown feature multiple paintings of hands that resemble the ones found in WHITE SPACE. Eventually, you will be brought to a diversion, one that gives the player heavy hints of the game's backstory.

Going upwards leads to a small area featuring a mysterious coral tree known as the BRANCH CORAL. STRANGER is also briefly encountered here, sitting on the swing the BRANCH CORAL is holding before slowly vanishing. You can talk to the BRANCH CORAL and it will answer questions regarding BASIL, BIG YELLOW CAT, and WHITE SPACE.

Deeper Well (Branch Coral).png

Afterwards, you will be able to leave, not before the tree offers OMORI a chance to obtain more power through a sacrifice. You can either accept or deny the BRANCH CORAL's offer of "sacrifice" but doing any choice will not influence any endings or outcomes in the game, but will only give OMORI the stat boost if accepted.

Either way, the player can continue swimming through the hallway until reaching another whirlpool portal. Entering it leads to one of the final mandatory areas of DEEPER WELL, and by extension, HEADSPACE.

SACRIFICE AREA

Sacrifice Room (Sunny Apple).png

If choosing to accept the BRANCH CORAL's sacrifice, it will then tell OMORI to stay still as the screen darkens. The screen will then rotate to OMORI's front view as a reddish pool forms underneath him, and transports him to a strange room filled with various dark-colored hands can be seen emerging from the waters

Unlike the other DEEPER WELL areas, this room is rather ominous in nature as it notably features a darkish-red tree holding a single apple from its branch. Interacting with the apple will cause it to transform into SUNNY's head. You will then be given an option to eat the "apple".

Accepting this offer will lead to a darkened screen where OMORI devours the "apple", complete with sounds of him slowly chewing into the fruit. The screen will also transition to a distorted cutscene similar to the flashback of SUNNY's near-death experience with drowning.

Sunny Red Pool.gif

In that brief sequence, SUNNY is instead shown floating in a red liquid and shadowy tendrils or branches can be seen around him. Afterward, the text box will reveal that OMORI's stats have been permanently boosted with an additional 50 HEART, 50 JUICE, 10 ATTACK, 10 DEFENSE, and 10 SPEED.

The screen then brings OMORI back to the area where the BRANCH CORAL once stood. However, the BRANCH CORAL appears to be devoid of its colors and inspecting it reveals that it is dead. This renders any further interactions with the BRANCH CORAL null as it can no longer be spoken to properly.

TRENCH

Trench (Screenshot).png

The TRENCH serves as the penultimate area of the DEEPER WELL, accessed from entering the last cave entrance from the top whirlpool portal.

The overall layout of the map consists of a dark cavern filled with various LITTLE ONES that moan “Help Me” in a fast-pitched tone. In addition, the screen becomes darker and the music becomes more ominous to signify that the group is slowly reaching the end of their journey.

Head up by using the ladders and you'll reach a creepily-shaped cavern resembling what appears to be a large skull of an angler fish. The only NPCs located here consist of HOLLOW, MUTE, and VOID. All three will say cryptic messages like with the other previous NPCs.

Large Whirlpool (Last Resort Portal).gif

Note that after defeating HUMPHREY, a large whirlpool near the entrance is formed. This whirlpool serves as a portal that can transport the party back to the LAST RESORT through a toilet that originally contained RAMEN. This also applies to ONE DAY LEFT as the large whirlpool will remain there.

HUMPHREY'S CAVE

Humphrey's Cave (Screenshot).png

HUMPHREY'S CAVE is the main residence of HUMPHREY, the oldest of the three great creatures of HEADSPACE. MARI's picnic basket is nearby the entrance, so save up before progressing. The character himself is found floating within his own pool near a pier.

When speaking to HUMPHREY, he will introduce himself to the party and reveal he also serves as a home for three sea witches inside of him. The smiling whale then opens his mouth, allowing the group to enter his insides, which serves as the final mandatory location in HEADSPACE.

Upon defeating HUMPHREY, he will disappear and leave behind the W and (if it was missed inside HUMPHREY earlier) T Keys required for the HANGMAN game. A large whirlpool is formed from where he once stood. Enter it and you will be taken to the final area of DEEPER WELL.

On the OMORI ROUTE, HUMPHREY returns to this place during the epilogue and is revealed to be still hungry. If you have the GIANT CHECK from MR. JAWSUM, give it to him, and this will allow you to regain access to his insides once more.

MAP OF TRUTH

Map of Truth (Screenshot).png

The MAP OF TRUTH is a long, narrow passageway filled with reddish-pink water. This location contains the truth behind HEADSPACE's existence as well as various SOMETHING variants lurking in the darkness, notably LILLI and SALLI.

Upon entering the MAP OF TRUTH, swimming through the corridor will periodically stop OMORI and the party as a disembodied voice provides exposition on his past adventures in the HEADSPACE, and how the KEYS have repeatedly pointed them to the truth, before he resets the imaginary dream world to conceal it each time it happens.

Curtain Night (Duet).png

This time, the KEYS all point to the heart of the VAST FOREST, and the projection of MARI, which OMORI has always regenerated, will guide him to it.

At the end of this area, the camera will reveal a darkened curtain with a starry background, often associated with MARI. The curtain then vanishes and is replaced with a wall painting of SOMETHING. Interact with the painting and the party will be dropped off at the NEIGHBOR'S ROOM through a small cabinet door with one single eye glancing back from there.

This area can be revisited as long as you haven't entered BLACK SPACE yet. When attempting to revisit this area on ONE DAY LEFT of the OMORI ROUTE, it will be inaccessible as HEADSPACE has been reset to repress further evidence of the truth regarding MARI's death.

CHARACTERS

DEEPER WELL is home to several creatures who seem to know who SUNNY is, offering advice, questions, and words of warning for him. Only OMORI can understand what the inhabitants of the DEEPER WELL say; when tagged, the others can only hear mumbling.

Your memories are not free. To gain a memory, another must be shrouded. And yet... All memories will eventually fade.
Textbox Hand.png
BLANK

Perhaps you've already noticed... the curse of DEEPER WELL.

With time, what is important will change. You must choose what you will keep and what you will cast away.

Not everyone has that choice.

The universe is full of questions that you will never answer. Yet... there are also ones that only you can answer.
When the truth is revealed, what will you do?

It is selfish to dream for so long when there are those who are expecting you.

Time will always move forward. Eventually, the truth will become clear... You know this well... don't you, DREAMER?

Introduction
BRANCH CORAL

A long time passed since you have ventured this far.

BRANCH CORAL

Deeper layers of his world open up as the DREAMER grows more desperate.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Even imagination is limited.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

You have questions that I can answer.
Answers that you have forgotten.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

I will lay them out for you.
If you are curious, you will choose.

MY LOST FRIEND
BRANCH CORAL

You would like to know more about your LOST FRIEND?
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

The friend you have lost is not in this world.
The day he was removed, he was reborn elsewhere.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

He is special to you. A string of fate ties you two together. He cannot leave that place alone.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

To retrieve him, you will have to remove yourself as well, but in a way that is natural for this world. For HEADSPACE.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

This journey is nearing its end.
You already know what you have to do, DREAMER.

Textbox Hand.png
BIG YELLOW CAT
BRANCH CORAL

You would like to know more about THE BIG YELLOW CAT?
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Before this world was created, there existed three great creatures... the oldest, the wisest, and the favorite.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

The oldest is alive, but not the same as he once was.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Age has removed his conscience and he has evolved into a parasite within himself. He lives here, just beyond this cavern.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

The wisest, against her reason, committed an act that opposed the DREAMER's will. It is an act that is not even known to me.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

As a result, she was stripped of her wisdom and banished to isolation... a special prison somewhere deep, deep down.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

The last and favorite, the BIG YELLOW CAT, was chosen to watch over the DREAMER's most precious room.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

He remains the DREAMER's favorite even to this day... watching diligently... waiting for something to happen.
Textbox Hand.png
WHITE SPACE
BRANCH CORAL

You would like to know more about WHITE SPACE?
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

To be in WHITE SPACE is to be nothing.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

WHITE SPACE is emptiness, a home without warmth.
A place to survive, but not to live.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Even still, your conscience cannot be erased.
It will always find a way in.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Even in WHITE SPACE, it will take the form...
and if one wills it, something will be formed to subdue it.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

A hanging black light bulb... the repression of an idea.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

...
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Yes. Perhaps it is time to admit that you are human, DREAMER.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

Is there anything else you would like to know more about?
Textbox Hand.png
Sacrifice Offer
BRANCH CORAL

You have listened well. I have granted you knowledge, but know that I can also grant you power here.
Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

There is a challenge that will aid you greatly in this world.
It is simple without thought... and if you succeed, I will be gone as well.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

I offer you this sacrifice. Will you take this opportunity?
Textbox Hand.png
  • Accepting its offer:
BRANCH CORAL

I understand. Stand very still, DREAMER.
Textbox Hand.png
  • Denying its offer:
BRANCH CORAL

I see you have chosen another path.
However, my offer remains open.

Textbox Hand.png
BRANCH CORAL

If you'd like to grow much stronger, speak to me again.
Textbox Hand.png
  • Speaking to Branch Coral again (Dialogue will repeat):
BRANCH CORAL

I see you have returned.
I will tell you again...

Textbox Hand.png
Map of Truth: The Truth about Headspace
???

You have come again to seek the truth.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Each time, your adventures may be disparate. But as your journey nears its end... it will always lead you back here.
Textbox Hand.png
???

The truth. The truth is always the same.
Textbox Hand.png
???

The path to the truth was once here, but it has been removed.
Textbox Hand.png
???

It was moved to a lighthouse in a pier.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Then, to a library banished deep underground. And after that, to an old barn on a distant planet.
Textbox Hand.png
???

And... this time... it will be in the heart of a vast forest.
Textbox Hand.png
???

No matter how many times the path is concealed, the flower boy will always find it. And your dear sister MARI... she will always guide you to it.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Even as hollow shells, they will continue to evolve. And each time, they will grow wings... and fly too close to the sun.
Textbox Hand.png
???

It is their nature. They are the only ones who know... and one has carried it with her to her grave.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Death may be no danger here, but the memories of them do not fade so easily. Many times, your friends have met with an unfortunate fate.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Although they are revived time and again, the most haunting stay in this world... even if only their bones remain.
Textbox Hand.png
???

The long lost ones sink here... to the bottom of
the DEEP WELL... and become nothing.

Textbox Hand.png
???

You have forsaken them, yet they still yearn for your care. Their souls know nothing but how to scream for help. Do you take pity on them?
Textbox Hand.png
???

Your dear sister MARI with a bad knee... You could not bear for her to die again, so she was given the safety of a picnic blanket.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Yet it is her nature to leave and to protect. And when she does, she will leave you again and be born anew... with the undying soul that you have cursed her with.
Textbox Hand.png
???

The souls assigned to your friends... They are fragile and must be protected. And so they must remain asleep.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Yet... The path to the truth is closer to your most precious room than ever before. Will you be able to bury it this time?
Textbox Hand.png
???

Perhaps it is too late for you.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Perhaps there is still hope for you.
Textbox Hand.png
???

You know of the KEYS to the other realm. They are different each time... but they will unlock the same door.
Textbox Hand.png
???

The end of this journey will lead to suffering... but if you do not face this, you cannot continue.
Textbox Hand.png
???

This form, though it has not shown its true self, is evil. You will not see that unless you fight it.
Textbox Hand.png
???

When your intentions become hazy, they will transpire into this world like a thick fog. You will know when it happens. It has already happened before.
Textbox Hand.png
???

At that time... return to where the truth was reborn... to the heart of the forest.
Textbox Hand.png
???

And like each time before it... attempt to rewrite your fate.
Textbox Hand.png
???

Will you be doomed to repeat this cycle over and over? Or will you break it?
Textbox Hand.png
???

Explore this world while you can, DREAMER. Until there is nothing left.

EXTRAS

TRIVIA

  • It is mentioned by MARI near the DEEP WELL that DEEPER WELL has existed for a long time but the clear bridge the connects to it wasn't there until during the game's events.[1]
  • With the exception of PARVENU, all of the creatures in DEEPER WELL have names relating to nothingness, destruction, or obfuscation.
Unused NPC (Deeper Well).png
  • There exists an unused NPC that was presumably meant to appear within the DEEPER WELL. It is unknown why they were scrapped but their sprites still exist within the game's files.
  • The BRANCH CORAL's dialogue all seem provides hints of the game's backstory:
    • BRANCH CORAL stating that BASIL is in another world further implies that BLACK SPACE (and by extension, WHITE SPACE) are not considered parts of HEADSPACE.
    • The three great creatures mentioned by BRANCH CORAL are all present in HEADSPACE. The oldest is HUMPHREY, a character originally from a children's book owned by SUNNY named "HUNGRY HUMPHREY". The wisest is ABBI, OMORI's former imaginary friend. The "prison" she is trapped in is THE ABYSS; it is not known why ABBI was stripped of her wisdom and banished. The favorite, the BIG YELLOW CAT, is seen in the NEIGHBOR'S ROOM. The BIG YELLOW CAT appears to take influence from a piece of playground equipment in FARAWAY PARK or a calendar in the TREEHOUSE, perhaps both.
    • BRANCH CORAL's statement about WHITE SPACE heavily implies that the black light bulb represents the repression of SUNNY's traumatic memories. This is further implied by the events following the destruction of the light bulb.
  • In the 2019 build of the game, DEEPER WELL originally did not exist as crossing from the END OF THE HIGHWAY's bridge simply transitions the party straight to the TRENCH subarea.
  • DEEPER WELL serves as one of the five locations where the MYSTERY POTION's effects can work properly. The other four areas consist of the DEEP WELL, LAST RESORT, HUMPHREY, and THE ABYSS.
  • The line "Perhaps ______ for you", spoken by the disembodied voice within the MAP OF TRUTH, differs depending on which route the player is on.
    • If the player is on the SUNNY ROUTE: "Perhaps it is too late for you."
    • If the player is on the OMORI ROUTE: "Perhaps there is still hope for you."
  • In the official track #101 Numbers, a voice can be heard of a girl reciting the numbers 1 through 10 in German, a sample from a famous German shortwave numbers station known as "Achtung". This BGM is used for the room with the BRANCH CORAL and the REEF AREA from BLACK SPACE.
  • Majority of the dialogue spoken by the DEEPER WELL residents all seem to correlate with game's themes:
    • VOID's quote ultimately alludes to SUNNY's decision whether he should save BASIL from his ongoing guilt or simply leave him to rot in his own wallowing despair. These words also foreshadows one of the final bosses of the SUNNY ROUTE.
    • Like with ??? from the RAFT AREA, MUTE's quotes alludes to the choices SUNNY makes throughout the game, whether if he chooses to wake up and face reality or stay asleep in his imaginary world of escapism.
    • AUGHT's dialogue largely relates to SUNNY's decision to flee from his problems and instead resign to his endless cycle of escapism through OMORI and HEADSPACE. These actions led to SUNNY's life going downhill, and these words can all depend on the choices he makes throughout the game.
    • CIPHER's quote omniously references the words engraved on MARI's gravestone in the FARAWAY CEMETERY, the place where she was buried at: "OUR DEAREST MARI; THE SUN SHINED BRIGHTER WHEN SHE WAS HERE."
    • HOLLOW's words likely refers to the time SUNNY nearly drowned at FARAWAY PARK, which led to MARI saving him from a near-death experience. These words also reflect on the life choices he would eventually make after that incident.
  • The window that appears within the MAP OF TRUTH also briefly appears as a hallucination in SUNNY'S HOUSE on TWO DAYS LEFT when SUNNY himself briefly sees a vision of MARI's spirit playing the piano.
