The PAIN AREA is a world filled with remnants of endless pain. The background featured consists of looping, static images of certain characters that are hard to distinguish. The creatures that inhabit this area are mostly distorted and broken in appearance.
One of them resembles a giant SOMETHING with a realistic face. Some of the notable objects consists of a crudely-drawn OMORI that is melting, a dead-looking whale, an unknown creature with large hollow eyes, poorly drawn window, and a human body cut into multiple parts. Talking with any of the various SOMETHING plants or large creatures will cause them to cry out in pain. Interacting with any of the CROW MEN will cause them to cough out black smoke and make a deep trumpeting noise.
Originally, if OMORI is positioned between the black hands, near the window, he would've been warped to BLACK FOREST 2. This has been cut because the developers didn't have enough time to test it extensively, although it exists in the 2019 build of the game.
OMORI is taken to a corrupted area filled with various forms of life, all appearing to be distorted variations of a few characters such as SOMETHING or OMORI himself. Immediately upon entering the world, you have an encounter with STRANGER, taking on the form of BASIL as usual.
Upon noticing OMORI's arrival, STRANGER will question OMORI about HEADSPACE's purpose, whether it was created to protect BLACK SPACE or hide it away. Regardless, STRANGER tells OMORI that BLACK SPACE's presence is slowly becoming more powerful than before, disappearing afterwards. From there, OMORI can interact with any of the creatures residing in the location while navigating his way by following the dark-colored footprints.
The key can be found by following the blue path, next to a giant window. After collecting the key, several RED HANDS will spawn and interacting with them will take OMORI back to the center hub of BLACK SPACE.
Requires having UNIVERSAL REMOTE equipped on OMORI. In JUNKYARD, where the DOWNLOAD WINDOW boss was previously fought. One of the TV's on the right side of the "0" will be glitching out and flashing orange. Interact with it.

- The SOMETHING that appears in this area bears an uncanny resemblance to MARI, specifically the face reusing the same design from mannequin variant of HELLMARI.
- The background used for this area contains blurry shots of OMORI and friends from the 2014 trailer. There is also a closeup of SUNNY and MARI shown in the background.
