In this small escape game, you play as a PhD student and research scientist in an exciting new field. While working late after midnight in the clean room, you notice you're alone, which should be impossible. It's time to go home, but leaving will prove to be more difficult than usual.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

*** You have won ***
Robert Halas, also known as Miika Stenkulla, was a maintenance man. You find his body in the entrance area. It's never explained why he has two names.
Two masked men broke into the facility, killed Robert, and stole everything from the store room.
You inform the police and the university personnel about everything you witnessed as soon as you can.
Items are listed in the order acquired (or found) in this walkthrough.
a face mask, some gloves, and a gown. You're wearing them.
You're unwilling to remove any of these while in the clean room, but you remove them automatically when you wear your street clothes.
You are unwilling to wear the mask, gloves, or gown once you're got them off.
a mobile fume extractor. It's in the clean room. Find it by examining the equipment, then the extractors.
Inside the airlock, when you first attempt to open door B, there's a bang and the something starts smoking. Turn on the extractor to remove the fumes. The extractor vanishes from the game at the same time.
your NFC token. It's in your cabinet in the clean room, but you won't see your cabinet until you examine the cabinets first.
While you carry your token, you can open airlock door A in the clean room and open your locker in the gowning room.
a PhD thesis draft. It's also in your cabinet in the clean room.
In the entrance area, jam the draft under the shutter. This lifts the shutter just high enough that the security system thinks the shutter is open and removes the shutter item from its maintenance task list.
your street clothes. They're in your locker in the gowning room.
In the main hall, stand on the cart (from the clean room) and unscrew the camera with the screwdriver.
a disinfectant spray. Find it by searching the workbench in the maintenance room.
After watching the camera footage in the high-security store room and learning there must be a secret way out from the maintenance room, spray the spray in the maintenance room to find the trapdoor under the desk.
Robert Halas' NPC token. Find it by searching the desk in the maintenance room.
While you carry Robert's token, you can open Robert's locker in the gowning room. (To find Robert's locker, you must first examine the body in the entrance area, then read the lockers in the gowning room.)
a wallet. It's in Robert Halas' locker in the gowning room.
To find his locker, first examine the body in the entrance area to learn his name, then read the lockers in the gowning room. Open the locker with his NFC token.
Search the wallet to learn that Robert Halas has another name, Miika Stenkulla, and he was born in 1974.
a broken CCTV camera. It's in the main hall.
To get the camera, push the cart from the clean room until it's in the main hall. Stand on the cart, then unscrew the camera with the screwdriver.
You don't do anything with the camera once you have it, but now the security system removes the broken camera item from its maintenance task list.
