Mind Games is the 8th story mission in inFamous.
Starting the MissionEditCole receives a call from Moya who explains that the Reapers have been contaminating the local water supply and asks him to investigate Smith Fountain. Cole head's over to the fountain where he find's Trish trying to help the injured. She's not happy to see Cole, but the fountain is running with Black Tar and she reluctantly asks him to stop the flow. As Cole shuts off the valve he is sprayed by the tar, seriously impairing his powers and vision. Trish tells him to follow her to an ambulance where she has a solvent to get the tar off. On the way over Cole begins hallucinating, seeing giant Reaper line the street before him, and hearing the voice of a Mysterious Woman. Once Cole reaches Trish, he blacks out, though quickly comes around as Trish sprays his face, he thanks her, but she rebuffs him, telling him that it's the only time she will help him.
The Second and Third ValvesEdit
- " You won’t be able to shut me out forever. Eventually, a crack will appear and that crack will spread, and grow larger, and then the wall comes down. "
- — The Mysterious Woman taunts Cole.
Speaking to Moya, Cole learns that there are two more valves nearby. Heading to Memorial Park he is attacked by a group of reapers (including two conduits). Once this threat was dealt with Cole turns the second valve, once again receiving a face full of tar. As he makes his way to the third valve, Cole once again hears the Mysterious Woman’s voice as he tries to fight the effects of the tar. Once he reaches the third valve Cole admits to himself that, “If I turn that valve, I’ll take another blast of crud to the face” and is faced with a Karmic choice: be evil and force a nearby citizen to open the valve, or be good and open it himself.
Contacting Moya again, Cole learns that the three valves he has shut off were all feed from a pipe found in the tunnel that runs under Memorial Park. The Reaper’s have blocked the tunnels entrance but Cole easily makes him way past these obstacles. Unfortunately his hallucinations return as he makes his way along the tunnel, causing him to hear the mysterious woman again and to see fake Reapers along side real gangs of his adversaries. At the end of the tunnel Cole calls Moya, telling her about the truck attached to the water pipe, Moya advises Cole to destroy the truck, which he does before leaving the tunnel.
