All Choices and Endings in Penny Black

Are you looking to explore the different endings of Penny Black or perhaps interested in discovering the “secret” choice inputs? This guide is a comprehensive resource based on my knowledge, complete with spoiler warnings and hints.

Note that some choices, including the “secret” ones, may have multiple ways to input them. For instance, instead of typing “PHONE,” you could also use “CALL” or “TEXT.” However, I will not list every single iteration for such choices.

Some of the “secret” choices may be hinted at or described in some manner earlier in the story, so be attentive. In other cases, you may have to think of a logical solution that the game accepts. At times, the choice may be alluded to and hinted at like a riddle, but the answer is never explicitly provided in the story.

The following format will be used for the choice/score guide: INPUT → additional INPUTS (if any) | Score Awarded.
