Documents

From dieyoung

Documents are a significant element of Die Young. Most of the lore of the game is told through documents. The most important documents are found near key locations and they are hard to miss. Some others are found in optional locations, and they usually add interesting backstories to the main plot. Documents can also contain important hints to advance in the story, like information about items' or characters' whereabouts, or maps. Sometimes reading a document is necessary to complete a task.

With few exceptions, they usually appear as a sheet of paper that can be collected just like ordinary items. Documents can be opened by pressing the TAB-key (or View button on a controller) immediately after collection, or through the DOCS tab in the in-game Menu. Unread documents are marked with a yellow exclamation mark, the last collected document on top. Read documents are grayed out and listed in a predetermined order, instead. Some documents have multiple pages which can be turned by clicking on the arrows at the bottom of the screen or by pressing left or right with directional buttons.

There is a total of 91 documents in Die Young. In the following list, they are grouped by topic or author (check the Places pages for documents' locations).
