The Redactor is a machine used at the beginning of the game by the player's character. It appears to be used to censor and filter out news that would have a possibly upsetting effect to the citizens of Wellington Wells. This is important for a society hooked on Joy, a euphoric drug created to bury the memories of the not-so-pleasant past. There are several rooms containing this device in the underground office. Players can access a specific few of them by using a Power Cell. Players can then read the Newspaper Articles and then censor or approve them.
