We have discovered the purpose of the mysterious "dummy finger" in the Resident Evil 7 demo.

Unearthed by Eurogamer after the recent Resident Evil 7 demo update, there's a multitude of cryptic steps one must initiate before the dummy finger arrives at its destiny. For the full play-by-play of this obscure mystery, head on over to our Resident Evil 7 demo endings and secrets guide. Or watch our video walkthrough below:

It's a complex series of steps, to say the least, and it ends with the player being able to access a bloody door in the attic. Inside is a message saying "You're the best ever!" with an item called a "dirty coin" stuck to it.

Pick up the coin and use the attic window to escape. As it turns out, the dirty coin can be transferred to the main game for a hidden surprise. What will it be? Guess we'll have to find out when Resident Evil 7 launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 24th January.
