  • When you create a profile, you’ll be asked if you want to play in Casual (the Hint and Skip buttons charge in 120 seconds and active areas are highlighted) or Expert (the Hint and Skip buttons charge in 135 seconds and active areas are not highlighted) mode.
  • Click on Options to adjust the Music and Sound volumes. Note that adjusting the Music volume also adjusts the voiceover sound levels. If you set this fairly low, you won’t hear the voiceovers clearly. You can also click Mute to disable all sound and switch between Full Screen and Windowed modes. Windowed mode was tested on resolutions of 800×600, 1024×768 and 1152×865, and works for all of them. Click on Credits to view this information.
  • Secrets is locked until you complete the game
  • You’ll be given the opportunity to use a Tutorial when you first start a game.

  • Once you’ve started a game, you’ll see the Journal, Tasks and Maps and Menu buttons at the lower left side of the screen.
  • The Journal contains the Fairlie Family Tree, Character information and Story Elements. It will begin empty and be added to as you progress in the game.

  • During dialog scenes, click on each of the discussion points and then click anywhere to progress through the conversations. Click on Good Bye only AFTER you’ve exhausted the other choices. The outcome isn’t affected by which order you choose to ask the available questions, just don’t choose Good Bye or you’ll have to click on the character again and complete the other choices, first.
  • The mis-click penalty is random. Sometimes it only happens if you click quickly, several times, other times it will be triggered no matter how long you pause between clicks. In all cases, the cursor will be disabled for approximately 4 seconds.

Gameplay and Guide Tips

  • This guide assumes you’ve read the General Information, Gameplay and Guide Tips, used the Help, used the Tutorial and/or otherwise familiarized yourself with navigation and gameplay mechanics.

In landscape scenes, active locations will be highlighted in White, Inventory items in Blue and Journal items in Green. Note that the game will highlight all object search areas in Purple; they won’t be otherwise highlighted in the images in this guide.
  • Collecting items related to entries in the Journal aren’t always necessary in order to progress in the game. If you miss an item, and can no longer return to collect it, you will still be able to progress. When you collect a Journal entry item, the Journal will glow. Click on it to read more.
  • The game is somewhat non-linear and you may perform some tasks in any order you choose, however some areas won’t be available until you complete tasks or collect inventory items.
  • If you’re confused about your location, be sure and look at the in-game map (click on Tasks and Maps, at the lower left) for help in navigating to where you want to go. Note that the maps are not interactive and you’ll have to navigate by moving your cursor around the scene, locating the entrances and exits and clicking to go in that direction. Navigation directions won’t be given in this guide.
  • Hovering your cursor over Inventory items will show you a popup tag with a description. Names of all the entrances and exits to a scene will also have descriptive tags.
  • Some of the “hotspots” for active areas, or items in object searches, may not be very precise. Move your cursor a little and you’ll be able to click on the area or item.

Anyway, after you’ve caught all the little beasties (3), repeat with the Chest to reel it into shore (4) and click on it.

 Woman in White

Unlock the Chest. Rotate the Disk, using the Left and Right Arrows below it, until it has the same configuration as one of the Hinges and then click on the center of the Disk.

Now comes the unpleasant task of trying to find your way through the Asylum’s Labyrinth of Doors (artist M. C. Escher, or the architects of Warehouse 13, must have created this mess). There appears to be no particular logic for figuring out which doors lead to the next, correct step, and which lead you nowhere except back to your previous location.

After you choose a door, you’ll only be told that you’ve chosen the “right door” or the “wrong door.” If you’ve chosen the “wrong door,” you’ll go back to the last “right door” you chose and get to pick again. If you chose the “right door,” click on another to continue. Note that once you’ve gone through a door, it remains open and should tell you not to go through it again.

Which Door? Hmmm…how about the one on the Right?

 Woman in White

Click on the Right Door (1), speak to a female patient, exhaust all discussion points and then click back.
