General Tips

  • This is a straightforward point-and-click adventure game in which you need to scan scenes with your cursor to find interactive objects and new locations
  • Interactive places can consist of items that can be picked up and put in your inventory, people you can talk to and objects that you can interact with. Pay close attention to the information you get when you click on an interactive object, even if it doesn’t seem useful at the time as you may get subtle clues on where to find later items
  • Move your cursor to the top of the screen to save or exit your game, and to change window and volume settings
  • Your inventory bar will pop up when you move your cursor to the bottom of your screen
  • To use inventory items in a scene you need to drag and drop them to the desired location. Simply clicking on an inventory item will tell you what it is and occasionally give you other useful information
  • Inventory items can be combined to create new items by dragging and dropping them onto each other in the inventory
  • For the best game experience, always go through all available dialog options. Dialog options that trigger new events will disappear from the list once you’ve gone through them. Purely informative dialog options will remain available in case you want to go back and read them again. There are no “deal breaker” options. If a dialog option ends the conversation, you can simply start the conversation again
  • Apart from in a few compulsory scenes, you can click through most dialog
  • The order of actions described in this walkthrough isn’t necessarily the quickest or most efficient, but I have organized the actions by task so you can find all actions relating to a specific task in one place
