Ok two hints and we'll see if you can take it from there:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I guessed correctly that the first word of 3 letters is "The". The second from last word, also 3 letters but the last 2 are the same, is "all". Had I been wrong with my guesses I would have not been able to do it but I was lucky...

Good luck!

Thanks, I finally solved it... Mandle you need to fix this, it's a pain to select letters and no way to backtrack if you just passed it. >:(

Okay I cracked the code but what should I do now?
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Asking Siri about Walrus doesn't seem to give me useful information... Anything else from the code message turns up nothing on siri afaik...

Had no problems until I wanted to leave, and the game wouldn't let me! I had
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
deciphered the code, touched the bracelet and have phone, paper, goggles and bracelet. There is a gap in the inventory items, but searching the apartment, workstations and computers yields nothing. I've spoken to siri about the walrus, Lennon, Chapman and Dakota apartments.
What have I missed?

By the way,
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
although John wrote the song "I am the walrus" on "Magical Mystery Tour", on the white album in his song "Glass Onion" he wrote:
"I told you about the walrus and me, man
You know that we're as close as can be man!
Well here's another clue for you all;
The walrus was Paul."

Ah 60s flashback! Maybe I was there after all...

Hint
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Have you tried: use keypad ?

Hint 2 (if the above doesn't help)
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
What happens if you fall?

Hint 3 (the solution, if you have given up)
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
While falling check the height you are from the floor (you can just type l to make time pass)... once you are at a safe distance from the floor (before "splat"), use the keypad again.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks to Cassie for fielding that question!

Cassie is a more experienced time traveller who has already been to New York in 1981 and wandered the streets for some time. She also has visited the beautiful Dakota Apartments where John Lennon lived and also a certain seedy video arcade best left unmentioned...

Thanks, looking forward to the finished game! BTW, any chance of including a readme file with commands that the game will recognize? In the initial stage, while waiting for the appointed time it recognized anything (pick nose, scratch bum etc). I tried "look at" with no success, "look" worked, and so does "l". Just a thought..

The finished game should recognize mostly any words needed or variations. I feel a readme file might give too many specific hints about actions available later in the game. Maybe I could make a general file and a spoilerish file so a player will not see anything they don't want to.

Cheers for the feedback!
