Title: GNRBLEX
Post by: Stupot on 05 Aug 2016, 00:13
Lovely looking game, but I'm a bit stuck.
Spoiler: ShowHide
I've managed to remove the broken rail in the 2nd room but I can't find anything to replace it with...

What am I missing?

First hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Where would a maintenance crew keep spare parts?


Second hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
In the tool cabinet are more than just tools


Third hint just in case:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Notice that there are differently coloured boxes in the cabinet that have different contents

Hint dead on:

Crowbar + Crate = ?'

And if that doesn't do it, then
Spoiler: ShowHide

You might have to do some reading before busting open crates... ;) (I'm not sure if there's a condition there).

Thanks,

I had to restore to a time before I checked the messages on the console, and opening the crate wouldn't work


Edit:
Spoiler: ShowHide
I'm close to the end I guess, and I have the maggots and the guy in place. How do I actually get them to do their thing? The 2nd maggot is still visible on floor #0 but aligned, the screen on level #3 says it's done (all checked but the music), and I still have the music button but it does nothing, no matter which room I'm in. Feels like a bug, but I'm probably just missing something.

Ok.  Soooo embarrassing but I'm not able to do much of anything in the very, very beginning.  I'm stuck.  Can't leave the room, can't pick up anything.  What am I doing wrong??  This game looks awesome & I'd really love to play it!  :-[


Sorry if it's something obvious that I'm not getting.  Any help would be much appreciated!

..I'm not able to do much of anything in the very, very beginning.  I'm stuck.  Can't leave the room, can't pick up anything.

Don't worry, the first room is a sort of tutorial that aims to make sure the player is familiar with some classic adventure gaming tropes.
I'm hoping to improve the tutorial in the upgraded version of the game which I am currently working on, to make it a bit more obvious, since quite a few players had problems with the first room.

As for how to get started:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Remember that you can use inventory items on objects in the game world.
[hide]Try using the communicator on items. This will invoke Mary, your colleague, to comment on the objects in the game world.

Hope this helps you to get started! :)

Hello amazing work you´ve done here, I´m almost done with the adventure but I´m completely stuck in here:

Spoiler: ShowHide
I can´t find the correct password on floor 3 to activate the console.

Have you read all the notes on the wall? ... Or/And the console at the entry level?
Title: Re: GNRBLEX

Yes I checked the entries but can´t find the correct password, by the way I can´t see the second spoiler tag!

Post by: Cassiebsg on 26 Oct 2016, 14:35
sorry about the second spoiler tag, was suppose to be the close tag. Have corrected it now.

Okay, think I remember now
Spoiler: ShowHide

Okay, in one of those yellow post-its, there's a reference to the "first" (?) entry of ... (can't remember name). Write that name down.

Extra help:
[hide]
Go down to the console and find his first entry... write down the entry numbers...

And then:
[hide]
go up, try the pin code. ;)

Hope this helps.

Cassiebsg has the right of it. I would like to add the following point just in case you are still having issues after reading the previously posted tips:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Note that you only need the three-digit DATE code as part of the password, not the year.

Gah! I forgot about this old thread.

Hint
Spoiler: ShowHide

You need to use an item to REPEL the GRUE.


Outright spoiler
Spoiler: ShowHide

You can find the MANIPULATOR on the bottom floor. You need to double-click on it to examine it closer, then ensure it is set to the correct mode, so you don't accidentally ATTRACT the GRUE with disastrous consequences.

I used the manipulator once, and now I have to set the chip to fix it. I already tried 6, 7 and 3. Is there a hint regarding the correct number?

You have to put your reading glasses on for some green text.


Outright spoiler:

Check the paper on the table on which you found the manipulator, down in the containment room. The number changes each time you play, because I'm that kind of evil when it comes to developing games.
