Title: Bittersweet
Post by: Wiggy on 17 Jan 2019, 06:33
Help please I'm stuck. I'm loving this game but:

Spoiler: ShowHide
What tool do I need to smash the weakened wall at Prison Rock? I suspect I need to make a bomb downstairs, but Teagan won't pick up anything that is there.
The man with two mugs' puzzle I assume needs all 3 symbols lit, but turning on any symbol turns off others. Is this puzzle solvable?


Thanks in advance!

I had the same questions. Answers:

Actually, I couldn't even find the basement opening! I'm impressed you saw that area because to me it blended right in with the rest of the floor, even after KNOWING that the solution is in that room and a lot of pixel hunting. ANYWAY, pick up the lock pick from that room. It will also help you in the area with the 3 symbols, which is NOT solvable


This is not a complete solution but it should get you going. Post if you need more help...

Thank-you Shadow1000! Actually my problem was not searching the cells thouroughly enough. Finished it now, will write a comment as soon as my mind settles down! :-D

You're welcome. I liked the game too. I usually comment on games that I enjoy but I don't feel I understood the philosophy behind this one well enough to comment. But I'll see what you say.

I'm only at my first stop on the train, but not sure how to progress...
Spoiler: ShowHide
in the room with the razor blades and the bucket, I think I'm meant to kill the person (but apparently not with the rubber gloves)

I guess the puzzles in each location are self-contained and I wouldn't have to take the train somewhere else to get an item?

That's a bad guess morganw. There are things located elsewhere that you will need in nearly all of the puzzles. Garbage man is a big help here.

You don't kill the dead woman, you bandage her wounds with the bandage from the medi-kit,

Hope that helps!

Oh dear. I've completely misunderstood what is going on then; the solution seems to be the opposite of what I did to progress in the other rooms.

It's a slight mis-apprehension. You haven't been killing the dead woman, you've been saving her from her suicide attempts.

Cutting her down when she was hanging, pulling the wires out of her bath, and now bandaging her cut wrists.

Keep at it - you're doing well.

You need the

bandages from the medi-kit, which is located in the first station at the top of the stairs where the locked door is.
