Thanks everybody for playing the game

Thank you Mahli for your comments and bugs report, although I'd have liked to read a better "feedback" (I mean positive comments too...) :(

Tabata: A thousand thanks for voting the game, for helping the players and for trying to convince them to vote...
If I'll make a new game you'll be the first one to know it

Cheers

I'll take you up on that - when does it start?   ;)

Gorgeous game, I love the aesthetic (I'm a big hopper fan!) and references. I'm finding the pixel-hunt nature of the puzzles is a bit irritating though.

Ok having read the thread I think I can't progress any further. I've brought the bum to the motel, and I know I'm now looking to either ruin the chicken or paint the sign. I can't get the pole straps because the man hasn't left, and it seems like that should have happened way earlier in the game (Previously the man was only half-size! so I think this is a bug.)

Please please make a walkthrough for the game though!

... have you also read this (and done it)?

Spoiler: ShowHide
 Did you get your second job from Mrs. Irving and fullfill it? (getting the check from Mr. Jean)

...

EDIT: Sorry, forgot this one:
Spoiler: ShowHide
 It's about to find the lost ring of your neighbor and getting a reward.



EDIT:

Yes, that should to the trick!

I had to go to chapter two until I found the man standing at the pole.
After reading
Spoiler: ShowHide
the post-it (and talking about it to Mrs. Irving) I went back to the pole
and the man was gone ...  :D

So you should be able to go on with the game, after doing this.

Yes, I completed the second job, I'm on the third chapter, in which I need to persuade the other two musicians to join my band. I've done all the stuff with mathilda and unless I can 'ruin' the chicken without getting the pole straps I don't see how I can progress.

Re: A RainDog Story

Yeah, I read the post-it to discover the first job. I read it again after seeing someone else with a similar problem and it says something like 'the text has been cleared'. Do you think this is a bug?

Edit: O also, to the person who liked the music in the music shop. I think it's from the 'Elevator to the Gallows' soundtrack by Miles Davis. I might be mistaken though.

... so you didn't read the post-it
Spoiler: ShowHide
 behind Mrs. Irving.

- You should do ;)

If you are still stuck after that - it whould be a job for Romeo, but first try this.

Re: A RainDog Story

A-ha! Thanks a ton! That did the trick. I hadn't noticed that post-it before, and I guess I confused it in previous messages with the post it from the booth.

So glad that I can carry on, cheers!


Edit: Christ this game is hard. I'm now stuck trying to get rid of the security guard.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 I've got the key to the restaurant, got the handcart from the kid, got the model number of the plane, and modified the member's pass.


Any hints?

I started the game an hour ago and I'm stuck.  I have the wine bottle, score, guitar, wallet, beam, cleaning cloth, nails, town map, gauze.  I got the town map in the subway station but the policeman keeps kicking me out.  What do I do now?

Welcome AndyfromVA,

I recommend you first to read this thread, because about most of the problems you can already find hints.

This way you won't have to wait (getting crazy) until someone is online for answering.  ;D
 
...in this game you have to look very thoroughly everywhere in every scene. It's very tricky sometimes (at least for me). For starting I would recommend you to discover all the accessible parts to get a clue, what to do next. Maybe you should try to find
Spoiler: ShowHide
 the alley between hospital and music inn
...
Have fun!

But to get you more on the road, you should try finding a job/money. So don't forget to search/ask everywhere for this possibilities also
Spoiler: ShowHide
 Sometimes you find very interesting posts in phone booths   ;)

Thanks, I read the thread and it didn't help me.  I recall that hint about the alley but I searched for it but couldn't find it.  Oh well, time to look again.

Thanks.  I'm at the point now where I've shaved, but I can't wash my clothes because I have no change.  I'm stuck.

Did you get a job, like I told about?

If you earn some money, you can for example
Spoiler: ShowHide
 buy a ticket, repair your guitar ....
but first there have to be solved some other probs during your job ;D

Okay, I bought the ticket, repaired the guitar, washed my clothes.  The store owner won't talk to me about a new job.  I can't do anything in Music Inn except sit at the table and drink water.

I'm stuck again - what do I do?

Well, she will give you a second job, but not now - call back later there.

I don't know, what you have in your inventory and I can guess only, that you are still in chapter one (would be helpfull, not to send you in the wrong direction), but let's try something else:

It seems, that you didn't talk
Spoiler: ShowHide


And there should be another possibility to get some money (but maybe you did this already?).
Spoiler: ShowHide
Did you see (and read) the post it behind Mrs. Irving? Talk about it to her and and try to solve this.


Hope one of this hints will help a bit.

Sorry, neither hint helps me.

The waitress tells me she can't give me permission to play

And also
Spoiler: ShowHide
I didn't see any post it behind Mrs. Irving.  There's nothing behind her and she's not talking to me any more.

Maybe I did something earlier that screwed up the game?

How about a little tip for her to remember ?


The other hint was too early for you now, so next time do not only tell about your prob. Please also list your inventory-items, or you (and me) will only become more confused.  ::)

Good luck for now.

Ok how do i get in the window with the stripper. I try to reach He says I can't reach it! Then i try to use things on it and He says i daon't have to do anything more with window cause i can reach it! What's up can someone help me Tried to walk and everything Nothing.
keekee71, are you referring to the window above the bouncer?  I'm stuck there too!  I read a hint about using the box on the upper level...but there's no hotspot higher than the shop roof I can find. When I try using the box on either the house roof or the shop roof, there's no reply.  Used box on Tom and he said he didn't know how to use it.  I used the wood beam to span the 2 roofs, but when I walk about halfway across the shop roof the bouncer stops Tom, saying he'll call the police.  Same when I try to just walk to the window hotspot. 
 Bleeding Romeo,
Great game, by the way! One other problem-the game crashes when I try to grab the handicap sticker, both before and after using steam on it.  I get an error message about room3.asc line 989-Face character:characters in different rooms. I downloaded & extracted the game again (reusing the old saves which were in a different folder) and same problem.  Please help, I really want to finish playing.
