the museum. I need to get the Draconium. I have already photographed the alarm code, but I don't know what to do next.
I think I need to lure the mouse to distract the guard, but I don't know how. I tried using the cheese with the mouse hole, but the protagonist says he doesn't want to get too close to it.

Thanks for your feedback lorenzo!

If you already have photographed the alarm code what you will have to do is right click on the camera into the inventory to get the code and then you should disable the alarm by the panel which is near the guard. But this is not done yet you will have to do something else! :D

I got the code, but I still can't get rid of the guard nor deactivate the alarm. There's probably an obvious thing I'm missing, but I don't know what.  :~(
In the inventory, I've got the brochure, water bottle, cheese, rials, and a whole lot of other stuff.


By the way, I've found a small graphics glitch in the museum room.

To deactivate the alarm you should wait the guard to turn his head to the right side, in that moment you should be able to disable the alarm box, but that's not over.

Do you actually know how to take a screenshot in your computer? Just push the button "Stamp Rsist" then open an image editor like paint and paste it over there. Save the image and go to imgur.com then upload the image into the website and it will generate a link.

good to read that there is nothing wrong
So I now need some help:

My guess was that I have to press the tiles according to the
words in the book

But the tiles for "create and "cattle" are missing

Your help would be highly appreciated

Hi! So the trick here is that you can create words by combining buttons together. So if you look at "create" here, it looks like two buttons pressed in order. First, press the Middle/Rightmost button (this symbol looks like the start of "Create" right?), then, press the button next to it, to the left (this symbol looks like the second part of "create", right?). Does that make sense? Now you can do the same for "cattle" :)

Thanks for playing!!

Take your time with it! It all makes sense if you break it down piece by piece. My best advice would be:

Spoiler: ShowHide

Look at the keypad. Look at every button on the keypad. Some of the buttons look similar to others. So when you are looking at the document, you might be clicking a set of buttons that LOOK like they are the best fit, but in reality there is ANOTHER combination that matches the keycode better.

Gahhh...I'm stuck on the Island puzzle.  I drew out a "map" on paper of each word (or partial word) that's represented by the symbols.  I don't know if I've screwed up royally or what, but I keep trying to no avail.  Please tell me if I'm missing something or mis-translated!

goblet(2)          cut           demon(1,2)           blood          transform(1)

hand          goblet(3)        dagger         demon(4)       water

Does this remotely look correct (sorry if my "drawing" seems weird or confusing!  Hope you are able to see what I'm trying to show you)?  I've clicked the poem about a million times and it doesn't work.  I'm so frustrated!!

Hi SarahLiz, first off, thanks for playing!

Ok let's take a look. I'm going to link a screenshot, let me know if this is where you are:
https://imgur.com/1v1SGgC

If it is, then:
On the bottom right, you have the script that tells you which buttons to click (like the ruins puzzle). The first two significant words in that are "Demon" and "Dwell". If you look on the left, you'll see that "demon" is a pretty long symbol. On the top right (dark green), you'll see that my mouse cursor is hanging over a button that looks like the first part of the word "demon". So, what you would do, is click this button, then click it again (because in Demon it is symbolized twice), then immediately down 1 row and to the right you see the next symbol, this one that looks like the next part of "demon". Click that. Then, you will see immediately under THAT button and to the right, is what looks like the symbol that finishes the "demon" word on the left script. Sorry if that's confusing, let me know if it makes sense!

As for your map, I'm not really sure how to read that. I see Goblet 2x up top left... but you don't have to do any mapping out like that, since you will have 1. the parchment 2. the poem, 3. the buttons, all in front of you on the page

If you aren't there yet, let me know and I will help further.

Hey Shadow, Vincent's post above mine should get you started in the correct order. It's definitely not an easy puzzle. My best advice would be to double check all of your symbols, you are most likely clicking some that you think are the best fit, when really there is another symbol that matches much better. I'm not near my computer but at some point today/tomorrow I will be and I can spell out the whole button sequence for you if you'd like.

I agree. I checked Vincent's start and I definitely got that far correctly. I'm probably missing something or making some incorrect assumption. I usually like solving puzzles on my own but I have done this one 11 times so far and nothing happened so I'll wait for the full solution to see where I went wrong.

Thank you for the PM!  I understood everything you were saying previously and HOW the puzzle needed to be solved, but like Shadow I knew something somehow got messed up in translation, and no clue where it could be.  I think I spent well over 2 hours trying to figure out where I went wrong.  This was a really tough puzzle for me.


Spoiler: ShowHide


I obviously didn't read the brochure as carefully as I thought.  In my translation notes I had written down  "drink = water + mouth" instead of "MOUTH + WATER".  A small oversight that screwed up the whole dang thing!




Anyway, I finally got through it just now and paused to write a quick note on the boards.  Now back to the game!   ;-D

I actually don't know where I went wrong the first 11 times! I made the mistake you described the first time but then double checked and corrected it for the next 10 times. Who knows... :)

Oh...

I have exhausted the conversational options with the pharmacist, but when I try to interact with the delivery guy I just get called a pervert.
Does it require pixel perfect clicking, or better timing, or both?

Thanks!

Ahah it require only a better timing... when he is crouching.

hint 1:
Spoiler: ShowHide

Speak to the Librarian. Also, speak to the old man in the library. He is looking for something...


hint 2:
Spoiler: ShowHide

In Carl's Office, there's a bookshelf. In that bookshelf, is a phone book. Give the phonebook to the old man in the library and he will let you borrow the card.

I'm glad it worked eventually. As Vincent already mentioned we tested the game and no one was able to replicate this error.

Thanks a lot for playing our game!

Great game, one of the rare games I was able to finish without help, though I did get stuck for a while on a few things, before I just started trying random things and finally found the solution. : )

Question -- are there multiple endings?
Spoiler: ShowHide
I got the ending where I end up becoming a reptilian and serving them ...

Is there any other possible ending that might depend on what I do?

Thank you, and thank you for the game. : )

Stuck again:

Spoiler: ShowHide
I have the items found in the hut but cannot see anything in the cellar. It looks like I need to make a candle, but how do I soften/melt the wax? ??? I don't see anything hot in the game that I could use - there was a radiator in the the reception, but that location is no longer accessible. The game won't let me use the obvious solution of the stove in the kitchen, and Judy and Patricia are no help either. (roll)

Spoiler: ShowHide

You can make fire in two ways. First of all you should take the wooden and the stick which are located to the shelf at the hut.

1) Combine wooden with the stick while you are inside the hut to make fire

2) First use the wooden at the basket which is located just above the trap door and then use the wooden stick on it to make fire

Now that you have the blood and skin samples you have to find a way to examine them. Have you tried to look at the bulletin board that is in the university?

The space machine door puzzle. I already triggered the hint which somehow resembled what I was thinking but what about the double symbols where the dot and the bracket are in the same field?
In what order do they have to be pressed? I think I tried both ways, but nothing happens.
