"I'm Stuck" Thread

Recommended Posts

Stuck on a Case? Confused as to where to go next? Think you're missing a piece of evidence and don't know where to find it? Let us know and we'll help guide you in the right direction!

 

Note: If you're stuck due to a bug, please report it in our bug reporting thread. As well, 90% of the time, we'll only give you hints as to what you should be doing. We believe that exploration is still important to the game. A guide as to where to go throughout the entirety is also in the works so stay tuned for that!

Spoiler

The puzzle can only result in being one of two names, hence the capital letters. You just have to decide which one

Like Michael said, you can brute force your way through the puzzle by ignoring the hints about which books are the liars. Just look at the letters the bookshelves offer, especially the two capital ones, and ask yourself what two significant characters have names starting with those capital letters. From there, you can look at the remaining lowercase ones provided to puzzle out which is which. As only one of the names is four letters long, you're set to unlock the combination.

But the book puzzle doesn't have anything to do with numbers, we told you that they're names. Or are you referring to a different safe entirely?

I'm really enjoying the game, but have been stuck on Case Three for hours and hours now...

 

Spoiler

I can't figure out how to get the reservation for the Spa from the book-lady who can't make her appointment. I've seen other people continue by referring to her boyfriend in dialogue, but that dialogue option doesn't appear for me. How do I trigger this dialogue so I can progress? When I speak to her boyfriend (who's in the entrance hall with his charge) nothing seems to happen for me. He just talks about being stuck with the kid while her Ma takes a break. No option to ask about the girlfriend. Not sure what to do now, please help me if you can!

Hm, looking at the game shows that you actually found a way to sequence break things. You were supposed to ask him about his girlfriend way earlier in the case, all the way back when he was in the store. Because you didn't do that, you didn't get the opportunity to help her and get the Spa Card. Give me your save and I'll debug the switch on so you can do that.

Hi Ekat, thanks so much for your reply! I assumed I was just being a silly potato and couldn't figure it out, but this explains why I got stuck. I attached my latest save file in the attachment; please let me know if I can provide anything else to help you help me out😄

Once again, thanks to you and Michael for making this game. The writing and the atmosphere is fantastic, I look forward to progressing through the rest of the cases.

No worries, and sorry for the trouble! Honestly I was baffled too until I poked around the events some more- it was never something I predicted happening, haha.

The ghost quest can't be continued until later in the story. You'll have to come back after; the time will be obvious

There's a number of things you can do - talk to Duchampe in the residence, figure out a couple of the puzzles around the mansion, etc.

I wound up putting together a walkthrough for Present's cases! Ideally this should cut down on some repeat questions. Hopefully it will also save everyone the time of going through the thread and waiting for replies.

Cheers!
