January 2020: Walkthrough by: Dick Leeuw
If you have found this walkthrough via google search or via another site then you have probably not visited my site.
A lot more very detailed game walkthroughs can be found on the site of Louis Koot at: www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl
This is an Escape game with 10 chapters, these chapters can be played in 3 levels of difficulty: easy, normal and hard.
Some drawers are locked so you have to find the key because the drawer can hold a clue.
Here you can adjust some things, you can change your username and if you click on the keyboard in the game controller you will see the controls.
You move with the WASD keys, you interact and rotate with the mouse.
You can crawl with the C-key, you can also run but you don't actually use that.
Click OK a few times and you will be in the Level Selection, if you start you can only go to Chapter 1.
Click on START, you are at the bottom of a staircase.
Step through the door and a voice says that time is now starting.
You really have to look in all the corners and holes for the keys and gems, often crawl to see everything properly.
On the screenshots you can see how they can be hidden.
To the left of the door you see that machine hanging.
You still have to find the 3 parts for this machine, they can be in all rooms of this chapter.
Open the door of the first cupboard and look on all the shelves, the second cupboard is open.
Grab everything you see, often a piece of paper with a number and a key.
The third cupboard is locked, you see a question mark floating to the left of the cupboard, click on it and you will get an explanation about the lock.
You must find 3 pieces of paper with a number.
Search everywhere, look in all the drawers that are open, some can only be opened much later when you have found the key.
Click on the Tab key and look at the papers, you can see at the edges what the order should be.
Often you will find a big key inside.
Number the paintings from left to right 1 to 4, the height determines the order.
For me that is now: 3, 4, 2, and finally 1, so the order of colors becomes: green, purple, red and yellow.
Walk to the end of the corridor, look everywhere again.
Walk to the painting in front of you and click on the right edge, the painting moves to the side.
Open the door of the safe and you will usually find a gem here.
Walk to the end of the corridor, the side corridor to the right you go later.
The top drawer can be opened, the key for the second drawer can be found later.
On the right of the boxes is a note with the indication for the color code.
You can now open the door.
There is also a note with crosses and circles somewhere in this room, this is the code for a lock in another room.
This can be on the desk, in the drawers of the desk or on the shelves of the bookcase.
Keys can also lie on the chair, which are often difficult to see.
If you are close by then you can move the cupboard, behind which you will find another safe.
Then go back to the corridor and enter the side corridor.
Look again in all corners and holes, on all boards and pick up what you find there.
Go to the right, on the left you see a door with a card reader on the left.
Opposite the door is a gray cupboard, on the side of this cupboard or on the other gray cupboard you see 3 rows of arrows.
Click the Tab key to view the note in your inventory, see where the circles and crosses are.
There is a panel with 3 x 3 lights in the cupboard, the circles represent a green light.
Click on the right lights and you hear something shift, turn around and you see that the bookcase has shifted.
Enter the next room, before you see a desk. View everything again.
To the left against the wall is a chest, you can move it and behind it you will find a safe.
Look what is in the safe.
On the other side is a cupboard against the wall, open the cupboard and grab the things you see here.
Then turn to the right and you will see a cupboard hanging on the wall in the left corner with a numeric padlock.
Then go to the entrance, to the left of the entrance is a machine with a dial.
Put this code on the rings of the padlock and click on the lock, the cabinet is now open.
Then walk to the door in the other room and click on card reader, the door can now be opened.
Go inside and search everything again, In the cupboard and next to the cupboard.
You are now almost finished with Chapter 1, your inventory now contains a number of keys and 3 parts of a triangle.
Walk to the different desks and try to open the drawers that are still locked.
Now you can open this door, in the middle of the room is a base with a paper roll on it.
Take the paper roll and you are done with the first chapter.
You now see your score and where you are, click OK and you will return to the selection screen.
You can play the same chapter again with less time or you go to chapter 2.
Click on Chapter 2 and then choose easy, click on start and you will start on Chapter 2.
You stand in a hall, in front of you is a steel door.
You are standing in front of a staircase, go downstairs and you are standing in front of a cupboard hanging on the wall, locked of course.
The last puzzle is in this cupboard, you have to look for 3 numbers: a green, a red and a blue number.
These numbers can be on everything, on chairs, desks or in cupboards.
You can now go left or right here, no matter what you do first.
Left is a side corridor, go in there and search everything.
You may find a gear here.
Walk further to the end, there is a steel door that is locked.
Turn to the right and on the wall there is an open cupboard, this should contain 3 gears and you have to look for it.
Once you have found the gears, place them in this cupboard and the door will no longer be locked.
Walk back and go left and then right into another corridor.
Immediately to the right is a box with a note on it.
You can't go far down this corridor because there are a couple of boxes.
Then walk back, go left into the corridor and continue along the stairs.
The corridor is blocked by a cupboard, just before the cupboard is a corridor to the right.
Go down the hall, on the right are a few cupboards and a shelf with books.
Search everything again.
A little further on the right is a steel door that is locked with an electronic lock.
A little further down the hall is a box, which you can slide back and you will see a safe in the wall.
Then walk back to the cupboard that has fallen and push it up again.
Behind it are a few narrow cupboards, where you can find 1 or more things.
Then go left into the hallway, there is a pallet against the wall and above it is a cupboard.
You need a key for that locker.
Walk to the steel door while searching for things again.
Then turn to the right, a painting hangs on the wall.
Then turn further to the right and you'll see a shelf with books and a table next to it.
Take a look at everything, there is a clue for the last puzzle in the bottom drawer.
To the right of the bookcase is a chest, on the box is a small box.
Open the small box and there is a note, this is an indication of the painting that you have pushed aside.
If all went well you have now found 3 gears, now walk back to the door with the cupboard next to it.
Click on the axes and the gears are placed in the cupboard, you can now open the door,
Go inside, on the left is a cupboard on the wall, if you can't open it yet, the key is somewhere in the room.
Search all drawers, cabinets, boxes and boxes.
In the wall behind the door you see a safe with a code lock, enter the numbers of the note that you found behind the painting.
Herein is the key for the cupboard at the bottom of the stairs.
If you now have more than 1 key, go past all the cupboards and drawers that are still closed to view them.
You have found 3 coloured numbers, with me it was: green 6, red 9 and a blue 1.
You now have to click on the green lever as often as the green number, then click on the red lever as many times as the red number.
Do this also with the blue handle: with me it was 6 x on the green handle, 9 x on the red handle and 1 x on the blue handle.
Walk to that door and go inside, there is another roll of paper on a pedestal.
Grab the paper roll and this chapter is now ready.
Now click on Chapter 3 and you will start on Chapter 3.
You are in a hall again, in front of you is a steel door.
Click on the latch to open the door, go inside.
You have to search in all corners and holes, cupboards and drawers, boxes and crates to find keys and gems.
It is sometimes difficult to see, here are a few examples of those difficult places.
You see 2 steel doors In front of you, both locked. The right door has an electronic lock.
Opposite that right door is a locker on the wall, also locked.
Along the wall are a number of boxes.
Then open the left steel door and go inside.
On the left is a desk and against the left wall is a sofa, on the right is a bookcase.
Next to the bookcase you see a passage that is blocked with shelves.
Further to the rear, a cupboard hangs on the wall, opposite that cupboard is a steel door.
There are also a few drawers against the wall, and in the middle of the room there is a coffee table.
There is a chest on the desk, locked, and there can be a note with a clue for a padlock in that chest.
You will find this note in a box or a drawer that is locked. The order of the sentences on the left note and the words on the other note are different every time.
A key can lie on the back of the sofa, which is hard to see.
Walk to the drawers against the wall, a note can be in a drawer.
The steel door is still locked, go to the cupboard on the wall.
Look again at the 5 paintings in the other room and note how the paintings hang.
Walk back to the hall and you will see that the electronic lock of the right door is now "Unlocked".
Behind it you will find a safe with a code lock, you may already have the clue for this lock or you will find it.
With me it was now: S R T.
Open the safe and see what it contains.
To the left of that table you see steel door, the end of this chapter.
You should now have found the key for the steel door in the other room so go to that door.
Enter the room, there are a number of things to be found.
Search everywhere and then go to the 4 cupboards with the 4 posters above them.
The number of bottles on the cupboards forms the numbers of the code.
Walk to the steel door with the code lock and enter the code found here, click on enter and the door is now “Unlocked”
Go inside and take the paper roll from the base, end of this chapter.
You will see your score again.
Click this away and you are back in the selection screen.
Select EASY and click on start.
