Aurora: The Secret Within
Lexicon Entertainment/BluMiAL Studios
Walkthrough by Rice Burner July 2008
The game manual can be found in the game folder. It is a PDF file. I would suggest you read it before playing the game. It will give you the information you need to use the interface. There is no spoken dialog but you will have dialog choices to click on at the bottom left of the screen. The inventory is located at the top of the screen but you must put your cursor on the chest icon on the left to see the contents. I would suggest you use the magnifying glass at the left of the inventory on all items as some of them will give you more information. There are a few timed episodes. You may need a patch if you use Vista or XP and experience a problem. Get that from BluMiAL Studios at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I experienced a ‘flash’ error when starting the game and again when loading a save but it didn’t interfere with the game if you click it off. I played on Windows XP. This game is in English but it is a translation from Italian. There are several cases where names or places differ in spelling. I have used one spelling throughout for consistency.
This walkthrough shows the way I played the game. There may be alternate ways of doing it.

Exit from close up and look to the right of the panel with six clocks. Near the floor you will find a pair of pliers. Look at the danger sign on the panel. See a digital lock on the left side. There is a red wire leading to it. Use the pliers to cut that red wire. Save your game here. Now you can open the panel. You will hear a countdown. Quickly get the pliers from inventory and cut the black wire on the bottom (it’s hard to see). Get the pliers again and wait for the sound of explosion. At that first sound of explosion quickly cut the red wire. If you don’t get it done right then go back to the save and try again. Just a note: cut the wires in the middle, not the ends. If you succeed the sound of alarms will be heard and you can leave to the left of the control panel. Go down the tunnel to the door at the end. You will be taken back to the Boulevard Café. Watch the cutscene.
