The boa constrictor gets tired squeezing-hugging Shay that it falls to the ground. Pick up the snake-Mr. Huggy.

Marshal Dune:    Go back to the right until the beach.

Use the exhausted snake on Marshal Dune. Mr. Huggy squeezes out a pitch pipe stuck in Marshal Dune's throat.

Get a superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit:

Marshal Dune:    Talk to Marshal Dune. Mog Chothra might have gone to his home beyond the gates of Plague Dam.

Loruna is a lost city pass the Plague Dam.

Build a superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit sand model:    Marshal Dune can build anything as long as it is made of sand.

Click on the plans on the wall. Give the gyroscopic schematic to Marshal Dune. I think sand is the perfect material for making spaceship parts.

Get a superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit made of sand.

Get the sand superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit stick together:    Go to the talking tree. Go left of the tree to be at the house with mailbox.

Mail box:    Check the mailbox of Curtis' house. Shay takes a missing flier of Vella Tartine from the mailbox.

Go right on main path to be at the talking tree place. Remember how the tree reacted with Vella.

Place the sand superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit on the "sick" throw up of the tree.

Use Vella's flier on tree. Ha! The sap hardened the sand superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit. Pick it up.

Curtis:    Go left and enter the house with a ladder through the roof. Talk to Curtis.

See that Curtis doesn't do wood anymore. He is now into metalworking. He orders his mold from a catalog.

Use the sap hardened sand superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit on Curtis.

Curtis likes the candle holder. Get the superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit.


Get the heavy duty antigravity unit:

Go upstairs to the room at left. Shay climbs the ladder to Meriloft.

F'ther and Lightbeard-Harm'ny:    Talk to F'ther. See that Lightbeard wants to get off his nest. F'ther has combined the ladders to get him down.

Learn about Vella. Harmony hates anything that's not light.

Click on the ladder by Lightbeard. The ladder goes down and Shay climbs on the ladder.

(This part is very glitchy for me. To get through, I have to get Lightbeard-Harmony or F'ther highlighted first by placing the crochet hook over them; then right click to start a dialogue. I can get the proper triggers to proceed from then on).

Click on Lightbeard to talk to him completely. He's naturally bouyant.

Knots:     Click on F'ther to start a dialogue (see note above to start dialogue).

Can you untie that bow on Harm'ny's cloud? Because it's in the way of us saving him? I'd better go find a knot expert for advice.

Remember the description of the knots or take picture of them.

Carol:    Go down the ladder to be at Curtis' house. Go right until the beach.

Talk to Carol completely. Ask her about the knots.

Select the description that closely resembles the knot seen by F'ther. These are what I saw in my replays:



A little bit like you strangely enough


A face that's really a cow's udder


A lazy pole vaulter

A bucket of fingers

Alligator wrestling a pretzel

Pencil:    Carol needs something to draw with for the untying diagram.

Go up to the spaceship and Alex. Give Alex the superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit.

Ask him for his pencil.

Untie the knot:    Give the pencil to Carol down by the pool. Get an untying diagram.

Go back up to Meriloft and F'ther. Climb the ladder to lower Harm'ny's cloud.

Use the diagram on F'ther. Give that knot another try.

See the diagram. Use the dialogue that best describes the steps. Follow the steps 1 - 2 - 3. If correct, F'ther will give a positive answer.




Make the boat go under the bridge


Pull apart the fighting snakes


Poke the clown in the eye


She loves me, she loves me not




Unravel the sweater


Tug on the piggy's tail


Pull off the fly's wings


Tickle the foot

The diagram might not match if the description of the knot given to Carol is the wrong one.

If wrong get a new diagram. Automatically be with Carol.

Harmony is heavy:    Ah, Lightbeard is exposed. A singing fish falls of the pile of stuff Harm'ny has hoarded.

F'ther gives the heavy duty antigravity unit to Shay and delivers it to the spaceship.

Get the correct pH of the caulking compound:

Go back down to talk to Father by the pool. Talk to him completely about Operation Dandelion and who Marek may be.

The pH of compound should be 7 before the final ingredient can be added.

Remember that the space spoon gives a chemical, nutrient content and ingredient breakdown of all the food that it shoves in Shay's mouth.

Use the space spoon on the concoction. It has a pH of 6.

Explore Meriloft:    Go back to Meriloft via the stairs at Curtis' roof.

See that F'ther and Harm'ny's cloud is gone. Go right to center of town. Look around.

Jessie the blue bird:    Go to Jessie the blue bird's nest. See that the egg is cracking but is having difficulty getting out. Jessie scares Shay off the nest.

Gus and fruit:    Go to the light passing through cloud-hole close to the trunk of the tree. Drop down to the lower level.

Go left and see Gus drinking fruit juice. Talk to him completely.

Get the tapper he uses to get fruit juice. Get a fruit from the pile.

Get shell:    Go through the hole in the trunk and then back to Jessie's nest at right.

Use the tapper on the cracked egg to help it hatch. Cute! Get eggshells that falls on the floor.

Get pH 7:    Go back to Father at the beach.

Use the eggshell on concoction to raise the pH. Test the pH using the spoon.

Use the fruit on concoction to lower the pH. Test the pH using the spoon.

Do this until the pH is 7.

Father shows Alex the caulking material. Father enters the main part of the ship to patch the hull.

Get radiation suit:

Go back to Meriloft via Curtis' roof. Go to the tree behind Jessie's nest.

Guards:    Talk to the 2 guards-druids chanting at the tree.

Shay will look for a stick to fight them for the robes. They are worshipping the tree because of the fruit. They are seeking answers.

Men at Cloud Shoes:    Go right to the center of town. Talk to Husker Tartine, father of Vella and Walt'r, husband of Carol. Learn about Vella.

Girls selling cupcakes:    Go down the hut and go right to next screen.

Talk to Rocky, Vella's sister and M'ggie, Carol's daughter. They are selling cupcakes for printing, distribution, etc... to raise awareness about missing Vella and Maiden Feast system lies.

Grandpa and Ch't:    Go to Grandpa Brommel Beastender at clouds at back. See him teach Ch't, Carol's son how to fight.

Talk to Granpa. Ch't gives money to Shay. He's been keeping the money that his dad gives for Harm'ny.

Grandpa frosted the cupcakes using his stick-cane. He has enough frosting for one more cupcake. He can't help frosting a plain cupcake.

Get the cane:    Buy a cupcake using the money given by Ch't.

Go back to the 2 husbands at Cloud Shoes. Talk to them about the cupcakes.

Walt'r eats only the frosting of the cupcakes. Give the cupcake to the 2 men. Husker will not eat something with his daughter's face. Walt'r eats the frosting off the cupcake. Now the cupcake needs frosting.

Go back to Grandpa and give him the cupcake. Grandpa frosts the cupcake. Get the cane.

Get the robes:    Go back to the druids-guards by the tree. Use the cane on the guards-druids. Shay loses.

They only pretended to be blind. They both fall through the cloud leaving the robes behind. The fly away on the bird. Get the robes.

Morelia and Twyla:    Go back to center of town. Go down the ladder at right. See Harm'ny in a cage.

Talk to Morelia, Vella's mother and Twyla, the rejected Maiden Feast girl. Well, at least your costume is cool.

Ask to make a costume. Twyla needs a pattern and material.

Talk to Harm'ny-Lightbeard several times. He doesn't want to be released. The cage is for his protection.

Get a radiation suit:    Give the baby radiation suit and the radiation proof curtains-robes to Twyla.

Get a feathered radiation suit.

Find an electronic genius:

Get the fish:    Go back down to the talking tree. See the fish caught in the tree's branch. It's too high.

Talk to the tree. Hey, want to hear a joke?

This is a random puzzle. My game has these: What's the smallest full-grown tree you ever heard of? I've seen one no bigger than my hand. A Palm Tree.

Pick up the singing fish.

Get wire from Carol:    Go to Carol by the pool. Show the fish to Carol.

Then use the crochet hook on Carol. But please promise to leave some fish in the ocean for future generations. Get the wire.

Hexipal buddy:    Look close at the hexipal buddy picked up from the sand. We need a pattern on how to place the wire.

Destination chart:

Alex:    Go back to Alex at the spaceship. If you haven't yet , give him the superconductive gyroscopic hypercam unit and feathery radiation suit.

Give Alex the pitch pipe and he whistles the last destination port visited by the ship: middle, middle, high, low and middle tone.

The ship is shaking because the heavy duty antigravity unit is warming up.



Do starfield repair:

Change to Vella by clicking on Vella's icon at right side of inventory bar.

Knife:    Hear a voice that is targeting something. Move and see a knife drops from above. Talk to the knife and then pick the knife up.

Learn about Commander and Mom.

Outer breach:    Look at the hole on the starfield wall. Go right.

Damage reports:    Hear an announcement about outer breach on wall. The ship tries starfield repair. The starfield is obstructed by foreign body.

Take the space helmet from the crack on the wall. The ship seals the starfield wall.

Do air transport system repair:

The announcement states that it is unable to repressurize air transport and set antigravity field. Air transport system is incomplete.

Look at the 2 machines with ripped tubes on floor. Each machine has 3 holes.

Air tube:   

See 2 ripped areas on air tube hanging from hatch at right. One rip is at bottom and one at top. Climb the tube to see the hatch at top. It is closed.

Get a short tube and use it on machine:

Go down and use Dutch the knife at bottom ripped area of tube to get a short tube.

We need to have the middle panel close to the tubing to pop out.

Use the short cut tube on the 2 machines. This might be a random puzzle.

In my game; place (click-hold-drop) one end of the tube on the bottom and middle tubing of the left machine.

(On replay, the short tube was bottom and middle of the right machine).

The panel by the hatch and tubing at right pops out close to the hanging tube. It can be used for support.

Get a longer tube and use it on machine:

Climb the tube to the top ripped area of the tubing.

Use Dutch the knife on the top part of the tube to get long tube. Vella falls on the popped out panel by the tube.

Use the long tube on the 2 machines.

In my game, one end goes on the top of the left machine and middle of right machine.

(On replay, the long tube works on the top tubing of both machines).

Air transport is repressurized and antigravity is initiated. The ship is now functioning. Vella floats in the air.

Get to opened hatch-airlock door:

Vella is not capable of moving. The hatch at bottom is now open.

See a yellow claw on the left, 2 blue boots (one at left and one at right) and a giant hand above.

Get the yellow claw tube:     Take the space helmet from inventory. Wait for the yellow claw to be close and facing Vella. Click the helmet on claw to get claw.

Get the boot:    The blue boot right of Vella is closer. Use the yellow claw on the boot under the hand at right.

Wait for the hand to close when Vella is facing the boot and then click the claw on the boot.

Place the cursor with claw on top of the boot, wait for correct time and then release.

Go to the opened hatch:    The claw will not release the boot. Use the claw-boot on the giant hand to move Vella above the hatch.

Vella recognizes the hand as one of the tentacles.

The hand floats above the open hatch. Drop to-click on the open hatch. Vella is inside the airlock area of the spaceship.

Find out who is behind sweetie pie:

Explore the ship:    Read the airlock warning sign on the wall. Go to the hallway at left.

The ship is moving. Vella brought Mog Chothra back to life. Talk to the hexipal swinging a warning light.

Examine the trash chute left of the asleep teleport door. The train door doesn't open.

Go left through the playroom hallway. The playrooms are closed and the intercom stands are sending out electricity. Exposed wires, broken glass and debris are all over.

Go left and move the blockage.

Control room:    Exit through door at left to be at the destroyed control room. See the screen wall is broken and the ship is flying over water.

Check the console and Vella notes it is as fake. The door to the Space Weaver at base of the podium is locked.

Enter through door at left and be at the living quarters hallway.

Mom's quarters:    See the intercom wire at Mom's quarters (last door at left and beside Shay's bedroom) is exposed and sparking.

Talk through door. Talk to Mom. Mog Chothra's brain?  Can you open this door? This is Engineering department. It's me Shay. If you don't believe I'm Shay, I'm leaving!

Vella doesn't sound like Shay. Mom wants to be sure.

Find out what is going on:

Shay's bedroom:    Enter the door at left.

Look around. Check the sad monitor and the fake Shay on the bed.

Marek:    Go through the vent on the control panel to be in Marek's lair.

Go left and see Marek underneath fallen debris. Talk to Marek.

Learn about "the last one".  Marek says he was sent to save Shay from Mom, the brain of the ship.

His mission is to get control of this ship. He explains about Shay's rescuing maidens from the plague. Shay has instinct better than technology.

Shay was interested in the last one-Vella. The maidens are locked up.

Marek wants to get to the central control room. Marek opens the door to his quarters.

Explore rooms:

Marek's bedroom:    Enter the door at left. Look around. The prisoners' door is locked. Check the bed.

Trophy room:    Enter the vent at left. Look around. Read all the papers and examine the picture.

Medical report:     After Shay's 5th year, he has grown 2 inches taller and 3 shoe sizes. Splargh therapy seems to be working.

Shoe Fairy letter:     Shay got red striped shoes and green with skulls shoes. Shay wants red shoes with skulls for next year.

Award for Shay Volta Best Actor "Purple Boots - The Musical".

Second place in shoe tying contest. Painting of a red boot.

Shay first boot, Age 5. It is dotted.

Jar of teeth of Volta, S. Age: 6. Deciduous incisors 8,9.

Go left to exit the nexus and be at the fake control room.

Go to the other side of blue teleporter:    Enter the blue door to be at starboard hallway at left. Go right pass the locked playrooms. Go through another door and forward.

Enter the blue teleporter to go back to nexus. Vella's head gets bigger.

Convince Mom that Vella is Shay:

Go left to the fake control room and then to the door at left to go back to living quarters.

Mom:    Talk through door of Mom's room. It's me Shay. Mom needs more proof.

All answers to Mom's question can be deduced from the items at the trophy room.

What was the name of your favorite stuff animal as child? Mister... Huggy (from Shay's encounter with the boa constrictor).

Of all my pet names for you, which one was your favorite? Please, can we not do this?

Mom made his space boots until 9th birthday. She never repeats the same color or design. What is color, size and pattern of his first space boots?

(Based on the items at the trophy room: the shoe fairy letter states red and green boots; while the fireman was wearing blue boots. The purple boot was a musical.)

So the color is purple.

(Based on the items at the trophy room: his first boot was at 5 years of age. He grew 3 sizes after 5 years of age. His picture with Mr. Huggy is size 7 boots.)

So the size of his first boot is size 4.

((Based on the items at the trophy room: Shay had polka dotted first boot).

So the pattern is polka dot.

The door opens. Mom sees Vella. The ship lurches and both are thrown inside the control room.


Learn what is happening:

Mom interrogates Vella. Marekai-Marek-wolf removes his mask. He intends to finish Operation Dandelion.

They arrive in Loruna behind the plague Dam. The spaceship is to be sterilized upon arrival.

Mom:    Take Lorraine the knife. Talk to Hope-Mom to update her about the monster and maidens. The maiden kidnapping sounds like what Thrush would come out with.

Marekai:     Press the red button bottom left of the monitor to talk to Marekai. They are going to the Red Hangar for processing. The maidens are in safe room.

The dam was built to separate them from the genetic inferiors at the badlands (like Vella and other humans).

They need the girls for "unnamable". Shay was raised to be weak but sensitive enough to select the right genetic material.

Find a way out of here:

Click on the orange thing on the ceiling. It is the central control sphere that Mom used to look at everything in the ship.

Go to the base of the fake control room. Talk to space weaver.

He needs a star chart, yarn and spindle.

See that the hatch at right to Marek's lair is blocked.

Find the maidens and a hook:

Marekai's lair:    Go to Shay's bedroom and then down the hatch.

Listen to Marekai talk to the leader of Thrush. Vella is significant to Shay.

The other maidens are to be incinerated after the repair the ship. They do not want to answer to others why they lost a collector-Shay.

If you haven't taken Lorraine the fork from the control desk at Hope's room - do so now.

Toy train room:    Go to the playrooms hallway behind the blue door at fake control room.

Enter the train room left of the teleporter and trash chute.

Talk to the crying yarn playmates and the train conductor. They are crying because Shay the young hero is not here.

Get Shay:    Go to the galley and take the blow up Shay from the table.

Go to the ice cream avalanche playroom. Use the plastic Shay on the whipped cream gun to get a blown up Shay. The whipped cream is made by Father and can fix flat tires with it.

Train room:    Go back to the train room. Use blown up hero on crying playmates.

See the train ride the rails. Yeah, let's do the wave. Uh oh! One of the playmates gets stuck on a branch and unravels.

Vella gets the bunched up yarn. Blown up Shay burst. Vella is banned for life also.



Make destination chart:

If you have played Shay's part already and have not done this part, get Shay to give the pitch pipe to Alex - do so now. Change to Shay at inventory bar. Get the last destination pattern.

Yarn:    As Vella, go to space weaver's room. Give him the bunched up yarn. He doesn't want the yarn that way.

In inventory combine the fork and the yarn to get yarn and spindle. Use the spindle on space weaver.

Alter the star chart:    Give the star chart to space weaver.

Immediately go down and use the hook from the maiden on the woven star chart to make the pattern of the last destination port whistled by Alex: middle, middle, high, low and middle.

Use hook to fill in the second middle and high triangles.

Lift off aborted:

The space weaver tries to get the ship going but Mom blocked the engine.

Mom:    Go to Hope at the real control room. Talk to Hope to learn that Marekai is doing a navcheck right now (as seen on screen). When he finishes; he will go outside the ship to finish repairing the ship.

Volta Family picture:    Look close at the family picture on the console shelf.

Note the geometric-triangular patterns on the board behind the Volta Family. This clue is random and changes during the game - best to copy it down.


Find an electronic genius:

Show Alex the hexipal.

Study the hexipal:    Combine the wire to hexipal. See a closeup of the unwired hexipal.

There are 6 red contact points.

Click on a contact point and then another point to join them with a wire.

3 colored wires can be placed before the wire runs out.

They are placed in order: blue first, yellow second and lastly the red. The machine reads the shapes in that order.

Learn which contact point make what geometric shape:   

Place wires on hexipal by joining 2 contact points.

Number the contact points in your notes 1 on top, going clockwise to 6.

Always wire the hexipal: blue first, yellow second and lastly the red.

Read the hexipal on the diamond reading-charging stand left of the exit door of the spaceship.

Do this wire reading until all contact points are read.

Note down the shapes made by those contact points and their positions (1-6 clockwise) - you will use those positions for other patterns in the game.

Note also that the first end-click of the wire is placed based on the left column shapes. The other end is the shape on the right.

Find the correct pattern:   

Recall the pattern seen on the Volta family portrait on Hope's console. Note the pattern is random.

Reproduce that portrait pattern on the hexipal with the blue on top, yellow middle and red at bottom.

Wire the hexipal:   

Knowing now which contact point shapes are for blue, place the first wire on the contact point for the left blue geometric shape and then the other end on the contact point for the right blue geometric shape.

Do the second wiring for yellow and then the last for the red.

If correct, Shay will say that he has good feeling about this pattern.

This puzzle is random. In my game:

Waking hexipal pattern:

Top left blue shape (inverted triangle) is contact point 2 that goes to contact point 5 (vertical arrows).

Yellow is contact point 4 (horizontal arrows) that connects to contact point 1 (cutup triangle).

Red (inverted triangle) is contact point 3 that connects to contact point 6 (split triangle).

Hexipal is alive. Give hexipal to Alex. Hexipal goes around and fixes things that are broken.

Liftoff of the spaceships:

Father returns and says that he didn't patch everything. Alex starts the lift off.

The Tartine family arrives and demands answers about what happened to Vella.

Clarence the Deadeye God has woken.

Marekai leaves the ship and is by the trash bin. Mog Chothra sails away. The red Orb is alive and flashing. Marekai jumps away. The bomb-orb explodes.

Clarence-Airship Maloruna arrives at the base and asks to enter. Gate opens. Clarence meets Mog Chothra.

The walkway is too short to get to Mog Chothra. The base starts firing at Mog Chothra.


Click on either spaceship to select the character you want to play.


Talk to the Tartine family. See the hexipal dancing with Rocky, Vella's sister.

Try to enter through the door at right. Alex stops Shay.

Use the Grabbing Gary remote. Mom resets the manual to centralized controls and Gary's arms stops hugging.


Vella recognizes Alex' ship. Space Weaver does not want to change destination program and refuses Hope's orders.

Hexigal and death ray:

Exit the control room.

Find wires for hexigal:    See hexigal under debris. Her wires are gone.

Go to Shay's bedroom and down the hatch to Marekai's lair. Take the wires on Marekai's computer.

Head of Thrush:    Talk to Marekai's boss, the head of Thrush. Learn why they want Vella and their plan for their future Lorunian and Shay. See (Xe)Levina Clench.

Fix hexigal:   

Note the pattern burned on hexigal. There are remnants of colors on the contact points. The burned marks are consistent with the order the wires are added.

The Warning pattern (based on my game's positions):

Blue wire - 1 to point 3.

Yellow wire - 2 to point 5.

Red wire - 6 to point 4.

Arrange the wire and Hexigal is back to her warning ways.

Fake control room:    Go to fake control room and climb the podium. Use the death ray remote while at the podium.

Alex realizes that Vella set off the death ray. Clarence overheats. Alex goes down to shut down the manual of the death ray.


Explore the inner part of Clarence:

Now that Alex left the door open, go down and look around. Talk to Ray, Shay's father.

Old book:    Read the old book at foreground. It shows the hexipal harp pattern.

Real old quadripals:    Enter the left entryway. Be stopped by the old hostile quadripals. They block the way to the death ray control panels.

Harp:    Exit and go right. See old musical instruments. A harp is at center of room.

Check the panel on wall beside the large drum and see that the large drum mallet is gone.

Take the radio at foreground.

Entice and distract the old quadripals:

Take hexipal:    Go back upstairs and try to take the dancing hexipal.

Use the radio on hexipal and he repairs the radio.

Give the fixed radio to Alex who is still trying to contact Loruna.

Entice the quadripals:    Go downstairs. Use hexipal on the quadripals at left hallway. They are in awe and worship the 6 tone hexipal.

Go to center room. The quadripals follow.

Rewire hexipal to harp pattern:

Review the harp wire pattern from the old book. Rewire hexipal from the original dancing pattern (blue is 5-1, yellow is 5-4 and red is 5-6).

The harp pattern (based on my game's positions):

Blue wire - 3 to point 2.

Yellow wire - 2 to point 5.

Red wire - 3 to point 5.

Harp room:    Go to right room. The quadripals follow.

Use the harp wired hexipal on the harp. Hexipal plays the harp and the quadripals dance.

Deathray panel:

Go to left room now that the quadripals are gone.

Take the drum mallet from pillar.

Go around the pillar and pull the handle to turn on the power for the manual control of the pyramid-death ray on top of the ship. Alex will turn this off if Vella plays with her remote again.


Distract Space Weaver and Hope:

Remember that Hope changes the controls to central rather than manual; preventing Shay from using Grabbin' Gary.

Go down to Space Weaver's room. Go down the ladder and stand in front of the woven scarf.

Touch it and Space Weaver says do not touch because he-it is sensitive.

Program hexigal to harp pattern.

The harp pattern (see Shay's pattern above):

Blue wire - 3 to point 2.

Yellow wire - 2 to point 5.

Red wire - 3 to point 5.

Place harp programmed hexigal in front of the woven material.

Hexigal tickles Space Weaver. Space Weaver calls Hope for help.

Immediately go up and exit. Meet Hope at the exit.

Reset control:     Immediately go to Hope's room- control room. Press the red button to get MANUAL on the monitor.

If Hope gets back here, redo the tickling and the run to the control room.

Death ray:    Go to the podium of the fake control room as fast you can. Save game here.


Distract Alex:

Remember that Alex turns off the death ray whenever Vella uses it.

Go to the Harp room at right. (Be sure that death ray is powered up.)

Take hexipal and stand in front of the drum.

Combine hexipal and the drum mallet.

Rewire hexipal to Warning pattern.

Place warning with mallet hexipal in front of the large drum.

The Warning pattern (using Vella's pattern):

Blue wire - 1 to point 3.

Yellow wire - 2 to point 5.

Red wire - 6 to point 4.

Save game here.  Hexipal makes a ruckus. Alex comes down and tries to stop hexipal.

Immediately, exit - climb upstairs - use Grabbin Gary (now that Vella has the ship on manual).

Mog embraces Clarence.

If Alex comes back here - redo from save game again or earlier.


Hopefully Hope is still distracted with Space Weaver and that Shay has the death ray turned on.

Use the death ray remote while standing on the podium of the fake control room.


Watch what happens to Mog and Clarence. Shay is in a bind. Vella is caught by Marekai. Vella makes Grandpa proud. Hope and Ray get the fright of their lives. Grabbin' Gary is a real professional.

Watch the credits to see illustrations of what happened to the characters in the game.
