Walkthrough by MaGtRo      September, 2002

Game play: The game is point and click interface. Read the manual that can be found on the CD. The top right star on the game frame is the quit button. The top left star is the Options menu. The Options has the new, save, load game, deactivate music and sound. The inventory bar is at the bottom of the screen. Consult Abdullah's notebook for clues and recap of what has happened. Talk to each character repeatedly using all dialogues especially the blabla dialogue until they repeat themselves. The cursor changes to red on a hotspot and a framed arrow for exits. Right click to return taken inventory back in the bar. By checking or looking at each objects or character will add them in the dialogue list. I found several glitches. If I go back to a saved game, some of the inventories taken in events after the saved game opened are gone. And if I'm in a different timeslot and try to go to a saved game of an earlier timeslot, no matter what is done no progress to the next timeslot happens. These problems are solved by quitting and restarting the game.

The introduction shows a caped man wearing a hat being chased by another man on the street and at dockside. The caped man climbs aboard a ship and escapes. The next day, Abdullah reads a letter aboard the ship, Glutomax.

Dear Abdullah,

The Eye of Kraken has been stolen from me. It is an object related to a cult of worshippers of the Great Kraken. If it were to end up between the wrong hands, it could prove very dangerous for the human kind. I don't know the identity of the thief but I know for sure that he is presently aboard the Glutomax. I want you to identify him and get the Eye of the Kraken back.

Good luck and have a good trip.

Yours truly,

Titien Granzoub

Monday Morning

Abdullah's Cabin #1:            There's a knock on the door. Aboubakar enters the cabin. Abdullah is on a diplomatic mission to deliver a secret document to our correspondent on Hyade Island. Kraken is a giant mythical squid.  Aboubakar found a small wooden squid.  They discuss a plan that Abdullah be the one who found the squid. This will facilitate the search for the owner and can ask questions. Aboubakar advises to ask the captain for the list of the passengers. Aboubakar is in cabin #6 and he wants to be informed of the progress of the investigation. In inventory is the notebook, money, top secret letter and the message from Titien.
