I've just installed this game and it looks pretty spooky. It also looks very complicated. Do you think a novice game player can handle it? scared nu2gaming

The game play itself is simple, but it IS based on H.P. Lovecraft, so it is in the horror genre. There are some genuinely creepy moments in the game, to be honest, and it's not for the faint of heart for that reason.

There are some action sequences that people found difficult. If you haven't played many action games you might want to get a couple under your belt before trying this one. It's worth playing, though.

I am a somewhat ( lol ) experienced action/adventure gamer. I am still playing it now. And I think its probably the hardest game I ever played. I am doing a lot better since I have weapons. I am no good at all at stealth and there has been lots of difficult situations in the game that depend on it to get you through to the next save point. Id definitely recommend something a lot easier for your first try at an A/A game.

Hi guys/gals; Well I'm going to give this a try. I've gone thru the morgue, activated some kind of machine that tortures a guy, taken the green crystal. What is that big machine in the middle of the room? If it is the time gate how do I put the crystal in it? help nu2gaming

If you are in the room that you can circle around a large area on the floor (not the morgue--further on), there shoud be a place to the right as you enter the room. It looks like a triangular holder.

Pokey; I think that's where I am. There is something in the middle of the floor that Jack thinks is some kind of power supply? I have picked up the green crystal (it's in inventory) I just don't know how to get it out of inventory and insert it in machine. nu2gaming

Open your inventory with the "I" key. Click on the item you want to use. If you are standing in the right location to use the item it will take it.

Thanks for the support. What am I getting myself into? I'm wandering around Innsmouth and keep getting caught by cop in alley of First National. I'm sure I'll get by him sooner or later. scared

EDIT: I've made it into the store twice. I've gotten the liquor and wooden handle but I can't find the trap door near the register. help That **** cop keeps getting me. Where is the trap door? nu2gaming

Check the floor behind the bar or counter.

Thanks JohnBoy; I did, but I don't see any trap door. I'll go check again.

EDIT: I found the trap door. Not by the register but behind the side counter. I need the wooden handle to open it. I have the handle in inventory but when I click on it nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? rotfl nu2gaming

I had trouble with that trapdoor too. Finally got it to open and then I fell down the opening. Make sure you are crouched and try from a slightly different direction maybe. It is finicky.

Maybe you're not in the right spot - all I had to do was click on the handle after I opened the inventory.

Thanks a million. I did finally manage to get it open and did indeed fall down the opening (just ahead of the cop). I've now left the Waite house and talked to Rebecca. I think I'll quit while I'm ahead and try to get some sleep. sleep goodnight all. nu2gaming

Good morning everyone; I'm having a terrible time with those guys in the hotel. I can barely make it to the third room before they get me. Why is my character moving so slowly? nu2gaming

Youre at the part that almost had me quit the game. I asked myself the same question as to why he moves so slowly. I guess its caused by the damage hes taken. I had to use god mode to practice this section. And when I learned what to do and where to go, I did it on my own. And it still wasnt easy.

un-oh. I don't know what happened. One minute I'm trying to escape my hotel room and the next minute I'm in an alley at a save/star spot with some guy (a couple of stories up) talking to me about sewers? I must have missed something. Should I go back to a prior save or move on? The w/t talks about ammo and medical boxes I should have gotten "a lot of items here you can save for later". How did I suddenly wind up in this alley? duh nu2gaming

Not certain, unless god mode does that. Looks like you skipped a whole lot of game, though.

But there is a trick to getting out of the hotel room. It is this:

The trick is not to get panicky. Keep moving forward, and never look back -- never -- except to bolt a door. It helps to turn the sound off here because it is making YOU panicky as well as Jack. You must try to go through the sequence a few times so you know where everything is in the sequence of hotel rooms. You do have time to do the sequence, but you have to always go directly to the next thing you have to do - no stopping, no turning around except to bolt doors, and no panicking!

Save your game immediately before going upstairs with the creep behind the hotel reception desk.

When you get to your room, go into the room next door and bolt the door that leads from that room into the hallway. In the same room -- see that Bookshelf/chest beside the door? That's what you must push aside to get into the next room. You can't do anything with it yet.

Go back into your room, and bolt your door. Go to bed.

Just before the movie of the fishmen breaksing into your room stops, you should be pushing on the walk key so that Jack gets out of his bed AS SOON as you have control of him, even if he is dizzy. You can skip the movie by using the backspace key if you get tired of watching it.

When you get out of bed, walk through the door into the next room, turn around and bolt it. Walk straight to the bookshelf and push it away from the wall to reveal the door. Open it, go through, and bolt it, and so on. Your aim is always to block every door so that the fishmen have to break it down, giving you a few more seconds.

Just remember to always bolt every door you can, and if you can't there will be something you can push in front of it. In the room with the window, push the bookshelf away from the window, open it, and jump through. You have to jump over the alley to the next place, which is a door to the left. Always look up when you jump, so you don't fall.

The fishmen keep following you until you get to the next save spot, so always keep moving ahead.

Thanks hagatha; I think I should go back to the hotel room because right now I'm in an alley? By a truck with some hanging meat, two guys at the bottom of the hill and nowhere to go. I must have skipped a lot of stuff. nu2gaming

Yeah JohnBoy I guess I did. I downloaded some patches. Right now I'm on a loading dock with some hanging pig carcasses. A truck is backed up to the loading dock. There are two guys at the bottom of the hill and I don't know where to go. The w/t says something about waiting behind some boxes next to a stationery enemy. I'm lost. The only boxes I see are next the the loading dock beside the truck. What do I do now? nu2gaming

Did you get a window with things to check. If so did you check god mode? Let me know exactly where you are at. Check the save youre at and tell me the location. Also have you taken a truck ride to the docks? If you did I dont understand how you got there before other things that take place.

JohnBoy; The save says "collapsed building". There is a dead guy laying on one of those eye/star marks on the floor. Some guy had been talking to me about a sewer (he's gone now) there are some sacks of something in the room, one open door and one door that will not open. If I go thru the open door I wind up in an alley down the hill from a meat packing place, I guess, there is a truck backed up to the loading dock and down the hill there are two men (one with a flashlight who keeps walking in and out of the picture and one who just stands there). If I move they see me and start shooting. Is there some other place I'm supposed to go? No, I have not taken a truck ride. I tried the truck door but it said I can't open it. This is making me long for the giant troll in Dreamfall. cry nu2gaming
