Tips and Tricks:
* Invetory item combinations are one-way only. If I write here that
you have to combine batteries with remote, then remote with batteries
will not work.
* Some of these timers are extremely stringent near the end of the game,
and you use the same timer for the entire scene, including mini-games.
Always try to finish as quickly as possible because you never know what’s
going to hit you next. (Don’t want to get stuck with 30 seconds to do 5
slider puzzles, do we?)
* I have videos for all story scenes, images for all puzzles, but I’ve left
the most obvious ones, like “memory” out.
* THE PHONE # IN THE RESTAURANT IS 452.
