Mike Dawson journal #4 : I’ve made it! By removing their spaceship and destroying the mirror, I’ve finally been able to trap the Ancients in their cursed dimension! The Keeper of the Scrolls provided me with pills in order to deal with the embryo in my head and even sent the beautiful librarian my way… Now if only someone could buy this house off my hands...
As I was suspecting last time, I was very close to the endgame and very far at the same time, because I was once again in a dead-end situation. Turns out you could put several items under the cell pillow and not just the pin, allowing you to successfully keep part of your inventory before having everything stolen from you. I would have loved to find that by myself but of course, I had to admit I was stuck once again and did look at the hints Ilmari gave my on my second gameplay post. His third hint in the “Jail” hint thread was that I could only put three things under the pillow. It meant I could put more than one thing! That’s kinda obvious I blame myself for not at least try to do this by myself.
|Don’t try this at home, kids!|
|Errr… yeah, that’s… exactly what I was trying to do!|
|Well all this work was definitely worth it…|
|You had to guess the building on the left was a spaceship in the first place|
|Bim! Take that you priceless family heirloom!|
|Yeah, well, I did take a shower for you, you know?|
|Convenient isn’t it?|
|Ah aaaah, the Keeper of the Scrolls, the librarian… makes sense… kinda|
|Ok, who wants to buy a haunted house? Cheap price, opportunity of a lifetime!|
SIDE QUESTION : I wanted to ask any of you with knowledge of this game (Ilmari?) if you knew if there was any use for the binoculars? You can look at empty landscapes in the Dark World and observe your empty house in the real world, but it doesn’t seem that useful. Same thing with the “Lost and Found” case in the police station? It feels like it should have an use, like getting back lost inventory items, but it’s always empty…
See you all very soon for the Final Rating!
