General gameplay hints Being informed about gameplay mechanics is important for your enjoyment of any game. Pay attention to the following: Remember to right click Right click allows you to make observations about objects and items. Remember to make a point of studying new items in your inventory by right clicking on them. Right clicking on certain objects in your environment can also provide clues. Examine inventory items In the character inventory, there's a button with a magnifying glass. If you left click on this, it opens a special viewing screen. If you then left click on any item, you can view it in greater detail in this viewing screen.
Study your surroundings Remember to very carefully examine every new scene you come across. Look out in particular for when your cursor changes into a hand (meaning you can pick something up), a little man (meaning there's a transition to a new scene) and a magnifying glass (which means you can closely inspect that particular area).
Hint system This hint system is a small .html file that can be opened in your web browser. It's useful if you need a nudge in the right direction, but still want to figure out the answers yourself. You choose a line of enquiry and follow it to reach the parts that you're having trouble with. No answers are directly revealed.
