"Shifted" printer cabinet and bed and found extension cord next to bed. Used this to plug in computer.

Key opened drawer on desk - got braille dictionary - closer look at dictionary gives you scrap of paper.

Found gas canister in tall white cabinet - used it on gas range and turned it on...

Stuck now.

opened the fridge. Found ICE and KEY. used BRAILLE DICTIONARY on the note on the braille typewriter then got the code for the cabinet under stove.

I got POT then melted the ice using the pot, stove, and gas. I got KEYCARD. I used it on the box in the shelf and now I'm stuck >.<

Clue on chair is the colour of the question mark then look in the fridge for that colour

Sneaky said...

Thanks for that clue, unknown! :)
Now, I'm stuck with 2 slips of paper and the dictionary...

Jessica said...

have the flash drive now but there's nothing i can find to use it with. help, please. :)

Jessica said...

finally got it. for some reason, you have to put the flash drive with the laptop BEFORE you turn it on. no idea why it matters, but it does. hope this helps! :)

Lulu said...

Jessica, where did you find the flash drive?

Anonymous said...

Out!

Seaduckie said...

@Sneaky: You need to put one slip of paper on top of the other to make it a whole and then you can translate it with the dictionary.

@Lulu: The flash drive is in the cup of noodles.

how do you get the code for the cabinet under the stove????

Shrimp said...

For the cabinet code, ask the braille typing machine once you've got the dictionnary.

Rava said...

Ok ,I give up...

I know the books are a clue to something but I can't figure it out. Got one slip of paper and the dictionary still and used everything else.

Thanks Thor! just didn't realize you could use letters on the codes, DUH, out now!

I liked this one, was stuck until I realized the lock on the printer table needed the object from fridge as it's answer LOL. Otherwise this was fairly smooth. Thanks for sharing this, Bart!

(windfire) I quit, I used a Braile website to decode 4792 manually, (it seemed like the correct response to the clue,) and it didn't work. If we're meant to be reading clues in Braile it should accept the correct answer even if we go to a website to get the info.

Thijs said...

Needed a hint for the code with the questionmark and key, but other than that quite easy. That being said, I still don't understand how it makes sense to look in the fridge for the answer.

What do you mean you used the dictionary? Are they letters? If they are, they don't correspond to any real braille alphabet. If they are numbers, they don't correspond either.

Anonymous said...

And besides, all I can see are dots in that dictionary. I don't see letters or numbers with those dots to explain what the dots are. How in the heck are you using the dictionary.

And if this freaking game tells me one more time that everything looks completely normal I will lose my mind.

I used the walkthrough to figure out how to use the dictionary. But, I had already figured out what the braille on the two part note said by using a braille dictionary on the internet. The game wouldn't let me input the number (6501) even though it was correct!!! Once I used the dictionary in the game, it let me input the number. That's just a bunch of B*llsh*t. Frustrating!!!

NotMarian said...

I finished. That was a really frustrating game.

Anonymous said...

To "use the dictionary," you actually have to click on the dictionary in your inventory and then click on the braille machine to "use" it on the braille machine. Then the game tells you what the code is.

You aren't meant to be able to read anything in the actual dictionary.

Anonymous said...

All in all quite straightforward. However, if one would get a clue whether to enter numbers or words would help.

(Hint: Below the printer enter the word.)

dyork said...

Fair enough, I guess, but easy to get stuck.

The link from the picture to the vegies in the fridge is far from obvious.

Then the two Braille codes won't work until you actually use the dictionary to decode them (bad luck if you already know Braille!).

Then the USB won't plug in unless the light is green.

Too many gotchas for my liking. Down vote.

I agree with the commenters. The carrot clue was pretty obscure, and having to actually "use" the dictionary was also not obvious. I, too, had looked up an image of the Braille dictionary and translated the 6501 clue, and was frustrated that it didn't work. This could have been constructed better, especially since it was pretty short. I prefer quality over quantity, so they should not try to push out a game a week if they're going to be frustrating and not entertaining.
