Episode 1: The Cruise Ship Walkthrough (Spoiler Free)
By The Virgin Queen
A small (spoiler free) walkthrough for the cruise ship area of Episode 1.
Please rate my guide if you find it useful! Thank you! :)

IMPORTANT - There are many known bugs going on with this game right now that will cause you to re-load your last save to continue. So save yourself the hassle of having to re-play potentially hours worth of the game. SAVE OFTEN AND USE MULTIPLE SAVE SLOTS!

Playing the Game:
  • Make sure you do the 1-minute long tutorial at the beginning of the game to save confusion over the controls.
  • Click the floor to move and/or click zone entrances or exits.
  • You can save your game and view your notebook by hovering your mouse over the top right-hand side of the screen. I would advise people to save every 10 minutes or so because of game-breaking bugs that are currently occurring. Do about 4 separate saves to cover your back and rotate through them.
General Tips:
  • Talk to everyone about everything.
  • Examine every object that needs examining - In this area you must examine objects multiple times!
  • When stuck, re-talk to people just incase a new dialogue option has opened up.
  • If you are still stuck, try using objects with other objects and/or with people.
  • If you are STILL stuck (and don't want to use the in-game hints), use this guide
About the Guide:

I am doing each zone individually, which I will then combine into an Episode guide at a later date. Once all three episodes are completed I will then compile everything into one giant guide.

I'm trying to make these walkthroughs as spoiler-free as possible while remaining useful. You will find the bare minimum amount of information here, but it should still help you out if you are stuck. Please get in touch if you find my descriptions far too vague to be useful and I will tweak them. I will also add pictures and/or videos if people request them.

I am always open to comments/suggestions/assistance - Just get in touch :)

I have finished all the searching I can do in the Medical Center. When I attempt to leave, I am attacked. Apparently this is the end of the game?

Came to see if guide had info on where he puts the second bullet after picking it up from the table, but alas, no. Phantom menace, the bullets just dissapeared!

Awesome guide! No spoilers at all! :D ..

I can`t open the door with the wire :(

There seem to be so many bugs in this game - honestly I have never before in my whole gamer's life encountered something like this....
I have been in the medical centre and talked to the doctor but I HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE BULLET from him. Now I am stuck and cannot go on because the doctor is gone and I cannot get into the medical centre anymore.
Is there a solution to this I just do not find or is it just another annoying (to say the least...) bug???

Thanks for the guide. The part after you get the slingshot where you "Proceed to Saloon and make him a plate of food from the buffet table", I think it should be recommended to Proceed to Saloon and talk to Lady Westmacott then make Constable Oliver a plate of food from the buffet table.

When you make the plate of food, you automatically go to the Forcastle and give the food to him so if you didn't speak with Lady Westmacott when you were there, you have to walk back the Saloon then back to the Forcastle.
