Inua Guide
By bearsbearsbears
This guide will provide a full walkthrough for Inua, in addition to the requirements for the four missable achievements.
My instructions to beat the chapter will be highly abridged and describe only what's strictly necessary.

General Tips:
  • The words you collect are called tokens. Not all of them are relevant to puzzles and primarily provide flavor. Some tokens are multipart and you need to interact with multiple objects or people to unlock them.
  • Actions committed in the past will affect the future, allowing you to
  • A lot of the fun of this game is hearing what everyone has to say. Part of why I'm listing out what needs to be done is so you know what you can avoid doing to keep the game from progressing, allowing you to see how everyone responds to a certain token.
  • Starting from Chapter 4, the game will allow you to jump between the present and two different pasts. For clarity's sake, I'll call the Franklin Expedition the past and the military excursion the 50's.
  • Once you complete a chapter, you can use the chapter select to play it again.
