Fausts Alptraum Walkthrough
By FebruaryRed
This is a step-by-step walkthrough to the game. It will have all the items, as well as how to get the endings.
Things to know:
- Do watch out for the rats as they make your light dimmer
- You can't die (excepting key events) and getting attacked or losing your light will put you back into My Room.
- You do not have to follow this guide to the letter, some steps can be skipped.
-The names of the rooms are based on the maps.
- If you don't want to read this whole guide, there is an index at the bottom. The Index has maps, puzzles, and ending tags. Use those to search the guide.
-There are four endings.

Well, the beginning is pretty self-explanatory, but here:

Go through the door underneath the stairs and talk to the demon.

Does anyone know where the Old diary III was?
Simona Marra May 27 @ 11:03am 
@turret I've found "puss in boots V" while i was doing the hidden ending, after the first dialogue with M. Near the door
a Jul 29, 2018 @ 8:31pm 
You must look at the gem puzzle once before the girl can take the gem from the painting.

It's the case for some items, for instance if you try to wear Marguriette's Dress before you interact with the 3 Pigs, she will think it looks too precious and won't wear it.
Turret (RUS) Jun 26, 2018 @ 10:23pm 
Thank you for your guide. I think this is very useful, especially if you pass the game for the first time. But I had a problem with the "Puss in boots V". I couldn't find it in Margurerite's room. Maybe someone knows if a chance still to find? If so, where?
The Doctor Jun 25, 2018 @ 9:46am

In chapter 3 I did things a little out of order, and now the door to the imfirmary is gone
a May 27, 2018 @ 10:05pm 
@pchnorth Unfortunately you have to have at least one match, you probably have to restart the game. If you collect most of the matches you would have more than enough to spare for full brightness and sustain the occasional mouse attack, so don't skimp on checking drawers for chocolates and matches.
pchnorth May 27, 2018 @ 7:37pm 
please help i accidentially used my only match in the final chapter and apparently matches don't exist anymore, and the last time i saved was after i used my matc:steamsalty:
bloody_crisis Mar 30, 2018 @ 12:42am 
Can I add to this guide the amount of steps you need to take when crossing in the dark with the golem? (I wish we could just follow it instead and I'm not the only one annoyed by it a little, right?)
You'll need to take 4 or 5 steps to the right (depending if it's slow or fast with your pace)
3 steps down
2 steps right again
1 up, right, and up again.
3 right steps
4 steps up
3 right steps again
4 steps down
and finally 3 to the right to finally reach that door.
