Art of Murder: Hunt for the Puppeteer - stuck in first area
I’m trying to play Hunt for the Puppeteer.
I cannot seem to leave the first game area. Spoiler tags from here just to be sure.
It didn’t seem to be too difficult, and I thought I was completely done in the first area, so I headed for the door. It kept saying I should go back and check out the room a bit more because the Inspector may have missed something, though. I did, a few times, and clicked and right-clicked everything that could possibly be highlighted. I also tried to photograph everything that could be highlighted. I clicked and right-clicked everything in my inventory, and tried to photograph everything in my inventory. Nothing new happens, and I’m stuck, unable to go to the hotel, unable to start any new conversation options with the officer.
After a while I consulted a walkthrough and checked if I missed anything: I haven’t. I then restarted the game entirely and followed several walkthroughs to the letter, and where the walkthroughs move on to the hotel, I’m still stuck in the ballet studio with the same line when I try to head out the door. I even tried reading through everything in the in-game journal because someone mentioned they could only move on after they had read it, but it changed nothing.
By this time I’m unsure whether I’m actually stuck, or whether I have some kind of technical issue. I’d be very glad if someone could help me resolve this, because even though the game came cheap in a bundle, I’d be pretty ****** off if I paid for something I can’t even play.
I got stuck there because
I hadn’t glued the fingerprint to an empty sheet of paper, just the tape wasn’t enough.
If it’s not that - which it might very well be - another round of try everything to everything should still do the trick.
Now playing: Testament of Sherlock Holmes
Next: Primordia, Cognition: ep3.
Now reading: Mikhail Bulkagov: Мастер и Маргарита
Recently finished: Alber Camus: L’étranger (again), William Gibson: Neuromancer, Herman Hesse: Steppenwolf
Oh, I’ll go try that right now.
I wonder why that wasn’t on the walkthroughs?
Although I see now that one of them does state “bag the print”, which didn’t make sense to me, and still doesn’t now, because I can’t actually bag it.
Oh, it’s working, thanks so much!
Of all the things I could fail to try…
