Post Mortem - dead end?
Pretty early on in Post Mortem, I’m trying to get into Hellouin’s office. It seems I need lock picks. However I already used it earlier to enter room 505 - I couldn’t find anything to push the key through the keyhole with, so I just went ahead and picked the lock,
and the guy who gave it to me says he doesn’t have any more. Is there an alternative way or is this a dead end?
If you used the lock picks earlier, you should be able to pick up a pencil from the reception desk in the hotel if I recall correctly. Or you could use the talisman if you already have it. Note that you can not get both, since they serve the same purpose.
Thanks. That’s not exactly the case - I suspect that the pencil is the item I couldn’t find to get Gus to push the key through the keyhole, but in its stead a jackhammer magically appeared next to the out of order elevator.
I suspect that means the game, as a whole, has no dead ends.
