Year 1: How do I get to the Poisoning? After the introduction you are in Manny's office, where he's just received a message. Go to the message tube and use it to get the message. Then head to the garage elevator (that's the one on the left near Eva, the secretary) and down to the garage, you then realise that you are just in time to see the last car to the poisoning leave. Go to the top corner of the garage and use the door, he will knock on it, you will now meet Glottis. Then talk to him and be as nice as possible to him. When he says Im too big to drive or something like that say You're not too big. The cars are just to small. You will then get a work order, so you can go back upstairs. If you give it on Eva, she will try to get Don to sign it, but he won't. So go down the lift (opposite Eva) to the lobby, and go outside. Go round to the side of the building, and climb up rope. Go into the open window into Don's office, then use his computer, and change the answering machine to Ah, cripes Eva! Just sign it yourself, will ya? I'm busy! Then head back out the window, down the rope, into the building, and back to Eva. Use the work order on her, and you will now get permission for Glottis to carry out his modifications. Then sit back and enjoy the cut scene. When you get to The Land of the Living, use your scythe on the wriggling package. There will then be another cut scene, and you'll be back in the office hallway. How do I get a premium client? Head back to your office, and pick up the playing cards from the table on the left. Then, go to Eva's desk, and use the cards on her hole-punch. Head down to the lobby, where you'll be met by a pinky\purple demon moaning about the mail delivery system. So you need to head out to the street, and talk to the clown at the festival. Ask for a balloon and get a dead worm, repeat the conversation to get another. Dead worms are just balloons that havent been blown-up. The head back into the building, and into the packing room, which should be on the left of the screen. Use one of the dead worms on the red hose and one on the blue. Then head upstairs to your office and use each balloon on the mail delivery system and watch the prevailing chaos! Head to the mail message switching room (opposite the packing room). You must turn the bolt on the open door, and then talk to the demon. Ask him who would do such a thing and he will start whinging then leave. While youre in there dont forget to pickup the fire extinguisher. Leave the room, and then go back in. You will now be able to open the door, and use the playing card with holes in on the slot in the tube. You've now got your premium client. The problem is you cant get her a good package. Say that you will just go and sort this mess out and go to Dons office. Now say uh oh because youre in major trouble! How do I help the LSA? You start trapped in Glottis office but its not the end of the world! All you need to do is tell the guard that you intend to expose the DODs crooked ways. The guard will then take you away. You find out that the guard was Salvador, head of the LSA. Ask him what you have to do and then ask him if you should be his messenger and he will say no but he asks you to get some pigeon eggs. You should say, If I grab some pigeons from the roof, will you let me go? Then choose Im off and go and talk to Eva. She will tell you that you cant leave because they need your teeth for the computer. Go to the clown at the festival, and get a cat balloon animal. Then take some bread and go back up to the roof via the rope. When you're on the ledge, go through the window into Domino's office, go to his punching bag and hit it until the mouth-guard falls off, and then take it. Go over to his desk and open the drawer, take the glowing coral and then go back out the window. Go back to the rope and pick it up (make sure he is looking at the rope and not looking to climb down) then put it back down. Take rope to make a bridge. Use it to get to the next ledge and onto the roof. Go to the air vent thing, and then use the cat and the bread on it. Head over to the pigeon nest and pickup the eggs. When you have done this go back down to the street. Go to Glottis office, and then use the mouth-guard on the Fill-A-Dent machine, then use the mouth-guard while lookin at nothing this will make a perfect copy of Mannys teeth. Go back to the LSA and give the eggs to Salvador and the copy of your teeth to Eva. Where is Glottis' Heart? You are now in the Petrified Forest, and you meet Glottis, talk to him and he will rip out his heart and fall asleep. You will obviously need that, so head to the area of forest behind Glottis to find it. Pickup a bone from the pile of them and then use it on the web. Use your scythe on the web and the heart will go flying. Go back to Glottis, pick up the heart, and give it to him. Whats the Strange Machine in the Forest? After the short cut-scene, you will be in the Bonewagon with Glottis. Drive to the right hand side of the screen over to the strange machine this is a tree marrow extractor for the buildings in El Marrow. Go to the wheelbarrow, and push it backwards and forwards over the 4 wire things. Each of the four wires control one of the pumps on the tree marrow extractor, and you will need to synchronize the two pumps on either side of the machine to get it rocking backwards and forwards, the two on the left then the two on the right. The easiest way to do this is to block the middle two pumps, one at a time, the one on the left then the one on the right, and then unblock it just before the moving pump on that side of the tree is just about to pump. This is a little bit confusing\complicated but its obvious when youve got it right. This isnt quite enough to make the thing fall over but if you turn it off Glottis will climb up and unbalance the tree even more. While he's up there, turn it on then sit back and laugh! Glottis will add some hydraulics onto the car and youre on your way. Whats the area with all the exits? Drive back to where you first found Glottis and pickup the sign get back on the Bonewagon and drive into the area where there are loads of different exits that just come out in a different place in the same area. These have nothing to do with the problem; they are just there to confuse you. Get out of the Bonewagon and place the sign in the ground, it will spin round, then point in a certain direction. Pickup the sign and walk a little way in that direction. Then put it in the ground again. Repeat this process until a cave on the ground opens up. Go into the cave and the take the key from the sign, and head back to the clearing. What should I do with the flaming beavers? Get back in the Bonewagon, and go over the rocks that you couldnt get past before, lo and behold, now you can. Go to the door and open it, dont use the key. The beaversll chase you out first time but head back through the gate, and at the edge of the dam of bones pick up at least three bones. Go down the path to the left of the bridge, and a flaming beaver will come and sit on the rock above you. While facing the tar, pull out a bone and throw it. Get out your fire extinguisher quickly and when he jumps hold enter, you can use the left and right arrow keys to aim, this will get rid of his flames and make him drown. Repeat this until all the flaming beavers have drowned. Don't worry if you miss them because you there are loads more bones and the fire extinguisher doesnt run out. When all the beavers have drowned go back outside and unlock the gate, youre on your way again. What do I do in Rubacava? Go into the diner and talk to Celso (the cleaner) and ask him what hes doing here. He says that he is waiting for his wife. Say You must love her very much or something like that and then tell him that you will help him find her and then ask what she looked like. He will then give you a photo of her. Walk back outside and into the fog and you will hear Manny scream as he falls. This is the end of the game, because you have died. ONLY JOKING! You cant die - you are already dead. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Sorry about that joke! You are rescued by the sailor and start talking to him you can end your conversation by saying Well, don't let me interrupt your car talk Now you can give him the photo and he will tell you she sailed out of here with another man. Tell him you dont believe it and he will give you a copy of the Log Book. Now go back up into the diner and give it to Celso. This will take you onto Year 2 of the game.
