I am new to this forum and have been browsing through but haven't found a place to ask for/share hints.

I am currently a little stuck in the game and I need help! It's something so obvious I am wondering if it isn't a bug. Can I post here (with spoiler tags) or should I go somewhere else?

I moved this to the community help section. Go ahead and tell us your issue (in tags if it's spoilery) and we'll give you a nudge in the right direction. :)

OK as previously mentioned I am not sure if I am missing something obvious or I am having an issue interacting with certain characters as I have noticed clicking on the dialogue option doesn't always work.

 

My problem is

I loved this puzzle! Because it's one of the few times I've actually worked one out by myself.

 

You do sometimes need to adopt a "game puzzle" logic. Look at who is available to speak to. Notice anyone doing anything obviously different. Look at what is in your inventory.

Spoiler
And remember that game mechanics often require you to have examined something to flag the fact that your character has noticed it. It's not enough for you to see it on the screen, your character has to take note of it too.

 

Admittedly, this last point can be counter-intuitive at times. But in this particular case, if you just start by trying to

Spoiler
then without the need to flag seeing the
Spoiler
you could potentially start the whole
Spoiler
conversation without ever having seen it, so you'd be there going "WTF???". So you do need to "tell the game" about what you are seeing and thinking as a player.

 

Basically, look at everything all the time. Every hotspot, exhaust its comments until you hear them repeating. But this is part of the fun! I want to see and hear everything. So, if something is blocked then chances are you have not seen and heard everything.

 

I got that with Kian. I didn't notice he could examine the

Spoiler
. So I had the
Spoiler
but I reasoned that I must have missed something because the solution had to be there. So you go back and start the pixel-hunting! Number of pointless barrels I looked at, lol. But then I enjoy that too.

I definitely tried, but I didn't find a way to do it. ...Did I miss a way to do it...?

 

(Sorry to slightly necro this for a slight possibly OT, but now I'm curious.)

No way to get (or even ask for) a receipt. It seems that Zoe forgot entirely that she had to, lol.

Nope, no receipt option. :(

 

So everyone's Zoë is a total dunce. Oh, and of course, that is a fatal character flaw.

Well, that's annoying.  <_< I TRIED GODDAMMIT! No, seriously, I spent several minutes trying to figure out what the hell I was missing before finally assuming that it wasn't actually a thing.
