This spot is the main junction for the entire area. The path on your right leads toward the human heart. For the most direct route to the heart, begin at the main junction and then follow the corridor to the right. Each time you reach an intersection, take note of any objects or fixtures that you can use as landmarks. If its possible to turn right, then do it. If not, follow the path to the next intersection.

After you enter the house, approach the mirror in the living room area to begin the side quest. You must now adjust items in the room to match the reflection in the mirror.
Solve puzzle mirror:
There are five intractable objects in the room: a portrait, a dresser, a tv, a lamp, and a candle. When the quest starts, one the these objects doesnt match its reflection in the mirror. Once you activate the relevant object, the reflection changes and all of the room resets.
The mirror cycles through five reflections. During each step, you must activate the appropriate object:



Turn on the lamp
Open the dresser drawer

Turn on the tv
Rotate the portrait

Light the candle


If you did it correctly, the mirror will break revealing some hidden objects. End of quest (I would like to mention that if you dont break the mirror within a few minutes, an invisible monster comes in the room and hes a bitch. So try to get it done as quick as possible)

There are some bugs in this game....for me in the homeless mission there was no fishing rod in the spillway, just outside of the Pleasant River underground entrance. I was playing simultaneously with a friend and he found it on that special point. There are also some bugs like some doors are not opening in the underground or other locations. Just wanted to mention. For me it wasn't possible to get the 100% sidequest achievement because of the missing fishing rod!

This is pretty tricky. I can only help with the procedure on normal difficulty. There I had to put in 3 films in the projector in each film is somewhere a number written on the wall when you enter the film in the cinema (just walk through the screen). Each fimroll has a numer ( 1/3, 2/3, 3/3) so you get the correct postion of the number in the door code. Afterwards you can enter the code and go in the cutting room where you put all three films together. Now enter the complete film through the screen and get the handle, put in in a small box on a table and open the box in the attic.

No problem.

I'm pretty sure it's a sidequest... at least it's not where I'm supposed to go right now, and I doesn't seem like it has anything to do with the story.

When I first examined the projector it said something like it was missing the bulb... I found the three film reels but no matter what I try, I'm not able to use them to see the images.

Sorry for my english.

Here's a photo, of course it looks like shit. I took it with the phone camera so excuse the crappy quality.

shadow play side quest the four symbol part near the movie theater
hmm i didnt really have any problems with that one besides that fact that the side mission blows in general. if youve gotten all the previous fragments, theres really no pre req. to make it work. I cant see how your doing it to critique you, so my advice would be to keep trying and if that doesnt work, try reloading last save

hmm I wish I could see how your doing it. Not that theres any technique but i dunno I never really ran into a problem. You used the fragment piece to fill in the missing shape right? then rotate it until theres a mirror image. Yea i really dont know of a fix for that lol

How can the Bank sidequest be done in a no kill run? If you kill the monsters when they're twitching on the ground it counts towards your kills, but if you don't the bank doors never open.

it cant be done. Thats why Ive said do the no kill run on hard doing no side quests on your first run, second run do everything else

lol obviously not. Im using this gt to go through and get capture videos. I used my second to run through the game multiple times and figure everything out so I can do it correctly first time for capture. I officially played the game so much that I now hate it just so you guys can enjoy. Just use the guide and enjoy bro. I wont steer you wrong : D

I hadn't checked this guide until I hit that spot, that's why. :(

Would it be possible to do all sidequests except for the bank one, finish the game and then load the last save point before leaving for the final area and completing it?

Well I guess you could but you wont get the complete all side quest achievement just because you missed the bank quest. I mean, you could do it that way but its pretty risky because once you beat the bank, the game automatically autosaves, so if you dont mind reloading a checkpoint thats 2 hrs back for a 5G cheevo then yea I guess

Hi, I was using that guide (which is, by the way, amazing ^^) for "The Art collector" subquest and it was delightfully useful. I just wondered, while playing, is there a reason why, sometimes, the underground doors just seem to lock for no reason? Is there a precise patern or is it just the game that wasn't such the masterpiece I expected? lol

There are some bugs in this game....for me in the homeless mission there was no fishing rod in the spillway, just outside of the Pleasant River underground entrance. I was playing simultaneously with a friend and he found it on that special point. There are also some bugs like some doors are not opening in the underground or other locations. Just wanted to mention. For me it wasn't possible to get the 100% sidequest achievement because of the missing fishing rod!
Yeah, I am in the same boat. I have spent hours searching for the fishing rod, and then I found this post, which explains why I cannot find the fishing rod anywhere in the spillway even though I am playing on normal difficulty. The fishing rod just isn't there lol. Thanks for posting this, otherwise I would have wasted even more time searching for it.

I've found all the paintings, but I can't complete the achievement because the symbols in the crypt puzzle don't seem to match anything I've seen in the game including the painting puzzle.
What do I do? I followed your steps, but maybe you can elaborate for me. I'm playing on Normal.

"Unlocking crypt gate:
Easy:One tile has been activated; one tile is marked in blood. You must activate the marked tile and identify the two remaining pictographs from memory
Normal: No tiles have been activated; one tile is marked in blood. You must activate the marked tile and and identify the remaining pics from memory
Hard: There are no activated tiles or additional markings You must identify all four pictographs from memory

This one is pretty tricky on hard. Once youve completed it, the side quest is complete"

Do you know where the symbols originate from?

Are they from the paintings puzzle, or elsewhere?
If they are from the paintings puzzle, do you have to identify each painting as a symbol?
As you can hear, I'm very confused.

Don't ask me how, but I FIGURED IT OUT!!!
On normal, I pushed
1st row - tile on the left
2nd row - middle tile
3rd row - tile on the left and right

I hope this helps everyone out there.

On Shadow Play (Hard Puzzle), I put all the tokens on the respective symbols, but I can't get it to work. If possible, a detailed description of the proper token placement would be amazing.

Work on your spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. Also, most definitely don't center your forum posts. You should probably ditch the purple text as well.

Thanks! That looks much better. Since you're such a good sport, I do hope somebody helps you resolve your problem with the sidequests. I haven't completed them all myself, so I can't offer any advice there.

I think its a glitch where if you dont do them all on your first play through (minus digging up the past), on your second playthrough you need to do digging up the past as well as all the other ones for the achievement to pop

My Homeless quest also glitched. The weird thing is, I saw that Fishing Pole on my normal playthrough, before I knew I needed it, but when I went back after giving him the coat, it was gone.

It is possible to pick up the Fishing Pole, before you give the bum the coat?
