Great work Will put a link up in my trophy guide

Also, you're right about the Alarm puzzle solution, it's kinda hard on the eyes. (Especially after doing it 4 times :P) I'll change it in the guide to.

To everyone: If you follow this walkthrough as quickly as possible, you will complete the game in approximately 1h30m with an A rank and 100% complete!

Thanks again for your help k1ll1ng5pr33, and thanks to Orusaka for the sliding puzzle solutions.

I was able to upload the alarm video from my phone to flickr, but can't find a way to post it without it pointing back to my flickr account. If anyone is willing to create a youtube video, I'll put that up.

I plan to do one more playthrough to make sure the walkthrough is correct, and maybe streamline it, but I have an easter supper to go to soon, so maybe over the weekend.

Thanks. I was hoping to streamline it a bit, trim some fat. Like the compares that don't need to be in there, and to move the two items at the end in more convenient places.

I was reading your guide, excellent work. Very detailed! I have a few minor suggestions, will post it there.

Maybe a small tip. Give the found items and puzzles a different color?

Also, any tips and extra info would be greatly appreciated!

Ohyeah, about the newspaper puzzle, the one that gives you the code for Sonia's cellphone, I'm not to sure, but you might want to add that they should complete this puzzle before immediatly going for the phone and enter the code. Else you might just miss a puzzle.

Hey guys, I know this is a dumb question, but I just started the game and I'm having some issues picking up the first newspaper. Found out it costs $1.37, but apparently I only found one dollar in the machine, how do I pick up the other 37 cents? Can't find them anywhere and the walkthrough doesn't mention it. Thanks
