Old school, Loved it, Thanks Selfdefiant

Only got the jumping crystal after I had everything else but it made placing the gems in different rooms a lot easier :)

Where to use glove ?

Purple gem using hammer in T

Child of Light

The peg box you must hit every single peg
The small ones are flush with the box and the large are hit only once

And found the silver key - thank you Child of Light!

The other dial box hint is in the safe

I just can't seem to get that box in T

Anja wrote it at 8:23 (dial box)

Hint for dial box was in safe in D

Annnnd...out. Great game!

Wow! I just sat down at my computer with my Christmas-gift SSSG mug and there's a new SSSG! What could be better than that?

Nice roaring fire SD!!

Placed all gems and out!

Thank you Selfdefiant!!!!

That was GREAT!!! Thanks, SD!

And thanks Anja for dial clue in safe!

Feeling stupid.
I put all the gems in the slots but i am still in, where is the exit ?

@Zazie: From start scene down - where you found the purple key with flashlight

Thanks RSA for green gloop hint

Thanks again Anja, i did it lol....

Great game, thx SD !!

Help needed please for safe in D.

The combination is at the top of one of the pages in the book you picked up

Turn the dial left to the first number then right and left again

@yvonne: Have you seen the clou in the book?
21 - 9 - 32

I noticed the addresses in the phone book as Pinckneyville, IL. That's about an hour from where I live! if SD lived that close, I'd LOVE to meet them and go with them on a photoshoot to get pictures for their games! I love old buildings like this, and there's a TON of them near where I live!

Thanks for the peg box solution.
And I'm glad I could help with the silver key. Usually when I come over here is already a walk-through.

RSA Momma Cyndi and Anja(Stu) thank you for your help. X

How to solve the box in A?

Btw, what does "Ather" mean ?

There are 4 clock times in the book. Use only the first digit.
Then click in the middle.

@Morgan - I assumed it was Æther, which is what makes up the universe...but I could be wrong.

Lighter for FP is in P (didn't see that mentioned before)

Final gem placement:
Yellow - A
Green - G
Orange - D
Blue - K
Red - Q
White - N
Purple - R

Thanks @Selfdefiant & Happy New Year!

Sorry, can't read the numbers in O... Anyone willing to spoil?


The clue in the safe was three arrows

3 o'clock
11 o'clock
8 o'clock

(could be 3, 10 and 7 - I remember having to jiggle one of them)

The numbers in O are shown at the bottom of the screen in the comments

I think it was 151 and 59
(my scribble pad is a bit of a mess)

@Kate: You can see the numbers in the textbox.
151 and

Same here!

The clue I had from the safe was 9-11-7.

It seems that you can only get so many games onto one piece of note paper Anja :)

ok even with a flashlight I see no red key in A maybe i have a bug? or is it hidden do I have to move something? I have been clicking everywhere

The red key was to the bottom left side on the floor

TY RSA would have helped IF I had been looking for the silver ( and found that) and not the red key LOL

I often forget which key I'm looking for.
The silver is right up at the top under the box

Well that was as always very exciting.. still would like to know if you ( SD) use photos for these from abandoned asylums from around the world there are so many in Europe ??? If you like the pics in the games you can see many asylums at the site Urban Legend they are real places left to just fall apart with great stories to boot

out with no help. A couple of those keys were tough to find.

Thanks, selfdefiant!

Finally, another SD! I am so spoiled. Other games just don't compare! Thanks for the fix. It was a lot of fun.

Well, somehow today seems not to be an adequate gaming day for me...
had to peek for almost everything in the comments by making real silly boobs (LOL)...!
- I read safe code 21-9-35 (instead of 32!)... Doh!
- First arrow from code was pointing at 9 o'clock for me (instead of 3)... Drat!
- forgot about using flashlight or circle hint in book... Botheration!
Therefore: thx, L&G, for your hints!
& anyway, TVM, @Selfdefiant,
for another well-made game creation!
& yep, what does «ather» mean (didn't find it in my online dic LEO, LOL)...?

can't do the safe in D, I have the combination but it isn't working even if I start with left or right or the numbers backwards. Is there something i need to do inbetween positioning the dial?

@Sandman: I think I started with the left to 21, then right to 9, and then left again to 32.

i lov these games
but just wanted to kno
how to place gems in rooms
is there hint or
its trail and error
u hav to check all the rooms

raasti: There is not a hint about which rooms to place the gems. I think that's why selfdefiant came up with the crystal ball.

@Zoe ah thanks - I think I just needed to leave the view and start again and finally got it :)

okay very frustrated
can't find number for 5 digit code box

brin3m the code for five digit box is in N on the left side wall. the numbers you need are underlined in red.

I live bout 15 minutes from Pinckneyville Ill.

lol "The drawer is stuck. must be something important inside." funny, SD!

final score 231800.
the peg box and silver key gave me trouble.
thanks SD! another great game! and no orbs.

@SD -- another great game (although I needed lots of hints -- had the numbers right for the safe in D, but couldn't seem to get it until reading a hint on LRL).
I really liked the flashlight, but didn't like the comments box -- there was always an "X" on the screen!

Hope you guys are enjoying ur hols, we in this time zone hardly get to play a live game. wishing you all a very wonderful and peaceful new year. SD I love your games, but for the new year give us a sneaky guy game with its exotic locales.

help i cannot crack the safe combination

AWESOME STUFF, Self-Defiant!!! LOVED this game so much!!! Felt weird not collecting orbs, but glad there was still a crystal. Wish the crystal was available earlier in the game, but oh well :) Thanx for all the hints, Escapers! Definitely needed some help with some of those keys :)

What was the crystal ball supposed to do? Everytime I clicked it, it said: Click on a map tile to travel. Not the most helpful information.

The crystal allows you to travel anywhere you have been before. If (for example) you are in room A and you want to go to room Y then you just click on room Y on your map and you instantly go there. It just cuts down on the travel time.

i don't understand how set the circle in room A...

how can i open the Vault on safe D ???? what was the rotation of the VAULT?

I can't even open the vault, im stucked!

howw do i get the hammer in c.

where the hell is the map?

need help dont what to do with the gems?
