The following scripts are a verbatim record of what appears under the Summary screen in the game. The journal only covers up to chapter 9 although the game has 10 chapters total. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 1 ~~~~~~~ The name’s Kyle Hyde. I used to be a New York cop, but three years ago I gave up my badge and became a salesman with a joint called Red Crown. I use the gig to search for a man named Bradley. Bradley was undercover, investigating a crime syndicate known as Nile, when he sold us out. I found him, put a bullet in him, and saw him sink into the Hudson. Now he’s missing. But back to the present. It's December 28, 1979, and my boss, Ed, told me to get my butt to a dive called Hotel Dusk. I help Ed with a side business, which is finding things that don't want to be found. I arrive, check in, and get the key to Room 215. A guy named Dunning Smith, the owner, tells me that 215 grants wishes. I also learn that a guest with my name stayed in the hotel a little while back. On the way to my room, I meet a kid named Melissa. She tricks me into solving a jigsaw puzzle for her, but once it's done she throws it down. I make her pick 'em up, but she forgets one. I get to Room 215 and take a breather. But trouble won't leave me be and I break my key trying to open my suitcase. I have to pay up front, so I need to get the thing open and find my cash. Ed's package shows and the bellhop brings it up. Bellhop turns out to be a street rat I know by the name of Louie DeNonno. Says he's clean now, but I've got a hunch there's more going on there. Louie brought me the wrong package, so I head for the front desk to straighten things out. Near the front desk, I see a girl I passed coming here. Name's Mila, and she's wearing Bradley's bracelet. Guy named Jeff in 213 gave Mila a lift. Problem is, Mila's got no luggage and she's a mute. Rosa, the maid, feels sorry for her and takes her under her large wing. A guy named Summer calls the front desk and tells them he has my package. He drops it by my room, and after a lot of hand-wringing and fifty-cent words, I finally get the stuff Ed sent me. Inside the box is a list of items I'm supposed to find and some new products. The items are a small red box and a men's magazine. I give Rachel a buzz and tell her I got the goods, then I go to work. Chapter 2 ~~~~~~~ I hear whistling in the linen room and catch Louie slacking. He tells me a hotel ghost story, that lost and found stuff is kept in Dunning's office, and that his pal Danny got iced three years ago. After Louie heads back to work, I toss the linen room and find one of the items I'm looking for: the men's magazine. While Dunning's out of the office, I wander in and confirm that a Kyle Hyde stayed in Room 217 six months ago. I also get a file cabinet open and find the small red box that was on my wish list. I'm feeling good about finding the items on the order sheet, but my mood sours when Ed calls. He tells me that when Louie's pal Danny got killed, Nile money went missing...and now Nile wants Louie. I press Louie about Danny's murder and learn more than I'd bargained for. Seems Bradley was using Danny to try and steal a painting from Nile's warehouse. After he spills his guts, Louie offers to help me search for Bradley. Thing is, I want answers, and Louie wants blood. Bad things are in the air... I can feel it. Chapter 3 ~~~~~~~ On the way to dinner, I catch Melissa's old man, Kevin, giving her an earful. Guy's some kind of sawbones, and he seems real worried that Melissa said something about his missing wife. Louie's playing host at the restaurant entrance. He tells me that Room 217, where the other me was, has been empty for six months. I ask him to lift the room key for me, then go to dinner. Before I can get inside, I run into Iris from 216. She says that Melissa smacked her with a rag doll. When I get inside, I find the doll on a chair and take it. When I finish stuffing my face with Rosa's home cooking, Summer shows. He asks if there was a bookmark in the package Louie brought. Then Rosa tells me that he's actually a best-selling novelist. After dinner, Louie shows me a fountain pen he found. The words "To Alan, with love" are engraved on it, but there's no one named Alan in this place. I take the doll up to 219 and give it to Melissa, who makes me be her puzzle patsy again. Seems the puzzle's a gift from her missing mom, and she left a good-bye message on the back of it. I search the box in my room and find Summer's missing bookmark with an angel picture on it. I take it to Summer and learn it shows the Angel Opening a Door, which was painted by a cat called Osterzone. More problems with Melissa. She and the old man get into it, and she runs to Room 218. Problem is, the room's got no power, and she gets locked in. I fix the switchboard and get her out in one piece. Melissa says her folks fought like cats in the rain, and that's why her mom split. Kid seems pretty torn up about the whole thing, and I guess I can't blame her. Chapter 4 ~~~~~~~ After I get the key to 217 from Louie, I go in and give it the once-over. I find Bradley's ligther and a photo of a man and a young girl. Now I've got proof that Bradley really was here. I return to 215 and find the floor soaked. I check the bathroom and discover a plastic bag full of loot in the toilet tank. No way it got there by magic, so that's one more problem. I head to the front desk and find Jeff telling Dunning he's been robbed. Punk demands that the old man search every guest's belongings. From my end, it sounds like he's missing some cash. Rosa waylays me and gets me to help her secure Summer's autograph. I take her book to Summer and learn that he's lost his fountain pen. I show him the pen Louie found, and he says it's his. I notice a passage from Summer's book is identical to what was written in his old notebook. Then Rosa tells me that Summer's real name isn't Alan. I decide that we need to have another chat. Summer folds like a card table and tells me that his debut novel was stolen from a friend of his named Alan. Before he went missing, Alan told Summer that Hotel Dusk was special to him. Chapter 5 ~~~~~~~ I talk to Rachel, and she gives me the goods on Osterzone. She also tells me that Angel Opening a Door was swiped from a Manhattan art museum three years ago. I drop by Rosa's room and use my notebook to have a chat with Mila. She tells me that her old man's name is Robert Evans, and that the bracelet she's wearing was a gift from him. Melissa comes calling and asks me to fix her doll. While I play Betsy Ross, she tells me that Jeff was in my room. He was also in the linen room, and when I check it out, I find a hidden pistol. To get the skinny on Jeff, I team up with Louie and have him lure the punk out of his room. While he's distracted, I go into his room and take a buzz through his things. I find Jeff's student ID card, which is how I learn his last name's actually Damon. I confront the kid, but he's harder than I thought, and won't crack about hiding the cash in my john. I remember a story in the newspaper about a Beverly Hills lawyer whose home was ransacked. It said the thieves made off with cash and a piece. With that info in place, I decide to question Jeff again. Jeff comes clean and admits hiding the loot in my room. He also tells me that his old man's a crooked lawyer working for Nile. He took the stuff so he could get arrested and spill his family secrets. Chapter 6 ~~~~~~~ I set Jeff straight and head to the bar to join Louie for a belt. We get to talking about the Kyle who was here six months back, and Louie says both he and Rosa had the day off when he was here. Helen comes into the bar and we share a round. She shows me a coin trick, and I learn she used to be a magician. I also find out that she's stayed here twice in the last twenty years. I leave the bar and bump into Rosa, who asks me to run around the hotel and fetch a label off a bottle of wine. Seems that Helen wants to keep the thing as some kind of memento. As a favor to Rosa, I peel the label off of Helen's bottle and bring it to her. I press Helen about her previous stays here, and she opens up and tells me all about her past. Seems Helen spent her youth dreaming of the spotlight. After she had a kid, she abandoned him to make it as a magician. After regret set in, she bumped into him here twenty years ago. Helen learned that her son wanted to be a writer, so she gave him an engraved fountain pen. Turns out that her son is Alan Parker, the guy whose book Summer stole. Chapter 7 ~~~~~~~ I'm still in the bar when Summer rolls in and tells me that he thinks Iris is really an up-and-coming actress named Cecily Lee. I leave the bar and run into Melissa, who's looking for her old man. Melissa tells me she didn't get a Christmas tree this year, so I dig a tree out of storage and decorate it for her. Mila and Louie swing by, and we have ourselves a belated Christmas shindig. Melissa conks out, so I get Louie to take her back to her room. Mila and I keep talking, and I find out that her father owned an art gallery called Gallery May. Seems that Mila came here looking for him. I meet Kevin in the lobby and tell him to go find his kid, but the good doctor is three sheets to the wind. I return to the bar, where Louie tells me the doc was talking about Gallery May with Iris. I'm curious about the gallery, so I find Iris and ask about it. I learn that a friend of hers used to work there. Then, in a panic, she tells me that someone took an envelope from her suitcase. I want to know what's in the envelope, so I tell Iris I'll shake the trees and see what falls out. I find Kevin trying to sober up. I wave away the fumes and ask him some questions. He's belligerent, but he eventually tells me why his wife left him. Seems he screwed up and got sued for malpractice. Grace somehow came up with the money to settle the suit, but wouldn't tell Kevin where she got it. With all the trust gone, they started fighting all the time, and she eventually hit the road. Kevin also tells me that Grace worked at Gallery May before they were married, and that she stayed at Hotel Dusk two years ago. Chapter 8 ~~~~~~~ After I ask Ed to look into Robert Evans and Gallery May, I find Iris's stolen envelope in a utility closet trash can. I also find a cassette tape that was in the envelope. I borrow Louie's casette deck and listen to the tape. It's some sort of shady deal recorded on the sly. I don't know why Iris has this, and I decide to press the dame for more details. I press the right buttons and Iris comes clean. She tells me that Grace sent her the tape and told her to come to Hotel Dusk if she didn't hear from her by Christmas. Seems Iris and Grace are sisters who were separated when they were still kids. Now Grace is on the lam, and Iris is looking for her. Apparently, she's supposed to give the tape to a man who painted the angel. Louie and I have an impromptu bowling match, and he ends up breaking a potted plant. But that turns into a piece of good news, because we find the wine cellar key inside. Rosa hears about Mila's missing father, and thinks it's Dunning. She tells Mila she knows her father, but turns out she's wrong. Her mistake reveals that Dunning has a daughter of his own. After all that, Ed rings up and lets me know that Robert Evans closed up Gallery May seven years ago and vanished off the face of the earth. Chapter 9 ~~~~~~~ Something Rosa said got me interested, and I take a look at all the apple paintings in the hotel. I discover that a letter of the alphabet is hidden in each one. There are five apple paintings in all. Rosa tells me that the last one's locked in Room 111. She gets me in to take a look, and I figure out the secret code hidden in the paintings. I arrange the letters in the paintings and spell the name Jenny. That name and Room 111 makes Mila remember something, and she faints dead away. I use mouth-to-mouth and revive Mila, and she comes around and starts talking. Who knew? Mila finds her voice and tells us how she came to the hotel ten years ago with her old man. She says she and Jenny were playing in Room 111 when a goon came in and took Jenny away. Kevin sees Mila leaving 111 and tells me that until six months ago she was a patient at his hospital. Seems she was in a coma for ten years, and her recovery is some kind of miracle. Doc then tells me that Mila's old man stopped coming to see her right before she woke up. Also tells me that a guy named Kyle Hyde came to see her. I talk to Ed, and he tells me that ten years ago Robert Evans owned the Dusk. Then seven years back Evans passed the title for the hotel on to Dunning. I'm still processing this new info when Rosa pops in to say that Dunning ran off with Mila. I check out Dunning's room, but no one's there. I do find some interesting things, though. Dunning had a collection of birthday cards addressed to Jenny, an old hotel brochure, and a newspaper article on Osterzone. I head to the wine cellar to meet up with Louie, but I find him unconscious on the ground. When I go to check on him, someone comes up from behind and puts my lights out. --End-- Special Thanks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is the section where I express my gratitude.
