======== Newsgroups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.adventure Subject: Darkeye, not spoilers, but how to enjoy the game (walk through???) From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Jerry Levy) Date: Fri, 19 Jan 1996 06:01:42 GMT With this game you just have to stay at it, and at it, and at it. Remember you are living a nightmare so frustration is part of the pain. The game does seem to like a certain order of play as I found from starting over once or twice, infact I recommend starting over once you are thorughly confused and realize this is no longer a "game" it will allow you to concentrate more on the stories. I would recommend this in terms of order of play, not spoilers (remember to listen for the whispering voices...): 1) in the upstairs study, do the wine bottle for the carnival, soul jump first chance you get; 2) second time you hear the whispering in the house go back to the wine bottle and play through again w/o soul jumping. 3) Tell tale heart: First time through soul jump, 2nd time do not, go in through the cleaver both times. 4) Do the poem in the second floor Bedroom to the left, the Red Death in the basement, 5) Play Berniece(?) through the bird cage, and her cousin through the knife in the study. Enjoy, it is a great game! I would like to hear any thoughts about the ending from others who have seen it.
