    +============ 2 - Introduction ============+
    Hello, and welcome to my FIRST EVER general walkthough! Yay!
    Right, well yeah. It's my second actual FAQ because I did an in-depth one in
    2005 on the "Driving Games" section of a great game on PS2 called Stuntman.
    Coincidentially, I completed the first version of that FAQ almost exactly
    one year ago (1 year, 4 days). Spooky. Arrrggghhh!!!
    Anyway. Amnesia, or Thomas M. Disch's Amnesia if you like saying the full name,
    is a text adventure game made by Cognetics Corporation, written by the writer
    Thomas M. Disch, and programmed by Charles Kreitzberg and Kevin Bentley using
    the King Edward Adventure game authoring system. The game was acquired and
    produced by Don Daglow and published by EA in 1986 for the Commodore 64,
    Apple II and PC.
    It's a very immersive game in my opinion, and has the ironic and rich writing
    style of Thomas Disch. It's also, I think, one of the first ever sim games, in
    that you can run rampant through New York, begging, eating and sleeping.
    Well, this FAQ contains a walkthrough for the game, and will have a word list
    and Secrets section very soon.
    I'm never any good at ending intros. I always say "get to it!" and sound older
    than I actually am...
    Itchy. Tasty. That'll do.
    +============ 3 - Walkthrough ============+
    +=ROOM 1502=+
    Follow the instructions that came with the game and the on-screen instructions
    until you find yourself faced with the prompt:
    What YOU do is...
    At which point you should type in "get up".
    At this point, you'll be asked a few questions about your appearance. Whatever
    you type in, the appearance will be the opposite. So pick what you like. :)
    When you're done, you'll be given a brief description of the room.
    Now, your first job will be to find clothes. So that's what we'll do.
    Take the bible and the key by typing "take key" followed by "take bible".
    At this point type "wear sheet" and you will wear the sheet on your bed.
    Now you can either enter the bathroom or leave the room. In the bathroom is a
    shower, toilet and sink, all of which you can use if you like. There is also a
    towel if you would prefer to wear it. If not, just leave the room.
    When you try to, the phone will ring. Answer it. Choose what you want to say,
    it doesn't matter. After a while you'll be asked if you want to give the
    bellboy a tip; if you want, you can, again, it doesn't really matter. When
    you're done, leave the room.
    From here, keep heading east towards the elevators by typing "east" or just
    "e". When you reach them, type "UP". Read the little event and ignore the
    bellboy's warning; type "UP" again and you'll enter the elevator.
    In here, just type "PRESS PH".
    Enter the health club.
    Here, type "ENTER GUYS" and then enter the sauna. Read this long scene. When
    promptes about what you're repeating, type anything. When the jailer asks you
    the words, type anything, but typing "FOOD PLEASE" gives a slightly different
    outcome. Then type what you want until you come to in the massage room.
    When the man leaves, open the satchel and say "YES" when prompted.
    +=ROOM 1502=+
    Get undressed then wear the tux. Try to leave then answer the phone. Reply
    as you wish to the man and then leave the room.
    Say what you want then leave.
    Try to leave and say no three times, then yes once. You'll wake up and
    hallucinate. Eventually you can get up and leave.
    Don't hang around here too long or you'll have to give up your ring to the
    bellboy. Just watch the TV and then leave.
    +=NEW YORK=+
    Out here you'll be asked a question; if you get it wrong you cannot continue.
    Just use the street indexer that came with the game and you'll be fine. At
    this point you had better save the game, so just type "SAVE GAME" and follow
    the instructions. Also, make a note of the street you are on.
    From here you must roam around until you find a tenement. Make note of where
    it is. Enter it then enter the hall and the room on the left; go north twice
    and watch the scene, then go south again and sleep here. Whenever the game
    says that you are tired, return here to sleep. You should save here too. You 
    can also sleep on the grass at Central Park.
    When you leave, you will eventually come across a boy who will give you some
    equipment to clean windscreens. You now have two ways to make money; begging
    and cleaning cars. The former is easier but pays worse and can get you into
    trouble with the police. You need money to ride the subway and eat. When
    you are hungry, just roam around until you find a place to eat.
    When you have eaten and are not tired, examine the macthbook in your inventory
    and go to that address. Try to enter the club then talk to the person here.
    Now you should go back to the hotel you first woke up at. Enter it and ask the
    receptionist about the vault. Enter it and use the clues from the letter and
    the bible you picked up earlier to work out the password.
    If you can't figure it out, it's "WITH GOD". Take the disk here and leave.
    Eat, find the tenement, sleep and save.
