Does anyone know if BF is going to post a WT for this game? I want to purchase the game, but won't unless there is a WT to get me out of jams I am not able to resolve on my own.

Where do I find the pliers to get the trident?

If you're stuck all you have to do is click on your map - all locations marked with a yellow dot still has a puzzle to be completed there. Check it often as places that are marked with a gray dot (nothing to do) can change to yellow in a minute! Better than a hint button, strategy guide or walkthrough! And you can jump to other locations! I absolutely love games with this feature!

Only have two more white circles left, but how do I move to white circle from yellow or gray one.

Hi silverwolf601! You cannot get to the white circles via the map. Those are locations that you haven't unlocked yet.

I can't see how the map helps. I still have to keep going from one place to another trying to find out how to do things. I don't know how to fix the sail on the yacht and have gone back and forth to all areas and still can't find anything.

How does the map make it any faster to get around?

Twiffer, if you go to the ruins and talk to the old man, there will be a puzzle on the ground for you to complete. Once you complete the puzzle, the pliers appear in it's place.

I have a question of my own for anyone who is almost done with the game.

I have found the sat phone, found the key, found the missing dial, and turned on the power.

When I try to input the settings, I choose the correct MHz and satellite, but every setting I enter for the second dial does nothing.

I was able to ALMOST complete this game without a walkthrough. For those who are waiting for one, it really is not that difficult without one.

This is a wonderful game.

Claypool, click on the location on your map you want to jump to, then click the jump button in the lower right (has two dots with an arrow between them). BAM! You're there!

Did you look at the yellow post-it on the bulletin board? It tells you what number to set the center dial to.

I can't find the trident. I have all the other items for the statues and the only "yellow" location is the one with all the statues. I have the pliers, which I guess you need once you know where the trident. is.
Any help?

I need help with the three rings on the door. I have found all of the circles but cannot figure out what to set them to.

Hi leimark! They correspond to the date on the passkey card you should have in your inventory - working inward, day, month, year.

I am at the beginning of the game. I cannot find the cask or the "marble chest". The clue points to the object but when I go there I get nothing.
