Introduction:


Nikola Tesla has invited multiple guests to his secret island when tragedy occurs. You play as an invisible observer who controls time and can go anywhere to relive the events in order to solve the mystery of what happened.


Road Map:


You can be anywhere, listen to anyone and be at any time in the story. I strongly recommend avoiding this guide until you have done the whole story. Nothing is missable and you can easily fast forward and rewind time to clean up anything missed.


I suggest initially following the "main character" Gustaf Gustav for the entire story. Not only is this required for a trophy but it gives a good basic understanding of the story and what is going on. After the first playthrough as Gustaf you can really do anything but I would pick someone you are interested in and follow them. Repeat until you have followed everyone (you can fast forward scenes you've seen already) and that should unlock all of the story based trophies for each chapter. Almost nothing happens in the house when nobody is there so there is little need to be in empty rooms (see The Medium for the one exception).


At this point you should have a good understanding of what really happened and can safely use the guide for anything you are missing.


As you play feel free to pause time and look for collectibles.


Trophy Guide:

 

*SPOILERS* Most of the trophy names and descriptions will spoil major parts of the game. I've tried to obscure things as much as possible but consider playing this without the guide until you are cleaning up the collectibles and miscellaneous trophies.

The mask is an homage to The Sexy Brutale which has similar gameplay. You will find it in Swan's room on the back wall to the right. Examine it to get the trophy.

The Medium - :bronze
Use the Spirit Radio

 

This trophy will unlock any time you "use" the Spirit Radio. There are three times when you can do this. You will want to do these in this order:

 

The Spirit Radio will activate (start flashing) when someone dies. After the seance in chapter 3 Flora will scream when finding Vanderberg. Stay in the sitting room with the Spirit Radio. Examine it when it starts flashing. Soon you will hear Tesla's voice telling you to listen again when God strikes a man down (Mundy). In chapter 4 stay in the same room and examine the Spirit Radio again when it flashes at Mundy's death. This time Tesla will say to listen again at his death. Go to chapter 0. The Spirit Radio is on the table in the sitting area next to Vanderberg's room. Examine it when Tesla is killed. This time he will tell you to meet him in the room in the theater. This will end chapter 0. Turn around and head out the door (not the exit). To your right was a roped off room which should now be accessible. Enter this room to see the true ending and unlock The Room Service. The last newspaper article is also in this room.

 

*GLITCH WARNING* I did this without a guide and listened to the chapter 0 message first. It started to play the first message and got cut off. This caused the other messages to not play. I quit out of the game and returned and was able to get the first two messages to play but couldn't get the third to play which meant the door would not open. I kept retrying over and over again and after the 4th or 5th attempt it finally worked for me. Fast Forward may also affect this trophy but you should be safe if you return to normal time immediately when the Spirit Radio starts flashing.

The Cartographer - :silver
Explore the entire Island

 

This should come naturally as you follow every character. Certain rooms are not accessible until you follow a character into them so you can't get this immediately. If you somehow don't have it after you've seen all the scenes then pause time and go into every room and every part of the island.

The Shadow - :silver

You don't have to be following him the entire game but do need to be nearby.

The Collector - :silver
Collect all the clues

 

There are 19 clues that show up multiple times throughout the game. They are objects you can examine at any time. You will see a magnifying glass icon when you first examine each clue. I will try and list the earliest you can see them, but there are other times and places for almost every clue. You can track your progress in the theater on the desk to your right.

 

1) Lever handle - This is on the floor near Tesla's body for the majority of the game.
2) Spirit radio - This starts on some drawers on the right side of Vanderbergs room. Vanderberg and Mundy both carry it around during the game and later on it's found sitting on the table in the sitting room to the left of the main entrance, across from the library.
3) Phone - This in on the left side of the dining room for the entire game.
4) Gustav's pistol - Gustav pulls this out multiple times throughout the story.
5) Tesla's pistol - This is lying near Tesla's body and Gustav gives it to Flora.
6) Whiskey bottle - This is the bottle Vanderberg is drinking from in his room at the beginning of the game.
7) Umbrella - This is Gustav's umbrella. He has it at the docks and it ends up on the roof at the end of the game.
8) Book of the Occult - This is in the library on the shelf across from the stairs initially but is easier to find once Edison reads it early on and later sets it on the desk to the right of the chess robot.
9) Passport - This shows up in chapter 4 when Mundy reads it and is on the floor outside of Bernhardt's room when he discards it.
10) Victor's will - Gustav will take this from Mundy early on in the dining room. For the rest of the game it will sit on the dining room table.
11) Tesla's will - You will only be able to find this in the short time between Swan getting it out of the hidden safe and Swan throwing it in the fireplace. This event takes place in Tesla's office at the beginning of chapter 2.
12) Burnt paper - This is the burnt paper Gustav pulls from the fireplace in Tesla's office near the end of chapter 2.
13) Letter opener - This is initially on the desk to the left of the chess robot. It will then stay in Vanderberg's possession for the rest of the game.
14) Steak knife - This is seen when Swan opens the fridge near the end of chapter 2 and later ends up in Bernhardt's possession.
15) Mundy's knife - Mundy has this knife in his boot throughout the game but for some reason it randomly disappears in some scenes. He also looks at it and pulls it on other characters.
16) Flora's locket - This is the locket Flora is wearing most of the game. In the beginning she trips and Gustav hands it back to her.
17) Edison's watch - Edison has this watch throughout the game. In chapter 1 he's asked for the time and this is the easiest time to examine it.
18) Vanderburg's watch - At beginning of chapter 3 Vanderberg shows this watch to Edison. Later in this chapter Edison uses this watch to give the time.
19) Poison bottle - This is the bottle Vanderberg is going to use to commit suicide. Later it is on the floor near the Tesla coil in the secret lab.

Thx for the guide. I really enjoyed the game.

 

maybe some things you can add.

 

numbers of scenes for each chapter.

 

chapter 1:

Spoiler

 

chapter 2:

Spoiler

 

chapter 3:

Spoiler

 

chapter 4:

Spoiler

 

clue 15: Mundy's knife: it's easier to take it when he follows Bernhardt to the roof in chapter 4, he holds it behind his back.

 

tesla diary 4 is easy to miss, it has the same color as the chest. 

Thanks, I thought about doing the scenes per chapter but that trophy came so easily I didn't think it was needed.  I'll add it though.

For the knife I was worried about spoilers but I guess the fact he has a knife is about as much a spoiler as anything else.

For the Sailor, the piano room is on the first floor of the house

 

 

Thank you for the guide :)
