An Abrupt Termination Of Contract – You then believe that you are a detective? One of the goriest, most enigmatic cases to fall into your lap is The Case of the Golden Idol. You can expect some extremely challenging brainteasers and intriguing story twists over the next few hours.
Fortunately, the game’s opening chapter does a fantastic job of easing you in. To be honest, it’s pretty frustrating to have to pixel-hunt through the game’s scenes to find terms, so we strongly advise playing with object highlights on. The game has begun without further ado.
Before giving you the right answers in an expandable section, we will give you hints and clues in these guides.
Exploring Mode: All Term Locations
Only 11 terms must be found in the first instance of the game; this makes it a pleasant, simple introduction to the game’s fundamentals. In Thinking Mode, you’ll use the words you encounter to complete all the blanks.
You can either click on the underlined words in text passages to learn a term or you can look at specific items and learn the term automatically. We’ll at least once specify where each term can be found in every guide we offer.
The underline will change to a dotted line as you grow familiar with a term.
|Albert||The note in the pocket of either man.|
|Horn||On the map in the pocket of the man being pushed off the cliff.|
You should select the Exploring/Thinking toggle option at the bottom of the screen after you have all the terms to see what puzzles we have to solve.
Identity-based mode of thinking
Fortunately, there are only two individuals to identify in this situation. We’ll check what’s in their pockets to determine this:
- The pusher’s pockets don’t hold a lot of valuables.
- The man being pushed has two hints in his pockets: a knife and a medication bottle.
Oberon Geller, one of the two males, is a doctor, as evidenced by the notes found in their pockets.
Albert Cloudsley is the man on the left, and Oberon Geller is the man on the right.
The terms entered into a scroll will always be there once you’ve filled it out completely and accurately. Then, if you require duplicates of those terms for other panels, you can drag them from those slots.
Thinking Mode: Camp Location
We must examine the map and the characteristics of the islands in the scene itself in order to determine where the camp is. The situation is nicely depicted in the panel itself, but you will need to frequently switch between Exploring and Thinking in order to refer to clues in future problems.
Look out to the horizon. In the distance, there are two land masses, one of which is larger than the other.
We can infer from the horizon that the camp is in Horn of Thumb.
Thinking Mode: The Series Of Events
The context clues in this case can help us arrive at a plausible explanation for how the scene we are seeing came to be.
Within one of the bags is the eponymous golden idol. Who is the bag likely to belong to given the contents, which include medical supplies?
The men’s pockets contain notes that give us a general idea of how the expedition’s loot should be divided. Does this assist in giving a reason?
You can proceed to the following case once you’ve answered this clue.
