To get past the figure on the bridge:

Make sure you have (from earlier):
Spoiler: show
the glass jar from the bathroom


and that you’ve found (in this room):
Spoiler: show
the doll


Examine the thing you find here.

If you
Spoiler: show
turn it’s head and pull the string
,

The woman becomes interested.

For a full solution:

Spoiler: show
pull the string after turning the head until it mentions the glass jar you are carrying. Then give the jar to her.

To get past the second bridge:

You need to have brought the

Spoiler: show
flashlight


And emptied it.

You need to open up a path by

Spoiler: show
pushing the metal thing off the bridge and going down


You see something but can’t interact with it. But copying what you see,

Spoiler: show
eating spores lets you breathe underwater


But you can’t see!

You’ve seen a solution to this though.

In general, you need to use

Spoiler: show
the liquid in the pool and the material in the brazier


Explicitly,

Spoiler: show
put pool in flashlight. Put flakes in flashlight. (You May have to Take Material if you haven’t yet).


Now you can interact with the stuff in the other area. The correct movement verb is

Spoiler: show
Enter Bones, after going down the rope


There you can get what you need by

Spoiler: show
Hit Bones
.

But getting it back is another matter. A hint is available by

Spoiler: show
examining the metal thing


You can
Spoiler: show
pry teeth, put Bones in teeth, go up three times, and pull rope


And fixing the bridge is as easy as

Spoiler: show
Fix Bridge

Would you kindly consider build this in a invisiclues z5 format? There's is even a template for creating invisiclues in Inform 7?

Everything up to "fix bridge" works, but it still says the rope is too short to bridge the gap. Did I miss something?

I can look into it, but I"m definitely stopping at these two rooms (unless someone has a specific question). A walkthrough for a game this size is far beyond me!

Hello, friend! I seem to be stuck in my strait jacket (in Padded Cell). I would appreciate any tips!

Looking for some help on earlier rooms. This is my first (ever) interactive fiction so I'm sure I'm missing some of the basics. I am looking for help on "Railway Platform" on how to interact with the lockers & vending machine.

Hi! I'm really enjoying the game, but I'm stuck in a spot. I was wondering if anyone could provide help at the
Spoiler: show
meatpacking plant?
I've done the following:
Spoiler: show
moved the sheep, opened its guts, and read the flies to see a silhouette of a woman,
but I have no idea what to do with this to progress further. I've also
Spoiler: show
touched the jelly and tried various actions with it
all in vain. Thanks in advance!

I have a query.

How do you get out of the straight jacket?

and in the graveyard of Cragne manor, how do you get the thing in the grave?

I can't seem to work out the correct verb for either. It's doing my head in.

cheers
