Have you tried putting things on the sculpture?

Ooh, thanks a lot! I hadn't thought to try the

spill/pill
yet.

I've loved this story so far; the mechanics are intriguing and incredibly clever, and I can't wait to see how much public property I can deface once I get some of the other cool toys. Heheheh.


I actually think I worked out why that works:
Spoiler: show
The only three categories are liquid, smaller than a pebble, and Import Category 5 (consumable, non-botanical). I think it's mentioned at some point that the pill is small. The pill already fulfills the latter two categories, and having originated from the spill, is easily converted to the remaining category. It's actually the only thing you can win with; believe me, I've tried, but the game will always give you a category to fulfill that you can't carry out with your available inventory and tools.

Is it possible that someone can provide a list of

all the items that can be ambiguous at the t-inserter? I don't have any of the items mentioned in previous posts, and Brock won't let me leave.

Off the top of my head, you should always have access to

SEER AUTOMATON → STEER AUTOMATON / SETTER AUTOMATON
.

It is also possible to bypass this puzzle entirely by

b-removing Brock.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature.

I sincerely hope folks are still reading this thread! I have gotten through most (?) of the game without getting stuck, but now I am quite stuck, bouncing between the bureau, the bar, and the bus station.

Spoiler: show
My only goal is to "check the dead drop at the public convenience." I checked it, and it contains only ash. I tried to pick up the ash, now it is on the floor. So I went into the bureau. I can't get past the secretary because I don't have ID. So I went down the Long Street. I can't go further south on Long Street. I went into the hotel bar and made a jigsaw (the tool.) I have no idea what I'm supposed to do now. I can't make the ash turn into anything, I can't get to the University.

Some gentle hints would be appreciated!

Well, here I am, minutes later, replying to my own thread. I swear I had tried this before, but I want to post the solution to anyone who is stuck where I was!

Hint:
Spoiler: show
The ash can be transformed with an article in your possession.

Solution:
Spoiler: show
Use the restoration gel on the ash. Now you can go to the Antiques store!

From that point on it was quite straightforward.

Love this game, but hopelessly stuck trying to get the
Spoiler: show
anagramming gun in the bureau tools exhibit.

I made it to
Spoiler: show
the basement of the bureau and finding the odor (obviously an anagram for door) and the anagram bullets, but had to restore a previous game because I didn't have the anagramming gun. Then there was weirdness where I tried to load the piece, but it simply took me to a blinking cursor again- no message, no nothing. Bugs. How do I get that effing gun?

Why is there no walkthrough for this game available anywhere? After DAYS of trying to figure this out, I'm ready to throw in the towel. I'm now getting confused between all my saved iterations of the game, all because of that stupid display case. Someone put me out of my misery!

I have a pass and the invitation, but there's nothing to do in the Bureau but go south from Rotunda and get immediately arrested.


Gentle hints?


Gentle, getting more explicit:
Spoiler: show
You can't have anything that draws attention from the secretary.

Spoiler: show
You'll need to hide or transform anything incriminating.

Spoiler: show
Things like the monocle you can just put in Alex's backpack, from the cinema.

Spoiler: show
The plans don't fit in the backpack, and need to be transformed.


Um.. I keep getting arrested because:

Spoiler: show
my hair doesn't look that same as the photo


Would love some gentle-then=increasing-to-just-telling-me hints.

Thanks
