Runaway - A Road Adventure: Can I get a clue?
Hi, I’ve just started playing Runaway and I’m stuck at the beginning. I just want a vague clue.
I set up the fake body on the bed next to Gina, but I can’t figure out how I’m supposed to move her medical record to the other bed. It seems like the logical thing to do and is all my lousy imagination can come up with
From what I can tell I have all the items and have examined all the hotspots and I’ve also used pretty much all the items on all the hotspots. Now there’s nothing left except read a walk-through (which I hate) or get a vague clue.
As I said the only logical course of action I can foresee is moving the medical record to the other bed so the fake body will be identified as Gina if the mafia come calling.
That’s exactly what I thought I needed to do, yet I can’t seem to do anything at all with the records. Does swapping them involve something crazy and unrealistic?
no..i’m sorry i don’t know how to give you a hint here so i’ll ask you straight.
did you use the marker on the blank page?(i’m assuming you did)
did you try the fake record on the real?
if yes did you right click on both of them to trigger a thought from Bryan?(sometimes you need to right click on sth to make the character think about using it for his plan in order to do so,otherwise he won’t “know” what to do with it).
The blank page??
I’ve never seen a blank page… I don’t know how I can be missing it though I’ve been scowering these three screens for ages lol.
Tell you what , I’m gonna go and have another look around, see if I can find this blank page.
I’ll let you know if I can’t find it
That’s exactly the thought I had in the storeroom, find a blank form and fill it in. I thought it would be as simple as looking in the filing cabinet or something. It seems that it’s not. Which is good, I like a challenging game.
Oh man, that damn tiny piece of paper sticking out of the filing cabinet! Trust me to miss it lol!
Could I get another clue, I’m stuck… again… immediately after the last bit
I have to wake Gina up, and there is only two things I can think of on how to do it. I either need to sift through the medicine in the storeroom, find some amphetamines and shoot her up or, it’s something to do with splashing water on her face.
I can fill the broken cup up with water in the bathroom but it’s empty by the time I get to Gina.
Am I on the right track?
You are not a Doctor you need to learn more about the medication she has taken.
Maybe you need a reference book.
Then you need to fiddle with the fire protection system.
An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.
I spent ages trying to fix up that cup as well. Another hint for this game in case you didnt figure it out yet - if you look at certain places you will be told that there is nothing of interest there. But if the situation changes and you look again, you might find something you need. So relook at everything whenever you are stuck.
Thanks guys, I didn’t re-examine that book because I already did a few times before. That’s a useful tip Siddhi, thanks.
You know what, I think I’m a bit outmatched by this game. I’m stuck again, trying to get the fire protection system to spray the water. If I have to ask for help one more time I think it might put me off this game
OMG how the hell did I never once notice that fire sprinkler!? It’s been right there in front of clueless face the whole time!
I want to punch myself hard.
I remember being quite frustrated with the pixel hunting in this game. Might be one of the reasons I never really liked it so much. Okay game with a few good jokes, unlikable characters and the only vaguely interesting thing about the whole game is done in one chapter I think.
Though I actually finished the first one which is more than what’s to say about the second . I think I might give the third a chance once I can grab it under 5€.
