Watch the intro to see Joe & Ivy arriving at The Quiet Haven Hotel.

Click on the Quiet Haven Hotel to enter it. 

 

GROUND FLOOR RECEPTION AREA

Watch the exchange between the Receptionist and the angry guest who wants some cigarettes.  After the guest leaves, have a look around the area.  Read memo next to the door.  Pick up MENU from the table.  Use bell on the reception desk to summon the Receptionist.  Talk to Receptionist and work through all the dialogue.  You get ROOM KEY 101.  Enter the lift, and go to the First Floor. 

 

FIRST FLOOR HALLWAY

Look at the breakfast tray, and pick up TOAST from the floor.  Look at all the paintings on the wall.  Use ROOM KEY 101 to unlock door to Room 101.  Now enter the room.

Work through all the dialogue with Ivy.  You and Ivy argue, before going to sleep.  Ivy wants to end the marriage.  When you wake up next morning, leave the room. 

 

FIRST FLOOR HALLWAY

Walk down the corridor, to the staircase. 

 

STAIRCASE

Look at hole in the stairway.  Pick up RAT POISON.  Walk right to the Twilight Lounge. 

 

TWILIGHT LOUNGE

Look at everything in the room.  This is one creepy room!  Walk right into the Lounge.

Look at everything in the room.  This is even creepier than the last room!  Walk left, and continue left, until your back at the staircase. 

 

STAIRCASE

Walk downstairs, to the Dining Room. 

 

DINING ROOM

This must be the creepiest Dining Room you’ve ever seen - all the other guests are dead!  The Receptionist greets you as if nothing was wrong.  Work through all the dialogue with her.  She gives you a LETTER from Ivy, before she leaves.  In your Inventory, read the LETTER - it’s an emotional plea from Ivy.  When you’re ready, walk left to Ground Floor Reception Area. 

 

GROUND FLOOR RECEPTION AREA

Look at the cat.  This is the cat that eats keys, so give your ROOM KEY 101 to the cat.  You now catch the CAT.  Use the lift, and go up to the First Floor. 

 

FIRST FLOOR HALLWAY

Oh no!  The hallway is all bloody!  You know your wife is in Room 102, so knock on the door.  No answer!  Enter Room 101 - your room. 

 

ROOM 101

The maid has been in, and tidied the room as normal.  Well… except for that trail of blood.  Look at breakfast tray on Ivy’s bed, and take the LARGE KNIFE.  Now here’s your first act of violence.  In your Inventory, use LARGE KNIFE on the cat to cut it open.  Poor cat!  You find ROOM KEY 101 and ROOM KEY 102 inside the cat.  Now leave the room. 

 

FIRST FLOOR HALLWAY

SAVE YOUR GAME HERE.  Use ROOM KEY 102 on Room 102 Door to unlock it, then enter Room 102. 

 

ROOM 102

This room is like a different reality.  Look around the room.  Talk to Sophie, and work through all the dialogue with her.  She tells you to kill all 4 memories of Sophie, starting with her.  When conversation is over, leave the room.

ROOM 201

Look at books in the book cabinet, and take the GLASS BOWL from on top of the book cabinet.  Look at the electric chair.  Look at the ECG Machine.  Talk to Doctor Z and work through all the dialogue.  He tells you how to kill someone painlessly (remember little Sophie?), and he gives you the CELLAR KEY.  He also asks you for a favour, but he won’t tell you what that favour is.  Look at mannequin in the left corner of the room, and take SYRINGE from the mannequin.  Now leave the room. 

 

SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY

Enter lift on the left, and go to the Third Floor. 

 

THIRD FLOOR HALLWAY

Pick up SAW from the floor.  Look at body leaning against the wall.  Enter Room Where She Was Rejected on the left.

THIRD FLOOR HALLWAY

Enter Room Where She Died on the right. 

 

ROOM WHERE SHE DIED

SAVE YOUR GAME HERE.  Look at all the versions of Sophie.  The poor woman is so depressed!  Look at Sophie on the right, and note that she’s still alive, but in a lot of pain.  Take SHOTGUN from the floor.  Read the diary to get an insight into Sophie’s self-hatred.  Pick up the TORN OUT PAGE from the floor.  In your Inventory, it  becomes a RECIPE.  Read the RECIPE, and when you’re ready, leave the room. 

 

THIRD FLOOR HALLWAY

Use the lift, and go to the Fourth Floor. 

 

FOURTH FLOOR HALLWAY

SAVE YOUR GAME HERE.  Notice that some of the doors are on the ceiling!  Bizarre!  Now enter Room 401.

CELLAR - LOWER LEVEL

Look at the bottles of chemicals on the left.  This is what you’ll use to kill little Sophie with.  But which chemical should you pick - red or blue?  Well, the blue chemical will cause terrible pain and suffering when injected, so let’s not take that one.  Use SYRINGE with bottle of red chemical to get SYRINGE WITH RED LIQUID.  Now look at body on the centre table to get a close-up.  Creepy, isn’t it?  Remove the loose skin on the forehead, so you can see his brain.  This must be the favour that Doctor Z asked you about.  Use BOWL FULL OF ICE on the newly-exposed brain, so you can transport it safely (shudder!!!).  Now exit the close-up.  Look at the patient’s file on the table next to the body to find out that this is John Wilson, AKA The Devonshire Axeman who brutally murdered several people.  Pull Gas Control Switch on wall on the right.  Now climb up the rope, back to the main Cellar room.

GUARDHOUSE

Look around the room.  Read the Notice Board to learn how to operate the Main Gate.  Unfortunately you need 2 people!  Look at locker on the left, and open the locker.  Try to enter the locker, but you’re attacked by some kind of zombie, and loose consciousness.  When you wake up, you’re locked in a coffin. 

 

COFFIN

Talk to the corpses, and work through all the dialogue.  When you get the choice, choose to WAIT (don’t pick up the gun).  Now we meet Agnes - you’ll be playing as her for a while…
