1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


The Dig is an exceptionally atmospheric and masterful piece of work from one of
the grand masters of the graphical adventure genre: Lucasarts. In this game an
asteroid has been sighted near Earth and appears to be on a collision course.
Five members of a team fly up to the asteroid to investigate, but what they
find there is beyond any of their expectations. The asteroid is in fact a space
ship, which takes three of the crew billions of light years away from Earth to
a strange planet on the other side of the galaxy.

Commander Low and his team of two members: A reporter and an archaeologist,
must explore the planet and discover many of it's intriguing mysteries. It's
obvious that a lot of work has gone into making each new location and joy to
explore and each new mystery an exciting experience. The game never seems
boring or slow, and the various tension-increasing events (of which Brink seems
to play the main cause of most of them) that happen throughout the game make
this one of the Lucasart's most atmospheric and interesting games.

===============================================================================


SPACE
-----

The game starts in space, where three members of the exploration team: Brink,
Robbins and Commander Low are floating above the shuttle near the asteroid
Atilla. Select the Pen Ultimate from the inventory to get a close-up view.
Select the Comm button, select Miles and then select the Flying Pig to seperate
it from the shuttle. Click the flying pig and Low will move it down toward
quadrant 1 on the asteroid. Select the flying pig again and get the explosive
unit Alpha, explosive unit Beta, shovel and zero-g digger from inside.

Exit the view of the flying pig and move off the screen into space. Select
quadrant 2 on the asteroid and use the zero-g digger with the target surface.
Use explosive unit alpha with the dirt, then use the arming key on it. Exit
into space and select quadrant 3 of the asteroid. Use the shovel with the
boulder to remove it. Use explosive unit Beta with the surface, then use the
arming key on it. Exit into space and move left back toward the shuttle.

Select the Pen Ultimate, press the Comm button and select Borden. Select the
nuclear explosive icon and Borden will tell everyone to get back inside the
ship. A cutscene will then play where the shuttle flies away from the asteroid
as the explosive units are activated, which creates a tunnel in the surface.
After the cutscene, the three team members will float down into the tunnel,
where they discover that the odd projections on the walls aren't natural.

Push the metallic plate on the right and it will move to create a small shaft
that leads down into a large room in the middle of the asteroid. Use the zero-g
digger with the three odd projections on the left to reveal three more metallic
plates. Push all three of the metallic plates, then move down the dark tunnel
that was made by pushing the bottom-left plate. The team will float down the
tunnel into a massive room in the middle of the asteroid.

Move over to the pedestal at the other side of the room to see the four plates
that were pushed earlier. Get all four plates, then look at the square
indentations and put all four pieces into the diamond shape. The shape will
change itself into a triangle and the room will be filled with light, which
causes the asteroid to move away from Earth at an incredible speed. After a
long journey it lands on a small platform on a mysterious blue planet.


DAIS
----

The team land on the planet and remove their space suits, which are no longer
needed. After the conversation, walk east to the clearing to view the planet
surface. There are three locations that can be visited around the clearing, and
all are currently represented by '?' as they haven't been visited yet. Go to
the left location to arrive in an area with a large spacecraft wreck.


WRECK
-----

Enter the wreck and pull the hanging wire to display an image of a strange
winged creature, which flies around for a few seconds and then drops a yellow
rod on the floor. Open the chest and get the blue device from inside. Get the
wire and the engraved rod, then walk back outside and walk east to the
clearing. Walk to the top location to arrive in an area with three mounds of
dirt, where strange rat-like creatures scurry around.


GRAVE
-----

Use the shovel on the right grave to reveal a pile of bones below. Get the tusk
and the jaw bone, then exit the area and go to the far right '?' location.


DIRT RAMP
---------

Use the device to receive a signal which points to the small mound. Use the
shovel with the small mound, then get the bracelet and exit the area.


DAIS
----

The blue ghostly creature that was seen earlier in the wreck will appear and
float over a small hole at the right side of the platform. Use the shovel with
the small hole and Brink will walk over to investigate. He takes over the
digging and after a few seconds falls down the hole and is killed in the fall.
Low and Robbins climb down the hole and find themselves in a strange tunnel
under the surface of the planet known as the Nexus.


NEXUS
-----

Maggie decides to split up so that she can discover more information about the
planet, leaving Low on his own. Get the plate from the floor and continue to
walk left until you find a purple engraved rod on the floor. Get the rod, then
walk back to the right and walk south down the ramp opposite the dark tunnel.
Low will arrive in a big room with a control panel and a triangular button on
the left. Before the triangular button will work, we need to provide some
directions first. Look at the control panel to do this.

This strange looking panel has seven buttons on it. The buttons are unmarked,
but some testing will show us what they do. Start by clicking the left-middle,
top-right, middle, middle-right and bottom-right buttons to display five
different-coloured lights on the display: Purple, blue, red, green and yellow.
Pressing the top-left button will remove one of these lights, while pressing
the bottom-left button will remove all of them. To test out the directions
we've just entered, exit the display and use the triangular button on the left.

A diamond will descend and will move left, up, right, down and will then pause
to see if any objects below it can be collected. We can now work out that
purple is left, blue is up, green is right, yellow is down and red is collect.
Using this new information, use the control panel again, press the bottom-left
button and enter purple five times, the bottom-right button to enter yellow
twice and the small middle button to enter red once. Exit the panel and use the
triangular button to make the diamond pick up the displaced lens.

Look at the panel again and press the bottom-left button to delete the rows of
lights. Press the bottom-left button to enter purple five times, the top-right
button to enter blue five times and then the small middle button to enter red
once. Exit the panel and use the triangular button to make the diamond drop the
lens in the light beam below, which will restore power to the nexus. Remove the
panel on the slope and get the blue crystal from the empty slot, then walk back
up the spiral slope to return to the nexus.

Look at the panel near the door on the left to see four red triangles. Open the
inventory and use the examine icon on the purple engraved rod to see four
geometric shapes at the end of the rod. Remember these shapes, then exit the
view of the rod and click the four red triangles to put them in the same order
as the shapes on the rod. The door will open, so walk through it to walk down
to the tram station. After the brief conversation with Robbins, press the blue
button on the triangular object to call the blue, spherical tram. Walk inside
it and it will take Low to a new part of the planet.


MUSEUM SPIRE
------------

Walk down the steps and attempt to open the weakened door. Walk outside and go
up the slope. Move forward at the top of the slope to see another one of the
ghosts; this one hovers for a few seconds near the strange device at the edge
of the path. Look at the strange device and hold the green button to make a
light bridge from the spire (where we are) to the crystal that hovers above the
planet. If a light bridge doesn't appear, then exit the view of the device and
click on the lens to turn it until the light bridge button does work. Remember
to hold the mouse button down or the light bridge will not have time to form.

Exit the view of the panel and walk across the bright light to view all five of
the spires on this planet. Walk to the crystal form in the middle of all of the
spires and look at it, then walk back outside to return to the museum spire.
Walk through the triangular door and get the tablet from the wall. Get the
glowing crystals on the left, then continue left and go through the door to
find Maggie in the room filled with the alien technology, which she names the
library. Exit the library and get the red engraved rod from the path above,
then walk right and go through the door to exit the museum.

Walk down the slope and go left toward the tram, then use the tram to travel
back to the Nexus. Walk up the slope to the nexus and then walk right to find
Brink's body lying at the bottom of the slope that he fell down earlier. Use
the glowing crystals on Brink's body and he will be brought back to life,
though in a much stranger form than his original self. Walk right and use the
panel at the left side of the red door. Enter the shapes from the red engraved
rod, then walk through the door to arrive in the tram station.

Press the tram call button to attempt to call the tram, but nothing happens.
Walk back up the steps, go through the first open door on the left and use the
tram to return to the museum spire. Try to open the weakened door and Brink
will help to open it. The door opens to reveal a room with a pit of green life
crystals, where a ghost briefly appears and hovers above them in the form of a
skull. Brink takes this as a sign that the aliens of the planet want to share
the life crystals, but Low thinks that the crystals are dangerous.

Low takes four of the crystals automatically, but take two more as we will need
them for later on in the game. Get the canister on the floor, exit the room and
walk north up the path to go outside. Look at the fossil on the floor and note
the position of the bones. Exit the view of the fossil and walk down the path
toward the water. A turtle-like creature will climb out of the water only to be
swallowed by a massive sea monster, which spits out the remains of the turtle.
Brink will run off at this point to explore the planet on his own, so after Low
informs Robbins about this he decides to go on without him.

Look at the loose bones on the floor and arrange them in the same way as the
fossil structure we saw earlier. To do this, left click a piece to pick it up,
right click to rotate the piece and then left click again to drop the piece.
Exit the view after finishing the puzzle and use the canister with the dead
creature. Use a glowing crystal with the dead creature to bring it back to
life. It will be eaten by the large sea creature again, but this time will
explode underwater due to the canister.

Walk down the steps to enter the water to emerge in an underwater cave. Walk
north to the chamber and get the orange engraved rod and plate. Exit the cave,
swim through the water and walk left up the steps, then return to the tram
station on the left and use the tram. Walk north up the steps to the nexus and
use the first panel on the right. Enter the geometric shapes from the orange
engraved rod to open the door. Walk through the open door and press the tram
call button on the left, then use the tram to travel to the planetarium spire.


PLANETARIUM SPIRE
-----------------

Walk outside to view a long path leading up to the top of a cliff. Walk up this
path to see a large chasm, where water washes up to the top of the other side.
Wait until a rumble is heard, then click on the far side to float safely across
to the other side of the chasm. If you fall down, just climb back up the cliff
path and try again. Continue to climb up and adjust the lens at the left side
of the strange device. Continue using the strange device and holding the green
button to connect the light bridge until the lens is in the correct place.

Go right into the crevice and get the blue rod from the hole in the rock. Walk
back outside and go north to the plateau, where a strange rodent-like creature
will run off with an item that opens the door. Get the rod and pole. Low will
move the pole slightly to the right. Get the rib cage. Get the cover and the
dowel at the left side of the door. Use the dowel with the hole in the middle
of the circular structure. Get the pole and use it with the pin. Use the rib
cage with the hook, then the rod with the cage to make the trap.

Look at the hole nearest to the trap and the critter will run out to the right.
Move left and wait for the critter to appear at the right side of the circular
structures. Move right and the critter will be caught in the trap. Use the
bracelet with the critter, then get the trap to release the critter. Get the
rod from the floor, then walk left and use the shovel with the cave to widen
the entrance. Walk into the cave and use the device to get a signal from the
critter that ran into the cave wearing the bracelet.

Use the shovel with the tracker spot and get the machine part. Exit the cave,
walk right and use the machine part with the panel at the left side of the
door. Use the cover with the panel, then press the panel to open the door. Walk
through the door and get the green engraved rod from the floor, the twin
scepters and the plate. Use the gold scepter with the faint light on the
ceiling of the room to view planets.

Click the gold scepter on the lightest top-right part of the moon, then use the
silver scepter on the darkest, bottom-left corner of the moon. If you've done
this correctly, the door to the planetarium will close. Push the button to open
the door and exit the planetarium. Walk left to the clearing and walk across
the light bridge. Select the museum spire, walk down to return to the tram
station and use the tram to ride back to the nexus.


NEXUS
-----

Walk north into the dark tunnel after returning to the nexus and a short scene
will play where Low walks through to the area on the other side. After exiting
the tunnel, walk left along the path and press the button to open the right
door of the airlock. Walk into the airlock and press the green button on this
side twice, once to close the right door and once to open the left door. Walk
left through the open door to enter the command center.

Use the glowing panel in the middle of the room, then use the blue rod with the
hole to make two more sliding crystals appear. Select the black crystal so that
the tip goes white, then move each sliding crystal up until the tip gets even
whiter. When all three of the sliding crystals have been moved into the proper
places, the black crystal will turn blue. Restoring power to this crystal makes
the broken tram that we saw earlier now work.

Exit the view of the crystal and walk north to the airlock. Press the green
button twice to close the left door and open the right door, then walk right
and go through the dark tunnel to return to the nexus. Go through the second
open door on the right (the door is shaped like a star and was opened with the
red engraved rod) to return to the tram station with the now-functioning tram.
Press the tram call button and use the tram to travel to the tomb spire.


TOMB SPIRE
----------

Walk outside and walk up the path to the plateau. Use the shovel with the stone
plate and walk down the hole to enter the tomb. Use the blue crystal with the
hole to make lights appear. Walk north up the path to see another of the light
bridge devices. Use the strange device and move the lens until the button joins
the light bridge. Walk left down the path to the tram station.

Use the tram to travel back to the nexus. Walk up the steps to the nexus and
use the tusk with the first panel on the right. Use the wire with the panel,
then use the wire with the sparks. Enter the geometric shapes from the green
engraved rod and go through the open door to the partially ruined tram station.
The tram still works here though, so press the tram call button and use the
tram to ride to the map spire.


MAP SPIRE
---------

Walk north to the ledge and enter the cavern at the right side of the area. Go
right to the pit and north to the opening to arrive in a room with a panel. Use
the panel and enter the geometric shapes for the purple, red, orange and green
engraved rods. The purple rod will show a scene of the museum spire, the red
rod shows a scene of the tomb at the tomb spire, the orange rod shows a view of
the crack at the planetarium spire and the green rod shows some caves. After
viewing all four rods, walk through the opening to see a light bridge device.

Open the panel on the device and select it to view the insides of the machine.
Click the source three times so that the beam points to the bottom-left prism.
Click the bottom-left prism three times, the top-right prism once and the
top-left prism four times to fix the device. Adjust the lens and keep trying to
press the button the device until the light bridge is joined. Exit the view of
the device and walk across the light bridge, then select the tomb spire.


TOMB SPIRE
----------

Walk north to the edge and enter the tomb. Walk onto the tile with the "CC"
marking to find a loose stone. Use the rod with the loose stone, then walk
outside. Get the dirt at the left side of the tomb entrance to reveal a lens.
Light from the moon will shine onto it, making a statue rise up on the crypt in
the tomb. Low will return to the tomb automatically. Select the statue and it
will turn to dust when Low touches it.

Stand on the crypt to travel down to a secret tunnel at the bottom of the tomb.
Walk left and walk toward the right pile of loose bones to see a life crystal
fall out of the slot, making a vicious looking guard dog appear. Use a glowing
crystal on the left pile of loose bones and the dogs will attack each other.
Use the yellow engraved rod on the slot at the right side of the door, then
walk through the doorway to arrive in a room with a small pyramid.

Walk to the pyramid to see an alien corpse inside. Use the yellow engraved rod
on the panel to open the pyramid and use a glowing crystal on the alien corpse.
It will talk in a language which Low can't understand, so exit the conversation
menu. Low will contact Maggie to tell her what has happened, but as he does
this Maggie will be captured by a massive spider-like creature. Walk away from
the pyramid, go through the door and use the crypt to return to the tomb.

Walk outside, walk north up the path and go right to the cave interior to see
Bring working in the background. Use the flashlight with the bat creatures at
the top of the cave and they will fly into Brink, making him run away. Walk
north to the platform and get the crystal stash. Brink will return at this
point and Low will agree to give the crystals back as long as he helps to
rescue Maggie. Walk north to the cavern, left to the path and then walk along
the light bridge. Select the map spire.


MAP SPIRE
---------

Walk north to the map room, left to the pit and go through the doorway to enter
the chamber. Walk left to the nest to find Maggie tied up in the web of the
creature. Talk to Brink about the monster and Low will walk through to a pond
at the bottom of a waterfall. Walk to the falls source and push the rock to
divert the flow of the water. Climb down and walk right to the nest. Talk to
Brink about the grate and Maggie will open it when the monster gets near. After
the monster has been defeated, Brink will hit Low and take all of the crystals.

We'll get some more soon, but for now walk through the door on the left, then
go north to the ledge. Show the tablet to Robbins and she will reveal a secret
island on the water. Walk into the island opening and get the plate that is
floating above the end of the path. Walk through the door and go through the
opening, then walk right to the cavern. Brink will contact Low at this point to
say that his hand is trapped in a crevice near a waterfall. Go right to the
pit, north to the opening and north again through the next opening. Walk across
the light bridge and select the planetarium spire.


PLANETARIUM SPIRE
-----------------

Walk right to the crevice to see Brink with his hand stuck in the rock. Use the
jaw bone with Brink and Low will cut his hand off to release him from the rock.
Low will automatically go to the triangular panel in the nexus. Use all four
plates in the panel to open the final door in the nexus. Go through the door,
press the tram call button and use the tram to ride to the cathedral spire.


CATHEDRAL SPIRE
---------------

Walk north through the door to enter a large room with various control panels.
Look at the green console and look at the gap in the machinery to see that
there is a part missing. Exit the view of the console. Climb the long path up
and go outside at the top. Continue left and knock the nest off of the light
bridge device, then adjust the lens and use the button on the device until a
light bridge is made. Walk over the light bridge and go to the museum spire.


MUSEUM SPIRE
------------

Walk down the path, go left to the tram station and walk through the broken
door to the room with the life crystals. Get two crystals, then exit the room,
go outside and walk back up the path to the light bridge. Walk over the light
bridge and go to the tomb spire.


TOMB SPIRE
----------

Walk north to the edge and go down to the tomb. Stand on the crypt to be taken
down to the lower level, then walk left and go through the door to return to
the room with the pyramid. Walk up to the pyramid and use the yellow engraved
rod on the panel. Use one of the glowing crystals on the alien corpse and
Maggie will step forward to translate the words that the alien speaks. Ask
about the alien device four times and the eye part twice. Exit the conversation
and get the creator's engraving from the floor. Walk right along the walkway to
the door, then use the crypt to travel up to the tomb. Walk outside, go north
along the path and walk along the light bridge. Select the map spire.


MAP SPIRE
---------

Walk through to the map room, look at the panel and enter the geometric shapes
from the creator's engraving to view a beach. Walk left to the pit, left to the
chamber, left to the nest, right to the door and north to the beach. Remove the
rock with the triangular marking and get the eye part. Go north to the falls,
right to the nest, left to the door, right through the pit, north through the
opening and cross over the light bridge. Select the cathedral spire.


CATHEDRAL SPIRE
---------------

Walk right to the lab and go down the long spiralling path to the green console
at the bottom. Brink will appear at this point and demand that Low gives him
the life crystals. After he leaves, walk up the path to the top and cross over
the light bridge. Select the tomb spire.


TOMB SPIRE
----------

Walk right to the cave interior and north to the platform to meet Brink. Show
the eye part to Brink, then use the eye part with the slot in the relic to get
two life crystals. Brink will attempt to kill Low, but will fall over the edge
of the cliff. Get the eye part from the relic, then walk right to the cavern,
left to the path and cross over the light bridge. Select the cathedral spire.


CATHEDRAL SPIRE
---------------

Walk right to the lab and go down the long spiralling path to the green console
at the bottom. Look at the console, use the eye part in the gap in machinery
and a life crystal in both empty slots. Exit the view of the console and walk
up the long spiralling path. Talk to Robbins about the alien device, and she
will say that the person that operates the machine may die. When she turns the
machine on, she will be fall down to the path below and be killed in the fall.
Though Maggie made Low promise that he was not to use a life crystal on her if
she died, using one here will effect the ending very slightly.

Either use a life crystal on her or leave her where she is, then walk up to the
top of the path. Walk left and cross over the light bridge to see a massive
guard dog come charging down it from the crystal. Use the strange device, hold
the button to retract the bridge and the guard dog will fall down. Look at the
strange device again and use the button to create the bridge leading to the
crystal, then exit the view of the device. Cross the light bridge and walk into
the eye in the middle of the crystal. Select the portal to complete the game.

  the cover of the panel in the nexus has been removed by the tusk, the wire is
  connected to the sparks and the panel.
