Ellie – Help me out…please

Click here for my review.



*Note: Only read this if you want full details on how to escape. You will read spoilers here. If you want hints instead, ask in the comments section.

1. In the left screen, pick up the coin from the ground.

2. Use the vice on the wall to flatten the coin, turning it into a tool.

3. Use the flattened coin to unscrew the mirror from the wall. We’ll be needing it later.

4. There’s an item on the ground in the right screen. You might notice that if you try to pick it up, Ellie’s head gets in the way. But you need that item to continue, so here’s what you have to do. Have her examine the drawers in the other screen. While she’s busy there, grab the item from the right screen (it’s her planner). Make sure to get it before opening the drawers, or you might not be able to progress.

5. Now look at the carvings on the desk. It’s an interrogation list. If you look at the first letters of the names, it says “OPEN DRAWER”.

O liver
P atrick
E dward
N ick
D avid
R askin
A nvil
W atson
E mbrey
R edmond

This means it’s the key to opening the drawers. Ao look at the numbers you got.

6. Now look at the poster on the wall. You need to compare the numbers from the desk to the numbers on the poster. Together they’ll spell out six letters, made up of C’s and L’s. For instance, if your numbers are 530 and 830, copy them down like so:

5 * *** *
3 * * *
0 *** *** ***

8 *** * ***
3 * * *
0 *** *** ***

If you look closely, they spell LCL CLC.
L = Left, C = Center.

(Hint: Notice that the C’s and L’s look the same except for the top piece. So you can just focus on the top numbers and ignore the rest.)

7. Open the drawers in the sequence you got from the poster. One of the drawers will have a trowel inside. Take it. Also, make note of the words inside the drawer: “There is M.onStar”. We’ll need it later.

8. Use the trowel to dig at the tile that has mushrooms growing from it. She’ll uncover an arm, with a ring on it. Leave the ring on the finger (you can remove it later).

9. The ring will flash in a sequence like Morse code. There are nine flashes total. Make note of the long and short flashes. Once you have all nine, take a look at the poster again. You need to break them down into three sets of three. Then compare the three sets to the numbers on the poster to get three numbers. Mine were 103, but they seem to be different for everyone. Remember that number, because we’ll need it soon.

10. Go to the right screen and move the pillow away. Underneath is part of a message that was burnt into the bed. We need heat to see the rest of the message.

11. Have Ellie look at the planner she picked up earlier. It will remind her that she has a hair dryer in her gym bag. But she doesn’t remember the code to unlock it.

12. Tap on the gym bag a few times until it allows you to see the lock. Enter the number you got from
the ring flashes. The lock will open if you got the right numbers.

        1. Titionibi

          U just only see the first number,4 and 5 then look the morse code on the poster.that’s written,short,short,long and short,long,short.short means u must click left drawers and long means center.so the code is LEFT LEFT CENTER and LEFT CENTER LEFT.click that code so the drawers will be open

      1. Jadan Dean

        I can’t open the drawer, I kept doing LCL CLC, but it didn’t work And I cant figure out how to open the drawers

  2. Aja

    My morse code only had 8 flashes? it went sls. ss. lll. (S being short and L being long, with pauses) I have no clue how to figure this out please help.

      1. Jolene

        No, you’re wrong. It doesn’t have to be nine flashes. For the code on the wall, u can see that only 1&2 r special cases. They only have 2 markings. And mine has 8 flashes in total and I succeeded.

      2. Lavinia

        I’m just saying but there can be between 6-9 flashes in total of the ring for morse code because of the lines of the pattern on the picture on the wall. You just need to count the flashes and also look carefully for the pause. For example, I only had 8 flashes in total.

      3. Celeste

        Well my flashes were short flash ,short flash,short flash, short flash, short flash,short flash,long flash , short flash, short flash. And then my numbers were 430 and 530 so what would her combination locked be

    1. Jacqui

      Loo at number one on the poster on the wall, it shows that it’s possible that there are only 8 flashes, i had the same problem

    2. manny

      ss would be 1 and i had 8 numbers for mine too being lls lls sl which came out to be 992, from those numbers their was only 3 possible keys for mine, yours has five possible keys

    3. Ellie

      it’s ss because the top number (on mine it’s the top) only has two bars this means it will be one of the numbers with two bars and not three

          1. Sandy

            Lol the mirros is easy. Get the coin near the mushrooms and put the coin in the vice and Viola! Go to the mirror

    4. Cora

      I can explain. Some numbers like possibly 1 or 2 has only 2 lines. For 1 its a short line and short line. So sometimes it can give u eight instead of nine :3

    5. Miri-chan

      If you only got 8, then there has to be a 1 or 2 in your code, because those are the numbers that only need 2 flashes

    6. ray

      If you only get 8 flashes.. thats mean the last 3 only have 2 flashes and 1 empty.. look at the poster on the wall.. see if there any number with only 2 code.. it should be there..

    1. mathon

      You’ll need 3 serial of flashes to find 3 numbers. Look and wait. for each flash, we can have 2 or 3 flash Light.
      so, we can have for example: LLS SL LSS. See the wall and find code of the bag

  3. Bear

    Can’t get her to hold the mirror over the star.
    Selected the mirror then click on the star don’t work advise, please

  4. Puzzler

    I can’t figure out the code it won’t open for me I have the numbers 430 and 530 and 430 is ccl ccc lll and 530 is lcl ccc lll help!

    1. Symbologist

      Ignore the second and third digit from both 3-digit codes from the table. So you are only looking at 4 & 5 to open the drawer. Also you had the drawers backwards.
      Short bar = Left drawer
      Long bar = Center drawer
      So this combination 430 & 530 is: LLC LCL

  5. Lauren

    I’m completely confused how you open the drawers. I’ve tried everything I can think of and nothing works. Thanks

    1. Symbologist

      The emergency exit code consist of 6 digits. Using the carved roman numerals on the wall above the bed you will be able to decifer the six digits. In the case of not understanding how to divide the numbers on the wall, please refer to the clock on the wall. The numbers for each hour are listed in roman numerals.
      For example,
      1 = I
      2 = II
      3 = III
      4 = IV
      5 = V
      6 = VI
      7 = VII
      8 = VIII
      9 = IX
      Ignore the strike in the center of these numbers. It is only there adding to the atmosphere. The spacing between the numbers should be enough to display 6 numbers.

      1. Atalante

        I’m sorry if I may sounds like a total dump… but I really don’t get the logic behind it.. Like how the clock is supposed to help divide. What give the hint?
        For mine, I got : ll ll ll V Vll ll and 5:35 for the hours…
        It’s been an hour, and I still don’t get how to divide it. If you could explain me on how to use all those numbers to create the correct code, I would be grateful (I’m much more interested in understanding the problem, than the code itself)

        1. Atalante

          Nevermind… Found some comments further, and just had to read it normally like perfect normal roman number, not to divide them (the formulation here, and above in the solution lost me.. Was reading them as the right numbers, looking for a way to rearranged/broke them, like the walkthrough suggested…)

    1. Symbologist

      After getting the “trowel” from the drawer, equip it as the current item then dig at the mushroom infront of the table. It removes the tile and expose the dirt. Afterwards, use the trowel on the dirt square and uncover the hand with the flashing ring. Leave the ring on the finger until you got the code from the flashes. Be patient with the flashes as to finding the start of the code. The lock consist of 3 digits only; therefore, only 3 sets of flashes will display from the ring. The will be a 1 sec pause between each set of pulse and a 2 sec pause will indicate the start of the replay of the 3 sets of pulse again.

      Using the poster above the table, you will match the short and long pulse with the indicated number on the poster to aquire your 3 digit code for the lock on the bag. Remember, number 1 & 2 on the poster only have 2 pulses each so it is possible to have less than 9 total pulse.

    1. Symbologist

      After you picked up the organizer, select it in as the current item and then click on her to view the organizer. It will then reminds her that she have the hairdryer and gymcloths in the bag.

  6. Symbologist

    Seeing how many people get stuck on the combination for the drawer I’ll try to break it down. No matter what your two 3-digit code is on the table, ignore the second and third digit from both set of numbers. All that matters is the first number from both code. Using the poster on above the table you will then breakdown the code from it.

    Short bar = Left drawer
    Long bar = Center drawer

    For example: 530 & 630 – so only taking the first number from both codes, I will look at the poster number 5 = Short Long Short, which translates to Left Center Left; number 6 = Short Long Long, which translates to Left Center Center.

    As for code 030, please look at number 10 on the poster which translates to Center Center Center.

    I believe code 130 and 230 do not exist since it does not have all three drawers on the poster to provide the third drawer position.

    I hope this will help out in any players that still enjoys this game. All I’m stuck on is trying to unlock all 4 wallpaper. Only got two of the four wallpaper so far. I don’t know is it 2 bad end and 2 good end or just 1 bad end and 1 good end. Each ending should tie into unlocking one of the wallpapers.

  7. emily

    She needs to hold the mirror again. I’ve flooded the room, but I can’t get her to hold the mirror over the star again. Please help. /:

  8. Abby

    I’m really confused. My numbers on the table are 030 830. I was a little confused on the 8 at first but then I saw you classified it as center, so with that I should have CLC CLC shouldn’t I? That didn’t work so I’m hoping you could tell me what I did wrong.

  9. Ben

    ive tried twice but couldn’t got good ending
    besides i couldn’t saw any sign of the real ellie
    what should i do?

    1. Jessica

      Ok first u need to open the drawers but u have to get the organizer on the floor before that. Then u take the trowel and dig at the spot where the mushroom pokes out and look at the ring and how much it blinks. Then look inside the drawer it should say M.OnStar meaning have her hold the mirror over the star but first you need to clog the toilet with her gym clothes and read the letters burned into the bed by having her hold the hair dryer to it. When she reads the letters clog the toilet with the gym clothes. Have her hold up the mirror and then click on the mirror and the reflection. Then click on the wall with the trowel and look at the Roman numerals have them put in the wall panel. Finally open the hatch and have the girl pull on the hair dryer to electrocute Ellie. There’s ur good end.

  10. Megumi Asahina

    Well I get to the drawer thing, so my numbers were 730 and 630… the so the combination is CLC LCL the problem is that when I try it… it doesn´t work, don´t know what am I doing wrong

  11. Sarah

    I get to the drawer part and I got the same numbers as you did (530-830) but I can’t figure out what I’m supposed to do afterwards because I tried to make her pull on the drawers and it hasn’t worked for me. Please help.

  12. Bartfj123

    I get the code from the ring sll SS lss but when i try it does nothing, do i need to click something?

  13. Siashy

    Real Ellie never appears! Neither in the mirror nor tied!I cant have Ellie pulling on the hair dryer :'(
    (you can put the gym clothes inside the toilet :0)

  14. Nur Ainul Aima Sapiar

    How to count the flashes ? My code is 630 830 and I already get the trowel .. But I don’t know what to do next …

  15. Dark magician

    My Morse code have allot more than nine flashes but the numbers of the first nine that I type Dont work. Help. Really want to finish game.

  16. Me

    I have 630 830 and i have tried everything to open the drawers and nothing, i am having a hell of a time if someone could help please!!!

  17. Thorit

    My code is 830 730 and i tried to enter the code as people have said but i dont get the consept of L and C when there is 3 drawers. is the third drawer like a space when you go to the next digit or something??

    1. Da Dood

      [Drawer combination]
      Is your code like this?
      8 7
      3 3
      0 0
      If it is, then you just pay attention to the 8 and 7. Follow the poster. The poster should be something like below:
      7 ▓▓▓ ▓ ▓
      8 ▓▓▓ ▓ ▓▓▓
      C=Center (▓▓▓), L=Left (▓)
      So your combination would be CLLCLC.

      Example 2:
      1 2
      0 3
      0 4
      Pay attention only to 1 and 2.
      1 ▓ ▓
      2 ▓ ▓▓▓
      So your combination would be LLLC.
      *Note: If there is a blank space, it does not mean right.
      *Note: Everyone’s combination is different, you would have to understand this concept.
      (Please reply if I am wrong)

  18. mahya

    in fact i just finish this game …..in the end ellie will kill us after we save her…..just this°-°

    1. maryamaldita

      it was already indicated in the walkthrough. you have to let her examine the drawers in the left screen, then immediately go to the right screen, then grab the planner. You should grab the planner before you open the drawer.

  19. Sonno Eterna

    I decoded the whole drawer thing, my numbers were 730 and 830, thus the code is CLL, CLC for me, yet when I enter it, nothing happens. Am I supposed to be holding a certain item as I do it, or am I just doing it wrong?

  20. Kennyboo

    OMG!!! I don’t get this code thingy! My code is 030 830, I need help please! Like asap. Hellllpppp mmmmeeee, I’m not smart.

  21. Daniel

    Kenny boo, and everyone else. …

    Ignore most of the numbers on the open drawer list. Only use the top two: e.g. 0 & 8.

    Then look at the code poster above the table and use the same numbers e.g. 0 & 8.

    The short blocks are left drawer, long blocks middle drawer. …
    So example s s l s s s would be left left middle left left left
    S l l s s l would be left middle middle left left middle.
    Final click with open middle drawer for you.
