NoStranger (No Stranger)
By: Scott Mulligan
This is a complete a step-by-step walkthrough with hints, tips, tricks, solutions and answers for the iOS and Android text adventure game NoStranger by Scott Mulligan. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.
Adam needs to find a hospital nearest to Grazin’ Diner in Hudson, New York. Use Google Maps to find the diner. If you look a bit east, you can find the Columbia-Greene Hospital Foundation (or Columbia Memorial Hospital).
So tell Adam the direction to the hospital is East.
Adam asks you to look at Tim June’s blog and tell him the last word of his latest blog post. Head over to The Good Life is Now blog at http://thegoodlifeisnow.blogspot.com and look at the last post, which is at the very top of the page, called “Need to get something off my chest…” Scroll all the way down and find the last word, which is alive — that’s the answer for Adam.
Adam then asks you to find out where Tim June is going on 9/24. Head over to the “Exciting Plans!” post at http://thegoodlifeisnow.blogspot.com/2016/06/exciting-plans.html?m=1 and Notice it says he’ll be at an R & B Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (or BAM) — enter either Brooklyn Academy of Music or BAM as the answer.
Adam then asks you who Tim is taking with him. The answer is Momma June.
Next, Adam wants you to help him sneak into the Peter Sharp Building at BAM. Open Google Maps and search for it. Go to Street View and find the front of the building. Head around the left side of the building to find a stage door.
Tell Adam I think I see an open stage door (may be risky).
Adam asks what street it’s on. Tell him St Felix.
He then asks you to go back to Google Maps and look at the pink photo of the inside of BAM. He wants you to find someone with a beard and a mother by their side. You can see someone like that by the bar! Tell Adam, I think I see him by the bar.

This is the riddle:
“This is the Flubberton riddle.
There was a town of Flubbertons. Nice jolly creatures.
It wasn’t a beautiful night like any other in Flubberfall due to the huge fog that had set over Flubberfall due to the annual flood.
That day there was a dead Flubberton, the Flubber trumpeter, found in the town hall.
There were five Flubbers in the hall at the time.
The Flubber Mayor, number 1
The Flubber doctor, number 2
A Flubber clerk, number 3
A Flubber teacher, number 4
And you, the Flubber detective happened to be in the hall as well.
The Flubber mayor said he was in his office signing legislation when he heard the trumpeter cry out.
The Flubber doctor said he was with the Flubber teacher checking out old town records.
The Flubber clerk said he was in the observatory at the time of the murder watching the stars.
The Flubber teacher concurred with the doctor.
You claimed you were doing ‘detective’ work and couldn’t disclose your doings.
Needless to say, the Flubbers have united against you and will execute you if you don’t find out who murdered the trumpeter in five minutes.
Defend yourself. Who really murdered the trumpeter?
1, 2, 3, or 4?”
Answer: 3, because the clerk couldn’t have been watching the stars on a foggy night!
Adam then asks you to take a personality test at https://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test.
He also gives you a Spotify playlist if you want to listen to it: http://tinyurl.com/my-playlist-listen
Take the test so you can tell him what you got. It’s five letters. Mine was INFP-A.
Next, Adam asks you to find Mystical Lady Creature on Tumblr. I couldn’t find it by searching. You might need to use the direct link. This is the link: http://mysticalladycreature.tumblr.com/
That’s Noel Saviore’s blog.
Next, Adam asks you to find Julio Felinopious’ Tumblr. Google him to find it and tell Adam his Tumblr is http://thefabulouswonderman.tumblr.com/
Adam then asks you to find out when they’ll both be in the US. He wants the month and day. The first US date on Julio’s Fabulous Wonderman Tour Dates is on 10/1 and Noel’s blog says:
“Call to Action!
In addition to my previous post in which I smashed Julio Felinopidouche, I would like to say I will be protesting his event at the Las Vegas Convention Center on 10/1.
I hope to see some of you there! We must fight together to win.”
So the answer is 10/1 — he’ll be in Las Vegas then.
Go to http://tinyurl.com/flubberton-riddle-2 to see riddle #2.
This is the riddle:
Ah, I have another riddle about the Flubbertons.
You see, the Flubbertons are weird creatures.
They have certain rules.
2. If you are born blue, you are killed at age 6 in Flubberton years.
4. When you turn 32 in Flubberton years, (288 regular years), you are killed.
6. The Flubbertons must keep their maximum population to a certain number to preserve self-sufficiency.
The first number is 2x the second but two less than the third and five more than the last.
8. You must watch the human movie, Fight Club, released in 1999, at least 8 times a year.
10. Flubbertons hate odd numbers, however, the number 9 is a sacred number, and the only odd number to be admired.
12. The only reason this rule exists is to avoid an odd number of rules.
They also can’t remember the simplest things.
Like a password.
One day, when you, a Flubberton, were coming back to town,
You couldn’t get back into town without opening the gate.
You got lost in the forest today and came back late.
The gate is closed at night because of the Lioners.
You see, the Lioners eat the Flubbertons.
The gate requires a 4 digit passcode.
By the look of the sun, you have about 18 minutes until the Lioners come out to get you.
You remember the passcode has something to do with the rules of the Flubbertons.
Best of luck.”
The answer is 9999. Kind of a trick question, it seems. I tried it on a whim and it worked.
Next up, Adam wants you to go to http://tinyurl.com/lasvegas-cc (or http://m.imgur.com/a/pH83P).
This is the map for the Las Vegas Convention Center. Adam asks what you think he should do. I think you have a little flexibility here. But I chose Let’s have some fun! I see a bunch of entrances. Can we get a look at one of them? Then I said There’s a First Aid room inside. Then I chose Pretend like one of your friends is injured and you have to grab something from the first aid station in the building. I then chose It doesn’t matter! Just do it. Make it Ghoulia for all I care. That worked, but on another play-through I chose the vending machine, so I think either option is fine.
Adam then asks you some personal questions. Answer however you like.
Next, Adam asks you to check out the Las Vegas Convention Center map for room N-218 and tell him where to find the nearest staircase. The answer is East.
He then says he’s near the vending machines on the first floor and needs to find the nearest exit. Since he came down the stairs, you need to look at the vending machine near the stairs. Choose the exit that’s closest to it. The answer is East.
Next, I chose Get to the gate! I don’t know that it makes a difference, though. In the end, Adam should get in the truck with Noel.
Go over to http://tinyurl.com/flubberton-riddle-insane to see riddle #3. It’s a tricky one, so you might want to look at the riddle before starting the timer, as it’s a tricky one! This is what it says:
“Back to Flubberfall.
Alien invaders have come to destroy Flubberfall,
You, being the smartest Flubberton of Flubberfall,
Have accepted the challenge of the invaders,
You see, they have designed a riddle that will determine the fate of Flubberfall,
Because, as in all riddles, aliens are weirdly benevolent but also war mongers,
The only thing you have to do is provide the name of the alien invaders.
The riddle goes as follows,
There are fifty two Flubbertons,
They are each assigned a number, 1-26, and then again 1-26.
Only seven are told to come forward.
They are each allowed to tell you one thing that doesn’t give away your number but can hint towards it.
The first one tells you his number someone else has
The second one tells you his number is a multiple of 5
The third one tells you his number adds to 9
The fourth tells you his number is the lowest
The fifth one tells you his number is the highest
The sixth one tells you his number is the same as the third one
The seventh one tells you his number is a palindrome
And just for fun, the aliens made two of the Flubbertons say each other’s clue.
These two Flubberton’s numbers add to the sacred one and are right next to each other.
One of the Flubbertons has a number where the second digit is five times the first digit.
The same number is not repeated twice next to each other.
And another number is the loneliest number of them all.
See, even disturbed aliens can have a sense of humor.
So, what is the name of the aliens?
They decided to give you 11 minutes to complete the riddle.
They wanted to give you 22 minutes but figured that would be too much of a hint.
You only have four attempts.
Best of luck. The fate of Flubberfall and the Flubbertons lies in your hands.
Your time starts… Well, it already started when you I sent you this link!”
You need to figure out each of the seven numbers and then translate them into the letters of the alphabet.
The first is someone else’s number. 22 makes the most sense because two numbers can’t be next to each other.
The second is 15 because it’s a multiple of 5 and also the second digit is 5x the first digit.
The third is 18, because 1+8=9.
The fourth and fifth Flubbertons gave each other’s clues. So the fourth is 23.
The fifth is the lowest number and the loneliest number of them all, 1.
The sixth number is the same as the third, so 18.
The seventh number is a palindrome, so 22 — it’s in the riddle as a hint.
Put them altogether and you get 22, 15, 18, 23, 1, 18, 22.
So the answer to riddle #3 is VORWARV.
Now Adam wants you to go on YouTube and find Durev Dama’s channel. His first video can be found here: https://youtu.be/aMpCEQCekbU
Adam wants asks you for his contact info. The answer is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adam then asks you to contact him. Just send him an email that says anything and you should get a response back right away. Tell Adam he sent A picture of these rocks in a formation.
Reverse Google Image the photo and you should see that it’s from Hillsdale, NY. So the answer is Hillsdale.
Adam then asks you for more information from the first video. Answer He said, “if she wanted to find me, she could.’
Next, he wants you to find a hidden video. Look at Durev Dama’s playlists. One of them is titled ?v=SOwr1OK38no. You need to take that name and add it to the end of another YouTube URL, like so:
Now give him the name of that hidden video: Rettam
At the end of that video there’s a QR code. Scan it to open up another video. That one’s titled Efil.
You can find it here: https://youtu.be/jNVEi2MPX0w
Adam then asks you to find the link for a blog in the description of that video. This is the link you need to give him: http://pepper-spirit.tumblr.com/
Also, visit the blog. Go down to the post “Don’t be concerned…” and find her email. It’s email@example.com. Email her and watch the video she sends you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1KA25QPccs
The name of this video is “sekam 1-518-288-0014” — call that number and Pepper will tell you to find her Deviant Art page. The link is: http://pepperxjune.deviantart.com/
Her Facebook page is linked in her ID: www.facebook.com/RIP-Pepper-June-2066637636894149/
Read the About page and then tell Adam the final word is us.
There’s one last video at tinyurl.com/goodbyesorry
It’s titled “htaeD”.
And that’s the end!
Try emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
