    I cant for the life of me work out which way the arrows go, clue number 26, chapter 1 in your walkthrough. please help!

    1. Dalton

      The square faces the circle
      The triangle faces the square
      The hexagon faces the triangle
      The circle faces the hexagon

  2. Dalton

    I’m stuck on the third key code and have no idea where to find it, step 4 chapter two

    1. Adrien


  3. Elss

    I must be tone deaf or something, I can’t get the tune on the glockenspiel. Can you tell me which keys to hit? Thanks.

    1. n37

      (From left to right) first-third-first-last 🙂

  4. n37

    Im stuck at keypad C where do i find it?

  5. kat

    keypad c is actually part of the screensaver on the computer(the above clue is wrong) Go to the computer in the staff room and then just wait until the screensaver comes on (about 20 secs)

    1. Emma

      there’s no screensaver after a minute!

      1. melissa

        go to the computer at the reception desk. type in the username and password that was you find on the notepad on the reception desk (you need to use the pencel for that) in one of the files it will say that the patient keeps repeating a number…..thats you’re code

      2. NH


      3. Arr

        It’s in one of the patient files on the computer..

    2. Kelvin

      actually, its also on the computer near the radio. when you login as alice white, view the patient files of Karl Scheiner. it says that he constantly repeats the sequence C-8008 🙂

      1. Mirwais

        how to find the Code No for A??

  6. Mk

    The book exit will not open after I’ve pressed in the books-what do i do?

    1. Aldo Johnson

      Look in the “Hints” section. You actually have to put a book in.

  7. Darlene

    I have touched the keys several time at the same time and nothing happens what am I doing wrong

    1. Kristow4

      Set the clocks to the same time then press them both at the same time

  8. pg

    I finished the game but I still dont know who the guy is 😀 I forgot reading the letter who is this guy? paticent or nurse or doctor?

    1. Aldo Johnson

      We still don’t know who the guy is. The letter something along the lines that “subject 47a (the guy) woke up confused but then went through the puzzles; but that the subject is leaving the maze so the experiment is moving to stage 2”

      1. Marie

        What are the keys to touch in the nursery can not get the last 3 tones

    2. Mark lenton

      What’s the clue for keypad A

    3. michelle

      I’m not to sure what to think about tht ending myself….its pretty obvious in the game title “lost …..ep 1”, tht there will be more episodes. But I, myself coulda’ thought of a hundred different ways to end it, or continue it……blah!
      But I loved it til the end…..

  9. Robert

    Which are the codes for the A, B and C keypads?

    1. Cris

      The A code is in the patient filing cabinet in the office staff rm. The B code is in the room where you turn both keys at once. Adjust the lights for the code to appear. The C code is the screen saver that shows up after watching “good things come to all who wait” on the computer where the filing cabinet is.

  10. Danalee

    I’m at the end of the game, but stuck staring at monitors. I can’t do anything! Help!

    1. Aldo Johnson

      There should be a door to the left.

  11. Cris

    I get the username and password correct, but still fail to open electronic door. What do I type in?

    1. Cris

      I mean the username and password on the computer with the radio next to it. I don’t know what to type to unlock the electronic door

  12. Mrtoolow

    I am playing forever lost on my Kindle Fire. I have been unable to enter the username and passcode from the computer at the reception desk that opens the electronic door because there isnt a return or enter key on the Kindle Fire keyboard. I revealed the correct username and passcode from the scetch pad I pencil’d on. I have never had problems with typing on the keyboard before. I purchased and downloaded from Amazon a few days ago it was fairly new only had a couple of reviews and noticed another reviewer was having the same problem. Is this a developer error or glitch? Or is there a simple step I’m missing? I cant finish the game without being able to open the electronic door can I? What to do?

    1. Fernanda

      I also can not, could you?

  13. Cris

    I’ll ask again-I can’t get the electric door open using the username and password on that computer next to the etched paper. I have the username and password correct, but when it asks “hello Alice what would you like to do today?”, I don’t know what to type, nothing works. Help!

    1. jemareal

      You have to enter the corresponding number next to it

  14. Claire lee

    What’s the xlaphone code

    1. rafiq

      131 and then the last one

  15. Mark lenton

    How do I get through after the electric door

  16. Celine

    I can’t seem to figure out the code of keypad B. Can’t find it anywhere.. 🙁

    1. Valerie

      Key pd B is 7421

      1. AlexW

        No, it’s 7241. You mixed up two digits.

  17. Stratagem

    I can’t remember the color of symbols . Plz Help me 🙁

    1. cman

      Does anyone have any idea which order to put the hieroglyphic symbols in the puzzle that requires you to use glasses at the end?

      I can’t figure this out at all, and no answers were given on the internet.

      Can someone help with this and post the answers?

      1. Shantelle

        U have to use the colors that they are like the M is red so put M in the red one and the O in the blue and so on ur welcome

      2. Valerie

        Match the clues with the colors. Aries green, Taurus purple, Virgo yellow, and Libra red.

        1. MTC

    1. Gino

      Name: ajwhite

      Not being able to put down the banana was indeed a huge bug of this game. The symbol on the banana appears on the iPad game. You go there and use your UV glasses to see one of the four icons you need to line up in a different puzzle.

      I took screenshots of every clue I was provided EXCEPT for that one. Days later when I continued the game I didn’t remember what symbol it was.

  94. Ambo990

      They probably changed the multitouch puzzles for Mac/PC. But I don’t have those versions, so I can’t help you. Might want to reach out to the devs.

    2. AppUnwrapper

      Ok they told me that on PC/Mac you can have a short delay between pressing the buttons (a few seconds).

    3. Wendi

      Turn both clocks to the same time then go back to the keys.

To make sure it is correct door… After you turn right tap on the left side of wall and there will be a marking in red!)-this is all before the inserting of the token!

    Hint 34 refers to the poster in the office for a glitch search. I have not seen the response to this question that has been posted by 2 other players. Yes, I feel like a idiot but I have tried everything I can think of. Will someone please tell me what the search answer is?

    I guessed correctly and took the elevator up. Where does “down” take me? I don’t want to play again from scratch to find out.

      Nothing happens when you hit the down button. It’s only there so you can go back down again after you go up. I would like to know what the point of the banana and other cards was.

    I’m just getting to this game and can’t find the Star Puzzle Piece for the nursery – I hope you can help me as I can’t find it in your w/t either. (I have the Circle, Square & Triangle)

      Ok, found the “Hints” and didn’t know I had to go back into the ‘game’ and into the cave. *sigh* Bigger game than I thought!

        1. linda

          I am – but it seems I must go into the game yet again. I’m confused about what to do with one of the hints – if I can’t figure it out, I’ll be back, lol. Thanks!

    I cannot find my way out of the computer game from the waiting room. Just going around in circles in the maze. Thought I picked up the key to the chest but canΓÇÖt find it & cant get out.

    So we cannot save Hugo Simms (the red guy in ICeption) in part 1? :/ I tried to talk to him before leaving, but it does nothing more.
