Contradiction – Spot the Liar!: Walkthrough Guide

Friday, After 10pm, 63%:

You can watch my video for this part of the walkthrough or continue below for the step-by-step guide:

1. Enter the pub. You’ll catch Ryan and Rebecca talking. Rebecca lightly slaps Ryan and gives him something. Go into the restaurant and press the magnifying glass. Jenks will find a prescription for drugs made out to Rebecca.



2. Ask Rebecca about the prescription. She says they’re just painkillers. Ah! Another contradiction:

“Rebecca said the cupboard contains her prescription painkillers.”
“Rebecca doesn’t take any drugs or medicines.”


She admits that they’re Ryan’s painkillers! She says he has arthritis.

Your progress should now be at 67%.

3. Ask Paul about Ryan’s arthritis. He says he doesn’t believe Ryan has arthritis. He’s just been using it as an excuse to take painkillers ever since he injured his back.

4. Go back to Eden Lodge. Jenks will catch Simon dropping some items while entering his home. Jenks will pick up the dropped business card and key ring.


5. Go inside and question Simon about Ryan’s arthritis and the two items he dropped. He claims the the card is from an IT person and the numbers 1905 on the back of the card are his PIN. He says the key ring is from the keys of his new car. Contradiction!

“Simon says he owns a new car.”
“Simon said the bike is the only way he can get to work.”


Simon says he doesn’t have a license yet, that he bought the car after getting insurance money for his stolen laptop.

Your progress should now be at 70%.

6. Ask Emma, Rebecca and Paul about the business card, keychain and stolen laptop. Then head back to Atlas to talk to Ryan. Ask him about the prescription, the arthritis, the business card, key ring and stolen laptop. Another contradiction:

“Ryan said he keeps some of his painkillers at work and some at home.”
“Atlas doesn’t keep any medicines on site at Atlas due to insurance restrictions.”


Ryan admits that the painkillers he takes are morphine. Kate had taken morphine!

Your progress should now be at 74%.

7. There’s another contradiction!

“Ryan said he keeps the morphine in a secure store room at Atlas.”
“Ryan said the store room isn’t particularly secure.”


Ryan says e morphine was locked up in a different room upstairs, which is locked with a key code.

Your progress should now be at 78%.

8. Leave the room and go upstairs. Use the business card on the locked door and Jenks will punch in the numbers from the back. It opens! It turns out to be the Mirror Room.


9. Go back to Ryan and ask him about the Mirror Room. He doesn’t offer much info, so go back to Simon and ask him. He claims he doesn’t know the combination to get into the room. Lying! Here’s the contradiction:

“Simon said he didn’t know the combination of the locked mirror room.”
“Simon has memorized the PIN number on the business card, so he didn’t need the card.”


Simon admits he had been in the mirror room with Kate and they both tried morphine.

Your progress should now be at 81%.

    Thank you for doing this — I look forward to when you get to the very end of the game, because that’s where I’m stuck.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I played it a few months back, so I forgot some of the contradictions. But I remember the end better than the middle!

    2. Jeremy

      Where are you stuck? I’m stuck as well … I’m at 85% talking to Ryan and can’t figure out what to do. Even with the cheat, all of the matches I try related to each other aren’t working… Otherwise this is an excellent game!

      1. Jinx

        I’m stuck at 96% — so frustrating!

        1. AppUnwrapper

          Almost there. 93% and forgot what the contradiction is at this point. :/

        2. AppUnwrapper

          I just finished the walkthrough if you still need help. 🙂

    The piece of tape was the first clue Jenks ever had ,stuck to the Driving Licence.And analyzing the broken window behind the pub ,in the beginning showwed that same piece of tape ,that should have been the first lead.Yet ,somehow ,Jenks and the game ,ignores it from the very beginning ?As soon as I saw it on the window I knew the pub people were involved somehow ,but the game didn’t allow you to collect it from the black plastic bag covering the window………that was a BIG flaw in the game scenario…….

    1. AppUnwrapper

      That’s true. I think I was able to forgive it because I still enjoyed the game so much. But I agree, it doesn’t make sense that Jenks didn’t ask about it earlier.

  3. Jinx

    Yeah, the tape thing was irritating as a way to end it. 1) why would I assume the same tape was used? The game didn’t let you collect it from the window. 2) Why would that be the thing that exposed everything? All it takes in response is saying “oh, you’re right, I forgot I used it on the window. Must be where I remember it from.” 3) Based on such flimsy evidence there’s no way I can see the cool, calm Rebecca blurting out a confession. The tape was hardly a smoking gun.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I was more surprised that Rebecca admitted to pushing her down with a stick. Not saving someone isn’t a crime, but actively helping them die is.

      But I still really enjoyed the game — even if the ending wasn’t up to snuff.

    2. AppUnwrapper

      …just like the holes we found in Her Story doesn’t negate everything I got out of the game.

  4. James

    “It turns out Rebecca killed Kate because she thought she was having an affair with Emma, when it was really Emma”

    Emma?? Don’t you mean Ryan??? Nice typo!!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Lol sorry! “Wasn’t Emma, it was Emma!” Yeah…. Maybe if this was Her Story. 😛
      Thanks…will fix that!

    Finished the game.. with some help from this excellent walkthrough when I was stuck but surprisingly my progress is at 96%…. how could it be? what did I miss? I would expect since I finish the game to be at 100%, right?

    Left me puzzled… I really enjoyed the game though, wish they can do a sequel like they are hinting at in the credits

  6. Stacey

    I found going back and asking the same people the new questions over and over a little tedious after a while.

    Also, I had primarily used the map to get places and never would have seen things in the woods without the walkthrough telling me to walk into the woods. So the game contradicts itself! It tells you to use the map but you can finish the game without walking in the woods sometimes.

    Thanks for all your walkthrough and recommendations!
