Contradiction – Spot the Liar!: Walkthrough Guide

Friday, After 11pm, 81%:

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

1. Head towards Abbey Farm and Jenks will eavesdrop on James receiving s package from someone. That seems shady. Go up to the large greenhouse by Abbey Farm and tap the magnifying glass. Jenks will inspect the box and find poppy pods.

2. Ask James about the business card, key ring and poppy pods. Kate’s body had opium in it when she was found and opium is in poppy seeds. James claims he just uses them for decorations.

3. Ask Paul about the mirror room and the poppy pods. He doesn’t know much and neither does Rebecca. But if you ask Simon, he says he’s allergic to opium. That’s a contradiction!

“Simon explained that he is allergic to opiates.”
“Simon said he and Kate took morphine in the mirror room.”


Simon admits that he was testing Kate to see if she was a Prime Candidate, and didn’t take the morphine himself.

Your progress should now be at 85%.

4. Ask Emma about the Prime Candidates. She’ll say she doesn’t think Simon would be a prime candidate because he has too many morals. Ask Paul and Rebecca about the Prime Candidates to learn that the best students get guaranteed jobs with high salaries. But most aren’t up to the job and get sacked.

5. Go to the clearing in the woods. You’ll find Kyle with Tom, who’s pushing a skewer through his hand for pain threshold testing. As Jenks leaves, he’ll find a car key fob on the ground.


6. Go behind the Brenden house to the driveway and use the key fob to open the car door. Jenks will find a check for £500 from Ryan to Kate.


7. Paul says he doesn’t know much about the check. Go back to Ryan and ask him about the poppy pods, Prime Candidates, and the check. He tries to put suspicion on Simon for Kate’s death. He also claims the check was an incentive to keep Kate from leaving Atlas. That’s a contradiction!

“Ryan said that students aren’t bribed or coerced in any way.”
“Ryan said R money was meant as a “little” incentive for Kate.”


Ryan claims the money was part of Kate’s assessment, to see how she would react.

Your progress should now be at 89%.

8. Another contradiction!

“Ryan gave Kate ╬ô├╢┬╝Γö£Γòæ500 to test her response, as part of her assessment.”
“Ryan said students aren’t tested.”


Ryan gets angry and admits that he did ask Simon to test Kate.

Your progress should now be at 93%.

    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!
