Contradiction – Spot the Liar!: Walkthrough Guide

Midnight, 93%:

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

1. If you ask Paul about Kate’s Prime candidacy, he’ll tell you to talk to Simon. So let’s do so. Simon says he doesn’t think Kate was Prime Candidate material. Emma says she thinks Kate was. Paul is lying! Here’s the contradiction:

“Paul explained that the CD playing in the room is part of the course.”
“Paul said they don’t use ‘threshold testing?'”


Paul kicks Jenks out and he bumps into Ryan on his way in. Jenks will overhear Paul telling Ryan to get rid of him.

Your progress should now be at 96%.

2. Go back to Atlas. The gate is locked now. So instead, head to the clearing in the woods. Jenks will spot Ryan and Kyle with some girl. Kyle has a knife to the girl’s throat and Jenkins makes him drop it.


3. Head over to Simon and ask him about Ryan’s accusations. He’ll show you how the tape on Kate’s driver’s license matches the tape that Ryan had given him. He says Ryan pushed Kate too far with the course and it got her killed. Then he runs off and disappears.

4. Emma doesn’t know anything about the the accusation or the patterned sticky tape. James thinks anyone is capable of murder and doesn’t recognize the tape.

5. Ask Rebecca about the tape. She says she knows Ryan has some because she borrowed it a few months ago. But claims she hasn’t seen it since then. She’s lying! Here’s the contradiction:

“Rebecca said she last saw the sticky tape about two months ago.”
“Rebecca taped over the broken window to make it safer.”


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

Congratulations! You solved the case! The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel, which I hope will actually happen. Also, notice the Satanic symbol at the end.

    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.

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

      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. :/

          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.

    “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!
