Adventure Game Hints

Illustrations by Nolan Worthington
The section tells how to find the place where each footnote is referenced in the game. Once again, you shouldn't develop this section until you finish, because it will probably ruin some puzzles for you.

Footnote 1: RELAX or ENJOY THE DARKNESS in Dark.

Footnote 2: Refer to your home as a HOUSE while talking to Ford.

Footnote 3: Upon arrival at the Presidential Speedboat.

Footnote 4: Listen to the music in the Pub several times, until "Hey Jude" is the song that is playing.

Footnote 5: Remove the towel in the Beast's Outer Lair after the Beast has gone to sleep.

Footnote 6: Type FOOTNOTE without any number after it to see where this footnote is referenced.

Footnote 7: Shoot the Beast three times with the anti-Beast gun.

Footnote 8: Consult the Guide about fluff.

Footnote 9: Get the Guide entry on SPACE by having the Guide with you when you're blown out of the Airlock.

Footnote 10: When the game finally gives in and describes the Engine Room.

Footnote 11: This footnote is not referenced anywhere in the game.

Footnote 12: This footnote is referenced only by itself.

Footnote 13: Push the boat's autopilot button three times.

Footnote 14: When Ford hands you the Guide in the Vogon Hold.

Footnote 15: Read the banner at the Dais.
