PenanceCreated by Paul Wagstaff of Australia during his education in multimedia and interactive design, Penance is an escape-the-room type point-and-click adventure set in a purgatorial train station. The object of the game is to figure out why you are there and how to leave.

As with other games of this type, navigate by moving the mouse toward the edges of the game window. The cursor will change to an arrow indicating movement in that direction is possible.

As you explore the boundaries of the station, you will find items to examine when the cursor changes to a magnifying glass. Other items can only be found by solving a puzzle. Some puzzles require you to type on the keyboard, using all lowercase. Look around for clues that can provide you with answers to the questions asked of you.

Penance is a gloomy game, one that deals with mature themes such as drugs and murder. It is not for everyone, and yet it is indeed fun and challenging to play. It is a critical thinking person's game about suffering and atonement, and one in which your answers will ultimately affect the outcome. Click.

Anyone want to point me in the right direction? So far I got (put under spoiler to be very, very safe):

The porno from the bathroom, the first four rooms, I've seen the two first newspapers, I touched the light and the demon thing came, and I fixed the circut puzzle with the circles.

Help? Hints? Suggestions?

Did I lose an item?

I picked up the coins, and it seems to be missing from my inventory when I go to the inverted pentagram. So far, I'm guessing the other items are as follows:
Trophy - Pride
Contract - Sloth
Knife - Wrath
Photos - Envy
Finger - Gluttony
Porn - Lust
And I thought Greed would be the coins, bu t they don't appear.

Thanks for any help you can offer ^^

when Brian talks to you on the phone, you can answer pretty much whatever you want. Just make sure everything is in lower cases. The photos are hidden in the right side lower conner of the pay phone (but first you need to complete your conversation with Brian)

ok, I'll try my best to help you.

Are you typing back to Brian? Once you got him on the pay phone, he will ask a series of questions. You need to click in the box and respond to his questions. There is no fixed answer. You can say whatever you'd like. After you finish talking with him, a box will pop up to tell you that the pictures are next to the phone. Only after this will you be able to find the pictures.The photos are really well hidden. Look on the lower right side conner of the pay phone. It looks like a shadow, but once your mouse is close you will see it. Advice: don't start getting crazy. Its just a game. Instead of ending on a mental institution, you might end up in a pulgatory ;)

question about ending...
when talking to the clerk...


first i said hello. then when he asked if i knew where i was i said 'purgatory'. he said yes and said because i didn't seek to repent i was going to the city of 'din' or something like that. then i got on the hellbound train. is there any other way to answer the clerk that would lead to another ending, or is all of it tied up with brian and the phone conversation?

I've been playing it a couple of times and keep getting the bad ending.
I believe it's the conversations that hold the key to the good ending.

You can tell the husband that his wife is in

'heaven' or 'hell'

But I don't know if it has a consequence either way?
But what do you tell Brian, so he won't be mad?
first time you can answer

'yes' or 'no'

second time everything seems to upset him.
To the clerk I just said

'hello'
the first time, and next time I said

'purgatory'

Is this right?

Ugh, I can't seam to get past the horribly written dialog and barely legible font size of the game.

It makes it very hard to get into the game when you have to pause and translate the text into readable English. Doesn't help for the game to refer to the player as both "You" and "I" in the same sentence either...

It was an ok game, overall. I have to agree that the incredibly small font made it so hard to read. I had to put my face very close to the monitor to read stuff like the newspapers, the questions, etc. What's made it even harder was that the letters were narrow, so they tended to squish together.

I got the bad ending because I didn't give Brian the right replies. I'll play it again next time, but not too soon since it took me forever to get the stupid circuit puzzle.

A few hints on how to figure out where you are (think Dante):

The quote at the front gates when you first start the game.

Then the books on the floor of one of the hallways. When you click on each, you get a description of all the circles of Hell, plus Limbo and Purgatory.

Finally, there is a subway map where each stop appears to be one of the circles.

If you keep getting the bad ending, remember the name of this game. You are a murderer. You have comitted sins. If you don't repent, you will go to Hell (the bad ending). If you need more, here be specifics:

To get the good ending (go to Heaven (the white light)), you need to repent (say you're sorry) and ask forgiveness (these you do when Brian, your victim, confronts you), and acknowledge your sins (to the ticket man, when he asks you your sins (envy and greed).

I just figured two things out.

1. Don't guess the clerk's answers if you have no clue at all. After so many times wrong, the game has an error and you have to close the game.

2. A lot of people are heaving trouble with the text parts. So here:

3 button one: read it backwards and answer backwards; still stuck?

I'm not telling you them backwards, but forwards they are 1. fishing 2. yes 3. where is the wife

man: the backwards answer from the 3 button one; write it forwards

backwards it is nevaeh even though it looks like neweh

phone: Say anything at the first two. At the third part which is about vengence...well, what do you say when you do something wrong? I'm not telling you this one, it's easy.
clerk (probably is God since he expects you to know who he is): how do you greet someone? (clue: where Satan lives, add an 'o'); next is where are you; did you look at the map? you're not in heaven yet, but you're not in hell either; then when asked about your sins (only if you did the phone part right), well, this is where mine messed up, but I believe that you tell him what it is called when you want more (no 'y') the word 'and' then how you feel about people with stuff you want

hello; purgatory; greed and envy

Perhaps it is just me, but the pentagram seems to require a pattern to be solved, but no one else seems to have had a problem discovering it...

Anyone care to clue me in? Thanks.

Dana - it's an excellent question. I have to admit that I relied on a spoiler for help with that part of the puzzle, and I believe I even remember reading somewhere that Paul admitted that the solution to that one was indeed a bit vague and might have been developed a bit better than it was.

Clues about the pentagram can be found if you click left of it. They are vague, but there they are.

I got the good ending saying this to Brian at the phone:

first I answer: YES
and then I say: FORGIVE ME and Brian tells me that he forgives me as he has also did horrible sins and he does not want me to suffer the same fate as he did

I can't seem to input anything. I can type the responses to the questions, but I can't get the game to respond to them. Is there a button to click, or does everyone else just press enter (which doesn't seem to work for me)?

I don't see why questions continue. Almost everything is given away in the game. The circuit breaker problem, how to get a good ending, where to find everything, and the daemon puzzle (which is where I got stuck). The only question not answered is how to solve the pentagram puzzle (I got the solution for that problem from here as well). They give the solution but not how to figure it out. So, anyone know how to figure it out?

I'm not sure if anyone noticed, but beside the pentagram puzzle, on the left, you van read something that sort of explains where to put stuff. Although I'm sure you all saw.

The game was a bit creepy, but I was fine with that. It's too bad the items couldn't stand out more, in particular

the chewed finger and coins

in my case. I also dislike how, when telling the husband about his wife,

his second question is phrased in such a way that 'yes' or 'no' could be taken to mean 'yes/no, she did not kill the baby' yet only 'no' will give you the good ending. If the question was 'Did she kill the baby?' as opposed to 'So she didn't kill the baby?' (or something along those lines), the answer 'no' would clearly be correct.

Well, that's my beef. Otherwise, interesting game.
