JessSomething Amiss Chapter 3At long last, after a year and a half of waiting, Tucker Bowen has released Something Amiss Chapter 3, the final installment of his truly excellent point-and-click adventure saga. This chapter finds the intrepid escaped test subject Alice back in custody, awaiting her fate at the hands of persons unknown. But you're not going to stand for that, are you? No, Alice has been through enough, and she's ready to take control of her own destiny. It's finally time to get some answers!

The JIG community really loved the first two chapters of Something Amiss, and in light of this I am especially tickled to report that the third (and, sadly, final) episode is by far the best. It's clear why Tucker took over a year to complete this chapter; the game is a truly well-developed adventure, one that will take Alice through a dizzying array of different environments, enmesh her in intrigue and finally reveal the true nature of the mysterious experiment that so irrevocably changed her life. While happily quite long, the game never drags; the puzzles tread a fine line between creativity and logic, resulting in a satisfying experience that will challenge, but not confound, the player.

As in the first two installments, the interface is controlled by the cursor. To interact with a person or item, simply click and hold in the appropriate spot; a small menu will appear with options to talk to, examine or take him/her/it. You'll collect a large and diverse inventory of items while playing, a number of which will be used in several different ways during the course of the game. While the ways in which items are utilized might be questionable in the real world, they are never so outlandish as to necessitate a seemingly random "leap of logic"; I deeply appreciate this. Also like the previous chapters, Tucker has created some wonderful animation to bookend the game. This lends a unique style to the production, further enhancing the experience provided by an already very well-made game.

The game is not perfect, though. The plot does become a bit convoluted; so much is introduced and so many twists thrown in that at times it seems overworked. I didn't entirely understand how Alice's new abilities (which I will refrain from explicitly mentioning so as to not spoil the surprise) meshed with the events of the story. To be frank, however, I'm having a tough time coming up with much to complain about. Tucker took his time creating a polished game, and was clearly thoughtful in the choices he made.

While I'm truly sad that Something Amiss has come to an end, I am seriously excited to see what Tucker comes up with next. Over the weekend I replayed chapters 1 & 2 before tackling number 3, and doing so gave me a deep appreciation of Tucker's evolution as a designer; the dramatic growth and improvement over the three episodes is really pretty remarkable. If this is any indicator of his talent and potential, we have some fantastic games to look forward to in the future.

The hour has come to learn the truth:

The second game has been removed from the site. Without the password from the second, the third one is not playable.

It'd be better if the developers made sure they can host all three games simultaneously before making them depend on each other. Otherwise they force players to hunt for passwords off-site (thanks JIGuest!).

Also, the developer's hint page that JIG uses as its sole "walkthrough" for 1-2 gives a 404 Not Found error.

@aine morgan and thecrwth:

to pick things up, click and hold down your mouse. a little menu will pop up on the item. the action items chance slightly depending on what the item is, but generally the first action on the left is either to talk to or eat the object, then on top you can examine the object, then on the right there is a little hand that will pick up the object.

pressing "e" will take you to the main menu, and you can go to the "help" section (not "hints!") The help menu will give you basic info on the game play.

I still have some unused items, most notably

I don't have time to replay right now, but it seems like there might be multiple endings.

I really liked this game. I could do without her yawning, though. Also, I found the ending a bit unsatisfying. Maybe because it was

so pro covert government ops.

. Just a personal bias of mine. Also, it bothered me that sometimes dialogue options would disappear before I had a chance to use them. But I guess that increases the replay value.

I am near the end

on top of the train. While I was climbing the ladder to the top, my anti-malware went off and it didn't finish loading. Now when I load my game, I am on top of the train, the only things I can see is the metal surface I am on and Alice, and the tunnel is black and white shapes flying by. I can't go anywhere or do anything but walk around. I am guessing I need to restart, but is the ending worth it?

Ogremindes -- you're talking about the

password for the Jefferson Monument, which comes from the quote in the jail?

I confess I looked it up offline too, but

if you go to the steps of the Jefferson Monument, you'll see the end of the quotation, including the key word. So it's fair; you can find the password without using outside information.

Seems kind of sloppy to have the password be a word from the quote on the monument, but the secret super ops people don't seem to run a very tight ship in this game. ;-)

I really love this series -- the puzzles are pretty easy, but the atmosphere of all the different areas is breathtaking. But what's a New York subway sign doing in the DC Metro?

Even with a decent broadband connection, you still end up watching the loading screen longer than playing the game. This is especially true when you've made your way to one scene and simply need to return to another scene (which is a few scenes back) to collect something you forgot, or didn't realize you needed. It spoils the flow of the game. Surely once a scene is loaded it should stay in the browser's cache?
Or perhaps there should be a downloadable version.

Firefox retains the rooms in your browser's cache, so you'll only have to load it once. This may not be true for other browsers. So I recommend Firefox and at least Flash 8 to get the best playing experience. A downloadable version of the game may be available in the future once I'm sure all the kinks have been worked out.

Thanks for playing.

I loved this series. Every puzzle had a logical solution, the graphics were amazing, the difficulty was just right and the story was intriguing. The only problems I had were long load times and the occasional bug, but they are but pebbles sitting in the shadow of a monolith constructed of the good qualities of the series.

It made me want to go back and play the Quest games (Space Quest and King's Quest).

I'm on broadband using Firefox and this game still lags for me, even when, like a previous poster pointed out, I'm returning to a scene I've already been. I've got a bandwidth monitor on and I can see my bandwidth spiking every time this happens so I am literally reloading the page, not just seeing the load animation. I've also timed out a couple of times while waiting for the game to load. It has to be server side because I am not lagging on any other site.

Load times might increase if the server is really busy. In a few days when traffic dies down I bet it will be faster.

Also, I'll post here when the downloadable version is ready. That'll help people with long loading times.

Hello everyone, new memeber here. Though not new to this wonderful website. First of all jay, this wonderful website without a doubt, is my Bible to all the point click games my heart desires. I've been waiting for chapter 3 forever. I'm almost afraid to play it, for the fear that it'll be over soon. So here goes. And job WELL DONE!

Wonderful story! I played all three in one sitting (and neglected making dinner, but oh well).

I noticed the yawning only happened if she did something that didn't progress the game. It's like the opposite of the fist pump when she solves something.

I find it intriguing that there's a book based off of this. From looking at it on Amazon, it's similar, but the lead character appears older and married.

I can't find the

and my game doesn't load. I get to a certain point and it says "game loading", and all I get is a black screen and sound of wind blowing. What should I do? This is after I put in the password

Am \I missing some software or what? Or is it just the traffic?

Make sure you have the latest version of Flash. (at least 8) And I recommend the Firefox browser as well. I've never had any problems with that configuration.

Hello there. I did everything, but

before meeting the federal agent I went to the obelisk and no one was there. I went to the train station and downloaded data from the slot guarded by the lasers. Then I went back and gave the USB drive to the federal agent. Now I return to the train station and there is no train!

What should I do? Can anyone help me? Thanks!

@Donkit
Sounds like a glitch in the system. To get past it I would recommend replaying and...

after you get the data from backscatter's underground HQ go directly to the Jefferson monument and talk to the agent. Then go to the Washington monument...you should see lots of police activity around it.

I'll investigate to see whether the glitch is an isolated one or not.

Problem!

After

doing the thumbdrive and talking to John

my game refreshed for some reason (probably something I did).

I never got to

complete the call and it doesn't ring anymore

And I have no idea what to do from here. Help?

I suggest using the walkthrough and try the next step. If it doesn't work, you probably need to re-start your game.

Thanks Pam I'm out now! I restarted the game because

I'm not sure whether I turned the environmental control off again the first time, like it said in the note. I couldn't get back to the shelter to check. In the re-run I made sure I did and the electricity worked!

Is this a glitch?

Tucker Bowen, Something Amiss is something else. It is one of the best point click games out there. I finished playing the game. And yes the problem was the flash player.

Pleasse give us more point click games. I can't wait for your new games to be released.
Good luck with your future prpjects.

ok folks I am still confused with the end of the game, even after reading the walkthroughs...

When going to the washington monument, down the elevator, and to the train...I don't see a train!! and where's the ladder?? And I read in the comments , that u have to take out the thumbdrive from the data port to reveal a ladder, but the guy in the trenchcoat has the thumbdrive!!

Please help me I don't want to start over if I don't have too.

I've located a small bug at the end of the game.

For a small number of players, the train at the end departs early, allowing Auburn to escape! I believe I fixed this. If you go directly to the Washington Monument bunker after handing over the thumbdrive to the Feds, you should be able to catch her now.

Unfortunately, if you've encountered this bug before I fixed it, you'll have to play through the game again from the beginning.

I accomplished almost every step on my own.

Where I stuck and had to see the walkthrough is point 21. How do you know what the codeword is?? I couldn't figure it out, and I haven't seen it anywhere...

Hi Bosco,

The codeword is something to do with the Jefferson Memorial. Look around the columns to see if you can find anything. Maybe something carved into the wall?

Thanks Tucker!
I was a noob :)

Anyway, it was a brilliant game. I guess the best, I've ever seen in flash, in many points of view (eg story/ control/ graphics/ trailer/ overall-feeling).

I'm always wondering if such a complex work is worth involving the time and efforts to give it to the public for free. But I am glad about it.

Congrats to everyone who participated!

Monty,
If you didn't give your game a name in the beginning it'll show up as blank when you try to save later. If this isn't the culprit try upgrading to the latest version of Flash or try another browser.

Good game, graphics are very well done. Storyline is compelling.
For a PAC: 9/10! Kudos to the makers.

Okay I'm SUPER annoyed now, so after my last post about getting stuck from a buggish thing I give up on this game for a good three months. So yesterday I go through it and get a little further than where I left off, saving under a different account name, but hey, it was working. So today when I go to finish the game I started yesterday to finish is gone and I'm left with the bugged game. HEEELLPP! I SO do not feel like starting this game YET AGAIN.

There is a known bug that occurs when you're in a conversation with another character and then quit the game (or press a key to go to the menu). If that happens the game gets corrupted sometimes.

You're best bet is unfortunately to start a new game. To avoid this, always finish a conversation before saving or quitting.

If you keep getting thrown back into your old frozen game, try emptying your cache before starting a new one.

I'm trying to fix the bug. Thanks for your patience!

This really is an amazing game! I had not too much trouble with the bugs, and really really enjoyed it! Congratulations!
One thing: I would have loved to be able to ask all the possible questions.
And I looooooved the ridiculous answers when you try talking to things, or banging them up.

I have just found this game and have thoroughly enjoyed playing it but, can't seem to finish it.
When I meet the indian at the top of the cliff I try to turn the circuit box back on and it says it trips immediately.
Also when I try to kiss the indian it says not until the third date?
Help please?

To Clair:

It's been awhile since I played this game. If you haven't used the walkthrough at the top of this page yet, the part you're on starts around step #90.

If I remember correctly,

you don't have to successfully kiss the Indian... just make the attempt. And you sometimes have to come back and do the breaker box a second time.

I hope this helps. :)

What a great story!!
A fascinating story like this one is what's missing in almost all point and click adventures.
When I met John, I really wasn't sure anymore who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. Even now, at the end, I'm not completely sure I did the right thing.
One really gets INVOLVED in the story, and it's the first time I experienced that with a simple point-and-click game. Talking to characters often seems silly, but in this game, it wasn't.
Thanks!! Keep up the good work!

You have to turn off the water that runs through the pipes first. Otherwise, the circuit will keep tripping. Remember, you can always look at the hints in the game menu if you get stuck! Good luck.
