Walkthrough please :)


This game requires the Unity plugin, if anyone's having trouble loading it in Chrome, Edge, Opera, or Firefox v53 or higher. You're limited to either Safari or IE in the near term.

I can't be bothered to get Unity installed on Chrome, so I wrote this walkthough based on the downloadable demo, which I believe has exactly the same gameplay. The walkthrough skips over all the optional dialogue and items, so you'd still enjoy the game best by exploring for story and humour.

The Darkside Detective (Case 01: Malice in Wonderland)

    Controls: Point and click, click to advance dialogue.
    Starting the game: Wait for the title to fade out. Click on the desk area (Casebook) to start, click on Case 01 and then Yes.

  1. Outside - Click on the door (Go Inside).

  2. Living Room - Click on Mr Jones, and ask "Where were you last night?" This gives you matches. Click on the door (Hallway).

  3. Hallway - Click on the left door (Study). It's locked. Click on the middle door (Closet).

  4. Closet - Click the box of junk. This gives you the blacklight bulb.

  5. Click the door (Hallway), then click on the right door (Living room), then click on the stairs.

  6. Upstairs - Click on the left door (Master Bedroom).

  7. Master Bedroom - Click the bed. This gives you the strange page.

  8. Click on the nanny and choose "Say, you're the nanny..." (You need to have tried the study door already.) This gives you the study key. Click the door (Leave), then click the right door (Daughter's Bedroom).

  9. Daughter's Bedroom - Click the pens on the drawer. This gives you the marker.

  10. Click the door (Leave), then click on the stairs, then click on the door (Hallway), then drag the study key to the left door.

  11. Study - Click the lantern on the bookshelf. This gives you the lantern.

  12. Click the door (Hallway), then click the right door (Living room), then click the stairs, then click the rope above the telephone (Attic).

  13. Attic - Click the can next to you. This gives you the paint thinner.

  14. Drag the blacklight bulb over the broken lamp on the floor.

  15. Drag the strange page over the darkside doorway.

  16. Drag the 3 matching symbols from the top over the darkside doorway.

  17. Drag the matches over the lantern.

  18. Drag the lit lantern over the darkside doorway.

  19. Talk to Jenny. At the end of the conversation, ask "What about Dooley?"

  20. Drag the paint thinner over the doorway.


I can't get it to play in IE at all.

Who designs a game that can't be played in popular browsers?
