You are: Billy Candle
Main mission objective: You must reach a nearby town, called Hope. Once you're there, you will have to find a small farm that belongs to Thomas and Marisa
Difficult moments: I'm sure that you're going to have a huge problem with most of the enemies. You will have to escape from the main part of the town. You will be unarmed, so you won't have an opportunity to kill your adversaries. This is a first lesson that will teach you on how to sneak properly. Make sure that you understand this whole concept, as you will also have to stay in the shadows later during the game.
You start off in a small valley (#1). The game will display a lot of useful hints during most of these missions. Make sure that you read them all, as they will tell you a lot about moving your character of dealing with different kinds of problems. I will also explain all of this in this chapter of the guide. Start moving forward (#2). The game will suggest that you take a closer look at your compass. In most cases, it will be pointing your current destination, however you should know that for the most of the time you won't be able to reach it by moving in a straight line.
Once you've reached a small waterfall, head on to several small ledges. They will be located on your left. Make sure that you don't end up in the water, however it won't do you any harm. You will have to perform several small jumps along the way (#1). Make sure that you use the SPACE key. Turn left and head on to the new passageway. There's only one path here (#2), so you can't get lost.
You should make a few steps forward. Once you're there, an interesting cut-scene will appear on your screen (#1). You will have an opportunity to take a first look at the town of Hope. As you've probably suspected, you will have to slide down in order to reach it. DON'T make any sudden moves just yet. Wait for the game to display a new hint. You will have to use the S key while trying to perform these types of actions. At first, you should try and reach one of the platforms located on your right (#2).
Make sure that you observe your surrounding carefully. You will have be using the S key in order to reach most of the visible platforms. Additionally, you might want to consider saving your progress frequently. You will have to turn left at some point (#1). Make a small jump in order to get past a huge stone. Step up to the edge (#2) and start sliding down. Don't hit any of the nearby rocks!
Once again, you will have to get to the right side of this hill. Choose your platforms very carefully (#1). You will also have to watch out for all other objects. Hitting them will result in a loss of health. You will have to deal with several difficult slides here (#2). Make sure that you're using the S key all the time and you should be just fine.
You should be able to reach the ground level very soon (#1). I'd strongly recommend that you save your progress here, as you will be presented with a lot of new actions in a short while. Turn left and start moving towards a nearby farm (#2). A short cut-scene should appear on the screen very shortly. For the first time during the time, you will have to sneak in. Before you decide to proceed to your new destination, make sure that you read all hints that you've been provided with.
This time you will have to stick closely to what the game has to say to you. Thankfully, later during the game you will have more options. Start off by moving to a nearby tree (#1). It will be located on your left. You should try and learn some of the new moves. Make sure that you're using the CTRL key in order to move slowly. Additionally, you will be able to peek by using the Q and E keys. Finally, there's a very useful zoom feature. Press the X key in order to familiarize yourself with it. You will have to wait for a few seconds to make a move. Don't worry, the game will inform you about it (#2). Start moving towards the entrance of the farm.
Enter the farm. Make sure that you're crouching all the time. The most important thing here is to stay quiet. You also can't be seen by the farmer. Move closer to a small wagon (#1). This is very important because you will be able to observe a whole farm from here. You should be peeking a lot. Make sure that you read all additional hints. Once again, you will have to wait for the farmer to move to a correct spot. Start moving towards a small hut (#2). You could use the bushes, however this is not necessary at this point of the game.
Try moving closer to the small hut. You should be crouching all the time, so your steps won't be heard by anyone. Once you're there, turn right and wait for the farmer to make a move. He should start walking towards the entrance (#1). Turn left. You will have to reach the back of the hut (#2). Keep quiet, as this is not over yet!
Once again, you should be following most of the displayed instructions. You will have to pick up a large crate that's located by the wooden fence (#1). Press the F key. Be careful, though. The crate can't hit any other objects! This is very important!! Turn around SLOWLY. Now you will have to place the crate in a designated spot (#2).
Now you will have to press the SPACE key. Press this button again. You will have to reach the roof of the hut (#1). Additionally, you will have to press and hold the W (movement) key. You will be using these actions in the future. As a result, make sure that you read all hints very carefully. Once you've reached your destination, make a few steps forward. You will find a chest here (#2).
Open the chest. You will find a revolver inside (#1). Pick it up. You should also take some ammunition with you. Wait for the game to display some of the new hints. You should start off by reloading your weapon (press the R key). You may go back to the central part of the farm. Don't worry about the farmer (#2), as he won't be able to harm you in any way. You should also remember that you won't be allowed to take out any civilians.
The game will suggest that you practice a few shots here. You should be standing by a large barrel. Try and destroy all bottles (#1). I would recommend that you zoom in the view. This will help you to destroy all of these targets. Don't worry about the ammunition. You've got plenty of it, however you should leave at least 3-4 bullets for later. Once you've finished the training, head on to a small passageway (#2) that's located between wooden parts of the fence.
As you've probably noticed, you won't be able to move in a straight line. Thankfully, there's only one road here, so you can't get lost. Keep moving forward (#1). I would recommend that you ready your weapon. You are going to be attacked by a wolf in just a few seconds (#2). Start shooting at it. You should be moving backwards at the same time. Holster your weapon and proceed to the next section. Head on to the lower platform. The game should begin loading a new map very shortly.
