- Storyline items are highlighted by default, but you can change it the menu options.
- Remember that you cannot hold an item in your hand and open door at the same time. Sometimes, you will have to drop what you are holding to open a passage.
- Locations in the game are quite small. If you get lost, walk around the rooms and you will definitely find out where you are.
- The game is quite linear and the majority of doors and wardrobes are shut, so you shouldn't have any problems picking the correct route.
- The majority of puzzles can be solved by checking out your journal that you access by pressing J. Hints you find there should be helpful, even if they are a bit unclear.
- The lantern can attract monsters, so remember to turn it off occasionally, by pressing F.
- Blinking lantern is a signal that there is a threat nearby (malfunctioning lantern on the wall, electric discharges or monster)
- Before you die, you can withstand several blows (seven from weaker enemies and three from the strongest ones). Do not worry if you have taken one or two hits. The only effect will be darkening your vision.
- You can heal your character in the same way as in FPS games. Hide and wait until you regain your health.
- Do not worry if you will have to reload the saved game. You will be starting only a bit earlier.
