On this page of our Call of the Sea game guide, we provide a walkthrough for the first gameplay stage, the Prologue - A Family Heirloom. We have listed all the interactions necessary to complete the objectives on the ship and reach the jungle.
This page only contains the walkthrough of the Prologue - a Family Heirloom. You'll find the secrets and puzzle solutions on separate pages of our guide:
The game starts with a short underwater sequence. As the character is simply dreaming, you don't need to worry about running out of oxygen or any other dangers.
Keep in mind that your character will swim in the direction the camera is facing. As a result, it's easy to bump into rocks or other obstacles. However, the character will be fine and she will continue her journey as usual once she gets free from between the obstacles.
Your task is to keep moving forward until you reach the end of the cave. On your way, you will see various objects that don't match the underwater landscape, such as picture frames or a chessboard. However, you can't investigate these objects. Still, the character will comment on them in an attempt to understand what is happening.
To free yourself from this nightmare, you need to reach the music box placed on the chair. When you reach out to grab it, the woman will wake up.
Upon waking, the character will reveal that it wasn't the first time she experienced such a nightmare. She's been having them for a while. She will draw your attention to the state of her hands. This is a key plot element to keep in mind.
Start by putting on the gloves to help your character feel more comfortable. They are found on the desk, between the journal and the suitcase.
You won't be leaving the cabin without them.
Another item of significance is Norah's journal. It's an important part of the gameplay mechanics. It's where your character describes the surrounding world, but also the secrets and puzzles she encounters.
The final item of note is the key. It's found in the suitcase. You will need the correct code to open it. For the solution to this puzzle, check out the following page - Chapter 1 - A Family Heirloom - The code to the suitcase.
After opening the suitcase, take a closer look at the picture on the left. Pick it up and flip in your hands. On the back of the photo, you'll find a key that you need to take with you on the expedition.
Once you have gathered these items, you can leave the cabin and proceed to Chapter 1 - 74 Miles East of Otaheité.
