1x01 - Force Majeure
The first chapter of the game should be considered as a tutorial, especially while you're still in the jungle. Once you've talked to Kate and completed your first flashback scene, you will be allowed to go to the main crash site which will be located at the beach. You will have to assist some of the survivors there by completing your first mini-game. The main objective for this episode will be to find a backpack which belongs to the main character.
Jungle - Starting Area
You will have to wait for the main character to regain consciousness. Once this is done, you should be able to notice that you're standing somewhere in the jungle. It would be a good idea to practice some of the basic moves here, including walking and examining objects. You can move by pressing the movements keys. Additionally, you can order your character to start running by holding the SHIFT key. You might want to consider examining a plane seat (screen). This can be done by pressing the SPACE key. Each time you will be given a short description of an object. I'll do my best to give you the exact locations of these types of objects later during the course of the game. Sadly, you won't be allowed to pick them up, so it's all optional.
You may start moving forward, because you won't find anything of interest here. You'll also be surrounded by bushes and trees, so you won't be allowed to deviate from the main path. Once you've reached a new area, turn left and keep heading forward (screen). You will notice a dead passenger and the game will reward you with an interesting cut-scene. Also, here's where you'll be given your first quest.
QUEST 1: Find help!
Examine the body if you want to, however this is optional.
You may proceed to your right. You should be able to notice that an injured woman is standing here. Try talking to her by pressing the ENTER key. As a result, you will trigger a weird vision. Thankfully, you will find out more about her later during the course of the game. You might want to consider opening your inventory. Choose MY MEMORY and read the text. You can do this at any time and obviously the main character will add new thoughts to his diary each time he's discovered something important. Head on to a new location. You should be able to find a shoe along the way. Ignore it, because you won't have to examine it. Kate should be standing just around the corner (screen). Try talking to her by pressing the ENTER key (Talk to Kate action).
As you've probably noticed, you can choose between four main options, however only two of them are active at this time. You will be allowed to choose questions from two separate groups. General questions allow you to find out more about other survivors or the island itself and they won't help you to solve the main quests. You will be able to ask Kate several questions from this group:
- Are you okay?
- Who are you?
The Quest category is much more important. You will have to ask these questions in order to be able to move on. You can ask them in any order. Here are the questions:
- Where's the plane?
- I need a doctor.
- I think my memory's gone.
Kate will give you a water bottle. Once you've asked her all three questions, you will be given an opportunity to participate in your first flashback scene.
