This guide provides detailed instructions on navigating the Dining Room in “Alone in the Dark”. In this scenario, the room houses five hungry zombies. The directions below offer two strategies: feeding the zombies or fighting them.
Step-by-Step Dining Room Guide
1. Feeding The Zombies
If you choose to avoid conflict, the pot of soup from the kitchen can serve as a distraction. Follow these steps:
Placing the Pot of Soup
Position yourself at the table and place the pot of soup. The moving zombie will cease its approach and sit down. The remaining zombies will not move.
Leaving the Room
Once the zombies are pacified, you’re free to leave the Dining Room. Be aware that even though the zombies are now calm, they will attack if provoked.
2. Fighting The Zombies
Alternatively, you can choose to eliminate the zombies. Here is the process:
Zombies will attack one by one, making them manageable to kill. Dispatch them using your preferred weapon—the sword is a suggested option.
Shooting Strategy (Optional)
If you decide to use bullets, keep in mind that shooting seated zombie results in immediate death, while a moving zombie requires two shots. To conserve ammo, aim for the zombies still seated.
Once the zombies are handled, whether by feeding or fighting, you can exit the room through the standard doors (not the double doors).
3. Quick Action Preparation
In your progress, opt for the door next to the shelf on the right. Be ready to act swiftly after you pass through the door and into the smoking room.
