Second Floor Adventures and Key Findings

  2. Set the time: Look at the clue on the wall behind you. You’ll see three clock hands labeled “Henry,” “Mildred,” and “Scott,” which correspond to hours, minutes, and seconds. To set the clock, stand next to it and open your inventory to select and use the Clock Key. Adjust the clock’s time to 9:10. If you’ve set the right time, you should hear a clicking sound. Inspect the right side of the clock to push it out of the way, then bravely enter the opening.

Turn West at the end to pick up a key that was previously out of your reach: the ‘Fire Escape Key.’ With this key in hand, head to the nearest room (Room 303). While there, grab the ‘First-Aid Kit’ off the table and ‘Handgun Bullets’ from the bedroom. Don’t forget to swing by the kitchen and grab another ‘Health Drink.’
