<3 Shai-Hulud.


#563

I just sold the glowing gem for his highest bid (425 as I found after the first try).


#564

Cool - long as you didn’t go past his third offer I think that’s okay.


#565

I did the first time but then I reloaded, so I guess that was just the correct amount.

No idea what to do with all that now, though. I can´t just take on any of the junk he offers me, right?


#566

You need specific things but I’m not sure how much it matters if you overspend. Not clear in the walkthroughs. So I could just tell you what to buy?


#567

I think I bought everything I could buy (which are the items he holds up: the Thermounderwear, the chickenhead and the Orat on a stick) all this awarded me points so it can´t have been wrong!

But then this happened:

I wasn´t fast enough to figure out exactly what to do here, but I have a feeling I reached the correct place:


#568

Oh cool, that’s right.

Yep, that’s one way (there are two). I remember doing it that way even though you get fewer points and it’s more difficult!

I’m got a date with ER, so I’ll check back later.


#569

Oh think it just seems to be the closest at that moment?

Which way is the other way?

:scream:

Oh you mean the show! :relieved:


#570

Humph, push the robot is no option (seemingly) and those neat hooks aren´t visible to the parser (at least not as “hooks”).


#571

I think ‘hook’ should be fine. It doesn’t work every time though - it’s a timing thing.


#572

No it was the generic “I don´t know what you are talking about” phrase of the parser I think. Let me try again.

Yeah, this one:


#573

Maybe try ‘pulley’?

Also:
You’re not in the right position.
You need to do it at the right time.


#574

See, now we´re getting somewhere!


#575

Hah!

Once I knew the correct term, it wasn´t that hard! :blush:

You can reveal the alternate solution now.

And I got a rad new item now! :grin:

grafik

Now you see me! Now you DON´T! :see_no_evil:

Since I´m assuming I´m done on this planet (?)

I have two possible destinations now.

  • Monolith Burger
  • Planet Ortega (which thanks to the underwear should be safe now)

What would be more advisable?


#576

It was to lure him to those hanging bug things and watch them eat him, heheh.

Go treat yourself to a burger :wink: you’ll need it to psyche yourself up for another annoying quicktime event…


#577

Damnit, Scotty first the moustache and now you´re ordering the supersize menu AGAIN?


#578

Mhhhhh. :hamburger: :fries: :green_salad: :cup_with_straw:

It´s that arcade game, isn´t it? :weary:


#579

Afraid so, Moo-moo.

What meal did you order by the way?


#580

I think the regular Monolith Burger with a drink and all the extras.

With so many choices and no hint what to order, does it matter?


#581

Yes, I think it does. Unless you acquired something from the meal you bought?
