Why does the position of the pocket watch in the photo change randomly?

It changes almost every time you look at it. Does this have a deep meaning?

What I´m asking myself is, did Reyes and Delores go to school together? Because that´s what is implied when she looks at the picture. I don´t know how possible that is because I don´t know how old they are.

It seemed to me it depended on who was looking at it. I need to go back and double-check. I agree - it’s extremely suspicious, and it would not have been added if it didn’t have meaning. It does provide the “hey, you need the watch!” hint, but based on what I’ve read about Ron’s attitude about puzzles, they would not have put it in just for that reason.

The odd thing is: Later Delores says she does not remember going to school, when Chuck asks her about it.

Even more ironic is the fact that this happens in a dialogue that is all about plotholes.

It does not depend on who is looking at it. The dying rat in the Quickie Pal changes its position as well.

BUT… she remembers going to high-school with Leonard from QuickiePal.

Yes, but that makes sense. That would happen in the real world. A photo would not change in the real world (well, unless it was a digital photo frame, but those didn’t exist in 1987) :slight_smile:

That’s because Reyes’ father is alive. He lives in the textual adventure game. And can interact with the picture somehow…

Hi Zak, I really hope you didn´t just spoiler… I´m still not at the end…

No no, it’s just a theory :slight_smile:

You should really not be in this part of the forum if you want to avoid spoilers… Be careful.

uhm I should not be in “general”? I thought the development and maybe a little bit the hints section, too is for that.

I believe in one of the blog comments, Ron pointed out the “going to school together” was supposed to be cut and not in the final game

Good point - I didn’t realize this topic was under general, but still, general is a little vague - my advice still stands… be careful! I don’t want you to spoil your ending. It’s such an awesome game!

Ron said that is a legitimate mistake on their part. He said that on the blog.

The lines about going to school together was just a mistake, I think they have been remove in the latest patch.

Reyes move out when he was 5. he could not go to school with Deloris

Please do not “fix” too much, otherwise you end up like George Lucas.
