Introduction to the story
In the night Zak has a weird dream all about agyptian signs, a beautiful woman,
the Mars and aliens (the first and the second ones)
The next morning in Zak's Boss' Buero:
Zak and his Boss are having an argument over him not wanting to make up
stories anymore, so he ha s to find out what's going on around Mt. Rainer and the
Zak starts (t)his adventure in his room next to his bed (the first time I was
playing I thought he just woke up and is already dressed after waking up from
this weird dream) and just thinks: wow, what a crazy dream I had this night, I
have to draw the map I saw in my dream somewhere!
So look out for the plastic card
under the desk, the green thingy on the right
side, this is Zak's CashCard
, which is a VERY important item in this game, you
won't get anywhere without it so you have to get it now.
You can get the card
into your inventory by ripping
from the wall
next to the door and putting it under the card to get it out of there.
alternate strategy: You can also use the butterknife to scrap the card out,
you will get the knife in Zak's kitchen.
Now open the deskdrawer
and take the Kazoo
with you. Play it if you like.
Next thing to take with you is Sushi in the bowl
. Just take the bowl, it may
get wet in Zaks pockets but he can handle it. Under Sushi's Bowl is another
. Open it and take the phone bill
If you want you can turn on the answering machine
, but you don't have to. If
you do so there will be some fun messages on it later in the game.
Now leave Zak's room.
After the cutscene introducing your enemy in this game, the Aliens (the first
ones) you will find yourself in Zak's livingroom. Take the pillow
next to the
TV and plug the powerchord
into the fitting device
Now lift the other pillow
to find the TVs remote control
. Use the remote
on the TV
and see a well known dreamwoman on TV, and find out that she collects all kind of
artifacts in her mailslot. Well, okay then, let's search for an artifact and
we'll have a date with her. Oh, darn, the boss wants us to have a look at the
mysterious things happening at Mt. Rainer and the twoheaded squirrel.
So let's go on, walk to the sink, open the door
under it and take the yellow
. Out of the poor fridge
you need the egg
. What else?
Now just take the butterknife
and the small key
for the letterbox and we can
go out on the streets.
Lets walk to the left now and ring the bakery's bell
. With the stupid frenchie
not acting like we want him to, let's ring that bell once more
. Well, ring the
bell one more time
and pick up the bread
coming at you.
Now we enter the TCP Telephone company
and take the application
for the King's
fan club. Don't walk behind the counter, because under your flat there is the
headquarter of the Aliens, that want to turn the human race into stupid people
and are not amused when a stranger like Zak enters their headquater
Use the yellow crayon
to fill out the application
. As you already have the
yellow crayon in your hands let out all your artistic talent and skills and use
the yellow crayon
to draw the map you saw in your dream on the torn wallpaper
Now leave the telephone company and use the small key
to open up your letterbox
and stick the completely answered application
for the king's fan club into the
Now walk to the right until you can walk to the background, which leads to the
Enter the shop called Lou's Loans
, and start fullfilling your girlfriends wet
dreams, start with buying all the things you see, doesn't matter if you like
them or not.
Buy the golf club
, the toolkit
, the hat
, the false glasses with nose
and the divingsuit
Open the toolkit
and find out what nice and useful things you can find in
Walk to the end of the 14th street and get used to handling the wirecutter
using it on the bobby pinz sign
. Well, there you cutted off and took away that
Now get back to the 13th street, the one Zak lives in.
You sure have noticed the bus here! But you can't enter it because the
busdriver is asleep. So, let's wake him up. Play a nice melody on your kazoo
and he will wake up at once. You can try to play some heavy metal on your Kazoo
but Zak only knows one song.
Now enter the bus and pay with your cashcard
and let's go to the airport.
At the airport you give your Cashcard
to the devotee
guy and get a book
about true enlighning
(raising your consciousness and lowering your golfscores)
from him. You don't need a ticket by now, as you boss pays for your flight to
Seattle to Mt. Rainer, so enter the plane now.
Inside the plane
The Stewardess is coming and hands you your food in form of some peanuts
small bag and tells you where to sit.
About fucking time to do something!
But to be able to do something you first have to distract the stewardess that
is guarding the whole plane with her eagleeyes.
So, let's go to the toilet
at first at the back end of the plane. Use the
toilet paper in the sink
and clock it that way. Now turn on the water
the sink overflow. Call the Stewardess by pushing the callbutton
and now run to
the front end of the plane. Open the Microwave oven
and put in that egg
you just have to turn on the microwave oven
and you will have all the time you
need to do what you want to do and the stewardess won't interupt you anymore as
she is quite busy.
Take all the time you need to take the first seating cushion
and also the
that drops out once you lift the cushion. Now open all the luggage storages
above the passengers and in the last one (yeah sure,
always the last one, no matter what you do!) there is the oxygene tank
Now you can wait for the plane to land or if this takes too much time for you
(as for everyone else probably) you can press the two mouse buttons at once and
you will get the plane landed. The two mouse buttons are a standard command in Lucas
Film and in Lucas Arts games to skip cutscenes you already know or don't want to
see or for stuff like this.
Once the plane has landed and you didn't manage to do all the things mentioned
above or you just read them and didn't know about this you will be able to get
on the plane everytime you start another flight until you do all the needed
Once you reached the airport in Seattle you already leave this one and get to
Now you can do your first digital act of destroying nature. Pick up the branch
of the huge tree there.
The two headed squirrel
attacks you once you come close to it so tame it with
you got on the flight.
alternate solution: beat it to death with the branch or the golfclub or the
butterknife or anything else deadly.
Now we still need a story about the twoheaded squirrel, so, no matter if dead
or alive, dig your way through the huge pile of mud
with the butter knife
will ruin the knife that way, but other people will love it that way.
Alternative solution: use the golfclub or the branch or the bobbypinz sign to
dig, but that's not as good as is using the butterknife, you will see later on.
As it's very dark inside the cave we need a fire. If you killed the two-headed
squirrel you can just take it's nest
. In case you love digital animals all
that much get your nintendog tamagotchi now and play with it, pet it, take it
to bed with you and... no, wait forget it, they both are boring and suck, just
use the "what is" function and scroll around until you find the abandoned birdnest
The nest is at the beginning of the cave very high up. It's so high up,
you will need a large object to push it down like the golf club
or the bobby
pinz sign again.
You can also turn on the lighter
to find it even better.
Once you got the bird nest
, throw it into the firepit
together with the branch
tree in front of the cave and light it up with the lighter
Now there should be light. As there is light now you can see the strange yellow
markings on the wall. So play around with them, take your yellow crayon
connect the yellow dots
A secret door to an even more secret room will open up and you will gain
access to the very first artifact room in which you can find the mystic BLUE
But the Crystal is locked, so use your TV's remote control
to let the safety
thing open up and now take the Crystal
with you. Let's go back to the airport.
|San Francisco, CA
Here we want to get back home to San Francisco
