      What are the codes for the electronic safes? Or how can I find them?

    • Ryan

      You skip a quest like the one in the apartment with all the missing items in it. That you have to return that the thief stole.

      The enemies you fought were shadows of a Doll, Find the doll, Break it’s face! and the shadows won’t be able to fight you

      It’s a mannequin monster you see later in the game. If you have the UV light you can see the \ghosts\ of her. If you searched hard enough you would have seen the mannequin herself.

      How can I find some money to use vending machine? My action level is easy, riddle is hard.

        Open any cash register to grab some quarters. Some won’t have any, the one in the store where you find a spare bulb will have a key, but for sure the one in the diner at the beginning has some and there are more next to a cash register in the movie theater.

      to answer your question:

      this is an excerpt from a gamer: \One misadventure that stuck with me involves Murphy exploring the basement of a random house. Entering via a window, Murphy is greeted only by the noise of soft sobs. Examining a nearby milk carton reveals an ad for a missing child, hinting at the origin of the haunting wails. After finding the rest of the basement locked off, Murphy follows the sound of TV static upstairs. Flipping the switch causes the TV set to short circuit and explode. The crying stops immediately. Traveling back downstairs, Murphy finds that the once locked door is now open. What happened next is one of the most disturbingly confusing moments I can remember in any horror game. A woman’s angry groans sound from the back of the pitch black room. Flicking on my flashlight reveals a shadow and nothing else. Suddenly something cracks Murphy over the head with an intimidating shout. I swing with futility at invisible enemies. How do you combat a ghost? I track the phantom’s shadow on the wall in order to gauge its location but can do little to fight it. Eventually I lose my nerve (and health), and decide a hasty retreat is in order. I’ll live to discover the truth behind this surprising paranormal occurrence at a later date.

        That freaked me out so bad when I played it. But the ghost attacking you was a monster (I don’t know exactly what) that came from a manniquin or however you spell that. I don’t understand what the house was for except I got a gun from the basement after the door was unlocked. I see this reply is almost a couple months late lol I hope you figured it out. Oh and you need a UV light to see the ghosts easier.

      what side quest is it where you enter a house through a basement window and you see the missing girl on the side of the milk carton?
