Where We Remain Walkthrough

1. Whatís the goal of this game?
-- Check the letter on the ground below and to the left of your starting position.
-- Itís to find the girl you named at the start of the game, who is in one of the caves on the island.

2. Arrgghhgh these monsters keep eating me!
-- The monsters on the island overworld donít move in predictable ways, but there are definitely ways to avoid them.
-- Each monster has a kind of radar that senses you once youíre within its range. When this happens, the screen flashes red to let you know youíre in trouble, and the monster begins moving directly for you.
-- Once a monster is chasing you, itís possible to get them to stop. (See the question about escaping monsters below.)
-- But really, youíre better off avoiding them if you can. (See the question about avoiding monsters below.)

3. Is it possible to escape a monster thatís chasing me?
-- Yes.
-- With some fancy footwork, you can actually keep it at bay, but itís tricky to pull off and you need lots of room to maneuver.
-- A more permanent solution is to go into a cave. The monster will then give up and wander away.
-- Itís also possible to put enough distance between you and the monster that it loses sight of you. You can get away with this mainly by running out of a monsterís territory ó each monster can only travel across half of the island.
-- There is another way involving the marble shrines you may have found on the island. See the question below about them for more information.

4. Is it possible to keep monsters from chasing me in the first place?
-- Yes.
-- Mainly, by keeping your distance from them.
-- There are some cues that can help you figure out how close you are to a monster.
-- First of all, the wind noises you hear will grow louder as you get closer.
-- As you start to get very close to the edge of a monsterís perception, the world will turn darker, like a thunderstorm is coming.
-- There is another way to avoid monsters using the marble shrines on the island. See the question below about them for more information.
-- The crystal ball will show you the monstersí exact position on the island, too.

5. Can I kill these monsters or what?
-- Yes.
-- But only when youíre playing on the expert difficulty.
-- Search all of the caves on the island carefully.
-- Even after you find your girl.
-- Thereís another girl on the island that will grant you this power.

6. Whatís the point of the flowers?
-- Try finishing the game once.
-- They make the girl youíre trying to find happy.
-- They also protect you from the red ghosts in the caves.
-- When a red shade touches you, you lose a certain number of flowers (depending on the difficulty level). If you donít have any flowers at all, you get booted out of the cave. Thatís annoying, isnít it?

7. Whatís up with the marble shrines on the island?
-- Do you notice what happened when you stepped onto a marble tile?
-- Do you notice what happened to the sound when you did this?
-- They protect you from the monsters.
-- While youíre standing on a marble tile, a monster will never start chasing you. Itís as if it canít see you at all.
-- This next part is pretty cool, so think carefully about reading onward.
-- If you touch a monster while itís standing on a marble tile, it will be banished away from you (hopefully far away), and you can move freely around its territory for some time.

8. How do I avoid the red ghosts in the cave?
-- Donít walk into them!
-- They move only when you do.
-- If you can trick one into walking into a crystal in the cave, it will evaporate harmlessly.
-- By the way, do you think they look familiar to you?

9. I found something that said ìYou feel displaceable.î What does that mean?
-- It means you can displace yourself.
-- Sometimes at great distances.
-- Try it out by holding down either the left and right arrow keys at the same time, or the up and down ones.
-- You can now teleport to a random spot on the island. Watch out, there are no guarantees that it will make you go somewhere safe.
When youíre in a cave, it teleports you out, so it saves you time collecting items.

10. I found something that said ìYou now know where to go.î What does that mean?
-- Youíll only see its effects once you leave a cave.
-- It shows you all the caves on the island. Youíve already visited the darker dots, but you havenít checked out the bright yellow ones.

11. I found something that said ìA warm, protective feeling washes over you.î And this meansÖ?
-- You can now survive one hit from a monster. Use it wisely!

12. I found something that said ìThe world becomes uncomfortably sharp.î What does that mean?
-- Theyíre glasses, right? They help you see.
-- More specifically, they help you read.
-- Have you finished the game with the glasses on? You may notice something different.
-- Try looking at a letter with the glasses on.

13. Is there any pleasing this girl?
-- She seems happy that youíre just there.
-- But she always seems to want more flowers, doesnít she?
-- If you meet her criteria, youíll receive a different message from her the next time you win.
-- But no, she always wants more flowers than you give her.
-- Even more flowers than ever exist in the game.

14. Can I ever escape this island?
-- Do you really want to?
-- You can.
-- But youíll have to be clever.
-- And maybe do some unpleasant things.
-- See the question below about endings for more information.

15. How do I find all three endings to this game?
-- The first ending is easy. Just find the girl.
-- The second and third endings require some lateral thinking to achieve.
-- One ending is best accomplished on beginner mode.
-- The other ending can only be found on expert mode.
-- One ending requires you to disobey.
-- The other requires you to apply powers youíve found in an unexpected way.
-- Have you found the girlís doppleganger? She only appears in expert mode.
-- What does she say the power she gives you will do?
-- Could you use it on something you might not expect it to work on?
-- Take a deep breath before going on. The rest of the clues will spell out exactly how to find each ending.
-- Try completing the game without ever collecting a flower.
-- Try touching the girl once you have the dopplegangerís power.
