225 - Read NOTE, check TICKET BOOTH


You read the NOTE pinned to the GIFT SHOP DOOR. To sum up: the door is locked until the Haunted House's management can ensure nothing... "dangerous" is still posing a problem. It is signed by MAJOR JOHN SINGLETRON MOSBOT, "THE STEEL GREY GHOST." His signature includes the nickname, in quotes.

After ensuring the CONFEDERBOT behind the counter truly is offline, you vault over and check out the area back there. A LOCKED DOOR is encountered but, being locked, doesn't really prove very useful. A few other ITEMS of INTEREST catch your EYE. A BROOM, a DUSTPAN, several DIRTY RAGS, a SPRAY BOTTLE, some PENCILS, a FLASHLIGHT (with BATTERIES), a LIGHTER, a BAG OF POPCORN, a BAG OF PRETZELS, and a COLONEL FERRIS MUG.

THE AFOREMENTIONED MUG!
And then there's the CONFEDERBOT itself. It isn't armed, and it looks quite obviously disabled. Its legs, such as they are, don't look like they were ever very functional. It probably wasn't meant to move away from the TICKET COUNTER. Still, the rest looks to be in good shape. You may not be ALAN, but you have a good idea how you could get this thing operational. All it would take would be some simple switch-flipping, since there's a large ON/OFF SWITCH on its back (which seems to be an unusual design modification for a CONFEDERBOT).

Should you turn it on? It could go either way....

Shall we activate it? Poll to the right!

First off - there are BLOODY FOOTPRINTS that are MOVING away from the mysterious puddle, TOWARDS US!

Flip the bot on, and hope it can save us!

A large ON/OFF SWITCH might have puzzle possibilities. Tie the DIRTY RAGS together, to the BRUSHERHANG, and to the ON/OFF SWITCH so as to turn it back off if something happens?

How long HAS it been since Rhys ate something? VisionPotion has to be hard on the system. Not that it's a good idea to eat anything in a closed up haunted house. (Hurrah, Mosbot!)

And what are those darned imp heads looking at? HalfLife, it's a head crab. Alan Wake, it's that thing. WAA? Probably safe to Look UP.

Grab the flashlight before turning the bot on.

Tobias said...

Wait. Are those footprints... or drips?

Motion-tracking imps sez they're drips.

Take LIGHTER, SPRAY BOTTLE. Break BROOM.

That robot was turned off for a reason, and it was not to save on power or parts.
