El Marrow

You are in Manny's office.
Check Manny's mail.
Grab the cards off the table and the memo from his tube.
Then, Talk to Eva about Manny's job.
Now, use the deck of cards with the hole punch on Eva's desk.
Now go in the door to the left, down the elevator and into the garage.

No one is in the garage, eh?
Go to the shack in the corner of the garage on the other side of the elevator.
Knock on the door.
So, Glottis won't drive?
So talk him into driving.
Tell him he's not too big, the cars are too small.
Now leave the garage, and go to the street.

Manny must get the work order signed.
Don Copal must sign it but Eva says he's busy.
You need to get around Eva and into Copal's office.
Go down the elevator, through the lobby, out to the street, and down the street into the alley.

Go to the end of the alley and climb the rope.
Now go into the window behind Manny.

Manny is in his boss's office.
Look at the computer.
The answering machine is hooked up to it.
Choose the responder and instruct Eva to sign for Copal.
Go out the window, and back down the rope, and back to Manny's office.

Get Eva to sign the work order.
Go back to the garage and give the work order to Glottis.

Land of the Living, poisoning, new client, etc.
Use the scythe on the client.
Hmm, Manny needs a lead on a good client.
The good leads come into Domino's message tube.
Go south and into the death building.
The janitor yelled at Manny.
Go into the packing room to the right of the lobby, and get the chemicals.
Go out into the street and to the festival.
Head toward the tents.
Walk to the tent with the bread.
Pick up a loaf of bread by pressing "enter". Now press "P" to take it.
Also, be sure and talk to the clown making baloon animals (by pressing "enter"). Tell him to make you a balloon (it doesn't matter what).
Now press "P" to take the balloon.
Also get two "dead worms" balloons.
Fill each baloon with one of the fluids from the packing room.
Now you have to walk to the front to leave the fair.

Walk to the south again and into the building.

Go up to Manny's office.
Put the two baloons down Manny's message tube.
After the janitor leaves, have Manny come back and go down the elevator.

Something dirty's going on.
Manny's stuck in the shack.
Pick up the bondo.
Knock on the door.
Tell Salvador that you want to get out, to get even.
You want to prove that the department runs a crooked game.

You are in a room with Salvador and Eva.
Walk up to Salvador and talk to him (by pressing "enter").
Ask him about your mission.
So, you have to get pigeon eggs to leave town?
Where are pigeons? On the roof.
OK, first you have to find something to lure the pigeons.
What do pigeons like to eat?
OK. Now, you have to leave the room through the open door.
Walk to the front, and out the alleyway.

Walk to the left towards the alley. Keep walking straight down the alley, until you reach the tie rope.
Climb the rope.
You can't get to the top of the roof yet, so head towards the left.
Turn the corner, and you will reach some windows.
Press "enter" to look in the window.
The office is empty, so go to the third window and press enter to open it.
Walk by the desk and press "enter" by the drawer to open it. Now press "enter" to pick up the coral, then press "p" to take it.
Go to the punching bag, and punch it three times.
Pick up the mouth piece.
Walk back to the window and press "enter".

Walk to the right, and around the corner again and back to the rope. But don't climb down. (You want to get to the roof).
You need some way to get to the ladder above you.
Press "i" and then use the arrow keys to select the award. Now press "p" to take it.
Look at the loose piece of rope on the ground and press "enter" to tie the award to it.
Now press "enter" to throw the rope on the ladder above you.
Walk to the next ladder and press the up arrow key to climb it.

Now you are on the roof. Walk towards the pigeons.
They won't let you get too close, so you have to scare them.
Maybe the balloon would scare them after it popped.
Manny can't pop it so put the in the feeding dish (by pressing "i" and using the arrow keys to select the balloon and pressing "p").
Pigeons don't eat balloons, so put the bread on top of the balloon (by pressing "i" and using the arrow keys to select the bread and pressing "p").
The pigeons will fly away.

Walk over to where the pigeons were and grab the eggs (by pressing "enter" then pressing "p").
Next go back down the ladder and down the ropes (by pressing "enter" each time).
Now walk to the left to the first alley.
You will see a sheet of metal on the floor (the cover for the elevator).
On the wall behind it you will see what looks like purplish circle.
Press "enter" and the evelator will rise to take you back to the first room.

Press "i" and choose the eggs.
Give Sal the eggs by pressing "enter" when next to him.
Salvador won't let you leave town because he needs his teeth.
Use the mouth piece with the bondo and give it to Salvador.
A long walk later...

The Petrified Forest
Glottis was fired, so he took his heart out and threw it to the spiders.
The spiders won't give it back.
Walk behind Glottis (toward where the heart was thrown) until you see the heart.
The heart is in the web and the spiders won't let go of it.
Pick up a bone and throw it at the web.
Use the scythe on the web until it snaps loose.
Pick up the heart and use it on Glottis.

Glottis knocked down the signpost!
Get out of the bonewagon and pick the sign up.
Pu the sign in the ground.
Follow its direction.
Put it in the ground again.
Go through the tunnel.
What ever tunnel you follow it always takes you to the center of the clearing.
Hmm, center?
Use the sign post in the dark spot in the center.

Glottis is stuck underground and won't go any further because of the key.
Pick up the key, and Glottis won't be scared any longer.
The road is too bumpy.
You need shocks.
Go back up the ramp.
There are two roads that are yet unexplored.
The one to the north is bumpy.
The one to the northeast is not.
Take that road.

A tree with pumps?
Turn off the switch.
The four pumps would make good shocks.
You need to tip the tree over.
Get the left two pumps working together and the right two working together against the left side.
That would shake the tree apart.
Push the wheelbarrow until the front wheel is resting on one of the lines on the left.
One of the pumps stopped working.
Work on the timing until you can get the two left pumps in sync.
Do this with the right side as well.
OK. The tree is shaky but its not tipping.
Turn the switch off.
Glottis will climb the tree.
When he is all the way up, turn the switch on.
Watch the tree fall and Glottis fly.

Down the road and to a gate to go see demon beavers?
Go through the door in the middle of the dam.
AHHHHH! Flaming beaver!
Use the fire extinguisher on the beaver.
It's not working!
Move to the little path to the left of the dam.
It leads to a big rock.
Hide under the rock.
The beaver can smell Manny, but not see him.
Throw a bone from the web towards the river.
Now spray the beaver with the fire extinguisher.
Manny takes out two more beavers then unlocks the gate.
He climbs into the bonewagon and bids farewell to this forest.

Walk into the fog to the right of the stairs off the edge of the patio.
Go up stairs and into Rub-a-Mat.
Talk to the janitor, Celso.
He's one of Manny's old clients.

You have to find Celso's wife.

Turn the wheel until the bottom one started moving, keep it in the same direction until all four are moving, then stop when the flat part of the top tumbler is even with the doorframe.
