Possible hint needed
 
Question. Without giving too much away, I might need a hint.

*** WARNING: May contain spoilers below ***

Iím near the end of the game, in the underground rebel base. I already have the mask from the theater, the suit from the casino, and have sent the carrier pigeon to the weapon makers house. (He dropped through the vent and spilled the Spoutella.

I placed the arm in the snow grinder, and returned the photo to the garbage can.

My only 3 inventory items are the nitrogen, remote and scythe.

The only task remaining (I assume) is to board the Bone Wagon and enter the maze, except I canít board the bone wagon. It keeps saying ďNo use for itĒ.

I have the remote, can lower it up and down, can also get crushed by the car, but I canít get in the car.

My question is: is this a software glitch Ė similar to the forklift glitch, or am I still missing something.

Please do not ruin the game for me by providing any information other than a yes or no answer,

Yes itís another "Forklift" type glitch or

No Iím still missing something.

Thanks

Yes, you are missing something. But first I have to say that I'm impressed that you've put the photo back into the bin. That was utterly pointless, of course, but it never ever occurred to me to do that even just to see what might happen. So, good job.

Anyway, you're on the right track. The Bone Wagon is going to play a part in tracking down the florist, but right now Manny has no idea where to begin looking. He needs a trail to follow.

Next to the Bone Wagon there is a puddle of sproutella. One of the cans the florist was carrying cracked open when he landed. You have in your inventory a grinder with a skeletal arm in it. Bone sprouts in contact with sproutella. So, play around and see what happens.

Thanks MM for the reply.

I didn’t read the entire post after confirming it wasn’t another speed glitch.

Thanks for the confirmation.

After checking the control settings it actually turned out I was pressing the wrong key to take the grinder (duh!). On my version I always use “Enter” but for the grinder you have to press Plus or P.

And I also half expected to drive the bone wagon through the tunnel entrance and into a maze at that point. I thought one of the characters mentioned something about it.

I also expected the “Monster” to be a little Chihuahua or a mouse or something that only “sounds” terrifying .

Anyway, finished the game and Wow! Very cool! Was so glad to see that mural finally completed!

I was just going to mention to anyone interested, if you like this game I can recommend another similar one (only a bit darker) called Still Life 2 which I played once because it was only 5 bucks at office max, but it was awesome. Very similar in a lot of ways with a definite art-thing happening there. By a French company IIRC, was hard to get it to run right but it was well worth it.

Ugh. I hadn't realized that you hadn't actually yet taken the grinder. Oh, well. You figured it out.
