Alone in the Dark
(The Walkthrough Ver. 1.0)
This is a COMPLETE SPOILER to the Alone in the Dark game for the PC.
It will get the player through quickly and assumes the player either
retains all (s)he reads or does not care at all about the story that
goes with the game. All unnecessary and used items are left behind
as soon as possible. Most things that do not need to be done to
finish the game are marked as optional. This is by no means the
only order of events that leads to a completed game, but it is
nearly the most efficient. Distribute this freely and add to it as
you wish just maintain the credits. Enjoy!
