HINTS

- Type TEXT to turn picture drawing off, and GRAPHICS to turn picture drawing on again.

- The game is a bit buggy, but all bugs are mainly harmless.

- Verbs EXAMINE and SEARCH are usually synonims in the most of adventure games. Not in this game (here they have different meanings). Examining is not strictly necesary (it will give clues). Searching can discover new objects.

- Read calendar in your office to see what is current date (the game begins at Wednesday, 18th, and ends at Saturday, 21th).

- To learn which is the more important demand to pay, try to type PAY ELECTRICITY DEMANDS, PAY MA WILLIS DEMANDS, PAY WATER AUTORITY DEMANDS or PAY ELECTRICITY DEMANDS. You will get a message what will happen if you don't pay some other demand.

- If WAVE near the end of the game seems illogical for you, try GESTICULATE instead.

- The following tasks need not to be done to finish the game: sending letters which Miss Jones forgot to post, chating with Rory about his love problems, calling another coach firm and going to the press conference. But, skipping these tasks will distroy the natural logic of the game. This is very probably caused by bugs in the game (most probably, the author forgot to test some flags which tell whehter these tasks are completed).

- The author also planed that after the coach become broken, you must leave the coach, push the coach, then enter coach again. Due to a bug, this is not necessary.

- You can buy beer or whiskey in the bar, and drink them, even without money (what a wonderful). But, there is no point for this.

- Phone box in Miller Road is useless.

- All objects can be examined. Messages like "nothing special" are very rare in this game. The game is full of messages.

- A bit of humour: try to kiss Miss Jones, or to pray. Also, try to ask Miss Jones to wash the dirty kit...

- Of course, this is an extremely peaceful adventure, so it it impossible to die in this game. Simply, a new day will not dawns until you finish all tasks for the current day.
