    The Walkthrough (not the movie, the computer game)

    Warning: Do not use this walkthrough unless you are desperate. This truly is a game to savor, so just going through and clicking on only the important things is not recommended. The game has its tough parts, but it's not one of the more difficult ones. However, if you're near the end and need to find that one last item, feel free; or if you only bought it so that you could see the King Brian the Wild sketch, be my guest. I will soon be putting out a hint file so that those of you who want gentler hints can have them, so be on the watch. A walkthrough is much quicker to write. ************************************************************************

    [At any time during this walkthrough, feel free to click on any extraneous items you see in each game scene along the way to suit your interest, as it will hurt nothing and only make you enjoy the experience the more for it.]
