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!
