In Peter Gabriel's Secret World, the user has a variety of new adventures
to experience. Three of these experiences are of a puzzle nature. The
first puzzle encountered is the "Face Puzzle" in which the user must put
together Peter Gabriel's face in order to proceed to the rest of the
program. Another puzzle is an ongoing search for items to put in the
briefcase Peter Gabriel gives to the player at the onset of the journey.
Four of the twelve items are passes to allow the player access into
certain sections of the program such as the backstage pass to see the
Drummers of Burundi or see Peter's performance at the Grammy Awards. The
third puzzle is a Jam Session inside Real World Studios. The object of
this puzzle is to make combinations from fifteen different artists. The
trick is to please the Producer, Brian Eno, who is an on-screen assistant
and find the thirty-three possible variations. The following two sections
are the locations of the dozen briefcase items and the combinations of
musicians to create all thirty-three clips.
The puzzle consists of choosing three of twelve face pieces that make up
Peter Gabriel's face. Two columns of six make up the selections. The
solution is to choose:
1) Eyes: The top right hand pair of eyes is the correct choice.
2) Nose: The lower left nose piece is Peter Gabriel's.
3) Mouth: The upper left mouth piece completes the puzzle.
Do not despair if the correct combination is elusive. Peter Gabriel will
put the puzzle together when he thinks that he has frustrated the player
Briefcase Item Locations
At the beginning of the program, a briefcase is given to the player. The
main screen of Xplora1 is a four piece interface which happens to be the
Face puzzle from the very beginning. Except for the main screen, the
briefcase may be accessed by placing the mouse cursor over the top
selection of the color bar. The mouse cursor "hand" will turn into a
"briefcase silhouette". Clicking at that point opens the briefcase. The
briefcase is put away by clicking the "-" sign in the upper left corner of
the little window. The picture of the briefcase can be opened or closed by
clicking on the briefcase itself. In order to fill this briefcase follow
1). Blue Pass: Backstage pass to the Drummers of Burundi at WOMAD. To find
this piece, start at the main Face screen. Click on the ear. On the next
screen, click on what we call the "Stone Wheel". Underneath the video
screen is a black and white picture of the Drummers of Burundi. Click on
this. On this screen is a small blue rectangle. This is the pass. Click on
this to place it in the briefcase.
2). Grammy Pass: This pass gives the player access into the Grammy
3). "US" Bar: Does nothing but pick it up. To obtain this pass from the
main screen, click on the eye piece. On the next screen, click on the
photo album. The next screen will actually have two items on it. The small
red rectangle and the small brown rectangle with "US" on top of the photo
album can be placed in the briefcase by clicking on each one.
4). White Card: Does nothing but pick it up. This item is in the Real
World Studios walk about. To get there from the main screen, click on the
nose piece. On the next screen, click on the orange and red pass that has
the words "Real World Studios" on it. This will be the walk about. The
first stop is near a water fall. The second stop is in an alley. The only
room in this alley is the Mixing Room. In this room at the bottom right
corner is a white rectangle. Clicking on this will place it into the
briefcase. The briefcase can, of course, be closed by clicking the "-" on
the small window.
5). Rehearsal Pass: This permits the user to enter Grammy rehearsals.
6). British Pass: This pass permits the user to attend the performance.
7). Snake: This object unleashes the "Love Bomb" if enough other items are
picked up. These three items may be picked up in series in one location.
From the main screen, choose the mouth piece of the face. This is the
video library. The little tea pot icon (fourth from the left) represents
the Steam video. Click on the tea pot. Once the steam screen has come up,
the first item is visible. It is the small green rectangle (British Pass)
on the top section of the color bar which is always visible throughout the
program in the lower left corner. The next item is located in the picture
which may be accessed by clicking on the light blue color bar section.
This is third from the bottom on the color bar and brings up a picture.
Click the mouse when the mouse cursor is placed over the picture. Clicking
while the cursor is like this will open the picture. The picture has a
couple hidden scenes which may be seen by clicking when the cursor turns
into a white circle. At the lower right corner of the picture is the snake
item. The last item in the steam section is in the interview with Peter
Gabriel which is triggered by clicking the bottom of the color bar. The
Rehearsal Pass is in the upper right corner of the screen.
8). Apple: This is simply another item to pick up. This item is located in
the Blood of Eden video screen within the interview with Peter Gabriel.
From the Main screen, choose the mouth piece. The third icon from the left
is the Blood of Eden video. Once there, click the bottom of the color bar.
The apple is in the lower midsection of the screen.
9). Sunflower: This is another item to pick up. The sunflower can be found
by starting at the main screen and clicking the mouth piece. The item is
at the lower right corner of the "US " screen. Click on it to put it in
10). Red Pepper: This is another item to pick up. From the main screen,
select the mouth piece then select the video icon which displays the
shovel. From this point, choose the third from the bottom section of the
color bar. This displays an interesting picture. Click on the picture.
When it is full screen, the red pepper will be at the lower left corner.
Click on different parts of the picture to see hidden videos.
11). Guitar Pick: This is another item to pick up. Starting at the main
screen, choose the ear piece then the constellation which is on the next
screen. This will lead to WOMAD. At the lower left of the pamphlet, the
guitar pick is visible. Pick this up by clicking on it. Exploring the map
with a click of the mouse in different sections will give the player
access to several WOMAD performances.
12). Keys: This is another item to pick up. From the main screen, select
the ear piece then select the drum. The first drum on the right is next to
be selected. On this Sabar screen in the lower right corner of the picture
of the drum, the keys are ready to be clicked on.
