Part One

     This walkthru will help you to finish "Witness." This game
is a much simpler one than "Deadline," so I hope you won't be
disappointed when you see how easy it is to solve this mystery.

     Okay, you start South of the house, where you just picked up
a matchbook. {By the way, none of the stuff that came with the
game is really necessary to solving the case}. Go North twice to
the front door and ring the bell. Phong will let you in. Then
just try to go East, and Phong will lead you to the Living Room,
where Monica and Mr. Linder are.

     Now, wait {get used to doing that, because there's a lot of
waiting in this one}, and Linder will eventually take you to his
office. Sit down in the wooden chair, and Linder will hand you a
note. Read it, as it will help waste some time. Now, just do
anything {but stay seated!} to make time pass. Show the matchbook
to Linder for an interesting reaction, if you like. In any case,
you just have to keep waiting.

     Eventually, Monica will come in briefly to announce she's
going to the movies. This is not what you're waiting for,
however! So, keep on waiting, and finally, the murder will occur.
Linder will be shot while you sit there, and you can't stop it
from happening. Read the description carefully at the moment the
shot is fired. There's something odd about it. In fact, the whole
thing is a setup.
     The first thing to do is stand up, then push the button.
Instead of ringing to summon the butler, it causes a strange
click to be heard from the clock. At this point, Phong will enter
the room. Tell him you want the keys, and he'll hand them over to
you. Now, examine the clock. Keyhole seems a little strange,
doesn't it? The doorbell rings while you're doing this, so as
Phong goes to answer the door, examine the keyhole.

                             PART 2

     I'll bet you're getting some ideas already! However, you'll
need to have the powder analyzed, and Duffy hasn't arrived yet,
so wait around until he does. Then get the powder analyzed {you
can ignore Stiles, he's only a red herring}. While that's being
done, examine the window {you can't open the clock yet, it's the
one key you don't have}. The green wire seems suspicious, so get
it for future reference.

     Now, go West into the Hallway, then North twice, and open
the Butler's door. Go West into the room, and read the mystery
book {by the way, you can drop the telegram and note, they aren't
important}. A gun receipt is used as a bookmark. The purchaser's
name is obviously phoney, but hang on to the receipt anyway.
     Okay, from the Butler's Room, go East twice to Monica's
room, then unlock and open the back door. Go East into the
Backyard, then South twice to the office path. Aha, a muddy gun!
No fingerprints, alas, but you might want to take it along with
you, just in case. Now, go West into the Side Yard.

     Hmmm, more footprints here, but they aren't quite the same
as the ones on the office path. In fact, it looks like someone
was standing here for awhile. Wonder who it might have been? {No,
*not* Sergeant Duffy!}. Anyway, go West again to the driveway,
then North and East into the Garage.

     Unlock and open both the garage door and the workshop door,
then go East into the Workshop. The place looks like an
electrician's paradise, and there isn't much you can do here;
but, there are spools of wire hanging around. Could it be...?
Examine spool, and you have established a link of sorts between
this place and the study. The green wire is obviously from this
room. Now, all you need is the person who put it there.

                           Part Three

     You now stand there waiting for Monica. Just keep waiting;
she'll arrive {saying "Wait for Monica" is easiest. It will take
a while, so if you want to hunt down Phong and ask him about the
gun receipt, you have time}. When she does get there, she'll
fiddle briefly with the junction box {very suspicious!} before
noticing you. Now, wait until she leaves, then follow her. You
*must* use directions here, just saying "Follow Monica" won't

     Follow her all the way to her room, and wait for her to come
back out of the bathroom. When she returns, ask her about Mr.
Linder. Her response will establish the motive. Now, wait some
more, and she will eventually leave the room. Follow her again,
this time to the office.

     As soon as you get in there, handcuff her. Somewhere along
the way, Sgt. Duffy will have left with the body, so you can't
arrest her until he comes back. In the meantime, you have to find
some very important evidence. So, first search Monica for the
key. When you get it, unlock the clock and open it. She's already
removed the gun, but you can search her for that, also.

     Now, just wait until Duffy returns, and arrest her for the
murder. And that should be about it. By the way, if you try
leaving her and waiting in the office {so you can find the gun in
the clock}, you'll find that, however hard you try, you won't be
able to handcuff her {which is necessary so she can be searched}.
So, you'll just have to wait and follow her. As I said in the
beginning, it's a pretty simple game.
