Alone in the Dark
(The Walkthrough Ver. 1.01)

	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!
