After the introductory sequence, you're sitting in a shuttle on its way to Luna Crysta. The flight attendant asks if there's anything you need. Select "Have you been to Luna Crysta?" She says that she downloaded a magazine into your VDA. After the conversation, left click your VDA at the left top of the game screen. You view a video-mail from your sister.
Left click the V mail list, then left click the magazine listing to see a magazine. Left click each of the four headlines for a bit of information. After viewing the contents of the magazine, press the curved arrow near the bottom of the magazine. A final message remains, from attorney Millbane. Click the grey attachment in the letter to view a pre-recorded message.
Left click to the right of the game screen to close the VDA. Left click on the bag at the upper right of the game screen. Double left click the photograph to recall your childhood with your uncle. Close inventory and look at the seat pocket in front of you. Pick up the laser scanner pen and put it into your inventory. Put the cursor over the left edge light bar to turn left. Stop when you see a woman in a chair.
Left click Kit Ferris to start a conversation and ask everything. After she leaves, Oliver Whistler will speak to you. Accept his apology and ask everything. When Ferris returns, look through the window to your right and the shuttle arrives at Luna Crysta. If you forgot the laser pin, the flight attendant gives you one and invites you out.
When the customs agent asks you for your VDA, hand it over. After passing the checkpoint, turn to the right till you see something in the distance on a shelf. Left click the arrow to move forward. At the video phone SAVE GAME! This way, you don't use up what little money you have and you learn lots of things about the station.
Get out your ID card and left click it on the left slot of the phone. Left click your Inter-Star bank card on the right slot. Now you can learn the various game locations. The last two calls are free: "Administration", then "Liability Disclaimer" or "Claims Office", then "Complaint Bin." The button labeled P-BK is your personal contacts. Right now, you don't have enough money for these calls. Left click off of the phone to close the display and retrieve your cards.
From the phone, turn left and move forward toward the colorful display. Turn right and click forward twice down the hallway. Turn left to the laser saw and click it for a closeup. Click the red "Maintenance" compartment and get a copper wire, a blue magnet, and a green magnet. In inventory, take the wire and click it on the blue magnet. Place the magnet/wire combination back in the compartment.
Get away from the view and notice the wire sticking out. Click below the saw to get out of the closeup. Turn left and get a small wood plank from the green and red crate. Turn back to the saw and click the plank on the saw. It will snap into place. Exit closeup of the saw. Turn right and move forward. A Cepheid runs past and hides under the saw.
Tell the guard "No, I didn't" and "Yes I'm sure." The young boy thanks you. Turn right and move to the wall posters. Turn left and forward once towards a large metal door. Turn right and get the wire cutters. Return to the saw and cut off the wire sticking out. Ignore the warning and keep turning the machine on till the plank turns into sawdust (you get this later.)
Face the door, push the right button and enter. Turn right to the two lift buttons and push the one for "Administration." (DISC3) On level two, move forward twice, turn left and move forward into the building (Mr. Janous' office.) Talk to the receptionist about your uncle and about an appointment with Janous. The receptionist is called away.
Move behind the desk and click the security monitor low down at the far left of the desk. You see someone move past in the monitor. Click the video phone on top of the desk. It only requires your ID card. Open your P-BK and place all the calls. Pre-recorded video messages are downloaded to your VDA. Turn to the right of the desk and click on the paper in the basket.
Get out your laser pen and click it on the paper, then click it on your VDA in the upper left of the screen. The information is stored in the V note section for future reference. Leave the office and move forward about 3 times to the Security building on the right. Start to enter and Kit comes out. Talk to her and select "Me either" when it comes up.
After the conversation, enter the security office. You're told that Einar Grice wants to see you. Enter his office and ask about the death of your uncle. Eventually he shows you a recording. When you get the chance, ask Grice about a security pass. Leave the office and eventually get the pass from the security guard. "Thank him."
Exit security and open your VDA to view a message from Eliot Neame. Move forward to the railing, turn left and go forward back into Janous's outer office. The receptionist is still absent. Take the coffee mug from the desk. Insert your ID in the phone and press 5. At the menu, press 5 and Janous escorts you into his office.
Ask him about everything. In the reception area, exit to outside. Go forward, turn right, forward and down elevator to the terminal. Return to the saw and collect the dust with the coffee mug. Go back up the elevator, forward twice, turn right and go past the security office and through a blue security field. Continue forward to next building on your right, General Outfitters.
Start to enter the building and talk to the woman that comes out. Ask Gilly about everything. After she leaves, enter General Outfitters then step forward twice more. Turn right and enter the vacant changing room. The machine shows not much in stock yet and what is in stock is too expensive for you. There's clues about what you eventually need. Turn left and notice writing on the wall "Alberto is mindless cog 1387."
Exit to the outside catwalk, forward to the rail and turn right. Move forward till you stop at the broken section where your uncle blew himself up. Step forward once more and see a flashback of uncle Jake. Afterwards, a young Cepheid, Londie, appears. Talk about all options possible. After that, Oliver Whistler shows up. Talk about everything.
Afterwards, turn around, step forward once and turn right. Go forward till you arrive at a pair of elevators. Press the button and step forward into the elevator. Turn right and click the button "Casino." (DISC2) When the elevator stops, go forward till you reach the bar. Click the holographic bell and talk to the bartender Hunter. You eventually learn that he acts as a broker for some of the miners.
He asks if you'd like to take part. Tell him "I think I'll pass...for now anyway" then "Thanks for the information." To contact him in the future, dial 44 at a video phone. Turn slightly right and go forward once to the window. Turn right and go forward along the wall till you are against a table. Turn right again and see a synthesizer that's broken apart.
Step forward, turn left and look down at the synthesizer. Get the sonic tuner lying on the floor. Turn completely around and return to the bar. Turn right to see someone passed out. Take the airgun from his belt. Turn left and go back up the short steps to the raised area of the bar. Turn left again and follow the left corridor till you reach a door on the left marked Gravity Dice.
Turn right and continue once down the corridor to the Blackjack room and enter. Be quick, the door only stays open a short time. Step forward and click on Kit to talk. She barely acknowledges you. After the security guards leave, talk to Kit again. She asks if you'd like to play. Tell her "Yeah." Insert your bank card in the slot and click the plus sign till the display shows 100. Press "Deal." Regardless of what cards you get, "Stand."
Now increase the bet to 200 and press deal. Another win. Increase the bet to 400 and press deal. You win again and Hunter enters to put a stop to the winning. Kit asks if you'd like to play again. Tell her "Maybe later." SAVE GAME right here. You will need extra cash for some expensive items at General Outfitters and you can't rely on just selling crystals later on. Play some more and if you win, save as Win 1. If you win again, save as Win 2 and so on. Remember though, in these extra games, you're relying on your playing skill. If you lose, restore to your most recent win and try again. After you've won a couple thousand or so, exit the blackjack room and check out the Gravity Dice room.
You'll learn that the room is reserved for Alberto the Claims Agent and he might return later on. Now return to the barroom.

Leave this area, back past General Outfitters, through blue security barrier and face the Claims Office.
Enter, turn slightly right and click on the Brave Hope Claims Clerk apparatus on the wall. In a closeup view, click the "Bin" button. Get out your binder of claims and put it into the open slot. Talk to the clerk till he says your claim will take 3 days. After exiting the claims office, turn right and go down the catwalk to where your uncle died. Turn left and go back to the elevator.
Take the elevator back to the casino level. (DISC2) After the door opens, step forward to the bar and ring the bell. When you have the option, tell Hunter "All right, I'm in." After the conversation, turn around from the bar and go up the left side of the raised area. Move forward till you face the Gravity Dice door and enter. You see Alberto at the gaming table.

Exit the chamber and back through the River of Light to the cavern maze. Return to the winding path in the extreme south east of the map and go up. Go through the thin slanted River of Light. (DISC4)
Go through the long abandoned tunnel, to the elevator-through the dark tunnel, and back into the Center Pit. Soon you hear an announcement that the Test Tunnel has been repaired. Turn right and go all the way forward to the green door "Personnel Only" and enter. Soon, a mining drone fires a harmless laser that turns you back to the door.
Quickly turn to the drone, get out the long white sliver of crystal and click it on the drone to reflect the deadly blast back at it. Go forward to the repaired Oxygen Generator.
