Hi.
I have finally got the game, and got the time to check it out.
I managed to get in the house, and I think I also managed to pick up the video tape. However, when I interact with the video player, nothing happens when I choose the item in my inventory.
I have found an other place, where it opens up my inventory, but I don't know what it is.
I find it very difficult to find the videoplayer, and the character seem to turn just by walking.
It's nice that you can hear how many items you have in your inventory. If I don't have the video tape, then I don't know what item I have.
Edit: I finally figured it out. There are two items, and I didn't picked up the video tape. I look forward to see how far I can get in this game.

Best regards SLJ.

@SLJ exactly, you were trying to interact with the letter on the tape player and not the video tape. You can also use OCR. It'll describe whatever item you're on when you use the inventory. If you have any questions, let me know.

Hi @seb2314.
Thanks a lot. However, doing OCR on the inventory does not give me any useful results. I'm playing on the Xbox. I'll try to adjust some settings to hopefully get a better result.
I have noticed that the controls do not work as you have described. Turning works like you have described with the right analog stick. But it seems like the character also turns when walking. Walking up to the sound of the doors does not open them. I only get through by luck.
I am now at the part where I'm controlling the guy in the video. I find it nearly impossible to find the living room because of the controls. I keep walking in circles all the time.
Then I started the game for the first time, I had to click confirm to lots of screens, including the options. I just pressed A, hoping that I didn't changed anything. Do you know about any settings which lets navigation works as you describe? Because my game is close to unplayable at the moment. I have played the game for 7 hours, trying to navigate this damn house, and I have only made some small progress.
I'm not totally sure about this, but it feels like the house is more difficult to navigate when playing the character in the video.

You should definitely not be able to turn using the left analog stick only. When controlling the guy on the video, you should only have to follow the guy you're with, since parts of the house are only available to you when he goes first. He will lead you to the living room if you follow the sound of his footsteps. I don't have the XboxOne version so I can't really help you with the settings you need, however to confirm your camera settings are fine, tri and move the analog stick left or right. If you keep hearing footsteps without bumping into a wall, it's definitely not supposed to happen and there's a setting that needs to be changed.

You will know you are in the living room if you hear the guy you're with say, "we find Andre and we go, I mean fuck this show." Before that you will hear him pull a lever then a trapdoor open. You will then need to be crouched to go through, so press the right analog stick once, then move to the same side as the sound of the trapdoor. I spent as many hours trying to go through at first not knowing I had to be crouched down to go through.

Thanks a lot.
Regarding the controls: Sometimes, the foot steps continues when I bump into a wall, and other times it doesn't. The locked door, for example, can be behind me. When I walk around a bit, then it's suddenly to the left or to the right. I'll ask some sighted people I know who have the game regarding the camera controls, because it makes it very difficult to play.
With a lot of patience, I can come as far as to the part, where I have to go down the latter. When I find the latter nearby, I can take a few steps on it, and then I loose it, and can not find it again.

Ah well you're doing great then. When you are on the ladder, you need to move the left analog stick backward to go down. Then turn around and walk forward for a few seconds.

Thank you.
Bad news: I haven't figured out the camera settings yet.
Good news:
I'm the kind of person who don't give up that easily. So, after an hour of wandering around, I managed to find the latter, climb it and end the video part.
How important is it to look at things like objects, doors and stuff? I figured out the following which puzzles me:
When you get inside the house when controlling the guy in the video, then the house become much easier to navigate if you rotate the person 90 de grease to the right and just work forward.
So, that makes me wander if the camera controls are messed up, or if it's just me who still don't fully get how it works.
Well, back to the game. big_smile

I follow the instructions on how to pull the lever, but it doesn't work. I hope I'll figure it out.

Update on my controls regarding the camera:
I have to move the right analog stick 9 times, so he makes 3 foot steps to turn 90 de grease. I have tested that at the part where I can interact with the video player.

I'm now at the part where I have to take the notes and find the bolt cutter. Sounds easy in the walkthrough, but extremely difficult for me. But I'm at leased making some progress...

Well, some objects are definitely not important to look at, such as pictures or notes scattered around the place.

It's totally normal you're having an easier time navigating the guest house if you are turned 90 degree to the right, since all the passages are pretty much in front of you. As far as the camera settings, what you're dealing with doesn't surprise me. For me, moving the right analog stick 3 times makes my character turns 90 degree, and on the PS4 you can even have your character turning 90 degree by moving the analog stick only once.

To take the bolt cutters, just face the cell door, turn around by moving the analog stick backward plus circle, crouch down and keep pressing x by moving to the right. The annoying thing in this game is the fact that you need your camera positioned at the same height as the objects you're interacting with, hence why you need to be crouched down to take the bolt cutters from the bench.

Hi.
Okay, I give up, at leased for now.
I have tried to change the camera settings, but I can't make the adjustment where I turn 90 de grease each time a footstep is heard. Therefore, I only find the things to interact with by luck, and I wander around for hours to make just some small progress.
I have tried for more than two hours to find the bolt cutter and the list of notes from the bench. No matter what I do or where I crouch in the area, I don't find it.
When it is that difficult for me to pick up the items, then I don't see myself getting very far in the game. That is, of course, if I get the camera controls fixed, or if I get used to the navigation in other ways.
However, the really great thing is that the game have saved right before the place where I have to find the bolt cutter, so I don't have to do the swimming part again. I really like that the game save that often. That makes it easier to make a small progress, and then come back to the game later.
@Seb: Did you also find it that extremely difficult to find the bolt cutter on your first playthrough?

What I found difficult is the fact that you need your camera to be positioned at the same height as the objects. The bolt cutters are about 5 or 6 steps away from the cell door, if you wander too far you'll go to the wrong passage. What really doesn't help you is the turning. I hope there's a setting for the Xbox that changes that.

Finally, finally, finally!
You wrote your answer when I was writing my post about giving up. I didn't knew he is crouching when walking, so you press crouch, and walk when he is crouching. That small detail makes things much easier. I finally found the cutter after wandering around a few minutes while crouching. big_smile Thanks a lot man.
Regarding the settings: I can hopefully get some sighted help to check that. Otherwise, things might get very difficult later on. Back to the game. big_smile

Yeah I should've been more precise about that, my bad. Most, if not all items should be picked up while being crouched. Glad you got it figured out!

Now I'm upstairs again, where it's raining and thundering outside. I triggered something which makes someone hammering like crazy on a door, which suddenly stops when I wander around for a while.
According to the walkthrough, I should pick up a map and some herbs. I'm still not able to navigate the house, and I have no idea on what room I'm in. So I'm just wandering around.
Well, enough of this game for today. The game is much harder for me than I thought it would be, but I am slowly making progress. smile
My biggest issue is the navigation, where I have no idea on where I am in the house. Because of that, I'm not sure on if I will be able to continue far in the game, until I have got better at this. I have read in the walkthrough that I'll be chased through the house in chapter 2, where I could imagine it being very important to know what you are doing.
I haven't given up yet... smile

Screw the map and the herbs, you won't need those. What I did is actually asked permission from the guy who wrote the walkthrough to edit it, so some things written there are not necessary. I suppose you're playing on normal difficulty anyway, so your health regenerates over time. You are in an east/west corridor. You need to try and open the door on the opposite side of the passage to see that it's locked. You're then going to hear knocking on the basement door, so just head back where you came from.

Thank you. I'm playing on easy I think, if I didn't screwed up when starting the game. Or, the easiest difficulty level. smile
I wander why the knocking suddenly stopped, without opening the door. I'll play some more later today.

Hi.
I have noticed something interesting regarding the camera and navigation. I'm not totally sure about this, but it seems like it works as follows:
Picking up objects does not require the camera to be totally centered at the object. It seems like the object will be picked up even if it is 30 de grease to the left or to the right for you. I have to get sighted help to figure out if it's more de grease. What I have noticed is that if you sidestep, you can step yourself into the right persission most of the time. If the object is behind you, then you can do the same after having turned around. I have to get more experienced with the game to test this, but I would like to hear others experiences and thoughts regarding this.

Can you find a way to make sure your language for the game in the options menu is set to English? For some odd reasons when I downloaded the game from steam I believe my default language was Russian

Hi.
I finally got some time to play the game again.
I'm making some very small progress, and I'll say this game requires extremely much patience.
I'm currently at the part where I have picked up the fuse, and need to place it into the fuse box. But I'm still not able to navigate the house very well, and I get lost all the time. I have searched for more than 3 hours, but I don't find the fuse box. So I give up, at leased for now.
I have no sighted assistance, so I have no clue on how to fix my camera issues. I hope I find the fuse box by luck next time I play the game. I even messed up that much so I went into the room with the video tape player.
Do you have any hints on how to find that damn fuse box? smile
