Puzzle Solution: Kate Investigation Case Clues

How to complete the Investigation Case Puzzle?

During Episode 4 you’re tasked to gather info on characters by selecting all the correct clues from the dynamic duo’s clue board. For each section there’s a specific number of clues to select.

• First investigate Frank’s Clues by looking at Frank’s drug deals during the week of the party.
– Look at the top-right paper. Then select both the top-right paper list and the top-left account book.
– Investigate the now laid out account book’s pages. Select the bottom-left, bottom-right & top-left 3 papers that all have Rott / Nathan’s name on them.

• Secondly investigate David’s Clues by going through his investigation clues to find out what Nathan did during Kate’s kidnapping.
– Look at & Select the Coordinates Paper, License Plates Pictures & Nathan’s Pictures.
– Investigate the newly laid out papers & photos to find out which car is Nathan’s to match the coordinates. Select the bottom-right paper, as well as the top-left & bottom-right photos.

• Thirdly investigate Nathan’s Clues by looking at his phone messages.
– Unlock his phone by inputting the wrong code three times (for example with: 9535, 1111 & 1010), this will trigger the phone to lock itself. Meaning you’ll now be able to enter the Prepaid Phone Sim Card’s PUK code to unlock the phone, the correct PUK code is: 87897808.
– Investigate the printed out phone messages on the board to find out where Nathan took Kate after the party. Select the top-middle Frank drugs text message, and the 11PM Rott drugs buy at the boondocks.

In the cutscene that follows after putting all clues together, you’ll discover the Kate kidnapping location is at an old barn owned by Harry Aaron Prescott.

Alternative Choice #1: Max Kills Chloe

What follows is an overview of all Alternative Choices in “Episode 4: Dark Room”.

How can Max kill Chloe? If Max accepts Chloe’s hospital bed request for an assisted suicide.

Alternative Choice #2: Max Saves Chloe

Is there a way for Max to save Chloe instead? Grab the bed-side photo of the two of them and have Max test her rewind powers to the max to prevent Chloe from ever landing in that hospital bed in the first place. Sadly this only happens if you let Chloe’s dad William go without saying anything, meaning he dies.

Alternative Choice #3: Do or Don’t Stop The Warren VS Nathan Fight

Later in this episode you’ll be faced with the oh-so-difficult choice to either: Stay out of the Nathan fight which results in Warren beating up Nathan Prescott or to stop Warren from fighting the gun-wielding badguy Nathan.

Alternative Choice #4: Do or Don’t Warn Victoria

Find out the difference between what happens when you either don’t warn Victoria or do warm her about the Dark Room.

Bonus Scene #1: Max Visits Kate in the Hospital

Bonus Scene #2: Rachel’s Fate

Here’s the outcome for Rachel Amber’s fate (remember Max seeing her spirit deer?), which as expected in the old farm’s survival bunker leads to finding out she’s dead. From looking at her photos there, you learn where her burial site outside is.
