You remember working as a freelance journalist abroad, then your memory goes Hazy, next thing you remember is being arrested for murder and locked up in a foreign jail.
Firstly walk left slightly until you are in front of the cupboard, and press E. (This key examines the things around you without changing them). Now press SPACEBAR and open both sides of the cupboard. (This key manipulates the things you are standing in front of. You would use it to open doors, pull levers, rummage amongst rubble, talk to friendly people, or perform any other action on the things you see). Inside the cupboard you can now see something. Press P to pick this up. The monitor in the bottom left will now tell you that you are carrying a piece of insulated cable. If you press ALT now you will attempt to use this object at your current location, and a message will appear telling you that the cable is of no use here. Walk a little further right until you are in front of the cell door, and press SPACEBAR. You will then be informed that the door is locked. Now walk to the very right hand side of your cell, and pick up the hairgrip. You will now be holding two items, the insulated wire and the hairgrip. If you look at the monitor on the left hand side, it is still showing a picture of the insulated wire, however you wish to use the hairgrip to try to pick the lock. To select a new object to use you need to open the Inventory Window. At any one time you can carry up to 16 objects, however only one object can be used at a time. In order to select a new object you need to press RETURN to access the Inventory Window. This window shows all the objects you are carrying, and serves 3 purposes. You can select a new object to use, you can examine any object you are carrying, and you can try to combine two objects with each other. At the moment both the white box, and the yellow box are highlighting the insulated wire. The white box selects the object you wish to use or examine. The yellow box can be used to select a second object to try to combine/use with the white box object. Press the cursor keys now to move the white box over each of the objects in turn, and press the E key on each one to examine it.
