The Child of the Hill House (info & tips)

You’re a hitman.
You usually don’t kill women or children but this time is different: the money is huge, and your contractor said that this is a mission is better not to refuse.
The target is a little kid – in a remote house on a hill. You don’t know if there are other people in the house with him – his parents, or his tutors – he should be alone (they said) but if there’s anyone, just kill him, they said.
They’ll pay plenty for each kill – no matter what, no matter how many.
But you should kill the kid, and do it TONIGHT

The Child of the Hill House is a small pixel-art point’n’click adventure game created in 14 days for #AdvJam2018

Tips


I cannot enter the House!

I cannot enter the kid’s room!

I cannot reach the Temple-like structure!

I cannot kill the kid!

I cannot deal with the stone Gods!

What about the animal statue in the library?

Why the kid won’t leave the room, once stone Gods are ok with that?

How can I leave the house?

I cannot use the silver bullets!


 
 
I cannot enter the House!

You need to unlock the back door. You’re a professional so you don’t necessarily need a key (you have tools with your for this reason).
But the lock is jammed so you cannot use your tools right away. You need to find something to clean the lock.
Checking the bodies, you can find something useful for that. A screwdriver.
It’s in the garden near the main entrance.
Once you have it you can use it on the door, then you can use your tools and unlock the door.
 
 

 
 
I cannot enter the kid’s room!

That door is different. You cannot unlock it with tools or anything else. You need a key.
The key is on a body too. But that body is in a place in the woods you forgot to check.
To be able to go there you must go to the bathroom window (near the kid’s room) and look outside. You then will notice a Temple like structure near the house.
So go back to the woods and take the first narrow path you’ll find.
 
 

 
 
I cannot reach the Temple-like structure!

Yes, there’s a dog blocking your path. It’s dangerous and probably doesn’t eat since forever
You can, of course, kill it with your gun, but you can also feed it and then it’ll let you pass
There’s a dirty piece of bread under a corpse in the right corner of the house
Try to move the body, and take the bread
 
 

 
 
I cannot kill the kid!

Maybe this is not the right action, or maybe you can’t do it in the kid’s room. Try to talk to him and listen to his words
If you talk to him enough he’ll tell you something odd. He cannot leave the room. Because of the stone Gods that protect the door.
 
 

 
 
I cannot deal with the stone Gods!

They’re there to keep the kid (is he really a kid?) inside that special room. But you can convince them to release him, telling them a sort of passcode. They’re using words that seems ancient. Where do you see writing with ancient-like, unknown words?
Just after you left your car you saw a path with a lot of stones. If you examine them with care you can understand what kind of alphabet is that. Check again the first stone, after reading the others in the same area.
Yes. it’s a Greek-like alphabet! Now you can read what’s on the two couples of statues in the nearby areas. You need to read all of them.
 
 

 
 
What about the animal statue in the library?

Did you notice it? Good. It may be important. Its eyes are bright. Try to carve them out. Tools work fine for that.
 
 

 
 
Why the kid won’t leave the room, once stone Gods are ok with that?

You may ask him.
 
 

 
 
How can I leave the house?

It wants blood. Which one? It’s up to you decide.
There are three different outcomes, depending on that. A fourth if you don’t want to spill any, or if you don’t understand that a sacrifice must be done with proper tools. Made by silver
 
 

 
 
I cannot use the silver bullets!

Once in the kitchen, followed by horrible monsters, try to keep the door shut somehow. Try to push the cupboard against it
