I played the first parts of the game. Here are things I found out:
- After you get the telescope lens from the Brigitte's block puzzle, you can ask Jane for the telescope. Normally, you need to click on the telescope tripod to hear Nancy talk about it, but you can skip that.
- The first time you go to Linda's door, you overhear a conversation between her and Hugh. You can skip this by going past her door, instead of zooming in on her door.
- There are six variations of Nancy's first conversation with Linda. The quickest way through the conversation is to pick the first option, then the second option.
- When you call for food, order bangers and mash. It's the fastest food to order; the other three possibilities take two seconds longer to place an order. Nancy will talk a bit when the food arrives, though, so maybe it's not so fast.
This kind of screws up my speedrun strategy. 3:15 AM is the perfect time to go on a ghost hunt. So I guess this means I'll do the ghost hunt early. That's not too much of a problem, though. I'll just have to juggle everything around.
