However you may not alter this walkthrough in any way.
You are standing in front of the warehouse. In front of you there is a closed manhole leading down to the sewers. Examine the manhole. Hmmm... scary! Remember this manhole is here because you have to go down the manhole later! Go down the stairs. Click on the man sitting next to the closed gate. Grab his bottle.
Take the pallet from the back wall. Click on the pallet and drag it into the water in front of the closed gate. Once inside the warehouse you'll notice that it is pitch dark in there. Good you brought your night vision goggles. So... use it!
Notice that there is some kind of box standing at the bottom left side of the room. The only thing is... it is surrounded by lots of crates. To get to the box you have to move the crates by using the controls in front of you.
Examine the controls. Before you do anything with the controls grab the huge wrench that is sticking up from behind the controls. To get to the box this is the correct order to push the buttons. Number the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 from the left to the right. Push 4, 2, 5 and 6.
Walk to the box and get the three items from the box. Read the letter in your inventory. Zoom out and return to the controls. Pull the lever to reset the controls. Now you have to set free the path to the exit of the warehouse. Push 3, 2, 1, 2, 4, 2 and 5. Before you go outside have a look at the toolbox beneath the stairs. Take the crowbar from the toolbox. Click on the door to exit the warehouse.
Click and drag the crowbar on the manhole cover to open it. Go down the manhole. There is too much water in the sewer to go any further. So go back up. Go down the stairs. Grab the pipe above the closed gate to cross the water.
Examine the red sewer pipe. Notice the symbol on the pipe. Also notice all kind of signs on the bolts at the right side of the pipe. Your goal is to turn the bolts in that way that the symbols on the bolts correspond with the symbol on the pipe. Click and drag the wrench on the pipe. To get this done turn the top bolt five times, the center bolt three times and the bottom bolt four times. Zoom out and notice that there is a lot of water coming out of the pipe now.
Grab the pipe above the closed gate to cross the water one more time. Climb up the stairs and go down the manhole. Ware your night vision goggles once more. Now you have to get crossed the water to turn the wheel at the opposite site. You can't make it by walking or by swimming over there. So... just break the ladder from the wall. Turn the wheel to drain some more water.
Walk straight forward until you are standing near a ladder leading up. Climb up the ladder. Examine the table at the bottom right corner of the room. Grab the hook from the table. Zoom out. Click on the huge candle near the entrance. Examine the chain that is hanging down at the center of the room. Click and drag the hook to the chain. Click and drag the circular item you found earlier in the box in the warehouse to the hook. Notice the symbols that are lit on the wall: the hand symbol, the flame symbol and the flower shaped symbol.
Zoom out and examine the gated hole in the floor. Notice the same kind of symbols you saw earlier on the wall. Now remember the symbols which were lit. Press the hand symbol, the flame symbol and finally the flower shaped symbol. See how the gate opens revealing some kind of cylinder. Grab the cylinder. Zoom out.
Examine the phonograph at the top right corner. Take the note to read it. Zoom out. Click and drag the cylinder to the phonograph to listen to the message on the cylinder...
