Low-Spoiler Revelation Walkthrough


Welcome to my Revelation walk-through. (-: If you're new to my series of low-spoiler computer game walkthroughs, the idea is to point players towards things they might not have thought of in each game rather than giving away puzzle solutions or offering step-by-step instructions. There's not much point to playing an adventure game if you know all the puzzle solutions in advance, and there's no point at all in investigating a mysterious plotline if you've already had the plot spoiled. So these pages are as close to spoiler-free as possible. If you are looking for the solution to a particular puzzle, I recommend the excellent UHS site--you can only see one hint at a time there, so you can get the answer to one puzzle without ruining all the others for yourself. My website here focuses on exactly the things UHS and traditional walkthroughs don't: the non-critical parts of the game, little detours you can take, extra details you might miss if you only did what was strictly necessary to win the game. If you want even fewer spoilers--you're considering whether or not to buy the game, for example, and just want to know whether there's anything you're going to hate in it--please try my Revelation Review page to find all the pertinent information in one convenient spoiler-free package.

Adventure games in general tend to be more linear than CRPG's, and Revelation is no exception. It's impossible to miss the vast majority of this game--if you don't finish all the puzzles in each Age, you won't be able to reach the endgame. Even so, there are a few game elements that it's possible to skip accidentally:
