Part 1 – Kuvaq – Pack the Suitcase

On the bed, you will find the suitcase. Open the suitcase. Inside the suitcase, you will find the list. The list tells you to collect a toothbrush, bolt cutter, pair of socks, and provisions.

The green sock is under the cushion on the bed. On the right, you will find the old escape plans, and beside it, you will find the trunk from Rufus’ father. Under the window, there’s a cabinet where you can find the torch and oil can. Take these two with you, then proceed to the living room.

Go straight to the bathroom door to take the chafing chit. The toothbrush is on the sink, but it is alive, and runs to the dark corner. Open the bathroom to find the plunger. Open the locker door and find the bolt cutter. You will also see the detergent. Pick it up as well.

There is a room with a guillotine where Rufus has to get the severe slip. Proceed to the kitchen, open the fridge to find a yellow sock. On the right, there is a coat with the blue sock. Use the plunger on the sink to pull out a plank with a mouse hole. Search inside the mouse hole to get the mousetrap.

Take a bunch of notes near the oven and fire them up using the torch. In a pot, throw the blue and yellow socks, and then one of them will change to green. Take that sock.

To obtain the provisions, take the oil can, and use it on the sink. There are crumbs on the sofa, so use the can there. For the toothbrush, take the mouse trap and place it in the dark corner. You will then catch the toothbrush.
