Objective 1: Steal the Automaton’s Heart

There’s no need to sneak around in this job as there are no threats. But do take your time, as Clockwise has set up some elaborate puzzles. Firstly, don’t be tempted to push any buttons or you’ll find the whole looting process very difficult.

Follow our instructions, we’re here for you.

Go through every door on the first floor and loot every room including the Baron’s bust (oo-er!). Remember, don’t push any buttons yet. Loot the first floor, the second floor and the basement. Go through doors but no touching buttons. Look out for Whiteridge’s Duty (6/6) The Burnished Lady in the bedroom on the second floor. Use Focus check every room to ensure you haven’t missed anything and take all documents as you won’t solve the puzzle later.

Now head back to the display where you snaffled the Baron’s bust and press the switch. The walls shift and you can now access even more rooms.

Again, loot, loot, loot – but don’t press any buttons. Use Focus, search everywhere. When you’re satisfied you’re done, head to the east room and hit the switch on the north wall.

The walls move again so do what you’ve already learnt. Loot but don’t touch the switches. Use Focus. Clear that place out. once you’re ready, head for a bookshelf in one of the rooms and use Focus again. Find the trigger book and pull it – it will reveal a wall switch, Press it and loot again – there’s a new room to the south of the kitchen that you need to pay attention to.

There’s a loose brick here which you should totally press. Step into the elevator and go up to the attic where you’ll find documents. Bag them and press another brick to reveal the puzzle set by Clockwise. Follow these instructions to the letter or you’ll get in a right mess:

Think of the first highlighted brick as number 1 and each brick after that assigned the digit 2-10. Scroll and press down on the bricks 2, 5, 7, 9, 10. another elevator will appear which will take you to the basement.

Using all the documents you’ve collected you’ll be able to solve the next puzzle. You’ll need to have picked up all the following documents:

• Project Pendulum – Day 1
• Project Pendulum – Day 6
• Project Pendulum – Day 8
• Project Pendulum – Day 11
• Project Pendulum – Day 13

Each document features a symbol that corresponds to a floor tile. See the symbol for Day 1? Move in a direct line to it. Then find Day 6 and move in a direct line to that. Follow this technique until you solve the puzzle and bag yourself the Client Loot (8/8) – Automaton’s Heart.

Objective 2: Escape from Clockwise’s Residence

Getting out of here is not nearly as much as a chore as getting in, so find the ladder to the east and climb up, backtracking out of the door you entered from. If you’ve completed all 6 client jobs you’ll unlock the Working Overtime achievement/trophy. Good work!
