Premise
Kyle Hyde orders a burger at Lucky's Cafe but it tastes awful, can he figure out why?

This is a short, stupid story set in the world of Hotel Dusk and Last Window: The Secret of Cape West. It's spoiler-free and playing the actual games isn't necessary but please play them anyway.........
Spoiler : Credits :
Written by Ana (me)
Kyle's sprites ripped by Adrot

This case was written on a whim for the Three's Company competition.
Spoiler : Walkthrough :
Last Window: The Secret of the Bad Burger

Talking to Sidney:
- It's awful [Telling him it's great twice = gameover]
Talk about "The burger"
- You don't seem busy [If you don't, Kyle will direct you back to him anyway]
Talk about "The other problem"

Investigation:
Move to the Kitchen
Examine the freezer
Move to the Freezer
Examine the boxes
Examine the white packaging on the floor
Bring closer -> Move further away -> Move halfway closer [im sorry, im rly dum]
Examine the large sack
Move to the Kitchen -> Lucky's Cafe -> First Floor Hallway

Mags' Door:
Click on the door once then click the back arrow. [Knocking 4 more times = gameover]

Hyde-and-seek:
Move to the fourth floor (Examining the plant = gameover)
Move to the third floor
Move to Dylan's Room

Breaking into Dylan's Room:
Examine the door handle
Present the Paperclip
Click the yellow parts
Examine the fridge

Confrontation:
[Warning: Most wrong answers will put you in an unavoidable gameover state.]
"The back door is jammed!"
"Red Cow meat" -> Present the Red Cow Packaging -> "You've been in the freezer"
"How did you enter the building?" -> "You went UP the elevator!" -> Point to the freezer
Present Sidney's Account

All Gameover Scenes:
1. Tell Sidney his burger's great twice
2. Knock on Mags' door five times
3. Examine the potted plant when hiding from Dylan
4. Get anything wrong during the final confrontation

This is pretty short but it's fun! Do recommend but it's much better if you've already played LW before. Pretty cute and the presentation on this is very fun, it's nothing major but it acts well as a cute taste of the actual games. My favourite parts were definitely the game overs, you can get pretty crazy ones in there.

Thank you so much for using the Hotel Dusk sprites for Kyle. I've just started Last Window and I seriously can't get used to seeing Kyle in a suit and tie.

What a hilarious case. i would love to see more HD/LW things in AAO.
I think I found one of Phoenix's ancestors!

"But I'm a customer, and I sure see this..." LOL. This case is really funny and enjoyable. Now that I've finally started playing Hotel Dusk, I feel like I can appreciate the knocking on the door a lot more... The sprites look really good with this format as well.

A short case (which is to be expected, seeing that there are only three characters), but a fun one anyway. Some interesting alternate endings as well as a satisfying main one.
Spoiler : :
And yes, I fell for the 'breaking the door down' bit.
Good use of the pictures, sprites, and music. The music from the games it's inspired from gave a nice and relaxed feel to it.

This was really fun! I've only ever played the original Hotel Dusk (no Last Window export out here...) but I still found this super charming and sweet; it had the same type of humour as the game and I loved how seriously it took itself.
Spoiler : :
I got the plant game over and I have no regrets because it was hilarious.
