Walkthrough: Peril in Pleasantville (Part 1) by Lamont Sanford

Version 1.1

General comments

Peril in Pleasantville is ©2012 Lamont Sanford. Quotes used in this walkthrough are for illustrative purposes only.

Peril in Pleasantville was written using Inform 7 and compiled to gblorb format. For details on playing gblorb files see http://inform7.com/if/interpreters/

In this walkthrough commands that are intended to be entered into the game are written in all lower case (and separated by commas if they are part of a sequence of commands). Comments are in brackets. Options, such as the different 'ask about' topics, are in square brackets. General description is in sentence case.

Undocumented Commands

compliment [girl] (allows you to pay an NPC a compliment, which is necessary to unlock certain scenes)

think about [npc] (tells you what the PC thinks about a particular NPC)

Note that 'think about' and 'ask about' will produce different responses at different times (and at some points they will not produce a response at all, even if they have previously).

Getting Around

Peril in Pleasantville uses standard IF commands for movement: east (e), west (w), north (n), south (s), up (u), down (d), and occasionally enter.

I've only provided instructions for getting from one place to another up to the point at which the PC gets a fake ID. A rough map is provided below (click to enlarge).


Created with Trizbort

Day 1

Your bedroom

After six turns, you will automatically take a shower (which will advance the clock by 20 minutes).
In the meantime you could:
open bottom drawer, look under junk (reveals brass knuckles)
open nightstand (reveals camera)
think about [Katie, Maggie, Jeff, Emily, Becky, Renee, Ivy, Samantha, Ms Johnson, Lisa, Lance, Shaun, sex, ufo]

After your shower
open wallet, x debit card (reveals your PIN number), put wallet in pocket
w
s
d
read newspaper

At this point you could ask your mother about [Becky, cock, Dad, Jeff, Katie, Maggie, Mom, Ms Johnson, sex, ufo]. You could also think about other NPCs (as above)

n
eat pancakes (this will automatically advance the clock to 7.52am. The next turn you will automatically go to school, which advances the clock by another 10 minutes)

School – Morning

Now that you're at school you can think about [Contessa, Olivia, Rex] (who you couldn't think about at home for some reason). You will also get new responses from thinking about [Becky, Emily, Katie].

You can examine all the female NPCs (including breasts and ass) for a total of 3 pictures each.

The school scenes feature a lot of repetition, so after the first class I am only going to note the places where something different happens.

School Grounds – Morning

Here you can talk to ('ask about' topics listed):

Renee [Becky, Contessa, cock, drugs, Emily, Jeff, id, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Ivy, Maggie, Me, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, stripclub, ufo]

Ivy [Becky, cheerleading, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Maggie [Becky, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Ms Johnson, Olivia, party, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, tattoos, ufo]

Jeff [Becky, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Mrs Weaver, Ms Johnson, Olivia, party, Renee, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

You can compliment [Ivy, Maggie, Renee]

When you've finished doing whatever you want to do here, go west and enjoy a picture of Katie and the PC kissing.

School Lobby – Morning

Here you can talk to:

Lisa [Rex (only noted because she has a different non-response to it) ]

Emily [Becky, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Mrs Weaver, Olivia, Renee, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Samantha [Becky, cock, cheerleading, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Olivia, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Katie [Becky, cock, Contessa, date, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, me, Mr Hansen, Ms Johnson, Olivia, party, Renee, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Contessa [ballet, Becky, cock, Emily, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shaun, ufo, Ukraine]

You can compliment [Lisa, Emily, Samantha, Katie, Contessa]

Football field – Morning

Here you can talk to:

Olivia [Becky, cheerleading, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Olivia, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Becky [Becky, cheerleading, Contessa, Emily, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Ms Johnson, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, ufo]

Shaun [Becky, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Ms Johnson, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, stripclub, ufo]

Lance [Becky, cock, Contessa, Emily, id, Ivy, Jeff, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Maggie, me, Ms Johnson, Olivia, Rex, Samantha, sex, Shadey, Shaun, stripclub, ufo]

You can compliment [Olivia, Becky]

At 8.30am you will automatically go to class

My Classroom – Morning

You will get new results from thinking about [Becky, Contessa, Emily, Ivy, Katie, Lance, Lisa, Ms Johnson, Ms Williams, Olivia, Renee, Samantha, sex, Shaun, ufo]. Thinking about Ms Johnson will provide you with some interesting information.

You can look at the female NPCs (different pictures from outside), or you can look out the window. You could even study or read your textbook if you wanted.

Class ends at 11am

School – Lunchtime

At this point you can do any talking, thinking etc. that you didn't do before school (although some of them won't work for some reason).

You can compliment Emily (you will get a new response because Katie is not nearby)

At 11.11am there will be a brief cut scene where Rex will challenge you to a fight.

At midday you will automatically go back to class.

My Classroom – Afternoon

You will get a new response from thinking about Rex. Otherwise this will be much like morning class.

Class ends at 2pm

After school

e, e, s, s, e (to walk Katie home)
w, n, n, e, e (to go to outside your house)

Ms Johnson (optional)

sw (to go behind the hedge)
x hole
unzip pants
(there's not much you can do at this point, but you could ask her about sex & cock)
zip pants
ne

Your House

n, up (to go to your room and change out of your uniform)
get camera
w, s, d, s, w, w, s, w, n

Jeff's House

w (to enjoy a shot of Emily in a bikini)
You can compliment Emily, and ask her about [bikini, emily, jeff, sex, tan].
e, up, e
read diary (there are four different entries)
w, w

At this point you will automatically go to the Old Bandshell

pay shadey
ask shadey about info
pay shadey (this is optional, but it opens up different scenes at the massage parlor)
n, w, w, w

Cheerleaders (optional)

w, n
Becky, Ivy, Olivia and Samantha have cheerleader practice every day from 2.45pm to about 3.40pm in the football field. On Day 1 this only gives you a chance to see them in their cheerleader uniforms. Later in the game there will be clues to other scenes (these are noted in the walkthrough)
s, e

Tony

s, s, w, s
knock on door (this will advance the time to 6.02pm)
pay tony (it's preferable to pay Tony now, but you could choose not to)
ask tony about drugs
buy cocaine (optional; unlocks a potential scene with Renee)

At this point you're free to enjoy yourself until it's time to meet Katie. Note that most of the ways you can enjoy yourself cost money, and therefore you can't do all of them. You could save before spending the money and then restore after you've enjoyed the scene, since most of the scenes have no other effect on the game.

Cinema

e
read graffitti
enter stall
get leather wallet

Massage Parlor

pay owner (a regular massage costs $10, if you paid Shadey for the extra information you will get the house special for $20)
w
undress
wear towel
get on table

If you're getting a regular massage, lay back and enjoy it. If you're getting the house special do the following actions:
ask lydia about blowjob
(wait until she wraps her hand around your cock)
ask about blowjob (optional; the scene will progress differently)

Strip Club

dance (you can only do this once)

ask brunette about name
pay jessica ×4 (costing $40 in total)

ask blonde about name
pay cindy ×4 (costing $40 in total)
ask cindy about blowjob
e, n, e
ring bell
pay clerk (costing $20)
e, n
z
pay cindy (costing $25)

Enjoy the scene, assuming you have enough cash to pay for it

Nightclub (opens at 7pm)

pay doorman
e
ask girl about name
ask girl about drink
buy cosmo
give cosmo to girl
buy cosmo
give cosmo to christine (if you continue to ply her with drinks she will eventually pass out and/or throw up)
kiss christine ×3
fuck Christine (the scene will proceed slightly differently if you remove her panties and lick her pussy first)
zip shorts
n

At this point you could also buy a beer and go north to the dancefloor and trigger the Gretchen/Lisa scene (by giving the beer to the goth girl and asking her about Lisa, then repeating that). However, because Lisa is not actually present it seems as though that's a bug, so I prefer to do it on day 3.

Katie

Katie returns home from babysitting at 9.56pm. Enter her house to enjoy a scene with her in the den.

Finally

When you're finished, go home. As you enter your house you will see a UFO.
up, n, e
sleep

END OF DAY 1

Day 2

Your bedroom

At this point you have to decide whether or not you want to 'win' the fight against Rex.

If you beat Rex, Olivia will invite you to a party at her house on Friday. You will also have an opportunity to borrow the key to the staff bathroom (which unlocks a scene with either Katie or Emily).

If Rex beats you, neither of those things will happen. However, Contessa will ask you to tutor her, which will unlock her as a dateable character.

get brass knuckles (if you want to beat Rex)
w, s, d
read newspaper (you could also talk to your mother or think about various NPCs if you wanted)
n

At this point you can talk to your father if you want, but his topics of conversation are limited: [Katie, ufo]

eat scrambled eggs (this will automatically advance the clock to 7.51am. At 7.52am you will automatically go to school, which advances the clock by another 10 minutes)

School – Morning

As usual you can talk to people (only topics with new responses are listed). Note that the Rex response will change again after the fight.

Katie [Rex, sex, ufo]
Ivy [Rex, ufo]
Maggie [Jeff, party, Rex, ufo]
Jeff [id, party, Rex, ufo]
Emily [party, Rex, ufo]
Samantha [Rex, ufo]
Contessa [Rex, ufo]
Olivia [Rex, ufo]
Becky [Rex, ufo]
Shaun [Rex, ufo]
Lance [Rex, ufo]

My Classroom – Morning

Amuse yourself however you please until class finishes at 11am. At that point you will automatically go to the football field for your showdown with Rex.

School – Lunchtime

Wait until Rex shows up. At this point there are two possibilities:
If you have the brass knuckles you will beat Rex, either by directly hitting him or by waiting for him to attack you. When this happens you will be sent to the Principal's office (see below)
If you don't have the brass knuckles, Rex will beat you whatever you do.

Principal's Office (only if you beat Rex)

look under desk
get old key

Wait until the principal returns and sends you back to class.

My Classroom – Afternoon

Amuse yourself however you please until class finishes at 2pm. If Rex beat you, Contessa will ask if you can come over to her house to help her study.

After school

e, e, s, s, e (to walk Katie home)
w, n, n, e, e, n, up (to go to your house and change out of your uniform)

You're due to pick Katie up at around 8 for the party at Maggie's house, but there's a lot you can get done between now and then. As before, most of it costs money so you will need to be selective.

Speaking of the party, now might be a good time to decide if you're going to bring wine (there's a bottle in the kitchen cabinet). Doing so will change the outcome slightly (see Party below).

Contessa (optional if Rex beat you)

Go to her house at 4pm (it's opposite Jeff's house and north of Katie's house). At this stage there's not much you can do with her except 'study'

Massage Parlor

ask owner about house special (only if you got the info from Shadey and didn't ask yesterday)
pay owner (a regular massage costs $10, the house special is $20)
w
undress
wear towel
get on table

Enjoy your massage

Strip Club

See Day 1, as the same strippers are present.

Motel (if you set up a rendezvous with Ms Johnson on Day 1)

ring bell
pay clerk (despite what the sign says you will only pay $20, no matter how long you have the room).
e

Wait until 6pm (you won't be able to enter the motel room until then)

n
z, z, z

Enjoy the sex scene (NB. Ms Johnson is the only woman in the game who likes anal)

zip shorts

Nightclub (opens at 7pm)

pay doorman
e
ask Asian girl about name
compliment mae (you could also choose to not compliment her, which will change what happens later on)

You won't get anywhere, but this sets up a scene in Part 2

At 8.04pm, a "superhot black chick" (Tanya) will arrive on the dancefloor

dance with tanya ×2
ask tanya about drink
s, buy cosmo, n (to save time you could buy the drink before she arrives)
give cosmo to tanya
dance with tanya ×3
s
sit on couch
kiss tanya ×2
w, ne

Enjoy the scene with Tanya. If you're quick you might not even be late to pick up Katie afterwards.

The Party

Pick up Katie from her house at 8pm (you could go straight to the party, but Katie will be a bit annoyed). Wait until everyone has arrived and Maggie starts passing the bong around. What happens next will differ according to whether or not you brought a bottle of wine.

No alcohol

If you don't bring alcohol, you will have the choice of not smoking and just passing the bong to someone else. Unless you give the bong to Katie both times that you have the opportunity, she will drag you up to Maggie's bedroom for a non-interactive sex scene.

If you do give the bong to Katie twice, she will feel sick and ask for you to take her home. You can then return to the party on your own. Once there you can spy on Jeff and Maggie and talk to Emily. In previous versions of the game I was also able to get to know Emily better (as described in the Alcohol path), but I was unable to trigger that when writing this walkthrough.

Alcohol

If you do bring alcohol, you will have to 'smoke bong' before giving the bong to someone else (due to a bug, if you give the bong to someone without smoking it first the game won't advance and you'll be unable to get the bong back).

After Jeff and Maggie go upstairs, if you give the bong to Emily, Katie will start making out with you in front of her, leading to a sex scene. If you give the bong to Katie, she will pass out. This gives you the opportunity of getting to know Emily better:
compliment emily, kiss emily ×5

Either way the party will eventually end and after a brief cut scene it will be 11pm and you'll be standing on Main St. Go home, and go to sleep.

END OF DAY 2

Day 3

Your bedroom

At this point there's not a lot to do that you haven't had an opportunity to do previously.

w, s, d
read newspaper
n
eat oatmeal (this will automatically advance the clock to 7.51am. At 7.52am you will automatically go to school, which advances the clock by another 10 minutes)

School – Morning

As usual you can talk to people (only topics with new responses are listed)

Katie [how she feels, party]
Maggie [jeff, party]
Jeff [maggie, party]
Emily [jeff, katie, maggie, party]
Renee [drugs]

If you give the cocaine to Renee now, she will drag you off to an empty classroom and give you a blowjob. However, if you wait and give the cocaine to her at the stripclub you get a different (and perhaps more interesting) scene.

My Classroom – Morning

Amuse yourself however you please until class finishes at 11am.

School – Lunchtime

Jeff will tell you that Katie has gone home sick. This means that you can ask someone else on a date tonight. Emily is the obvious possibility, but Contessa is also available if you tutored her on day 2.

Note that going on a date means that you will miss out on possible scenes at the nightclub and the stripclub. Additionally, if you date that character again in Part 2 it will affect the outcome slightly.

ask emily/contessa about date
ask emily/contessa about movie
OR
ask emily/contessa about hanging out

The main difference between the two dates is that going to the movies will cost a total of $66 (although the PC will be able to pay the bill by calling his parents, if necessary), while hanging out is free. Another difference is that the most Contessa will do at the movies is kissing and a little fondling, but she's slightly less inhibited in the privacy of your bedroom.

If you have the old key and made out with Emily at the party, you can also have a scene with her in the staff bathroom (this scene is also accessible in Part 2 with either Katie or Emily):
show old key to emily
s
kiss emily

My Classroom – Afternoon

Amuse yourself however you please until class finishes at 2pm.

If you tutored her, Contessa will hand you a note:
read note (it's a not so subtle hint that she is now dateable)

After school

If you haven't already, you could ask either Emily or possibly Contessa out now.

e, e, e, e, n, up (to change out of your school uniform)
w, s, d, s, w, w, s, s, e, e (to visit Katie's house)

Ask Katie's father (Mr Hansen) about Katie and ufo, if you want

n
ask katie about how she feels (there's not much you can do here, but visiting your girlfriend when she's sick is only polite, especially if you're going to be cheating on her this evening)

Cheerleaders (optional)

Practice finishes today at 3.30pm. Becky mentions that she will be laying by the pool.

s, e, e, e, sw
x hole (Becky will appear at 3.46pm)

Massage Parlor

ask owner about house special (only if you got the info from Shadey and haven't asked previously)
pay owner (a regular massage costs $10, the house special is $20)

Strip Club

The brunette stripper is described in Day 1.

ask hot stripper about name
pay roxy ×3 (costing $30 in total)

Nightclub (opens at 7pm)

pay doorman

  2. I've seen a lot of questions regarding where things are, so I've added maps to the walkthroughs.
