Walkthrough: Peril in Pleasantville (Part 2) by Lamont Sandford

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.

Part 2 seems to break a lot of the 'ask about' and 'think about' responses, so you will often get no response (which is also why I mostly haven't bothered listing the available topics).

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 any response, 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 haven't provided explicit instructions for getting from one place to another since this is a non-linear game. A rough map is provided below (click to enlarge)


Created with Trizbort

Code Words

At the end of Part 1 you should have received five different code words. If you followed the Part 1 walkthrough, the different possible code words are as follows (not an exhaustive list):

Animals: Badger (beat Rex), Gorilla (beaten by Rex), Turtle (beaten by Rex but did not tutor Contessa)

Fruits & Vegetables: Apple (hung out with Contessa), Beet (went to the movies with Contessa), Carrot (hung out with Emily), Pear (went to the movies with Emily), Tomato (did not date Emily or Contessa)

Fish: Salmon (Tony paid), Marlin (Tony paid and Mae spoken to), Tuna (Tony not paid and Mae spoken to), Shark (Tony not paid), Minnow (Tony paid and Mae spoken to but not complimented), Flounder (Tony not paid and Mae spoken to but not complimented)

Countries: Brazil (begin with $60), China (begin with $60 plus old key), Japan (begin with $120), France (begin with $120 plus old key)

Shapes: Square (cocaine in inventory and wine in kitchen cabinet), Rectangle (wine in kitchen cabinet), Circle (cocaine in inventory), Hexagon (no cocaine or wine)

If you want to experience the game as one consistent narrative you should enter the words you received in Part 1 (unless you did not receive all five, as some people have experienced).

However, if you just want to enjoy all the possible content in the game, you can take advantage of the code word system. For example, if you used the wine in Part 1 and never bought the cocaine (Hexagon), you could enter Square and have both your inventory for Part 2. Alternatively you could choose not to pay Tony in Part 1, since you can just enter a code word that says you did. You can also use code words in combinations that are impossible to achieve in Part 1. For example using Gorilla and France together, since you can't get the old key if you lose the fight.

Day 4

Your bedroom

At this point there's not a lot to do that you didn't have an opportunity to do in Part 1.

w, s, d
read newspaper
n
eat waffles (this will automatically advance the clock to 7.51am. At 7.52am you will automatically go to school, which advances the clock to 8am)

School – Morning

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

Katie [how she feels]
Maggie [reporter]

My Classroom – Morning

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

School – Lunchtime

If you have the old key, you can show it to Katie (or Emily if you've previously dated her)
show old key to [girl]
s
kiss [girl]
(The scene with Emily is slightly different to the scene possible in Part 1)

If you beat Rex you can ask someone [Katie, Maggie, Emily or Jeff] about the party. Note that if you want to take Emily to the party, you must ask her today otherwise the party won't progress due to a bug.

If Rex beat you, you can ask Katie or Emily out on a date (or Contessa if you tutored her in Part 1). Note that if you dated Emily or Contessa in Part 1 (and entered the appropriate code word) you will not be able to take them on the same date in Part 2.

My Classroom – Afternoon

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

After school

If you haven't already, you can ask someone out on a date (or to the party if you beat Rex).

e, e, s, s, e (to walk Katie home)
n, n, n, w, insert card, input 1864, input 2 ×2, input 3 ×3, input 4 (to empty your account)
e, s, e, e, n, up (to go home and change out of your uniform)

Note that you have to meet Maggie in Berry St at 4.30pm (failing to do so will result in something unpleasant happening to the PC), which limits what you can do at this point.

Cheerleaders (optional)

Practice finishes today at 3.30pm. Becky invites Olivia back to her house.

s, e, e, e, sw
x hole (Becky & Olivia will appear at 3.48pm)

Berry Street

Go to Berry Street, which is west of Katie's house

w (Maggie will arrive at 4.28pm; you cannot enter the house until then)
w
open drawer
get files (if you hang about here for too long, you will get caught)
e, e, e
x files
n, n, e, e, e, e, n, e

Nightclub (opens at 7pm)

Note that if you didn't compliment Mae in Part 1 she will ignore you now, so there's no point in going to the nightclub this evening.

pay doorman
e (Mae will greet you if you complimented her)
compliment mae
ask mae about boyfriend
ask mae about drink
buy beer
give beer to mae

Wait until Mae's sister arrives, and then until they leave for the stripclub.

w, w, s, e, e, e, e, s, s, w
ask mae about contest (you will have to wait until the contest is announced)

Wait until the contest is over, then enjoy what happens next. If you don't encourage Mae to enter, the scene will play out somewhat differently.

Park

If you are in the Park at 9.10pm you will hear a scream coming from the south. If you investigate (or if you visit the bandshell location between 9.10pm and 9.46pm) you will interrupt what appears to be an assault. The girl will be very grateful for your help, leading to a non-interactive scene.

The Dates

Emily – Hanging Out

Pick up Emily from her house at 6pm

compliment katie
kiss katie
lick tits
lick pussy
katie, rub cock ×2
katie, suck cock
fuck katie
(and so on, until the movie is finished)

When the movie ends, you will automatically go back to Katie's house. Kiss Katie to end the date.

(wait until the movie is finished)

When the movie ends, you will automatically go back to Katie's house. Kiss Katie to end the date.

Finally

When you've done everything you want to do (and it's after 11pm) go home and go to sleep.

Day 5

Your bedroom

At this point there's not a lot to do that you haven't had an opportunity to do over the last 4 days.

w, s, d
read newspaper
n
eat bagel (this will automatically take you to school, which advances the clock to 8am)

School – Morning

As usual you can talk to people, etc.

My Classroom – Morning

Amuse yourself however you please until class finishes at 11am.
If you've been invited to the party, Olivia and Becky will ask if you can score some E. This can be bought from Tony, either at his house or at the nightclub. Not buying any E will change the party slightly (preventing a scene with Olivia, but unlocking an extra scene if you take Katie).

School – Lunchtime

If Rex beat you, you can invite Katie or Emily to a picnic (or Contessa if you tutored her in Part 1).
If you beat Rex you can ask [Katie, Maggie, Emily or Jeff] about the party, if you haven't already.

My Classroom – Afternoon

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

After school

If you haven't already, you can ask someone out on a date (or to the party if you beat Rex).

e, e, s, s, e (to walk Katie home)
w, n, n, e, e, n (to change out of your school uniform)
read note
w, s, d
(if you're going on a picnic, go north to the kitchen and grab everything you need, ie. wine, brie, crackers, grapes, bug spray)
s, e, e, n, n, w, s
look under mattress
get meeting note

Shadey

If you haven't made any dates, and you're not going to the party, you will encounter Shadey at the northern end of Thompson Ave after 6pm.
pay shadey
s, s
press buzzer
choose [girl]
choose oral OR choose half

Enjoy the non-interactive scene.

Picnic Date

The picnic date is basically the same for all three girls. To see everything you need to have the crackers, brie, grapes, wine and bug spray (all of which can be found in the kitchen of your house).

Do *not* enter the lakefront location between asking the girl on the date and picking them up. In my own testing I have confirmed that doing so will stop the date from triggering. There may be other things that stop the date from triggering, but I have not personally confirmed them.

Pick up girl at 6pm and go to the park (if Katie is your date, you will go there automatically; otherwise you will have to do so manually)
n (if everything is working you will see "You hold [girl]'s hand and walk with her down the a nice quiet spot near the lake, a perfect spot for your picnic.")
z
kiss [girl]
spray [girl]
spray me
e

Enjoy a non-interactive scene (if you didn't bring the wine, the scene won't go as far)

Moonshine shack

Entering the shack will usually result in the PC being killed by moonshiners. However, at certain times (eg. from 2:58pm to 6:48pm) a farm girl will be present instead and a non-interactive scene will result.

Nightclub (opens at 7pm)

pay doorman
e (if you didn't get the park scene on day 4, there will be a redhead here)
ask redhead about name
ask sara about drink
buy beer
give beer to sara
w

Enjoy a non-interactive scene. This is the same scene that can be triggered in the park on Day 4.

Olivia's Party

If your date is Emily, Maggie or Jeff remember to pick up some E from Tony's (he lives in the house on the south side of Berry St). If you're taking Katie to the party, not buying E will lead to a different scene (see below).

Pick up your date (or Jeff) at 6pm, and go to Olivia's house (it's at the end of Maple St behind the iron gate)
n, n, e (you could also go upstairs, but as far as I know there's nothing of interest there)
Enjoy the scenery until Olivia suggests playing a game

The Game
The party game is essentially random, which means that you'll occasionally get results that break it, so it's wise to save beforehand. If you want a certain result, you'll have to undo and re-spin the bottle until you get it.

There are four rounds. The first three rounds (stripping, kissing, rubbing) are always the same. The fourth round is oral sex if you brought E, and masturbation if you didn't.

If you brought E, there will be a non-interactive scene involving Olivia, the PC and whoever the PC brought with them; after that you can spy on either Becky or Ivy.

If you didn't bring E, the party will end after the fourth round (but if Katie was your date, you'll meet someone on the way home).

Finally

When you've finished everything you want to do (and it's after 11pm) go home and go to sleep.

Day 6

At this point the game becomes much more linear.

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE COMPLETED PERIL IN PLEASANTVILLE!

  1. There is something else wrong with the picnic scene, I've tried it a dozen times and it won't work and I haven't entered the park, lake or bushes on most of those attempts the whole day. I have the grapes, wine, brie and crackers.

    1. I have never gotten this to work. I've tried with all the girls but nothing happens. Spraying me and Spraying the girl then going east - still nothing. Any suggestions?

      Delete
    2. I have eventually got it, but it required me to start a new part 2 and I did nothing at all but wait, the bar minimum of the plot line and go for a picnic. Definitely a bug in the game somewhere, but then there are lots of bugs and I don't think they'll be fixed

      Delete
    3. You need to avoid the lakefront area after making the picnic date, but before taking your date there. You also need to spray your date and yourself before going to the lakefront area, not before going into the bushes.

      Delete
    4. It appears that if you do the Emily dates in the order Cinema first and then Hangout you have sex with her. Then the Picnic does not work for any character.

      Delete
    5. The avoidance of the lakefront isn't the only thing that stops it, I've taken old saves, asked each of the three to the picnic and was careful to not go to that area between. There is definitely something else that stops it, I just don't know what.
      I've gotten all three girls to the picnic now, but some saves just refuse to work.

  2. D.E.L, thanks for all the walkthroughs you've done. You're awesome!

    3 things I noticed in my gameplay...
    I got the Moonshine Girl at 12:46am Friday.
    If you take Emily out to the movie on Wednesday's date, Thursday's 'hang out' date can go to full sex.
    If you're in the park around 9pm (I think it was 9:04) on Thursday (I think, may have been Friday), you will hear a scream and can go south to stop a fake assault, which will lead to a non-interactive MMF threesome.

    1. Oh, and the Emily stuff included messing around at Maggie's party, but not the faculty bathroom. So I don't know how changing those factors might affect the date(s).

      Delete
    2. The park threesome was 9:10pm Thursday (confirmed). Also, I just now realized you had already mentioned the Emily non-interactive scene. Sorry about that.

      Delete
    3. I've previously gotten the fake assault, but for some reason I couldn't get it to trigger on the playthrough where I actually wrote the walkthrough, which is why it it isn't listed.

      Thanks for the info though. I'll try and update as soon as possible.

      Delete
    4. As for the farm girl, I couldn't replicate the encounter at the time I specified. Sadly, I don't remember what conditions I had set (I think I did the alleyway encounter after the party, but I don't remember for sure.)

      Delete
  3. Good job as always.
    On the "spin the bottle" game, is there a command to move to the next round? I've a game where everyone is naked, but it hasn't moved to the kissing round.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The spin the bottle game should automatically move to the next round. However, the outcome of each spin is completely random and a lot of people have reported running into problems because of that, which is why I recommend saving beforehand.

      Delete
    2. Turns out that it's mostly OK if you're there with Katie. If you bring Emily, on the other hand, it will always break as it doesn't move on to the second stage when you remove your boxers. It crashes at some point after that.

      Delete
    3. Supposedly the key to getting this to work right with Emily is to ask her about the party on Thursday. If you wait until Friday, it always breaks.

      Delete
    4. Great job, I can confirm this works.
