Covet's involvement in Litzer's murder cast a shadow on the whole sugar prohibition.

"It's not just about Litzer's murder - Covet enforces the sugar prohibition for his own needs. You and Sam need to find proof."


Detective: I need to talk to you, Sam. I'm afraid your boss is a criminal, responsible for Litzer's death.

Sam Lowry: Don't be absurd! I know Covet can be ruthless at times, especialy when he enforces the candy crush prohibition...

Detective: I mean it literally: Covet is a crook. He hired an assassin to kill me, Sam. He's responsible for Litzer's death. These are criminal charges offenses.

Sam Lowry: And the prohibition? Oh... I see... He's just using the law for his own gain! But you will need strong evidence to convince the voters in the first place and bring Covet down.

Detective: That's why I need you, Sam. We need to work together on this one.


Detective: Remember how did it all start? The sugar prohibition changed this city, but how did it affect the city's elite or the big deal business?

Sam Lowry: Hmmm... I never wondered about that. I was just an intern when the prohibition started.

Detective: Well, it's about time to find out.

If you fail:

Detective: The prohibition obviously made a lot of people discontent, but I can't figure out who gained and who lost the most.

If you win:

Detective: It all makes sense! Paul Litzer was investigating the first days of the sugar prohibition...

Detective: Pola, I need you to browse your father's notes. Is there anything about the how the prohibition impacted business or the economy?

Pola Chapelle: Let me see... I've got it! After the sugar prohibition was announced, a lot of sugar-related companies were forced to leave the city.

Detective: That means a lot of people lost money and they probably hold a grudge against Covet now... Thanks Pola, that's a solid lead!

Suspect Identification: A Game of SconesEdit

Sam Lowry: I've heard about your conversation with Pola. You think an enemy of our enemy is our friend. We can recruit the help of someone who's business was crippled by Covet.

Detective: Correct. We just need to find the right person.

Solution: Jane Honda

If you fail:

Detective: It seems Covet wiped out all opposition when he came to power. No use looking for them now.

If you win:

Detective: You never told me about your sweet past, Mrs. Honda.

Jane Honda: You never asked. Yes, I was running a successful candy factory, before Covet introduced the prohibition.

Detective: You managed to move on. How about other industrialists?

Jane Honda: Most tried moving production outside the city, but with dwindling demand, I doubt they broke even.

Jane Honda: I don't know why are you going after Covet, bit I managed to get to know Sam Lowry and I believe we play on the same team. I'll get you a list of companies to help in your hunt.

Crime scene search: House of CrumbsEdit

Detective: All right, this is one of those candy factories.

Sam Lowry: Seems oddly quiet.

Detective: Yeah. You better stay here. I'm going to check it out.

When you enter the room west of electrical

Detective: Where's the equipment? The vats, the machines? It almost looks lie someone moved everything out of the factory...

If you fail:

Detective: There's nothing in here. I better get out. Somebody might catch me here any time.

If you win:

Detective: Bingo! The molasses residue on this truck means it was used to transport the candy-making equipment out of the factory.

City search: Cakewalk EmpireEdit

Detective: Someone's been moving the candy equipment, Sam. I need to know where to.

Sam Lowry: Hmmm... my access to the company's files is limited, but I see it went bankrupt and was bought cheaply by a company operating from the city.

Detective: Thanks. With your info and the registration plates of the truck, I can find out where the equipment is now.

The candy equipment is:

  • exactly 5 from a shop
  • in the distance of 1 from water
  • exactly 4 from a café
  • not more than 7 from a restaurant
  • more than 1 from post offices
  • more than 1 from libraries
  • more than 1 from factories
  • not 2 from fast foods
  • On the map there are 5 shops
  • On the map there are 3 cafés
  • On the map there are 2 restaurants
  • On the map there are 2 post offices

Solution: (8,5)

If you fail:

Sam Lowry: The candy equipment is nowhere to be found. Maybe it was just sold for scrap?

Detective: Maybe. Or someone carefully covered their tracks. Anyway, we have no way of knowing the truth.

If you win:

Detective: Woah! The soap factory isn't a soap factory at all. It has a complete assembly line for mass candy production!

Sam Lowry: And the majority stakeholder for the factory is... Covet!

Detective: Correct. And have you heard about the real estate swindle Paul Litzer was investigating? This was one of the real estates...

Sam Lowry: You were right. Covet forced the candy industry into bankruptcy, and then bought what was left of their equipment. Furthermore, he killed Litzer because the journalist was close to the truth.

Detective: Uh-huh. And we know the best person to give this information to.


If you fail:

Sam Lowry: Are you sure that Covet is guilty? Because we've been running all day and never found a single proof.

Detective: Yeah, I know. I need to get to my office and check my notes. Maybe I missed something important...

If you win:

Jane Honda: I've seen your photos and read your report. So you want to finally bring down Covet.

Detective: Yes. And we need your help. Lowry will gather the city council and put forward the motion for an inspection at the factory. You need to back him up, maybe organize a press conference.

Jane Honda: With pleasure. I'll prepare everything and wait for the best moment to strike.
