An Elmwood Trail Walkthrough

Missing people cases are one of the most difficult cases to solve which was why when Zoey Leonard, a high school student at Riverstone High, went missing on December 23, 2022, the police were quick to dismiss the case as a runaway after 3 weeks of investigation. However, many people were unconvinced by this conclusion because it wasn’t something characteristic of Zoey, a girl with a loving family, great grades, many friends, and a perfect boyfriend. There didn’t seem to be a reason for her to run away.

You play as Adam Lane, a private detective who’s been having difficulty getting back to his feet at work and seems to also be having problems in his own personal life. After getting a text from an unknown sender and being sent a box with items relating to Zoey Leonard, you are pushed into a missing person case which seems to be more than meets the eye.

an elmwood trail intro

An Elmwood Trail is an interactive mystery thriller game created by Techyonic, the same developers of here – a puzzle game and Swiftle. The game takes an interesting approach to the genre by having you look through two phones, Adam’s and Zoey’s, to solve puzzles and investigate the case. While much of the game is text-based and will prompt you to choose a dialogue option to reply with, these dialogues do not affect the outcome of the game. It only affects the replies of the characters but the ending and sequence of events will always be the same.

Since this game involves a lot of heavy thinking and complex puzzles, it is not uncommon to get stuck in at least one or two puzzles. If you’re invested in the story and need a little help getting through certain parts of the game, our guide is here to assist you in your quest to find Zoey Leonard and uncover the secrets of Riverstone, the popular kids, and the Old Elm tree at Lake Isle.

@Monica, you will see a group of numbers under the person assigned to you then take that number and go to browse app and search nlw.com then enter the number then try to fulfil the boxes of signs in the time of the green sign from 1 side to another. The more you get the more you know about the person
