Greek password puzzleHints
One of the trickiest puzzles in the game requires you to enter passwords based on paintings, except that the keyboard you use to enter the password uses the Greek alphabet. There are clues to help you translate them correctly, but if you’re having trouble with the Greek password puzzle, use the video guide below for help.
Most of the time, you will save your game through an auto-save system. However, you can save manually at a few terminals located throughout the game. These terminals let you save in four different save slots. (Auto-save always overwrites the previous auto-save.)
Using the attack button while not aiming will allow you to perform a melee attack with your equipped weapon.
If you shoot at an enemy’s leg, you can temporarily slow them down and give yourself time to get past.
You’ll need to load magazines with ammo in order to reload your gun.
There is a faster reload option that lets you reload immediately, but you drop the magazine that was in your gun and you’ll need to pick it up to keep it.
If you need to escape quickly, you can sprint. However, you have a limited amount of stamina, so you’ll only be able to sprint for a short amount of time.
Don’t try to kill every enemy. Resources are scarce and it’s often much better to hurt an enemy just enough for you to get past, rather than waste precious ammo trying to kill each one.
Healing items can be combined to strengthen their effects.
There is an emphasis on exploration and puzzle-solving similar to classic survival horror games, and you’ll be required to find keys and solve puzzles in order to proceed.
Take your time and pay attention to everything around you. You’ll also want to read notes carefully in case they contain clues you need to solve a puzzle.
There are certain encrypted documents that will require you to go to a real website and enter the corresponding codes in order to read their contents, for extra lore and storytelling.
Resident Evil referencesEaster Eggs
Daymare includes numerous references to the Resident Evil series, not only because it was inspired by them but because the project actually began as a fan-made remake of Resident Evil 2 before that was shut down and eventually led to the development of Daymare in its place.
These references include:
- A letter from “Admiral Shinji M,” a reference to Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami
- An email addressed to “Dearest Alma,” just like one of the notes in the first Resident Evil
- The city’s founder is named Spencer Crackhorn, a reference to Oswell Spencer, owner of the Spencer Mansion and one of the founders of Umbrella; his office might be a reference to Spencer as well
- A typewriter located in the founder’s office and safe room music
- A nameplate for A. Wong, referencing Ada Wong
- Liev’s design and mission, which have several similarities to HUNK
- Graffiti about V-Jolt, the chemical used in the first Resident Evil to defeat Plant 42; the formula is also found written down
- A chalk drawing of a railroad like one seen in Resident Evil 3
- Locations that resemble areas from Resident Evil 2, most notably the S.T.A.R.S. office, where the H.A.D.E.S. office has a very similar layout
- A letter from a woman named Annette complaining about her husband spending too much time in the sewers and references a crocodile in the sewers, referencing Annette Birkin and the crocodile from Resident Evil 2
- The Cleaner’s voice actor is Paul Haddad, the original voice actor of Leon in Resident Evil 2
- A picture on a bulletin board that references Back to the Future, which doubles as a Resident Evil reference since Resident Evil 2 and 3 also had a Back to the Future photo on a bulletin board
- There are many more references to Resident Evil and other pieces of popular media throughout the game.
Metal Gear Solid referenceEaster Eggs
There is a nameplate for M. Silverburgh, a reference to Meryl from Metal Gear Solid. There is also a radio frequency that matches Meryl’s codec.
Dino Crisis referenceEaster Eggs
A magazine can be found that references an island disappearing due a mysterious energy experiment. This is a reference to the Dino Crisis series.
Scream referenceEaster Eggs
There is a movie poster for a movie called Shout, with the title and poster art clearly being a reference to the movie Scream.
All Collectible Locations (Documents, Audio Logs, ID Cards, Deer)Hints
There are numerous collectibles hidden throughout the game in the form of documents and files, audio logs, ID cards, and puppet deer. They don’t save automatically, so if you pick up a collectible and then die before you can save, you’ll need to go after the collectible again. If you’re having trouble finding any of them, use the video guide below for help. The guide also includes puzzle solutions and some of the easily missable achievements/trophies.
