The biggest fan of Dr. Brain is in the puzzle room. Click and read on the fan.


First you have to play until you go to the crossbar game. When you can see, some names. Choose them. You'll get some funny instructions.


  • Aziza's table from Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire is standing in the puzzle room.
  • In the game, there is a rubber tree in the third floor hallway, and if you examine it, the second sentence of the message will read as follows: "These can be very useful should you fall off a high cliff." This must be a reference to the Sierra-style "death" in The Secret of Monkey Island.
