The Sexy Brutale is a deliciously dark murder mystery, where only you, Lafcadio Boone, can help stop numerous party guests from meeting their grisly ends. The puzzles start off simple enough, but will soon require you to use a combination of acquired powers and the unique time travel mechanic to help save the attendees.

The fifth victims you need to save are Greyson Grayson and Redd Rockridge. This delightful duo is planning to steal a priceless egg from the mansion, but end up in a deadly magician's act which leaves Redd electrocuted and Greyson skewered by swords in a cage.

But that doesn't need to be their ultimate fate -- read on to learn how to save them.  

Solving the Murders of Greyson and Redd in The Sexy Brutale

From your start point, head to the room marked below with the bloody shield.

 

You'll need to wait patiently for the thieving duo to leave the room. At about 2:45pm, they should have left. Once they've gone, go to the open safe and grab the lighter.

 

 

Now go back to your starting point. Towards the southwest of the room is a candle. Light it with the lighter.

 

 

The light from these candles allows you to see and converse with ghosts. This is handy, because shortly after a ghost will appear in the room. If you talk to him, you'll learn that there is a circuit breaker hidden behind a bookcase in the library. This will be marked on your map.

 

 

You can go to that location to familiarize yourself with it, but there's not much point -- since if you head west to the theater, you'll trigger a cutscene which will restart the day anyway. However, it might be useful for you to learn its location beforehand -- it isn't essential, though.

 

 

Once the day restarts, head straight there and activate the circuit breaker.

 

 

To turn off the electricity, you also need to activate two switches simultaneously. One is in the room with the circuit breaker, which is where Redd will come. If you want to get the full experience, you can spy on him trying to unsuccessfully turn off the power. You need to note the exact times he pulls the lever: 8:40pm, 8:55pm, 9:10pm, 9:25pm and 9:40pm.

With this information, you need to restart the day. When you wake up, go to the room with the other lever in it, marked below with the bloody shield.

 

 

It may be easier to use the grandfather clock to fast-forward time to 8pm, as this will save you waiting, and negate the need to dodge past anyone who comes into rooms you're in. Whichever option you choose, simply go to this room and pull the lever as soon as the clock hits one of the times mentioned above.

 

 

Thanks to Redd pulling the other lever at the same time, the electricity will be turned off, and both Redd and Greyson will be saved!

 

You've now prevented five out of the seven murders. Don't flag -- you're not far from the end!

The Sexy Brutale Walkthrough - How to Solve the Murder of Tequila Belle https://www.gameskinny.com/ei5aq/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-tequila-belle https://www.gameskinny.com/ei5aq/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-tequila-belle Fri, 28 Apr 2017 05:25:45 -0400 Rob Kershaw

The Sexy Brutale is a deliciously dark murder mystery, where only you -- Lafcadio Boone -- can help stop numerous party guests from meeting their grisly ends. The puzzles start off fairly simple, but will soon require you to use a combination of acquired powers and the unique time travel mechanic to help save the attendees.

The fourth victim you need to save is Tequila Belle. The southern siren is tricked into using her powerful voice on stage in front of mosaic glass, which shatters and fatally wounds her. It may take a few attempts to understand how the staff and Tequila are involved, but the solution to preventing her death is actually very simple and doesn't require any time travel. Read on to find out more!

Solving the Murder of Tequila Belle in The Sexy Brutale

Firstly, from your starting point on the first floor go to the room with the ice-cold barrier highlighted below. You'll now be able to see that the barrier is actually three ghosts, since the mask you received from Willow makes them visible. Talk to them, and they'll let you past.

 

Move quickly to the music practice room with the record player in, marked below by the bloody shield.

 

In here, remove the vinyl record from the player.

 

The clock is still ticking, so hurry eastward and go to the storage closet in Tequila Belle's dressing room.

 

Once there, put the vinyl record you just picked up onto the record player.

 

Head back to the atrium on this floor, south of the concert room. This is marked by the bloody shield below.

 

You need to wait for the murderous staff pianist to hear the noise of the record, and leave to investigate.

 

Once he does, go inside the concert hall and grab the red key from the piano, marked with a yellow circle.

 

Hurry now, as this is critical! Rush back to Tequila Belle's dressing room and lock the door to the storage cupboard using the key you just collected.

 

That's it! The pianist is locked in and can no longer play the song which caused Tequila's voice to fatally shatter the glass.

Great work -- you've saved Tequila Belle and have gained the use of her mask! This allows you to shatter vases and windows made from mosaic glass, which the lady in red gets you to demonstrate on the back window.

As a reward for your success, the lady pushes you through the hole to the floor below. There's nothing like a bit of encouragement to solve the next murder... You're halfway through -- don't lose hope!

The Sexy Brutale Walkthrough - How to Solve the Murder of Willow Blue https://www.gameskinny.com/9mhbg/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-willow-blue https://www.gameskinny.com/9mhbg/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-willow-blue Wed, 26 Apr 2017 13:44:04 -0400 Rob Kershaw

The Sexy Brutale is a deliciously dark murder mystery, where only you -- Lafcadio Boone -- can help stop numerous party guests from meeting their grisly ends. The puzzles start off fairly simple, but will soon require you to use a combination of acquired powers and the unique time travel mechanic to help save the attendees.

The third victim you need to save is Willow Blue. This is a little different as it's a suicide, but it's instigated by a nefarious demon who has bewitched the poor guest. It also requires you to restart the day a few times to ensure you have all the information you need. Don't worry -- this guide will walk you through all the steps!

Solving the Murder of Willow Blue in The Sexy Brutale

Firstly, go to the room marked below with the bloody shield and hide in the wardrobe.

 

Trinity will eventually turn up along with one of the staff at around 2:25pm. By using your new power (i.e. holding R2 on your controller) you'll be able to listen to the staff member's whispering and obtain the door code. If you miss it, don't worry. Trinity will come back in and also whisper it, giving you a second chance to catch it.

 

 

Go to the room to the left of this one (see the bloody shield on the map), and use the code on the door there.

 

 

Once through, head upstairs and make your way to the room with the big fish in the tank.

 

 

You'll see a winding key on the floor -- grab this, and then move to the room with the grandfather clock to save your game. Don't forget to use your pocket watch on the clock too, to ensure future restarts begin here!

 

 

You now need to find Willow's body in this room:

 

 

Just before Willow hangs herself, she drops a bone key. You'll see it marked with a yellow circle -- grab this, because it's important.

 

 

Now move to Willow's study (marked by the bloody shield) and use the bone key on the odd desk.

 

 

Inside is a recipe for the hungry charm, an item you may have come across earlier. Don't worry if you had no idea about its use -- that will be explained shortly.

 

 

The map will also point out where you need to feed the hungry charm. But first you need to discover the location of the secret passage that you'll ultimately use the charm on. Since too much time has passed, you need to restart time (press L1 on the controller), and reset to 12pm. 

As soon as the day begins again, head to the corridor adjacent to the room with the paintings in it.

 

 

Spy into the painting room, and you'll eventually see Willow open the skull painting and head in.

 

 

You're almost done. Restart the day again, and immediately head to the room left of your starting point. Collect the hungry charm on the floor.

 

 

Now go to the first recipe location marked on your map -- "Hungry Charm First Meal" -- and use the hungry charm on the fish in the right-hand tank.

 

 

Then go to the location marked "Hungry Charm Second Meal" and use the hungry charm on the big tank there too. 

 

 

The charm is ready! Quickly head over to the painting room, head through the secret door and use the charm on the spooky door.

 

 

Go inside, and up the stairs. You'll see the fish tank is constantly supplied with water.

 

 

All you need to do is wait for Willow to come in and light the candle, and as soon as she does, turn the wheel to move the pipe over -- it will extinguish it a few seconds later.

 

 

Congratulations! The brainwashing ritual is broken, and Willow is free from its spell. You've now earned a new mask which will allow you to speak with the many ghosts roaming the mansion. Three of the murders in The Sexy Brutale are solved, but you're far from done...

The Sexy Brutale Walkthrough - How to Solve the Murders of Clay Rockridge and Trinity Carrington https://www.gameskinny.com/i4557/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murders-of-clay-rockridge-and-trinity-carrington https://www.gameskinny.com/i4557/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murders-of-clay-rockridge-and-trinity-carrington Thu, 13 Apr 2017 06:00:18 -0400 Rob Kershaw

The Sexy Brutale is a deliciously dark murder mystery, where only you -- Lafcadio Boone -- can help stop numerous party guests from meeting their grisly end. The puzzles start off fairly simple, but will soon require you to use a combination of acquired powers and the unique time travel mechanic to help save the attendees.

The second victims you need to save are Clay Rockridge and Trinity Carrington. Though there are two people, you will be able to prevent both of their murders at once. Simply follow this guide!

Solving the Murders of Clay and Trinity in The Sexy Brutale

From your start point, make your way to the security room, marked below on the map.

 

Once there, head over to the far left and pick up the security code for the cameras dotted around the place.

 

Now you need to beam the security footage to the main screen where Clay is drinking away his sorrows. Head over to the right-hand side of this room, and activate the CCTV monitor


 

With that done, all that's left is to show Clay exactly what's happening to Trinity, in order to break him out of his stupor. Head to this location (marked with the bloody shield):

 

In here, locate the keypad on the wall and use it -- this activates the security camera in the next room. Trinity is being attacked by a huge spider, and Clay needs to see it.

 

Once activated, the camera feed is beamed to the screen in Clay's location, and he rushes off to save Trinity, thereby preventing both of their deaths.

Hurrah! You've just solved the first two murders in The Sexy Brutale. But there are plenty more to go...

The Sexy Brutale Walkthrough - How to Solve the Murder of Reginald Sixpence https://www.gameskinny.com/gudtr/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-reginald-sixpence https://www.gameskinny.com/gudtr/the-sexy-brutale-walkthrough-how-to-solve-the-murder-of-reginald-sixpence Wed, 12 Apr 2017 07:34:16 -0400 Rob Kershaw

The Sexy Brutale is a deliciously dark murder mystery, where only you -- Lafcadio Boone -- can help stop numerous party guests from meeting their grisly end. The puzzles start off fairly simple, but will soon require you to use a combination of acquired powers and the unique time travel mechanic to help save the attendees.

Reginald Sixpence is the first victim, and his death acts as a kind of tutorial to the game. However, what you need to do isn't clearly spelled out, so if you're getting stuck early on, follow this guide!

Solving the Murder of Reginald in The Sexy Brutale

From your starting point, you'll need to spy on the adjacent room, and wait for Reginald Sixpence to come in and rummage through the safe. His location is marked with the bloodied shield below:

Reginald Sixpence, Shield, Bloodied, The Sexy Brutale

 

As he looks through the safe, you'll see a bullet fall out unnoticed. When Sixpence leaves, enter the room and collect it. The yellow item icon will show you that it can be picked up. It turns out to be a blank cartridge -- interesting!

The Sexy Brutale

 

Now move to the room with the animal rug in it.

The Sexy Brutale

 

In here you'll see a gun mounted on the wall. Simply go over to it, and select the blank bullet you picked up earlier to use it with the gun. Lafcadio will switch out the bullets.

When the gun is then fired by the attempted murderer, Sixpence will not die and will knock out the assailant. Your first murder is prevented!
