The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow Walkthrough

This guide is meant to help you through the game without spoiling too much.

Choices (lie or tell the truth) are not listed as they don’t influence the story so you can pick whatever you fancy.
You don’t have to follow Day 1 and Day 2 step-by-step; you decide what you want to do next yourselves. If you’re stuck or unsure about what you’ve already done, you can always come back here and check.
