Pentiment is a narrative-driven game that puts you in the shoes of Andreas Maler, a painter who finds himself in mysterious events in the 16th Century. During Act One, you must piece information about a murder with limited time. Throughout the days, you can choose how to spend your work time and who to dine with for meals. The story can unfold in numerous ways depending on who you interact with and how.
While investigating the murder, you will uncover key details about the suspects by traveling around and speaking to townspeople. One way to find out more information during Act One is to sneak into the library at night.
How to sneak into the library in Act 1
To sneak into the library successfully, you want to have a meal with Lucky's family or follow him around for a workday. He will mention that he stumbled upon a secret door in the crypt. After hearing this information, go to the church crypt when it is time to sleep. Walk to the right as far as possible and select the statue. After looking at the statue, you should be able to touch the key in the statue's hand, which opens the door.
You will then have access to the library, which will lead you to discover key information about two suspects and can help solve Ferenc’s Volvelle Puzzle. Sneaking into the library is a great source of information, and your actions there can help later in the Occult Hands quest with Brother Mathieu.
After sneaking into the library, you can ask Matlida and Cecilia questions about the murder, unlocking new key information that can be used later.
