Has anybody managed to make progress through Desolation? There’s no walkthrough or hints that I can find, and I’ve gotten a bit stuck.
I made it through the desert/apartment (Shade homage?) and the tunnels, but now I’m stuck trying to get the bag and rope from the skeleton by the angry monster dog. The dog seems hungry, but my inventory doesn’t include anything edible: I’ve got the pickaxe, the flashlight, a canteen, and my phone, plus a “water” item that might be a bug (it showed up when I just typed “take” at the bottom of the rocky slope) and some makeshift bandages (which I also am not sure whether I’m supposed to have, since I was able to open the bag before dealing with the dog). I can’t find a way to grab a bone to feed the dog, or to play fetch with anything. I’ve also thought of driving the dog off by throwing one of those “softball-sized” rocks at him, but I’m unable to interact with them at all. Not sure whether I’ve missed an item, or need to find some other way to go before progressing… Anyway, a nudge in the right direction would be very much appreciated!
EDIT: OK, figured it out! For anyone in the same boat: you need to ATTACK DOG - I’d been trying to do that with the pick axe but since that didn’t work, and the dog seemed scary, I was overthinking things.
