This time around the title makes sense. This is based on the two part episode Dreamland. It starts with one email praising your efforts so far.
Then it leads to a much less complimentary second email.
Like the episode this is named after, you have swapped bodies and need to figure out how to get things back to normal.
In the same manner as the previous game you are given a choice - contact the Lone Gunmen or Agent Scully. I'll try both and, again, start with the first option.
This goes to an IRC-looking chat window.
It then leads to a trivia game that spans the series. I think this first question is only mentioned in the first episode of the show. Even then, I'm not sure. I just know the first option is most correct.
I had to find an episode transcript for this one.
This is a trivia question in a previous game in this series.
I couldn't find this one anywhere. It sends you back to the first question if you get any wrong so if you have the other three right you'll eventually get this.
Then there's an explanation that you swapped bodies, something you already knew.
Now there's an email to you, well really to the person you swapped with.
This leads to a mini-game where you demonstrate the fusion thing from the episode.
This is a mini-game type you've played 100 times. If you select a tile it flips between fused/unfused and so do any tiles touching it (not diagonally thankfully). There is some variation of this in many games.
You have to play three rounds to continue.
There's one more email before heading home.
Then there's a game where you're home and have to respond to 4 video clips. You have to play through it a few times because the answers to things like your wife's name are in later clips.
After that it just kind of jumps to a game where you're flying around in, I don't know what, trying to collect purple orbs.
I collected 7 which is probably bad.
Yeah, maybe I needed to collect more. I dunno. It's not explained well.
Much like the previous game, trying to go back to retry the other route crashes. Different error this time though.
Going back to the first choice.. let's try contacting Agent Scully.
OK, that's an instant game over.
The credits screen looks the same as the last game.
Alright, I'm going to try another fresh playthrough. Eventually I got to a puzzle where you have to crack a safe code. The answer is apparently hidden somewhere in the previous video clips.
However, just trying anything causes the game to crash.
This was not a bad idea for a X-Files game. I think the basic premise is fine but the execution is buggy.
