Poison Packet

Packet of poison received from an EZIC messenger.

Poison Packet Inside

Inside view of packet of poison. To use the poison, the packet needs to be unfolded one more time by clicking the the arrow on the left.

Extremely deadly poison is given to the inspector on day 20 by an EZIC messenger. The inspector is told to use the poison to kill Khaled Istom, an assassin trying to ruin the EZIC plans.

The poison is inside a small package, over a film. Opening the package will reveal the poison with the warning "do not touch powder." If the inspector touches the powder, he will die and collapse, causing the game to return to the title screen.

GameplayEdit

The poison can be applied on Khaled Istom's (or anyone else's) passport by opening the package by clicking on the arrows three times (revealing the instruction "push hard to affix") and then aligning the poison anywhere on the passport and clicking on the film.

If the poison is on the passport, it is safe to touch (for the inspector, at least).

If the inspector hands over the poisoned passport to Istom, two events can occur, both leading to the same long-term objective (helping the EZIC order):

  • If Istom is allowed entry, he will vomit blood on the passage on the right of the booth and then die. A guard will go to check him out and thus killing himself too (presumably he touched the passport and wanted to check the inspector's booth for clues).
  • If Istom is denied entry, he will collapse near the other entrants waiting in the line; two of them will check him and die too.

In both cases, the inspector will help EZIC, which prevents getting ending 20, and will trigger, in the next day's newspaper, the headline "Mysterious poison hospitalizes several."

TriviaEdit

  • It is possible to poison any entrant on day 20. They will die, the day will end and this will count as having failed the EZIC task.
  • It is possible to use the poison without killing anyone by poisoning the passport of an entrant who will be detained (if any appear).
  • Otherwise, the poison will be disposed of at the end of day 20.
