Welcome To The Future

Walkthrough

By  Mr. Bill

Game produced (1995) by Blue Sky Entertainment


Please Note The Following!

This game is quite complicated in that there are many artifacts to find and many places to go both in the Canyon environment (above ground) and in The Underworld environment. Without having the correct key (artifact) you will not be allowed through doors or warped into other areas where, of course, you will find other necessary artifacts. It is strongly recommended that you follow this walkthrough but allow yourself some time to explore new areas before following the walkthrough again, if necessary. To do this, SAVE after arriving correctly into a new area, and then start exploring and seeing if you can progress correctly on your own for awhile. If you get totally lost (easy to do in this game) restore to where you were before being lost, follow this walkthrough to the next step, then save again, and so on.


Again Please Note The Following!

The game comes with a glossy 8 inch by 10 inch piece of paper with the following poetry on it. It also contains pictures of all the artifacts that can be collected. Some people have bought or traded for copies of this game that no longer contain this piece of paper. The poetry essentially provides the player with the object of the game. The following is that poetry:

The travelers roamed through infinite time
Recording their presence in symbols and rhyme
A message was left for those following to find
Enlightenment comes by seeking the signs

On mystic mountains the sun shines down
The travelers saw and they smiled
They built their temples underground
And scattered their signs for miles
The legends speak of a sacred cave
Of pharaohs and lenses and light
And of six golden signs through which wisdom shines
When placed in the pharaoh's sight


INTRODUCTION


  1. The intro begins the experience into WELCOME TO THE FUTURE. Click the mouse to jump directly to the START SCREEN.

  2. The START SCREEN allows the user to access the HELP section and the RESTORE function of WTTF. The restore function will let the user start a saved game from the CD or one they have already created themselves. The user can also simply start the game. The game will default to the CHALLENGE mode.

  3. The HELP section gives access to the SPEED, TRAVEL, and TIPS Screens. These screens tell the user ways to speed up system performance, explains the navigation and gives extra general tips. The MODE button lets the user select CHALLENGE or EXPLORE mode. Challenge is the default mode and makes the user FIND all the keys while the Explore mode GIVES the user all the keys.

  4. Starting, the user must explore multiple different environments to find the hidden artifacts that are the keys to the experience. The user must collect six golden symbols and take them to the pharaoh's cave in order to enter The Voyage.

CLICK ON ANY COMBINATION OF 6 KEYS AND/OR BALLS (listening to each of the 6 messages completely) in order to be offered another GOLDEN SYMBOL. The complete poetic song follows below.

    Think about the ancient ways
    Seems they had a lot to say
    No one knows how to read the signs
    Secrets lost to the sands of time

    Forget the why
    Forget the when
    Shadows in the corners of the minds of men
    When you realize
    Look up to the skies
    Prepare a place
    Soon they will be coming

    What the hell are you waiting for?
    Get yourself right through that door
    Something cries from the other side
    Something from which you cannot hide

    Who can tell where time begins?
    How do you know they're not your friends?
    Darkened eyes that reflect the moon
    Don't you know that they're coming soon

    CLICK ON THE GOLDEN SYMBOL to take it, and it will then be in the 6th position at the bottom of your screen. CLICK ON THE WORDS: GRAFFITI KEYS to Exit and then turn RIGHT and go FORWARD to return to the Canyons World. Back in the canyon, turn RIGHT then go FORWARD 4 TIMES.

  91. The player is now in the middle of several different trails that need to be explored. Turn LEFT, then go FORWARD. This trail leads the player in search of another artifact (for there are many more to find). Go FORWARD, turn LEFT, then FORWARD 3 TIMES.

  93. Go BACK again to turn around, then FORWARD 3 TIMES. Turn LEFT, then go FORWARD again. Turn RIGHT TWICE, then go FORWARD 4 TIMES. CLICK ON THE ARTIFACT and collect the key for the world: "A CAVE TO THE FUTURE". Go BACK to turn around, then FORWARD 4 TIMES.

  94. Turn LEFT to face the tree, then (with your cursor toward the right trail) go FORWARD TWICE. Then go BACK to turn around.

  95. Here are 2 more trails. Take the left trail and go FORWARD 4 TIMES, turn LEFT, then go FORWARD 3 MORE TIMES.

  96. Here the player is one location away from the entrance to the underworld, but we want to explore ELECTRIC RAIN, so go RIGHT then FORWARD. Then CLICK ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN ON THE RIGHT. Then CLICK ON THE SYMBOL.

  97. Possessing the key that matches the impression on the rock enables the player to experience this world. ELECTRIC RAIN is an ART and MUSIC piece that has full screen iridescent graphics mixed with a modern rock soundtrack. Go FORWARD. This screen enables the user to choose art pieces to view individually. CLICK ON THE GOLDEN SYMBOL that is offered to take it. It will then be in the 5th position at the bottom of your screen. To leave, CLICK ON THE EXIT BUTTONS.

  98. Go BACK to turn around, then turn LEFT and go FORWARD 6 TIMES. This location has a hidden trail branch on the left. So go LEFT, then FORWARD 3 TIMES. The trail dead-ends, but turn RIGHT to go into the cave, then go FORWARD 4 TIMES.

  99. Here is the CAVE TO THE FUTURE. CLICK ON THE IMPRESSION IN THE SKY and access will be granted. Experience full screen, vibrant, living ART and MUSIC throughout this world.

To leave, CLICK ON THE EXIT BUTTONS. Then go BACK to turn around.

  101. Turn LEFT, go FORWARD 3 TIMES, turn LEFT again, go FORWARD, and turn RIGHT. The Message at the entrance to the PHARAOH'S CAVE is carved into the rock guarding the cave. Go FORWARD.

  102. Here, hidden in his cave, the PHARAOH awaits YOU, to bring him the 6 GOLDEN SYMBOLS in order to begin the final VOYAGE. CLICK ON THE PHARAOH. The finale of the quest is a 5 1/2 minute movie entitled: THE VOYAGE.

Every step upon the road I get
another stone ahead
Wheels will roll, and as I go
I find direction

It's in motion
There's No Turning Back
Pushing forward
There's No Turning Back

Miles and miles
A thousand trials
A million smiles
Waves and Waves
Crashing on the sand
For days and days

Currents travel
There's No Turning Back
Rugs unravel
The tearing of the tracks
There's No Turning Back
