Somerville Cheats and Tips
Don’t Worry About The Dog
Even though you’ll be playing as the father for most of the game, you’ll have a recurring companion in the family dog. After the father recovers, the dog is the first to see him on his way out. The dog is mainly there to provide emotional support since they don’t appear to serve any gameplay purpose.
However, as you make your way along the path, you’ll find some point where it’ll seem like the dog can’t follow. Although it’s tempting to pick them up, you can’t, and there’s no need to, keep going without them, the dog will always find a way to you.
Always Target Energy Sources
There are many mechanics in the game, but the core of gameplay and puzzles revolve around light manipulation. The father is equipped with a strange device on his right arm that generates energy in different colors. On its own, it doesn’t appear to do much, but when it comes into contact with a light source, it can manipulate the properties of alien residue.
