PlushSpiffo.pngThis article is about the consumable item affecting the player's mood. For magazines that teach recipes, see Recipe Magazines.

A magazine is a literature item.


A magazine reduces a medium amount of boredom and a small amount of stress. Once used it is effectively 'consumed' and disappears from the player's inventory.


It can also be used as a fuel for a heat source, and lasts for 15 mins if done so.


Magazines are commonly found in the drawers and closets of many houses, but can also be found in crates and in kitchen counters.

It was a traditional point-and-click adventure game featuring a "colourful" protagonist by the name of Mia (cover), who is found naked in the woods of the decaying Seahorse Island, by Dr. Carter, upon whom takes her to the local hospital, where she is dressed in a nurse's attire.
