The Sexy Brutale is an adventure game filled with black humour. The game’s action takes place inside the titular mansion The Sexy Brutale which was converted by an enigmatic man known as Marquis into a bizarre casino. You take control of a priest named Lafcadio Boone. During just one day every guest gets murdered by the casino’s staff. You, however, have the chance to save them, as – just like in Groundhog Day – you fall into a time loop in which the disastrous day repeats itself again and again.
In The Sexy Brutale, the player needs to get familiar with the circumstances of each murder – most often by observing its course for a number of times. With this knowledge, you can devise a plan that will prevent the tragedy. While doing so, you find out about the history of the mansion and the purpose for killing the guests. Together, there are nine people to be saved – each of them is extremely eccentric and the way he or she dies is also very creative.
Exploration, chatting, and solving puzzles play the key roles in The Sexy Brutale. The title also features sporadic stealth challenges. The mansion is divided into a number of sections – each introduces different puzzles, characters, and scenarios.

More About The Sexy Brutale
In this chapter, you will find a complete walkthrough of the first stage of The Sexy Brutale, in which you have to complete the tutorial and save one of the casino’s guests – Reginald Sixpence.
Individual problems are discussed in their corresponding chapters.
After starting new game, you will be taken into the tutorial – it’s mandatory. The tutorial is divided into two stages, which will get you acquainted will all the game’s mechanics as well as introduce you to the story of the first mission. At this stage you only have to follow the game’s commands. Remember that the first mission is set within the same events as tutorial – it’s also fairly easy.
At the end of the tutorial, you will get a pocket watch which allows to turn time back to a starting point if events should go south at any point.
Remember that everything you do has to be done during one day that will keep repeating until you manage to save the potential victim.
Time for the adventure. The game proper will begin in the same room that tutorial began in.
Right now, you can only wait for Reginald to appear in the next room.
Bear in mind that you can’t stay in one room with him, so just approach the door and peep through the keyhole.
Reginald will open the safe to look for something. While he’s at it, an empty cartridge will fall out from the safe.
Wait until Reginald leaves the room and enter right in.
Ignore other objects and approach the cartridge instead (1).
Pick it up and exit through the door (2).
Use the doors highlighted above in order to get to the room with a shotgun.
Swap the bullet
While in the room, approach the shotgun and, by pressing “Z” interact with it. Of course, you have to do this before the murderer takes it.
When you interact with it, you need to swap the bullet from the cartridge chamber with the blank cartridge you found.
Then, you’ll need to enter the wardrobe (marked above) in order for the murderer not to pot you when he comes to pick up the shotgun.
Finishing the quest
If you’ve done everything properly, a scene will soon commence, in which Reginald manages to defend against the murderer.
Finally, the woman from the tutorial will appear and provide you with Reginald’s mask.
Reginald will also repair your pocket watch, giving you more control over the game time.
The following chapter contains a complete walkthrough for the first part of The Sexy Brutale. In this chapter you must save two casino visitors – Clay Rockridge and Trinity Carrington.
Specific tasks of the level are described in the adequate sections.
Set a starting position
Before you get to saving the guests, first you must meet with the woman from the tutorial. She will explain a new gameplay mechanic to you. You can use the key she gives you to turn the clocks in the mansion. After turning, the clock will be working and you will be able to synchronize your pocket watch with it. This will enable you to start the game in that room after the day restarts. Remember that you can only use one key per one clock. The location of the keys will be marked in the guide.
First you must leave the room through the door on the right.
You will be in front of the casino door. Walk through it.
A short cutscene will be triggered. During it you will receive a clock key. When the woman disappears, walk towards the clock and use the key to fix it. Then use the Z key again to synchronize the watches. Once all is done, press F1 to restart day.
Use the door marked on the above picture after a new day starts.
The door will lead to another room of the casino. Use the last door on the left to continue the task. If you’re performing all the actions without resetting the day, you shouldn’t encounter anyone there.
You will enter a corridor shown above. Use the marked door to enter the monitoring room.
Walk towards the list in the left corner of the room and interact with it. You will obtain codes that will enable you to turn the cameras on and off in the mansion.
After obtaining the codes you must enter one of the rooms and use the console to activate the camera that is needed for this mission. Go back to the corridor while avoiding the employee. Use any path you want to enter the room in which you started the mission. You must stay there at least until 4 PM. Then use the marked door.
You will enter another room. You must pass through it.
Use the panel in the next room. You will activate the camera (1). Now you must return to the monitoring room and use the marked door (2). Behind it there is a room you visited previously. From it you can enter the corridor that leads to the monitoring room.
After entering the room you can notice that the previously snowy screen now shows the footage from the darker room. Interact with the monitoring console to check the footage from the room in which Clay is playing cards.
If you completed all actions before the guests die, a cutscene will be triggered. During it Clay will save Trinity. Once all is done, both of them will take off their masks. The woman from the tutorial will appear and provide you with Trinity’s mask.
From now you can hear all the whispers. This means that if someone is saying something and it appears as stars (****), by pressing space you can see exactly what he is saying.
The day will restart and your task will be to save the next person. Description of further challenges can be found in the next chapter of the walkthrough.
Go to the nearby room during the next day. Then enter the room in which previously you had to activate the camera. Hide in the closet shown on the picture and wait.
While in the closet you will see Trinity trying to enter the closed room. Employee will appear and interrupt her. The woman will enter the nearby room for a moment and the employee will enter the code to close the door. Notice the Trinity mask appearing in the upper left corner of the screen.
Press space and you will learn the code. You don’t need to enter it manually. From now the door secured with this code will open whenever you interact with them.
Leave the closet at right time and press F1 to start the day from the beginning.
The person you must save in this mission can be found on the higher floor of the mansion. You must set a new starting position to have more time to act.
Go directly to the nearby room after restarting the day.
There you must use the code you obtained to reach the previously unavailable area of the mansion.
Walk through the corridor in front of you. You shouldn’t encounter anyone.
Interact with the area next to the stairs to go to the higher floor.
Once upstairs, use the door marked on the above picture.
You will enter the corridor shown above. Use the marked door to enter the nearby room.
Inside you will find another clock key. Go back to the corridor.
On the corridor you must go to the door shown on the picture.
You will find yourself near a bell. Use the exit to reach the place where you will continue your actions.
In the location first you must fix the clock and then synchronize it with your pocket watch by using the Z key. If you are sure you changed your starting position, press F1 once you’re ready and start the day again.
This time you must first let the woman die. Thanks to that you can know her secrets. Once the day starts, walk towards the clock and use the option to turn the clock  immediately on 8 PM. Then use the marked door and enter the nearby room .
Near the bell you will find a bone key. Take it and go back to the corridor with the clock. Then use the second exit from the corridor.
You will enter a room seen on the picture. Don’t touch anything, only use the next door.
You will enter another corridor. Enter the first room on the right.
Use the key you found to open the bone closet marked on the screen.
Once it is open, click it a few times with LMB. Your character will learn some things about arcane powers. It will be important during his mission.
Use F1 button to rewind the time.
Once you restart the time, it’s time to learn the second secret of the woman – the secret chamber. Go towards the room with the bell and then to the corridor. You don’t need to hurry, but you must complete all actions before 2 PM. Use the marked door on the corridor.
Hide in the closet in the room with paintings. Wait until Willow Blue comes in.
The woman will move towards one of the paintings after entering the room. She will start entering the code and you will have some time to press space and activate the power of the Trinity mask. This will enable you to learn the code to the secret chamber.
You must use black magic to enter the chamber. All clues can be found further in the guide. Use F1 to rewind time.
The actions described below will help you save the woman. You must complete a few tasks in a very short time. You must enter the secret chamber before Willow Blue in order to save her.
Enter the room on the left after starting the day. Pick up the charm lying on the ground.
Go back to the corridor with the clock and use the charm on one of the fish marked on the picture. Then use the door on the right and pass through the room with the bell to the corridor.
Now go to the room in which you found the clock key at the start of the mission.
Use the talisman on the second fish and return to the corridor.
From there you must go to the room with paintings and then to the secret chamber. The entrance is blocked by a giant skull. It will fall back when you show the sated hungry charm. Remember that you must interact with two fish.
Use the stairs  in the secret chamber to reach higher level. Position yourself next to the valve  and wait for Willow Blue to come in.
The woman will light a candle  and the ritual will start. Wait until she starts gathering power . Then use the valve  to snuff the candle off. This should trigger a cutscene that ends the task.
Finally the woman will take the mask off and walk away. The woman from the tutorial will appear instead. Willow’s mask will enable you to see ghosts near the skulls with candles and more things. Its powers will prove to be very useful.
Once it’s over, the day will restart and you will have to deal with another death.
You will begin this mission in the same location that you chose while dealing with Willow Blue. Use the door on the right, go through the belfry and into the corridor, and then continue on, until you find yourself in the room shown in the picture above. Use the door that has been marked in the picture.
You will enter a small corridor. Go through the marked doorway.
You have reached the area of the music rooms. There are ghosts  in your path, to which you have to talk to. After all of the dialog options have been exhausted, the ghosts will separate, and you will be able to pass. Head forwards, into the unknown area .
You are now in the room with a clock , but you cannot set a starting spot, because you are not in possession of any of the keys. Use the door indicated in the picture above .
In the next room, advance in the indicated direction.
You will find a key in the room you are about to enter. Now you must simply return to the clock via the same path. Fix the clock, and then synchronise it. After that is done, use the F1 key, and restart the day.
Go left from the starting point, into the room where a gramophone is playing. Interact with it, which will result in you taking the record with you. Return to the room with the clock, and use the door on the opposite side, in order to enter the dressing-room of the future victim.
Now head to the closet by using the doorway marked in the picture.
Interact with the gramophone, in order to set the record on it, the one you have previously collected. Then go back to the starting room and watch the killer through a keyhole. After playing one of the melodies, the killer will turn his attention to the noise in the nearby room. Wait until he enters the dressing-room, and then head to the hall behind the scene.
There is a key  lying on the piano, which you should definitely pick up. Afterwards, follow the killer into the dressing-room  as quickly as you can.
You have to perform all actions before he leaves the closet. Otherwise, you will not be able to save the woman. If the killer is still in the closet, than it is enough, that you approach the door and interact with it, using the key you picked up earlier.
If you have executed all actions correctly, than a short cutscene will appear, where Tequila Belle will sing a song and live to see another day. The killer will remain locked in the closet while the scene is happening.
Finally, you will take over Tequila’s Mask, which will allow you to shatter thin, glass surfaces. The lady from the tutorial will also make an appearance, and will drop you onto a lower floor, into the mansion’s chambers, which were previously unavailable.
Your goal is to save consecutive guests, and the tasks connected with achieving this goal will be discussed in further chapters.
After beginning this stage, the game assigns you a new starting point, meaning that you do not have to look for another winding key. Your task is to acquire the lighter. It will allow you to light the candle, located in the starting room.
Firstly, leave the room through the door marked in the picture.
You will now find yourself in a small corridor. You have to reach the room on the other side of the indicated doorway, but at the start of the stage, the future victims are in that very room. Wait for the hero’s mask to stop burning, and then enter the room.
Once here, wait until 3 pm, and then go to the next room.
You will find a safe behind the exposed picture. Click on it, and you will acquire the lighter. Now return to the starting room via any path you wish.
If you already have the lighter and you have returned to the starting room, than there is nothing else to do but to light the candle . If it is burning, and you still cannot see any ghosts, then walk up to the clock  and use it to switch time to 4 pm. A ghost should then appear . Talk to him, until all of the dialog options have been exhausted. This way, you will learn about the existence of a secret switch, which is essential to completing the task.
Now return to the chamber in which you have found the lighter. Use the door indicated in the picture above.
Approach the wardrobe and interact with it. This way, you will activate the secret switch, which the ghost has mentioned. After that, return to the starting room following a safe path.
When you return to the starting chamber, use the door marked in the picture and go through the corridor and into the neighbouring room.
Afterwards, go to the next one, where you must use another doorway in order to reach the room that is your target.
When you get there, make sure that it is not later than 8.30 pm. As during the later hours there are no chances to save the victims, and the last two stages will have to be repeated. Otherwise, interact with the switch, that has been marked in the picture above. Around 8.45 pm a cutscene will begin, showing that the guests have been rescued.
If all of the previously described activities have been executed correctly and timely, than the cutscene presented in the picture above will appear.
The guests will take off their masks and after a while, when they leave the room, the lady from the tutorial will appear. When the hero picks up Greyson Grayson’s mask he will gain the ability to open most locks in the residence, which thus far have blocked access to certain rooms.
Before you begin completing actions, which will save the lives of the next couple of guests, you must first reach the part of the residence, in which you have been before. Go from the starting point and into the main hall as fast as you can. You must reach there before the guests, that you have saved in the last mission.
Exactly in the metal cage, there is a hatch leading to the basement. Thanks to Grayson’s mask you will be able to open it. It is enough that you approach it and hold the X button.
Now go into the basement and move through the linear chain of the next few chambers, until you reach the entrance to the upper level.
This way, you will find yourself in a secret chamber behind the bar of the residence. Use the available path, in order to exit the hiding place. Go directly to the room with the clock, which was the first starting point you have ever synchronized. Synchronise it again and restart the day.
From the room with the clock, head out directly into the main hall. There, you will find two guests, who are the people you need to save in this task. You can pass them by and head left on the ground floor. If you wait until they leave the hall, than you might not have enough time to discover the shortcut.
Go through the next few rooms until you find the one with a padlock on a green door. Use Grayson’s mask, in order to remove the padlock. Then go through the door.
Go forwards until you reach the room shown in the picture above. Your task is to smash the chandelier . However, in order to achieve that, you must place you hero in the point  indicated in the picture above. Use the door  and head to the upper level.
Follow the only available path, until you reach the chamber shown above. Apart from the door that got you here, you have two possible routes. The first door  leads to the balcony from where you can shatter the chandelier. Do not go in there, and instead, use the second door . In the second chamber behind said door you will find one of the workers, but more importantly, a winding key. You should be able to go in there and take it without any issues around 9 pm.
Then go to the balcony as soon as possible and drop a fragment of the chandelier. Go back down.
First use the lighter, in order to light the candle  that fell from the chandelier. When you do that a ghost will appear next to you . Talk to him, until all of the dialog options have been exhausted, and you will learn that interacting with the bookshelf  reveals the entrance to a secret chamber .
After entering the back room move as fast as you can to the room shown in the picture above. Approach the clock  and fix it. Then synchronise it with the pocket clock. You can also pass through the door marked above , in order to unlock a shortcut, but you can also do that later.
Leave the starting area by going through the door which leads to the further parts of the mansion.
Then, use the next door.
Now move to the next room.
As you can see there is a clock here , but you cannot use it, since you must first acquire the key which is needed to wind it. Use the marked doorway .
Go through the room with the elevator, and head through the door shown in the picture above into the second corridor.
There is a winding key on the floor. Pick it up and return to the device by following the same path. Repair the clock, synchronize it and restart the day.
When the new day begins head directly to the room with the elevator and use the door next to it, in order to enter the corridor where you found the winding key.
Once in the corridor, enter the room through the indicated door.
In the room you will find another doorway. At this stage of the game you must peak through the keyhole.
If you came here just after the start of the day, than you will see, that a casino employee is detaching an arm from one of the statues.
When you see this, you must stop peaking. Get out of the room and into the corridor and then go through the next door.
After entering the room ignore all the other objects and approach the curtain. Interact with it in the indicated location. This way you will raise the curtain, and you will be able to peak on the casino employee from the room on the other side of the wall.
Return to the room where you were peaking on the employee through a keyhole. You will have to pass him by on the way there. If you do that in the doorway, than the screen will be dimmed for the shortest time. In the room, use the peep-hole shown in the picture above.
The employee will try to hide the detached statue arm. Watch him all the time, in order to learn the exact location. This knowledge will also be available on the next day, so you do not have to repeat this activity.
Use the time you have left until the end of the day to reach the casino hall shown in the picture above. You will begin the next operations from this point, so synchronize the clock with the pocket clock. Reset the day by using the F1 key.
From the starting room, head directly to the bar.
Take the record off of the gramophone  and take it with you. Then light the candle  in the room by using the lighter. When you meet these two conditions, hide in the closet  and wait for Aurum Runes to enter the room.
When they see him, the ghosts will start talking to each other, eventually giving up the password, which is necessary to get into the room with the statue.
When Aurum enters the room exit the closet and talk to the ghost. He will take a step back and will allow you to enter the room. However, Aurum is still in it, so you have to wait until he interacts with the statue and moves to the next room.
Enter it after him, and set the statue to the heart symbol. To make things easier, the lights on the statue will light up in green. Remember, that you have to do this after Aurum rearranges the arm. Otherwise Aurum will rearrange it after you set it correctly.
Now, you have to get to the room where the second statue’s arm is hidden as soon as possible.
Enter the room, while avoiding the staff and guests. Approach the compartment and take the arm out of it.
Go into the room with the statue and repair it by interacting with it. Then set it to the green hearts symbol.
Now you have to go to the statue that is placed in the library. Use the shortcut behind the painting.
Before you interact with the last statue, you have to wait for Aurum Runes to do it. Enter the room shown in the picture above and hide in the wardrobe.
Around 7:20 Aurum will enter the room. Wait for him to rearrange the position of the arm, and when he leaves the chamber set it to the correct position. This should start the cutscene that concludes this stage. Provided, of course, that you have completed all tasks correctly.
It is worth noting, that in this stage you perform operations on three statues, and correct settings on four statues are needed for the elevator to work appropriately.
The first one is located in the room which you found yourself in after saving Reginald Sixpence. Ultimately, no one will touch this statue throughout the entire mission, so do not rearrange the setting on it in any case.
Eventually, the guests will not use the elevator, but will instead take off their masks. You will gain Thanos’s mask, which will allow you to read memories that are hidden in individual rooms of the mansion.
As a result of the influence of the lady from the tutorial you will use the elevator and will find yourself in the cellars, where you will attempt to save the final potential victim. You will find the description of all tasks needed to achieve this in the relevant chapter.
Here you can look up the functions of different keys.
Open door/exit room
Peep through keyhole
Start pocket watch
Abort current action (such as spying or hiding)
Listen to sounds from other rooms
