    I’ve imspected the writing but it always says can’t read the scribbles or lines or something of that nature. Does that mean I haven’t completed it?

    Hi :)… I’ve completed all 3 of the missions that you have listed here. But my thing still says 2/3? Can you help? I’m being told there’s a different mission later in the game, but the comment got blurred on reddit, so idk what it was called or when it’s supposed to happen?

    Can you return to this area and get the red chest later if you missed it? I just came back and the door is locked.
