The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is here, the free prequel to Life Is Strange 2 - which releases this September. It's a fantastic little adventure game in its own right, and making it free means it's a must-play.
There are several objectives in the game for main character Chris to complete, which take the form of classic adventure game puzzles, and by far the hardest is getting the PIN code to his Dad's phone. Here's how to unlock the Dad's phone in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit!
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit - How To Unlock Dad's Phone
One of the objectives in the game is to beat Chris' high score on Mustard Party 2, which is on his Dad's phone. The phone is on the desk in the main room, next to the PC. When you open it, Chris comments that he needs the password/PIN code.
This is where things get a bit weird. For starters, the code is 8 numbers, not the standard 4 digit PIN code. So it's not '2005', the year on all your Dad's trophies. It's also not anything related to his family.
The clue is actually on the laptop, and the game you need the phone for. When you open the laptop, you see the page for Hawt Dawg Man, with a reference to the game Mustard Party 2 that Chris wants to play.
The PIN code is 42983294 - "Hawt Dawg" written in numbers!
You can now activate the phone and play the Flappy Bird-like Mustard Party - score higher than 256 by collecting Mustard packets to win and accomplish the objective.
We'll be honest, this is an incredibly terrible puzzle, in many ways. There is no indication that Chris' Dad likes Hawt Dawg Man, PIN codes are 4 numbers rather than 8, the phone goes up to 11 digits so "Hawt Dawg Man" makes more sense... and worst of all, there are no letters on the phone's password screen so you have to work out which letters correspond to which number.
The game is still great though, it's just a shame this incredibly convoluted puzzle drags the enjoyment down.
