| Introduction |

Ben Jordan the Paranormal Investigator is a series of games that revolve
around the Investigator Ben Jordan and his adventures into the
paranormal.After graduating from college and unsuccesfully finding a job, he
decides to
pursue his life-long dream of investigating the paranormal after finding a
handbook online. This case revolves around the mystery of the Skunk-Ape and
the bizarre murders taking place in the Florida Everglades.
This walkthrough, like most of my others, will be completely spoiler-free.
You will not find an iota of plot related information unless it is required
to understand how to proceed. This walkthrough is presented in bullet-format
with secion headers to indicate where the action is taking place. If an action
will give you a point, I will indicate it out to the side of the action.

This game is a classic point-and-click adventure game. Left clicking will
perform the action indicated by your icon, and right clicking will change
the action you can perform. If you move your icon to the top of the screen,
a bar will drop down. In this bar you can change your icon type, open your
inventory, save, load, and quit. In your inventory, there are four options.
The spyglass allows you to examine objects more closesly, the hand allows you
to manipulate it, the arrow adds it to your current icon so you can use it
on objects outside of the window.

With all that, here we go!
