Oh wow, the aquarium brochure is a thing of wonder! Was chuckling as I went along, and by the time I reached the Triple-Lobed Disappointment, I was in full fledged hysterics!

Thanks, gad you enjoyed it! :)

Sorry for asking for so many hints, but I'm not sure how to get past the guy at the front gate after the tide goes out. I haven't done anything with the shopkeeper yet, if that helps.  I've been under the dock but I'm not sure how to use this information.

Hey! No worries, this is my fault, just realized the text forgot to mention something important XP... In the light house tower, you can go northwest to get out onto a ledge, where you'll find a nest. If you search the nest, you'll find what you need. Thanks for playing!

Good stuff!

Minor bug: I dropped the sunglasses in the lighthouse (after you know who appeared) and it gave me the same message that I received when I removed them the first time, on the beach.

oops! Thanks for the tip, I'll fix that up asap! Thanks for playing :)

How do you get the jaw?

Developer

Go into the AV room and turn up the movie volume. If you play the film at the increased volume, it will cause the jaw to fall off the wall.

Came for the atmosphere, stayed for the terrifying fish.

The terrifying fish were well beyond the call of duty.
