Cant pick up the 2nd floor keycard up, no matter what i do, it just sits there on the table, nothing works.

The keycard on the 2nd floor start room? [2nd Floor Manager's Office Keycard]? or the keycard located where you start objective 2? [2nd Floor East Wing Keycard]

[2nd Floor Manager's Office Keycard]
You need to complete objective 1 first (find the main entrance and leave). You will then be prompted to "Find the 2nd Floor Manager's Office". In the same room as the main entrance/exit there is a keycard placed on the desk [2nd Floor East Wing Keycard]. This is used to unlock the section with the manager's office.

When you reach the managers office you will be prompted to find the keycard ("Search sarah's desk"). You will then be able to pickup the keycard you are referring to.

[2nd Floor East Wing Keycard]
You should be able to pick this up after completing objective 1 (Find the main entrance and leave).

I hope this helped. If not could you please tell me the name of the keycard you can't pickup? and if you followed the above steps.


Well that explains it then :) I will try again

Yeah sorry for the confusion. But it's valuable feedback to know it's possible to miss what to do.

That particular keycard isn't required until Objective 3 gets triggered. But I didn't want to force the player to search the entire map for it. The idea was that you should initially see the keycard [2nd Floor Manager's Office Keycard] at the start of the game when your initial objective is "find the main entrance and leave". When you eventually trigger Objective 3 it says you need to find the 2nd Floor Manager's Keycard - there is an additional hint provided in the text that comes up.

"It's locked. Where did Adam leave the keycard? Did he give it to Sarah? I should search her desk. She sits next to me."

I was hoping that would be the "ahhhhhh" moment and the player knows exactly where to go. Unfortunately, someone else had this problem too. Although they eventually found the keycard - when initially told to search for it they didn't know where to look.
