"Thank you for purchasing Pier of the Unknown!
A new story quest can now be accessed by speaking to Clémence after you have had your first proper meeting with the Triangle Man." - Intro note on title screen after installing Pier of the Unknown
- "A patron of this fine establishment told me of a peculiar sighting they saw earlier. An abandoned rowing boat, sailing itself to shore not too long ago. Sounds strange, no? I thought that you would like to hear about it, given that you and your friends adore discussing strange occurences right here in my café!" - Clémence
- "I am Gwen, humble host and ringmistress of Brightside Pier!" - Gwen
- "The pier's three main attractions are each powered by rusty old machines that keep them running day and night. Something has happened to these infernal engines, and now their instability threatens the safety of the entire pier. This happened on my watch - and because of the nasty blighters that have since moved in, I am unable to fix them myself. I sent out the boat to your island in hopes that someone would come and help me resolve my slight predicament." - Gwen
- "What do you think? Do you think you'd be able to give these infernal engines a good ol' wallop to make them work again?" - Gwen
