On the right side of the text are graphics of keys from a key board including, Esc, left arrow, up arrow, down arrow, right arrow, Ctrl and  symbol, Del and symbol, Alt, Esc. Text reads, "Step Three: Playing the Game. You play as Keyli's avatar (pictured left). The ESC key will allow you access the game help menu and to pause or skip a video. Arrow keys will allow you to move around the environment. Space bar allows you to select and item (example of some items pictured left). When you go to the door you will be prompted to make certain choices, once the correct options are selected you will be able to walk through that door into the next environment. If you would then like to go back to the previous environment just move the avatar to the left side of the screen and that will transport you back to where you came from. command/option/esc will allow you to exit the game - it is your game now so you can play it again whenever you want to."
