As Guybrush Threepwood is trying to get a sail to Monkey Island, he’d need a crew and a ship but everyone in Melee Island is refusing him to be his crew member. As he visits the Jail, he’ll see his old friend Otis locked up in a cell. He’ll agree on joining us on the sail if we free him from the cell.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to free Otis from the cell in Return to Monkey Island.
Freeing Otis from the Cell
You’ll find Otis in the Jail on High Street. Talk to Otis and he’ll tell you that you can get the key from the Locksmith’s shop. Locksmith’s Shop is in front of the jail. Visit the shop and ask her about making the key. She’ll tell you that she can make the key for the specific Serial Number. She’ll tell you that every lock has a Serial Number and if you give her the serial number, she’ll make you the key to that lock.
If you visit Otis again and click on his cell door, your character will say that the numbers are very small and he’ll need some sort of magnifier to see the numbers. You can get a magnifier from Wally’s Shop on Low Street. Go to Wally’s Shop and you’ll see a magnifier on his desk. Click on the Magnifier and your character will distract Wally and take the Magnifier.
Now, go back to Otis and use the Magnifier on the cell door and Threepwood will write down the serial number of the lock. Go to the locksmith’s shop and give her the serial number and she’ll make you the key for the cell door. Take the key and go back to Otis and use the key on the cell door to free Otis from the Jail.
