Walkthrough by G&D Productions.
In case you need one or more of the saves/screens/videos, you’ll need to download the saves folder. These savegames are made following this walkthrough, so if you took another route through you could miss some items in the saves.
The compass is pointing to the way Lara looks, so for the directions in the walkthrough the camera must be behind her.
