Little stuck on the Overlord's Fortress
Hey all!

Just getting to the end of my first continent run and I've run into a snag inside the Overlord's Fortress.

I have these locked doors stating I need to unlock them somehow. The first one I just had to look around the rooms until I found a switch. Pressed it and went back. So far so good.

Now there are two more 'locked' doors and I have gone through every room available to me with a fine tooth comb. Is it possible for the rooms to randomly generated in such a way that you can't complete it? Is there a way to re-roll the fortress? Or am I being really dumb and there's something obvious staring me in the face?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There is always a switch for the locked doors, usually one level above.

keep looking. there should be another switch on a level higher from where you found the last switch, and will likely be another switch on a level higher for a locked door you will likely find past the door you are trying to unlock now.

Right, thanks ofr the tips guys. I have gone back over the rooms looking for a way to get higher than the first switch and there just isn't one. The only think I can find is this inaccessible vent.

The first switch was in the little dark blue room in the middle/top of the map.

The first locked door is in the room my character is in now.

Think I might have to reroll the world and start again :(

What makes the vent inaccessible? Lay a platform if you can't hit "E" as you fall towards it.

You need to learn to interpret region maps (on the bottom-right). You're going to go into the small room above your current position, then up one more for a boss fight, and then after that room you'll find the next switch.

Overlord palaces tend to have 5 or 6 locked doors before you reach the Overlord. And they're always organized such that small room left is the path to the unlock, the bigger stairways to the right are the locked area.

You're welcome. :)

Thanks pgann! That's exactly what I thought too.

The problem is that I think I need ot get into the vent on the left hand side of the map in my screenshot. As you can see the vent is inaccessible due to the wall running floor to ceiling. I'll try and see if there's a hidden way in or something.

Unfortunately, I think that's a bug.... if you zip up your world save, and send it to me, I'm pretty sure I remember how to fix it.

You sir, aare a champion! I have sent the world across to the generic arcen games email account on your web site. Hope you find it ok! I'm looking forward to getting back into the game again.

Many thanks!

Reminds me of the boss tower that didn't have an exit warp!

Yep, that's just fine. You should have the fixed world. I had to re-make the room, so, it's a different room, but it should work now.

Worked great. Thank you very much for the quick support!
