Stuck for months
Bought this game months ago, eventually got stuck, quit playing but never uninstalled.

Now I'm trying to pick up where I left off, and I STILL have no god damn clue where to go or what to do.

So, I've decided to spend a few minutes every few days wandering around aimlessly in hopes of accidentally making progress.

Anyone else in the same boat?

If you've been out of it for a few months, it's probably best to start from a fresh save so you can be taught the mechanics again that you might have forgotten.

oh i remember the mechanics just fine, I just have no idea where to go. I just click on a random room from the map area and wander, hoping for the best

Well it is an exploration game... you're kind of meant to be lost, exploring the map; that's the whole point.
Abe Jan 27 @ 11:53pm 
ive got alot of rooms opened up to me now, a hint of at least what rooms i should be examining would be appreciated

nevertheless i refuse to use a walkthrough lol
Californ1a Jan 27 @ 11:59pm 
Saying where to go or which rooms you need to be looking at would be no different than using a walkthrough. You're meant to figure out where to go.

Edit: Sorry if I'm not helping much, but you can't really get help for this game without spoilers.

oh i wasnt asking YOU for a hint, i was more implying that the game should better communicate its objective to the player :P

and yes dont worry i dont want any spoilers :D

That's the thing though, there isn't really an objective, except, explore. It can't communicate that any better than giving you the map to walk around in. So long as you keep looking around for anything you may not have noticed before in the darkest corners of all those rooms you've been to, then you'll eventually make progress.

Edit: You're 10 hours in, mind taking a screenshot of your map? It seems from what you've said here that you're still near the very beginning of the game, even with 10 hours playtime.

the game does communicate your objectives well, it simply does it subtlely, for instance, often when you end up running in circles, the game puts you in front a puzzle you previously couldnt solve, or the wall message lets you know theres an alternate way to solve the puzzle

also check the map, you can see incomplete routes, thatll give you an idea of where is a puzzle to solve


think outside the box, thats the rule of the game

Also, sometimes the signs can give you subtle hints on where to go, and how to solve some puzzles.

Don't ignore signs and arrows, even if you are sure they lead to a dead end. They don't.

Well guys after many months of hiatus, followed by many hours wandering aimlessly upon my return, i finally got past whatever mental hurdle was blocking my progress.

Once I got past it, I made fairly consistent headway all the way to the end., collecting the yellow gun red gun and eventually that creepy black gun o.O

Btw, the last stretch of puzzles right before harvesting the black cube, are you supposed to get past those doors with only the 7 blocks given to you? Seems like that was the intent, if so I kinda cheated :P I had a massive stockpile of red blocks i was able to recover when I came up a block short.

in retrospect, what a fascinating game! two thumbs up

If you use the red gun's fill and vacuum abilities consecutively (starting with only 2 cubes in the gun), it grows more for you.
