Stuck: Laying the Foundation
Currently, I am completely and utterly stuck in this room. I've gotten down the white cube in the center to the underground area, which I assume is the 'foundation' the area's refers to, but that didn't help me at all. I might need to get through the 'too many lasors' room, but I feel like I'm missing the tools for that one, too. I'm hopelessly lost. I tried wandering through most of the game, and I have yet to find anything to help me. I even found a few of the 'numbers' with the purple squares in my wanderings.
Currently, it feels like I need another color 'gun.' I have a green one at the moment.

Any hints someone can give me?

Give me a screenshot of your map and tell me what gun you have. :)

When you have enough resources, you can start growing more.

You can grow a garden anywhere.

Got a green one.

Understanding what to do at this point was the hardest part/puzzle of the game for me :)

Oh, just look for other routes, remember one thing, you can advance to areas you lack the knowledge/tools to deal with, and that going backwards can mean going forward.

Just basically replyed through the entire game up to this point, still nothing. I have spent over four times as much on this one part than I did on the rest of the game - getting here took about 40 minutes. I've been here for about 2 and a half hours.
I have managed to find three dev rooms, but I can't figure out this one part of the game.

Remember that Big Boxes mean other routes are there somewhere, where the small boxes mean that no routes are left to find.

Have a think about browb3aten's post.

Alright, now I get it. ♥♥♥♥. That was communicated a bit poorly in the game, IMO.

Well I just wondered around until I found a method, also it is meant to come across poorly in the game, as the games goal is not to teach you its mechanics but to get you to teach yourself them. Also make sure to read ALL the signs, they make sure that you learn stuff that is needed that you may of just solved by accident.

Maybe. But the game never has you garden outside of the boxes on the wall up to that point, which to me, screamed "You can only do it in these." Toss in the title of the area, 'Foundation,' and it seemed to suggest you needed to get through the white box and down the hole. Very little of the game even hints that you need garden.

Hey, I'm confused too. Exactly at the same point where you were, with the Green gun. What do? I've already been in the dev room down the cube.
