I feel stupid
I used to think i was pretty good at puzzle games... This game has changed my mind. I solved alot of puzzles... Then just hit a complete dent. I can't figure out ANYTHING X.X Love the game though. Just wish i wasn't so stupid :P

It's not a puzzle game. It's a psychological exploration game. Even if you can't solve the puzzles, you can always explore more.

Well i can't figure out some of the... Problem stuff? Ill just call them puzzles.

feeling stupid is a good sign, its the moment just before you realize what the solution is, at least in my experience playing it :)

I really don't wanna have to use a walkthrough, but i feel i have to. Not on all of it but one just to get me going X.X

Before you do such ridiculous move,
know that maybe you haven't yet learned HOW to solve that certain puzzle.
Go to the menu and go to icons that are big squares and go for them, it means you haven't yet passed that level and that there is something beyond it.

The game hurts my brain. The level design is pretty fascinating though, I'd like to see how the creator made the maps...

Yeah, I pretty much gave up on this game.

If you don't mind me asking, about how far are you? I'd assume you have the green gun by the way you're describing your situation. There is a bit of a "snag" once you obtain the green gun; there is a mechanic that you gain with the green gun that isn't very properly taught. There are a few puzzles that attempt to teach this mechanic though.

Nope. Only have the blue gun. Iv'e just tried looking everywhere for stuff to do X.X I DID see the green gun once... But then it dissapered into some room or something.

The good thing is to gave up for a while and wait. I had very big problems, than I launched the game few months (you can earlier) and I made it to the end by one session.

Don't watch any walkthroughs. It's better to not finish the game now but later than finish it now withput any fun. This is made consciously - easy puzzles with hard ones.

And you have to remember that you have to totally "change" your mind. You have to start thinking differently. It's another world, it's another physics rules set.

I hope that helped you :-)

Yeah thanks. It's funny though because i went through it yesterday and ended up finding the green gun XD And now im back in the same point of "idk how to solve this stuff". Ill just go back periodically. Thanks.

You see, It's just that you need to refresh your brain. If I remember correctly, I once played Antichamber and then dreamt the solution. It was like the second time it has ever happened to me.
Same here. I played this whole day and found two guns only :(

I found several rooms where you have to use many cubes together, but there is no source of cubes around. Does it mean i must find a way how to bring them from other rooms?

By the way, i totaly accidently solved Finding the seams room, but i have no idea how. I tryed to walk thru that room again, but i failed. It's insane.
