The following helpful resources are helpful in various aspects. As such, they are linked here instead of linked for several times in different sections:

"I am lost, where should I go next?" (Walkthroughs)
Besides the aforementioned All-Purpose Resources, we also have:

There also exist fan-made maps:

"The game feels too difficult!" (General & Combat Tips)
The dev has been listening! There have been many Accessibility Options implemented since launch, mostly to give players an easier time in combat if needed. Feel free to turn these on/off anytime you want!

Here are the guides that you may find helpful:

The (Steam-exclusive) Liag mode provides totally balanced buffs to a technique and a few tools. Despite being an April Fools' joke build, it is still freely accessible today. Try it if you wanna steam-roll the game!

There is also a cheat mod[] (by Max Vollmer) that can provide players perks such as unlimited items and health. Try this if you are really struggling.
Note: Be aware that this will disable all achievements.

"Why is everything so expensive?" (Financial Advice)
No it's not.
The "money shortage" situation usually stems from a few problems:
  • Wanting to buy everything during the first visit to towns
    & Buying too much food that can be instead picked up for free
  • Not exploring enough to discover treasure chests and side quests
  • Ignoring valuable recycling opportunities
  • Unaware of a number of obscure bonus tricks

I have explained it in more details in this Money Guide, see also:

"How do I solve this puzzle?" (Puzzle Solutions)
Besides the aforementioned All-Purpose Resources, we also have:

"Where do I find this Collectible?" (Collectible & Achievement Guides)
Besides the aforementioned All-Purpose Resources, we also have:
  • Collectibles, Conveniences, and Loot[] (Vouivre Critique)
    Descriptions for all collectibles, achievements, treasure chests, and shops
  • All Badges Guide (Pimez)
    Descriptions for all badges, with external links and recommended grinding spots included

The "Puzzle Solutions" page of the PHOA Compendium has what you need, just search for "Lights Out Puzzle" there.
