I don't get it. I'm stuck on the "5 Squares" level and I only have one square. What am I supposed to do?

Fun! I want to keep going! I'm not sure my mind can handle what comes next... :)

Jane F said...

I don't get it either... Where am I supposed to get 5 squares from?

HELP! I'm stuck on the "Signs" part. I can pick them up but I don't know what to do with them.

@ Jane F, when you get the map use 1,2,3 ect. on your keyboard. 2 will get you to the quarry. You will need to go there twice to get the squares. Make sure that you get 5 white ones and and 1 red one.

Jane F said...

Got it! CLUE - Get map and press "1"

Squares: keep talking to the rectangle until it gives you a map. This will allow you to travel to a new location to find squares.

Signs: I was able to move things along by dropping a red square and placing the "This is not a square" sign on top of it. I was also right in front of the talking rectangle when I did it. I don't know which of these factors were absolutely necessary.

Thanks Anonymous 19:13 I'd just figured that one out. Stuck on the signs now? Got lots but can't figure out what to do with them...

Seen myself on the mirror but it's still asking me if I have...

Well, now that I finished the game I can tell all of you that it was very good but also very odd.

Jane F said...

Ok, finally figured out what to do... bit of a weird ending though!

PyroLuna said...

Love the idea of change in the game, it is so true

stuck on trees can anyone help?

I'm not sure what to do after the mirror. The city man keeps asking me if I've seen myself, and I have. I've even placed a bunch of things in front of the mirror and I've looked in all of the other locations. What's the deal with the mirror?

Once you get to the trees, go back the place number 1 on your map. THere will be "apples" there

How do I destroy the red squares?

What do you do after the mirror? People who ask and then figure out, don't just come back to tell us you've figured it out... tell us how! >.>

Ah, okay. I picked up everything and placed it in front of the mirror. I think you probably only need one of everything.

In the description it says "Get the world back to the way it was... or not." So maybe it ends at the mirror part.

Doesn't load for me on Linux. Just goes from the intro gray bars to an all-black screen. Is that how it starts?

Anonymous said...

PaleRose said...

Coffeeteamix said...

Bart when are you going to make a new game?

Belal Masood said...

I've destroyed the volume cube as well, is that the only end or there is something else?!

Jam6i said...

Excellent game, especially considering the time frame in which it was developed. Thank you!

Bart said...

You don't have to press the X button lots of times to start. I think the problem was the game didn't have focus, so: click the game, then press X should start the game, cheers!

WOW AMAZING GAME!
Although I must say I preferred it all in white. Insane ending, I wonder what on earth made them think of that! But I'm glad the friend was a girl, I liked it a lot.
