Well that was a nice surprise. Brilliant stuff from Masa as always.

2806th. Harder, but not impossible. Hint for those stuck...some puzzles cannot be solved until much later.

Hints for the 2 places I got a bit stuck.
Don't ignore the reflection.
Don't ignore the alarm.

This is a good one, more difficult than these usually are, but it rewards attention to detail and patience.

My own biggest block was. there is a thing you can do on the 1st floor once the elevator is out of the way.

For those stuck like me: when the elevator is on the second floor, don't forget to go down the ladder to see what's under the cables.

5056th - All by myself - I'm happy! :)

@Urban Garlic that was the only thing we needed a walkthrough on, and the only part of the puzzle that wasn't perfect. We did click on that region when it was possible to proceed, but got nowhere. The actual region of the screen that you can use to go forward is pretty tiny, so we missed it until seeing the walkthrough. Any kind of pixel-hunting is, we think, a weakness in an escape game. It makes you think something you did try didn't work when, in fact, you did the right thing, but just not in precisely the right place. Not as bad as when a point-and-click game suddenly demands parkour skills (cf. "Light Matter"). But it still feels a bit like a bait-and-switch.

But that was the only such moment in this game. Overall, it is superb.

Challenging, but a lot of fun.

Love this! With Masa's games I don't usually take hints, because I know the game is well-made and logical, and I can find the answers if I think long enough.

I'm stuck with just a coin. Don't understand the puzzle with 4 green men, or the one with the 1,2,3 right above the key on the chain.

Anon, a coin in any adventure is invariably used to turn a screw. To solve the green men you have to get the second floor door working (as I remember, you need the speaker). The back accordion door marked 1,2,3 will operate when you get the two orange squares. But first, locate the screw for that coin!

Can I have some help with the orange and black squares with the 1 2 and 3 combos puzzle? It is right above the key on the chain

Ok, those orange blocks are the very last puzzle, so don't waste you time on them at all.

Stage name said...

Anon, you need the key to open the compartment and the two orange tiles. If you have the tiles and the compartment key, then click through to the matching sliding door positions on the display panel. Note which number door(s) is shown facing outward, 1,2, or 3.

This was really nice. Everything made sense, no pixel hunting, satisfying without being easy.

I'm officially the 17052nd person to escape this room! Masa's Games have really outdone themselves with this game. Can't wait for the next one!

17742. Wow! Very clever use of items and access to areas.

Just needed some help on the first clue - to match displayed number with vault panels - but otherwise a brilliant puzzle.
