Gah! my posts are mangled - grrr

We can go to the attic, turn on the lights below by touching the sensor (dunno if we have to wait or not). Then go back down and touch the lamps to see which are hot. Got a lamp and Edison pic now.

marks on wall after using lamp + safe dial = petals puzzle.

Get glass container downstairs. Turn valves so the water can drop from the opening and place the container there. "Wait" until it's full and use water to grab key inside the tube.

txh Nini - never thought of touching the bulbs...

Horses behind Socrates pic is the hint for 4 buttons on the water > steam puzzle. (Look at their legs).

Use note from Watt pic to open top drawer, get apple. Use apple on machine to get a 3-dig number for the floor compartment. Get Newton pic!
(I'm thinking maybe we need to place the pics according to the 1st letter of their names).

We can place the memo on the burnable trash and the apple peel on the garbage.

Behind Newton pic is the 4-letter code hint.
Draw a line on the clocks just like the hint tells you to. Then mirror. :)

Use green valve on pipe and direct the water to the opening above it. "Wait" so you can see the hint: E=mc^2.
Match the dials and levers above the cb so they "seem' like the equation.

legs 1-4 from left to right on a horse, but also which horse is further than the other



Hm.. the trash cans and and the floor pattern suggest that the pics are related to compass. Still working on it.

how to get 3 digit code from apple machine?

Got it. Example: Beside Edison pic we should place Newton ( N E ). Which makes sense because the blue trash is North and the red one is South. Do the same for the rest.

@Alpha just place the apple and click on the 2 buttons (gear and apple).

For the last puzzle: Combine book numbers with NAPOLEON and spell "OPEN". :)

doh, had to adjust valve first...

Stuck at the very beginning. Has one hint - long number from behind black book. Dont know there to use it. Please, help!

start with making a hole at eye on wall to see LRUD hint

letter code

combo dials with Newton pic (see Nini's comment above), also note at which corners the hint squares & dials are cut for order




E=mc² for levers/dials above CB


eye direction hint



b/w puzzle

after turning wind-up key, note if piano plays white or black key



saturday night fever memories LOL

excellent, fantastic, brill & some more synonyms game!!! LTNS but it was way worth the waiting - great puzzles that require loads of mental acrobatics LOL - thx Gatamari ☺

& thx Nini for some nudges I needed ☺

btw, you have to «wait» before you can see eye direction hint (click waiting)

you also have to «wait» after placing hand for bulb hint

(1-8 from left to right)



turning safe dial as per hint after placing bulb upstairs gives following petal hint
(note the thicker lines on dial, place button from upstairs at petals)


dial doesn't reset when zooming out, so to start evtly over adjust dial at star



Two things in case you're stuck,

VXMY - 4518

The hint for the dial doesn't work, I tried from top to bottom, from bottom to top, I tried considering the numbers as absolute or relative values, I tried with the star being number 0, with the star being number 1, I tried with AlphaOmega's hint : nothing works.

pdgph, I still havent finished the game yet, but after reading hints,what i used was that when you spin the safe dial, note the place you land on..and use THAT on the pink petal buttons. ie..i think the safe dial doesnt do a thing, except give the hint for the pink petal button..(i think?)

I can't figure out how to get the 3-digit number from putting the apple in the machine. Alpha said he had to "adjust a valve" first...what does that mean?

Oh, pop, the green valve from the VXMY drawer...make it point left from the water machine to the apple machine.

@ clio_rose,

Thank you... But the flower has 5 petals and the dial has 10 positions, hasn't it ?

pdgph: the dial has 7 positions, and on the pink flower some petals are pressed twice. If you think sort of like a clock, you press the petals this way: 2, 7, 10, 2, 4, 12, 10. Then, of course, click the bar under the flower. Hope that makes sense

Hooray for mental acrobatics! Whew, that was tough and delightful. Such creative puzzles. Thanks Gatamari....Pretty sure my brain is steam now. Thanks for all the smarties who nudged me along. Amazing game!

Whew - finally out! What a great game!!! Excellent puzzles!

@Alpha and @Nini - thanks for all the fantastic hints!

Thank you Zoe, I'll try this...

Well, finally, I don't understand. My hint says 7, 6, 2... (there is no number higher than 8).

Definitely scores 5 stars...

Oh my... Gatamari is one of the developers whose games I just refuse to use hints and walkthrus for - they are too good tomiss any of the fun, and I know his games are always beatable by using pure logic.
This one took me the best part of 3 days - but it was worth every minute.

Pure fun.
