I’ve also added short clips throughout of some individual puzzles. If you’re having trouble with a specific puzzle and want me to add it, just ask.

Chapter 1, The Lighthouse | Chapter 2, The Clock Tower. | Chapter 3, The Forge. | Chapter 4, The Observatory. | Chapter 5, The Projector, Imprisoned Ending.

See all three alternate endings, Release, Escape, Lost.

See my review for The Room Three.

Walkthrough:

Chapter 1, The Lighthouse:

1. Follow the tutorial. Swipe around to find the journal and look rough it a bit. Then, look at the box that appears on the table. Take the key.

final-111

2. There’s no keyhole on the box, so you need to get your eyepiece from the suitcase. Swipe both the right and left locks outward to open the suitcase. Then, zoom in on the little metal strip inside the lid. It’s actually a hidden compartment! Slide it out of the way and then take the eyepiece.

final-112

final-113

final-114

3. You can’t really do anything else right now with the rest of the stuff inside your suitcase. But you can use the eyepiece to see some hidden markings.

final-115

4. Use the eyepiece on the box to see some puzzle pieces. Slide them around to make a square, which will then reveal a keyhole. Use the key in the keyhole and turn it. Then take the engraved pyramid.

final-116

final-117

You can also watch my video walkthrough for Chapter 1 here:

5. You will now be transported to a new room. Slide the lock on the door to the right to see into the next room. Some man walks by the table.

final-118

6. Turn around and face the puzzle box in middle of the room. First, read the scroll resting on top. Then, there are three cylinders here filled with objects. You can turn each one using the little dial at the bottom. If you put on your eyepiece, you can see a riddle above each one. The first says “THE POOR HAVE ME THE RICH NEED ME.”
The answer is NOTHING, so set the cylinder to the empty window.

final-3

final-119

7. The second one says “MY FACE IS SILENT WITHOUT MY HANDS.” The answer is a CLOCK, so find the pocket watch and set it to that.

final-120

8. The third one says “THE POWER OF FLIGHT THE WELL OF KNOWLEDGE.” This is a quill and ink well. Set it to that.

final-121

9. A slot in the box will open, revealing a letter from the Craftsman and an ornate box. Take the box and open it. Take the lens. It will automatically be added to your eyepiece.

final-4

final-122

final-123

10. Use the eyepiece to see inside the door’s keyhole, then pick the lock. You basically turn two pieces at a time and stop when you see the white glow in the middle. The door will unlock and you can go through to the next room.

What do you do with the blank wax cylinder?
How do you open up all the drawers on the desk?
What are the phonographs for and how can you turn them on?

Loving this game!

Pirate hooks

Those things all apply to the endings of the game. You won’t be able to finalize those until you are almost done with it

SB

Right! I got one ending now want to try for more. So…do you know what to do with those things?
Thanks!

Pirate hooks

SPOILER WARNING!

Have you opened the token drawer for the fortune teller and used it? And have you figured out the study’s clock puzzle? (Hint, watch your system clock and listen for the chimes). If you closed the book in the upper library, have you used it in the greenhouse? Try those and see where they lead…

SB

Spoilers!

Yup all those things I’ve done. Now I have a wax cylinder that I cannot figure out what to do with (something with the phonographs but what?) and the drawer in the study half unlocked (left side unlocked). Clock puzzle and book puzzle solved.

Pirate hooks

There are little subtle switches within the drawers (similar to in the laboratory from the room 2) that open more of the desk. You can’t use the wax cylinder until you get the crank handle for the greenhouse phonograph. I *think* it came from the desk…. Hope that helps…?

Oh…and did you find the thing stuck in the tree in the greenhouse?

Matt

I have no wax cylinder??? But need it for the phone recordings?? Where do I get it?

adriennethology

SPOILERS

Close book with posters in upper level of library. Left side should have cube. Take cube to greenhouse. Left side of room has desk, put cube on scale and watch it slide into box. Put lenses on and toggle the left and right direction buttons until it turns into sphere. Hit round button in center, get sphere. Put the sphere into the right side of book and open it again. Put lenses on, go in stage.

KRONOS

it starts with the big clock so change your phone time 00:00 the clock will have button you gonna solve the problem. The second one The Telephone you will find the number in liberary room near the gramphone 🙂 Then call the number from other room and answer it in the liberary room than take the wax ? You can solve it than ?

SB

Thanks! I’ll check out the desk drawers some more. Haven’t figured out the tree drawer, it looks like you can make a key hole but I have no key 🙁

ExoAnth

I’m stuck at the ending…I’ve found my way into the drawers. I’ve opened the clock. I’ve opened the book and went to the green house…but which shape do I pick to reform it into? And then what? Ahhhhh

ExoAnth

Figured out the shape xD
but…what is with the thing in between the drawers? Is there a way to separate it from the wood?
I

Marshall

What shape exactly?

Alex

Sphere

Alex

Okay. So, I’ve completed the second ending (the first alternate ending), and, now, I have no idea what to do next. I’ve looked in every room, but everything out of the ordinary I can find has been opened/unlocked/used. The only two things I can find that haven’t been touched are both upstairs in the atrium. One of them is the safe. The other is on the other side where the generator is. It’s on the centre of the railing. I can zoom in on it, but I can’t interact with it at all thereafter. Other than that, I can’t find… Read more »

Pirate hooks

Think of the gold thing on the railing like a rocker switch, and watch the hanging weight as you do so. It solves the safe puzzle

Simon

Use it to swing the ‘chandelier’ by stroking the gold thing in the direction of the safe as it gradually builds momentum it will smash into the safe…

Hoopaloops

I’ve opened the clock and opened two of the drawers in the desk, but how do I open the other two? I found the switch inside the top left drawer, but all that did was unlock half of the middle drawer. How do I open the bottom left drawer, which I assume has the switch to unlock the second half of the middle drawer?

Alex

The middle piece that turns will rotate if you zoom in on it.

AoiKitsune

I managed to get the release ending. I have no idea how to get the escape ending. I managed to find one token, the one artifact, and a crank wheel with a four sided star shaped hole. I don’t know where to put it. Also, the handle is in the study on the desk? I feel like I’ve looked everywhere but I can’t seem to find it.

Alex

If you don’t know what to do with the coin, look at the fortune teller. She has the answer. If I’m thinking of the right handle (there’s two in the game), you have to get the gate open in the very first room you started in with the altar. Otherwise, if it’s the other crank, go look in the Greenhouse. The handle is not in the desk, but what is in the desk helps you get the handle. In order to get the item, you have to get the middle drawer open. The desk has a lot of switches inside… Read more »

Doodoo

How many of the desk drawers can be opened? I’ve opened only the top two drawers. How does the banister railing function? What about the gold crest on the opposite side of the chandelier?

Melissa

All of the desk drawers and 1 of the desk cabinents can be opened. Once you get the key for the first drawer you’ll be able to open the others…just look very closely at the desk. The gold crest works like a rocker switch to move the pendulum in the center of the room. You can use it to open the safe.

Alex

Alright. I got three of the four endings. There’s only one left. But, the problem is I can’t find anything else I can play with/manipulate. Although, I did notice a door in the greenhouse partially blocked by a tree. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the final ending, but if it does, I don’t know what to do with it. If it doesn’t do anything, than I have absolutely no clue what to do anymore or even where to begin looking.

Keith

Same here.

AoiKitsune

Me too, completely stuck. I’ve tried each artifact, both at the same time, but it only gives me two release and one escape ending. After you’ve gotten three endings have you tried again?

Alex

Unfortunately, I tried it to no avail. The game only let’s use one tower piece in combination with the beam of light from the Craftsman’s key. You only get one of the three endings. The fourth remains still a mystery.

Sneakermoose

The fourth ending requires the use of all three beams (Craftsman/Imprison, Escape, Release). You have to take the screwdriver to front of either Escape or Release towers (I used Release) to remove the piece that blocks the beam when the other tower piece is active. This will give you the Lost ending.

AoiKitsune

Oh yea, has anyone used the screwdriver? I haven’t found one use for it yet, maybe that’s the key to the last ending?

CA

I’m in the same place as you guys. All I have to use is the screwdriver it seems. Have you guys noticed that the box in the tree in the greenhouse is still open? I’ve been back in but I’m not able to change anything. Makes me feel like there is something else to happen in there.

AoiKitsune

I don’t know, I think all the drawers/boxes stay open after you’ve opened them.

CA

I’ve been looking all over for screws but not finding any. I did see some on the sides of the window in the atrium holding brackets onto the wall but I can’t interact with them.

CA

I figured it out and completed it 100%. You will need the screwdriver.

AoiKitsune

Where do I use it? In the atrium?

CA

On the projector.

Alex

What projector? The one in the last room?

CA

Yes. At the end.

AoiKitsune

I can’t seem to find anything that I can interact with. You mean the last room as in the one where you redirect beams of light?

Alex

I still can’t figure it out. I don’t see any screw anywhere. The screwdriver won’t interact with anything.

AoiKitsune

Which projector?

Steven

I found on the wall behind the tree a place that created a hole looks like a key will fit in but I have no key

Zepic

So, I really need help!!! I just got past the forge and I have this screwdriver that I need to use on an oscilloscope in the study, but the screwdriver won’t fit anywhere in it! Please help I can’t progress in the game!!!

CA

Use the screwdriver on the oscilloscope in the library

Courtney

Go to the room that looks like an office. Not the room with the books in it.

Doodoo

What do I do to open the safe and the drawers embedded in the tree?

Alex

For the tree, look behind it in the other room. It took me a while to find. Look on the floor to the right of the light fixture. The clue is there. As for the safe, look on the other side of the atrium where the generator is on the railing.

Doodoo

Generator on the railing? I don’t see it

Alex

Oh. I’m sorry. I phrased it in a bad way. On the side of the atrium with the device you use to connect the fuses. Turn around and face the railing. There is an object attached to it right in the centre.

Doodoo

There is a gold crest on the railing. But I can’t interact with it. I press it, try to rotate, flip, it won’t move.

Alex

I had a hard time getting to to work, too. Angle it to above the crest. Then put your finger on one side of it and move it very carefully. The weight in the middle of the room should start swinging.

Doodoo

That was a tricky one. It’s very subtle. Thanks!!

Alex

Yeah, that one is super difficult.

scorps

I’ve solved the 1st and 3rd endings. The only thing I have left that I can’t figure out are:
The telephone
The wax
Getting the reshapable sphere back so I can reshape it
The tree trunk key hole
The railing slider at the top most floor
Apparently I am still missing something with the three crystals
Two tokens
If anyone can help me with any of this it would be much appreciated.

Alex

Give the tokens to the fortune teller in the library. “Cross my palm with silver.” She’ll give you items you can use on puzzles. In the coin slot, there should be a mechanism. Looks like a gear. You can manipulate that in close up view. That should get you started.

scorps

Sorry, I did all this already, I found two tokens (and handed them in for items) and the mechanism. It’s just what I listed that I need help with.

Alex

You listed all the items you have? For now, I can tell you the sphere does nothing else. The other shapes serve no purpose. Once you place the sphere, you’re done with that part. Oh, have you gotten into the cellar with the math problems? You’ll need to do that in order to use the wax cylinder.

AoiKitsune

You don’t need to get the sphere back. You need to solve the drawers to access the dungeon. In there, there are some math puzzles which will give power to the library when solved. That will allow the telephone and gramophone to work. You still need to find a lever for the gramophone in the greenhouse though.

scorps

I unlocked the dungeon and powered the gramaphone but after working once it won’t work anymore (the one in the library main floor, the room with the elevator). Is there any way to make it work again? The greenhouse gramaphone works, it just constantly makes noise and I don’t know what to do with it.

AoiKitsune

There are telephones next to both gramophones. Hint hint.

Alex

On the front of the library phone should be a phone number. Go to the greenhouse and dial it. Then go back to the library to answer the now ringing phone. Before you do, make sure you place the wax cylinder in the gramophone, because it’s going to record the sound coming through from the greenhouse.

Marshall

So now I have a etched cylinder, but is there a third gramophone to interact with it? Seems that I’ve solved all the other puzzles.

Alex

Go back to the gramophone you got it from. Place it in and push the button on the front. The gramophone will play the music, solving the puzzle.

Marshall

Jesus I forgot where I got it from and couldn’t find it anywhere…Which room is it in?

Alex

It’s inside the book up in the loft of the library. The one that had the posters on it.

adriennethology

I’ve heard conflicting reports about where to find the greenhouse gramophone crank, which is driving me nuts by eluding me. Can someone tell me where to find it? (Yes, I’ve unlocked the cellar/powered the library/put the wax cylinder into the library gramophone.)

Alex

The crank is given to you by the fortune teller. I’m not sure which coin, but it’s comes out of the slot in her machine.

adriennethology

I’ve used one coin to get the wheel crank for the cellar open, where is the second one found?

Marshall

So I rang up the telephone in the library and got a cross-shaped key, what next? Still no key for the drawer in the tree.

Alex

Use the key on the chest of drawers in the cellar. You’ll get another token. The key for the tree you won’t get until the very end.

AoiKitsune

The key for the tree comes later. The cross shaped is

SPOILER

for the drawers in the dungeon

AoiKitsune

Hey Alex, figured anything out for the last ending yet? I’m super stumped

AoiKitsune

CA just left us hanging 🙁

Alex

I haven’t found anything. I’ve honestly given up until I feel like trying again or until CA or someone else gives us a hint or just tells us how. I’ll be sure to do the same, either a hint or just the straight up solution when I figure it out. Until then, I’m as stymied as you are.

Alex

Hey, just got the solution from SB. Once you place the right artefact, look on the back where the beam projects out. There’s a slider with a screw.

CA

Sorry to leave you guys hanging! Sounds like everyone figured it out? Had to get to bed 🙂

Alex

I haven’t a damn clue to be honest. It’s the screwdriver. It’s gotta be. But I can’t find screws anywhere. Or anything for it to interact with. Even in the Craftsman’s room on the projector as suggested. All the other projectors that opened up the other dimensions are closed, so I can’t imagine them being of any use anymore. And this game seems to follow the dynamic that once a puzzle is solved, you don’t need to go back to it again. So, again, I can’t imagine those other projectors are any good anymore.

SB

Got all but the fourth ending (Lost?). Anyone got this one yet?

Alex

None of who have gotten that far have figured it out yet. CA suggested you use the screwdriver on the projector in the last room, but I can’t figure out how, and I imagine AoiKitsune has tried as well. You’re welcome to give it a shot yourself. If you manage to find out how, let us know.

Alex

None of us who have gotten that far have managed to figure it out. CA said s/he did it by using the screwdriver on the projector in the last room, but I haven’t figure out how, and I imagine AoiKitsune has tried as well. CA left before giving the solution or a hint to point us in the right direction. Give it a shot if you feel like it. If you figure out how to use the screwdriver, please tell us. I’m pretty certain it is the last key. Otherwise, why would the game let you keep it? It does… Read more »

scorps

All I’m missing now is the thing that completes the three crystals station. I have all tokens and all rooms unlocked before you ask.

Alex

Sorry to ask this, but did you solve the safe puzzle? The last crystal is inside the safe. Unless you got that one already. Oh, the clock. That’s probably the one you’re missing. The clock in the study follows your devices time (by the way, hats to the dev for coming up with that trick. Clever.) Turn off automatic time and date if you have it on, then set your device one minute before the hour. Open the game and go into the study. Watch the clock. When it chimes, a panel with a switch will open. You can probably… Read more »

scorps

No I mean I have all three crystals, but tapping that machine I get a message that it needs another piece. There’s also a mechanical switch of sorts beside it that won’t budge. (I got the round screen beside this machine powered on, so that’s not the issue).

Alex

Oh, okay. In the loft in the library with the two posters. Did you check that? If not, it folds in like a book. The cube is the missing piece for the machine.

scorps

You mean the cube that fits opposite the gold sphere you create in the basement? I did that.

Alex

Huh. Then I’m not sure why the machine isn’t working. The three crystals and the sphere are the only pieces to the machine. But, wait. If you shaped the sphere and turned on the screen, then the machine doesn’t do anything else. Those are it’s only two purposes. Not sure if you did this, but you use the screen like the one in the observatory, clicking the buttons to manoeuvre. The arrow acts like a compass, directing you to your goal, which is the second artefact. Again, not sure if you’ve done that already. Sorry if you have, but, like… Read more »

Kevin Bacon

I’m pretty sure that’s just a bug. Double tap the screen and use the buttons to get the screen to open.

SB

There’s a screw panel on the back on the right artifact, after you place it! Use the screwdriver on that to open a new hole

SB

For the final ending turn on all three projectors (null, both artifacts) and remove the back panel of the right artifact with the screwdriver. You’ll get the Lost ending…very cool

Alex

Weird request, but do you have a working solution for the right artefact’s crystal puzzle? I hate puzzles like this. Pretty much the only puzzle I don’t like in puzzle games, and I can never figure out the pattern unless it’s small, like the similar one inside the Craftsman’s key.

Kevin Bacon

Maneuver one pair of beams so they are aiming right at the crystal. Now maneuver the pair next to them so they are away from the crystal, but facing the same direction. The puzzle should be easier to solve when you get to that point.

scorps

Were the second and third endings supposed to use (basically) the same cutscene with the boat and getting chased by tentacles?

Alex

Yep. They were. Only one scene the monster did not escape (left artefact). The other one, the monster did escape (right artefact). That’s the only difference.

SB

I worked in twos (as you can hold 2 at a time steady). Its a bit of trial and error but if you get two pairs at the same rotation point they will all turn together. Then get one pair shining on the crystal, hold those steady, and just keep turning until the rest are lined up.

SB

Actually there’s a difference in the cut scenes in 2 and 3. In the Release scene, the tentacles extend and escape into the sky- in the Escape one they just destroy the house and then disappear.

paxjiang

I find the hole that you can insert your key into the tree,but when I rorate it,nothing happend

Kevin Bacon

Go into the back of the tree to see what’s wrong.

scorps

So I’ll try to explain this as best I can. First, I found all endings. Now when I tap the spinning three crystal wheel it says “Something seems to be missing from these sockets.” I guess that’s a bug?

scorps

Oh and my total time was slightly under 9 hours. How was everyone else’s?

Sneakermoose

4:49 (In my defense I have really bad insomnia so I played from about midnight to just shy of 5AM).

scorps

Also is there a way to select a chapter? I don’t see such a menu.

Alex

Yeah. That’s definitely a bug. The machine needs no other pieces. I think my time was eight, nine hours. Right around there. Now, I’m excited to do a speed run to make a faster time. Looks like I can solve the last puzzle again without having to do anything else beforehand. I’ll do that real quick. Then I can give a more accurate time. Just under nine hours. I think it’s funny how several of us have completed the game when the walkthrough for the main storyline isn’t even finished. I can’t wait to see what Fireproof has planned next.… Read more »

Kevin

where can I use the etched wax cylinder? and I can’t find the key for the box in the tree…

Honey

put the etched cylinder back to the gramophone from which u got the blank cylinder and play it

Kevin Bacon

Use the etched wax cylinder at the theater inside the book on the top floor of the library.

CA

I completed in 7 hours on the first try. I may try a speed run but that sounds exhausting right now.

Kevin

I now stuck with the escape ending. don’t know what to do after I get the etched wax cylinder

Kevin Bacon

Use the book in the library to get to the old theater to play the etched wax cylinder.

paxjiang

now I find the fourth card,and get another artifact
