Chapter 2:

You can watch my video for Chapter 2 or continue on for my step-by-step guide.

1. Plug in the TV again.

2. There’s a windmill above the dresser/closet. To solve this puzzle, pay attention to the direction of the light and the number of squares lit up. Then move that blade in that direction. Just keep going and then take the paper piece.

3. Head right. Open the symbols box to get another paper piece.

4. Turn right. Pick up the burning cigar and notice the back of the flyer says NOT THE RED VIAL this time.

5. Turn right. Open the drawers to get a screwdriver and paper piece. Ignore the fish for now.

6. Add the paper pieces to the Rusty Lake postcard.

7. The battery on the projector oozes out if you touch it. Just remember that for later.

8. The light switch is broken. But you can unscrew the lid using the screwdriver. There a puzzle inside! Solve it and then turn on the light.

9. Go find the paper piece in the light like before.

10. Add the paper piece to the postcard. It’s the last one, so look at the back. There’s another TV channel! 945.

11. Change the channel on the TV to 945. Mr. Crow says:

“Go deeper into your mind.
Look at the paining.
And burn your soul.”

12. Do what he said. Look at the painting and burn the shadow with the cigar. Then take the key.

13. Use the key to unlock the closet. Take the knife. Open the Dale Vandermeer Psychological Evaluation and take the painting label from inside.

14. Take the eyeball from the jar.

15. Stack the books on top of each other from biggest to smallest and then read the Ultimate Guide to Mental Health. Take the photo from inside.

    The last set is in the numerical order of flags color. The first one being the green one.
    By the way great work. Your walkthroughs are really helpful. Keep it up.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Yeah I figured it out shortly after I wrote that. 🙂

      And thanks!

  2. Name

    In the rabbit hands game, the hands in the pocket and in the shirt are pointing what hand do you have to touch

  3. A nonny mouse

    Page 6 is broken

  4. Pearl

    Half the time when I get to the globe-brain the bubbles won’t move at all.

    1. Name

      I tried doing the globe puzzle but its not working. I have taken out the brain. Should I use it or…?

  5. Ana

    Harvey won’t show when I play the song… don’t know what to do :/

      1. Brittany

        I’ve tried every brain, restarting the music every time.. Harvey wont show for me either! 🙁

        1. Empty head

          Pull out the brain and Rewind the HarveyΓÇÖs song. Then youΓÇÖll see Harvey on the window.

      2. Dana

        Tried that. Did not help…

    1. Brittany

      I had the same problem! I played the tape backwards and he came!

    2. Blaine

      Playing it forward makes him leave, backward makes him come back

    3. I g

      It wasn’t working for me either. I rewinded the tape and then pressed play again and surprisingly it worked, so maybe try that ?

    4. Ham

      I had the same issue, I had to play and then stop the tape right after for it to work. Also try rewinding it.

    5. Jen

      IΓÇÖve played the song in all three times, then with ΓÇ£no brain.ΓÇ¥ Still no Harvey.

    6. Christine

      Try rewinding the tape

    7. yeen

      they didnt mention that youΓÇÖre supposed to play it backwards

    8. Sanket Mali

      Play the tape in rewind mode

    9. PPAP

      Play the song backwards

    10. Jmiska

      Play song in reverse!

    11. Mandy

      Play the song backwards… I had a hard time with this one too. I guess forwards makes him fly off and backwards makes him return.

  6. I just want the bird to show up

    why tf wont harvey wont show up. Switched brains and still nothing

    1. Yasumani

      Empty head. Pull out the brain and Rewind the Harvey’s song. Then you’ll see Harvey on the window.

  7. Mornsy

    I have the egg to the hand and nothing goes happened. If I click on the red drape, iΓÇÖm zoomed back to the hand asking for something again. Is this a big or I am missing something?

  8. Lauren Blue

    How do I get the cup to make coffee

    1. AppUnwrapper

      DoesnΓÇÖt he give it to you?

    2. Justine Prudhomme

      I had the same problem !


    I planted the coffee and poured water on them and NOTHING HAPPENED. I Have used almost all the water in the jars. still nothing. Please help. I have been pre-registered and waiting for this game forever and want to play it so much!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      That never happened to me. Sounds like a bug. 🙁
      You could contact the developer and ask them or restart the chapter and hope it works then.

    2. Veronica

      Did you try clicking the tree? It worked for me.

  10. Chris

    Out of interest the words on the walls used for the box puzzle translate from Hindi to:

    Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆ╬ô├▓├¡Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆ╬ô├╗├ªΓò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓö¼┬╜Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆ╬ô├▓┬óΓò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓö¼ΓöÉ – Present

    I can’t work out the last one on the right!

    1. Maja

      Google translates the one on the right, Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓö¼┬╝Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£├ªΓö£┬╝Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆ╬ô├╗├ªΓò¼ΓûÆΓö£├ªΓö£┬║Γò¼ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆΓö£ΓûÆ, to “phantom”.

    2. Surjit

      Pret means corrupted soul

  11. Eleanor

    When I tapped on the window the corrupted statue disappeared and I didnΓÇÖt get it. I tried with every brain and I still canΓÇÖt get it.

  12. Mollyrose

    I keep trying to color in the door and it wonΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t work. I have the same problem on my iPad and my iPhone….what do I do?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Sounds like a bug. You should contact the developer.

  13. Mollyrose

    Every time I try to color in the door it wonΓÇÖt accept my coloring. Same problem on my iPad. What do I do?

  14. Şebnem Zont

    Can’t set the clock to 3:00

  15. Emcantdoit

    I worked so hard without a walkthrough and then I got to the part when you have to set the TV to 207. It stays black. Nothing happens. I have tried everything. 🙁

  16. Amber

    Ever figure out what the 3 empty squares that are found on several different pictures in both games are for? It’s driving me crazy trying to figure it out lol!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I was wondering that, too. I figured itΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s an Easter egg if you manage to put them together somehow. But no idea, sorry. 🙁

  17. Amanda

    I solved the symbols box correctly, but it wonΓÇÖt open. Am I missing something? I even reset the game and did it again. Nothing.

    1. Gia

      Have you made sure the symbols are centered in the squares? It happened to me once and realized if I clicked on each symbol, they would align. That solved the issue for me.

    2. Chex

      There are two different type of triangles, one with a line and one with a dot. Make sure you’re using the right one.

  18. Vic

    The red curtain has already fallen but I didn’t get the owl statue yet, and also haven’t even found the egg. Do I have to restart it?

    1. Matt uren

      Same for me so cant go any further

    2. Gerlinde

      You need an empty mind.

  19. Laura

    I can’t get the bulb on chapter 2 and I don’t know what to do, I’ve already reset once

  20. N0n4w3

    The bird food doesnt appears!!!

  21. Polly

    My red drape where the hand appears is on the floor, so I can’t give it the egg. Did I miss a step? Thanks new player and I love your videos

    1. Polly

      Ahaaa figured it out! Had to take my brain out first

  22. Clara

    I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t get the puzzle piece from the hand… I go back to the present and the red sheet is on the floor. I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t give the letter to the hand in exchange for the game piece 🙁

    1. Sage Bloom

      Same I can’t even pick up the letter ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£├Ñ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉ╬ô├⌐┬║

      1. hungvipbcsok

        to pickup the letter you need to burn the seal with cigar. And you go back to present by taking the brain out, not using the brain of present.

  23. Shshsg

    Where did you get the sugar cube?

    1. Rmbrmbrmb

      Help I’m searching for it too
      WHERE IS IT???:(((

  24. Alex

    Ok, thank you for explaining the clock puzzle. I HATE that solution, because it doesn’t follow the logic most of the Rusty Lake puzzles follow. I thought the health guide book was simply trying to show that the window shape was the clue for solving the clock. And the deer, well I guess I didn’t figure out that part of it, but it said the past is never dead so I figured it had something to do with the past mind, which was not the case. Arrows on the notebook, or maybe an “=” sign or something that made it more clear that the room layout correlates to the clock would have helped. BUT the clock isn’t like a combo lock, there are only a 12×12 combos in this game, so I ended up brute forcing my way through that one. Not proud of it, and it took a lot away from my enjoyment of the game to do that, but I was messing around and got one on accident. Tried really hard to figure it out AFTER I had the combos, and it still made no sense to me. Was the only puzzle in this game I didn’t solve properly, but I’m still glad I didn’t have to go to a walkthrough til after. The 8 antlers and 4 squares on the door kept making me think those numbers had something to do with it. Oh well…

  25. Beni

    It bugs me to use the walkthrough but sometimes I just don’t know how to move on 🙂

  26. Dee

    The brain part is ridiculously hard. I feel like I wasted my money. I really want to like this series, but who thinks of this?

  27. Amanda

    Não consigo derrubar os bixos do cérebro.

  28. Resa

    I cant give the Letter to the Hand because the birdcage disappeared somehow. What can I do?

  29. Jul
