Cube Escape: Paradox – Chapter 2 Complete Walkthrough Guide

Cube Escape: Paradox
By: Rusty Lake


Cube Escape: Paradox is the latest addition to the Rusty Lake franchise of quirky room escape games. It’s the tenth Cube Escape game and thirteenth Rusty Lake game. It can be tricky, so this walkthrough guide should help you if you get stuck. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Walkthrough:

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

106. In the mental health guide, it tells you to give the hand behind the curtain the egg. So remove your brain and do so. Then tap the curtain a few times to reveal a man holding a wooden cube.

107. Try to take the cube and he says he can’t think. So use the knife to cut open his head and place the present mind inside. He’ll turn into Mr. Owl! He says:

“Dale, we meet again. Finding your corrupted soul is the final test.”

Take the cube from him.

108. Tap his head. He’ll turn back into a human. Place the mind of the past in his head and he’ll turn into…I forgot his name. He says:

“Once I was a man like you. But the lake helped me (a great sacrifice was needed) to become something else.

Take the iron cube.

109. Tap his head. He turns back into the first man. Place the future brain in his head. He turns into…a fish. And says:

“My time is limited, Dale.
I need a successor, the ruler of the lake.
Dale, continue your journey and face your corrupted soul.”

Take the glass cube from him.

110. Now you have all three cubes. Make sure to put them in the right way. It goes wood, glass, iron. Then, when you open the cabinet to get the blue vial, there’s some tiny print in there. Use the magnifying glass to read it. It says TV 726. You can’t use the TV at the moment, but do it in a fresh game to get a Steam achievement.

111. Go to the mirror and drink the blue vial. You’ll turn into the corrupted soul! Tap a few times and the whole room will change.

112. Go around the room and find the moth on each side. Tap it to reveal an image. When you get to the door, the moth turns into a key. Pick it up and use it to unlock the door. Go through.

113. Follow the arrows on the trees to your own dead body. Pick up the map to see where you are.

114. Once again, make your way to the X. Meet Mr. Crow. He’ll say, “You know what to do.” Take the knife from him.

115. Walk around more to find this man running around. Try following him.

116. If you follow him to one of the X’s from the Chapter 1 map, you find yourself standing there next to a rock with another map. Tap on him and he says, “Please embrace your corrupted soul.”

117. Follow the rock map to this spot and pick up the corrupted statue. The dots on the tree are actually a map! The arrow on the branch to the right is the goal.

118. Follow the tree map to another corrupted statue and Dale’s body hanging from a tree.

119. When you leave this screen, you’ll be able to spot a deer man running to the left. Follow him to the headless deer. Keep following him to the deer-headed man. He says, “I know you have made your choice. Use your corrupted soul.” Take the corrupted statue from him.

120. There’s a little bonus Easter egg here. If you go to this spot on the map, you’ll see the movie version of Dale and he says, “We are all trapped.” If you’re playing on Steam, you might get an achievement for this.

121. Keep going to the wall. Place all three corrupted statues on it to unlock the door. Go through.

122. Now you’re standing behind Laura with a knife in your hand. You have no choice but to kill her!

123. Pick up the black cube to complete the chapter!

That’s not all, though! See my achievements guide to learn how to unlock all the achievements and two alternate endings.

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.

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

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.

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

वरतमान – Present
अतीत – Past
भवषिय – Expected (Future?)

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

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. 🙁

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!

Amanda

I solved the symbols box correctly, but it won’t open. Am I missing something? I even reset the game and did it again. Nothing.

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.

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

I can’t get the puzzle piece from the hand… I go back to the present and the red sheet is on the floor. I can’t give the letter to the hand in exchange for the game piece 🙁

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…
