The Company Game
By: gary gogis (Chain Reaction Games)
The Company Game is a new puzzle game by Chain Reaction Games that asks you to crack codes, play with your device’s settings, and interpret Morse code. The puzzles can be tricky, so I’m here to help you with a step-by-step walkthrough guide. This section will help you with the second part of the game, MAZE. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.
Level 0, ╬ô├▓┬╝Γö£Γûô╬ô├▓┬║Γö£Γò¥╬ô├▓┬╝╬ô├▓├¡╬ô├▓┬╝Γö¼Γòù╬ô├▓┬║Γö£├º╬ô├▓┬╝╬ô├▓├║╬ô├▓┬╝╬ô├╗├å / Ruins:
Just tap the white dot and then watch the intro for MAZE.
Level 1, Entrance:
Use the sliders to rotate the tiles so they make an image of a doorway. Then, watch the sections of the maze as they get cycled through. Tap when you see an X in the correct corner to keep that tile in place. It should look like the photo below.
Level 2, Firewall:
Tap EDIT FIREWALL. Then, rotate the rings so that none of them touch the line. Then you’ll get a message from FQ1948.
Level 3, Encoded:
“Szo Escpp Laewk Eqbp Cfx Twbusfg.”
Notice the first letter of each word spells SELECT. So select the text and the option to Decode it will come up. Choose that to see the words:
Tap Three Times With Two Fingers.
You can also use a Caesar Cipher you find online to see how it was decoded. Anyway, use two fingers and tap the screen three times. That’s it!
Level 4, Blink:
You get a message from Lame Frond. Then you’ll see a pink grid with blinking squares. If you pay close attention, you should see that the empty squares make up a 2. Then tap the middle of the bar to switch to yellow to see a 4. And last, tap on the right side of the bar to see green and an 8. So enter 248 as the passcode.
Level 5, FaceGram:
Pinch to zoom each photo and look for a tiny letter. You get:
W R O T E
Then, pull up the arrow at the bottom of the screen to see a cutout of each of the photos. That’s telling you the order to put them in.
T O W E R
So the code is TOWER!
(NOTE: This level is later used to solve Level 8. That’s what the orange dot is for.)
Level 6, Tower:
You can only see half the text here, because the other half is all black. But if you go into to Settings > Display & Brightness and then switch to Dark Mode (or Light Mode if you were already on Dark Mode), you can see the other half. Now you can read BLACK TOWER HOTEL.
Level 7, Records:
When you open the level, you see another message from Lame Frond. Now you have to guess the password. You have four attempts before it resets. It’s like the game Mastermind. Green tells you when you got a number and location correct. Yellow tells you if the number is right but location is wrong. And red means that number isn’t anywhere in the password. Just keep trying until you get it right, as it’s different each time. Then select the Maxwell Hospital Cardiogram Records to complete the level.
Level 8, CardioGram:
There’s that same photo of the man in a parking lot. Then you see the cardiogram records. Zoom in on the clipboard and notice the dates. Go back to MAZE 5 and “like” the three photos that are dated the same as the dates on the clipboard marked YES. It should be the ones dated October 02, 05 and 12. Then you’ll see a big heart. Tap it a few times to get a code. That’s the code for Level 8! Go back to Level 8 and press the green arrow. Enter MH-120515 to complete the level.
Level 9, Wiki:
Read through the wiki about something called an Mvelope. Notice the last page gives you notes for creating the mixture:
+2 C = -1 O, +2 H = -1 C, +2 O = -1 H
Tap START MIXING to create the treatment. The easiest way to get each element to 100/100 is to just add a lot to each to get them over 100. Then just remove the extras. You’ll then have the eyedrops.
Level 10, Eyedrop:
Tap on the eye dropper. You need to get the number at the top to match the number at the bottom. But the real clue is the color sandwiching the eye. You need to point your phone’s camera at something the same color. So first, find something red, then mint green/blue, pink, and then yellow. You can also take a screenshot and then point your camera at the photo on another screen.
Level 11, Cryptogram:
This level is tricky. First, tap the little document icon and read the Cryptograph User’s Guide. Then tap on the ? to see a coded message. There are some clues there. Then, follow the instructions. Open your phone’s settings and find The Company Game under your list of apps. Open the game’s settings. Scroll down to see the gear. Push the gear’s slider to the right. That will turn on the green light on the lock in the game. Then, change the light color to red because of the red circle around OK on the coded message. Move the slider to where the two arrows going in opposite directions would be, because that’s also on the coded message. And last, type in LOOK by the eye emoji because that word is also on the coded message. Then press DECODE to decrypt the message.
Level 12, Search:
First, it says:
“I keep having this dream… I’m wandering through an endless parking lot… I’m searching for something… I wake up just before I find it.”
Then it says:
Do you know what you’re SEARCHING for?”
Open MAZE 9 again to see that they were searching for the Mvelope in the parking lot.
So use your iPhone’s search feature to search for Mvelope. The Company Game will come up as an option. Tap it to solve the puzzle.
Level 13, Slideshow:
There’s another message from FQ1498. Then, there’s a play button next to a question mark. Press PLAY and watch the slideshow. The images are from MAZE 1! Go back and watch it again. You can take screenshots of the letters that go by quickly or take video and scrub it slowly. The idea is to find each of those images in MAZE 1 and note down the letter you see. Then put them in the same order as the slideshow in Level 13. You should end up with ABOMINATIONS. Tap the question mark and type in ABOMINATIONS to complete the level.
Level 14, Hotel Portal:
You get another message from FQ1948. It tells you to go to LIES.15 and connect to the network JS0000. So go to LIES.15. Some things have changed and there’s a lot to do there now. Bear with me.
The error at the top translates to: M is seven
