Samsara Room: Secret Level, Achievements and Ending Walkthrough Guide

Samsara Room
By: Rusty Lake

Samsara Room is Rusty Lake’s first room escape game. They re-released it with some new puzzles and it’s completely free without ads or IAPS. This walkthrough guide will show you how to access the secret level and complete it. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

See my other Rusty Lake walkthroughs here.


Main Game | Secret Level

Once you finish the main game, you’ll learn that there’s a secret level. So, how to unlock it? The clues are hidden in Rusty Lake’s tweets. We need four symbols.

1. The first is here in an image about Cube Escape: Arles.

2. The second symbol is found inside this hypnosis video from Mr. Owl. You have to listen from 16:39 to 16:52. The audio says:

“I want you to imagine a square. In the middle, there is a line, running from left to right, right through that square. Imagine that now.”

So the second symbol is a square with a line through it!

3. Next, watch this short clip from Rusty Lake of Cube Escape: The Lake.

They also tweeted it:

Now, look for the third hidden symbol.

4. Next, watch this Samsara Room trailer from Rusty Lake:

They also tweeted it:

Now, look for the fourth hidden symbol.

5. Now we have all four symbols! Play up till the point where you go inside the corpse. Then, instead of the four symbols from the mirrors, add the four you found from their social media. You then get a shrimp!

You can also watch my video for the secret room here:

6. Continue with the game like before. Place the four petals around the portal and add the shrimp. Go through to become a shrimp!

7. Look at the mirror and take the water droplet.

8. Turn right. Look inside the box at some twigs. Light them with the matches and then take the fire.

9. Take the sand from the planter.

10. Pick up the receiver on the phone and then move the numbers around to make a clock. You’ll then get a new time, 2:45.

11. Turn right to the clock and pick up the pencil.

12. Set the clock to 2:45 and take the bottle.

13. Turn right and pull the giant shrimp apart to reveal the corpse. Tap on his mouth and then catch some of the green elixir in the bottle.

14. Go back to the mirror wall and tap on the table. Open the crumpled piece of paper and use the pencil to draw a key on it. Crumple it again and when you open it, there will be a real key. Take it.

15. Use the key to unlock the glass cabinet and then take the air bubble from inside the jar.

16. Go back to the portal and place the elixir on the bottom and the air, water, fire and sand around it. Go through to see the secret ending!

And that’s it! This should also give you the two Steam achievements:

A shrimp: ‘I don’t like shrimp’

A window: ‘Is that me?

You can then continue with the rest of the game as usual. If you need help, here’s my walkthrough.

    The clue you haven’t found can be found by solving this clue (it wouldn’t be fun to just spoil it, but it is indeed tricky).

    Here’s my clue. See if you can find the symbol!

    Trance 1639-1652.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Thank you! Got it! Omg I would have never listened to all 20 min to find that lol.

    2. Cypher

      this number are for what? Samsara or other rusty game.
      If clue are in rusty lake’s media (twitter,FB…) so,new player like me will never be able to solve the games. Because the old posts with clues are gone. Right?
      Useless to try to look inside the game, if i didn”t follow their social networks in those days, i can”t solve it. UFFFF!!!!╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£ΓûÆ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£├ª╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼Γòæ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼├¡

    How did you know that these symbols were for the Samsara room and in what order?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      ThereΓÇÖs a very subtle hint at the end of the game to look at their social media accounts. And the order is the order they were tweeted.

  3. Chris

    Hello, so when I got that ending there’s a Google form with giveaway and there’s a question about the characters at ending, who ar they? I know that little girl is from the game I guess her name is Samsara (probably, but I guess no), so who are they?

    1. blurry

      her name is laura
      if you have played the previous

  4. Guang dian

    What’s the name of the woman at the end? I know the girl is Laura, but the other one who is?

    1. A.S.

      Rose Vanderboom from Rusty Lake Roots

  5. Molly

    IΓÇÖm confused about the secret level. Is the only mention at the end of the game? And how did we know about the clues. Looking back
    And trying to think so when I finished what it said, not sure if it was clear that there are clues. IΓÇÖll have to play again Ha! Just finished the game but wanted to look at the walkthrough afterwards because I was confused about some stuff even though I completed it.

  6. Hminh

    Where is hypnosis Vid from Mr. Owl

  7. Danielx

    I planted the sunflower now I donΓÇÖt have anything to give to the squirrels what do I do now?

    1. Giovanna

      Put the sun in a position that makes the sunflower falls down, and it will drop a seed, wich you will give to the squirrel.

    2. Mel

      you have to let the sun move because then the sunflower falls over and then a sunflower seed comes out which you can then give to the squirrel
      ps: sorry for the late response you must have figured it out and sorry for my bad english

  8. pika

    nice game but i cant have the shirt 🙁

  9. Trisha

    The owl never flew away, so I never got the feather, so. I couldnΓÇÖt enter the portal. Is this a bug in the program? Is there a workaround?

    1. Edwin

      Have you tried right, front, left, front, back?

    2. Darius

      There is. You need to see the notebook in the shelf, it is written the clues and head rotations needed to fly the owl.

  10. MmmEggs

    Man the secret ending wasnΓÇÖt worth it

  11. adam

    Go back to the mirror wall and tap on the table. Open the crumpled piece of paper and use the pencil to draw a key on it. Crumple it again and when you open it, there will be a real key. Take it.

  12. Sakke

    Played trough 3 times, twice with the shrimp. Shrimp on the altar, not getting trough. So no secret level for me. Not going to try again as it seems I did everything right.
