Gameplay Hints Forum Guidelines

Post by antti » Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:32 pm

Welcome to the gameplay hints forum!

This is intended to discuss the levels of the game in detail and for offering help to players who are stuck in the game. Please use the spoiler tags for any text, images or video that might give away solutions to puzzles or similar! I also urge you to not give away solutions directly but instead try giving subtle hints. Giving multiple hints that gradually reveal more and more of a given puzzle can often be a good approach.

Most importantly, try not to give up and resort to these hints too easily: the game is much more enjoyable if you can overcome the challenges by yourself, even if it takes a while!

Thank you! :D

Maybe it would be good to move some "hints" topics already created from general forum here?
