Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a large open room.

  • In the main room, two connectors are available. There is a red emitter and a red receiver on the left, near the entrance to the left corridor. There is a fan on the right, close to the entrance door, angled towards to the small room on the back right.
  • In the small room on the right, there is a red receiver, slightly higher up on the wall than usual, and another fan angled outside. The fan is currently inactive. This room is separated from the main area by a purple barrier.
  • The left corridor is blocked off by a blue door, and there is also a window that looks outside. There is a fan at the end of the corridor aimed towards the entrance, and a pressure plate in front of it.
  • Right next to the pressure plate in the corridor is a blue door to a little area that leads to the progress wheel.
