Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a long hallway with three pressure plates, a fan and a platform. There is a blue door blocking access to a clone, and the progress wheel is visible on a higher ledge.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
This puzzle introduces the mechanics of the platform. When the player picks up a platform, they raise it above the head, and a clone of the player or some equipment can be placed on it. The platform itself can be used to activate a pressure plate. When the player is carrying around a clone on top of a platform, they can look upwards and switch to the clone, and the clone can look downwards and switch back. A player can grab the platform from a clone that is carrying it, snatching it away.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
There is a platform. You can use it for other activities than just holding it above your head.

If you're having trouble gaining elevation:

[ hint ]
Prepare one clone at a good spot, then have the other clone carry the platform around.

If you're having trouble switching clones:

[ hint ]
It is definitely possible to switch to a clone that is carrying another, or is being carried by another.
