Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you see a small area with two connectors. There is a red emitter and receiver and a blue emitter and receiver as well, in different areas, one blocked off by a blue door. There is a horizontal fan at the end of a corridor leading towards the progress wheel.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of this puzzle is Windstream, you will have to use the wind to your advantage at some point.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
You cannot make progress on the red laser until you connect the blue laser, but connecting it immediately is inconvenient. What can be done about that?

If you're trying various angles:

[ hint ]
You are probably trying to block the blue laser beam from reaching the receiver. Here are some things that will not work: using intersecting laser beams, using your own body, feeding the connector with both types of laser colors. What else is left? What other equipment do you have remaining.

If you've figured out the blue receiver, but not the red:

[ hint ]
Read the first hint again. Can you do some pre-work before using the connector as a blocking tool?


[ solution ]


Upon completion of the puzzle, the player hears another message from Cornelius Noema Messages. That is, if this is the twelfth and final gold puzzle that the player solved, they will hear the twelfth message.
