First, if you’re looking for my review of this game, try here.

This game is exceptionally hard, many of these puzzles were worked through as a group on stream, so I edited my stream video. I apologize for the low quality of the first few videos, it was an unplanned walkthrough!

I am also still working on the video walkthroughs and will add them as I get them done. Please click the subscribe link on the left side of the page or follow comments to be updated!

Obviously, ALL of these videos contain SPOILERS! Hints by CrazyCanuck. His steam link is here. Solutions in the video, YouTube description gives time for each puzzle.
