2. First gate
- 4 body parts
- 1 coin
- 1 place to spend a coin
How to obtain and spend the first coin is described in section 2.5. Art studio.
Shelves on left side: Arrange the arrows to make the pebbles fall into second hole from the left, filling the bottle. Pull the pin at the top to drop pebbles. If you make a mistake, you can restart with the icon in top right corner. Take the bottle.
Frames on the desk: Toggle up the rightmost slider (nothing stops you from sliding all of them). The revealed character will be holding a bowl with pebbles. Take it from their hand.
Shelves in top middle: Shove everything away to reveal a bottle with pebbles on the left shelf.
Jar in bottom right: Drag the 3 containers into their place and SLOWLY drag each of them towards the jar to transfer the contents. You can reset if you spill. You may need to shake the bottles a little if pebbles get stuck in the thin neck. Put a lid on top and take the jar.
Getting the body part: Give the jar to the guy and look at the bouquet he put aside on the desk. Unwrap it and drag away the flowers to reveal the bone.
Desk on right side: Take a fish from the drawer. Solve the puzzle to receive a second fish.
Nightstand: Take the fish from the glass. Look at the photo. Drag stars from the bowl onto strings. Take the bug from the bowl.
Bird in the window: Give it the bug, it’ll raise the wing and let you take the last fish.
Getting the body part: Put all the fish in the aquarium, take the tooth from the chest that just opened.
To enter the bakery, you will need a password. Scroll to the very left and look at the girl’s book/diary. Click on each of the dots to reveal a symbol. The sequence is: donut, birthday cake slice, croissant. Go to the bakery door and click on the symbols to change them into the previously mentioned sequence. You will get the baker achievement.
Hangers: Arrange the utensils so that their bottom aligns with the grey dot below. There is one extra hanger to allow you juggling. If you don’t see a dot (except for rightmost one which is supposed to be empty), it’s probably the hanging tool covering it. Once you finish, a plant will appear on the empty hanger.
Egg: Click it a couple times to reveal a bunny(?) holding a jar.
Middle cupboard: Second left door hides a puzzle. Solve it and you’ll get a lemon.
Jars: No idea how this works, I kept flipping random switches and the moon just popped into existence.
Bowl of soup: Look at the girl behind the counter first. She will have three symbols on her shirt: mountains, angel worm, birthday taco. The spoon in the soup spins like clock’s arm. Pick out the three aforementioned symbols in order. There is a reset button above the 3 empty boxes in case you need it. Take the ring from the bowl.
Sandwich: Click on the banana several times to get 6 banana slices outside of the initial two. Put them on the bread in ascending order of the number of stems: top 123, middle 456, bottom 78. Eat the sandwich by clicking on it and pick up the leaf.
Getting the body part: Go to the bowl with cookie dough in bottom left. Put all 6 ingredients on the counter. Form 6 cookies by dragging the mouse from the bowl onto the tray. The sixth cookie you make will have a tooth in it.
Girl with cup in hand: The goal here is to fill the cup with correct ingredients. You make them fall from the dispenser by clicking on pictures at the top, but until you fix the mosaic in the top right, all you will see are question marks. Take note of the symbol the girl is thinking of. Leave her for now and look at the scroll hanging on the wall beside her. It will tell you that she’s actually thinking about a spider and a tooth. Go back to her, make it rain those two things and drag the cup from her hand around to catch. Careful! If you slide too fast, the contents of the cup will just fall off. Having more than one of each ingredient in the cup is permitted. SLOWLY return the cup to her, and with her other hand she will present an eyeball.
Guy with the laptop: Unwrap the bizarre lollipop by clicking on it a couple times.
Gum machine: Keep rotating the handle until the eyeball falls off.
Getting the body part: Place the 3 eyeballs on the strings held by an… entity on the right. It will drop the bone held in the other hand.
The first coin is in possession of a bird above apothecary. Click on the paper it’s holding and pop all the shapes drawn – one of them will reveal a coin.
Use that coin on the phone booth directly below the bird to find out the code needed to enter the art studio: 6459. Once inside, enjoy an in-game drawing board.
This location does not have any body parts to collect, but entering the art studio awards the artist! achievement.
3. Second gate

Wall-mounted shelf: Place the dragonfly and spider in the frame. Hand will open, revealing a tile with shapes on it. You can also put two flowers in the vase but we don’t yet have the last one.
Drawer cabinet: The top middle drawer contains a needle that you will need. You can also place the tile on the right side, but you can’t finish this puzzle yet either.
Table in bottom right corner: Place the needle in place.The goal is to connect matching shapes. You can reset if you need to, but the solution looks like two X letters on top of each other. Take the revealed flower.
Getting the body part: Go back to the shelf with a hand on it, place the last flower, take the revealed tile. Go to the drawer cabinet again, place the tile, look at the photo in the opened drawer. Click on the sweater a few times to unzip it and get access to the lungs.
You can force the right time by manipulating the clock above the door to the laundromat. Make the clock show 3:55 and enter the museum.

4. Third gate
- 6 body parts
- 2 coins
- 2 places to spend coins
- Solution for the necklace puzzle from earlier
1st coin: As you scroll to the left, there will be a rat between the museum and the newly opened section of the city. That rat is holding a coin.
2nd coin: Found above the market, to the left of stranger’s apartment. Click on the smoker in the window. Click the wound on his arm to widen it and get a coin from inside.
1st coin spender: Between the market and restaurant, you’ll see a vending machine in the back alley. Pay a coin and press the button corresponding to the slot with an envelope. Open it and crank the lever to play with the postcard.
2nd coin spender: Look at the paper attached to the lamp post next to the post office. Use a coin to assemble the skeletal carousel.
Solution to the necklace from earlier: Read the note on the wall of the market (next to the girl at pub’s entrance). It will show you the combination for the necklace of the boy from earlier. If you go back and remake the necklace as shown in the note, the moon will turn into a coin you can take.
To enter the pub, you need to go to the mailbox in front of the post office first. Slide the few outstanding shapes so that they align with the rest of the grid. Open the envelope and inside you will see balloons, a glass with few things inside, and a pub sign. Look at the contents of the glass. It’s a dragonfly, lemon slice, flower, and a worm. Go back to the pub entrance and zoom in on the girl’s hands and drag the four ingredients into the glass.Pair holding hands: The guy will have a small slider near his eye socket. Rotate the eyes until you get one with a fly. Take the fly.
Balloons: Pop them until a bug appears in bottom left corner. Grab it.
Guy sitting at the counter: To his right there are domino pieces that need arranging. A couple extra pieces to mislead you again, but rather easy. When you’re done, grab the bug from the piece in the middle.
Birthday cake: Move away the middle strawberry on the top layer to reveal a code: Squiggly = rhombus with two dots, hexagon, triangle.
Pile of presents: On the right there is a diagram of connected rings and two circles at the bottom. Placing a circle on the ring makes the rings fill out TWICE OUTWARDS. To fill all the rings, drop the circles two pieces away from the outermost ones. Rotate four triangles that are pointing downwards and click on the three dots to reveal panels with symbols you can interact with. Use the symbol combination from earlier: rhombus with two dots, hexagon, triangle to get a fourth bug.
Ornament in top right corner: Move away third triangle from the left to uncover a spider. Give it four bugs and it will let you take the key.
Getting the body part: Return to the pile of presents and open the big one with the key to get the liver.
Hanging shelves – fish: Run your cursor over the middle section of fish’s body to get rid of all the scales and reveal all symbols on the right. Pair those symbols by matching their shapes. The right section will slide away to reveal a hand holding a torn piece of paper. That’s our clue.
Hanging shelves – dominos: Pick up a quarter circle item lying on the domino board and solve the domino. There are three extra pieces that you will not use. Little hint: vertical pieces always come from rotating the horizontal pieces clockwise. Five flies will show up, middle one will be holding another scrap of paper.
Vinyl player: Adjust the sliders to align the shapes with the needle’s end in order shown in top right: triangle, circle, square. A door will open revealing another quarter circle piece.
Desk by the window: Take the scissors. On the left, click on all greyed out squares to reveal numbers underneath: top 864, middle 135, bottom 279. You can place the two pieces of paper on the right and it’s not too hard to make out the four digit password already, but we will get the last piece later anyway.
Coffee table: Look closer at the girl in the tower and give her the scissors. Click again to make her cut off part of her hair and reveal the third quarter circle on her earring.
Table in bottom right corner: Replicate the sequence from the desk – top 864, middle 135, bottom 279 – with the number of flowers on tiles. Middle piece will lift up, revealing the last piece of paper with the four digit password. You can go back to the desk on the left and see beyond any uncertainty that the four digit code is indeed 3251.
Dog: Put five pieces from the floor into the bowl and you will get a zoom in on the dog’s collar. Complete the collar and you’ll get a crown.
Getting the body part: Finally we can use the four digit code from the torn paper earlier. As a reminder, it’s 3251. Enter the code on the phone, slide the bottom bar to unlock. Give the person on phone screen the crown and you’ll get a foot.
Customer’s basket: Take the carrot from the basket.
Fish on the wall: Click several times on the seam to open it and take the little guy from inside the fish.
Big shelf on the right: Drag the items to where they belong. There is only one free space at a time, so the starting point are the sealed cups on top right. That will free up a spot between the thin bottles, and so on. When you place the final jar at the top left, the rightmost jar will fall over and drop an apple.
Counter: Take the white flower seed from the right side. You can place the carrot and apple, but we’ll have to come back here anyway.
Glass containers in bottom right: Knock away the glasses to reveal three flower pots. Plant the seed in the empty middle pot. Put the little guy on the swing. He will hold up a leek for you.
Getting the body part: Go back to the clerk, put the apple and veggies in their places. Apples will slide to the right, revealing a stomach.
Look at top left corner. There is a square shape formed from smaller squares, with the exception of bottom right corner, which is a differently colored circle.
Carousel: The only thing you can do for now is take the screwdriver and notice that the carousel is missing three baskets.
Bowl on the desk: Click above the bowl to spawn ants from thin air. When you fill the bowl enough, it will fall over and along with the ants, it will drop a carousel basket. Also there is another 5×5 grid of squares, where the circle is in fourth column, second row.
Power socket: Turn the middle screw with screwdriver. One of the flowers in top left will have a carousel basket. On the left there is again the square grid, with a circle in second column, first row.
Paper in bottom left corner: Place the three circles on positions you found across the room:
1. Bottom right corner (found in the room overlook)
2. Fourth column, second row (found next to the ant bowl)
3. Second column, first row (found by the power socket)
A basket will pop up in bottom left corner.
Getting the body part: Attach the missing baskets to the carousel and the room will become ornated with two strings of lightbulbs. On the left string in place of one of the bulbs there will be a brain.
Bouquet in the middle: Blow away the dandelions by hovering over them. Fill up the shape with the broken pieces to get a paper ship.
Flasks above the counter: Look at the can first. Keep clicking on the top to open it, a few leaves will sprout out. Take the shirt button from between them. Step away from the can, place the paper ship in the middle flask. It will move away to reveal a marinated frog. Take the frog.
Couple at the table: Look closer at the plate. Move away the dumplings(?) in the front to reveal a tiny table. Look at the table. There are two cards with pictures and two blank ones. Place the frog on the left card and it will reveal another shirt button underneath. Exit the table (both the small and the big one).
Bat: Gift him with vision by sewing the two buttons onto its eye sockets. It will reveal four numbers at the top. You have to make the sum of the grey lines in the column match the number on top. If you’re lazy here’s one of the possible solutions:14=3+5+6. 8=2+2+4. 12=1+4+7. 9=1+2+6. Once you’re done, a snake(worm?) will appear on the bat’s body. Take it.
Getting the body part: Go back to the tiny table on the pair’s normal sized table. Place the snake on the last empty card and take the piece held by a hand in bottom left corner.
Go to the single customer on the left. Make his ear whole again and he will let you take the kidney from his chest pocket.
Top left corner shelf – squares: The symbols on the sides must match between the tiles and outside of the frame. The easiest way to solve it is by process of elimination – place only the tiles that have no other contenders for the slot. The order I’ve done was: bottom left, top right, middle left, bottom right, middle right, bottom middle, top left, top middle, center. A lightbulb will fall down from the top of the screen.
Top left corner shelf – letters: Fit the envelopes onto the grid, can’t say much more. Hint: start with the big ones. Take the key from the hand that appeared.
Left side of the desk: Open the envelope, move away the plants, read the four digit code: 4283.
Laptop: Enter the code 4283 to unlock. There are three files on the desktop. Open the last one and click a few times on the plant to make it bloom and reveal a lightbulb.
Clock on the wall: Align dots on the rings with clock’s stationary hands. Open the eyes of revealed face and take the lightbulb hanging inside one of them.
Right side of the desk: Open the box with the key you got from the envelope tetris puzzle.
Getting the body part: Hang the four lightbulbs in the top right corner of the room and click on each one to make a section of the image visible. Once you light up all of them, the pelvis will be yours.
