Answers for all the puzzles, and by proxy; the achievements. Everything is individually spoiled so that you can try and do the puzzles yourself and blind as much as possible.
 
 

Intro

Here are some things to note before you get started:
 
 

  • The game recommends that you do not save in order to make different choices, like your typical otome game. This game is “completed” by getting the bad endings and messing up, and repeating the time lines. Consider your “flowchart” button to be your quick load, with the different events being your save slots.
  • I personally recommend playing this game blind. It was a gem, and it’s most fun piecing it together yourself. But I realise some of the puzzles are hard, or some people bought the game purely for the achievements. This is where this guide comes in handy.
  • Ensure “rollback” is enabled in the preferences window. You may have to redo this once you click begin. This is strongly advised because you may skip forward by default without catching the passcodes, causing you to have to repeat puzzles.
  • A final recommendation is keep coming to the “Main Route” (also known as the top/first route, and the one you begin with) whenever you succeed or fail a timeline – just to see how the scene changes, as this one is affected most by the other timelines.
  • You will immediately earn the achievement “Locked Out” for playing the initial “cutscene” before the game gives you the reigns to the timelines.

4th Timeline (1st load)

This timeline is the first place you need to go to begin making real progress with the game, albeit you are welcome to go anywhere first. It’s just that this is the first place you don’t come across an issue. This guide is laid out in chronological order of when you come across the puzzle.

The 3rd Timeline is now complete.
 
 
 

1st Timeline/Main Route (3rd load)

This route cannot currently be completed, if you have been systematically following this guide. However, you need to visit it at least once in order to progress in the 2nd timeline.
 
 
Warning: If you cannot answer the “Who is missing?” question by yourself – it’s because you shouldn’t be doing this part yet, and your enjoyment of the game will be ruined by following this guide further. Go back, and play the 3rd and 4th Timelines first. The sections above can help if you struggle with them.
 
 
The Factory Entrance” – This is a potential labelling error. It’s the first scene in the house.
 
 

  • Who is missing?
     
     
     
    Hint: By now, you should know all 4 characters in this game. It’s the only one not on-screen.
     
     
     
    Answer: Rinne

 
The First Hallway” has no puzzles.
 
 
When you reach the “Dining Room” scene with Mikhail, it is recommended that you now leave this timeline and begin the 2nd, as you are currently locked and cannot proceed past this point right now without playing the 2nd route. However, make sure you reach the Dining Room scene itself with a table in the background – just so the game registers that you completed “The First Hallway” on your Flowchart.
 
 
 

2nd Timeline (4th load)

This timeline should be faced after you have finished the 3rd and 4th timelines, and visited the main route at least once. Ensure you’ve finished them both before coming here, or you will face a lock at some point in the route. Like the previous sections, this is laid out in chronological order of when you come across the puzzles.

    Correct choice: I have a family Reason: Nini mentions that she is an orphan, and eludes to a bad childhood multiple times.

 
The Lone Girl

    Hint 1: This choice is unlocked in the 3rd route by talking to Rinne
     
     
     
    Hint 2: It is advice she gives Sev to reassure him.
     
     
     
    Answer: I know what to say.

    Hint 1: Rinne comments in the 4th route that all the codes have been about escaping
     
     
     
    Hint 2: For those who struggle with anagrams, write the letters down, and out of order in a big jumble/mass – just not in a line.
     
     
     
    Answer: Departure Important note: The coding makes this puzzle buggy. The “R” and the “E” are used twice, but count as separate letters, so you must use the ‘correct’ R and E in the right positions. Use the highlighted letters first as you click and drag them to spell the word: “RPTEDUERA”

 
This completes the 2nd route.

1st Timeline/Main Route (5th load)

This is the last timeline load of the game, and you should have all the information needed to unlock every scene in the main route.
