Title: The Shaft
Post by: lanchong on 03 Aug 2018, 09:11
I love the graphics and the gloomy atmosphere but I'm stuck.

I'm on the bent plate. I got the wire and I've taped it. I suppose the next step is to get the knife in order to cut the rope. How ?

Thanks

Use the pliers on the taped wire to bend a hook. That will do as a nice fishing rod for the knife

Hint:

You need something to drop down onto, something sturdy and close enough to the bent plate.

Solution:

Interact with the barrels directly underneath.

I've downloaded the latest version from 1st Aug. The load game button doesn't work when I exit the game and launch it again. Is this normal ?

Hey there, no, there was a bug that was fixed later. Apologies for the inconvenience, please re-download the fixed version from here (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1p2N25CRFMhZwim8C2UrWsKI2CPmHJkua).
It will need to be replayed, too. Sorry about that!
