Escaping the mansion isn’t as difficult and confusing as it can be intimidating it is for new players – so as the first ever person to escape the mansion. I am going to give you some tips for all of the puzzles in the mansion!
How to Escape the Mansion
You must recognise that the mansion is randomly generated every game – there are 5 rooms with puzzles that you can find; Kitchen, Library, TV Room, Saloon and Crafting (?) room. From this, there are two keys and one stone hand that you need to find. It should be noted that if you complete a puzzle, and there is no key, there will be images depicting where the keys are. these images or symbols are drawings of a book, TV, gramophone and paint brush and knife (looks a bit like a knife and fork). Once you have the items, take them to the atrium/main room, with the fountain and ritual circle.
This is always (in my experience anyway) found on the ground floor, and can be located by writing on the wall that says “Kitchen” you don’t need to interact with these doors, you can just run into them. The puzzle in this room is, in my opinion, probably the most difficult. You must find the meat leg. What makes this so difficult? The meat leg is randomly spawned somewhere on the map, so it’s a good idea to do the other puzzles first unless you happen to come across it. When you find the meat leg thing – use the interact (Left Mouse) button on the hanging pans thing near the stove/fire in the corner. This will cause a shift in weight and the stone hand will drop down. Further details on the hand will be noted at the bottom.
Possibly the easiest puzzle. The library is spread over two floors with the puzzle being signalled by a marking on the ground of a key, next to a bookcase. You may notice one of the books looks a bit out of place, and there is one missing. Look at the book for a symbol; a heart, diamond, spade or club, like a deck of cards. Find the book somewhere in the room that matches the one on the shelf and put it in the missing slot, the bookcase will lower, revealing a key, or the locations of the keys.
The TV Room puzzle is fairly simple, all you have to do is click/interact with the screen depicting a picture of the Ayuwoki (at least I think it’s the Ayuwoki) the screen will then show a still image and not change, you will also hear the Michael Jackson Heheee which is pretty funny. Once you’ve got five TV’s, all of the screens will stop flashing and depict the image, opening the safe adjacent to the TV’s, revealing a key, or the locations of the keys.
Also known as the music room, a large room that’s playing music through a gramaphone. You can find this room by listening out for a piano sound, or by following the scrawling of “Saloon” on the walls. Once in this room, head to the piano and rudely, but strategically, deafen everyone on discord. Listen to the tune of the piano in the background, you need to repeat this on the piano. If you didn’t quite hear the tune, wait for the record scratch and it will reset. The tune plays four notes, and there are four keys on the piano – the highest pitch is on the right and the lowest on the left – repeat the pattern of the piano you can hear in the background and the piano opens, revealing a key.
I’m not completely sure how this room works, because I think I’ve just gotten really lucky with the spawning, so I wish you luck with this one. The room can be found through the symbols of a knife and paintbrush on the walls. Once inside, have a look at the wall with some facial markings, and one mask placed. You must find and place the masks on the missing spots. This is where I’m not sure how it works. The masks are usually in the room, or just outside – but there have been rumours of them spawning around the map. I’ve found that there’s usually one in the corner opposite the wall where you place the masks, one in a little crevice opposite the wall, and one outside the room, next to the door with the long, straight corridor. Once you have found all the masks, match them to the markings on the wall – if you’re not sure, have a look at the mask and note that they either have horns, a big smile going up to its forehead (through the nose), one with diamond eyes and one that escapes my mind at the moment. Once they are all in place, the picture on the wall will slide away, revealing a key, or the locations of the keys.
It is ideal to take the keys to the main room once you get them and put them on the ground near the door. The stone hand that you found in the kitchen needs to be taken to the main room fountain, where there is a space for it to go on the back of the statue – indicated by a sparkly thing. Place the stone hand on the statue, and an arm will rise up at the from of the fountain, holding a beating heart. Take the heart and place it on the ritual circle, on the sparkly part closest to the fountain. This completes the ritual and creates access to the door to escape. Next, put the keys in the key holes and get tf outta there! It doesn’t matter if you place the heart and do the ritual before finding the keys!
