Transporter Room Guide

This guide will help you solve the puzzle-filled Transporter Room. The walk-through below is your key to mastering the game’s storyline and unlocking the next set of challenges. From card hierarchies and Morse code conversions to understanding the unique card machines, this guide has got you covered. This guide has been meticulously crafted to help players address the most challenging puzzles and intricate card combinations that the Transformation Room has to offer.

Step 1: Collecting All 13 Cards

  1. Start your journey in the Transporter Room by picking up cards scattered across the floor and various surfaces.
  2. Continue to do this until you cumulate a total of 13 cards.

Step 2: Operating the Computer

  1. After collecting all the cards, move onto the computer flashing with a white message.
  2. Equip each card, one after the other, and swipe them in front of the computer.
  3. Once done, ensure all green lights above the machine are switched on, indicating that all cards have now turned white.

Step 3: Reading the Book – Chapter 1

  1. Navigate to the book within the room.
  2. Read the first chapter of the book carefully.

Step 4: Inserting the Card into the Pedestal Machine

  1. Go to the pedestal that is holding the overlapping yellow shapes.
  2. Take any card from your collection and place it into the bracket of the pedestal machine.

Step 5: Reading the Book – Chapter 2

  1. Return to the book, which will now have a new chapter.
  2. Read Chapter 2 of the book.

Step 6: Figuring Out the Card Number Representation

  1. Using the hints provided in Chapter 2 and the card machine, establish the chronological order of the cards.
  2. Select the “Question” option that appears at the bottom right corner after exiting Chapter 2.
  3. Enter the cards in their correct order.
  4. On successful entry, Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 will be displayed in the book.
  5. Read both chapters carefully.

Step 7: Understanding the Card Machine

The card machine helps match your collected cards against the [Sun], [Birdman], and [Flower] cards. This information will be beneficial in solving the puzzle:

  • [Birdman] is weaker than [Human and 2 Moons].
  • [Birdman] is stronger than all remaining cards.
  • [Flower] is weaker than [Birdman], [Human and 2 Moons], [2 Humans], [3 Moons], and [Moon and Star].
  • [Flower] is stronger than all remaining cards.
  • [Sun] is weaker than everything except [Wind].

Using this information, we can partially sort the cards as follows:

0 = [Wind]

1 = [Sun]

2 = [Star] OR [Moon] OR [2 Moons] OR [Human] OR [Human and Moon]

3 = [Star] OR [Moon] OR [2 Moons] OR [Human] OR [Human and Moon]

4 = [Star] OR [Moon] OR [2 Moons] OR [Human] OR [Human and Moon]

5 = [Star] OR [Moon] OR [2 Moons] OR [Human] OR [Human and Moon]

6 = [Star] OR [Moon] OR [2 Moons] OR [Human] OR [Human and Moon]

7 = [Flower]

8 = [3 Moons] OR [2 Humans] OR [Moon and Star]

9 = [3 Moons] OR [2 Humans] OR [Moon and Star]

10 = [3 Moons] OR [2 Humans] OR [Moon and Star]

11 = [Birdman]

12 = [Human and 2 Moons]

Chapter 2 in the book mentions that when two symbols are next to each other, they are multiplied together. Using this, it’s clear that [Human] is higher than [Moon] since [2 Humans] is greater than [Flower], whereas [2 Moons] is lower than [Flower].

We know that [3 Moons] and [2 Humans] must be less than 11 but greater than 7. Therefore, [Moon] must be 2 since 3 x 3 x 3 = 27, which is too high, and it can’t be 1. Following this, [2 Moons] = 2 x 2 = 4, and [3 Moons] = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8.

Since [Human and 2 Moons] is equal to 12 and we now know that [Moon] is 2, we can determine that [Human] is 3 by dividing 12 by [2 Moons], or 4. With this information, we can deduce everything except [Star] and [Moon and Star]. However, using simple logic, it’s clear that [Moon and Star] has to be the higher of the two. This will allow us to slot them into the remaining positions.

With all this information, we can determine the final order as follows:

0 = [Wind]

1 = [Sun]

2 = [Moon]

3 = [Human]

4 = [2 Moons]

5 = [Star]

6 = [Human and Moon]

7 = [Flower]

8 = [3 Moons]

9 = [2 Humans]

10 = [Moon and Star]

11 = [Birdman]

12 = [Human and 2 Moons]

Step 8: Activating the Machine in the Room’s Corner

  1. Move away from the book and towards the machine located in the corner of the room.
  2. Examine the machine twice to collect two sets of reels.

Step 9: Setting up the Desk’s Machine

  1. Examine and add both sets of reels to the machine located on the desk.
  2. Check the nucleus to see five symbols: [Birdman], [Birdman], [Birdman], [Flower], and [Human].
  3. Multiply the symbols together as per instructions given in the book to get 27951.
  4. Convert 27951 into alien symbols: [Moon], [Flower], [2 Humans], [Star], [Sun].
  5. Set up the left reel with this conversion.

Step 10: Changing the right reel

  1. Turn the handle on the machine to change the cards on the right reel.
  2. Verify that the right reel reads (from top to bottom): [Human and 2 Moons], [2 Humans], [Star], [Sun].

Step 11: Activating the Machine

  1. Navigate back to the nucleus and input these cards into the four slots.
  2. The correct input will activate the machine and allow you to progress in the game.
