Faraway

Thanks for the feedback!!! 70-80%?!? Hahah close enough for me.�� I would like to see someone get this 100% accurate though. Maybe one day when I'm bored I'll pick it up and try again. This def was an interesting game... and they need to create more levels soon, with extra hidden eggs! And yes with all the cool glitches in level 0, they could try to incorporate something hidden within.. I was almost certain that the father was going to appear dead in level 0. ���� anyways well worth the $$$

Thanks for your effort, I have noticed something so just wanted to share and wouldn't have been able to do that if it weren't for your effort.

I tried also inputting the dates of the notes and sorted them by the order of the dates, as we know the date of Lv 6 happened before Lv 5, so I sorted it. Also summing up the coordinates by order and plotting the solution on excel. The shape looks more like the gate, still wasn't quite exact. I also tried grouping them by month to see if they are separate shapes to be joined by the dots on a month to month basis but to no avail.

Still, the shape seems to be telling me that Lv 16 is where the solution lies, so I tried to go through every steps of the hints on Lv 16 and looking it through Lv 0, but couldn't find anything. Just sharing thoughts.

Another thought which I have yet to tried, since Lv 6 is the Lv where the notes were off-dates perhaps the solution is on one of the hints on that stage? Some of the hints will take you to walk a bit so I'm guessing that by looking through the hint lense on Lv 0, one of the hints might take us to a hint gate which may be the special bonus.

next step with coordinates

I've figured a bit more about what's going on with the coordinates, though I haven't been able to relate it to level 0.

The key is figuring out where to start...


These are not absolute coordinates, they are relative coordinates.
I also plotted the first 17 as steps on a plane and got the diagram of a portal. Thanks for the earlier tip about ordering the steps by date instead of by level:

However, that doesn't give much clue about what to do with the coordinates of -53.7788772, -107.5341683 from note 3 on level 18. In absolute terms they just give a point on the oceans (though making them positive gives a spot near Lake Baikal in southern Siberia). What if they are also relative to something else? I began to review the text on the notes, and in particular the text on notes 3 seem to give clues:

Level 1: "Anadolu. Anadolu," she kept saying. I'm certain I came to the right place.
Level 2: "In Anadolu, they placed a beacon that shows the way," she whispered.
Level 4: I started at an ancient site on Earth, but this feels even older than 9000 BC.

Wikipedia tells us "Anadolu is the Turkish form of Anatolia, which refers to a region of the world that is now part of the nation of Turkey". Searching for ancient anadolu 9000 BC or ancient turkey 9000 BC quickly turns up en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6bekli_Tepe , the "World's Oldest Temple" according to National Geographic. Photos and descriptions of stone blocks and carvings seem to fit very well with the theme of the game.

Google maps gives us 37.2171641, 38.854393 for Gobekli Tepe. If we add -53.7788772, -107.5341683 we get -16.5617131, -68.6797753. Putting that into the maps takes us directly to Puma Punku in western Bolivia part of the Tiwanaku site. That site also has great stone carvings, dates stretching back to cover 9000 BC, and mysteries about it. Even an article speculating about connections to Gobekli Tepe - grahamhancock.com/newmanh2/

Much too good to be a coincidence - the game must be saying these ancient temples included a portal from Gobekli Tepe to Puma Punku / Tiwanaku which the characters follow.

Some notes and a chart of the coordinates, are at docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Uj2jAzF87urFsAIoDRKOXCQdnAIcniUWBDf2UIKZyFo/



Now, is there a connection to Level 0 and more to come? Let's see if we can figure it out.

Level 0 error

I LOVE THIS GAME. I really loved level 14. It was definitely the toughest puzzle.

I found all the letters, found level 0, hidden under the 100% complete note but I get an error on the level. It loads a blank map, no level rendering 🙁.
