The Guides walkthroughs are up!
The Guides is out and I’m excited. I wrote a short preview before it was released, which can also serve as a mini-review. Long story short though, it’s worth getting if you’re a fan of smart, well-made games that tickle your mind in exciting ways.
Still, we are only human and people encounter puzzles that are too difficult all too often. Nobody wants you to give up and by reaching out to the magic internet you’re one step closer to overcoming whatever puzzle tried to get the best of you. You’re hungry for guides, and here they are!
First of all, a plug for the overview page. These exist for every game posted about on the site and have all sorts of interesting links like availability on all platforms, other games by the developers and similar games. In the case of The Guides though, there’s also a link to The Guides Compendium which is worth a read all on its own, if you’re into the background of the main game.
Now the real guides! I’d recommend checking out the spoiler-free hints first to preserve the feeling of accomplishments. Nothing wrong with getting a little help when you need it! If the hints are weak sauce, check out the walkthrough pages for answers and explanations of the logic behind the trickier ones.
