Chapter 7 (Contd.)

On the new piece, head east and talk to the man there. After using the bed, go down the ladder. Head west from here to find a map piece. Go back up the ladder and place the new piece to the north of the east piece. Rotate it a couple of times so that on the map, the ladder is ‘above’ the rock.

Go underground and head to this new piece, then go up the ladder. When you’re up, grab the new map piece and talk to Pinko. Place the new piece on the map to form a square, like so:

Now go back down the ladder and you’ll find you can access the new piece. If you can’t see a path to it, then you probably need to rotate the piece above ground.

Head to the new piece. Turns out the hot spring is quite dry. Go back above ground (near the bed) and head towards the new piece above ground. Walk into the gushing cave-thing’s mouth, and you’ll head straight in.

Next up, you need to heat the spring. Return above ground using either the whirlpool or the ladder, and then take the elevator you came from back to the area with the goats.

Proceed the way you came through the kitchen and through the second elevator. Talk to Thumbo again and you’ll get the key to the ‘goat’. Now you need to return all the way back to the piece with the goats.

Take the elevator again to Bird Canyon, go down the ladder to the kitchen, and then surface onto the piece with the goats. Here, approach the goat shown below and give it your key.

This unlocks a ‘fast travel’ menu on the goat. Use it to go to the Volcano Crater. Head east and talk to Pinko. Once you’re down the rope, tug on the rope to alert Pinko.

Now follow her instructions: go north to the wall in the back. Flip the switch on the left, and then the one on the right. Now interact with the wheel and follow Pinko’s directions on how to rotate the wheel.

If you’ve done it right, things will start shaking. Head towards the rope, only for things to get dicier.

Open up the map screen and rotate the piece several times, very quickly, to cause a whirlwind to appear, get larger, and blow you out.

Head towards the folks on the other piece and you’ll get your next instruction: to get away as far as you can from the volcano.

Move the piece you’re on (with the people) away from the volcano piece so far that the volcano piece is no longer on the screen. This may take some tries and if you moved the volcano, then you may have to move the volcano again elsewhere.

If you get it right, you’ll have a cutscene and then return to the spring. Proceed through the spring and then use the whirlpool to back up. After the announcement, get to the goat and head to the Grand Lobby.

Talk to Thumbo for another letter from Granny. Next, use the minecart on the Grand Lobby piece to head out into the next chapter.
