Welcome to the Into Indie Games walkthrough guide for Carto. This is a puzzle-focused guide to complete the story and it does not cover extras or hidden collectibles.

In this level, you will mostly be dealing with groups of pieces. After you’re free to move around, go southwest towards the bridge and you’ll meet a red-haired person there. Talk to them.
Next, grab the floating map piece near her (you cannot get the one beyond the bridge just yet).
Now, arrange the new piece on the map so that the edges of the map connect correctly:
Now walk far northeast from the bridge all the way onto the new map piece. Once you’re on the white snow of the new piece, rearrange the map so that you can meet and talk to the map in the fur suit.
You need to retrieve his backpack. While still on the piece with the old man, put the new map piece back to where you had put it before (that is, connect it to the old man’s piece). Head to the storage shack and grab the backpack next to it.
Return to the old man and give him the backpack. Once the bridge is fixed, head on into the blue forest.
Use the other map piece to get to the bridge that you encountered first (with the floating map piece you couldn’t reach). I.e. place the blue forest next to yours, step onto the new piece, and place the piece next to the first bridge. Grab the floating map piece near the bridge.
Place the new map piece like this:
Head to the pond and talk to the man there. Grab the map piece near the pond.
Now you need to enter the centre of the square-shaped map piece. To get here, you’ll need to cross the ice lake. Arrange the map so that you can reach the signboard near the ice lake. Below is one way you can arrange the pieces so as to reach the signboard.
When you reach the signboard, slide down the path on the ice lake until you reach the end of the piece.
Now arrange the map like this, to have the square piece connected to your current piece:
Slide onto the square piece, and then rearrange the map like this. Specifically, we are turning the ‘Z’ tile upside-down and sliding onto the ice lake that doesn’t have a signboard. Make sure you get the angle right as well:
When you slide onto it, you should reach a place like this:
Now arrange the map like below, and slide over to the position shown below it.
Continue sliding down the long path here until you bump into the man with the spear.
