Chapter 2: London: The Beginning of the End

Start by switching to Dan and interact with Ben to try and piggyback him.

Next, run to the left as Dan and double-jump into the floating blue field that has particles going up. This will cause your gravity to go upside-down. ‘Fall’ upwards through the platforms, but avoid the gravity-switchers that have particles going down.

Eventually, you’ll be able to jump to the left onto some very small platforms. Go left two platforms, and then double-jump into the gravity-switcher with particles going left. This will get you into ‘Left Gravity’ mode.

Jump in a zig-zag way to get out of the ‘pit’ you’re in. Make for the cars to the bottom of the gravity-switcher, and continue going downwards on the screen. Go past the vending machine, and continue down until you get to the toilet. Push the toilet all the way down until you hear a little jingle telling you you were successful.

Head back up and jump into the gravity-switcher pointed downwards (you’ll need to get onto the little elevation and double-jump to hit its edge).

Once you’re down near the toilet, push the wooden crate to the right and into the pit.

Switch to Ben, walk across the wooden crate and to the toilet. First open the toilet door. Now use your bladder (found in the inventory) with the toilet.

With Ben’s call of nature answered to, switch to Dan again and jump into the horizontal L-shaped gravity-switcher. Run left and jump onto the purple balloon to burst it and lower the dead clown. Jump onto the gravity-switcher to the left to return to regular gravity.

Switch to Ben and go to the clown. Use the verb ‘Suck’ (it’s not what you think!) and you’ll finally be light enough for Ben to be carried piggyback.

As Dan, head over to Ben and interact to piggyback him. Alternately, you can walk to Dan as Ben and use the ‘Piggyback’ verb.

Carry Ben all the way right to the red switch, and press the Interact button to let him down again. Switch to Ben and use the Lever to clear the way forward.

From here, you need to piggyback Ben to the far right in an harrowing escape sequence. There’s quite a bit of jumping and double-jumping involved, and you must be wary of the spikes. Otherwise, it’s a fairly simple but exciting run to the end of the chapter.

Chapter 3: The Shed at the End of Time

As Ben, walk to the Neat Hat on the dead guard and use your Handy Liquid Container on it. Pick it up and then open your inventory and wear the Guard Hat.

Switch to Dan and piggyback Ben. Jump across the pit and stand on the white button to open the door (or try to, anyway). Let off Ben and then drag the glowing red door to the left. Once you have enough space, piggyback Ben, double-jump onto the door and onto the other side to access the tunnel.

Proceed past the checkpoint. To find out what you have to do next, look at the lift as Ben (you will have to stand to the left of the lift for this). This will spark a conversation, after which you can talk to the lift. Ask it to take you down, and after that doesn’t work, ask it to reset password.

The password has been sent to the local inbox, so you’ll have to find out where that is and access it.

Switch to Dan and piggyback Ben. Carry him to the right, up the platform and to the far right, where there are a number of objects displayed. Lower Ben and switch to him. Pick up the cracked egg, which is on the third pedestal from the right.

Switch to Dan again and run to the left, then double-jump onto the higher platform. You have to be alone for this, as piggybacking Ben will slow you down too much to jump that high.

Once you reach the higher portal, you will enable the link between the two portals, which will allow Ben to get up onto that platform. Switch to Ben and use the lower portal to get to the higher portal.

Walk towards the fire until you see the ‘Tiny Hot Demons’ object. Use the egg in your inventory with the ‘tiny hot demons’ to cook the egg. Next, use the cooked egg with the handy liquid container to create an energy drink for Dan. Head to Dan and give him the drink from your inventory.

Now that Dan can sprint, he can also get past the fire and onto the small platform to the left of the fire. Jump onto the higher platform, head right and push the computer off of the platform entirely until it crashes down. Get Dan to where Ben is and piggyback Ben down to the busted computer.

Try to use the busted computer as Ben, and then talk to it. Choose to read email and you’ll obtain the password necessary to proceed.

Head back to the lift and say the password to proceed to the next chapter.

Chapter 4: Arrival at the Lair

As Dan, run to the right and jump onto the little platform in the niche just above the closed door. There will be a glowing computer part here, so run into it to grab it.

Next, hop down and head to the left where the carts are. Interact with the carts to proceed to the next chapter.
