Chapter 8: A Lair Afraid

Piggyback Ben and run to the left, through the door you opened the previous time you were in the lair. Just before where you found the old camera, you’ll find several barrels. Drop Ben there.

First, use the spike from your inventory with the barrel, to poke holes in it. After this, we need to lever the barrel with the lollipop, and then light fire to the trail of magnesium powder by using the spike on the rough stone.

However, there’s a catch: you need to open up the large door at the bottom floor, and you need to get the barrel to bounce its way there.

First, switch to Dan and run down to the room with lots of red stuff in it. Do a running double-jump to reach the lever to the right. Switch to Ben and teleport Ben to Dan’s position. Do NOT use the switch yet!

As Dan, return to where the barrels are. Now switch to Ben and pull the lever. This closes the door. Now, quickly teleport to Dan’s location and use the lollipop on the barrel. If you did it right, the barrel will bounce off the wall and into the corridor where the ancient door is.

Use the spike with the rough stone (near where the barrel was) to ignite the trail of magnesium powder and cause the barrel to blow up. If you positioned the barrel correctly, it will blow up the door. Otherwise, it will blow up the barrel in the red stuff so you can try again with a new barrel.

Head past the door and prepare for another platforming challenge for Dan.

This one’s really short, so go left, and then down through the five timed blocks next to the checkpoint. Proceed right. Beware the blocks with eyes, as you can step on them, but they will shortly explode into the red stuff. Go down, avoiding falling into the spikes, then left and wait for the rotating blocks to have their spikes on the sides. Jump on the top, go left, and grab the RAM.

You can retread the platforming section to get back up, but you can also teleport to Ben’s position if you wish. Either way, return to the carts and use them to proceed to the next emotional chapter.

Chapter 9: FEELING OLD: A study

To understand what you need to do in this level, look at the Votr feed to the left of the bouncer and the dog. You need to accomplish three tasks to be allowed inside the nightclub:

  • Ben must get rid of the spike.
  • Dan must learn to dance.
  • Both Ben and Dan must wear bras.

Getting rid of the spike is the easiest task in this list. Simply use the spike on Dan, sending Dan to the respawning station. Simply run to the right and Dan will deposit the spike before returning to the level.

Next, we’ll get the bras. Head to the Wanking Booth as Ben and wear your glove, then open the door. (Note: if you use the glove with the booth, this won’t work, and you will in fact, take off the glove if you were wearing it).

Inside the Wanking Booth, there’s a bra for you to pick up, so pick it up. Then, open your inventory and examine the bra to remove the underwire.

Use the Mop Head on the Soapy Bowl next to the Wanking Booth. Now go to the store with the big sign that says “Bullid Ell”. Use the soapy mop head on the dirt that’s covering the pink poster. Look at the poster to figure out some of the local lingo.

There’s one more word you need to learn, though. For this, you first need to give Dan the ability to grab walls. Use the sticky glove on Dan to grant him this ability.

As Dan, to the left of the level and up the walls. You then need to get to the far left, upwards, and then far right again, while avoiding the spikes and lasers. Remember to use your wall jump when you need to access platforms you can’t otherwise reach.

Go up and right, jump onto the very tall pillar and then as far right as possible. This will bring you to a portal that lets you simply teleport from the upper floor to the lower floor.

Drop down from here to the platform with the large neon sign of the woman blowing vapour. Switch to Ben and teleport him to Dan’s position. Use your long-distance looking ability (right-click by default) to examine the neon sign. Now you’ve learned another word of the modern lingo.

Get back down to the street.

As Ben, return to the Soapy Bowl and use the Bubble Pipe on it. Now go to the Yoof who emerged from the Wanking Booth when you opened it (he’s the one with the orange hair, wearing a bra). Say ‘Greeto!’ to greet him and then use the option that says his fohsmoh is very cool.

Now pick up the eCig that he threw to the ground and give the Yoof your soapy bubble pipe.

Now that the Yoof is blowing bubbles, bring Dan up to the upper level (use the portal to the left of the Wanking Booth for your convenience). You can now jump on the bubble that the Yoof blows to reach the platform on the far right. To do so, you’ll need to do a running jump once onto the bubble, then double-jump onto the platform.

Here, you’ll find a bra that’s Dan’s size. Jump onto the single-block platforms and onto the bra to grab it as Dan.

Finally, we can learn to dance. Now go back up the single-block platforms to get onto the temporary platform with the red diamond timer. From here, jump right and proceed until Dan comments on how high the holo-projector sign is.

Now, switch to Ben. Open up the Main Menu and go to the Store, which has just opened up. You won’t have enough diamonds to buy any of the items, but that’s fine, because you can get 50,000 diamonds for free! Except the store won’t connect to its server.

On the screen that says Error: 4815, click on the Admin Login button. Here, you can login with your administrator credentials. The username is ‘DAN’, as hinted by the messages. For the password, you will need to talk to Dan repeatedly until the visual novel “Devil’s Kiss” starts up. Here, you will need to pay attention to Dan’s mother’s maiden name, his first pet’s name, and his locker number from school.

Whether you do all that or not, here’s how to proceed: type in this command into the administrator command prompt: “login dan password1”. Now that you’re into the administrator account, type in “setprice all 0”. This will set all items’ price to 0. Alternately, you can make it any amount you like – just remember to make it small enough that you can buy up the items in the store.

Once you’re done, type ‘exit’ into the command prompt to return to the store. Buy the Inflatable See-Saw, the Huge Gun, and the Flaming Torch.

You now have the Big Gun you need to blow up the struts holding up the holo-projector, but it has no batteries. Thankfully, the Electronic Cigarette does. Combine the e-Cig with the Big Gun to transfer the batteries.

Now teleport Ben to Dan’s position and give him the Gun. Have Dan shoot the struts repeatedly until they both break down, bringing the holo-projector down with them.

As Ben, use your long-distance looking ability to look at the Dance Sign.

Now Ben has learned the dance, so return down to the Yoof. Show him your dance moves. Finally, have Ben wear the bra he got (if he isn’t wearing it already). If you check the Votr feed now, it’ll be all green messages. Head to the far right and use the club door to gain access.

Once inside the club, talk to Dan about the ambience, drinks, and music. Finally, suggest copping off with someone, and this will end the level.
