Chapter 5

Part 1

Here you’ll meet the ‘bothersome’ crow people. When a crow is next to you, it will keep crowing at you until you go away. As such, you cannot get past a crow directly.

What you can do, however, is wait for the crow to be elsewhere and make your move when the coast is clear.

Begin by watching the movements of the first crow. When it’s going away from you, quickly go up the first flight of stairs and onto the second.

To deal with the second crow, wait for it to go away from you and then sneak into the gazebo that’s up the stairs.

Wait for the crow to be to the right of the gazebo, and then head over to the pink button. This unlocks a handle to rotate the second stairway. Grab it and turn it 180 degrees so that the stairs now go up instead of down.

Repeat the previous process: wait for the crow to be away, sneak into the gazebo, then sneak out when the crow has gone past to the left. Go up the new stairway.

Now rotate the pink handle 180 degrees again to put the next stairway in place. Head up the stairs, avoiding the crow on the way there. While the crow is on the lower floor, step onto the pink button to reveal a new path.

Go up this path while avoiding the crow twice on your way there. Enter the door.
