I don't know how to pronounce it, or even what it means but I love the game! Detarou's latest release is completely Detarou; in other words, it's a wonderfully weird, surreal, delightfully presented and maybe even a little unsettling point-and-click game with three endings to discover. The game itself defies any sense of reality, but it's funny, quirky, surprising and a real pleasure to play. And each ending only adds to the enjoyment of play with startling humour.

Derereba = in this context, "if I can escape" (in a more general context, I would translate as "if I can get out").

Stuck.

Need to open the box, and have figured out BLACK SQUARE = 2, TRIANGLE = 5 from the book + torn page, but 22591 doesn't seem to work.

Help?

I'm not sure what I love better, the dancing orange people or the dancing plant man.

Bit stuck though,

I've got

a cup, a t-shirt with a code on the back, a device that requires a code and a screwdriver.

I've used

a stocking on the schoolboy - face smush! - to get the screwdriver, and a coin on the hint machine - what a disappointment that was.

I'm guessing the next move involves the screwdriver or the cup but no idea where to use them :(

@mudeth:

Maybe the first number is 8? The torn page stub in the blue book says 8 for me, followed by the edge of a black box, so I've been assuming 8 was the first number - although I haven't found the page itself yet, so I'm fumbling in the dark here! Mind if I ask where you got it from?

same here. Although then after I opened the door I went and pottered around the house again without going through it. Now it appears to be locked again, only the key is greyed out and I can't seem to find anything else to interact with. Hmm.

I can't figured out the code to the box

I have the note

8 square triangle
- 12
----------
813

So that means square = 2 and triangle = 5

and the code

from the t-shirt. Square, Square, Triangle, 9, 1

So that means the code should be

22591

But it doesn't do anything when I put in the code and hit the button.

@Zero-K About the code to the box:

I suspect the intention is that the 8 in a square be read as standing in for the first black square, rather than the black squares themselves being assigned a specific value. Needlessly ambiguous, I think - having the shirt code be clear square, black square, triangle etc. would have been clearer. Or maybe not having that 8 there at all - it doesn't actually help in solving the puzzle.

Also, I found the second ending thanks to mudeth and Zero-K, anyone have any luck on the third?

Being led into traps by pandas makes God cry. And there I was thinking God wasn't going to make a cameo in this game.

One big complaint about this game: that code box.

It made no sense for the code to be 82591. The code on the shirt started with two black squares, and we found out the black square is 2, so the code should have been 22591. If the square with the 8 in it had been black, it would have made sense. But the 8 was in a white square, and I assumed it had nothing to do with the code on the shirt, since there were no white squares there.

That just ruined the game for me. A pity, because I really enjoyed the rest of the game.

I just played the game six times trying to get the secret 3rd ending, and every time I try

there is simply no "panel" by God's head even though I had the coin.

I had to look around on a different forum to figure out why:

You must not use the key in the brown door before you click the green door, and then you will get the "best" ending with happy God!

Just a little clarification!
