Room Fake

Room Fake is just one of those games that makes me smile: a good-looking, nicely thought out room escape game with difficult but not confounding puzzles, a save feature(!) and not too much text to exacerbate the language barrier. It is also somewhat reminiscent of Japanese developer Neutral's offerings with its clean, pre-rendered 3D model surroundings.

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH:

  1. Click on the dresser, click underneath it, and get the battery.

  2. Back out, turn right, get the number 4 tile and the wadded paper out of the garbage can.

  3. Examine and uncrumple the wad of paper.

  4. Back up so you're looking AT the can, click on it to lift it, and click it again near the base to find the color for the letter O.

  5. On the desk, near the left side of the plant, will be a green 3 cylinder. Get that.

  6. Click on the bed, turn back the blanket, and get the number 6 tile from the edge of the blanket. At the bottom of the bed is a red 3 cylinder, get that as well.

  7. Back out, turn right again. Between the bed and the cabinet on the floor is the number 7 tile.

  8. The top drawer of the green cabinet has a clue but nothing to get. The middle drawer has a safe that we don't have the combination for yet. The bottom is locked. Open the cabinet at the top and get the battery from the right side of the second shelf, and the scrap of paper from the top shelf. That should tell you the color of the letter C.

  9. Turn right again, open the curtains. On the curtain rod will be a blue 3 cylinder.

  10. Next to the curtains is a diagram for the magic sqare. Click the bottom corner: Taped to the back is a scrap of paper that has the safe code (196 - it's shown upside down).

  11. Go back to the green cabinet - put the combination in the safe, and get the number 7 tile and the screwdriver. Examine the screwdriver and pull the cord to extend the bit.

  12. Turn right, click the wall plate, and use the screwdriver to remove the cover. Take the screws.

  13. Turn right again, and look at the SIDE of the small wooden dresser. Unscrew the screws (and take them!), return to the front, and open the stuck bottom drawer. Take the battery charger and the red 3 cylinder.

  14. Examine the battery charger and put the batteries in it, then go back to the left to the outlet. Plug the charger in, click away, click back, and take the charger and charged batteries. (That was fast!)

  15. Turn right again, click on the little dog statue, and put the batteries in the holders. Press the button on the front to turn its head and get the number 9 tile.

  16. On the desk is a magic square puzzle - put the tiles in so the grid becomes:
    8 3 4
    1 5 9
    6 7 2

    and press the button. This will give you the color of the K.

  17. When you back up, the picture will have fallen. If you turn left, two circles of light on the side of the dresser will give you a time, and the controls behind the painting are to set the clock. Set the short hand to 5 and the long hand to 6 (30 minutes).

  18. When you turn left again, there is a small box extended under the clock. Click it and get the silver key and the blue 2 cylinder.

  19. The silver key opens the bottom drawer of the green dresser. Open it and get the pink tissue and the small red sword.

  20. On top of the small wooden dresser is a vase - knock it over and use the pink tissue to absorb it. Turn left, open the curtains, and clean the window off with the tissue. This will show you the color of the L (on the right), and a secret about the door (on the left).

  21. Return to the dog statue, put the red sword in its neck slot (as marked) to get a red 1 cylinder. Pull the string left over to get the gold key.

  22. Turn to the door, click on the bottom left corner to zoom in, and again to take off the panel. Plug the door into the wall outlet. Get the blue 3 cylinder.

  23. The gold key opens the safe behind the paper to the right of the window. Open it, and get the doorknob, and the green 2 cylinder.

  24. Click the door, use the doorknob on it, and the screws to secure it. Pressing it will open a panel with the word "LOCK" above it.

  25. THE COLORS CHANGE, but the puzzle works like this: Any two colored cylinders of the same value will blend (blue and red become purple, red and green become yellow, blue and green become teal). If you kept note of the colors each letter should be there will only be one combination of the cylinders that will fit and make the right colors for each letter. Place the cylinders so the colors are right, and OPEN SESAME!
    Now you can exit through the cabinet, OR, find the REAL exit...

  26. Clicking the bottom right of the green cabinet should show you the side - get the hammer out from behind the drawer.

  27. Turn around, break open the vase to reveal the color of the letter A.

  28. To your right, the magic square on the desk can be clicked and turned over - that reveals the color of the backwards K.

  29. The back of the cover from the electrical panel will give you the color of the letter E.

  30. Believe it or not, with this, you have enough information to re-solve the puzzle for "FAKE". Go back to the door, and solve the puzzle again. FAKE will turn to TRUE, and there will be one gold cylinder now - a token with a dog on it. Take that.

  31. Return to the dog statue, detach the head, put the dog token in the neck slot, and reattach the head. He will open the TRUE exit for you.

The end!

Might as well take a crack at making another one of my narrative walkthroughs...

  • I don't know why people want to keep me confined. I can't go a week without getting trapped in some crazy room that I have to solve puzzles to escape from. Today was no exception.

  • The door didn't appear to be locked, but the doorknob was missing. I scanned the room and picked up what I could: a battery under the nightstand in the corner (I accidentally spilled the flowervase on top while getting it), a green shape from a potted plant, a number 4 and a crumpled-up sheet of paper from the trash can (always something in the trash can... must be a rule), another battery and a sheet of paper from the shelves of the cabinet's main compartment, a number 1 between the bed and the cabinet, a blue thing stuck under the curtain rod, a number 6 hidden under the bedspread (I also spotted and grabbed a red thing under the bed while I had the covers turned), and a scrap of paper taped to the underside of a poster next to the window.

  • After I got what I could, I got to work. The slip of paper from the poster seemed to read "961", but I turned it upside down so it fit with the scrap of paper from the cabinet (it was a perfect fit), and it read 196. A little lockbox in the cabinet's middle drawer required a three-digit code, and the number 196 opened it nicely. Inside I found a 7 and a tool that at first looked like a bizarre flashlight, but when I pulled on the strap I found that it was actually a funny screwdriver.
    I'd tried to open the nightstand's drawer before, but it wouldn't give even though it didn't seem to be locked. I found out why when I checked the side: two screws held it in place. I undid them with the screwdriver, and picked the screws up for future use (I'm eccentric like that, picking up everything that seems useful and sometimes things that don't). Now the drawer opened easily, and inside I recovered a red thing and a battery charger, which I naturally put the two batteries in.

  • Near the door, a white panel covered something, held on by two screws. I took the screwdriver to those as well, revealing an electrical outlet. After pocketing the screws (bringing the total to four), I plugged in the charger with the batteries inside. Strangely, it took less than a minute to charge (it must've been a high-voltage outlet). The batteries were full, so I took them out of the charger.

  • Next, the little dog statue on a shelf caught my eye. I put the charged batteries in, and when I turned it on, it turned its head and its eyes lit up. I recovered a 9 from the side of its head and noted the pattern it projected onto the side of the nightstand: 05:30. I also saw a small slot that looked like something belonged to it, like a toy sword...
    After that, I peeked at a little puzzle on the desk. It was one of those magic squares where you had to make every direction equal 15. I plugged in the numbers I had so that it read 834-159-672, then pressed the button. I was presented with a colored letter K, and heard something drop. Indeed, a painting that'd been on the wall fell off, revealing two dials.

  • The two dials matched the hands of the clock I'd seen on the wall. It read 3:00; I spun them until it read 5:30. Then, I looked at the clock, and by some miracle of mechanics a tray had popped out, presenting me with a blue thing and a key. The key fit into the bottom drawer of the cabinet, in which I found a red cloth and a toy sword. The former I dipped in the water from the flowervase and used to wipe off both panes of the window, revealing some sort of code.

  • The toy sword fit perfectly into a slot on the dog statue, and its head popped off. Inside I discovered another red thing and a key on a string. The key matched a safe under the poster by the window, and inside I found a doorknob and a green thing. Returning to the door, I attached the doorknob to the door with the help of the four screws. I also found a panel in the bottom of the door; a blue thing and a power cord greeted me, and I plugged the latter into the outlet.

  • The door wasn't a door. I pushed on the doorknob and was greeted with a puzzle: L-O-C-K. The L's color was revealed by the windowpane I'd cleaned, the O color was under the trashcan, the C was on the torn sheet of paper from the cabinet, and the colored K was from the magic square puzzle. I remembered the colors and matched them by inserting the red, blue, and green cylinders I'd picked up (I had eight by now). If two cylinders had the same number, their colors were mixed; if not, the higher number dominated. I mixed and matched them until I figured out the solution.

  • When I eventually got my result and pressed the rectangular button, I was treated with an "OPEN" display, and the cabinet opened up to reveal a passage. I was free.

  • ...But I didn't leave. I suspected that someone was trying to trick me, so I hesitated.

  • I peeked at the side of the cabinet, and found a hammer. I used it to break the flowervase, revealing an A.

  • Suspicious, I pressed the doorknob again, and found myself with another color puzzle: this one was F, A, backwards K, E. The F was the key I used to open the safe under the poster; the A was from the flowervase; the K was the color of the underside of the magic square puzzle; the E was on the underside of the panel that'd covered the electric outlet. Once I figured THAT out, I received a strange golden thing with a dog's face on it.

  • Of course this doodad went with the dog statue, which did something strange when I put it in and replaced the head over it. It drew out the sword and slashed the wall, revealing a second exit. This, I knew, was my TRUE way out.

  • It isn't every day I find not one, but two exits from a room I'm trapped in. I'm just that awesome.

The numbered buttons
The colored spot at the bottom of the trash can (blue in my game)
The colored letters everywhere (blue E from electricity, purple K from number puzzle (puzzle has red background, why?), C arrow green from a paper scrap)
I have a key on a ribbon, though I lack the doorknob

Ah yes. I played this game yesterday, and quite enjoyed it.
Big hint for those who eventually get a ways along:

Click to the lower right of the green cabinet.

What's that? There's nothing there? True, nothing...

Yet. There will be, later, when

you've won.

Or rather, when you think you've won. There are two endings...

OK this is how far I got:

First

turn right, click the waste basket,
get the number 4 and a piece of paper, with the tip how to get the screwdriver

Go out one step, click on the waste basket again, to look under it,
you'll find the letter O and under the basket the colour purple (note for later)

One step back again and look at the desk, hidden in the plant is a green 3

One step back again, on the bed, under the blankets there is the number 6

One step back, turn right, click left of the cabinet, get the number 1

One step back again and loot the cabinet,
on the upper board there's a piece of paper telling you which colour belongs to the letter C
(for me it was red, but it changes every time)
on the second board there is the first of two batteries
In the first drawer, there is a tip for later
In the second drawer there is a box with a numeral code, we'll come back later

Step back and turn right again,
behind the curtain the blue 3 is hidden (in the upper left corner),
on the right of the window there's a paper,
on the backside there is hidden the code for the box in the drawer of the cabinet (careful it's upside down)

go back to the cabinet and open the box,
you'll get the number 7
and the screwdriver
(to unfold it you'll have to look at it closely and click on the back like the tip on the paper told us)

turn back two times left, so that you'll face the wall with the clock,
click on the side of the small cabinet,
use the screwdriver to unscrew the screws, and take them

go back one step and click on the small cabinet,
NOW you can open the drawer,
you'll get the battery charger and a red 3,
under the small cabinet lies the second battery

go back to the door, on the right side there's a wall panel,
use the screwdriver to get the other two screws and you'll find the power outlet,
on the back of the panel you'll find the letter E in the colour .... (note for later)
push the batteries in the charger and the charger in the outlet
go out and in again and you've got charged batteries

Go back to the wall with the clock, click on the small statue of the cat,
put the batteries in the cat and push the button
You'll get the 9
On the side of the small drawer a time appears (5:30)

On the desk is a panel to put the numbers in,
you'll have to create a magical square
4 1 9 6 7 (so that the sum is 15 in every column and row)
push the button and get the letter K in a colour (note the colour for later)

Step back and you'll see that the picture has fallen down
The green turning knob represents the minutes
the purple knob represents the hours (like in the clock on the wall)
turn the knobs to 5:30

Under the clock a secret panel has opened,
you'll get a key and a blue 2

Use the key on the last drawer of the big wardrobe
You'll get a red letter opener
and a cloth

The red letter opener opens a secret compartment in the cat statue
click two times to get
a red 1
a key

Go to the small cabinet and push the vase over
wet the cloth in the water (like the second drawer tip told you)

Go to the window and use the wet cloth
the left side tells you about a secret panel in the door
the right side tells you the colour of the letter L

Use the key on the hidden lock behind the paper
Get the doorknob
get a green 3

Open the secret compartment of the door
(access from the screen with the power outlet)
Get a blue 3
put the cable in the power outlet

Put the door knob on the door
use the screws to fasten it
click the door knob and find the
L-O-C-K

And there I am

I tried the numbers to mix the 'right' colours for the letters, but it doesn't seem to work....

gws,
I myself think there mught be a third exit, because

when you solve the "FAKE" color puzzle to get the golden doghead thingy there's TRUE written up and I suspect that might be for the third color puzzle.

But, you see, it's only a suspicion...

Might as well take a crack at making another one of my narrative walkthroughs...

  • I don't know why people want to keep me confined. I can't go a week without getting trapped in some crazy room that I have to solve puzzles to escape from. Today was no exception.

  • The door didn't appear to be locked, but the doorknob was missing. I scanned the room and picked up what I could: a battery under the nightstand in the corner (I accidentally spilled the flowervase on top while getting it), a green shape from a potted plant, a number 4 and a crumpled-up sheet of paper from the trash can (always something in the trash can... must be a rule), another battery and a sheet of paper from the shelves of the cabinet's main compartment, a number 1 between the bed and the cabinet, a blue thing stuck under the curtain rod, a number 6 hidden under the bedspread (I also spotted and grabbed a red thing under the bed while I had the covers turned), and a scrap of paper taped to the underside of a poster next to the window.

  • After I got what I could, I got to work. The slip of paper from the poster seemed to read "961", but I turned it upside down so it fit with the scrap of paper from the cabinet (it was a perfect fit), and it read 196. A little lockbox in the cabinet's middle drawer required a three-digit code, and the number 196 opened it nicely. Inside I found a 7 and a tool that at first looked like a bizarre flashlight, but when I pulled on the strap I found that it was actually a funny screwdriver.
    I'd tried to open the nightstand's drawer before, but it wouldn't give even though it didn't seem to be locked. I found out why when I checked the side: two screws held it in place. I undid them with the screwdriver, and picked the screws up for future use (I'm eccentric like that, picking up everything that seems useful and sometimes things that don't). Now the drawer opened easily, and inside I recovered a red thing and a battery charger, which I naturally put the two batteries in.

  • Near the door, a white panel covered something, held on by two screws. I took the screwdriver to those as well, revealing an electrical outlet. After pocketing the screws (bringing the total to four), I plugged in the charger with the batteries inside. Strangely, it took less than a minute to charge (it must've been a high-voltage outlet). The batteries were full, so I took them out of the charger.

  • Next, the little dog statue on a shelf caught my eye. I put the charged batteries in, and when I turned it on, it turned its head and its eyes lit up. I recovered a 9 from the side of its head and noted the pattern it projected onto the side of the nightstand: 05:30. I also saw a small slot that looked like something belonged to it, like a toy sword...
    After that, I peeked at a little puzzle on the desk. It was one of those magic squares where you had to make every direction equal 15. I plugged in the numbers I had so that it read 834-159-672, then pressed the button. I was presented with a colored letter K, and heard something drop. Indeed, a painting that'd been on the wall fell off, revealing two dials.

  • The two dials matched the hands of the clock I'd seen on the wall. It read 3:00; I spun them until it read 5:30. Then, I looked at the clock, and by some miracle of mechanics a tray had popped out, presenting me with a blue thing and a key. The key fit into the bottom drawer of the cabinet, in which I found a red cloth and a toy sword. The former I dipped in the water from the flowervase and used to wipe off both panes of the window, revealing some sort of code.

  • The toy sword fit perfectly into a slot on the dog statue, and its head popped off. Inside I discovered another red thing and a key on a string. The key matched a safe under the poster by the window, and inside I found a doorknob and a green thing. Returning to the door, I attached the doorknob to the door with the help of the four screws. I also found a panel in the bottom of the door; a blue thing and a power cord greeted me, and I plugged the latter into the outlet.

  • The door wasn't a door. I pushed on the doorknob and was greeted with a puzzle: L-O-C-K. The L's color was revealed by the windowpane I'd cleaned, the O color was under the trashcan, the C was on the torn sheet of paper from the cabinet, and the colored K was from the magic square puzzle. I remembered the colors and matched them by inserting the red, blue, and green cylinders I'd picked up (I had eight by now). If two cylinders had the same number, their colors were mixed; if not, the higher number dominated. I mixed and matched them until I figured out the solution.

  • When I eventually got my result and pressed the rectangular button, I was treated with an "OPEN" display, and the cabinet opened up to reveal a passage. I was free.

  • ...But I didn't leave. I suspected that someone was trying to trick me, so I hesitated.

  • I peeked at the side of the cabinet, and found a hammer. I used it to break the flowervase, revealing an A.

  • Suspicious, I pressed the doorknob again, and found myself with another color puzzle: this one was F, A, backwards K, E. The F was the key I used to open the safe under the poster; the A was from the flowervase; the K was the color of the underside of the magic square puzzle; the E was on the underside of the panel that'd covered the electric outlet. Once I figured THAT out, I received a strange golden thing with a dog's face on it.

  • Of course this doodad went with the dog statue, which did something strange when I put it in and replaced the head over it. It drew out the sword and slashed the wall, revealing a second exit. This, I knew, was my TRUE way out.

  • It isn't every day I find not one, but two exits from a room I'm trapped in. I'm just that awesome.

The door code puzzle isn't broken; it's just trickier than it appears at first.

You have to mix and match the colors to get the right colors for each letter. There may be more than one way to get the right colors, but only one way will is right.

Remember:

Two colors with the same number will mix to form a new color, but if two colors have different numbers, the color will that of the largest number.

OK, I finally figured out why I can't sign into jayisgames anymore. It's because now there are two different types of accounts, the old Typekey accounts and the new Jayisgames accounts. My account was a TypeKey account, but the login page has **silently** changed to default to the new Jayisgames account. The only hint is that the word "JayisGames" above "TypeKey" in the login page. It looks like a description to me ie, this TypeKey is for JayisGames.

The result is that my login fails for no apparent reason. I try to recover my password, but that also doesn't work. I look up my old password - and that doesn't work.

More frustrating that an escape the room game!

I only ever created a TypeKey identity for JayisGames, so the text on the the "leave a comment" comment didn't really make sense to me. Also, "Site registrations are now implemented(!)" obviously has some internal meaning, but it means nothing to me. It is not written from a user's point of view.

Jay, your users deserve better. I am really disappointed about the frustration I've been put through. Having the rug pulled out from under my feet when, when I just want to contribute to the site, actually feels like some lack of respect for users.

A suggestion is two log-in links:

first: "newer account login" defaults to a JayisGames account;

second: "older account login" defaults to a TypeKey account

The idea is just to give people a chance. You can still suggest they switch - or even simply block access to all TypeKey accounts, and require a new account to be created!! It seems harsh, but if you said it clearly, it would be more respectful than what you're actually done.

Sorry Yow, there is nothing underhanded being done here, I assure you.

Where previously we had only TypeKey registrations, which is a 3rd-party authentication service, now we offer site registrations in addition to TypeKey.

When you sign in, you are now given a choice which account type you wish to sign in with: 1) Casual Gameplay (JIG), or 2) TypeKey.

The reason why TypeKey is 2nd is because we want you to use a Casual Gameplay account since we can provide a better user experience with it.

We mention that in RED above every comment box.

Thanks for the feedback, though. Apparently it's not as obvious for everyone as I thought it was. Sorry for any inconvenience you have experienced.

Regarding the narrative walkthroughs, why assume it's the same person every time? Besides, different points of view will make each one more unique as well as suggest that vaguely sinister forces are at work. Don't make me turn this into an official bandwagon on which to jump!

Regarding the game, that was the best one-room game I've seen in a while. My only problems came from frantically clicking on everything in the false assumption that there was a pixel hunt or hidden area in every screen, and confusion over which K *er-hrm* to use first.

Jay, you have restated what I wrote.

You must understand that previously, no choice was available on the login page. Therefore, I did not expect a choice, and consequently neither sought nor found one. When the login failed after attempting several different username and password combinations, I inspected the page more closely, and noticed the "Jayisgames" text. Unfortunately, it appeared, to me, to not be a choice, but a hierarchical heading (viz: "jayisgames" indicating that this was the TypeKey for jayisgames). It is a well-known tendency of human perception to interpret words and symbols in terms of what the subject is expecting. I am certain you are aware of this propensity.

Your own words are a clear expression of the situation, which, if communicated to the audience, would clarify matters:

"When you sign in, you are now given a choice which account type you wish to sign in with: 1) Casual Gameplay (JIG), or 2) TypeKey."

I am sorry if my first comment seemed angry or aggressive. Over a period of months, I had tried several times to login. I would attempt to overcome it in various ways, then abandon it, thinking I had mistyped or forgotten my password. It was frustrating.

However, even if so, it does not justify your condescending attitude, of capitalizing "red" in uppercase, and putting "choice" in italics and stating "Apparently it's not as obvious for everyone as I thought it was". I do not appreciate it; it says something of you, not me. Exasperation in communication is often a sign of not writing for the user, and instead "speaking louder" to overcome the inadequacy the speaker perceives in the listener - but which generally is not present.

Because I appreciate the website and forum you have created, I have taken pains to convey the situation to you; information which is of benefit to you, and not to me. However, I may be mistaken. Perhaps no one else left your website in frustration because of this, and so my information is worthless to you. In which case, I truly am sorry for wasting your time.

Open letter to game developers:

Roughly 10% of males are color-blind, and games with color puzzles SO FRUSTRATING for that segment of your audience! I worked my way through this entire game until I got to the "LOCK" puzzle, then threw in the towel because I have no idea what any of the colors are. (For example, the "L" on the window pane could be blue, or green, or purple, or maybe some other color to a color-blind person.)

I could just randomly try all the different combinations... but what is the challenge in that? This was an otherwise cool game, but too many games on this and other sites use color in a way that alienates a significant portion of gamers. Poo-poo on you. :(

Anyway, since this is the first time, there are probably various improvements or missing steps. Please let us know. After ignoring the missing steps (jk) in addition to this "Normal end" there is one more "True end," so please try that one to. Push the button below to return to the previous scene.

Second ending:

Test subject F-02: passed.
Contrary to prediction. Results of testing suggested it would stop at "Normal"... by no means passing "True."
Of course, we absolutely did not predict such obstinacy.
...well, it's outstanding that this individual continued to the second screening, isn't it?
Of course. Beyond passing "True" there is no reason to escape. Such candidates are not common, but it is better that they are excellent...
Well, hereafter the subject is free.
Understood

Oops! I somehow missed a line in the translation.

Second ending (missing line from above):
Of course. Beyond passing "True" there is no reason to escape. Such candidates are not common, but it is better that they are excellent.
F-02? Though it's slightly behind F-01, prospects seem entirely adequate. From now on things should be considerably more enjoyable.

I too have had to completely abandon games because of color blindness! It is WAY frustrating, and often if the shades were more primary instead of pastel or metallic or whatever, I would probably be able to suss it out.
How important is it to you non color blind people to have the color angle in games? Does it add a lot? Would you miss it if it were left out? To me it's just a pain in the rods and cones!

OK this is really beginning to annoy me:

I cannot get the colors on the door to work properly. From the comments i have read however, the colours remain the same, only how they are mapped to the letters changes. Can someone please post their combinations according to colour? Eg red needs a red 3 and a red 1, etc.?

Thanks

More on the color-blindness issue:

It turns out that the colors in this game didn't really hit me in my color-blindness zone. But after putting in what I thought were the right colors -- and not getting any result -- I had no way of knowing whether the problem was that I wasn't seeing the colors correctly or that I hadn't come up with the right solution.

There was a game on here a while ago (from one of the competitions I think), that had an option to turn a color puzzle into a gray-scale puzzle (I think the author introduced that solution after suggestions from color-blind solvers). I remember enjoying the puzzle and the grayscale option let me concentrate on solving it without having to play "guess what color this is."

So many escape-the-room games are pre-rendered in a 3D modelling program. I hope it's only a matter of time before an escape-the-room game really takes advantage of 3d space, allowing the player to move around freely without playing hunt-the-pixel when we just want to look under the bed.

For those of you requesting the placement of the round colored pieces to open the door code.....
I have seen the color combinations to make purple, yellow and teal are in the walkthru's posted. The difference between teal and blue are very subtle, especially on my machine when you wipe off the window with the damp cloth to get the teal colored "L", so be sure to use correct blue of the two choices. I did NOT see it posted anywhere that you need to use all eight of the round colored button (but you do!) If the "O" is red, just putting one red button under it will not unlock the code. You either need to put a second red button under it or a different colored button of a lesser number so the "O" will stay red. Can't post the actual solution because the colors of the letters seem to be different each time you play the game. But the solution is possible every time. You just need to find all eight of the colored buttons and use them all in your solution.

I am also colorblind. For this game, I mainly had trouble with the green pegs, and I also wondered at first if one of the blue pegs was actually purple. But I was still able to figure out what they were supposed to be and blend (after some trial and error, of course). I am sure that some other types of colorblindness are much worse than mine (although the green/red type is by far the most common).

The only game that I have ever seen have an option for colorblindness is Peggle. I cannot tell you how excited I was to see that as an option! It helps me a lot.

Considering that about 8% of guys have this problem, game developers would do well to add colorblindness options to games where color is essential to gameplay. Not that we really expect it, but it generates a great appreciation and loyalty when someone treats it as a legitimate problem.

To all the people having problems with the "FAKE" color puzzle:

observe that the "K" is backwards; this means that its color is on the REVERSE of the number puzzle pad - don't know if it helps, but it is a little tricky.

The correct code for there is still LOCK not fake the sequence goes like these:

1) Cyan for "L" in the window
2) Purple for "O" the color is underneath the trash can you may need to double click it to see
3) Red for "C" according to the paper from the green cabinet
4) Green for "K" actually obvious on the box with number

Insert the color in order

for color cyan:
Green 3 and Blue 3

for color purple:
Blue 3 and Red 3

for color Red:
Red 3 and Blue 2

for color green:
Green 2 and Red 1

@ecko:

LOCK is the code for the first, wrong, exit. after you insert that one, you need to insert the F-A-reverse K-E code, to unlock the second exit.
also, color code changes everytime. the only letter which i found to be always the same are the "F" (quite obvious the reason for this) and the reversed k (if i'm not remembering wrong).

Possible third ending:

I attempted entering both, but nothing happened as far as I could tell with a bit more searching.

Regarding one of the letters...

Even though it's said that the letter "F" doesn't change colors and you don't need to know its color to complete the puzzle, it should be noted that they do give you a clue as to what color it is...look for all things yellow, and you'll see it!

okay, i understand a bit of japanese, but not a lot..from what i can make out, the ending says:

it's a conversation between two people i think..white and blue font are two different people..
white font: F-02 has passed
blue font: ????. the test of skill, to pass the "normal" escape, is not having a "true" pass. -i think-
: -no clue what's being said here-
WF: then, this second test was fun, was it not?
BF: irrelevant. there is no reason for someone to find the "True" pass. please improve on this.
:...F-02 huh. F-01 ??? fast. it was very ???- insightful, maybe?- now it's starting to get fun.

There's a basic bug in this game. Red, green and blue can only provide SIX different colors
(R,G,B,CYAN,YELLOW,PURPLE). However, the words LOCK and OPEN have SEVEN different letters. So, either some letters have the same color, or one letter is black (which means no peg is used).
This means there's too much guesswork to be interesting.

This was super annoying. I knew the F was yellow, but I didn't know how to make it. It turns out that to make yellow, you have to combine red and green. That's a bit of a stretch, since that's not really the way colors work. I spent forever trying to figure it out.

Actually it's perfectly correct, if you're working with RGB colours.
You are thinking CMYK, where yellow is a base colour in itself.
In RGB you'll have to make the yellow from green and red.

What are the color and number on each of your 8 buttons? And what colors are you trying to match in Fake? It changes each time, so I need to know what colors you have and what you are trying to match. Also, did you flip over the magic number keypad to see the color for the reverse "K"?

it's like this:

F=color of Key (Yellow)
A=Blue (inside vase)
K=Red (back of puzzle)
E=light Blue (behind protective thing for the plug

If i get Yellow,Blue and Red,the remaining ones will not be light blue. If i do Blue,Red,and Light Blue,the remaining will not be yellow.

see what i mean? it's like i can do it for LOCK because i know the combos for those,and unlock it every time,but because Yellow is always the color i have to do,it seems to unbalance for FAKE. very strange

I'm hoping you have this combo of buttons:

Use a 3 red and a 3 green to make the yellow F. Use a 3 blue and a 3 blue to make the blue A. Use a 3 red and a 1 red to make the red K. Use a 2 blue and a 2 green to make the light blue E. If you have those exact buttons then it will work. Click the button and it will change to "true and you will see a little gold cylinder. Take the cylinder and put it in the mechanical dot. Then you will get the other ending. If you don't have this combination of numbers and colors, let me know which ones you do have and I'll help you figure it out.

Yellow i have Red 3 & Green 3
Blue i have Green 2 and Blue 3
Red i have Red 3 and Blue 2

which leaves Blue 3 and Red 1, these add up to Blue and not light blue.

The part of the problem i see with the colors walkthrough is some say "Blue" and not "Blue 1 or Blue 2,etc" because of this,if i add anything with blue,that just throws me off in the first place. if it tells me Blue 2 or Red 1 etc on everything,this might work easier. Anyway,i hope this helps.

Here's your combination:

Yellow - 3 red, 3 green. Blue - 3 blue, 3 blue. Red - 3 red, 1 red. Light Blue - 2 blue, 2 green. Let me know if this works for you.

Basically how it works is this: if each color has the same value (say 3 or 2) then they combine to a new color. If one color has a greater value than the other, then the one with the greater value dominates.
