Font Challenges (and also a Tova thing) Help
« on: August 23, 2014, 02:09:44 »
First, does anyone have any tips on the route for the two font challenges? With the one as Mi, for example, I've tried a variety of routes but the best one I can find would involve pulling off a stunt like in the RPG waterfall. Is that really it, or am I just missing something?

Second, there was a list of secrets on this forum that mentioned using the Laserdisc with Tova's invisible artifact. What's that about?

I've only checked it in the game script, but apparently you have a different dialog with Laserdisc (one of the Bell door guardians) if you've done Tova's quest: you have to give away 5 artifacts, but one of them is the invisible one.

Oh! Haha, I did that already then. That really only leaves the font challenges for my to do, which are both kicking my butt.

I printed out a map of the level and crossed off paths that were impossible. Eventually I narrowed these challenges down to the correct paths. Neither challenge requires you to do anything difficult other than finding the correct path. Finding these paths yourself is the true reward. Papyrus is especially satisfying to figure out.

So you do NOT have to make a jump like the secret one in RPG?

That is what I needed to know. Thanks.

Huh. I thought I'd already seen all the secret stuff in the game, but I have no idea what the "font challenges" are. Can someone explain?

In the menu area, there's a secret passage on the left wall of the "More Stuff" room. It leads to the Papyrus and Comic Sans challenges.

^ Note that those challenges were added in the Infinity Hype Update, so check your KU version in case you don't find the secret passage.

Anyone have any hints on the Papyrus challenge? I've spent at least 5 hours on it with no success.
