New Game+ Question (spoilers inside)

#1 Edited by Kosikutioner (36 posts) -

So I'm in the New Game +. I have the glasses, can look around.

On the Bombcast they talked a lot about revelatory moments. I imagine it's solving the alphabet and number system? Right from the start of the game I wondered about that. Without just linking to a list of those solved... How do I go about solving those?

There are school rooms and the like, are they what I need to sit down and scribble stuff down in a notepad to figure this all out? I'm nervous to do too much searching, I'd like to do this as much as I can myself, but I kinda feel like I need a shove in the right direction.

There is a section of the game where, if you are observant, you can figure out the entire alphabet. It's not in the school rooms, it's outside, and if you catch on to the little clue in the environment you can start decoding the language almost immediately. When I figured it out I felt like the smartest man alive, it's a good feeling so I won't help you too much!

@Parsnipzilla: It kinda sucked for me. I recognized it, but I didn't make any sort of connection at all.

@Parsnipzilla Thanks. I had totally seen that earlier and laughed they had done that without clueing in.

Now I just need to figure out the numbers and Tetris pieces...

@Kosikutioner: Theres a specific room with the tetris pieces with a purple monolith that lights up with different patterns that you can use to figure out the tetris pieces. One of the classrooms I believe helps you with the numbers.

I actually have a question as to what the amazing twist is? A lot of reviews talk about a huge twist in the end - is it the glasses or..did I miss something?

@Humanity: Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're referring to the glasses.

*Spoilers*

Adding a new perspective to see from and the realization that all of those things were there all along is pretty crazy.

I actually have a question about NG+ too, sort of unrelated but since the topic is called NG+ question I may as well ask. What happens if you go in the stargate in NG+? I accidentally went into the stargate room and I can't exit through the door (glitch?). If I go through the stargate will I just see the ending again then start another NG+?

You don't need new game + to have the revelatory moment. You need new game + to solve a bunch of bullshit puzzles impossible otherwise.

Yes. I accidentally did the same thing. The 32-cube door is basically the end of the game. You'll have to climb to the top, watch the ending again and start a new NG+.

Haha, I did that too. After watching that ending twice, I feel like I'm tripping balls.

@mortface: Wait until you watch the final ending after getting all 64 cubes.

Put me down as another person who accidentally did this.

@LongMasterWolf: I don't think I'm clever enough to reach that point.

I didn't do it on accident, I did it on purpose. I was like hmm wonder what happens when I do that again.

I did this too, accidentally. But instead of watching it again, I quit out and selected "start new game(not +)" from the main menu, and accidentally my whole game D=

Lost all my cubes I'd gotten so far... I got to keep the glasses effect at least...

@mortface: You can do it, if you need some help look at the Fez guide.

@Parsnipzilla: You're better person then me. I looked at that for minutes and could not figure it out. I never heard of that phrase so it didn't occur to me that it would solve it.
