    I am trying to get back to earlier parts of the game but I seem to be trapped in the bottom left section of the map. I took some screen shots of where I am because it says there is a door right in front of me but I can't find it. Am I just a complete moron? Is there really a door here that I am not seeing? Check out these pics:
     
    Picture 1 - The character is facing the wall where a door should be according to the map.
     

     
     


    Picture 2 - Map picture (Zoomed out)
     
     
     


    Picture 3 - Map picture (Zoomed in)
     
     
     


    Am I just not allowed to go back right now? This is the only way I can see to get back to the earlier parts of the game. Or am I just a complete moron?

    Sorry, try right-clicking and open in a new tab. I don't know why they aren't working.

    Did you try to use the flashlight?  Any colored objects on the ceiling, wall, or floor?  If so, that's likely how you need to get through.

    It looks like there's a vent on the top right corner.  Did you try shining your flashlight at it to see if you could escape through it?

    @SpaceInsomniac:@AsianSwagger:  Yes I used the flashlight and that thing that looks like a vent doesn't light up and I have tried getting through. I think I will just backtrack through every area that I can still get to and hopefully I will find my way. I guess this is what I get for not using the Blue Line and just exploring randomly.

    That's a one-way vent. Go around to the other side, there'll be  a way to get to the top of the room you're looking for, although I forget what items you need to get up there. Once you're done, you can drop down into the room you're currently in via the one-way vent.

    Unrelated question, when you start the game over, do you keep the items you collected? Or do you just keep your level?

    just the level apparently... :(   LOOONG!! 
     
    about the question - i had the same issue... you can basically get back to that area, you just have to look at the map and go the long way round!

    That vent is a one way vent.  There's another way around.
