  • 17:13 There's also another reason for this to happen! Even when you're not counsciously thinking about something, your subconscious is constantly trying to thank about and solve stuff. Especially when you're asleep! Albert Einstein mentioned that he often found solutions to equations and stuff in the morning, after waking up; his mind did the work for him while he was asleep. Ain't the brain beautiful?

  • One of my recommended videos on FIstartäs homepage was a 2 second video of a RL teacup chihuahua opening its mouth with a voice over of Wario going WAAAH. I said Not Interested, and one of the selectable reasons listed as to why I am not interested was that I am not interested in videos related to this one. ......Seriously FIstart, HOW THE HOLY FUCK IS THIS VIDEO RELATED TO THAT STUPID 2 SECOND MEME CRAP?!?!?!?!

  • I'm pretty sure there should be only 1 solution for each island that takes care of all options even for special access areas. When you went to hug the snowman near the beginning of the game, it looked like you could have rafted over from the left side instead of resetting the islands. Take a look! ;)

  • i think one big reason people think they're better at puzzle games when watching compared to playing is that when the person who's playing gets stuck, they will often come up with the solution first. But they don't consider the many times when the person playing found a solution much quicker than they would have.

  • My theory for the playing versus watching problem is tunnel vision. Backseat Gaming is something that exists not only in puzzle games. Say, for example, that you play a shooter and enter a room with a pickup in one corner. You, the player, concentrate on killing all enemies in the room. The watcher however doesn't have this tunnel vision, as he is only watching another person doing something so he has to concentrate less on that and has time to look around more. Therefore it is more likely for the watcher to notice the pickup in the corner of the room (and write in the stream chat, that you missed something and how could you, it was so obvious that it was there)

  • If you really want to 100% unaided, some of the last puzzles require much greater vision than a single island. I suggest printing out screenshots of the expanded map to the scale of connected island chains, and then marking up the screenshots for places you can make rafts, the location of bigger trees, and where you can roll logs over bridges, by resetting each connected island in turn. You only have to do this basic legwork once that way, and the marked-up screenshots expand your vision for the more difficult puzzles. Later, you will have to do more work to find extra configurations of islands with perhaps just one log altered, and you can still exit over a bridge or raft and get to a teleport, and combine these for several connected islands to do some crazy secret stuff with unexpected rafting. Remember, rafts can be stopped by a log in the water, and pushed off at 90 degrees with another log -- and even more crazy options exist. It's going to be a lot easier to work out the more difficult puzzles with expanded vision, and you'll spend less time resetting islands you already know probably don't help you if you've done the legwork once.

  • Another thing about watching footage: you're brain isn't busy solving the puzzle, so it's free to observe and explore other things while someone else solves the problem. This may lead you to a similar solution, but it could also lead you to explore alternative moves.

    Francisco SchererFrancisco Scherer3 kuukautta sitten
  • Another reason it is "easier" when watching is because we can just be trying to think of things that you are not doing, or looking in places you aren't looking, and then when you solve something we haven't even looked at we still take credit for it("I woulda figured that out"). Basically we only have to search a subset of options because you're handling the rest, so if you're going the wrong path it actually makes it MORE likely we will find the solution, and yet to us it feels like we did something so hard even you couldn't do it.... thats my theory anyway
