Layers of Fear clock puzzle solution
Halfway in Act 2 (The Hunt) you reach a mechanical laboratory. In front of you you can see three mannequins standing at some switches. At your right is another at a clock. First go left through the door until you reach a ladder. Climb down the ladder and face the first puzzle. The puzzle is pretty easy to solve.
When the first puzzle is solved, go back to the lab where the three mannequins are and the clock. As soon as you enter the room and go to the clock, the mannequin falls dead in front of it. To solve this puzzle, you must move your hand to the required numbers to reach the number indicated in the left bar. Pay attention that every number you add doesn’t make the total go over the required number, otherwise you will have a mistake and you need to start over by exiting the game and hitting continue.
Here you can see what is required for each number:
- 0 > 8: 8
- 12 > 38: 10 + 9 + 7
- 24 > 70: 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 1
