I have to scribble this down before they wipe my memory again.
I figured out how some of the locks in this room work. At least, I think I have the basics worked out. The door is locked by some kind of mechanism that must receive a charge from the various tubes and pipes that run along the wall.
But the tubes and pipes are cold now. If I could find some sort of power source to provide them with energy, I might be able to activate them long enough to open the gate and get out of this nightmare.
I hear them returning. I'm hiding this up here. Maybe if I'm stuck back in this room I'll stumble upon it again and unlock more of this damned puzzle.
At least I can hope, right?
