The Stacks Unlock Secret

Since the egg has been found, here is the secret to unlocking the entire game:

The first clue is a variant on the secret in the book. Cut out letters, but the side of the cut out matters. Left cut-outs = maggot
Right cut-outs = brain

This is meant to lead you to the maggot brain album. There is a second clue there:

And finally do this to reach the secret area:

That gets you the copper key, but there is a hidden secret with the secret room:

This gives you everything. keys and cubes.

The easter egg is at the end of the final board. You will have to do some special jumping to reach it.

Here is a clue: forward, forward, up, up, double up & forward.

I really don't want to spoil the ending for you, so go get that egg. I promise you it will be worth it.

The secret full-unlock will be hidden somewhere else in the final game so this trick will only work in this version.


  1. i played this for a couple of hours without beating. thanks for this! =D

    1. You're welcome. It was just me play testing the game and it was just too hard. The reddit community has provided some awesome feedback/comments to help me figure out what needs fixed.

  2. Such an amazing game, thanks for this! I was kind of hoping Wade's hideout would be amongst the stacks somewhere. Do you think you'd put it in the final game? It'd be so cool to find it and see all this random retro 80s memorabilia in it or something, along with his OASIS and lawnchair!

    1. I'll put it on my list. That hideout is actually very small: 4 feet wide, 4 feet high & nine feet long. I have one spot reserved in the end area on the left. That could be a pile of cars maze. That would take months to do properly though...
