Can you help me out by telling me where "here" is? Lol. Been awhile since I played, but more than willing to try to help.

I remember the floating islands when we first see Nix's home planet. Is it the scene with the weird little blue critter in the tree, the water, etc.? Where we look in the water and see ourselves as someone else?

Are you looking for what to do with the levitating "table" with the 3 receptacles? If so, highlight to read...spoiler...

The receptacles/bowls have symbols for water, earth, and fire. You have to find those elements and put them in the corresponding bowls. One thing that threw me for a minute was that we use the seashell TWICE.

If that doesn't get you going, let me know, and I'll be more specific.

OR...are you somewhere else?

there are these hexagonal items that are linked together and look sort like a bee's wax the yellow or green dots in the center. If you combine 2 of the same color, they add up (but can't be more than 5)...different color, they subtract. But I can't figure out what I'm supposed be doing...what the goal is. sorry I didn't respond earlier. I was at work...

Sorry I took so long. Had a monster headache today.

I imagine you have moved on by now. Anyway, you have to move to the island by means of the hexagons.

Each one has a number of dots on it. The key is to move from space to space by adding/subtracting the number of dots. The total of dots can never add up to more than 5. The solution is random, so it will be different every time you attempt it.

It is actually easier than it LOOKS. You don't have to keep the number in your head. The tile you're on will have the current number. Sometimes it will be blank, which is 0. I found my way by just moving forward and trying. After a couple of mistakes, I could see where I was going wrong.

Again, apologies for not getting back sooner. Hope this helps.
