Tell Me Why – How To Solve The Extra Barn Attic Puzzles

While you’re exploring the attic in the final chapter of Tell Me Why you will notice a series of puzzles that you aren’t required to solve before moving on to the game’s conclusion. While you could focus only on the mandatory puzzles and reach a satisfying conclusion to the game, these extra barn attic puzzles will give you a more fleshed out understanding about the twins’ mother and her life. Considering the entire purpose of the game, you’ll want to know how to solve these optional riddles.

Despite these puzzles being optional, there will be some slight spoilers in terms of locations and context since you only access them in the game’s final chapter. Nothing the puzzles reveal will be spoiled, however, only their solutions.

The Old Bear’s Gift Puzzle

This puzzle is all about remembering what items the bear gave to the princess as gifts and selecting them from the picture. There are three items you need to select:

  1. The salmon hidden under one of the Lilly pads
  2. The berries in the bush on the bottom left
  3. Last the bluebell flowers behind the white bush on the far left

Select all three to open up a secret panel with a note.

  1. Giving the princess a hug to console her when she was upset

Once again you will be rewarded with another note to read.
