The Talos Principle 2 continues to explore philosophical and sci-fi themes adapted from its 2014 predecessor. One of the unique features of the game is the introduction of optional challenges known as Lost Puzzles. While providing a mental break from the main puzzles, these challenges contribute to your progress within an area, allowing you to unlock the Golden Gate puzzles.

The Slide Puzzle is one of the Lost Puzzles in the game that incorporates tools such as Connectors, Hexahedrons, and Activators. It's a large puzzle room requiring you to use a combination of different mechanics, so it might be confusing to solve. Here's how you can get past this puzzle room.


How to solve the Slide Lost Puzzle in The Talos Principle 2

Climb up the ladder to access the Activator. Connect it to the floating Connector to disable the Energy Gate containing another Hexahedron. Take Hexahedron 2 and place it against the high wall. Grab the Activator and place it on top of Hexahedron 2 to disable the Energy Gate.

Head back to Connector 2 and remove it from the red platform. Remove the Hexahedron and attach the fan to the device. Place the Hexahedron on top of the fan and place Connector 2 on it. Stand on the red platform to propel Connector 2 upward. The Activator should also move to the center of the room.
