Now, make your way to the other side of the room, where you’ll see a button. Pressing it will lower a chair. All you need to do is lower the chair onto the white dotted outline.
Chapter 1 Safe Combination
The first safe puzzle now. You’ll need to input the code 10-80-40. This means spinning to 10 (anti-clockwise), 80 (clockwise), and then 40 (anti-Clockwise). Release each time you input a number and the safe will open !

And one is in the fireplace behind the desk. Once they’re all in place, grab the plug from the ground next to the desk and plug it in. Press the button and then look through the porthole of the rocket.
Layers of Fear 2 Plant Puzzle
