On this page of our Call of the Sea game guide, we provide a walkthrough for the second gameplay stage, Chapter 1 - 74 Miles East of Otaheité. We have listed all the interactions you need to complete before you can cross the wooden bridge.
This page only contains the walkthrough of Chapter 1 - 74 Miles East of Otaheité. You'll find the secrets and puzzle solutions on separate pages of our guide:
This chapter starts with a solo expedition to a mysterious island. This landscape reflects the main character's pictures and dreams.
You don't have to do anything during the boat ride. The woman will steer the boat until it reaches the shore. During the boat ride, she will regale you a few stories that may help you get immersed in the plot.
Once you reach the island, the character will climb out of the boat. She will leave most of her possessions in it. However, she will keep a few key items on her, so you don't need to worry about the key or the journal.
Your task is to cross the wooden gate. Before you go through it, you ought to explore the surrounding area.
The gate has an unusual mechanism. To start it, you need to pull two levers, but these will only work with the proper mechanisms.
The first lever (the one on the left) works without issue. You can pull it immediately to unlock the first part of the gate.
Look at the second mechanism, it's missing a key element. Don't worry, you'll find it in the jungle.
Stand with your back to the gate and look at one of the signs. You'll spot the name of the main character on it. Naturally, she panics at the sight of it, but she is determined to continue her journey.
Approach the table. On it, you'll find a knife (you can't take it with you) and a metal box.
Unprompted, the character will use the key from the prologue sequence. All you have to do is pick up the piece of paper. It contains a clue as to the location of the mechanism necessary to open the gate.
Head towards the beach. Look to the left, trying not to miss the flowers scattered in a small corner. The mechanism you need is hidden there.
You'll find a loose stone next to some flowers. Approach it and move it out of the way to see what's underneath. The character will be able to lift this heavy stone without a problem.
You'll find the mechanism in the hiding spot. Pick it up and return to the gate.
Once the mechanism is in its place, simply pull the lever. This will open the passage to the next part of the jungle.
In the second section of the map, you just need to lower the bridge. This is a fairly simple task, you just need to order the symbols correctly.
You can find a detailed walkthrough of this puzzle on a separate page of the guide - Chapter 1 - 74 Miles East of Otaheité - Bridge mechanism. From it, you will learn where to find the puzzle notes and how to order the symbols.
Chapter 1 ends once you cross the bridge. Only cross it if you are sure that you have already collected everything in this part of the map.
At this point, you can get an achievement!
You will need to head back to the boat before crossing the bridge. On the beach, you will realise that your boat has drifted away. By examining the track, you will earn the achievement - Gently down the stream...
