On this page of our Little Nightmares 2 walkthrough guide, we've covered the portion of stage 1, Forest - here you'll find the walkthrough for the Road through the forest. We have described all the interactions you need to perform to reach the first house.
You start your adventure with Little Nightmares 2 in a forest, right next to a TV. You are playing as Mono. Your task is to traverse the road safely – you must avoid numerous dangers and solve many puzzles.
When Mono stands up, immediately move to the right.
Jump over the small chasm. Nothing will happen to you if you fall. You can run around and explore the area. However, you will not get to the next part of the area from the back.
As you walk along you will see that the path is blocked. Just walk to the grate, grab it and pull it hard. After that, it will go up – you have a few seconds to run into the tunnel.
Crouch to avoid hitting your head on the ceiling. Otherwise, your character will stand still and won't go any further.
As you continue walking, you will come across an unpleasant looking trap. Try not to worry about it though. Just pass the bag full of corpses and jump to the next part of the area.
In order to jump over the chasm, you simply have to run up onto the destroyed branch. When you jump off the top of it, you will get to the next area.
As you continue through the forest, you will come across quite a few traps. Some of them can be jumped over (like the one shown in the screenshot above). Others will require you to use objects lying around to trigger them.
To get further, you must push the trap to the lower area. It will launch you in the air.
Push the crate against the wall, jump on it, and climb up. Mono will easily pull up to get further.
It's time for the first escape sequence – just start running right away. If you wait for even a second, you will not survive.
To get further, you need to get to the hanging loop. It may seem complicated at first glance, but this very simple to do.
Don't run forward – look into the distance. There is an empty bough right next to it – run inside and get to the top.
This task is simple – you just have to catch the loop and jump to the other side. However, if you fail to do so, Mono will fall down – you will have to repeat the sequence all over again.
Once you are at the top, you need to use the lever. Rotate it to lower the boards so that your character can climb them.
Don't be slow. As soon as you release the lever, you will have to jump on the boards and then jump to the other side. If you stay on the crate, it will take you to the top – jumping from there will lead to your death.
At first glance, it may seem that the bridge can't be crossed. But don't jump into the abyss! This will kill Mono.
Move closer to the rope hanging on the edge and slowly slide down – you need to jump to the lower floor.
There is a chest there that will save your life. Due to its height, you will fall much lower, so Mono will be fine.
This part is simple. Just climb the damaged boards all the way to the top. Don't worry, none of them will fall off.
As you continue walking, you will come across an area with multiple snares. You have to avoid them in different ways.
However, let's start with the first one. Pick up one shoe (whichever one) and go higher with it.
You have to throw the shoe at a certain spot to trigger the trap. If you fail, don't try to go after that shoe and throw it again. Doing this can lead to your death. Just go for another shoe and try again – keep doing this until you get it right.
Disarming this trap will enable you to move on. Remember – you can't just jump over it.
You will see a path with several snares set up. Run around them in a way that would let you avoid activating the snares.
To move on, you need one important item – a stick that you can take out of closed snares.
Take the stick and hit the snare with it. This will enable you to move on.
Don't try to jump over snares! If you are successful, the stick will stay on top. You will need it later.
If you fail, then you will end up like our Mono, caught in a snare.
Jump into a bough and slide down to get to the next part of the forest.
It's time to grab the stick again and hit the surrounding leaves. You must activate the snare that hides under a layer of leaves and moss.
Now it's time for the cones. Throw a few of them at the leaves. By doing so, you will activate the snare and clear the path.
Lastly, you have to jump on the boards to get to the top. Be careful, there are more snares placed right in front of them. When you jump on the boards, one of them will break off and fall into the trap. This will disarm the trap.
Entrance to the house
You will finish this sequence by entering the first house. You need to get to it to continue the game.
Start by climbing the stairs – there are no traps on them.
Don't try to open the door. Jump onto the crate, and then onto the windowsill. This way, you'll get inside quickly – and there will be no dangers in your path.
