On this page of our guide to The Medium, you will find a walkthrough for the 14th stage of the game, Ruins. We have described all the interactions you need to perform while exploring this area. In this sequence, you mainly have to examine some items that will help you get out of the ruins. You may also come across many collectibles and secrets.
While running away from the monster, you will reach the ruins. Don't think you're safe there, though. The ruins will only slightly slow your opponent.
Your goal is to go downstairs, where the generator is located. It will enable you to leave the ruins.
Move around using all possible holes and passages.
At some points, you will find single boards that you must walk on. Remember, these are the moments when no one can hurt you and you can't fall down.
The insight will make it easier for you to get through this location. You can keep checking the tracks and follow them to quickly reach the next part of the location.
You need to make a passage – move the elements that are blocking the path. Don't wait too long with exploring the area.
Follow the tracks to get to the next part of the room. It's not difficult, just follow the path.
The door you have reached doesn't require any code or the use of any tools.
Look to the left – there is a picture lying on a barrel. When you examine it, part of the item will disappear. You won't have time to think about this situation, however, because the monster will appear behind you.
Run forward, dodging obstacles and going through every possible passage.
To stop the monster, move the concrete mixer so that the passage collapses.
After gaining a little bit of time, turn right and destroy the chain to get through. Remember to use bolt cutters for this.
You must do the same with the next door. Use the bolt cutters and then continue exploring the ruins.
When you go downstairs, you will see a generator. It is essential for moving on. You must find fuel and the lever to use the generator.
Let's start with the lever. To get to it you have to go upstairs. Simply jump up onto the planks and then cut the chain to get through.
Next, you have to walk across a plank hanging right above the water. This takes a lot of time, so don't try to go back the same way. If the character starts walking, she won't be able to turn around. This can cost you a lot of time.
You will come across your nemesis. Remember to hold your breath so he doesn't find you.
Turn left and approach the rope. You need to cut it to distract the monster and get through. Cutting the rope will cause several objects to fall – this will be loud enough to conceal your movements.
When the monster moves away, squeeze through the hole in the wall.
The next part is simple. Walk along the ruins and don't worry – you can't fall down.
You'll see a box on the boards and the lever you need to get out of the ruins. Take it and put in your inventory.
To get back to the generator, you need to jump onto the planks and cut the chain with the bolt cutters.
Escape from the ruins
Place the lever in the switch on the wall. Pull it down to open the passage.
Now it's time for fuel. You will find it literally a few meters behind the generator. Pick up the canister and head to the generator.
Pour fuel into the generator and start it by pressing the green button. Then push the generator and hit the fence with it. This will end the sequence.
