The Past Within: Chapter 2 – Walkthrough
The Past Within is a Co-Op Point and Click adventure set in the mysterious world of Rusty Lake. Both of the players will get to choose one of the sides between Past and Future. The players will make a successful connection at the end of the first chapter and then the second chapter will start.
In this guide, we’ll be covering the second chapter of the Past Within game.
We’ll denote both of the players with the side that they chose. One player will be the Past and the other player will be Future.
The second chapter starts from where chapter 1 ends but in this chapter Past gets to use the device in which we placed the Bone, Flesh, and Blood in the first chapter, and Future will be able to explore the laboratory in which he is. At the start of the chapter, Future will find some papers on the table and there’ll be a code written on the paper that Past needs to enter into the machine. Past needs to rotate the machine to the right side and will find the Resurrection Process terms in which he has to enter the code to transfer the Bone, Flesh, and Blood. The Code that Past needs to enter by using the 6 buttons is “Z1X23Y”.
After putting in the code, the next note will appear in which 9 buttons are shown with 6 of them highlighted. Past needs to tell Future that he needs to get the Black Cube from the machine and place it in C-9 where he’ll be able to press the buttons. When Future zooms out of the machine, a Black Cube will come out of the device. Pick up the cube and the matchbox from the table and switch the area of the room to a big machine. Click on the console on the right side of the machine to zoom in and you’ll see C-9.

Now, Future needs to click on the clock under the console and press the button to reset the hands of the clock. Now, Past needs to zoom out and click below on the eye shape with three color movable switches around it. The hands of the clock on Future’s side also have the same color. White, Red, and Black. Future needs to tell the position of each hand to Past so he can place the same color switch on the position of the same hand on the clock. Put the Black switch on 11, put the Red switch on 1, and put the White switch on 3. By placing the buttons in the right position, Past will be able to see through the eye to Future’s side and will see Albert’s Shadow in the cylinder and a Lady Scientist.
Zooming out from the eye will reveal a music key to the Past. Pick up the music key and then rotate to the next side of the machine. Click on the lower side and place the music key and then drag it to open the compartment which will reveal a piano and “78.3” written above it.
