Written by for Guides on

Iris Fall may not be a long game but it's definitely perplexing at times so I wrote this walkthrough to help you figure out how to complete each of its 8 chapters. Plus, depending on your console, you'll earn a shiny platinum trophy or every single achievement by the end.

Prepare for a journey filled with light and shadow

Chapter 1

  1. Head left down the stairs then transform into a shadow when prompted and transform back after the bridge
  2. After the scene, run left, enter shadow form, and collect the item from the platform
  3. Go right and use the item on the central device to erect a platform then head up the ramp in shadow and exit the room
  4. In the dark room, examine the picture in the back, take the gear from the right side of the seesaw then place it on the left side, and ascend the ramp as a shadow to collect a puppet
  5. Interact with the 3 buttons on the table, move the bottom object to the right position and the other 2 all the way to the left, and collect another puppet at the top
  6. Place the princess puppet on the left of the stage, the prince on the right, and position them as seen in the photos above them (you may have to increase the brightness setting to see) then exit

Chapter 2

  1. Turn into a shadow on the right to collect a cog then place the cog on the machine
  2. Solve the puzzles in the machine by moving the wires into place then pressing the buttons (see screenshot below)
  3. Enter the room up the ramp, place the rod in the top-right contraption, interact with the bottom-right contraption, and go up the stairs with the newly-formed ramp
  4. At the top, arrange the stairs so you can climb to the top-right, arrange them again so you can go to the bottom, and move them again there so your shadow can progress
