Tormented Souls: All Puzzles Guide
Tormented Souls contains many puzzles that you must solve to advance the story. All but one of these puzzles are necessary to complete the game. This guide will show how to complete all the puzzles quickly, which can prove helpful when doing the Speedrun, or simply for reference on a first playthrough.
Depending on which patch you play this game on, you may find that certain sections of this guide do not match. That is because some items were moved around, and even some rooms changed entirely, in the early patches. This is especially noticeable between 1.00 and 1.01. This guide is accurate as of patch 1.02.
*In the room where you begin the game, there’ll be a padlock on a cabinet. Unlock it with 1235
to grab a Wrench, then interact with the head of the Wrench to open it slightly. Now use the Wrench on the door.
Once you get into the Generator Room, you will need to activate the generator. Grab the Valve next to where you start the generator, and go down to the control panel. Place the Valve on the bottom left pipe, then open them all except for the bottom valve on the right section so the dial reads 11kg/cm. Now return to the generator itself and turn it on.

You’ll be able to cycle through 12 channels, 5 of which will show an image. You need to cycle between the 5 images in a particular order, much like a combination lock. Do note that if you over-rotate the dial at all, it will reset the puzzle. Simply turn the TV off and on to try it again. The solution is:
