The Thresher is one of the areas you can visit in the new escape-room game called Escape Academy.
In this map, you will have to solve the puzzles on five different floors.
Here’s a walkthrough and guide of The Thresher in Escape Academy.
This guide will be divided into various floors. The difficulty is 3/5.
On the first floor, open the case and get the key.
Then, use the key on the pad lock.
You will then see a switch. Turn on the switch.
When the light turns red, look for a place to interact to pick up an item.
You can then pull off the cloth and you’ll see “We All Fear Water”.
The passcode to the next level is FEAR.
For the second floor, you will see some clues on the wall. None of the numbers will be 5, and red is double yellow (and yellow is an odd number 1 or 3).
Look for the blue valve. Use the pair of clippers to take it out.
Place the blue valve handle on one of the doors.
Based on the clues, you will learn that yellow is 3, blue is 4 and red is 6. Turn the valves to those numbers to open the door.
Inside, turn the wheel to pull up the hook and pick up the key.
Go back outside to open the padlock with the key.
You will get a handicam.
Place the handicam on the hook inside the room earlier, and turn the wheel again to lower it.
The monitor will display “WILL” which is the passcode.
On the third floor, pick up all the acrylic sheets. You will need three of them.
Also, pick up the opening instructions from the toilet bowl.
Then, place the respective acrylic sheets on the three yellow sheets on the wall.
They will form the numbers 510.
Now, go to the padlock under the electric panel and use 510.
The panel inside is missing a handle.
Head over to the safe.
Use the opening instructions you found earlier to learn the pattern for Mk. 5. You will see the patterns for Mk. 1 – 4 on the opening instructions.
Based on the previous patterns, for Mk. 5, press circle, circle, square, star and square.
Pick up the handle inside the safe.
Place it into the electric panel earlier. Turn the switch on.
You will see a W beside the 510, which makes the word “SLOW”. It is the password for this level.
For the fourth floor, pick up two strange devices from the bench.
Then, pick up the cipher sheet.
Use the cipher on the wall and it will give you the words “Under Pressure” and “Over Weight”.
You will see a Water Pressure valve. Inspect the switch under it. Place the strange device on the “Under” section and you will get “UR”.
Now, go to the Water Weight valve and place the strange device on the “Over” section.
You will get “YO”.
The passcode for this floor is “YOUR”.
On the last floor, use your hammer to smash the crate. Pick up the old map.
If you look at the Old Map you will see four yellow triangles. The yellow triangles can also be seen on four of the screens.
Follow the shape of the triangle on the Old Map to know which screen corresponds to which area. Consider the Old Map to be divided into four quarters and each quarter is related to a screen on the wall.
For e.g. the screen with MOVE has a triangle at the bottom, and refer to the Old Map to know which quarter it relates to.
The (1) on the Old Map indicates which letter you should take from the four boxes.
In this case, you should take the letter “M” as the (1) is on the top left of the quarter of the Old Map.
Similarly, for FIRE, look at the shape of the triangle to know which quarter it corresponds to on the Old Map.
You will see that the correct letter is where the (2) is which means “I”.
Do the same thing for KIND and BEND.
You will get the passcode “MIND”.
Walk up the ladder and you’ll reach the final part.
Here, you have to use the “repost / retry” icon to choose the words.
The correct sentence is FEAR WILL SLOW YOUR MIND.
