Obduction walkthrough: Hunrath 6. Watering the Tree

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.


Take the elevator back up to the mayor's office. Keep to the right wall, and exit through the first door you unlocked earlier toward the Tree.

Turn right and follow the path around. You'll come to the gate you just opened. Head around to the other side of the Tree where you'll find an opening. The hose you see sends water to the Tree's roots — which you sent water to earlier.

Follow the tunnel all the way down to the room at the bottom. Opposite the tunnel, you'll find another valve. Turn the handle to return the water to the roots of the Tree.

There are three doors down here that lead into, well, outer space apparently. You can't get through the portals, but it appears as if the hoses and wires (leading to the monitoring station at the top of the tower) can.

If you were to (you don't have to) go check the dashboard at the top of the tower, you would see that the Hunrath gauge is now lit up and measuring.

Navigating Obduction (and our guide)

We've organized our Obduction guide based on worlds and what you do in them, so each section is a world, and chapter's name represents a puzzle or an objective. Every page flows into the next, and you can use the quick navigation box just above to hop to the previous or next area.

In long chapters, there's a table of contents at the top of the page. In every chapter, there's a table of contents at the bottom showing Obduction in its entirety. If you're not sure exactly where to go, just look at the copious images on each page. When they look familiar, you'll be able to orient yourself.
