The pantry puzzle is one of the first locked room puzzles C-Team will encounter in Zero Time Dilemma. Here’s how to solve the puzzle.
Step 1: Examine the cardboard box sitting on the metal shelf to reveal a box of potatoes, and grab the round part.
Step 2: Open the metal cabinet below the box to find gelatin powder and a fake leg.
Step 3: Insert the round part into the gingerbread man hole in the machine near the door.
Step 4: Open the metal cabinet to the right of the wall with the gelatin instructions to find the iodine solution.
Step 5: Go back to the box of potatoes and use the iodine solution there. You’ll get the letters: D U D L L R
Step 6: Go to the glass cabinet and open the left door with this combination: down, up, down, left, left, right
Step 7: Open the glass cabinet’s right door with this combination: right, left, left, down, up, down
Step 8: Behind the left door, check the fruit puzzle piece and simply rotate all the faces of the puzzle piece until the fruits and leaves match.
Step 9: Take the blue doll and heat it up to reveal the combination 1234.
Step 10: Take the bottle of water and card from behind the right door in the glass cabinet.
Step 11: Combine the cookie cutter, water, and gelatin. Put it in the gingerbread man machine and cool it down.
Step 12: Put the cool gelatin in the gingerbread man slot to reveal a small key.
Step 13: Open the right-side metal cabinet below the box of potatoes, and use the key to reveal a combination on the fake hand: 625. The game tries to trick you by making the numbers look like ‘529’, but you actually have to flip it around. Classic Zero Escape.
Step 14: Add up the numbers you have so far. 1234 + 625 = 1859. Key in this combination in the keypad next to the door.
Step 15: Use the small key on the handcuffs next to where you found the blue doll to get the right hand.
Step 16: Heat up the right hand to get its palm to open up.
Step 17: Use the right hand to authenticate the biometric pass on the door.
That’s it. You managed to seek a way out of the pantry room in Zero Time Dilemma.
