Lost the Plot

This was another trial-run I did with other new recruits when I was working for Tick Tock.

Story

Having survived a plane crash, reunite with your group and disable an electromagnet device to prevent your memories being wiped. Lost meets Memento, maybe? The set-up didn't really line up with the ultimate goal.

Puzzles

Final Comments

If the story isn't strong enough, it just seems like you've been thrown into a room to solve a few brainteasers and hopefully have a good time. Meh.

I really didn't expect to
