It doesn't seem like there's anything keeping you from just skipping all the tutorial puzzles that show you the various puzzle mechanics which is an....interesting design choice, I guess? I'm just imagining how annoyed I would be to make some progress in one part of the island and then get stymied because I ran into a mechanic I've never seen before with the tutorial puzzles that explain it somewhere completely different, and having to trudge around looking for them, and then trudging all the way back....

Luckily, the island isn't extremely large, most areas that require certain knowledge are gated in some way (though most of the island is available as soon as you open the white gate), there's a variety of fast travel, and even some rather obvious hints (which doesn't stop most players from missing them) to where the mechanics are learned .

Enjoying this so far, really digging the draw overlay. I think the Metroid comparison is spot-on.

You should definitely check out Katie's comment that was blatantly ignored at the end of the episode. Very insightful.
