Once you enter the Slums, you’ll first need to make your way down a series of narrow alleys as the robot denizens of this area run and hide from you. Eventually you’ll reach what serves as the central hub of the area, and a cutscene will play. Once it ends, walk up to the robot with the big hat and try to speak with him. Once you finish your conversation, another short cutscene will start, in which the town’s lockdown will end. Now, you’ll be able to explore the area freely.
First, you’ll have to speak with the Guardian — show him the Postcard, and he’ll point you in the direction of Momo, who’s your only real lead for getting out of the city. If you want to do things in the intended order, you can make your way to the building with the orange neon sign, but for convenience’s sake, we’re going to follow a path that gets all of the items we need before we speak with Momo.
To progress to the next part of the story, you need to find 3 notebooks. You can either speak with Momo and learn more about the Outsiders (and then possibly use the hints given below) or just follow the steps in the solutions!
If you just want to take the most efficient path through the level, do the following solutions in the order they are listed.
Once you have all three notebooks, you can head to Momo’s apartment. There are a lot of different paths you can take to reach the rooftops (including the one found in the first gallery under “Solution for Finding Zbaltazar’s Notebook”), so take your pick. Once you’re up on top of the slums, look towards the huge orange neon sign to find the path into Momo’s apartment.
Once you’re in Momo’s apartment, speak with him, and show him the Postcard — he’ll give you his notebook in return. Next, show him all three of his friends’ notebooks, and he’ll agree to help you reach the outside. You’ll receive the Transceiver, and he’ll open a window on the other side of the apartment.
Before you leave, you can do a couple of things here. First, head into the bedroom and look at the poster — this will get you another Memory. You can also head into the dark closet (2) and jump up onto the boxes, and from there onto the shelf, where you’ll find Sheet Music #1.
When you’re ready, you can head over to where Momo is waiting and jump out of the window and onto the porch. Congrats, you’ve made it to the Rooftops!
Don’t worry about the fact that (if you were strictly following the walkthrough) you didn’t explore much of the Slums — we’ll return to the Slums soon, and you’ll get a chance to check out the rest of the area.
