In Tunic you're tasked with setting out on an adventure to uncover the secrets of the island, and to free the caged being by tracking down the three keys to their lock. Tunic has a health mix of difficult combat paired with plenty of secrets to discover and puzzles to unlock. In this Tunic Guides - Guide Hub we'll direct you to each section of Tunic you might be interested in discovering, as well as some tips for the different combat encounters that you'll face.
Before we begin I do want to stress that a lot of Tunic's secrets are best when you stumble upon them yourself, and work towards a solution. Some of these puzzles require paying close attention to your environments and can be very rewarding when completed so if you want to get the full Tunic experience then it's worth trying to work through these puzzles on your own before seeking out the solution.

Tunic Beginner's Guide - Game Mechanics To Remember
The majority of Tunic isn't taught to you, instead, you learn it by obtaining pieces of the Instruction Manual and inferring from the images. Sometimes you only receive half a page, sometimes you have a page of information written in a different language, but the information there can all be used. Tunic is a game best learned through discovery, for those of you who might be impatient though we have a rundown of things you should know going into Tunic.

What does this pattern on the wall/door mean?
Tunic has the use of a Holy Cross for opening doors and walls with patterns on them. The Holy Cross is your DPAD or Arrow Keys depending on what your preferred method of input is. Standing in front of a wall or door with a traced pattern on it and keying in the directions of the lines sequentially, normally starting from a diamond or circular shape. There's more information on this on Page 43 and Page 44 of the Instruction Manual.
What are the gold platforms for?
You'll come across a series of Gold Platforms on the ground. If you stand still and hold the dodge/sprint button for 3 seconds your Fox will kneel down and begin to pray. This will take you to a hub where you can teleport between different locations in the game.
How can I sprint in Tunic?
When walking hold the dodge roll button after rolling and your Fox will sprint.

Can I customize the fox in Tunic??
From the Old House in the Overworld head South, down the spiral staircase to a platform with a pool and a platform in the middle. To the north, you'll see a collection of trees. Walk behind these trees and you'll find yourself in a room with a Chest containing a Gold Coin, and a series of folding dressers. Walking behind each of them will change a different part from the fur, to the bandanna and belt.
