Red Matter is a story-driven VR puzzle adventure game set during a dystopian sci-fi Cold War. Take on the role of Agent Epsilon, an astronaut of the Atlantic Union dispatched to an abandoned Volgravian moon base on a frozen, faraway planet. Your mission: to investigate a shady top secret research project. Great art, good interaction and a reasonable story.
This guide is for “The First King”, “The Second King”, The Third King”, and the “Meet the Maker” achievement. The three Red Kings are graffiti style paintings of the red king chess piece. The “Meet the Maker” achievement is earned by finding the hidden data drive and scanning it. This data drive is the same size and shape as the other data drives you regularly scan throughout the game (the ones that look like NES cartridges). This guide will be as spoiler free as possible.
The First King
The first Red King is in the first room you enter right after you enter the base. Go to the back of the room on the second floor and turn and face the front entrance and the first King will be on the left side of the center pillar. Scan it to get the achievement.
The Second King
After you go down the first elevator (when the power gets cut off) exit the elevator and go down the hall to the right towards the power station to restart the power generator (as you normally would). Before you enter the power generator room look on the wall opposite the door and the door and you will see the second King on that wall. If it’s too dark to see where it is you will have another chance to find it after you get the generator restarted and the lights will be back on. Scan it to receive the achievement.
The Third King
Near the end of the game you will find this fancy bedroom. Toward the back, there will be a dresser with a bunch of drawings of pawns on it. Move the drawings out of the way and there will be a red King behind them. Scan it to receive the achievement.
Meet the Maker
At the very end of the game, you will be outside the base and your mission will be to run to the communications tower. As soon as you get outside instead of running to the right, towards the tower, go to the left. There will be a bunch of crates. On top of one of the crates will be a grey datadrive. Scan it to receive the achievement (and see a few nice pictures of all the developers).
