Animal Well: Giant clock solution

Solving the giant clock puzzle in Animal Well is no easy task and requires the most determined players. The puzzle is designed for speedrunners and the doors can only be opened if a player completes the game in a certain amount of time. The times for the three doors are as follows: 30 minutes, 90 minutes, and 5 hours. 

If you manage to complete the game within the time frames mentioned, the mysterious doors will open and you can claim the reward inside. Below are all the rewards you can earn from the giant clock in Animal Well.

  • 5 hours: Owl Figurine
  • 90 minutes: Figurine
  • 30 minutes: Cat Figurine

If you are quick enough and complete the game in 30 minutes or less, then all three doors will open and you can claim all three rewards. I recommend searching for speedrun strategies on YouTube to increase your chances of success.

Keep in mind that there is a second clock in the game, found on Bunny Island. There isn’t much known about this second giant clock, except for the fact that it offers more rewards for speedrunners and requires players to earn the true ending. At the time of writing, the times you need to complete the game and earn the true ending for the rewards on the second giant clock are undetermined.

Before attempting to speedrun Animal Well, I recommend finding the Stopwatch. It’s very easy to miss but can be crucial for your speedrunning adventure. This useful item activates an in-game timer at the bottom of the pause menu, allowing you to know how long you’ve been playing your current playthrough.
