Watched some gameplay of fjords and it looks super cool! I think I've heard of the game but never actually seen it until now.
Yeah I got up to the non functional cpu without the whip at first, but then to get further up I went and got the whip then just went back through the cpu to the previous room.
And the beast wasn't down there at first, I guided it from the sideways skull room I think? It's up on some blocks or something and if you fall around that area into a gap there's a small hole that leads out into the abyss. so I just let the beast fall through it, followed it down and froze it at the last second. If/when you update it I'd definitely be happy to test things further, you can contact me if you like, I'll probably still go back at some point to try a few other things out with the whip in the meantime!
