In Blue Lacuna, I've found a door containing a series of buttons labeled with tiny pictograms of objects and creatures from around the island. Adorning the door at eye-level is a series of six colored bands directly on the wood. From left to right, the colors are red, yellow, black, white, blue, and green.
I'm not looking for the solution to this puzzle, yet, but I am curious whether I should be able to solve it already. Do the bands have something to do with how the door is opened? Is the information explaining how to decode the bands' meaning self-evident—in other words, will it be obvious to me when I'm ready to open this door, or should I be looking for the solution in more oblique corners of the game world?
