OK. I have 31 cubes, and 7 bits. There is one missing. Where in the world is it hidden?

Before you say, "That's impossible to answer without knowing all the other ones you've already collected" there are a few relevant bits of information:

  • Going through as if this were my first play-through:
    • Not exploring any secret areas
    • Avoiding all anti-cubes, even the more obvious ones
  • With the exception of secret doors:
    • All rooms on my map are gold
    • All non-secret paths have been thoroughly explored

Why am I going through the game this way? Because it's fun! During my first play-through a few years ago, much was left unexplored since enough stray anti-cubes were collected to finish the game without exploring everything.

Given all that, the real question is:

Is there a secret room somewhere with a cube bit in it?

  • I don't think the editorial italics adds much to this question, especially the jab at the reader. An otherwise good question and answer that might get downvotes it doesn't deserve.

It's the owls. You must find the four owls, and enter their secret room, that has one cube bit, and also an anti-cube.

This is the only secret room in the game that has a regular cube bit inside it.

This seems like the designer's way of ensuring that everyone who completes the game is, at the very least, aware of the existence of anti-cubes.

  • I should have been tipped off by this earlier, as a comment on another question mentioned that finding the owls was required (and apparently required for the first play-through, assuming you don't stumble on any anti-cubes). Jul 31 '17 at 2:51
