Once you get to Unexpected Audience after completing mission 3-15, you’ll unlock the following riddle: “George the Oak is already 700 years old. Which animals in the tree listened to that song with you?”

If you’ve been paying attention to the main story, the answer is pretty straightforward. If, like me, you tapped/clicked a bit too fast during the main story, here’s the solution: Red squirrels and woodpeckers

Just make sure there aren’t any typos in that text box. Reverse 1999 is a stickler for spelling and punctuation. If it doesn’t work the first time, double-check those details.

The key to the Unexpected Audience Riddle in Reverse 1999 lies in a previous cutscene from mission 3-10, “O, Captain!” In that scene, you learn about George the Oak’s history, its 700-year existence, and the critters residing inside, which are — you guessed it! —, red squirrels and woodpeckers.

Once you nail the riddle, you’ll score 20 Clear Drops and 1 Tiny Acorn. The Tiny Acorn will come in handy later, though its exact purpose isn’t revealed yet. Just keep it safe for the future.

Oh, and if this puzzle made you feel like a bad gamer for not knowing anything about Reverse 1999’s lore, you can replay the cutscene in the Story Review section of the Atlas.
