Partial answer: significant progress, not sure what the next step is To start: Next, we follow those instructions: The next instruction is So, the last instruction says ...So now what?

Based on the feedback that my last attempt seemed promising, I will continue in that vein. My second guess is: The reason: Original attempt:


1

My second guess for the code is My original guess was Because: A comment from OP suggests the code can be found as So, noticing that

With thanks to @Deusovi for solving the Masyus and doing the hard part. If you overlay the Masyu solutions on the Nurikabe solution, you will find something interesting: You notice that To extract: So to make this Masyu more colorful, you should probably do this: There, much better.

Partial answer - stuck on extraction Solution to the Nurikabe: What else is going on? I'm not sure what to do next; overlaying the solutions to the logic puzzles doesn't look like anything useful. (And the fact that the 4×4 doesn't appear to work is surprising...)

Continuing from Deusovi's work, here are the solutions to the remaining subpuzzles (the second from the first row, and the first, second and third from the second row. The rest is copied from Deusovi)

Each of these grids is Solutions are below: (Puzzles 2, 5, 6, and 7 were solved by Reinier.) For the next step:

I don't know the whole answer, but my guess is that .......__.. is Morse Code. Unfortunately, due to a lack of spacing, there are many ways to translate it. The next sentence says 'V is a sign for you.' This could mean to look for V in the code (..._). This translates as HVD, SEVD, ESVD, IIVD, EEIVD, EIEVD, IEEVD, EEEEVD, HVNE, SEVNE, ESVNE, IIVNE, EEIVNE,...

The grid is I couldn't find a logical path to reconstruct it; here's the solution I found through trial and error.

(Thanks for the opportunity to answer one of these myself!) This puzzle is a: Both @jafe and @Rand'alThor have already solved the first-stage nonogram. The next thing to notice is that: To extract the puzzle's name, we then...

Nonogram solution is as follows: Now some letters while others Noticeably, that second set of letters The first set looks like it might be Other types of puzzle that come to mind, looking at this:

Partial answer Completed nonogram: No idea what to do next...


8

The message is: After solving the Nonogram and combining it with the number grid (thanks @Rand) we get When we now sort the letters according to their numbers we get Taking the first letter of each of these words gives the final message shown at the top. Very nice and tough puzzle, btw!

Since this is about "fourth wall", the answer should involve We don't have much to go on, so let's try Found one: Now since we're looking for an image, The only result that comes up is which contains this image:

Partial answer ... Welcome back btw! Nonogram I love me a good nonogram puzzle :-) This seems to be Poem I think perhaps Incorrect, there is zero weight Mother! Striped with no bra Beat the sword, the best characters Gentlemen, behind! Largest to smallest Here’s the rhyme there’s not much time Every façade will fade to show true face Let your head ...

I would say the ? should be:

The first step is this: Then,

I believe the answer is: This works as follows:

Very very very partial answer; others should feel free to plunder it As I remarked in TSL chat, I can do just enough of this to be pretty sure I'm the wrong person to try to do all of it. (The right person to do all of it is Deusovi, I think :-).) OP encouraged me there to "say what you've got and invite collaboration", so here we are. I think much of this ...

Partial Answer I think this puzzle is related to: Partial Examples $(39 = 65 = 68 = 70 \approx 67) \subset 69 \mapsto 90$ $2 < 80 < 52 < (58 \approx 46) < 92 < 93 \le 94$ The remaining examples, FYI: Question (Unsolved) $\text{75 and 34, where are they?}$ Bonus Question $37 \approx 55 \land 37 \ne 55, \text{why}?$

As figured out by both Lanny Strack and Rand al'Thor, Combined with the title, the song must be Also, as noticed by Stiv,

@MichałWójcik made good inroads into this puzzle, and his answer proved helpful for my own (go upvote him). The 10-letter answer to this puzzle is: Michał correctly identified 9 of the 10 flags; however, he needed to rotate the tenth one by 180 degrees to find the right country (had this been the only finding left to the puzzle I would have merely posted ...

I've only got a few of the answers so far, but wanted to put them out there to maybe provide a starting point. No idea what to do with the circle of letters at this time. 2) Not the sheep belonging to the departed 4) Mysterious healer 10) Imaginary fruit flesh 13) Jamaican peer-to-peer enthusiasts

A little late to the party, but here is my solution. With some help from @Omega Krypton I solved it. Solving the nonogram, multiple solutions: Applying the hint from @Omega Krypton: This makes it possible to deduce the four letter word:
