I keep getting stuck in the cart

I have killed the red beam and am on the way to laser the red rocks blocking the way to the mineshaft. But I can't see the door to get out of the cart. Help!

You should be able to rotate the chair by moving the mouse so you can see the door.

Thanks for having a look at my problem -- unfortunately I have already tried that and I can't get to swivel in my seat by moving my mouse in my current situation. I am pretty sure that when resume the game I will be outside the cart, but the same thing keeps happening when I am in it again.

I'm trying to think what would cause this, and the only thing I can think of is some weirdness with the controls. Are you using a keyboard and mouse? If so, are you using free roam mode or point-and-click? Also, do you play with the cursor locked or unlocked? I noticed some weirdness with the cart and changing those settings. Nothing that got me stuck, but just maybe...

Since I'm not using the latest version (still using 1.01), there's also a possibility that there's a bug in the most recent version. Are you using that one or an earlier version? Version number would be on the bottom of the main menu screen. If you're not using the latest 1.4.2 version, I suggest updating. If you are, I'll try updating and see if it's an issue with the version or just your setup.

If you see a little circle on your screen after clicking on something, get rid of it by right-clicking. After it goes away, you should be able to rotate or move around. At least it works for me. (Mac OS 10.12.3, Obduction v 1.4.2.)

I've also found that when seemingly stuck (outside the cart), if I briefly move backwards, the circle will disappear and I can then move freely. (I always play in "Free Roam" mode.)
