    In a survival horror game, what would be some good puzzles relating to these locations?

    Hotel
    Mines
    Sewers
    Mansion
    Theatre
    Hospital
    Asylum
    Church

    Hotel: Relocate guests according to specific room requirements.
    Mines: STOP THE CAVE IN! Have to add supports in some areas and place dynamite charges in other areas, all according to some pattern.
    Sewers: Open and close valves/drains to get the sewer flowing correctly. Or the opposite. Stop up drains and redirect flows to flood an area.
    Mansion: There's a secret passageway behind the bookshelf, the fireplaces, and under the staircase. But you need to reach one secret area before reaching another.
    Hospital: ... don't forget the hospital morgue.
    Asylum: Have to restore utility services in a certain order. Electric for light, water, heat, etc. Each step involves returning certain inmates to their rooms first or they'll sabotage that step.
    Church: Something interesting happens when you play the church organ just so...

    I should've mentioned it's an abandoned town so no guests in the hotel, might still be inmates left in the asylum. Was planning on doing something with the hospital morgue but not figured out what yet, either a puzzle or creepy scene.

    @Bumblefish97 General Discussion is not for feedback on individual, specific projects, but for broad themes which affect the making of games.

    This discussion could be allowed to become general, in which case, you would have to refrain from steering it back to your own needs, and if a reply is on topic but not relevant to you, then you would need to just ignore it. Or it could be entirely about your game, in which case, the thread would need to be moved to Game Ideas and Prototypes.

    Please post and say which you want.
    Thanks.
