Submachine 5: The Root (or Sub5) is the fifth installment of the main Submachine series.
The player starts in a different part of the lab than in Submachine 4. Mur sends a message on a computer telling the player to gather 3 wisdom gems, and then to explore the outer reaches of the net. The player then travels to the Root - the original submachine - which is reached via the code 552 on the same portal used in Submachine 4. Then, with a new teleporter system exclusive to the Root using cipher plates, the player finds connections to the lighthouse and the ancient room to collect 2 of the wisdom gems. The player later finds the third gem in a different location in the Root.
After finding the gems, the player leaves the Root and teleports to the corridor (747), using the gems in a machine to travel to the Edge.
