You have to do something before, speaking around may help you.

And if you don't have a clue who to speak to, LOOKING around might give you a clue :)

(yay, my game has a thread in Hints & Tips :D)

A hint without giving it right away isn't that easy -hmmmm -  maybe ...
Spoiler: ShowHide
if you look in the sky and then imagine, what might be suitable  for the sun to lay on ... it needs to be light, fluffy, cuddly ... (roll)

I'm stuck near the end.  I've been at this for weeks, and still can't figure it out.   :confused:

Spoiler: ShowHide
I'm in his spaceship.  I've already fuelled the tank with fireflies and the watch.  But I can't figure out the 3 slider controls to make the ship go.  If I slide one thing, another slider moves.   :confused:

Ahhh, thanks Tabata   :grin:  I was trying to get them all in the middle   :tongue:

Finished the game now.  Love it!  The moments when Gray went a little psycho made me laugh.   :=

And love that smiley, Tabata   :wink:

I have the feather and the bee stinger, what should I do next? I know that the sun needs a pillow but I only have these 2 things.

Also, take a good look around the place where the sun is right now... :)

I'm stuck at this point as well. I've tried every action/item with the 'pillow' found somewhere, but i can't seem to progress. Any hints?

If I remember correctly....

Hint 1
Spoiler: ShowHide
 Something as big as the sun would need a pretty big pillow


Hint 2
Spoiler: ShowHide
 Take a look around the orchard


Hint 3
Spoiler: ShowHide
 You might need to get a bit higher

Post by: jediron on 09 Feb 2013, 12:22
My progress (still the same point where I'm stuck with):
Spoiler: ShowHide
Yes I'm in the orchard where I have found the 'pillow', but i am unable to make use of the ladder or fence there (to get higher [#Hint 3]). Have I forgotten to do anything elsewhere? I currently have the bee sting and magpie feather.

1. Take a good look at the reed by the lake.

And if that doesn't give you an idea yet, then

Spoiler: ShowHide
2. Gray, being the careful person that he is, wouldn't try pouncing on the cloud to get it. He'd more likely use a tool to get it down.

Many thanks to the first hint, Fitz! Wasn't that observant while at the lake. Managed to finish the game at last!

Thanks for creating such a wonderful game!  :smiley:

Thank YOU for playing! :D

If you enjoyed the game, you might also like Gray's page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/GRAY/465049040221383)! Every day I post videos expanding on trivia that Gray mentions in the game. AND my work on the game is far from over, there will be plenty of new stuff :)

Having trouble getting the stinger out.

Getting the pillow. I only have the stinger and the feather. I read about a blow gun in previous hints but eh? Help please.

Yes, you need to find something usable as blowgun.
Spoiler: ShowHide
Something in the shape of a thin pipe would do the trick.

... still no luck?
Spoiler: ShowHide
Search for a plant growing near the water.

It won't let me take the reed unless there's something I'm not seeing.

Yeah, it's one of those pixel hunting moments in the game ;) Not the most difficult thing to spot, but the cursor only having one-pixel hotspot instead of the whole cursor's surface makes it just a little bit harder than one would like.

Btw, has anyone tried the Easter Egg Edition? There are a few additional things you can do, but they're not super easy to find. I even wrote a poem with hints for it, if anyone's interested :D
