This was a lovely twee (in a good way) adventure which actually packs in quite an amount of diverse puzzles and interfaces! Given the short development time it's quite an achievement!

I particularly liked the:

Thank you for the comment! It's such a relief to hear that you liked it, I wasn't sure how it would go down with people that I'm not related to! (laugh)

Lovely game! Nice clean graphics and lovely music. Took me about 40 minutes to complete.

I was really glad that I could skip the heads up/down puzzle after a while :)
The game has a rare example of a maze in an adventure game that was actually fun (and the footprints were a nice idea)

I just played this game now and I'm glad I did!

- Graphics, music and sound effects give the game a very complete and polished look and really contribute to the experience
- The story plot fit well with the duration of the gameplay. Like Cat, it took me about 40 minutes to complete
- As others have commented, I am very impressed by the variety of puzzles in the game. None of them were really difficult so the game was never stale or frustrating. This may appeal to newer players or players who find more challenging games to be frustrating.
- I give credit for the creativity aspect as well.

Overall a delightful game that anyone who has not yet played will enjoy.

Good job!
