To be honest, UKZ sent me a PM with the solution but I guess opening a Tips and Hints thread is not a bad idea :)

Intresting game with good graphics. Most problems were already pointed out by others, so I won't repeat them here.

But I do have a question, concerning a puzzle at the end, so spoilers:

Spoiler: ShowHide
The code for the safe. It was clear that the code was the year the painting was created. That's straightforward enough. But was there anywhere a hint when this was? When I look at it, Jonathan just wonders when it was painted, I can't talk to anybody else, I couldn't find any other items in this section. Am I, as the player, really just supposed to know this? I ended up googling, but that would be really bad design. Requiering an internet connection to solve a puzzle is not a good idea. So, did I miss something?

Hi Sinitrena! Thank you for playing my game.

You didn't miss anything.  I'm sorry. Just like you thought, it's the puzzle that needed outside information.
I thought it would be easy to search because the internet is a common environment in South Korea(my country).

Whatever the reason may be, I don't think it was good to make puzzles using external information.

I'm not planning to put this kind of puzzle in the next project. Thank you for enjoying the game!

what can I say, finally I fought my way through all the slimy insects and also completed this cool game. But only after playing content, that really got me into it. I want more UKZ!

And of course I recorded it:
