There is a new version of the forums ready for testing. Please post here if you're willing to help test! We could also use the help of coders!

The download link on the AGS Games page delivers an empty box, hence it's been downloaded zero times. That's a shame because it's a great game that most users are missing out, and you can't even report the link as broken.

Naa, perhaps not. The link goes directly to itch.io, not to the completed games page

Yes, the link on THIS page goes to itch, but if you go to AGS games you cannot get this game. If I was the author I'd want to correct that.

any chance you compile the game for linux too?
It is just another checkbox in the general settings and uploading another folder

I will do that, Sir! I have no means of testing the game on Linux, which is why I did not include a Linux build. I hope it is as basic to install and run on Linux, though. There will be a Linux upload soon, stand by.


thanks, I finally managed to come around to it and did beat it. That was fun, though some puzzles were mean, but that is where the fun it :)

and I recorded that as longplay :)

I downloaded the game the other day and was enjoying it very much. However, I died at a particular point and the 'load game' dialogue came up but there were no saves to choose from even though I had saved the game several times before this point. Is this a bug or a feature?

Nice logic puzzles. I just wish a story was unveiled to reward my progress.

Spoiler: ShowHide
As in Selmiak's video, I got the normal ending after I drank coffee. The secluded room makes me wonder if there's a way out. Yet I haven't found anything to dig through the rubble or break the door down. By the end of the game, I only have 3 plastic eggs

The loading menu in the game over screen doesn't work. However when you die, you can restart and load your game from the title screen.

Ending/eggs:

There isn't a way out, Reiter says. That's just a hint to make the story in the player's mind, so there is only one ending. But there are four eggs to find.

Oh right, I missed the first page of this thread. I suspected it was so but in this kind of games we're so accustomed to things being there for a reason that a useless room struck me as odd.
