nolwenn said...

huh, what's the point with all those clothes?

palat said...

you need those clothes! for example the boots to walk the water. you can access the clothes inventory by clicking the girl

Anonymous said...

dumb and ugly

AJ said...

Nice to see you're brave enough to make degrading comments without actually being anonymous...

Lichen Fairy said...

I like this. It's very surreal, and I love its complexity.

I'm a little stuck though, lol!

beth said...

Im alot stuck!!!!

Lichen Fairy said...

Where are you stuck? I think I'm nearly done.

AJ said...

This is a very bizarre game. I don't think I've played anything quite like it. Interesting concept of actually seeing the movie in youtube after clicking on the tv's. Makes you think about which clothes you need to wear to solve the different puzzles. Thanks Bart.

AJ said...

Also, if you click on the little flag down in the bottom right corner, it changes the language to english...

Anonymous said...

How do you get past the two monsters whose heads come out of the ground? One of them keeps knocking me back. Like the game though. Thanks, Bart. :D

AJ said...

@ Anonymous... do you have the sunflower hat? As it looks like straw and the two wormy guys like straw...

AJ said...

Argh!! Slider puzzle at the end is a bit difficult.

thieungukinhnien said...

I don't know what to do with the one who remove her head.

Lichen Fairy said...

thieungukinhnien: Keep clicking her body so that she keeps her head in the air. When the creature on the roof wakes up, click it in between clicking the girl's body so that it doesn't knock the head off-course.

Anonymous said...

@AJ Where do you get the sunflower hat from? I don't have it.

Lichen Fairy said...

Just finished. It's a really good game. I would recommend playing it to the end.

Anonymous: I can't remember where the straw hat is. Try exploring and finishing some of the puzzles.

Anonymous said...

anonymous: look in the house for the straw hat. gotta get the guy on the 2nd floor to move somehow.
cant figure out how to get past the mice.

Fern said...

woo just finished i think :P nice gae, good artwork, infuriating slider puzzle though :( apart from that, very thoughtful and pretty game :D and yes i know smiley overload

moooh said...

Great game, I love the surrealistic touch to it. Got stuck awhile near the end, was missing a white body. Apparently I had missed a loost tile on the roof. Fun addition of the bonus items at the end.

Tea said...

Anonymous - to get past the mice, you have to look like something, that mice might be afraid of

@ Lichen Fairy: thank you! I got that one.

I can't find the straw hat!! I'm so confused lol

Anonymous said...

Absolutely the best adventure!

Anonymous said...

what is with the puzzle at the top of the spikey hill? cant figure it out

AJ said...

Straw hat... to get into the house you need to be wearing a blue shirt. The guys are mirror twins, so everything on the top floor needs to be a mirror, or oppostie of the guys downstairs. When you get it right, he will follow you back downstairs. Go back up and the hat is hanging on a hook.

The other part I had problems with was where the scientist is trying to light a cigarette. Think of the old game 'mastermind', where you have to guess the places of the different colours.

The world is circular, left ends up at the door and right ends up at the door. The guy at the door is measuring height. Are you tall enough?

Anonymous said...

never mind. i figured it out

AJ said...

The puzzle at the top of the hill (for those who are having trouble) is a 'follow the sequence' game. It might pay to have a pen and paper handy to jot down the last sequence, as it gets faster.

Anonymous said...

what is the deal with the giant?

Thijs said...

This game is incredible. And sooo long. The slider puzzle took forever and I was expecting end credits but there's even more.

Anonymous said...

i am missing 1 hat. the one that goes next to the apple at the end of the row. where is it?

AJ said...

@ anonymous... the giants head is where you end up after you go for a ride in the rocket.

Cannot help with the hat, as that's the only item I'm missing. Sorry.

DON'T use the eraser... it does just that! :)

Anonymous said...

What's left to be done after the slide puzzle? It's night, I have all the items, and... I'm stuck! Is it over?


The last "hat" is a red bow. It's in the area where the giant used to occupy.

Dinko Deeness said...

After the slider puzzle you can look around for some bonus items. There doesn't appear to be any more puzzles to solve, the items aren't really hidden. It doesn't further the game's story line at all.

Margaret said...

This is a very odd game, but immensely entertaining! I like how the logic is: very unique.

Anonymous said...

im stuck at the fish i cant find the cat ears either

Anonymous said...

Any suggestions how to do the memory game? Finding the matching pairs behind the posters on the house.
It resets after a mistake, and u have to start all over again, slightly frustrating >.<

Anonymous said...

ANd what about the monster u have to drop stuff (lanterns?) on? What sequence is there?

Lichen Fairy said...

Hints:

the fish is made of water, therefore you need to be able to swim

the sequence for the lanterns is found in the scene left of there, next to the house

I can't give any help for the pairs game, just use instinct and you'll probably eventually get it.

Clea said...

Anonymous : Keep on trying with the memory game. Of course you have to have a good memory, but also a bit of luck, because you start over if you do 3 mistakes.

I can't find the cat ears, I don't have a clue how to do the slider puzzle, and I don't know where the "puzzle on top of the hill" is meant to be. Help please :S

Clea said...

Found the cat ears (and body and paws). The apple hat is a nice reference to Magritte :) How do you get to walk on the spikes? And what am I supposed to do with the monster and the bees?

Clea said...

Never mind. Ate the bees, and got propper shoes.

Lilian said...

Wow, I am kinda amazed. This game is so great, I loved it! So bizarre, beautiful.

I've finished it <3
I wished there were more games like this.

Anonymous said...

Couldn't be more stuck on the slider puzzle. Any possibility of help or a walkthrough for this bit?

Lichen Fairy said...

I tried to make a video walkthrough - twice - but it didn't work.

For the slider puzzle: try getting the bottom layer completed first and working your way up. The blank spot is in the row above the bottom.

Shelby said...

i dont get why there are those 1 eyed and nine eyed monsters on top of the house?

and do you need the salior suit to swim?

Shelby said...

is it the
knitted hat
cherry shirt
orange boots?

or

knitted hat
red stripey shirt
red boots next to the orange boots???

im really confused plz help me??!!

Lichen Fairy said...

The nine eyes need to all be the colour of the one eye.

Solution: click the corners, then the outside middle ones, then the centre one.

To swim you need a buoyancy aid.

Anonymous said...

Tip for the slider puzzle:

Make a screenshot of the picture before starting.

=D

Nevermore said...

I really enjoyed this game... until that stupid slider puzzle. Man, I hate that I have to get past this thing. I don't like them. I guess that will be the end of this for me.
Real cute up 'til then.

jana said...

where are those damn catears??
could anyone give me the link to the video-walkthrough??

Anonymous said...

Hey!
I'm kinda stuck :P
What am I supposed to wear to get taller?

Anonymous said...

Never mind :-) got it

Anonymous said...

Can someone tell me where I can find the cat ears?

Anonymous said...

I can't find an orange hat! Somebody knows where to find it?

Clea said...

To find the cat ears, you have to solve the puzzle with the monsters and the 9 eyes, on the roff of the house (go left once upstairs)

CG said...

how do you get the blue shirt for the house??

Lichen Fairy said...

I think the orange hat (a pumpkin head) is near the fish, hiding behind a chain.

Lichen Fairy said...

Blue dress comes from bouncy head girl. (sorry if my writing's deteriorated, it's getting very late here)

CG said...

haha, well, i figured, except i don't know how to get it from her :s

Lichen Fairy said...

I managed to trek through all the comments to find something I wrote before so you didn't have to find it yourself:

Keep clicking her body so that she keeps her head in the air. When the creature on the roof wakes up, click it in between clicking the girl's body so that it doesn't knock the head off-course.

Hope that helps.

CG said...

ooh thank you so much :)

Von said...

Can someone help? I can't access youtube from where I am. Would someone be able to summarise just the information that you get from the youtube videos??

I've tried to have a look through the comments but there are too many other clues that I don't want (just yet anyways!)

Thank you!

Lichen Fairy said...

The videos contain no important information, they're just really, really surreal. They're a sort of extra content thing that doesn't have anything to do with the game.

CG said...

can't find the yellow dress/shirt :(

Von said...

Thanks a lot Lichen Fairy. I think I misunderstood AJ's earlier comment which I thought suggested that the videos made you think which clothes you needed to solve different puzzles. Back to it I guess! Thanks again!

Lichen Fairy said...

CG: yellow one is the cat suit. I think it comes from high up. Sorry I can't be a better help.

Anonymous said...

Can anyone give a clue as to the rocket? I've dressed to the colors of the light pole but it doesn't work. I'm missing last dress could that be it?

matt w said...

Cool game but it really really really needs a save function. (Apologies if I've overlooked it.)

matt w said...

Ah it autosaves your items (but resets the puzzles). Now where are those monsters on the roof? And what do I do with the scientist guy next to the rocket?

Coffeeteamix said...

tricks for doing the sliding puzzle:
#1 take a screenshot of it right before it breaks apart. You can tell it's going to happen by the crack marks forming. It happens right after she sticks her legs out straight.

#2 If you don't think you can manage to react fast enough to take a pic right before it breaks, then just take it any other time before it breaks. Any reference is good.

#3 Note that the "missing piece" is where her legs are supposed to me, which is pretty much in the middle of the puzzle.

#4 When reconstructing the puzzle, I imagine it as a coiled snake. So I imagine myself coiling the snake and adding pieces to it as I go.

#5 There are a number of ways to envision this snake analogy (I think). The way I did this was to go clockwise. So first, I find the piece that should be at bottom right and position it somewhere along the bottom edge. Then I find the piece that should go right above it and position it counter-clockwise to my 1st piece. Then I find the piece that should be above my 2nd piece and position it counter-clockwise to my 2nd piece. I keep doing this all the way up the right edge of the puzzle, then right to left across the top, then top to bottom along left edge, then left to right along bottom edge minus bottom right piece, then up two pieces, then left 1 piece.

order in which to find the pieces:

< ----^
|       |
|  --^ |
| M | |
|     | |
v--->  S

where M stands for "missing piece"; S stands for "starting piece"; arrows and v indicate direction

The reason I called this the "clockwise" method is because if I find it hard to position my next piece, I move all organized pieces in a clockwise direction to make room for the new piece. Also, in the end you may find your solution slightly off. Just keep moving all your pieces in a clockwise position until they fit. Be smart about it though ^^; keep in mind that a few of the pieces "coil in".

Not sure if there's any luck involved in this method... but I remember I used to use this method every week when I volunteered at a nursery... and I can't remember a time when it didn't work ^^; And I just solved this one using this method... so yeah ^^;

Sorry it's so complicated to explain though ^^;;

Coffeeteamix said...

Scientist puzzle is like MasterMind, just easier.

For people who know how to play MasterMind and wondering why "easier": it tells you position of error and there's only "right or wrong", no "right colour, wrong position" or anything.

For people who does not know how to play MasterMind: Just put in the 6 pieces any way you like, but try to have some order so you remember which is which. When you're done, the robot's face would light up. There are 6 lights on the face, each light can be red or green and represents each of the 6 slots for the pieces of the puzzle. If the light is green, that position is correct. If the light is red, that position is incorrect. Now try again using the information you just got.

@ Anonymous with rocket question: are you entering the rocket after you changed?

To answer my own question earlier about what is a pink "shirt", you get it after you play the "memory play back" game on top of the spikey hill~

Finished game, but still missing 1 shirt + 1 pair of shoes O_O

Obsidrian said...

How do you get across the ledge with the flying magnet-looking monster?

Lichen Fairy said...

to use the magnet fly you need to get the metal jacket from the robot

to open the rocket you need to switch three things. There is a red light at the top of the space in between, an unconnected cable at the bottom, and a sort of switch type thing in between. You need to change your clothes so that you are matching the colour wheel, then go inside the rocket.

horrorshow said...

Wow, what a nice game. I really love the graphics & the difficulty is not to hard.

But I don't have any Sound. Does somebody else have the same problem?
Or is there sound in this game at all?

Lichen Fairy said...

no sound as far as I know

lollypop said...

i cant see a 9 eyed monster on the roof!! and what do all the pictures there mean?

Anonymous said...

Grat gam! Great Blog! Great games you make!

Csani said...

Please help! Where are the blue shoes? And I cant find the last hat.

Lichen Fairy said...

lollypop: The nine eyed monster is after the magnet fly. The pictures are just illustrations, extra content.

Csani: the blue shoes are actually stripey socks. The last hat isn't until after the slider puzzle.

Anonymous said...

Missing a white dress/costume/shirt for the rocket !!! Please, where can I find it ?

Brittany said...

Where is the slider puzzle? Am I just having a blonde moment?

Zenrage said...

The final head piece is behind the third gravestone after you solve the slider puzzle.

I think what happened is that the girl (giant) and her family were killed in a car crash and what remained of her was trapped until her beloved doll came to rescue her.

Lichen Fairy said...

the slider puzzle comes after the rocket is completed

alexis said...

how do i get tallerrrrrr
i tried the hats but they dnt seem to work :[
shoes dnt help either
ahhhh im so fdjskflj plz helpppp
nd whats with the pictures on top of the roof?

Coffeeteamix said...

@ alexis: you get taller using a top hat! =) i THINK that was on the scene with the tombstones and feet of giant girl..
Don't worry too much if you can't get it though. The world is round here, you can get through from the other side =)

The pictures on the roof i THINK are just samples of the artist's artwork. Just like the videos on the 2nd screen or something, that was just a sample of the artist's work I think. Although on both these two pages you should find articles of clothing...

Lichen Fairy said...

white top is behind some tiles when you first get on to the roof

lollipop said...

and how do i get into the rocket?

lollipop said...

oh, its alright, i got it on my own :)

Someone(haha) said...

aw this is Such a good game! IT took me over 2 days to finish, but AWWWWWW! i love the little dolly! so cute! <:-D

Anonymous said...

hm ok how do you gat to the slider puzzle? i cannot find it at all

Lichen Fairy said...

Like I said before, the slider puzzle isn't until after you finish the rocket.

I really wish someone would post a video walkthrough I've tried 4 times, I even downloaded a new programme, but it just isn't working.

Anonymous said...

how do u get past the spikes and where are the blue shoes?

Lichen Fairy said...

For the spikes you need the metal shoes from the fly catcher.

The blue "shoes" are the socks that the lantern monster gives you after you feed it.

And I'm getting a little tired of answering the same questions again and again. I know I don't have to but I like giving people help. And I know it's a lot to ask people to trek through over a hundred comments to try and find their answer so I suppose I'll just have to keep answering.

I'm stuck in the house, can't get the twin on the upper floor to be the opposite. Pictures are mirrored, the light is off the balls of yarn: pink outside purple inside clock is mirrored and i've tried both with smoking and drinking.. he won't follow me, what am I doing wrong?!

Coffeeteamix said...

@ Erna: I tried again last night, it seems like he has fixed the light thing in the twin puzzle. People were complaining that in a real mirror image, the light would not be off in one. As of last night, turning on the light works =)

Coffeeteamix said...

I made a video walkthrough, but it was too long so I'll have to edit it tomorrow =(

This is the slider puzzle part though:

Anna said...

Maybe I'm blind, but I don't get the puzzle with the 9 eyed monster... what to do? I'm guessing it has something to do with the eyes, like closing the all? I just don't get it.. Help anyone?

Also saw someone asking about a save function... Eno says that everything is automatically saved, you can reload page and everything it says.... I, accidentally, closed all windows on my browser and I had to start again..

Lichen Fairy said...

You have to get all nine eyes red. Click the corners, then the sides, then the middle.
