i went across the stair case that was broken with the stick and the butcher's knife to the safe and i idk what to do from that point. im confused.

Items I have:Stick,Cleaver,Rope

There's more rope stuck in the swamp.

Made it to the key locked door but don't know how to proceed.

The design is okay but navigating and "hot spots" are fickle. Click the wrong thing and you're in the next screen. Quotation screens need to be closed with a click as well.

I'll wait for hints.

Use the stick on the locked door.

"stick on the locked door"

That makes sense :|

Jack said...

Well that was short.

Like a Lovecraft inspired Minoto game.

So I guess I'm the only one that can't play this - it just endlessly loads for me.

Real Gothic atmosphere, but for the rest the interface is the toughest puzzle to solve.

and the song at the end really fits it's the same as the opening of Elfen-Lied (song name lilium)

very well done :)
