I switched from Chrome to Firefox & it worked.
I am fairly lost & don't know what to do.
I ran out of time for now.

Chrome works fine.
I figured out most of it.
Can't get the song right.
click,bong,ding,rustle,bong,ring,click?
I assume that gets me another black box.
Still need 2 more to get the key.

Song is between clicks:
Bang,ding,rustle,bong,ring.
I had forgot to look up after riding the fish.
Also forgot about the tunnel side door.

I plus the rest of us who follow Bart and probably Bart himself will, I'm sure, be very pleased to hear of those that you find

This is a terribly funny game.

This one was not that good for me at least. I don't know if I lack of some artistic point of view but the reality, again -for me-, is that the game is not accessible, or easy readable, let alone understandable. I came to the comment section to see different reactions to it but I think the overall reaction is the one of... a tiny - not to be harsh - tiny dissapointment.

I can't follow the logic of this game at all, but I love the atmosphere! I'm a sucker for surrealism, whether it has any logic to its surreal environment or not.

I'm very proud of myself for figuring out the sound sequence puzzle, even though I haven't the faintest clue what I got or what it should be used for. That's the only progress I made as far as I can tell...

everyone is saying there is a sound sequence puzzle, I played the whole thing without sound... how.

yeah, that was...not good.

Not sure if it's intentional, but you can use the bed -> tears -> cup to get multiple black boxes.

I never figured out what to do about the guy with the box in his chest nor the bookcase of boxes.

We couldn't make any sense of it. We seem to have acquired some items, but there's no way to access an inventory. And... there are puzzles? Someone please tell us where the first one is. Maybe we can get the idea from that.

I liked it.
I felt a little lost at first, but like most games without instructions I could figure out what I was supposed to do by clicking around. It's not really puzzles so much as exploration, and some finding and using items. The inventory system, that doesn't actually show an inventory, was unusual, but the use of items was not necessarily logical at all points so not having to pick which items to use was, in my opinion, a plus (still, showing what items you had would've been better). Although the use of items wasn't always logical, since there were so few things in any given place you could usually guess what you were able to interact with. There were also small clues here and there, such as the book showing you to put black boxes in that one device and that there was a box on the right side of the ocean, or the one image of the empty cup filling up.
The lack of clear instructions and path leads the player to have to explore on their own, and I think fits with the theme better than something without some confusion.

Wound up going in circles. Will revisit when I'm feeling more creatively venturesome.
