I got deep into your game and I have feeling I did not discovered all, so I keep follow your profile, to compare what I discovered with you published. :)

Awesome :)

I did not play that much, but I have to admit, I like the portrait of that girl in 14:01 :)

Thank you! Her name is Gabi, she is one of the ghost children. :)

Tell me one thing if I may, plot is based on story from your life, or you just was inspired by movie "What Dreams May Come"? (I know only this movie similar to your game)

I just made up the story while thinking of game plots and characters. Just my imagination.

But you're right it is similar to "What Dreams May Come", that's a very great movie.

True. I love this movie, but in my case... I use some more... abstract pictures :>

I'm in the area with the text lock and I have been typing words for about 20 minutes. Mayhaps I can receive a hint for this lock?

There was a word written in chalk on the wall in another area. Also the answer should be in all caps or else the program won't recognize it as correct </3

Ah that was the first word I tried but it was lowercase. Thank you so much.

Glad you asked! Have fun with the rest of the game :)
