This game was an interesting experiment, I had fun with it. Although I've really wanted to get back into flash there is no way it's ever going to happen. If you do stumble upon this flash I hope enjoy it. I was pleased with the feedback I received. It would have been nice if I could have finished it.

Whoa change your underwear!

OK I am not easy to frighten but that scared the crap out of me so much I even had to take my earphones off for a minute. I was somewhat relieved when I saw in the reviews afterwards that it wasn't just me but everyone (or almost everyone - hardmen excused) else thought similar things. The puzzles also are very well done, although, as you will see below, I do have 3 suggestions for improvements. All in all this is probably the number 1 scariest game I have ever played, and one of the best puzzle games on NG.
For suggested improvements, I only have three small tweaks to mention:
1) The fading shadows were marvelous, really effective and scary...however, I think there was one in almost every room. I personally think that as they are so effective...having them only in a few rooms would have made them a lot more unexpected and potent.
2) The drawer that contained the marbles and piano token was, in my humble opinion, a little too difficult to find, in the end I had to resort to the walkthrough (which I hate having to do - but great idea to put one in) to see what I was doing wrong. Anyhow, perhaps this one is just me not searching thoroughly enough.
3) The end puzzle, very, very good, though it was, I also thought was unfairly hard in one respect - purple. I though the puzzle was in all other respects excellent, only I didn't find it obvious that purple was it was completely omitted from the notes altogether but yet not from the paintings, which, although I see what you have done, suggested that it should still be included in the formula. I think perhaps a subtle suggestion that it shouldn't be used somewhere might just edge it from being one of those 'tear out your hair' puzzles to a good solid endgame cryptic.
Anyhow, just three small suggestions, but it is a fantastic game, I loved playing it.
