READ THIS, IT'S IMPORTANT!!!
A lot of people have complained about the controls, mainly because there's an issue that doesn't allows you jump to the left (while running). However, this happens only when you press the left key, up key, and the space bar at the same time.
I really wish I could fix it, but it's not a problem of my script, it's a problem of our keyboards. Here it's better explained: http://board.flashkit.com /board/showthread.php?t=7 89015 (remove the spaces).

You can try different combinations like moving with the arrow keys, running with space and jumping with W, or using ctrl to run instead of the space bar, etc. so you won't have any issue.

Just find a path to the Apple Tree.

Well, I worked really hard on this thing. It should have been released like one month ago, but I'm so damn slow, plus drawing with the mouse is such a pain in the ass.
Lots of things happened during the making of this, and well, just try to enjoy it so much.

I also made two songs only for this thing. If your ears start bleeding at some point of the game, then you are probably hearing one of my songs. They are horribly composed, horribly played, and horribly recorded, but I like them, and I just wanted to put them here.
I also made some sounds too!!! YEAH!!!

-------------------------

I just submited an UPDATE!! It could make all of you arrow lovers happy!!!

-=CONTROLS=-
A or Left arrow = LEFT
D or Right arrow = RIGHT
W or Up arrow = UP
S or Down arrow = CROUCH
SPACE or Ctrl = RUN
MOUSE = INTERACT WITH STUFF (if an object get's brighter when you walk near to it, it means you can click it)
Q = CHANGE THE QUALITY (I recommend you to set it on "medium")

Also, try this, I found it really cool. Walk and crouch with the arrow keys, run with space and jump with W.

-------------------------
-------------------------
----------------------
Depending on what you do during the game, you will get a different ending. It has three different endings (Coward is NOT an ending).

I also added medals to this, but there's still two medals that hasn't been approved yet, so, I'll put the names and descriptions here till they get approved.

Medal 1
-Gray Fox- 25 pts
Neither enemy nor friend

Medal 2
-The Beast of Pirate's Bay- 50 pts
Help the Beast of Pirate's Bay
-------------------------
-------------------------
--------------------

Almost forgot it, I couldn't find a place for the credits in the ending scenes, so, I made an entire room just for them. To reach the credits, just open the closet and click the "CREDITS" poster. Do it!!! They are pretty cool because I added an awesome song in it.
Really, go check them out, you may be surprised.

Ok, I don't know what else to say, and the description is kind of big already, so, just play the game and enjoy it so much or I'll be very mad at you.

And really, THANKS A LOT FOR PLAYING THIS THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!! ! !!!
(Also, sorry if the screen is too big)

Woah!! Daily 3rd!!! THANKS A LOT!!!

Front Page??? That's just too much for me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

Nice

I'm amazed at how intresting this game really is.
I can't help but wonder about each character's background as well as what connections Dolly has with them: e.g. what does the stickman on Dolly's house have to do with her?
I can't help but hope for more of these, so i ask you this:
Will there be a sequel?

Atmospheric Perfection. Beautifully Paced.

You would think that a game that doesn't give you an objective right from the beginning isn't gonna be that interesting... however...

With this game... you are more intrigued about the world you are suddenly presented with. What does this long legged girl have to do with Apples? What exactly is the world she's in like? It makes you want to explore. Makes you almost curious.

Then as you explore this unsettling and psychedelic landscape, you interact with a wide range of characters from the usual friendly greeters to the strange man on the roof who tells you of the strange things he's seem through his telescope. The hypnotic music also lulls you into a strange state of mind.

This game is ridiculously immersive and hauntingly sublime. You actions actually do have some sort of consequence and the good things you do make you wonder whether if it's worth doing them at all.

Oh but the game continues to surprise and entertain with the 4 dreaming mini-games with fantastic music selections and a sense of fun, humor and strangeness that dreams should have.

I'm still wondering about the full meaning of the apples to the Long Legged girl and the "towns people." But it's that kind of opened endedness that stays with you and man is it so well executed here.

Roman Dirge, Jhonen Vasquez, and Tim Burton are definite influences I can tell but you've used your influence to enhance the game's "creepy" design to make the game entirely your own.

As much as I had a bit of trouble adjusting to the "physics" of this game and the controls, that didn't do anything to chip away from the amount of excitement and wonder I had when I played this game.

Congratulations on this beautiful piece of interactive flash gaming.
I hope you continue to put as much passion, effort, and sweat into your works because the pay off is astounding.

(PS: Is my username appearing in the credits purely coincidental? o_o)

Whoa, just whoa.

This is a very curious game, there's a lot of work put into it and you're kind of confused at the beginning, but it gets explained as you move along. It's very interesting, and jeez just the music is a perfect hook. The graphics are subtle, actually, the whole game is! It's amazing, and like many have said this is just fantastic. The medals add a meaning and point to playing the game, and the gamplay and drama overall is fantastic.
This Game surpasses many like it, for these reasons.

This is Why

Games like this one are the reason I joined Newgrounds, and continue to play Flash games. This was amazing. The art was good, better than most I find. The musical selection, and little references were so entertaining as well, especially when I found the one pumpkin I'd missed was the head of the pumpkin king. And the number of things you can do is great. You don't just mindlessly complete your objective, you have little extras to do on the side, and then the "Mini-Games" of your dreams. I love the main character, and the story that I just can't completely figure out. I also find it interesting that she keeps track of the days by her front door. The multiple outcomes are great, and somewhat tragic, depending on your choices. And the expressions, so frightened when she first wakes from dreaming, then so sad. The little touches like glancing behind her before taking out her apple. Amazing work, it is obvious you spent a lot of time on it. I would love to see another game like this in the future. Thank You.
