Hi everyone. This was probably one of the most personal projects I've done in a long time. I had a lot of things I needed to deal with, and a game seemed like a constructive way to do so. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Stay tuned for Chapter 2!

As always, a huge special thanks to Hania. She continues to be amazing to collaborate with, and her work is always inspiring. Thanks to Evil-Dog too, for graciously allowing me to use Outbreak.

- Mike

Update: Thanks for the front page

Very nice work here

The puzzles weren't so hard but just right. They can be solved by grinding. Nice storyline. Maybe more character lines can be put in those npc? Can't wait for part 2. 9/10 5/5 Awsome game! Epic music for the setting!!!

[Spoiler alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!] Hint:
1. The blinking 'letter' starts the 'first' puzzle
2. Directions are found in the letter
3. ?+?=4
4. By colour from the soup

Thanks, in the next one I will probably make a dialog system for the NPCs so you can talk to them. I wasn't sure if I wanted one or not, but I'm leaning towards it now.

Good but a few problems

I liked the setting of this game and the style looks cool too. I have a few problems, though. I think that the pointer controls are a bit slow and also the puzzles don't have much of a logical process to answer ie What Is The Correct Answer? The answer can be found but it can only be answered through trial and error. If there were puzzles where several different thought processes could be used so lots of people will get the same answer, but they all can use different methods. That would be a cool puzzle game.

since my machine is slow on flash related things even with updates. all in all a great game
makes me wonder about that last (evil) puzzle. it feels like shes a ghost from the past he wont let go.

Very promising series [spoilery review]

The music was terrific, the graphics were fitting, the atmosphere went well. The story seems interesting, and it looks like the sequels are going to be coherent, so the series as a whole seems promising.

However, the puzzles seemed a bit random to solve (how should I guess that the flickering C means only those objects that begin with a c should be lit up?). The clues could be a little more direct, or some objects may be clickable everywhere, such as light switches (this would make White Darkness easier to guess).
The pointer was also slow to respond at times, and the game sometimes devolved into pixel-hunting.

Also, "Goat-Box"? Is that the best you could come up with for runes?? :D
