That might have become an interesting game. It has some potential, the idea presented in this journal could be more developed. And it definitely has some bug in it as there is no ending, only the picture of the box with an eye and some tantacles

Okay I'm confused. I followed everything, the puzzles were good, I got and read all 6 pages and followed the instructions and then...nothing. Some tentacles came out of the box and that's it, it just stops? No message, no door, no anything? I'm not sure if it glitched or if the game was uploaded unfinished. I'll give it 2 and a half stars because gameplay to that point was good.

After the box attack you you should get an ending page.

Starts out well, has no ending. Yeah, that's it, sacrifice the eye and ta-da! nothing.

I'm sorry, but how this got 3.5 stars is a mystery to me. The "story" is in no way cohesive, the background journals don't really explain anything, and the "ending" is so abrupt and well... obvious of how bored you got in the end. I'm surprised you felt the need to even upload it. Perhaps you should take some time to reread your story first, because that's the entire point of a point-and-click game: no one's playing because they've "got skills" and plan on showing off about it, they play to read a story and to be a part of it.

Metagaming required to finish

Needs metagaming to get past the spire monster, cannot find the last journal piece
