The silver key DOES do something. When you figure out what you'll know wich exit you should plank.
For further information, read Snufalufagus' comment (4 before me).
I loved this. It was definitely a unique concept to the escape thing (and yet quite the opposite). I do agree with everyone else please make the lighting a little better. While it wasn't hard to spot the items it was a pain to actually notice the piece of meat. The other issue was it took a bit to actually notice the little latch on the window that needed to be clicked to lock it. I must've hit it a few times during previous playthroughs but then started getting "the window was easy to open as it wasn't locked" and was like "wtf how do i lock it" and had to look at the walkthrough JUST for that.
I did like how all the items were simple to find and the puzzle was keeping him from escaping. Though I do agree the golden key was kinda a lucky click spot (i figured it was somewhere in the area and found it my first playthrough. Was just kinda hard).
Great game though would love to see another one of these.
This game is, surprisingly, really good for just a pixelated point-and-click. Had a little trouble first time, then found out what the axe was for. Good job!
Chain is on the roof, outside, for those who didnt know.
The recipe was found. But still a riddle. Too difficult x( but otherwise, great game!
