SUPER EDIT: The long awaited sequel is now released! If you enjoyed this game, make sure to check it out:


EDIT: Thanks for the frontpage, Tom!

A game about playing with letters, as the title gives away.
The game is as much about the story as it is of the gameplay.



- Enter to fast forward to the next line or to test an answer

- Backspace to skip to the end of a letter, or to delete written text

- Z to proceed

Some of the levels might be a bit difficult, especially the first real one. In most cases, there will be an important hint in the title of each letter.
Remember, some of the words and sentences have underlying meanings.

I would appreciate it if no walkthroughs were written in the reviews.

EDIT: Whoo! Daily 4th place :3

Okay. A ton of people have wanted to know about the secret ending. I have thus far messaged all those people and told them how to find it. However, I figured out an alternate way.
All the people that have beaten the game normally can find an explanation for the secret ending here, as a little extra treat:

The password is the same as the password to beat the game. Only lower case letters, space included (you have to download the document from the link, as it's no longer viewable online).


Thank you for playing, and please enjoy the ride!

Loved it. but anatomy 101 says that a certain clue should be blue and red not black and red. when it is inside it is non aerated and therefore BLUE. once air gets into it, it becomes red.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks! And yes, I suppose that might be true!

This game is impressive. Simple but straight to the point, kind of a short, minimalist In Memoriam (without the e-mails). I love this. And now, to the sequel!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for playing! I too tend to like shorter games, especially if they're still able to have an impact :)


How is the answer to the riddle a solid and black? That doesn't make sense considering what the it is made of, the "liquid" isn't red, but the "creatures" floating in it are. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the "fluid" colorless? I see how you could say it is a solid because it can congeal, and when dried does appear sort of black. But by that logic you could also say that fire is green because when you mix it with phosphorous it turns green. So am I just missing something? I had to consult a walkthrough for that one because of those two details (black and solid).

That said this is a great example of what a puzzle game should be like, the answers all made sense rather than being nonsensical random answers. *cough* *cough* *cube escape* *cough* *cough*

P.S. Did anyone else notice that the last input before you unscramble it describes his first kill?

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for your feedback! I think the riddle could've been handled smoother indeed. I'm very happy that you enjoyed the game, for the most part!

perfect ending

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you, and thanks for playing!

Very good, though the beginning, the answer needing to be without a space, threw me off. Likewise I never did enjoy being taunted. I'm sensitive that way.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks for playing, and sorry for being late in responding to your review!
