I'm stuck on the part with the rope. I have Arrow, the hunting rifle, and the hunting knife. Please help me to get past this part. For now, 4 stars.

That with the colored skulls does not work for me!, .. in the right order and number of mouse clicks, ... just does not work

Is ok game, I wish there was a 3rd ending in both ending you die and where is the U/Oracle Medal can't find it even in Walkthrough it is not there I intially thought it was 3rd ending apparently not. Would loike to know Oracle medal.

Honestly, I really liked this. The atmosphere was great, the art was aesthetically pleasing, the game was easy to navigate and the puzzles weren't impossible/ridiculously complex. I have to agree with Peruraptor on the magic orb thing was a bit of a letdown and pretty out of place. There's only one thing that I really don't like about the game and that is that Arrow dies lol
Poor dog had no idea he was being dragged into a demonic murderfest :P But other than that, I really liked everything :D


The atmosphere at the beginning of this game is superb, one of the creepiest experiences I've ever had in a game, instantly hooking me with eerie forest watched over by a malevolent spirit. The wolf jumpscare is also pretty effective. However, once you get across the lake the game begins to lose its effectiveness, with the evil eyes peeking out of the forest and keypad to get into the cave taking away from the more subtle feeling the game had had before. It also moves far more quickly than I feel served the atmosphere properly. You get across the river, go in the cave, get up to the top, and after a bear fight summon the Elk King. When I first started this game I thought the atmosphere would steadily ramp up over a prolonged period of time as you hike through the woods to the top of the mountain, your character gradually spiraling into madness as the forest claims them. Having the Elk King summoned by a random magical orb also seems to conflict with the atmosphere: it gives too much control to your character and shatters the illusion that they may come across it at any point while venturing into the unknown, that once they crossed the lake there was no escaping its domain alive. It would have been better to have the Elk King show up unexpectedly, not necessarily as a jumpscare, but in a similar manner to your first glimpse of once you exit the cave. The Elk King's appearance was also a letdown: a deer with red eyes and a painted face. A more etherial, shadowy presence, possibly only seen from a distance, may have fit better with the buildup. An alternative to make the Elk King something totally unearthly/bizarre, a nightmare creature with only the vaguest likeness of an Elk. Such an appearance might better fit with the otherworldly presence it was established as at the beginning of the game.
