I was liking this game up until the moment puzzle. do you realize what a hassle it is to change anything in your setting on a windows 10 operating system? I assumed the puzzles were riddles and in game brain teasers tied in with the things you interacted with not outside effects of your computer controls. why can't you change the in game time or find a clock with the wrong posted time? all clocks have the same time right? weird challenge and threw me right off.

Very nice, makes me reminisce about the old retro games that actually required you to think.

Overall, the difficulty was just right, not too easy nor too difficult.

There are 2 things that I think could've been improved:
-"The Gambler" level was pretty irritating because the answer was really obvious, but it can take a lot of tries to roll it. My suggestion would be to allow the dice to be pushed, that would change the side facing up for each cell traveled.
-I wished that the color of the Books had a consistent meaning. Would've preferred if Blue Books only contained hints to the current level, Black Books only contained hints to future levels, etc.

For those stuck on "The Moment", you have to pull the lever at exactly 12:00/15:00/18:00 (hint on first level). You can cheat your way around this by changing the System Clock :P

An oldie but a goodie.

I think "The Moment" isn't suited very well for a game on a PC. You have to wait until a specific time to open it right? Someone else said this was a mobile game though, so I can see that working a bit better there.

Really, really an excellent game!
A little and precious gem!
