If you encounter any of the following bugs, please message us here on Newgrounds so we can help you resolve them:

- Dialogue Text showing up as white instead of black.
- Game Crashing at the beginning (make sure you're allowing flash to save data locally)
- Game freezing during play (try clicking the show/hide button on the top right of the dialogue box, or one of the black checkpoint buttons at the bottom of the dialogue box, or reloading the AutoSave)

How to allow file storage: Right click the game, select settings, click the folder and make sure you have it set to allow local file storage. If you're crashing at the start this is probably the cause.

good game but where can I play day 2

DuskyHallows responds:

Hi! You can download and play the latest free version from Itch: https://duskyhallows.itch.io/sanguine-rose

Which is 3 days of content and wraps up the story. We also have a version of the full 3 days here on Newgrounds but it doesn't run as well and has to be muted for technical reasons: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/731272

Great game with lots of personality, good music used, and an interesting story. Crow is my favorite!

I love everything about this game so far. There's a lot of choice and directions the story can go, the art is beautiful, the characters are charming and the music brings it all together nicely. I can't wait to see more.

Keep up the good work

i just love the art style! it's like an old pencil sketching but colorized.
