It's great except one thing: I can't get into the room with the barrels. It won't let me enter the combination like it says in the walkthrough. Has anyone else had this problem? And what should I do?

Edit: Nvm, got it. It was really hard to find the right spot though.

Edit 2: I can't find part 2. Is there a link to that somewhere?

Was pretty fun. Unique and interesting..having to backtrack a few times may be tedious to some, but it was pretty worth it to see the ending.

Hi there,

& classified as "Point'n click" ? i may have missed something ;)

It's a point 'n click in spirit!

Really fun game! I wasn't able to finish it though because I got stuck in a circle of barrels in one of the rooms. My guess is I was never supposed to be able to enter it but somehow did and now cannot get out. :C. RIP

A very nice game, rather logical most of the way, although I did get stuck near the end - that was because I needed items which were hidden in regular-looking rocks and such, or didn't notice a small object I could interact with. I don't mind the graphics being rather basic, it's just not good for pixel hunting... The music is atmospheric and adds nicely.
