The game is fun, but it is so vague that it's nearly impossible to know what to do.

doesn't save data for me nor unlock medals

making a review because the game's quite confusing if you don't know what you're doing:

for starters, to unlock the hide ability you need to lure a human to the monkey to force it to hide itself. this will allow you to get most of the other abilities like float, trap etc.

to "tile" the floor, you need to cover it in traps then interact with the chupacabra.
to "complete the pit circle", you need to place a trap where a pit would be needed, then lure something else onto it (a human is easiest).

whenever you die or fall into a pit, both drumsticks for the sasquatch quest respawn.
i haven't encountered the bug where you're unable to collect items if you get more than two of these, but i would recommend watching out about it and making sure you aren't collecting either of them more than once.
moreover, the reward from the sasquatch quest is palette swap, which can already be done even without the item by pressing P.

to complete the game, you need to collect another 5 livers from humans after clearing the final quest to trigger the cutscene on the nest. for some reason the dialogue you get before clearing the quest resets after completing it the first time.
it's possible that the medal for completing the game only unlocks if the final quest is completed "correctly".

the map medal doesn't seem to unlock, no matter how many times i collect the map.
turns out there's more than one location where you can collect the map; my guess is that only one of those triggers the map medal.
so far i've found 4 different map locations:
- near the sign that warns about cryptid appearances;
- to the right of the shed near the farm, where the hat is located;
- below the pit where the party is held, somewhat hidden behind a tree in the corner;
- using the secret exit in the goatman's maze, in front of the "entrance" (before it resets to the actual maze exit).

none of these triggered the medal for me, so there's either an extra location, or something wrong on my side which i can't explain.

i may be dumb but i do not get some things and there's no walkthroughs
