UPDATE: The bug with the tiny font has been fixed. I forgot to embed the fonts... <.<

A point and click game where the main objectives were to create nice graphics, a good story and have it all controlled via the mouse.

If you don't have a mouse wheel, you can use the space bar, however.

Instructions are in game. Roll over the "?" button in the bottom right hand corner.

Very cool graphics and audio... sets the mood really well. I like the subtle gradient effect around your character.

I couldn't figure out how to open the gate. The puzzles are too obscure, it's hard to even see what I can click on since everything is grey. I got annoyed and gave up.

Yes, I do agree there. I struggled to think of a decent puzzle. Thanks for playing, anyway!

Gorgeous on the eyes and ears, so I think you guys met your goal. :) Sightly on the frustrating side, but a pretty sweet experience nonetheless.

I'm not a fan of the player sprite, but the rest of the graphics are really nice. The grey colour scheme and the sounds really help to set the mood.

I eventually managed to beat it (with both kitten coins), but it took a while to figure out what to do. It's difficult to tell what things can be picked up or used. The descriptions of the items you need are vague (for example, the gate's description makes it seem like you could just use the rod on it) which doesn't help.

Please provide a direct link to a decent sized version, on kongregate, it's too tiny to be playable. I had to fish for the SWF in the page source so I could play it while actually seeing anything.

The game seems nicely done but colors would have been 100x better. I got bored not knowing what to do after a while, it should be more clear what you can interact with.

Maybe I'm just stupid, but I wasn't even able to figure out how to use the iron rod. Nothing seemed clickable and it only told me I needed a long sturdy object. Am I missing something here?

A short but very sweet game. You managed to achieve a very nice mood. I didn't find the puzzles that obscure as some of the previous comments.

One suggestion I would make is to make the doors more ... doorly. Midway through the game kinda you get used to it, but still.

Thanks!

Cool graphics and sound, but the interactions are harder than they should be. How do you use the rod in the gate? When I clicked it the guy just walked to the right.
