The linux build does not start.

$ ./WhereAreMyKeys.x86
Set current directory to /tmp/WhereAreMyKeys-Linux
Found path: /tmp/WhereAreMyKeys-Linux/WhereAreMyKeys.x86
Unable to load mono library from /tmp/WhereAreMyKeys-Linux/WhereAreMyKeys_Data/Mono (x86)
Failed to load mono

There actually is a folder named "Mono" but no "Mono (x86)". Copying or linking "Mono" to "Mono (x86)" does not make it work, just displaying the same message again.

Great idea, one of the most original ones I've seen in this jam.

What an ending! The gameplay might've needed just something more, maybe Magda should've also gotten her coat etc. before leaving. Also the controls left something to be desired, felt more like ice skating than guiding an elderly lady around.

The mood and aesthetic were lovely though. Great experience.

Of, forgot to mention: When running the game fullscreen at 1280x1024 resolution I couldn't see the whole instruction image, the sides were cut out. Probably due to the aspect ratio.

Great atmosphere and music, more an experience than a game I would say! Could be a nice intro for an adventure game in fact. Well done :)

Nice graphics and music, gives an interesting atmosphere overall. But I don't know if I missed something but the game way really easy, I just walked to some drawer, got the keys and went to the door, but there was no challenge at all.
