Hello! Thanks for making this game. Loved the different atmospheres and the bug metaphor for human experiences. The only critique I'd say is some of the sound effects spike really loudly. Otherwise, loved it! I posted a YouTube playthrough.

Very cool game! I love the awkward, humoristic, and metaphorical ambiance. Puzzles are smart. Their is a lot of details and a background that make me want to know more about :)

Hi, can you please help me? I really want to play your game, but when I run game, all I got is black screen and cursor.
I tried to run it as administrator, it didn't help.
(windows 8)

That’s very strange, haven’t encountered that. And when you restarted the game, the same thing happened? Can you confirm that you exported and installed all the games files to your programs 86 directory, and not the normal programs directory?

Yeah. I tried to reinstall, tried to just wait (10 minutes), but it's same black screen.
Here is screenshot of folder with the game

im sorry you’re having trouble with it! My only other recommendation would be, try installing it to the normal programs (not programs 86) directory and see if that fares better. Does the game load at all? Usually it takes a few to boot after running the program

I got it working on another pc!

Thanks for answering me :>

this game is brilliant. i was sorely lacking in strange otherworldly point and clicks until i picked this up.


This game is absolutely wonderful. Nails the Myst aesthetic while also being endearingly weird.
