Very beautiful artwork for a generally impactful entry in terms of mood. While this entailed an assortment of puzzles, none of the puzzles were particularly innovative. I furthermore admit to being unsure whether the tone of some bits of dialogue truly lived up to the tone of the game overall.

The idea of choice at the end was interesting, but it seemed easy considering in what position the protagonist was to be defiant even if she were faced with lies. What follows feeding the pedestal to our right (the act of defiance) is an example of the point I made about tone in the paragraph above.

I was pleased to play this game!

thank you for the compliments and criticism! 

Being my first game definitely showed me the struggle of keeping things cohesive. And it also showed me that I don't work well under pressure. 

I worried a lot about the dialogue and the defiant choice is definitely part of what I worried about, so I absolutely agree with your criticism and hope to fix it to for an updated version when this is all over. 

Unfortunately for the puzzles, they were over simplified due to time constraints. I was terrified that the judges would run out of time. So in the final version I hope to make them something a bit more exciting! Thank you for the review!

Hello everyone! I've had a couple people say they had trouble getting the files extracted. 

I suggest downloading winRAR. It's a free program for unzipping files and for extracting RAR folders for use.

You can get winrar with a simple google search, it will ask you to choose which language, then it'll give you the option to buy, or use the free version. Do neither, and click the little tiny option that says Continue to download WinRAR.

The game was really fun! If you want to watch a (really bad) LP on how I struggled with the second puzzle - here ya go!

Thank you so much! It was surreal watching someone play my game. I was smiling from beginning to end and your commentary during the bird's trial had me dying. 

Also want to make sure your criticisms are put into place for a more fully fleshed version. 

Thank you again, that really made my day.  One last thing, if you hit continue, you have a chance to choose the alternate ending ;)

I'm glad you found my commentary during that puzzle funny - because I was actually cry laughing at how bad I was! That's really my only criticism - sometimes it felt like there was lag input on the button presses. Everything else was beautiful and awesome!

I'm gonna go click continue now~!

haha trust me, I'm terrible at that puzzle myself. Rpg maker is a huge pain to make things like that on, and I really want to fine tune it in the future! 

I'm glad you're gonna check out the alternate ending!

Good luck everyone!!!

I'm excited!

Thank you! It's not as polished as i'd like because of the time constraints, and this is my first game. But i think people will really enjoy it!
