Hello, I'm not sure if you're still looking at these comments, but I'm playing and enjoying this game quite a bit. However, I'm stumped as how to get any ending other than the bad one. I've got the nuts and found the magic stone, but I have no idea what do with them. Could you give me any hints? In any case, this is a great game, and I'm so glad I found it.
Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad you're enjoying it. I'm not sure how many things you've collected so far, but the jar of acid is at least one item you'll need to get for any of the better endings. Try spending some time around the pond searching for the source if you haven't found it already. Also, the cave has a lot of important items inside if you can find a way to move the stones away from the entrance. Both inside the cave and at the pond have moments where you must just wait for a short while to have things appear, which is hinted at by certain comments in the text. (For example: It would be foolish to continue without letting my eyes adjust to the dark.)
If I've guessed wrong and you've already figured out those things I've mentioned, or if I was a bit too vague with my hints, let me know and I'd be happy to explain a bit more.
Yes, that helped. I was able to get the other four endings. I guess I didn't anticipate that waiting was going to be a mechanic in this game.
Endings Four and Five are some powerful stuff. I got some chills, I think. Really great storytelling.
