Very sorry for the late reply!
Thank you for playing Dreaming Alice and trying again after that puzzle. I'll be fixing the way I programmed it, so hopefully people won't get stuck on it. I'll also try annd make the scenes at the Duchess a bit clearer. Some of the other bugs you mentioned have been fixed in a new version, which I'll be uploading some time next week if everything works out. :)
I'm glad you enjoyed it so far. I'm planning to remake it, as I want to do the game and the vision I had for it justice.
