Ah, that seems to be something I didn't make terribly clear, but I'm not sure if that's a negative thing in this context. In the beginning, the monster had taken the child from the house hoping to kind of..."persuade" her to run away, or at least get her away from Ma'am. The child wakes up confused, tries to get home, but is stopped by the monster who brings her back out again, trying to keep her away. I wanted to cause a little bit of confusion, doubt, and concern about the nature and intent of the monster since, when they caught you, they didn't kill you.
I have been told that it's a little more confusing than I thought it would be, and I definitely appreciate the criticism. If/When I revisit this, I might try to find a better way to convey that.
Also, thank you very much for your review! I really appreciate the insight and constructive criticism, and I'm very glad you enjoyed the game. =)
