You have to place the sandpaper over the cracks on the doll's face.
If the position is correct, the sandpaper will be slightly highlighted.
Left and the crack will be erased.
Repeat the operation until there's no crack left.
I hope it helps!
Thanks for the feedback!
We wanted the game to be mysterious but here's a link to a page that analyses all its themes:
It's an interesting read if you want to learn more about The Doll Shop.
It's mostly an update to make the gameplay smoother: the transition between the scenes, the character speed, the dialogue speed and the menus have been improved for a better experience. But the game (story + graphics) is the same.
Thank you SO MUCH! It's so motivating!!!
Yes, there's something special about the stories where the main character is the bad guy.
It was totally new for us to write something like that and we enjoyed it a LOT!
Oh, that's very kind! Thank you!
Unfortunately, there's no way to donate to us but, if you're interested in more stories from us, our first graphic novel was recently translated in English. It's called "ONIBI" and it's published by Tuttle.
Thanks you so much for your kind words!
If you're interested in the meanings and themes of the game, someone wrote a very interesting page that should answer most of your questions. Here it is : https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Videogame/TheDollShop
The first shard appears mixed with Ms Sato's broken doll... a few seconds before we meet her granddaughter.
It can have many meanings but we cannot give you one clear explanation.
What's happening in the twisted mind of our protagonist remains a complete mystery...
A the graphics from the game were made during a 3 days workshop. But the programming, story and music took longer.
Actually the main character was inspired by a Japanese actor (Joe Odagiri) but, now that you mention it, there's something of Keanu Reeves indeed!
And thank you for all your kind words about the game!
I'm so sorry this bug prevented you from finishing the game.
I've fixed it (it should be impossible to leave the butterfly room now). Thank you so much for reporting it and saving more players from being trapped like that. Once again: sorry and thank you for the help!
