I study medicine, so I know many of the later words, which helps a lot
You did a great job with this game :)
You forgot to add the stick?
Oh I see what your problem is now: YOu don't have to make the cat out of the riceball, you make the riceball and then add the stick and you can combine them directly
You need 5 glowshrooms and then you can go to the day witch or Othra. You can find glowshrooms at Northcrest cave or at the purification lake.
(Also in the main menu you can find a guide, it isn't updated regularly, but yeah. This one is answered in there. I also think you can already get a torch somewhere,)
Also don't forget equipping the item
I finally finished my first run, technically you also have to add another 15 minutes, since the game crashed for me the first time after 15 minutes. Where the hell are the last two strawberries?
I don't know if this is already common knowledge, since I suck at this game and haven't even finished it yet, but the place where you have to use a snowball for the first time (the two rooms with spikes) you don't actually have to use the snowball, you can edgeboost in the first room (by grappling the edge on the far right) and then jump over the spikes in the second room with the momentum you still have from the first room.
I figured this out, since I didn't know that you could jump on snowballs the first time I went through that room and just tried to get past it in some other way.
Good luck speedrunning :)
Honestly, I have no idea how you are supposed to know the person on drums in Dowa Pawlowa, so I kinda got a little frustrated at the end, and I still dont know how you should figure that one out.
But I got it through guessing and it is still a really great game.
