Woohoo, we finished the game! The last oart was frightening - such a short story is the only way we can consume horror I think - you don't have to decide to go back to it. We never go back ;).
However, we had another issue during this playthrough, I'm leaving it here in case you wanted to fix it. This time those strange sounds didn't stop when closing eyes for birthday cake - we had to endure them for the whole "party". Fortunately they were gone for the recorded tale and further.
And regarding lagginess, this time it happened again, when Bonbon show ed up near the TV and more or less stayed with us for the rest of the game.
Keep up the good work, we hope to see more such things from you, hopefully this time we won't be the ones on who the technical problems focused ;)
