That was a very good little game! I love all the hints in there, Ozma wasn't even mentioned until the second book.

Sooo the game is not working for me.
I've tried pressing the space bar, I've tried waiting for the load screen to finish for an hour, but nothing seems to be responding.

Is there anything you might reccommend?

Glitches
I had the same problem. If I clicked the "Who made this and how?" button at the top, the game would suddenly load. I got through the first room with little to no problem, but then clicking the arrow to continue didn't do anything. I clicked the magic "Who made this and how?" button again and I moved on to the next room. This one I haven't been able to complete as a couple of the items you're supposed to interact with overlap and you can't get to the one underneath. I haven't figured out a way around that yet. I'm not sure if it's the browser's fault, if my adobe flash player needs an update, or if the game is just that glitchy.

It would be nice if I could look over the letters and pictures I found at the end.

Ohh my gosh
This is nothing short of amazing, xamag! I had a lot of fun with this update! ;w; Though I was hoping to be able to look at the photos and letters after finding everything haha but still this is wonderful!

It just sits on the loading page for me in both Chrome and Firefox.

It gets past the loading screen for me, but everything past that is super glitchy. Unless it's purposefully done to where I have to keep clicking next to do anything, it usually pops right back to the previous dialog before I can even move any items.

Can't get past the loading screen (got to truly appreciate the expert marker-y you did for the loading screen though).

Maybe I should try it at another computer?

I enjoyed this very much! I loved collecting and piecing together the shredded photographs--who are these people? And those dated letters... So mysterious! Thank you for your hard work and determination to bring this scene to life!

Glitching
Sorry to say this, but the game keeps glitching out and returning to Shawn's "Roger" text while i'm cleaning things. It did this once after I had finished too so now i can't return to see what they were saying at the end because I already finished cleaning! I'm using firefox by the way.

Had the same problem. I'd like to see the ending dialogue without going through the game again.

Photos
Hello! This game is amazing and must have taken a lot of time and effort to make! I was wondering if it would be possible to see photos and letters outside of the game itself? I ask this because I seem to be unable to see the photos.

Lovely
Great! ^^ I loved the little game, it was fun. If only there was a way to read the letters again after you find them...

Problem...
I can't drag any of the objects! Do we have to click somewhere to make it work? I tried everywhere and wen I click the game let me drag the object for like 0,009 seconds and then it suddenly come back!

Can't play!
I'm on an Asus with Windows 8.1 playing on Firefox (although I tried in IE too) and I'll be brought to the Loading Page and the ... will flash normally, but nothing ever comes up. Does it just take, like, ten minutes to load, or is something wrong?
If you can't find a way to help, can someone tell me what happens exactly, everyone keeps saying it's amazing and I'm tearing my hair out here!

I can't seem to find all of the picture pieces. I know which one I'm missing, and I've looked everywhere!

So lovely, though.

I had some trouble finding the last picture piece as well.
The piece (picture 2 piece 1) I had trouble finding was hiding on the stool's leg in the upper floor.

If that isn't the picture piece you couldn't find and you are running Safari I would suggest using the 'inspect element' tool and using it to enlarge the hard to spot picture piece (I put it up to 500%) (I think firefox/chrome have the option to edit how you view a page somewhere similar)

I can't get it to work at all... using firfox on an old and stupid computer, but it worked before my internet spazzed and closed on me and now it isn't, won't go past the loading page... is skipping it an option or is it important to the story?

edit delete reply


Xzell


and now it's getting me past the opening dialog but makes internet crash as soon as i try to play...

We can't get the game to load
I love your interactive pages, I wish there were a way for those of us who can't get it to work to at least get a gist of the story parts we missed.
After restarting several times and I even reset my firefox it still doesn't work. :C
on Windows 7, 6 year old laptop.

Tried letting it load for about 10 minutes with no success.
After refreshing it's been loading for nearly 5 minutes and still nothing.
If possible can someone please make a summary so I know what I missed?
