I have to say, this fangame is absolutely stunning. I'm only up to the prologue but the story is really keeping me on me tippy toes so I'm really excited to see this fangame develops. I'm telling you this game is going places. 

I hope many get to play this awesome game.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the support, it means a lot and keeps me going! 😊

I'd like to thank you for this amazing fangame, I'm currently playing the 1st chapter and I really don't know where to post my question, but I'm kinda stuck in the first trial ^^' (It's about  naming a certain item) I'd like to know if there's a hint somewhere.

Thanks again for this amazing game.
