I’m so glad you’re enjoying it! I loved the video, thanks so much.

Found a problem with the game, in the section where you have to put the batteries in the toy. The sound file HM.1 Beep is missing and thus crashes the game. I was able to continue by copy and pasting another .ogg sound file and renaming it as HM.1 Beep, but still it's something that needs to be fixed asap.

Fixed in 1.1.1

Thanks for letting me know.

Not sure if there’s a way to PM on itch, so I’ll just delete this comment as soon as you respond. You’re supposed to drop the skull down the hole in the room. This puzzle, and a few more after it, are really confusing in the version you have. I'd recommend just downloading the newest version (just uploaded it) and replay it, as the puzzles are more refined +There’s more content.

In regards to the skull puzzle, a solution might be to allow the player to look down the hole.
I found it simple after jumping down the hole for my first time after a few deaths to the grey plate, when I fell down I recognised the area and realised where the skull was landing.

I've considered adding that myself! As soon as I have the time I'll add it and see how well it works.

Interesting so far, curious of many things that are going on.

Hey, thanks so much for trying it out! It was so awesome to watch! I watched a few of your other videos, and they’re great, Just subbed. If you do keep playing there are a few bugs you’ll probably experience, nothing game breaking, but kinda annoying.
