I know this game is older at this point but if you happen to see this comment maybe you can help. I get to the third screen and the text runs out and then there's nothing I can do to progress. I'm not sure if I'm missing something or if the game is broken. It looks like it was working when it originally launched. It looks awesome I just can't seem to progress.

Hi there. I’m sorry to hear that. Are you playing on mobile or pc? I was able to complete the game on mobile a few minutes ago, even if the touch controls were a bit finicky.

this is so cool! i love how you combines reading a book and then actually "living" a little scene of a story!! thats so neat!!


Thanks onion!

1800's literature is so interesting to read. Vivid most of it.

wow, this is so atmospheric! very cool!

This game is a positive surprise and very different from the usual games on this engine. The story is kind of mysterious and you can't really predict it, so in many respects it's interesting. Overall, the gameplay is also very advanced for a game of this kind, it really has some depth to match the story.

I'd love to invite this game to take part in our contest, the Game Development World Championship!


Thanks for the kind words and the invite.

This has to be one of the most complex Bitsy games I have ever seen! Your work and effort really shines through the beautiful pixel art and incredible storytelling

Woah. Thank you so much.
