Interesting game concept.

Helped the teddy bear, the frog, the girl, the robot, the monkey.
Now looking for a key to free the girl from cage.
Ooops, I was thrown onto a ship.
Now, I dived into the sea and am in a cave?
Hehe, no I wasn't in a cave, I was swallowed by a fish :P
I'm free now :D
Let's see what else there is to do.
Okay, climbed down to a girl now.

Finished :dewave:

Interesting "experimental" game; I liked its atmosphere and the challenge to figure out what to do in each location :)

Done all of the same, but stuck as fishbait. What do I do now?

Had to check nordinho for help, and it was the fish teeth that was the sticking point. I may play it again to get the other ending. Beautifully gothic rendition. :smileydance:

I don't remember all the details anymore, but
when you have all 3 fishing lines out and pulled them, and when you have made sure on the screen on the left that the wires(?) are connected, you have to put back all fish teeth in the correct order

Stuck at frog

You need to get screws from another location, and then put them one by one on his plate

How do you get the other ending? I don't see anyway.
Edit: Ouch, never mind.

That ending was really sad...

Apparently there are 2 endings, a good one and a bad one.
I'm going to add this info to the first post :)

Finished, though I'm pretty sure I got the bad end.

Did everything I could think of and couldn't get out of the fish :(
