This little game have a nice atmosphere, the song loop is great, but after a few minute, you must mute it ...  The puzzle is not good... I still doesn't figure how to solve the safe code. even with the video... It's not well done... You must click everywhere without indications, and each time a text appear. 

I don't particularly recommend this game. Sorry

Thanks for trying our game. It's too bad you did not enjoy it. 

It's common in click and point games not to highlight clickable areas as that could render the game too easy. The texts that appear when you click on something are usually clues to solving the puzzles. If you were following another player's video, the safe code will not be the same as yours as it's randomly generated in each playthrough.

Nice game, I liked the cartoony art style.

Thank you for playing our game! :)

A nice little game. Had fun testing it.

P.S. the ending cutscene got stuck.

Thank you for playing our game! It's much appreciated! :) The ending cutscene was fixed in version 1.1 along with some other small bugs.
