And it's done! I hope we'll get to solve its mysteries. :)

I played quite a bit and I found a bug. Once in the cave, the buttons in the lower part can't be clicked (so you need to Esc to exit). Also, that gaze linking puzzle... I don't get it. :)


Thanks for the heads up on this bug, it has been fixed.

As for the gaze linking puzzle, start with the portrait at the top-center, and aim for the eyes :)

Tried for 20 more minutes.. nothing. I did get to finish the demo though. :)

LE: New day, new try... finally got it. I'll make a video soon.
