WALKTHROUGH
(please try really hard and use professional assistance to help you out before reading spoilers)

Kroko:

Give him a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and he'll get out of his box

Use ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS to calm him down a bit

Then DREAM ANALYSIS(I usually do to first but i couldn't this time

He's still nerous so he needs MOTIVATION TRAINING

Use MUSICOTHERAPY and he'll get a flute

Try DREAM ANALYSIS again...He lost his flute ;_;

Now DESENSIATION to cure his fear of water

Now MUSICOTHERAPY to get another flute

Nearly done, just DREAM ANAYLYSIS again so he gets his hot water bottle and he's cured!

Lilo:

Use DREAM ANALYSIS to see what he's thinking about

Then ring the CRISIS LINE

Then use PLAY THERAPY and give him a gameboy (he looks like my little brother when hes playing his gameboy lol)

DREAM ANALYSIS again (if it's not the bit with the big equation do it twice)

Give his a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Now for some MUSICOTHERAPY

Use PLAY THERAPY and he'll have a flashback, (how can he fit all that stuff inside him!) then

Use CRISIS LINE so he can phone home.Yay he's cured!(Let's just hope no one else needs the phone for a while)

Sly:

Let's see what he's thinking with DREAM ANALYSIS

Now for ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS

Let's try some MOTIVATIONAL TRAINING...does anyone else find this one a bit strange?

Let's see how he feels after that, more DREAM ANALYSIS ahh lots of tails!

use MUSICOTHERAPY and give his a rattle

Then use the THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and DREAM ANALYSIS until he has the flashback where he's thrown out of the car

Then you can use the SURGERY option to fix his tail. Cured!

Dolly:

Firstly DREAM ANALYSIS

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW...

Another DREAM ANALYSIS (I don't know why Lilo's theres with a sock on his nose :P)

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Then she does some knitting in OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY and makes a nose sock

Then DREAM ANALYSIS (Lilo in the background again) and then Dolly's inner wolf breaks out (She's one of those reversible plush animals)

Then use ADMINISTRTION OF DRUGS so she'll stop panicking

Then use DREAM ANALYSIS and she'll have a flashback, and finally

use TRIGGER STIMULUS so she can put her nose sock on the dog and make friends with her inner wolf

Dub:

First use DREAM ANALYSIS

Then use MOTIVATION TRAINING

Next take away his stopwatch with CONFISCATION so he isn't distracted

Then DREAM ANALYSIS again and he'll retreat into his shell

Then look under the bed and click(If you can't find it click PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE)and electrocute him slightly until he comes out (thanks Channy)I don't really like this bit :(

Then use EXERCICE THERAPY yay a balloon!

DREAM ANALYSIS again...

EXERCICE THERAPY...and then he'll start to cry for a while, and you'll have to wait a bit. Then wait until there are no tissues left in the box

and finally use DREAM ANALYSIS.How cute is that? Cured and finished ;)

STORIES

Kroko:

He used to be a hot-water bottle cover, but his owner took away his bottle and used him as a mop cover, which was the cause for his hydrophobia. The pattern on the lady's dress looked like eyes so he was afraid of the eyes.

Lilo:

His owner used his zip mouth to keep her things in, and she hid the answers to a test in his mouth, but the teacher found out and took away the answers so Lilo feels he has to work out the puzzle himself

Sly:

His owners used his tail to keep drugs in, but they saw a police car behind them so they threw him out the window. His rattle got run over so his rattle broke and the drugs got crushed and made him go crazy

Dolly:

Her owner used her as a chew toy for her dog which made her have a fear of dogs, and also a fear of her wolf side. She's afraid of letting her wolf side get out, but she's sometimes confused between her sheep self and her wolf self (hence the barking and howling when she's still a sheep)

Dub:

When his owner was at the airport on one of those escalator things she dropped him and he couldn't catch up with her. A health club owner picked him up and turned his shell inside out because it had a racing stripe on it. Dub is obsessed with training now because he's afraid of being left behind if he's not fast enough.

I havent played any of those earlier, guess I didnt think there could be anything interesting even when Jay kept saying how good they were. Well, I dont know if I actually LIKED them, but I couldnt stop playing thats for sure.

I mean, those WERE stuffed animals, right? Why I felt so sorry for them then? Very few games can make you really FEEL something beside anger and hate.

Great stuff. Strange, but great. And I dont think Rockstar will ever make anything equal :)

Why, oh why, doesn't Sly show up for us? We can't find him any where. We even cured all of the other animals again, thinking then we would see him...
I normally don't like snakes, but, I think I would have like Sly. I really love krok so much...
Any hints on how to find the snake?

Tonypa - I haven't given this game the in-depth review it deserves. You touched on the primary reason I love this game so much: This game communicates emotion better than any other Flash game I have played. The animation is extraordinary. More interactive narrative than a 'game' per se, though it does have game-like qualities.

Amy - keep trying! =) I wish I could give you the correct sequence of therapies to try. I just kept on trying different things until he got better. =)

Christina - If you are playing this game by clicking a link here on my site, then you should see Sly upon entering the double doors where Crok, Lilo and Dolly are waiting.

Amy, there is help (hints) system built into the game. I used it all the time to get poor animals cured :)

Christina, I dont understand how you can not find the snake, its right there in the waiting room with other 3. Did you use the link in the review? And I dont know about other languages, but it surely works in English version. You dont have to look for the Sly in any special way.

Definitely one of my favorite games ever. The way you progress through the story of each toy is brilliantly done, and you actually end up feeling for them.. Lilo and Sly are easily the best and funniest characters. Though Dolly's condition was very interesting.

The only drawback is trying to explain to other people how great it is..
You tell them you have to cure cuddly toys of mental illness and you get very strange looks.

My opinions on the animals:

Dolly; I just thought her condition was HILARIOUS. It's funny to see that kind of thing illustrated in that fashion.

Kroko; Oh jeez, no wonder he's completely paranoid. I think that he was the most abused and had the most defensive mechanisms. Loved the trippy scenes though.

Lilo; This one is done very well, and a very creative scenario too. Probably the most emotional of the four.

Sly; Sly's problem was subtle and pretty damn cool. I liked it when he left and you heard the music from his owners.

I tried to keep spoilers to a minimum! It was a great game.

OK, I was finally able to get the snake, by clicking on a different link than the one that says "click" and also by reclicking allow pop=ups from this site.

But now, when I get to the second session with Sly, and I try to do ANYTHING all I get is a 'loading' and then I wait, and then nothing ever happens.

Is that how it's supposed to be? I didn't have difficulties with any of the other animals...

thanks again,

No, Christina, that's not the same behavior I experience no matter what link I click on.

When you click on an animal in the lobby, the game loads the respective Flash movie. Once the movie is finished downloading, you should be able to play it immediately.

Try clearing your browser cache, and start again. Other than that, I'm not sure what else to suggest. What OS and browser are you using?

Ok, forgot to write your name above (have an autofill, so...)
Anyway...
What happened is, I found out about your site from another site I go to. (www.volition.com). Also, when I went to the asylum after the snake came, two windows would pop up, one very small, and one normal sized. I always x'ed out of the small one, not thinking of re-loading because of a new character added (a new game).
I finally got to meet sly, and, I have to say, I have never remembered my teenage years so clearly...*G*
He was a bit easy to cure though.
I still love Kroko the most. He reminds me of almost every man I know, playing tough, to hide the 'fluff'
My favorite part (besides when he pulls the puppet's head off) is when he calls her over and flashes his badge.
I love the gator and want to protect him.
Do I need help?
Thanks,
Christina

This is such a fantastic game! I cured them all and was obsessive over it, I spent so long playing it! I have a question about Lilo's past.

I know the reason Lilo was like the way She(?) is. But was the owner caught cheating on a test and thats why she was obsessing about the puzzle?

I have to agree, this game actually made me feel sorry for the critters. Although I felt sorrier for Syd at one point than I did at the end...

when he had the dream of the girl taking something from his tail and then walking off into the river, I thought maybe some child choked on some loose part of his tail and died (hence why she didn't come out of the river.

Anyway, yeah, Kroko and Syd made me go "That's so sad!" and Dolly was amusing-but-makes-you-think when I finally figured out what was going on. Oh, and I loved listening to the motivation therapy tapes :)...some of them were amusing, and some of them actually encouraged me! I found Lilo a little weird up until a certain point (and she's the one I started with so I wasn't sure how I was going to like the game seeing as she was weirding me out a little), but I was so proud of her when

she wrote her name in the Game Boy in the game and got up all determined-like

and then again when

she unzipped her mouth and started talking!

cw - in answer to why Lilo obsesses about the jigsaw -

if you look carefully at the test that the girl is caught cheating on, the top of it has a diagram that shows the two jigsaw pieces fitted together. She couldn't solve that question without her "cheat sheet" (well, she really couldn't solve it once she got caught and her test got taken away, but she couldn't have done it on her own regardless) and I guess Lilo felt really bad for her that she wished she could have helped the girl solve the question without the "cheat sheet"...after all, the girl was in a way relying on Lilo for help, and Lilo failed to help her, and I guess Lilo felt badly about that "failure." I know sometimes I find myself moping about "failures" that I shouldn't bother moping about.

Shivers - about those dreams -

I actually didn't see Lilo in Kroko's dreams, so I can't help ya there, but when I saw Lilo in Dolly's dream, she had the "magical sock" over her mouth and pointed Dolly towards the woods. This served two purposes: 1. encouraged Dolly to go into the woods rather than pursue the oasis hallucination she saw when she was in the desert (setting the scene for the other dreams) and, more importantly, 2. signals to Dolly (and to us) that putting a "magical sock" over a mouth might be a key to her cure (I don't know if you read the help for Dolly at all, but at one point when I did it encouraged me to help Dolly find this "magical sock" as an inner resource or some such thing).

Did anyone else notice all of the humor snuck in to that game? Like the "no hanging" sign in the waiting room, or the fact that the person who picks up Lilo is the same girl who threw Sly out of the window?

I love this game! It's so much fun to try and solve all of their problems without help, and even the wrong results are sometimes fun to see. However, I got a bit creeped out when the picture started talking to sly about his libido... But over all it was a great game!

I wasn't sure what to expect, but that was great. You really do develope a connection to the little toys. The variations you could get were surprising as well. I had a couple slip back a few notches in treatment due to poor choices on my part, though I can't say I ever let any of mine go into the red and the help was helpful without spoiling things too much. Dolly gave me the most trouble treatmentwise but nothing insurmountable. (One problem was that at one point, I had all options crossed out, might have been a game bug)

Kroko was probably my favorite. So cute...

BTW:

It's as I suspected, communication beats medicatoin. Out of all the sessions, I only had to use drugs twice, and I'm not sure the second case was needed but I did manage to upset Dolly pretty bad.
Oh, and Snake + Yoga = BAD idea. ;)

Without using the "Professional Help" technique, I never would have finished this, as it would have been trial and error throughout. However, the point that was made before should be made again. This game, unlike probably any flash game I've played, really makes one feel something for the characters. It's very strange, and I found myself looking around the empty room to make sure no one was around to see me saying "awwww" to a computer monitor. Great game, though, and I like the idea of multiple endings, and alternate paths.

On a side note, it's interesting to note that for those of us in the US, it's cheaper to buy the plush dolls from the European site than from this US-based "Schmancy" site. The mark-up on the US site is about $7 per animal, and domestic shipping is higher than necessary as well. I find it hard to believe that shipping ½ pound domestically costs $9. In the end, I found it was cheapest to get either all four from the European site, or, if all four aren't available there, get three from there and one from the US site.

I think the reason all you get is an empty room when you finish is because they're adding more animals in the future, seeing as how they added the snake after they put out the game, I think they are adding more throughout the game.
Personally, I hope they do it that way. Or else the game would be really boring to play again with the same animals.

loved the game but it took quite a while for me to figure out it all. I wasn't able to avoid electrocuting my animals at least once (which means starting over from the beginning) but it seems like every time that happens you get a little more info. The toughest one for me was Lilo.

I wished there was more to the ending rather than just being left with an empty room. Like, the nurse walking in to congratulate me or seeing the animals be adopted by more loving new owners.

Also, I didn't like how your progress is lost if you click on the door to the reception in the middle of the game. I already finished curing kroco, and I clicked on the door, and then I have to cure kroco from the beginning. sucks. I wished there was a saving feature.

I agree that it should've been made clear that the "professional advice" feature is essential to solving the game. But perhaps that's part of the trial-and-error process. In any case, there are occasions where the professional advice was so vague that it didn't help.

Also, I might just be really dumb, but I didn't really understand what happened to the animals...

Tom - this game really isn't amenable to a walk through. You just have to keep trying different types of treatments. although i will tell you

using the electroshock under the bed seems to reset them to close to the state they were in at first and use the drugs, but use them sparingly, as some of the animals get wacky if they get too much

Golly, that might be one of the best, deepest, most expansive Flash games I've ever had the pleasure to play. Between that and the Grow games this is a Golden Age for Flash.
I don't think it's the kinda game that you could write a walk-through for, though. Just a lot of trial and error. And heed the tips listed above: avoid shock therapy, lots of dream analysis, and use drugs sparingly if at all.

This is a unique presentation. As tonypa and other pointed out earlier, it evokes emotions unlike any other game I can recollect. Lilo made me laugh out loud. You are put in a position to help someone, rather than destroy or score more points than them. Yet you feel a sense of accomplishment when they are "cured" :-) Cool stuff.

Loved the game, obsessed over it, and it was very, very well made.

I know it's been said before, but the only downside is curing them all and walking outside, and all you get is an empty waiting room.

lol, that was cute ^0^ I think Sly was the hardest to cure (or maybe I was just not lucky, picking the wrong therapy over and over again). And never thought he would be cured THAT way :))

Woah! There's a new stuffed critter to play as: a turtle or tortise with a skipping rope! I gotta help that guy out.

Whoops: the tortise won't be available for treatment until the end of this month. This game must have a public health care system.

Wow! That was so cute, I don't think I've ever played a game that touchingly composed before.

My favorite was Dolly, then Sly.

Although my favorite part was Sly's

Freud encounter.

There's a turtle in the waiting room who isn't treatable yet, but it says he will be when November ends. I'm looking forward to coming back.

I was replaying and eventually failed so badly with Lilo that I wasn't allowed to treat her anymore. Has this happened with any other animals?

Yes. With each patient, there is a way to screw them up so badly that the doctor must resort to electroshock therapy.
That is generally considered a bad thing, though.

As it turns out, the tortoise's name is Dub, and is compulsively hyperactive. Someone should make an update referring to him. He needs all the help he can get.

You can treat the turtle now. I'm still working on him - but i have to say - so cute and touching so far. I love this game.

I am having major issues with Dub! I have gotten him to the point where he takes his shell off, but anything I do after that eventually leads him to sobbing horribly and not responding to anything I do. I just feel so bad for him; can someone please help?

Dub seems to be waiting for next patient? If he is sitting on his shell, may have to go through several boxes of tissues.

HANDS DOWN..

BEST GAME I've played in a while! It's sooo cute and sad at the same time!! I'm biased cause this game, to me, is my first love for I do love many games I've found here on Jayisgames and is the reason why I keep coming back to this AWESOME site for new games.

I never thought I'd almost tear up watching these animals go through their rehabilitation phases! They need to make more of these!! Any other games like this out there??

I'm totally stuck on Dub. He's crying on his shell, and it sounds like almost everyone else is having this problem. The only thing I have left to do is shock him again but I don't want to in case I lose all of my past progress :(

for those of you stuck on dub (the tortoise), i got hm to resolve his issues.

When i reached the point where he was just crying and nothing would work, i went back and solved another animals problems, then came back to him.

After that i went through each option twice, then left him sitting while i took a phone call, then tried dream analysis again, and he was fixed.

i think the professional opinion says he needs some time to accept his loss, so maybe you just need him to wait for a while?

WALKTHROUGH
(please try really hard and use professional assistance to help you out before reading spoilers)

Kroko:

Give him a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and he'll get out of his box

Use ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS to calm him down a bit

Then DREAM ANALYSIS(I usually do to first but i couldn't this time

He's still nerous so he needs MOTIVATION TRAINING

Use MUSICOTHERAPY and he'll get a flute

Try DREAM ANALYSIS again...He lost his flute ;_;

Now DESENSIATION to cure his fear of water

Now MUSICOTHERAPY to get another flute

Nearly done, just DREAM ANAYLYSIS again so he gets his hot water bottle and he's cured!

Lilo:

Use DREAM ANALYSIS to see what he's thinking about

Then ring the CRISIS LINE

Then use PLAY THERAPY and give him a gameboy (he looks like my little brother when hes playing his gameboy lol)

DREAM ANALYSIS again (if it's not the bit with the big equation do it twice)

Give his a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Now for some MUSICOTHERAPY

Use PLAY THERAPY and he'll have a flashback, (how can he fit all that stuff inside him!) then

Use CRISIS LINE so he can phone home.Yay he's cured!(Let's just hope no one else needs the phone for a while)

Sly:

Let's see what he's thinking with DREAM ANALYSIS

Now for ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS

Let's try some MOTIVATIONAL TRAINING...does anyone else find this one a bit strange?

Let's see how he feels after that, more DREAM ANALYSIS ahh lots of tails!

use MUSICOTHERAPY and give his a rattle

Then use the THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and DREAM ANALYSIS until he has the flashback where he's thrown out of the car

Then you can use the SURGERY option to fix his tail. Cured!

Dolly:

Firstly DREAM ANALYSIS

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW...

Another DREAM ANALYSIS (I don't know why Lilo's theres with a sock on his nose :P)

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Then she does some knitting in OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY and makes a nose sock

Then DREAM ANALYSIS (Lilo in the background again) and then Dolly's inner wolf breaks out (She's one of those reversible plush animals)

Then use ADMINISTRTION OF DRUGS so she'll stop panicking

Then use DREAM ANALYSIS and she'll have a flashback, and finally

use TRIGGER STIMULUS so she can put her nose sock on the dog and make friends with her inner wolf

Dub:

First use DREAM ANALYSIS

Then use MOTIVATION TRAINING

Next take away his stopwatch with CONFISCATION so he isn't distracted

Then DREAM ANALYSIS again and he'll retreat into his shell

Then look under the bed and click(If you can't find it click PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE)and electrocute him slightly until he comes out (thanks Channy)I don't really like this bit :(

Then use EXERCICE THERAPY yay a balloon!

DREAM ANALYSIS again...

EXERCICE THERAPY...and then he'll start to cry for a while, and you'll have to wait a bit. Then wait until there are no tissues left in the box

and finally use DREAM ANALYSIS.How cute is that? Cured and finished ;)

STORIES

Kroko:

He used to be a hot-water bottle cover, but his owner took away his bottle and used him as a mop cover, which was the cause for his hydrophobia. The pattern on the lady's dress looked like eyes so he was afraid of the eyes.

Lilo:

His owner used his zip mouth to keep her things in, and she hid the answers to a test in his mouth, but the teacher found out and took away the answers so Lilo feels he has to work out the puzzle himself

Sly:

His owners used his tail to keep drugs in, but they saw a police car behind them so they threw him out the window. His rattle got run over so his rattle broke and the drugs got crushed and made him go crazy

Dolly:

Her owner used her as a chew toy for her dog which made her have a fear of dogs, and also a fear of her wolf side. She's afraid of letting her wolf side get out, but she's sometimes confused between her sheep self and her wolf self (hence the barking and howling when she's still a sheep)

Dub:

When his owner was at the airport on one of those escalator things she dropped him and he couldn't catch up with her. A health club owner picked him up and turned his shell inside out because it had a racing stripe on it. Dub is obsessed with training now because he's afraid of being left behind if he's not fast enough.

For those stuck on Dub:

When he is crying at the end, and none of the options are helping, wait for him to run out of tissues.
Then click on Dream Analysis. Choosing any other option will get him a new box of tissues, and you will have to wait all over again.

After he recovers, does Sly

go back to his previous owners? When he exits the hospital, you can hear the music that plays in his dream sequence.

Oh my goodness, I love this game. All of the stuffed animals are adorable- my personal favorite is Sly, and then Kroko, and then the raven (forgot his name-haven't played in a while). This game took a lot of thinking andit was fun to see all the reactions to the wrong things (which I saw quite a lot XD ).

Love it! :)
