How do you unlock the first door? /: Using the spacebar isn't working for me.

Pyrroly, you'll need a key for each locked door.

When you press 'space' to interact with something, it will open a dialog box with a numbered list of the items currently in your inventory.

Press the number corresponding to the item you want to use.

Look *everywhere* and at *everything* to find all the keys.

***********

Cute game -- more, please!

I enjoyed this, but a couple of things would have improved it:

Some of the interactions were non-intuitive; in particular

using the monocle on the painting

Also given how much trial and error there is, spacebar should interact and also clear the interaction dialog, rather than requiring a different key for each.

The atmosphere and artwork are top-notch and perfectly match the mood (I was surprised by the mild swearing, but I don't mind swearing). The gameplay, on the other hand, was a bit clunky and very linear; and most of the puzzles were solved by just interacting every item with every other item, rather than any deductive reasoning. It also wasn't clear what I could interact with and what I couldn't, I was baffled that there was no

use for the pliers.

I'd love to see this one tightened up and expanded.

That was adorable.

Also for any stuck

The study door has to be unlocked by touching the very upper right portion of the door. Had me going for a while.

You can extinguish the boiling pot with a wet sponge and you can wet the sponge in the bathroom.

That painting that is shouting that it can't see anything-- ring any bells?

In the library is a statue with a monocle. Use the spatula to pry it off and give it to the painting.
