Had much fun plaiying, west puzzle tripped me up for quite a while. Kinda regret having used this many hints :D
A puzzle game, lateral-thinking.
Its riddles may drive you to drinking.
The keys to all locks
Are "outside the box",
She says, while suspiciously winking.
I know getting stuck makes you wince
So that's why I made in-game hints.
Spoilered and stuck
Both mightily suck
So that's what this (likely) prevents.
No violence, the peril of being trapped in a cave (but not a tight, enclosed cave), no nudity, no sexual content, no drug or alcohol use, no jumpscares, 2 occurrences of profanity, both grawlixed (e.g. "Holy $#?@!"), mild references to Buddhism and John Denver.
- Won't load on some mobile devices, but there's no touchscreen support anyway.
- Text scales poorly when embedded/windowed. Workaround: fullscreen.
