I'm not sure why, but after getting the tether, I went back into the kitchen and looked at Frank, and the game stopped accepting input after the reaction text displayed.

It's a cute point & click game, i like it, also the bg music sounds nice.

about the game:
- In the dining room if you check the MAP, and exit the MAP, you can no longer click on anything except LOOK.
to fix it i have to exit the game and not checking map in the dining room.
I haven't tried all the rooms, but you might want to double check also.

- Because the ghost is always on the same position, it's hard for me to tell which room i came from, so i got lost easily.
My suggestion would be to position the ghost near the door where you came from,
that way it's easier for me to back track to previous room.

You're welcome, and thanks for making a game for us! I think you'll find a most cooperative ad-hoc beta-testing community =)RandomExile2013-05-24 03:28:03

@rabidsheep
hi, I'd like to say firstly how much I enjoyed your game.. I like the point and click.. and the storyline kept my interest.. love the graphics too..
but I encountered a few bugs the same one mentioned by @RandomExile.. so I restarted it twice making sure not to 'talk' with Frank to be able to continue..
later upstairs I found the last piece of the journal then the rug/ pull..
but the arrow to move back downstairs had disappeared .. I restarted the game from the continued option but found I had then lost the last piece of the journal and had to go back and get it again.. but only to find myself not able to go downstairs..
I was enjoying the game so much... Please fix the bugs

@mineet thanks for the comments! We're looking to have a patched-up build ready within the next two or three days.
