This was such a fun game! I loved how unique the idea is and the overall aesthetic of the game. Great job Ema ;)

Thank you very much !


cool, the aesthetic was very unique, and i could actually finish it lol

Well done ! And thank you for playing :D


I totally misread the name and thought I had 8 minutes to solve the game. :D Other than than, nice game.

xD Yeah it would be hard in 8min ! Thanks !


would you mind if I called this collage Klotski?

Absolutly not ! I didn't know about it, but it is exactly that.


Yes! I am so proud - I did it. At the end ... nah, I don't want to spoiler ;-) Nice game - really enjoyed the puzzels! The progress nicely aligns with the story - good job!


Thank you so much ! It can seem tricky but the satisfaction of succeeding is worth it, the moment when everything click into place and slide right ! 

I'm not going to lie, I'm a little unsure at what I'm supposed to be doing?

Thanks for saying it ! You have to move the pieces, and bring special pieces to their respective space (key to the lock, candles to their bases, bed on the heart, and special pieces under the wood bases with said wood bases in their original places (that's hard to explain)), everything is explained in every level's animation. I hope you give it another chance !

will do! I must have not been able to move things properly? I can send a video if I run into it again :) would love to give it another shot!

That's really weird... I don't really know why it wouldn't work x) If you mean a video of the issue, yes please ! That way I can maybe fix it

And if you mean a video of you playing the game, that would be awesome, i love to see people play my game !

here's a video of how it opens up and starts for me. nothing is moving except the key on the side when i click and when clicking buttons. i didn't see the level animation you mentioned in a previous comment too. i feel like i'm probably missing something obvious i'm sorry! i just want to play XD
