Quite a grim experiment, but the research goal is significant.
The soul wanders in the dark in search of a cure (or oblivion?).
Themed puzzles, the search for pills, endless staircases, cute conversations with a doctor, distorted sketches of consciousness and statues of mechanical birds - an impression in the Gothic style.
Passed in Steam. An ambiguous impression leaves after the end of the game. The boat is found, but this is not a happy ending.
PS: Played the first day - even more stairs, a music puzzle, a visit to the doctor. The style and graphics are great.
"Weevil" came for a short time and locked his demons in cages, promising to return in full embodiment.

hey, what version did you download and what OS are you running?
I downloaded v112, and I have windows 10
can you verify if you have a readme.txt file in the same folder as the game's .exe ? if not, please download the file again, I updated it with a fix.
