Hi Raphael, thank you for the tips - I thought there must be something else to do with USB stick.

Thanks for your email btw - I thought it could be helpful to anyone else that might be playing to reply to you here.
The cottage I meant was the one you come across after finding something in the mole hole.

I’ve moved on quite a lot now & am stuck again - I’m trapped in the doctor’s house - I can see that the ‘clone’ is signalling to her right with her eyes but I can’t find anything in the room that I can do anything with? Help!

My first tip: Search again Wink ... and if you really won`t find anything useful: Have a focus at the area left of the glass pane.

Thank you!  Thumbs Up I’ve now finished the game & thinking about the ending (yes, I did see the clip after the credits)......I certainly could now do with that brain I gave away   Laughing

It’s certainly the most interesting game I’ve played for a long time & I wish you hadn’t been so modest on the kickstarter.

A remastered version would be wonderful but you really wouldn’t have to change too much. An optional hotspot highlighter would be good as that’s mainly what held me up. Also navigation was difficult. Better clarity graphics (in the same colours) would be great that also better reflect consistent weather conditions & appropriate times of day. Also there was some dialogue towards the end that didn’t include an English translation for which I had to look up on Google translate. 

Otherwise I really loved the whole concept of the game & thought the voice-acting which added a lot to the foreboding atmosphere was wonderful. Thumbs Up

Are you making any more games?

If you say that you really loved the whole concept of the game, I’m very happy. Because unfortunately I hardly got any feedback on my game, neither negative nor positive, let alone a single review. That is really sad, because I have to answer your question with “no”, whether I will develop more games in the future. Unfortunately, the big effort is not worth it - unless I could still find ways to attract more attention to the game. But how?

I’m a bit confused, what’s the difference between Shadows by the Waterhouse and Shadows by the Waterhouse major version? Is the major version part 2?

Oh, I might have to label it a little better. I saw in my account that you bought the first chapter 17 hours ago. If you want you can have the main version cheaper if you would transfer three instead of five euros to me via PayPal (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)). But you don’t have to decide that immediately, take your time and come back to my offer whenever you want Wink... Best regards, Raphael Smile

I really liked this game - it was very difficult but I loved the atmosphere & persisted to eventually progress to an interesting ending. It was a very nice contrast to the many un-challenging games I’ve experienced.

Thank you for your feedback, chrissie!! I am very happy about your positive review. A third part of the Waterhouse story is already being planned Wink
