You play as Ella, a young girl who's father fell for a wealthy woman. Your father only ever wanted what's best for you and should he marry, you'd never have to worry about anything ever again. Unfortunately, your prospective mother and her two daughters are not what they seem. Cursed, they must consume the souls of men in order maintain their beauty. As he died, he begged them not to hurt you. When magic flows, it flows into everything and this was a contract that bound them. To get something, you must give something and these three could not kill you, but they couldn't just let you go. It's hard enough to maintain your beauty when you're forever aging and never dying, so a young girl whose father was teaching her alchemy could be very useful.

  • As Ella, you'll have to do chores for your evil captors. Create items to upgrade your skills.
  • You'll need to learn recipes in order to advance. Some recipes you'll learn automatically. Other's you'll have to find.
  • Of course, you'll need to gather ingredients for your recipes.


Work well, be obedient, and perhaps you'll be able to live a relatively comfortable life of servitude to your father's murderers. Or perhaps, you could learn the means to teach your captors a lesson they will never forget.

Heck yeah man use those fucking white screw graphics dude good job
Nice use of the RPG Maker 2k tiles. I've been at a loss of how to format them for use in Vx Ace.
Game would be dark if there's a route where you can poison your captors.

There IS a route where you can poison your captors.

Well, try to poison, them, anyway.
The premise is really creepy! :O I love it! ^_^ Can't wait to see how the mysteries uncover! :)
I love the concept (I love me some dark fairytales), but I'm having difficulty with even the first piece of alchemy, as this supposed green bar never appears. Either I am dumb, or something's not kosher with my copy of the game.

I'm not sure how to help. This problem has never come up.

Then I have no clue. Like, am I being stupid for not seeing something obvious??? :( Can you tell me what I'm supposed to be looking at here?

Have you tried pressing "Enter" again?

Yes, still no green bar :(

Try uninstalling and reinstalling. Also, might be a compatibility issue with your operating system. You might try experimenting with the compatibility settings.
Nice game. How many endings are there?

Unfortunately just one. I actually have multiple paths because I intended multiple endings, but jam game with deadline. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And it comes up again.
I'm having the exact same problem as the-phantom-crow, and thus can't play the game
:(

I've tried to tinker with the compatibility, re-install the game, and many things...nothing works.
If the images of the games are anything to go by, I'd say it might be a matter of fonts.
The text does not appear in gothic at all, and maybe the missing green bar is linked to it.

Anyway, if someone has a solution, or stumbles upon the same problem and has other clues, let us know !


Edit 03/27 : finally managed to have the game working !
I only managed to have the green bar with windows 10 (nothing older would work).

And so ! after days of struggling to finally be able to play this game, I must say that I was...disappointed.
200Mo, and the game is easily beaten in less than 45 minutes (while taking my time to explore and everything).
Is that a demo ?
cause if it's not, maybe you'd like to add a few things to make the players...play.

Since I can't review, I'm listing my grievances here :
- the summary tells us that we're going to have to learn recipes and upgrade our skills (yeah !)
We got to do 4 alchemies, and we can manage with ONE cooking recipe.
- I expected many paths, but basically we have a few Game Over and one and only path leading to the end (that we can't influence at all, no matter what we do we're railroaded to the end)
- the map is an enclosed space, but I don't think we got to use 75% of it. We don't use most of the items and ingredients we found. It's like starting the game and then...it's the end.
- the story was nice and dark and all until...
Gwendolyn turns out to be a nice gal, and basically let us free. We don't have to fight to get out, we don't have to be cunning, to be deceptive...nothing !
She's like "I killed your father, now I'm gonna make you my slave for the rest of your life MWAHAHAH!!!!...oh look ! a good looking guy ! I'm going to set you up with him so you can leave this awful place and live a happy life my sweet pumpkin !"
...is she bipolar, or something ?

were you lacking time to develop the story and just throw a way out quickly ?

I am VERY sorry to be harsh on this game, but that's what happen when I am disapointed...I had great expectations here, and I feel that this game didn't keep his promises at all.
Also, if other people have trouble getting this game to run, they might like to know it's not exactly worth the trouble of tikering for hours with their compatibility settings...


And, I'd like to report a few bugs :
- If you realize that the pump is broken before giving the essence to Gwendolyn, she will be stuck telling you to go fetch water in the cave no matter what you may do, thus we are stuck in the game.
- we can find the nightshade before gwendolyn actually told us where to find it. Not a bug, but that’s kinda ludicrous to ask where is the nightshade when I have some in my inventory !
- when checking your items, if you press enter, the item will disappear. Not a problem with vegatables/cooking items, but it might be more serious with some more important stuff…
- there is a recurring mistake between east and west all along the game. Since we are able to find our way quickly it’s not important, but still…
- cooked meals do not always appear on the table. Sometimes you have to leave the room and come back.
- this is a game claiming to have many routes, so a game people will play many times. Being able to skip the intro could prove useful (unless people are not as dense as I am and get themself a saving file at the start that they’ll use whenever they want to restart from the beginning…)

And that's all folks !
Can this get a download added/linked to the site? : ( I would love to review it but it cannot be done at the moment

I think I recall something like this happening before. There was a game that had a download, but, it needed to be flagged as the "main" download in order for a review to be added.

I have 29 game pages. I know how to put downloads on the main page.

No such option exists.
It works now, so whatever it is you did, it worked! Thanksies : )

I agree it's strange though and a bummer for everyone involved. I could download it, but it just somehow didn't register.
Ohhh, how did this game fly under my radar? I should give this a play and also try my hands at giving a review for once.
