Alice's Deserta is a short puzzle game developed by Brendyn O'Donnal

~The Game~
Alice had lived all her life with her parents. She rarely left the house and was a very quiet little girl.
Despite her timidness, her parents loved Alice and Alice loved them back.
Today is Alice's 5th Birthday and everyone has been in a bustle for the past week. However something has gone slightly wrong.
Alice wakes up to find that no one is in the house except her.
Memories begin to show themselves as Alice slowly begins to remember what happened the day before, or perhaps a much longer time...

~The Point~
The point behind Alice's Deserta is to explore psychology and the way people act under large amounts of trauma. As you go along, the game will begin to hint towards Alice's illness.However, the game does not point out what the problem is exactly. Alice's Deserta is meant to allow players to look into the game for subtle clues and figure out the symbolism on their own, rather than hand it to them. The game relies on it's Symbolism so if you're looking for an artistic or dark game you'll probably like this. The game is short but not straight forward as to the story it's trying to tell. This gives the game a kind of mysterious feel.

This is a puzzle game so most Rpg elements have been removed but it's still worth the play.

Alice's Deserta letter opener fix

So apparently you are able to do things without finding the letter opener so I went and fixed that. Other than that I didn't have much time to fix anything else. The file is named v.02 but it's not really that big of an update. A download link will be added.

I would love to help you but you will have to wait a while. I will be busy most of today. The reason I did not upload to mediafire is because they won't upload files over 200 Mb without a membership and I don't plan on getting one. However, I will definently look for an alternate file sharing site.
This was painful to download. 200 mb for a small puzzle game? No, something's wrong here. You needn't have included the whole RTP with it, you know :)

However the game wasn't bad, taking into account fact that you're probably still learning how to use the program. Passability issues, strange eventing, maps could use work... but the story felt solid, if short. There's a subtle horror game vibe to it even, which I enjoyed.

Oh ok! If you know how (as i dont either xD) you can always rar the folder and split it into two parts. Which would then be 100Mbs each. Then mediafire would work! But thats just an option if you dont find another file sharer. Either way ill give the download another try.

Thank you for the tips aswell as the support. I am glad you enjoyed the story. As for the RTP, I will see what I can do.
Edit: The file has been shrunk immensely thanks for informing me.
The game crashes when I try to save, try to load a save, or try to cancel from the menu. I think you might have taken out some non-RTP music files from the latest version. Cancel2 was one of the missing SE's I noticed.

Thank you for the report. I will fix it as soon as possible.
Some things I noticed:
In your room, when you turn towards the packages, you get the message about the teddy bear. same happens with the bookshelf: if you don't face it, but stand underneath it.
At my knowledge, I didn't have a letter opener, but in the bathroom I was able to get the key from the painting with it.
After I had opened the Master Bedroom and got to the Red Room, I returned to the bedroom only to get the message the door was locked.

I'm stuck after that...

Might want to check up on your sentences. It misses some capital letters from time to time. Also, I would appreciate it if an inventory was added. Just so we can see what we have.

Thank you for the large list of considerably serious game breaking bugs. I will take a look at the eventing and see what I can do. I removed the inventory because I am fairly new to Ruby and could not find out how to remove unwanted item menu options. If there is a way to change that I will definitely look into it. Also, thank you for doing grammar check, I wasn't quite sure if i had grabbed all the errors. Your information has been very helpful.
This game kind of reminds me of insidious a little.
it is said that:

Permission Denied.

for all downloads, can you fix it, please?

thanks
This has been ignored for a while, huh? Played and submitted a review. I really enjoyed it. :3 Nice work.

Huh, it's been 10 days and they haven't checked out the review? Guess it is the holiday season, but...
Permission denied... and have to wait more 14 minute to try again -___-
crashes on loading game due to missing load sound. Also logic error where if you go in the master bedroom the first time but fail to get the piano sheets, and then enter the piano room, you will be stuck because once you enter the piano room, the master bedroom will become locked.

Game is pretty short exploring stuff. Pretty nice but also very basic.
