Hey,
Have been playing your game, started yesterday, So far it's a very nice game I would be reviewing it after I complete it. So far I've played, made a very good story and game-play (*^^*)♡. But! I am kinda stuck at
Where I opened the double locked locker with a heart key where as it does show any text or description after gold lock is removed. It only mentions that it is a combination lock but it doesn't show any text after. Also I think I might get the key after I do something with the pack of crayon I have which I don't have any idea on what to do about it! Note: If it is not a game prob can you tell me what I should be doing! I need to know what happens next ・゚・(。>ω<。)・゚

And about dragonfly's noticing the characters head being cut:-

Thank you
Hi! Thanks for reporting those things! :) And thank you for your comments <3 I really appreciate them!

I'm really enjoying this so far. Like nahubih... wait wait wait. Instead of potentially being rude I'll just scroll up. Yeah, so like nhubi said you have an extremely good balance between cute and unsettling. The puzzles aren't too difficult and most of my deaths have just been me wanting to see what happens. I'm currently stuck looking for water but that's moreso because I ran out of play time. I'm going back at it tomorrow.

Two things worth mentioning though:
-In the house to the right side of the picture map, you can walk through the sofa in the TV room, complete with clipping.
-When getting the hat, if you take the hat from the bottom it's instant death. Not really a bug or anything and I just chuckled and reloaded but if more people complain then just move the hat.

Thank you very much ^^ Glad you liked it!

The second key to the safebox cannot be found in school anymore. You have to do certain things right in previous levels to gain it. I wanna keep that as a secret for now :)

The crayons are part of another secret puzzle though :)
I didn't have a screenshot of the sofa problem because I could really only tell when walking up/down on it (so I'd need to post a video and didn't want to bother).
I'm done playing, and I have to say ... AWESOME
This game is really nice and I've enjoyed it so far, but.....
I got stuck. I have one white flower, one empty glass bottle, three rose hips and two moth wings. It seems that the only thing I need to no now is to find a crystal water but I don't know where to get it....Could you help me, please?

ahem,
There's a path from the forest when you go up from the two paths at it's beginning. And go through the path from the gap between the trees!
Got it. It's so nice of you StrouBerri!:)
You've gotta update your front page. I recommended the game around a group and twice got a response like "I'll play it when it's finished."
I think that the combination part of the lock is important for a certain ...
part... er, but I'm not good at math!!! I won't ask for the answer... but could someone kindly please give me clues as to how to figure it out? I'm pretty sure it had something to do with the math puzzle on the blackboard in another room.

No, actually . . .
It's answer is in the pink book called Hailey's friends which is in the library. and you need to complete a puzzle to open it.
See, I did that puzzle chain and got the book open but it didn't seem to change anything so I just figured I had more that I had to do with it.
There's some teddy bears around that are save points.

IMO one of the first things any game should do is have a save point right after the intro dialogue is done.
I really want to save Oliver T_T But I got Ending #3. How do I save Oliver? Help, please? :3
Wait Multiple Endings? Wow, this is even better than I First Thought...
