**GAME BREAKING BUG THAT LEADS TO SOFT LOCK**

Hello! I'm a vtuber who does rpgmaker playthroughs. This game is great and I will be writing a review soon, but I wanted to mention some game-breaking issues I ran into:( I'll go more in depth in a review, but I wanted to give some heads up on the bugs sooner vs later.

This is not the only one I've experienced, but it is game breaking. The other bug I experienced
when going to the office for the first time before the timed scene. Ironically the same spot I'm stuck now. There, chantico's ghost was visible and interacting with her gave the dialogue where she says the song and Alys comments on it not being the same as normal.

I'm currently trying to 100% the game and unfortunately I am now soft locked and won't be able to. Since there are not multiple save files, I also can't restore my game.

Here is a link to an unlisted video that shows what led to the bug, as well as what the softlock looks like while inside. https://youtu.be/5oxxiCzdf54

Here is a text explanation:

I'm going for the last ending with the "flower on the door". I was speedrunning the "mansion" puzzles since I'd already done them prior, and headed to the orphanage without knocking on Lysander's door. This is the only thing I changed in my run (I think? I'll look over footage and update you, as I'm trying to help narrow down where the bug occurred).

Once at the orphanage, all of the lights were on. I obviously was confused, as I had the lamp and was expecting the same darkness as before. I went to Moloch's office and was given a prompt from earlier in the game where I was told to hide under the desk, which was weird. Upon doing so, Moloch came in with sol and I watched the full cutscene. Sol is dead and we are playing as Alys, so the game seems to think I'm in a previous chapter. Upon leaving the office, I'm forced back to the timed scene to find the janitor keys.

This is where the softlock comes in. I can't leave the orphanage, as the gate is closed. I get the prior Eris dialogue. Next I tried using the keys to open the storage area, hoping to have Sol appear so I could kill her again and not be soft locked. Sol never appeared.

I decided to explore to try and find a solution, leading me to the kitchen where I talked to a janitor. This prompted her to scold me for asking about dinner, and for Eris to mention going to talk to chantico.

At this point I'm Alys, with access to the basement, while also Chantico allegedly being alive? All the chapter interactions are messed up. I thought I'd go to chantico's room to prompt dialogue with her. I know the only way to restore my game data is to get an ending.

Well. Turns out chantico is still dead, so I don't know what to do now. The janitor bedroom door is stuck open, the living area is locked, no option to open the password protected door, the janitor closet is locked, there are no npcs, etc. Also, the book of games for blind children is still on the floor in one of the rooms.

Overall I'm super sad to not be able to finish the game. I may have to bite the bullet and completely restart in order to get the first game over, essentially using it to bring me back to a non-corrupted version of the last chapter.

In order to help with potentially handling the bug, I will try to update this page with an unlisted youtube video showcasing how I got to it. Just keep an eye out!
