Could someone provide a save file for chapter 6 just before the elemental game with krampus? I clicked the gear in the corner and went to the game menu and when I resumed I was in the hallway with the game symbols instead of the inventory and I couldn't do anything and loading the autosave put me in the same situation.So if someone has a savefile so I can finish the game that would be really helpful 

This game looks so gorgeous and I liked the demo very much!
Are you planning to release the full game here as well? I would like to get my fingers on it, but I don't use Steam.

Many thanks! Yes, we are planning to bring the game on itch.io the soonest

The game looks amazing. Just finished the demo. The atmosphere and the graphics were really cool. 

ps..that kid, the main character, is so cute and weirdly funny at the same time that reminded me a lot the good old LucasArts...dott, maniac mansion, monkey island..

Can't wait..keep it up!

thanks so much, we will do our best ;)

Such a great game, can't wait for the full release! Loved the artwork, animations and music; the snow effect adds so much to the atmosphere :)

It took me back to the golden era of the classics by Lucasarts and Sierra, this is a true gem for me, well done guys!!
