Bug Report! But love the game

Leaving a review because I don't know how else to leave a bug report.

I grabbed the berries and water for Itward, gave them both to him, watched him go inside his ship. At that point I returned to menu, closed the app, and came back to the game hours later. When I returned the door to his ship was closed and Itward was nowhere to be found. I can no longer progress! Good thing is it's not too far in the chapter so I can restart.

Other than the bug, beautiful game. I'm addicted to the story and can't wait to figure out all of Fran's mysteries! Thanks for a great experience!

Once more the new chapter brings fresh life to the story

I'll call Chapter 4 the "science and engineering" segment, although it's much more than that. Fran has fun with chemical experiments, machine repair, weaponry and aeronautics, among other projects.

I don't want to spoil the plot so will say little about the storyline of this chapter. You find out more about the true nature of Itward. The line between good and evil, as always, is shadowy and often deceptive; the details surrounding the death of Fran's parents are at once clearer and more confusing.

Gameplay remains top notch in every way. On to chapter 5!

Every bit as good as previous chapters!

This is such a refreshing change of pace from the other stuffy games out there -- candy crush, clash of clans, etc. I enjoy big fish games, but they've gotten repetitive. The Room games are amazing -- but so are the Fran Bow games!! I really love the suspense of what I'm going to see when Fran takes her red pills!! I'm a producer of horror films (yes, you've heard of them), and some of the alternative reality that Fran sees is very freaky -- and cool! Horrifically fun! Great job to the creators. I'm now starting part 5. 👍🏼
