Interesting but crazy difficulty spikes

The game starts off pretty intriguing, but a bit on the easy side. By chapter 3 though, the difficulty goes through the roof, and there’s no hint system. The lack of a hint system in a story based puzzle game is odd. If you’re smarter than me, maybe it’s 5 stars!

Note: My previous review complained about progress being lost, apparently that was a bug and it was fixed.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! We found a bug in the save game code and fixed it immediately. The new version saves the exact puzzle you left at. Really sorry for the inconvenience. Bugs, sadly, happen.
