So is this game dead? Over a year with no updates at all. I'm still waiting for this to be finished to play.

Love this game so much!
Just played through Chapter 2 and agree, its more challenging. But also the atmosphere isn't that deep, like in Chapter 1, I think. Missing more of the cute glowing Squiddies :D Nevertheless - I can't wait to see, how the story continues! =)

I found a bug in chapter 2 where you get the diving bell and 2 glowing squid things. One of them set off one of the trip lights and the door closed, as expected, but the game won't let you relight the red gear thing that controls the door and trip lights, forcing you to restart the whole chapter all over again.

Other than that fine work on chapter 2.

Thanks for reporting this bug, and sorry for the inconvenience! Did the red light stay green, or did it return to red and simply stop responding?

The lights on the gear thing and near the door both stayed green even though the door was still closed.

Thank you, I will look into this issue. It sounds like it can affect any of the light switches, not just this particular one.
