Browser version

Uploads are currently disabled due to the gamejam restrictions but I still wanted to provide a browser version with very minor improvements to the original build.

Things that were changed:

  • Tweaked the appearance rate & order of the sources.
  • Typo's have been fixed.
  • Page numbers have been added to the diary.
  • Small transparant blocks around some of the text have been removed.
  • Instructions are now worded more clearly.
  • The answer page can be reached naturally by flipping the book. Not just by pressing the button on the first page.

Gameplay, diary & clue text has not been altered. So the experience should be 99% identical to the original version.


Background information

This is the story of Jane. She lived a long life in Holten, a small Dutch village. 

Like many other people in the countryside, she was born and raised in the same village. When she got older, she married the love of her life and had 3 children with him. She was a kind woman, but all in all, there was nothing special about her. 

All of this changed when her husband died, and she started living alone. That's when the rumors started. 

There are stories going around about her regularly stealing stuff in the local shops and even breaking into people's houses. Some stories even mention ghosts!

Was she going crazy? Whatever it was, there was definitely something odd about her.
