    Lovely artwork.

    When I press down and up the browser scrolls up and down, making ths game too annoying to play. Can you resolve this?

    Does that even happen when you click the game window, then scroll?

    Um I got the ending where I decided not to eat and the villagers stayed at the bottom corner of the screen when I replayed. Is this a bug?

    The up & down issue is related to microsoft’s Explorer. Using Firefox solves it. In a way.

    Well, in short: There is a way to cure myself or a fourth ending?
    First ending: Sacrifice myself
    Second ending: Live killing the other people
    Third ending: Sacrifice after biting someone

    (I won’t probably check this page so please send the reply by mail):

    Well.. I have to say, this is WONDERFUL! I love these types of games… I have played through about a dozen times, and “completed” some story lines as fully as I think I can… I’m curious, though. Once I bite someone, what is the rationale behind the rest of the villagers choosing someone to bite? I want to know because it seems like some story lines, Petru’s and Simon’s in particular, seem to have a final conversation, and the next night the always seem to die. Does choosing someone in particular to talk to active some kind of countdown?

    please email me and tell me if there is a way to find a cure! I’m guessing it wouldnt involve biting anybody… but please let me know! cool game!

  9. Iris says:

    How do you find the cure?
    Is it possible?

    Great game. I really love the atmosphere, and the art style is awesome. Btw, no problems whatsoever or G Chrome.
