Gameplay:   

This game has glitches if played on Win XP. The photographs are not active once taken.

The game is non linear. Any pages can be done, saved and move to another without finishing that location.

To save a game, click on window at bottom right. Exit question appears before the save question.

There is only one save and no load feature.                                                                

Press ESC skips the cutscenes. The trumpet adjusts the volume.

Use the whistle and the crumpled paper(s) in each page to for hints.

Several of the puzzles have several ways to solve them. The puzzles are solved by moving from one location to another and bringing back the solution.

I recommend to looking at all the locations and learning what items are found there.
