All I can say is, this is a very strange thread to read without actually having seen the puzzle

Yes, Iím idle enough that I can read a thread, but not idle enough to solve a puzzle.

The theme of this game reminds me of "Cube"

Cool game but yeah very frustrating. Can't wait to see the next room. I hate the fact that you have to click in a very small area just to find certain objects.

Whew! Done it with the hints to keep clicking away, I was missing the second ring which isn't really hidden as such... you just need to keep clicking... HINT: Forget about clicking on the CD player in any kind of sequence!

well I seem to have all the stuff, and I got to watch the little dance show.....but now I'm lost.
I see no safe, no 'under the bed' and I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing here anyway.

There's no under the bed.

Pay close attention to the video.

Pay close attention to the video.
And... the thing that got me... Don't click it until after the video has disappeared from the screen.

This must be the most annoying and frustrating flash game I've ever seen. It breaks every rule about proper game design, and not in a good way. The only person having any fun in this game is the designer, as he cackles sadistically at our frustration. This person should not be allowed anywhere near Flash or any other tool that allows you to make games. At the end, where it asks you to donate towards making another room, I want to scream out to everyone, "No, don't do it! You'll just encourage him!"

I agree. Well, maybe not every rule, but a whole lot of 'em.

Perhaps I can feel a little less ashamed about my lack of progress then...

Well, when you have to click on the EXACT RIGHT area to get what you don't know you want, it's a bit tough. I even got one hint from someone, and still couldn't find what I wanted.

Considering the super-multi-click requirement in order to get the 2nd ring to appear, my opinion is that frustration was engineered in as a *requirement* to finish the game.

OK, I think a half hour is now officially the amount of time it takes to get stuck, and frustrated. I'm missing whatever is to the right of cassette. Must be important, huh?

Hint for a wuss like me?

There's more than one thing that you have to move the pillow to get to.

This is begging for a walk-through - something like the IKEA one.

Ahh, I got it... Some of those places you have to click to find an item are no where near where the item is at...

7 1/2 minutes using no clues from this thread. Would have been quicker but couldn't find the blimming second thingy that went in the box!

I agree with Tony on the crappy design - very annoying!

Thanks, Bitt. Saved what little of my sanity remained.

Is the guy serious about donations for another room?!?
