This is either one of those "scary images that blast loud music at you in a dumb attempt to make you jump" kind of pages, or an actual riddle. Either way, I'm not even going to try.

Me too. I think you're supposed to name the thing in the picture. I don't know what it is exactly, and whether you write it forwards, backwards, in German...

Is that supposed to be a german twix wrapper?!

Thanks. Now stuck on page 8.

This is vaguely reminiscent of Treasure Quest. Didn't have much luck with that game either. Decent soundtrack though.

I dunno, I gave up on trying to do this puzzle for real. You have to have too much knowledge of coding and photoshop, not to mention the ability to make some very great leaps of logic, in order to solve it. I won't spoil it for anyone who wants to take a legitimate go, but some of those puzzles are just absolutely ridiculous. The early screens are fairly whimsical and fun, but as for the entire collection of puzzles (I got as far as #57 with plenty of help from spoilers), I don't think any one person has the knowledge or ability to solve them all.

But, I guess, if anyone wants a hint on any of the puzzles, let me know. I've seen the spoilers up through #60, so if you want a tasteful but not-too-revealing hint, reply here and I'll try to think of something clever. I've already ruined it for myself anyway.

Perhaps using Linux/Firefox isn't the way to go with this. Got to level 3 but am now confused/annoyed.

Meh.

Wow, you people aren't trying very hard. The first thing it tells you is that this is not a point and click game, and here you are, saying you can't figure out where to click to put the password in :P

I think he meant "who said I can't find the place to click to put in the password," which I suspect was taken from my complaint about not being able to figure out where to enter the password. I've played with the URL a bit and checked both the source and the javascript, and am still unable to figure it out. At a certain point, it becomes not worth the effort; I have better things to do with my time.

Yup.

With some prodding from FngKestrel I got to page 6 (I think) before giving up. Too much effort for so little reward. 57 pages? I cannot imagine how long that would take.

Took about 3 hours. The first 6 puzzles are the hardest, because you don't know how to think about the puzzle yet. After that, it becomes easy for a while. I had to refer to a spoiler for some of the puzzles, because some require Photoshop or audio editing software, which I just don't have access to.

Fun puzzle, but not for ADHD types :P

stuck on 7 here, got the numbers, just not sure how to use them.
They're not binary...
I even mapped them out using paint, see if there's an alternative button, no go. Or I'm just not mapping them out right.

Look at the source, of course, of course.
See anything interesting?
Have a look at that image.
See anything interesting in the image?
Make sure you're looking at the proper image...
