I have no clue how to get this to work / open.

I got as far as the butterfly landing on the flowers, then making them wave... but clicking the three figures only makes them mumble, and the mysterious lock in the cliff only rumbles faintly.

I got past the apple (strawberry?) tree, but then there's a "cliffhanger" type of deal where your companion falls and is hanging by a thread, so you reach down to try and save them -- closeup on the two hands grasped in desperation -- then fade to a Japanese Yahoo Geocities page of some sort. No idear what's going on or if I did something wrong or if that's just the end of the story.

I have a white screen.

Should I just have a white screen?

Firefox: white screen.
IE: success.

It worked for me in Firefox. Just had to wait a minute.

I have an animation, so I think you're not supposed to only see a white screen.

I had a white screen in FF at first too, then I viewed souce and just pasted the .swf address into the address bar. After that it worked for me.

Ooh I got it. This is cool.

If you can't see it, you probably need latest macromedia flash app. The flowers need to be clicked in the order that the butterfly lands on them (click all 'clickable' flowers first), then you'll get a key.

More spoilers - to get past the bear you need to go back to first screen and collect an egg.

When I got to the cliffhanger, I got a short episode of something in Japanese, then continued on to play more.

Pretty cool game even if I don't understand the text.

I'm with CynicalKnight, though. I think I'm missing the point of this. It's cute, though.

The boss at the end of the winter level is a pain in the arse.

Unrelated Friday Flash Fun... Aliens reenact Tom' Cruises anti-psychology rant.

Also, I only get a white screen. So I guess I should mosey on over to Macromedia and download the latest Flash is what I've gathered. Luckily I really enjoy moseying across the internet so I'm pretty excited. Also, Texas A&M just took the lead, that's freaking awesome.

I win too! What fun. And I love the artwork. It's almost like Maurice Sendak meets Brian Froud.

I won too. I found the game strangely disturbing... so I suppose, in a way, I also lost.

Dammit, Freudianslipper! Now I'm completely stuck! (*isn't good with puzzles, but tries them anyway*)

Holy crap, check out the homepage (English version). Especially check out the gallery. Awesome artwork.

This is reminiscent of Samorost! Love it! I'll be up all night figuring this out!
