    This is not helpful because not everyone plays as the twins. I’m using the Knight, Time Traveler and Monk and cannot go any further. Plus the game killing bugs make this a 2 star game out of 10. Would not recommend.

    Sorry to hear you’re having troubles with the game, but we’re working on getting notes for each of the playable characters. Because of the branching paths, that will take a little bit of time — but, many of the puzzles are still solved the same way, no matter which characters you have.

    If you’ve got a specific problem you’re running into and need help with, please let us know! We’re all about providing answers here.
