This is very hard to explain. So I first opened the game and started playing and I really liked it but as soon as I got to the healing elixir part it got glitchy. I do admit that I did the order wrong I put the orange and the elixir in the vinyls, then Lit it when it was supposed to be the other way around. It wouldn’t let me do anything past then I could go in all the rooms and do other things but it wouldn’t let me continue I couldn’t click on certain things. I looked in in the guide and the things that I should’ve been able to do I couldn’t have done. So I started a new game but all of the stuff that I did in the previous game was kind of still there for example in the room with the vile and you’re supposed to light it and add the flower petals in the coin that was already lit and there was already liquid in the bile I couldn’t do anything with it because it was already done and I couldn’t pick it up I can’t play anymore and I hope this gets fixed
Update: After waiting a day got pants the part of making he healing elixir but as soon as I got to new HOS things went south again. The items that it wanted me to find weren’t in the scene, I even used a hint and it didn’t show me. I found out that the items that I could not find in the previous HOS are in another one.

Also, inform us about your issue or just copy your review, so we will know. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I haven’t had too many glitches on my end except it sometimes won’t let me click on something that I know I need to pick up or sometimes it won’t let me pick up coins. My issue is that when I know I need something or to do something, I would like some sort of hint as to what I need. For example, when trying to do the elixir. It would have been helpful if I clicked on it and it said something about needing fruit or needing a light or whatever. Instead, I find myself using the hint and that sometimes just takes me to the map which is also not very helpful. I have been very frustrated with this game and I never get frustrated with these types of games, no matter how hard. Also sometimes when I try to use the correct item on what it is meant for I will get a “that’s not right” message and then click on the hint for it to show me that I was right but not getting it in the exact spot that the developers decided it should be so you have to me super exact
