Wonderful and breathtaking

I finished the game and am going back to the chapters in order to collect all items and there seems to be an issue in chapter 3 (the one with the yin yang fish).

When I get to the part where I have to rotate the mountain in order to get the water to the hot spring to cool it down, there’s no way to make the water get to the hot ground. I rotate the mountain but since I only have the black fish, the mountain gets stuck in position and I’m unable to move forward past this part.

This didn’t happen the first time I played this chapter but now that I’m going back and replaying it there is this problem.

Apart from that this game is very beautiful and amazing!

Breathtakingly beautiful

I really loved this game, and what originally drew me (no pun intended) was the artwork, but the music really tied the game together. You can tell that a lot of work went into this game and it was executed very well.
I did have some problems since I only read and understand English and a lot of the game has parts written not in English. It would be nice if the developers included a way for English translations to be made available as it impacted one of the puzzles. Overall very nice and calming.
