The Cradle

Welcome to the Cradle, a long disused orphanage and asylum struck by misfortune two centuries ago. Nothing lives there anymore. Technically. It is not for the faint of heart. The Cradle has a mind of its own. It doesn't allow its former residents to leave, even if they've been dead for two hundred years. So you have to make the best of what The Cradle allows you to have. While this is less complex than some of my other games, it is also more engaging than most. There is an actual story behind this game, and the character is a real once - living girl. For a better gaming experience I recommend having the sound turned on and also a little reading done on the story. Credits for the idea goes to Ion Storm Inc. and Eidos Interactive for Thief Deadly Shadows - The Shalebridge Cradle, which was the inspiration for this game, and also for the soundtrack, a fragment of the original Shalebridge Cradle soundtrack. For the background 5-6 credits goes to Ecathe

Glorious and creepy game! The graphics are high-quality. The only thing I suggest is additional items such as horns, small, big, straight, curved, long, short. And maybe a little bit more variety. But this is super! πŸ™‚

Hein, Candy, there is an error. On page five the sentence about stacks of hay is repeated exactly like on fourth page. It is a little mistake but I think you should fix it.

Yea, and this game is really nice but I wish there could be more options. It even would be nice to see a huge game like x-girl but in horror style. I wish there could be something like that.

I have in mind a big update for this one, scene maker, adding the boy and lots of stuff, I wanted to make it last year but last year was really bad for me at making new games. Hopefully I will get back on track and making it till this year Halloween.

– Hm, probably cool game.
Thought I before started reading backstory.
“The structure was founded…”
Founded… founded… I will contact an administrator to ask for deleting my account, I don’t think I need it here.

Though I always wrote it before thinking, I’m of course sorry if I said something wrong but it is a mistake and I should write it here. The word “founded” is similar to the word “based” and it has nothing to do here. It should be “found”.

Hey, I think you got it wrong, it’s correct “founded”, it’s about the building.
Here is what I got from the dictionary:
1. To establish or set up, especially with provision for continuing existence: The college was founded in 1872.

Anyway I think that even if there was a mistake, you can spot it without being rude and also keep in mind that this story is written by someone that is not native in english.
If you want your account to be deleted please let me know and I will make it right away.

Ugh, I knew that leaving my account open will not end well. I’m really sorry for my sister and her rude words, next time I will always log out. Need to change password.
Especially I like that she asked to delete account. 10 x-girls outta 10.
Sorry again.

Hey Cecelia_DaFangirl, unfortunately at this moment the game doesn’t have a saving button, you can only make a print screen. Hopefully soon I will manage to reprogram it and ad a saving button πŸ™‚
