One item of feedback. The cloud is very significant at the top of the tower, but it is not mentioned in the text. It's generally good practise to make sure that games are playable without graphics (GRAPHICS OFF), so writing something about the cloud would (1) be a clue for the player, and (2) be more accessible for players that play without graphics, or via the screenreading mode.

I had put a hint "Kids, beware of the wind of the storm that takes children away", but it's not clear, and a reference to the cloud is indeed missing in the text.
I got stuck. I thought I had to sit on the throne and "say caw", but it doesn't work.
"There is no reply."
First, you have to say "say caw" to the raven at the top of the tower.
I like this) I've won without using any encoded hints, but got only 5 points xD
This game doesn't have the technical finishes and subtleties of yours. Don't spend too much time on it. It will certainly be better for version 3 (but I doubt that by then my English and technical skills will have improved!)
Have you descended into the depths of the tower (lower levels 1-1001)?
Hi, I just learned you updated the game. I'm writing to ask that maybe you can make some hints for the game and base64 encode the answers. See the clues on this page as a baseline. I'm stuck very early on actually, after arriving on the beach a second time (after escaping the lake). I'd love to progress further.
Also, if you ever do publish the source code, I'd be happy to announce it on the Adventuron twitter page, just let me know if you do it.
Amazing little story. Well done! You also have some talent with the pixel graphics.
Thank you. But this is the game jam version; I'm working on version 2 which should be a little better (coming next week).
Are you expanding or just polishing?
I added a clearing and changed some of the game mechanics. I'm going to put the version 2 code displayed on GitLab, so I'm cleaning up a bit!
I'm stuck in the tower. found the mecanism, can't find how to pass through the throne. Don't know what to do with the crow.
Ok, found what to do with the crow. Used the torch, i'm stuck out now, with the troll, the fish and the butterfly.
