If you're looking for a story - you've come to the wrong map.

Patched oil in visitors area
Patched being able to access visitors area at improper times

Added a explodable wall to visiting area
Added mementos and checkpoints to all areas.

SPOILERS:
LEVEL 1:
Spoiler below!
Edward's Key from the Study can be used on his door when you hear him walk out after the first day and only in this time frame
Spoiler below!
Upon the ending of the second sleep cycle a Monster will appear, you need to hide, you cannot escape until he opens the door

LEVEL 2:
Spoiler below!
Upon the sighting of the Monster in the first level, the Entry Hall becomes unsafe

LEVEL 3: STUDY:
Spoiler below!
There is a key in the room with the piled boxes that is necessary to complete the days task

LEVEL 4: CELLAR:
Spoiler below!
There is a simple pipe 'puzzle' here, attatch the 2 pipes to the pipe with steam emitting from it one by one, and the days tasks will be complete

LEVEL 6: WORKSHOP:
Spoiler below!
The 2 Resin's need to be combined using the chemistry pot, the Hardener has no use until later on in the story. After you have collected these things you have to escape.
Spoiler below!
This area is extremely dangerous, be careful.

LEVEL 7: BACK TO THE VISITING AREA:
Spoiler below!
Use the Adhesive on the broken wall near the 'Gallery' sign, then pour the Hardener into the container and stand back.

RE: The Servant's Trials

This looks wonderful my dear friend. I have a feeling this will be a scary story. Is it okay to call you friend? Otherwise I shall call you The guy who could been my friend but refused.

My name is Legion, for we are many

RE: The Servant's Trials

Added very early screenshots of 2 new levels, a visiting area and the Workshop - been busy the past weeks with uni so I'll be returning to normal development now.

RE: The Servant's Trials

By "painting" monster you mean a monster that comes from behind a painting ? Like the one from "Stephens meyers alpha adventure" ? (Hope I named it right xD)

Yes skype.

Uploaded another huge batch of screenshots - workshop is now by far my biggest map and contains 3 floors. I've put a LOT of work into this the past 2 days.

RE: The Servant's Trials

Began scripting, demo will be out in a week.

6 maps - Servant's Quarters(sleeping area), Study, Cellar, Entry Hall, Visiting Area, Workshop - biggest map I've played.
Servant's Quarters is a small map but new stuff happens after each night, the ability to sleep is linked to the objectives in the Cellar/Study using Global variables, so until you've done those you can't return to bed and experience the rest of the servant's quarters. Workshop is my largest map yet by a huge margin, 2-3 times the size of the Gallery.

RE: The Servant's Trials

Added some new screenshots, too many of the workshop to put in full screen - a lot of them show the story, and some show the transition of the rooms in the servant's quarters as you complete each days tasks.
