Pretty neat stuff, enjoyable to play. Nice art and soundtrack, and the puzzles were fun, if sometimes a little too challenging (big thanks for the guide!). Good job overall!

Thanks! Honestly looking back some of the puzzles are a bit hard but I'm glad you enjoyed our game :)

does anyone know the code for the lock chest in the main room or office

Hi Vampcute! I've posted a walkthrough here if you're stuck :)

thank you so much Devria ♥

haha np sorry it took me forever to make but yeah if that doesn't help let me know!

I'm currently stuck in the hallway, with the clue "SIT in the LEFT SEAT. Be PATIENT,", I don't know what to with that. Is there a walkthrough?

Hi Nyx! I've posted a walkthrough here if you're still stuck on that part. You can use the table of contents at the top to jump to the section you're confused on :)

I've been a huge fan of Ib ever since I saw a playthrough of it (so probably like 3-4 years at this point) and was super curious to see how this would compare to it, since it's obviously stylistically inspired by it. I loved Solm! You could see the inspiration from Ib in the art and atmosphere, puzzles, and even some of the events, but its storyline was fresh and novel. It definitely wasn't a cookie cutter genderbent version of Ib like I was dreading.

It's definitely shorter and the puzzles may be a bit harder, but if you like Ib, I don't think you'll regret playing this.

Thank you so much! We all really loved playing Ib and wanted to make a game in the same vein. I'm so glad you liked it!!

I can't figure out how to get the library's A. I've gotten all the other ones, am I just missing something obvious?

(Edited 2 times)

you have to go to the "A" shlelf and take like the A sign there. Do you know how to get the science ( or biology idk) one?

Edit: oh, I got it XD

So I am on a windows 10 computer but for some reason it wont open the exe file. Am I doing something wrong? I have winrar...

me too...

can i ask why can't i use the arrow keyboards on this game, I really want to play it but it seems there is something wrong?

the arrow keys should be how you move around and use the spacebar or enter to interact with things (if that's not working I'm not sure??)

where the fuck is this last A in the english room omfg

lol ok this one's kind of hard, the english room's A can only be found using another room to solve the puzzle (the clue on the teacher's desk is the key)

The game look interesting and I really want to play it, but when I download the game I can't open it?

Hi so this game is a .exe file. Are you on a mac maybe? To open exe's on a mac you have to use a program like wine bottler to open these files. If not here is how you can play the game:

unzip the Solm_v2.zip file which should open a solm.exe file.

Run the solm.exe file which will then extract a folder called Solm with a bunch of data in it.

Open the Solm folder and run the Game.exe file.

(sorry it's so complicated but that's how rpgmaker exports their game files. I hope this helped!)

Oooh, OK thanks! The puzzles are very interesting, though I'm a bit stuck right now;; But I really enjoy the game so far, and can't wait for any future game you might come up with (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
