I shipped the game with an unfortunate bug related to staircase movement. The result is that you may teleport below the stairs at various points, two of which are quite bad:
- Within a flashback, if you're on the stairs when the scene transitions to the book.
- When returning from a flashback after "pulling" a corpse, if you were standing on the stairs when entering the flashback.
I've fixed this issue in version 1.0.89. Please make sure you have the latest version of the game.
If you have the latest version and you're still stuck, send a support request and attach your savefile. I'll manually repair the save and send the file back to you.
