hey can I get a hint. I'm stuck in the basement section with the green fire and dont know where to go next. 

I'm not going to be able to get the video up tonight. It's already 8:25 pm here. Once I figure out how to get past the last half of the basement section I'll get the vid up

Did you open the cell with the chemical machinery?

I tried but it wouldn't let me. 

You have to find the key to enter the cell.

Ok thx.

English translation is on its way. But the game show old letters about slavery and we are struggling with those. But we are doing our best, and it's coming.

Wheeen is it done? :) Can you play it not knowing any French?

You can play and finish the game without knowing french, but you'll miss the lore, the setup, etc.
