pirahna, you need to collect the pumpkin from that angry guy's porch, the candle from the fireplace mantle in the fancy house and the knife from the alchemist's toolbox. Combine the knife & pumpkin, then pumpkin & candle. You now have a jack-o-lantern/ward to get into the woods.
I really liked the alice is dead serie and am really curious over the next episodes of this one. It is a nice story telling with some unexpected turns. This one has a little bit more dialogue to it so far, and the objects are somewhat harder to find, but I would say that's a improvement over the previous serie, where some parts were a bid too straight forward.
