I made it to the end part of the game where you burn the four special items, and clicked the counters so that they fell and burned. The face in the middle of the fireplace began to open his eyes until they were white, and then....
...The screen went black and a notice popped up saying "an unhandled exception occurred" with a button saying 'ok' below it. I clicked 'ok'. The whole game closed.
So in other words, I can't beat the game without it crashing. I had VSync set to 1, and my computer's RAM is 4 GB.
Any advice/similar experiences?
