Unable to progress - chapter 2

I'm new to the game and was thoroughly enjoying myself until I reached the part of Chapter 2: The villagers after Hugo climbs the ladder that breaks. I have found the cage and used my sling to knock the cage down which Hugo then pushes over the stone wall, but here I can do no more....I am unable to climb up on to the cage, no matter what I try, what angle I come at it from, I do not get the 'space' bar prompt as with other objects to climb on and so am completely stuck. If i try and click space, Amicia jumps backwards away from the cage. Having only just purchased the game this is very frustrating ! please help.

I just got exactly the same problem! Found out that Hugo should continue to talk, but I don't know why he stops. After that I would be able to climb on that cage. Did you manage to do it by now? I would be happy to get a solution for that problem...

Thank you! This was a big help. . .
