Indiegogo Campaign video (ended):


Check out the soundtrack!



The control setup is simple: You point and click where you want the character to go, and the same goes for all kinds of interactions. You see the game from a top-down perspective, but depending on the zoom-level you can move quicker around the island by zooming out to map or slower if you are zooming in close to look for a specific object or just want to read a sign or something!

Each episode will have its own set of puzzles and relevant NPCs, as well as various other changes. You are free to replay any episode at any time should you want to. If you get stuck, some NPCs will give hints to what you can do to progress, but don't worry, once you get into it you will (hopefully) enjoy it. :3

Each important place on the island will have its own music theme, so that you can just listen and recognise where you are without having to actually watch the game! We believe music is a big part of any game, so it is important that it sounds as well as it looks. :3

There will be over 60 NPCs to talk to, and lots of objects to interact with, meaning there are plenty of things to do, and hopefully this will make your play time a last a little longer should you choose to interact with everything.

You can probably tell already, but for the art style we have drawn some inspiration from Wind Waker, although lower poly. We want this game to look bright and cartoony, where anything can, and will, happen. :3

Some people have been asking what kind of puzzles this game will have. As every puzzle will be part of the process to finish an episode, they will need to be completed in certain orders, meaning that you unlock new puzzles as you complete old ones in long chains branching in several directions at once. Some parts, like in older adventure games, will have a bit more of a non-linear approach where you can decide which puzzle to solve first as part of the bigger puzzle. Any puzzle can be a part of a larger puzzle and branch in towards the final goal. Some puzzles are dependent on the time of day. The day and night cycle pass at a decent pace so don't worry if you should miss an opportunity. You will also have a watch you can use to speed up time to get to the point of day you need to be at in order to get access to a certain puzzle! Trippy.



1. The simple fetch quest.
A character on the island asks you to find, bring, or deliver an item. You might need to talk to some NPCs to get hints and clues as to where to find the items. Nag enough and some might even tell you very specific places to look! Some items require you to talk someone into letting you have it, or by giving you access to otherwise closed areas. It's important to choose the right things to say...! There will be several ways to find quest items, so feel free to explore! :3


 2. Item combination.
Some items require you to combine them with other items to form a new item that can be used to solve a puzzle. Let's say you have a bicycle chain and a saw. Combining them will give you a (rather useless, but) cool makeshift chainsaw that you can use to impress a character or cut down some ropes. The functionality of an item will be determined and explained by the puzzle requiring it, so there will be no need to go through your entire inventory to combine every item to see if you can make them match (we've all been there).


:3. Environmental interaction.
Things around you can be interacted with. Some for fun and some as part of a puzzle. These can be as simple as a lever that needs to be pulled, or as complex as an ancient artefact that you have to do research into by talking to characters and using your brain (given one was provided to you at birth) to understand how to work it out! Some environmental objects may require a specific item for it to function, and others can require a certain character to be present in order to work.



Mya is the protagonist of the game. She is a young woman local to the island, yet not much is revealed about her family, her past, or even how she got her house. She likes to explore, dance and try to bend her head around difficult things like puzzles! Her pockets are magically limitless in size. If an object is relevant towards solving a puzzle, well, then she can pick it up, pocket it, and carry it with her. Nothing is too unfitting for her pockets. :3


We are a small team consisting primarily of two guys who like to work on games. We also have a contractor to help us out with the code, and a QA tester who occasionally helps us out with device testing. :3

Øyvind Sørøy (founder, creator, artist, designer, marketer, etc.)


Responsible for what you see. He has worked in the gaming industry for a couple of years, joining Playfish in fall/autumn 2009 and then on to EA shortly after that. He worked on a range of small and big titles for them in a variety of roles. After that he went on to work for Plumbee for a year as a senior artist. He enjoys a combination of Blender and Unity for making games :3

Oscar Garvin (co-founder, musician, sound producer, etc.)


The guy responsible for what you hear. He is a fresh, young talent still in school, but has been granted time to work extensively on this project. He wants to get better at working for games, and is learning quickly. :3

Sixteen NPCs all together

They are a total of just 4151 triangles, which is less than one character in a standard AAA-game in comparison! :3

The NPCs will be divided into two categories: Relevant and irrelevant.

Relevant NPCs will have dialogue trees and some of them will give you stuff and advance the progress of the game. Irrelevant NPCs will only provide you with random insight into the island culture and what is on their minds. These are the first 16 NPCs of a total of 64 human NPCs that you will meet in the game. In addition there will be animals and other kinds of NPCs to interact with. Some might even be relevant! :3

If you want to help us out economically (to speed up the process of getting the game done), please donate $5 to our Paypal-account, and you will get the game for the platform of your choice when it is done:


Thank you very much in advance if you want to help us out! :3 We want to finish this game so you get to play it as soon as possible.

Well, some say she resembles Bellows from Suisei no Gargantia, and I can see it now. I didn't know about this series, though.
