It's the season for penny buns, Grandma forced you to come along a bit. But deep down you know it'll do you good and take your mind off of things.

Lieve Oma is a short top-down 3D game where you go for a stroll with your grandmother through a forest.

You can pick mushrooms when you find them, but the real reason you're here is to have a discussion with your grandmother about the issues you encounter, coping with going to a new school, among other things.
