Avoid Light. Solve Puzzles. Pursue Answers.

You play a stone creature trying to find where your friends are going. Along the path, entering lights will cause you to lose control. You must move objects to create shadows that you can then pass through.

Light & Shadow Puzzles

Light blocks your path. Create shadows with objects to pass through.

Mysterious Story

Who are you? Where are you? What has happened? Find clues, view Memory Crystals, use environmental storytelling and narration.


Secret puzzles, stories, locations, and content.

Watercolour Texture

Customizable procedurally generated textures. Customize the speed, size, quality and look of the texture.

Skippable Sections

Find hidden 'Skip Crystals' to skip over that "one puzzle" and continue on your merry way.
