A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Buy Now$1.99 USD or more

You find yourself on a strange island where the world has ended. Up on the sky you see the moon shattered, a city in the distant destroyed and a mysterious woman in an age-old outfit, biding her time on the beach as if none of it happened.

As you traverse this uncanny surrounding, you start to unravel its mysteries. In contrast to a conventional adventure game, there's no hand holding or de-mystifying the story by overexplaining.

In fact, in order to piece all the puzzles, you might need to look at it beyond the game itself.

This game is somewhere between a walking simulator and an adventure game. There's more interaction than a standard walking-simulator and it lasts about 30 to 60 mins, depending on how keen you are to find all the secrets.

Thank you for playing.

Not sure if I was supposed to be able to repeatedly break through the fence on the path and wander around the island but either way, you may want to clean up your game. 

Really much liked this experience! It's short but definately worth the 2$!
Also I think I found a Secret in the game but I'm not sure?

Stay Rad Everybody!!

It's hilarious, thanks for playing. 

Hello i have a game jam(https://itch.io/jam/unicorn-game-jam) and I need a prize, could you send me an email of the games code to get it for free(btw my email is: rohanpatwardhan@outlook.com). Thank you!

I am having trouble finding the system requirements for this game?

Added system requirements to the page. Thanks.

I was really looking forward to this, but the game doesn't lock mouse cursor to the screen. I end up clicking out of the game frequently, and to make it worse, the game crashed a few times when clicking back in before I gave up in frustration. 


Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Updated the game to v1.1 with the mouse cursor issue fixed.

An interesting walking simulator/story, it was also good that I hadn't read the description of the game so me encountering the visual of the moon and theorizing everything on a clean slate was fun. I got 96% completion, so I was a bit sad about that - does the ending change if I get 100%? Would be curious what I missed.

Thank you for playing. Hope you enjoyed it.
