✨ Chat up the local Tanuki, learn how to translate Slimespeak, and explore every corner of your quaint home town until you've found all 60 collectibles. The game features non-linear, collectathon-style exploration mixed with RPG-style story quests.

✨ Dodge bullets! With 4+ bullet hell boss battles and a handful of challenge rooms, you'll have to learn how to platform in a whole new way.

✨ Experience a heartfelt story with a 100,000+ word count. Comedy! Drama! Social anxiety! Philosophy? We dropped the "silent protagonist" trope to create a heroine with her own personality and feelings — and she's always one step ahead of you.

✨ Work through old-school puzzles that will make you want to use the in-game hints. We aim to create a sense of wonder and adventure inspired by FezMajora's MaskLa Mulana, and much more.

Clara wakes up to a phone that isn't hers.

On it, she finds a perplexing message left by a hacker named the Gòd o͏f̴ B̴in͠a̸r̨y̧, who states that her time left in this world is short. Her only clue is a series of encrypted messages locked on the device — and a mysterious new friend who woke up to a phone that wasn't his.

What does this enigmatic hacker want? Why is he talking about the end of the world? And what does any of this have to do with Clara's quaint and peaceful life in Haven Heights?

All we know for sure is that if she doesn't embark on this quest... her friends will drag her into it anyway.

Are you ready to solve the mystery of the Ġ̸̱ŏ̵̲d̶̺̔ ̴̺́o̵̮̚f̴̹̆ ̷͍͝B̵̦̐i̶̤̾n̷̳̿a̵̘̓r̷͎͐y̴̛̜ and uncover the truth of this strange but comfy world?

Well... it doesn't really matter, does it?

There's no running from the truth — whether you're ready or not.

I've reached the level after the fox shrine. Now I have 2 chips left - One at the tall wall - where I can not put a BBQ cause the clouds need only the girl weight and the second chip is the time quest 15-sec which I get around 7 fans - how many do i need or they need to be in a sequence.
That left behind - enjoyed playing it. For know I'm at pause :-/

Thanks for checking out the demo! For what it's worth, you might be able to see some items that you can't actually collect until later (similar to a Metroidvania).

If you're talking about the Philosophical Slime's chip, you won't be able to get that until much later. However, it's possible to do the 15-sec pinwheel minigame right now. You can drink some black tea with Camellia beforehand to give yourself a speed boost, but it's not necessary. You have to hit all of the pinwheels to win the minigame, but they can be in any order.


Oh this is exactly what I needed to see, excited for the (hopefully!) 2022 release! Are there any public demos out right now?

Thank you! There's no public demo available right now, as the old one is fairly out of date. But we're expecting to reupload it by the end of the month, or perhaps some time in March.
