Oh this is exactly what I needed to see, excited for the (hopefully!) 2022 release! Are there any public demos out right now?
A downloadable game
Journey through an introspective, fantasy-filled land and unlock the secret encrypted on your phone before the world crumbles around you in this narrative adventure about closeness and distance.
✨ 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 Fez, Majora's Mask, La 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.
