A calamity is coming and you embark on a journey to stop it. You only have 400 years.

This is an experimental game about the passage of time. Don't expect swift action. Slow down and think, just don't wait too long...

Thanks for the front page NG !

Everything was perfect. From gameplay to music to visuals, to my favorite thing in a game: a good story. There wasn't much dialog, but that was beauty in itself. This being, silent as it always was, awoke from its deep sleep and left its peaceful cliff edge on the most selfless journey imaginable. It even takes a small detour to help the mortals on its way, never expecting anything from the people it saved. The ending was the strawberry on the icing on the cake! I don't know if I was the only one who felt moved, even with the cutesy imagination it was heartwarming in a powerful way.

My only "complaint" or "criticism" is that 400 years is way too much free time, so to speak. I suppose, however, that it's not even really a problem.

Wonderful Idea, Wonderful concept. I loved the game, I wouldn't not call this a game anymore but more an interactive artistic idea. The music was great for setting up the mood, the atmosphere, the sounds effects, everything. You don't need outrageous 3D graphics to achieve something well done and beautiful, you mostly need a story.. a script.. Something that would keep you wanting to play and this game has it all..

Nice job, well done. Please keep it up..

An absolutely gorgeous game, to be sure. The music is perfect for setting the mood, and the graphics are just what they need to be; the speeding up of villagers is top-notch, and even the sound effect for waiting is excellent.

To expand on what HorstDoerte is saying, if you find yourself needing a helping hand, remember that people will help you if they're well-fed. Help them to help themselves, then stand at the eastern shore of the village and wait. I've managed to get what I needed as early as year 58.

Also, my current record for saving the world is Spring of year 126. The secret medal was a nice touch, too; suffice to say, you'll need to go beyond the call of duty to find it, and tend your garden. I managed to find the secret and save the world by year 147.

All in all, a game with excellent mood and just the right amount of tedium (no, really) to convey the sense of a being whose best tool is the passage of time.
