The game is known to lag in Chrome browser. If the game is unplayable, consider using different browser to see if that helps.

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 ! <3



Rated 5 / 5 stars

A really unusual game. The perspective of time from something other than us short lived humans is most thought provoking. That and the meditation type music really did it for me.

I would have appreciated if one could walk a little faster - especially after you figure it out and need to backtrack but it's a lesson in patience isn't it?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Excellent game. Quite original. Patience is key. A slow pace is encouraged. Letting things do what they need to do, with occasional help from a benevolent being. An absolute gem of a game. My thanks for time well spent (even if it felt like four hundred years.)

i wish there was something to reverse time. i did not get the humans the grain and waisted 100 years only to find out that i have to waiste some time to help them. if a big, walking stone can cross the frozen sea then the tiny humans can do it too to get to the grain.

the first time i played it i waisted my time by trying to find out how i could get across the sea with the boat without turning the chestnut to dust. then the world burned to ashes because i had not enough time (i could not get that chestnut on the other side of the sea without it turning to ash) to continue. why not just step on a tree, wait and get up (like a lift)?

the music was good and relaxing.

Smart and relaxing, really nice experimentation, thank you!
(Maybe add an option to switch off character walking sound to enjoy music a bit more)
