UPDATE: Thanks so much for the front page and all the kind reviews you've been sending in! Many of you have been stuck at a few key places/can't find certain items so I included some hints (spoilers) at the end of these notes. Hooray for Newgrounds!

Controls: Mouse to move, A to use your weapon/tool and S to open your stash.

Story: Your village is sacked and you're the person who's going to figure out what happened! Talk to villagers and run around aimlessly and eventually you'll find your way to one of the multiple endings.

Everything else: This is a small project I made with the desire to do some pixel art and have some fun with new game mechanics. I don't include very much direction in the game because I want players to explore as much as possible, even if that means getting pissed when a wolf comes up to you and eats your face. Music was done by my friend Jessie Landis-Eigsti, so hip hip hooray for him!

****** Hints and Spoilers *****

The Lute (5th Token):
Hidden (quite hidden) somewhere on the southern section of the map. It is not in a cave and you don't have to kill anything to get it.

Slaying the Dragon (4th Ending):
You need the 5 tokens before you're in shape to slay the Dragon.

Second Ending:
This ending is a bit of a spoof, when you get to the horse, don't catch it with the Lasso. Try something else...

The Butterfly:
It's just a butterfly.

Send me a message if there are other places you get stuck! Thanks again for the reviews, you guys are so awesome.


A little bit clunky for the control. I walk into beasts' mouth multiple times thought going to attack. offsetting the walking of the character to keyboard would do a lot of good.

People find this review helpful!

Like others said the control scheme could use a little work since attacking multiple times in a row is a little sketchy. But other than that a pretty funny and well made game. Only thing I'm wondering about is what to do with this fire badge....

the character movement ,to me really should have been arrow keys/wasd, or an active mouse movement. not the click click but a really good game

Everything is great, except for the music...

Anyway, I need help, I've completed the game in all 4 endings.
I got the fireball and everything, but can't seem to catch/kill the friggin' butterfly...

P.S. "A butterfly ate your face" I need to exact revenge against it for what it did to me!

Probably the best game on newgrounds there was a point where you had to restart because you got the bow a lot of people did not like this but I saw you said this was on purpose, so all in all this is a fantastic game no problems at all love it also thanks to you I discovered the game seedling which is a similar genre to this TY !
