Holy crap! Front page already? Thanks Tom!

Flatwoods is a small adventure game with two endings, built in the RPG Maker MV engine. You are Lemon, a small child that feels a great need to uncover the mystery of the "shooting star" that has just flown over your home and landed somewhere in the woods nearby. Loosely based on the story of The Flatwoods Monster.

This is my first game designed to be a quaint experience (around 30 minutes) for the player, and an educational experience for myself.

Controls: This game supports full mouse control and xbox360, xbone controllers. For keyboard play the arrow keys control Lemon and Z to interact with objects, Shift to run and X or Esc will bring up the menu.

For the best gaming experience I recommend downloading the executable for PC from:

You can follow the progress on this game over on its dedicated development blog:

cute game but its "thumbnail" suggests otherwise.

Short and sweet. Jake's music is truly standout, giving an overall Undertale-esque vibe that fans of that will enjoy. Excellent cut scenes and overall presentation, fun characters and great use of the RPG Maker Engine. I look forward to seeing more of your work, cheers on a great little game.

I feel like I missed a lot of dialogue/text on my first run. I will have to play it some more! I would love to see a continuation of this game.

As someone from Flatwoods I can confirm we're all anthropomorphic plant people.

The only thing bad I can say is it's too short. I love the characters and setting, I just wish there was more of it.

I learned so much about turnips.
