This game is better if you play my first one, ‘Home’, first.

A short story about the travels of an adventurer and a young girl she meets along the way.

E, left click or spacebar to advance text.

A and D or left and right arrow keys to move,
W, Up arrow or Spacebar to jump
J or left click to attack,
K, S or right click to dash in the direction you’re moving.
The dash can be used in mid-air or on the ground to dodge through enemies or get more distance with a jump.

All art, programming and music done by me. Made with Unity, with huge help from Fungus (an amazing free tool for Unity).

Thanks for playing!

I am so excited for this! I love it just as much as I loved the first one. It's simple but exciting and I love that it has more to do than Home (though I still love it too). Fantastic!

This was a beautiful little experience; a tiny slice of the creator's imagination that really resonated with me. I liked the text adventure portions, and the 'gaming' portions were just right. Great balance. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and can honestly say that the only gripe I have, and the reason for the missing half-star, was that this was far too short and deserved a longer arc. Get on it!!!

Very enjoyable.

What a beautiful and lovely game. Everything is amazing, from the story, to the characters to the music. Despite the game being on the slightly shorter side, it's definitely worth playing. The only criticism I have is how predictable the plot twist towards the end was. I don't know if it was just me. Regardless, awesome game, and I love how some of the characters at the end can be seen towards the end!
