Note: sometimes the audio lags behind the visuals in the online version.  The downloadable builds are more reliable, but refreshing the page seems to remedy the issue.

Amazing game. It was cool to explore the land you created. Would've been nice if there was some dialog after the final fight to explain a bit of the story, but it was still a cool experience

This game can be seen as nostalgic. Good ol' days of TIC-80, back when the community was still fresh and new :)


Played this at the end of 2022 and told myself 'I'd get back to it' (uh oh) and speedrun it. Well, it happened!


masterful!  this was so cool to see, especially the routing--excellent use of hidden passages!


This is incredibly well made. I really enjoyed exploring the island.


Awesome game! This looks really well made, and the fighting feels super dynamic. Love the day-night cycle and the music. Didn't finish though; I'll have to come back to this.

Completed the whole game!!! Died 14 times though : ( . But still a great game in every way I can think of!! 10/10 enjoyed it. You could do a better job at guiding the player on where to go like a point on the map or anything cause I was confused on where to go next to get the green orb but somehow found the huntress boss and killed her and got the orb. Game is also a little tough so it can be a bit of a challenge like facing the scholar boss in that pink mountain. Over all greatly enjoyed, a bit sad it gotten over.


 when your hp is low just forget fighting and run to the stone which is either glowing or not, it will reset everything and yes enemies you killed will come back alive but your hp will be regained to max and you will still have your gold use it on both hp and stamina, stamina is pretty important if you want to kill stronger mobs in the game later on.

Also avoid fighting the boss at the top of the pink tower because he is a bit of a pain without having enough hp cause reaching all the way top is the only difficulty other than that its just dodging the bosses attacks.

Collect as many power orbs as you can, they will make killing stronger mobs much easier and faster. Those orbs color are kind of silver blue-ish gray or something like that.
