This game was made for the Nordic Game Jam 2022 and was originally made in 44 hours. We later hired two artists, one to do the characters, and another to do the item art, and found a composer to put a soundtrack together. We are still working on this updated version, but it is coming together nicely.

Our Theme was: Storage, Reunion, and Waterfall
