Why does my computer register this game as a virus?


This game is so simple but so great. I loved the music, the map and the way to discover, the gameplay. Is easy a 10/10 game.


Hey, i would make the game at html, flash is gonna die 


Yes, someone else also pointed this out to me. There is an .exe that you can download and play on your desktop :)


This game is absurdly good. It's proof that you don't need to mechanically reinvent the wheel to create something that feels unique and refreshing. The music, graphics and level design are superb, it even has a nice plot twist and (most likely) multiple endings. Congrats to the developer.

Hi MNWS. Can you make your game downloadable? Because the flash support will end in Christmas of this 2020.


Hi, thank you for flagging that up. I have converted the original .swf to an .exe and it seems playable. I was also able to play it on Linux through Wine.

Let me know if you find any problems, - and thank you again :)

The converted version works very well, thank you for responding to my notice, I hope all the other creators of flash games take into account the end of their availability.

That was awesome. I didn't realize what was happening with the map until I opened it for the first time at the last expansion, and my mind was blown. It would be cool if there was some sort of animation when you got to the key goal 3/3 and it showed the map expand. Navigating to that 12th key was super cool. There were some inconsistencies with map where it looked like things didn't connect even though they did. The ending was a super cool effect, but I'm a bit disappointed it didn't lead to a satisfying conclusion.

Super awesome game

Great Game! there was some pretty addicting puzzles lol

Very well done! Excellent map and the game is perfect entertainment for 1-2 hours.

I really liked the gameplay but the ending was absolutly not me gusta. Or perhaps i did something wrong? I got 12 keys but not the (spoiler) that looks like its unreachable and i also missed one spot on the map. Except the ending, everything was really nice.

I really liked it.

I had so much fun playing this game
The map design is brilliant

And the end was really cool


Great layout of the map. Definitely worth playing (even though I could only find 9 keys haha). Loving the retro look and feel!


Graphically it looks like a game made in Pico-8, but the music (it's great) makes the player want to play for a certain time.
