Love this game so much. I keep recommending it on Reddit whenever someone asks for a "hidden gem" or "unknown GBA game". Not only are the puzzles decent (and the amount incredible), it's also just a very well crafted game with great graphics, smooth mechanics and a calm soundtrack.

Thanks so much for the kind words, it means a lot. I really enjoyed working on this game too. I hope to make more GBA games down the line.

You should, you are very talented!

I found the theme song in themodarchive before the game

Both are awesome!

Your game got featured on the arcane cache, a blog for well done underground games.

All in all, the game plays and feels very complete and furbished – much more so than any other console homebrew game that I can remember, and it incited me to burn much more time than I would want to admit.

Well done!




Old Concept... but a damn nice execution! Congrats!

fun chill game, but there seems to be a save issue when played on an everdrive x5 mini

what's the correct save type? SRAM seems to be the right choice, but the game won't boot when it's selected

Hey thanks so much for the comment. The game does assume SRAM, unfortunately I don’t have an everdrive to test with though.

The first thing you could try would be deleting the save and trying again.

Otherwise I believe Everdrive defaults to SRAM, do you happen to know which version of the firmware you are on?

I’m keen to try and get this working for you if you don’t mind troubleshooting with me. Feel free to get in touch on Discord (Jono#0378).

figured it out!

it's an issue with the Everdrive's quickboot mode (skips the bios after selecting a game), when quickboot is turned off it works perfectly

(for reference, Everdrive x5 Mini GBA, firmware: 1.16)

thank you!

Great game!

Love this. Really cool aesthetic and vibe

Really nice game!
