will this ever be available on iOS mobile? After seeing the animation I have to play the game✨

I dont played it but it already looks so cool and creative! All like in Ena style (Find JoelG on youtube if u dont know who is Ena)


This is a wonderful game! A PentiumPunk style First Person Platformer and Collectathon, a wonderful short game. I had a lot of fun! And also a fantastic piece of proof that First Person Platforming is totally possible, if you're careful in how you construct your game world.


I know this game is a bit old, but man, it still holds up great! The gameplay is a 9/10 the story and characters are 10/10. and overall, it is just a tremendously polished title with nothing to complain about! keep up the great work, Luke! 


Ok, let's be serious. This is the best retro-like surreal game out there. The character design, the landscapes... truly a dream. Also made me remind of ENA's bizarre worlds like any other game did. 10/10.


i loved this game, thank you

uh im sorry but how do i download it after making a itch.io account? everything i find when i look up about it just says"press the download button" but i dont see one anywher

there should be an install red button at the bottom right. You can play the through itch. 


Awesome game! beautiful aesthetic and fun characters


Cool game, i loved the ENA inspired aesthetics


This games atmosphere switches up a lot, which I love.  Sometimes quirky, but other times dark.  I legit thought something would be chasing me at the last section of the game.  Playing through, I felt like I've seen this all before... then I got to the credits, Joel G.  Also, love the setting of the game, which takes place in a windows xp, I think.  And the best part?  A working notepad and terminal in the starting screen.  I wonder what happens if I click empty recycle bin?  I'm too scared to try XD.


this is legit one of my favorite games ever! its really pretty, the character and landscape designs are really cool and creative and its just fun in general! i could play this again and again and it never gets boring, love it :D

now its familiar like the character having a nostalgic things,a blue skin on her left side, and a yellow skin on her left side... 

 just say anything lol!


i wish there were more games like this. Very good game!!


i enjoy it a lot i give me heavy ENA vibes although i wish there is more to it :


Hey! I loved this game, but I noticed that there's a few songs in the OST that aren't in the game. I also noticed that there's a cheat thing in the terminal but I can't find any usable commands, which leads me to ask: Are there any secrets about the game I might be missing?


such a fun game :D 


Man, this was such a good experience! I would love to play more games like this :3


Played this game. I want to bite it and wring it around in my mouth (Positively)


This was actually fun! I love the graphics! It looks like Windows 98! A true classic!


Hello there, I really love this game it was nice but i have a few problems which i found out after seeing someone play the game online. i didnt know it was a problem, the letters and planes were missing for me and a ew other main elements in the map too. i played from mac and still do. i tried reinstalling it a couple times but its still the issue, they're not visible :') i hope this bugs can be fixed cause i or any other mac players wont be able to proceed with the game


Sorry you are having those issues. If you haven't already try enabling the "Disable Advanced Shader", this does change the way those objects are shown but at least they are visible.

If you are fine answering it on this forum publicly: What version of macOS are you using and what particular model of mac are you playing on?

No Problem! I will try enabling the "Disable Advance Shader" Option.  The version of my macOS is 12.3.1 and the name of the model is Macbook Air (13-inch, Early 2015) Apologies for the Very Late Reply, I'm still working on how to use the site's tiny features like this notification pop-up


Hello There! As per your advice, I tried enabling the "Disable Advanced Shader" They were Visible!
Thank you so much for your help! The entire Game Play was immersive and very Utopian! Loved the Game!

Very nice game and a cool tribute to ENA!

A very cute experience. Put a smile on my face. Creative!


I loved this game's style homage to the ENA series and it's short/sweet length in gameplay.


i cant play the game, whenever i try to play it,it just says that it cant find the code or something and reinstallng may help.But whenever i re-install it, it still wouldnt work.

love this game


I really loved the game! I even recorded my own playthrough of it. Now I would highly suggest to first play the game yourself before watching others!
Idk if I should link it, but since others did it, I might as well 

this was, enjoyable

this is the best thing i have ever experienced 

i love thisss!!

it's very very fun, I played in cool rooms and the characters are very coo

How do i play this

I love this game so much!! :D

I can't see the collectibles or the plane in the first level


wait what i though it was ena the character

Great! I loved it! Very inspiring.

This game was a lot of fun! It is like playing in an ENA episode

I Loved the game! So beautiful and creative.I had a lot of fun playing it. 

Thanks for your work <3


Hi! I liked your game a lot. Ena-like artstyle, plenty of various looking characters, and the old MS DOS system, when pressing esc/launching somnium. 

But there is also one thing i would want to know about this game. how to access the folders in the recycle bin?????? I collected ALL letters, thinking it would do it. But it haven't. So how to access them?

(1 edit)

Hello! I loved your game. The feel of the game was incredible, and I liked the concept! I wish I found all the letters >.> I also recorded a video on my playthrough!
