The forest calls to you. Some people say that magical beings dwell there. You know it better than anyone else. But the forest has changed since you last came there. Will you be able to find your way through?


Made with GB Studio and playable on an actual Game Boy or emulator!

Based on this Famicase by Taira Tominaga.

Entry for A Game by its Cover 2020, and my 2nd jam entry ever. I planned to make a puzzle game, but life happened (doesn't it always?) so I ran out of time and ended up with a short series of basic mazes. There are some camera bugs I didn't manage to squish, too.


Controls

Arrow keys / WASD: move

Alt / Z / J: A

This is a lovely little game, I enjoyed it. :)

That was fun :) If you ever flesh it out more, it’d be nice if there was a few more subtle hints that you had to ‘work out’ to get through the mazes, so it doesn’t feel quite so brute force.

Nice! I love the economy with which you told the story. We barely see the wisp, but I was happy it was with me!
