A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux


You wake up in a boat with no memory, drifting in the sea of afterlife. The deities that cover the sky watch you drift to shore, where your fate seems to be cemented as a soulless wanderer.

This is, until you find a small shard of yourself. With a slight sense of self you now try to find the answers to your emptiness
