Hey, I’m back! And I’ve got a new game for everyone, check it out here:

[Play Online (HTML5)]
[Download for Windows/Mac/Linux on itch.io]

I’m gonna try to keep this short, but, aghhhhh, I think I probably do need to say something:

Back in April, I got covid for the first time. I was unlucky – it hit me pretty hard. I wasn’t really able to do much of anything for months.

Fortunately, though, I now seem to be on the way to a full recovery.

This game started as a tiny Ludum Dare project, and it was the last thing I was working on when I got sick. Maybe I should have just abandoned it at that point? But… it became a really good recovery project for me. A nice, low stakes thing to poke at whenever I had the energy. As I got better, and as I continue to get better, I worked on the game more and more, until the last couple of weeks where I was back to just working on it full time. Releasing this game feels like part of my recovery, like I can start thinking about bigger things again.

Anyway – I hope you all enjoy it, I’m really happy with how it turned out. And thanks for buying my games and supporting my work, and making it possible for me to do things like take a few months out to recover <3
