A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

An evil spirit from the Dark Realm is invading the forest. You must find and pass through the Dark Realm gate to fight it. However, the keys to the gate have been scattered across the forest and across the departing realms. Departing realms are parallel dimensions, each a step towards death. Be careful!

This game was developed in about 10 days during the month of November 2017 for the GitHub Game Off jam. The big hook idea was the "demake" departing realms, each representing the game in lower fidelity, roughly approximating different bit platforms.

The game is best played with a gamepad, but keyboard and mouse work okay. There is just no sensitivity option for the mouse yet.

Music jammed out by Hryx. About 40 hours of development was streamed on Twitch and archived on YouTube.

I really enjoy the concept of the game, it is interesting. I spent a good time trying to find all keys.

Sometimes it is a bit difficult to see assets when only one heart is left, you
have to be careful not to die. Sounds really help here to spot incomming
skulls !
