A "puzzle-shaped" arthouse visual novel about a cryptic, yet familiar Seer... You can’t lose, but can you make it to the end credits? An atmospheric RPG mystery that invites replay and reflection on race, gender, death, humor, disability, sustainability, time, space and LGBTQIA+ themes. Use observations, timing and choices to... continue? Features English voice-acting, calm pacing, and (mostly) accessible scenes. Meaningful choices, minimum 15-minute play time. If at some point leaving the Glade, the screen is dark but you still hear talking or typing noises, just keep clicking! You’ll get through to the next screen.
