About this game

The Longing 400 day game
In utter loneliness deep below the surface, it's your task to wait for the awakening of your king... for 400 days.
Play as a lonely Shade, the last servant of a king who once ruled an underground kingdom. The king's powers have faded and he falls asleep for 400 days to regain his might. It is your duty to stay in the earthen palace until he awakens.
As soon as you start, the game inevitably counts down the 400 days - even when you stop playing and exit the game.
It is now up to you to decide what to do with your solitary existence beneath the soil. Don't stress yourself, you have plenty of time.

Choose your playing style
Start the game and simply come back after 400 days to see how it ends. You actually don't have to play the game at all. But the Shade will be even more lonely without you.
Or explore the caves and collect items for your comfortable underground living room. Just send the Shade to take a stroll - the walking speed is slow, but luckily there is no need to hurry.
Read tons of classic literature from Nietzsche to Moby Dick right in the game - or at least have the shade read them. After all, time goes by faster if you learn to keep your mind occupied.
Ignore the king's commands and advance to the outer regions the cave. It will be a long and dangerous journey into darkness...

Features

Delightful, also you can speed up time by doing things such as reading {which starting off they have like the whole moby dick book??? So I mean 5$ for a book with a game LOL} or playing music, there are lots of other things to do and secrets to discover, it feels great to play, as in it makes me feel comfy. Especially right now when I have lost all my friends over complicated things, to sit with this little soot guy and read or explore brings me peace.

Beautiful game with a simple premise that im already deeply enjoying. Art is excellent, the atmosphere is masterful, and the draw for me is real.
