About This Game


The Negatives, Girls Make Games class of 2014

Story:

When an unsuspecting young girl finds herself transported to a mystical world, she must rely on her trusty shovel and quick wits to find her way home.

After digging up a strange portal in her backyard, budding young archaeologist Wendy falls through time into a strange new land. She quickly discovers that her best chance of returning home is to rescue Alonna, a princess who has gone missing from the kingdom. Her goal in mind, Wendy sets about resolving the problem the best way she knows how – by digging of course!


Features:

The Hole Story is a top-down RPG fantasy adventure created by a talented group of young female designers. Players solve puzzles by exploring the world and digging up clues in order to move on. As you progress through 15 increasingly difficult challenges, you’ll meet a host of humorous characters, unlock secret levels, and earn experience that can be put towards player customization and gear upgrades. Furthermore, clue and item locations are entirely randomized, so no two experiences will ever feel the same!
