About This Game

Journey through a fantastical world conceptualised by artist Gabriel Massan, and featuring artists Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro, Novíssimo Edgar and LYZZA that investigates Black-Brazilian experience and the ramifications of colonialism on our ecosystem.

As an agent of a mysterious organisation known as the Headquarters you are sent to the territories of Igba Tingbo and Sòfo to fulfil a mission, but events soon begin to unfold otherwise.

Embodying different playable characters across two distinct, but interconnected levels, you embark on a journey through six kaleidoscopic landscapes, collecting special abilities and collectibles. As your quest unfolds and you encounter the native stories, characters and delicate balance of this world, you begin to understand another side to the story through the poetry, film and memories that are shared in this unique game.

An experiment in non-linear storytelling and collaborative worldbuilding, this game invites you to open your mind.
