“If you like Metroidvanias, you should play this game. If you don’t like Metroidvanias, you should still play this game.”
92/100 – COGconnected

“From the lushly drawn environments and detailed character sprites to the phenomenally atmospheric music that brings the game’s world to life, it’s a hell of an experience and easily one of my favorite indie games of 2020.”
4.5/5 – HeyPoorPlayer

“A wonderfully crafted Metroidvania that should have genre fans plenty excited. It's blending of combat, platforming, and puzzling keeps the gameplay fresh and varied throughout its entire 20-hour story.”
85/100 – PC invasion

About This Game

*Crash* ...That was the sound of you landing face first in an abyss filled with monsters, traps, and eldritch secrets. But hey, it's ok barbarian, you are not alone: Pip, your best friend—and mysteriously luminous bat—is with you. And it's only by truly working together that you'll be able to solve the abyss' puzzles, fight off its hungry denizens, discover its true purpose and maybe -just maybe- make it out alive with the secrets of the primordials.

Key Features
