Not able to get this to work on an updated android, tried john emulator, my boy, and nostalgia gbc. Halp?

Chef's kiss <(-_-<)

I've tried every thing I can think of but I'm stumped after getting the stone from the blind lady.  I lost my stick to the guard at the way station and the shop doesn't have another.  Can I have a hint?

Really gorgeous. Looking forward to diving in!


Wow! this is amazing, exactly what I was looking for!!! :) thank you!


This game is fascinating but also extremely confusing. I’m excited to keep exploring this bizarre little world 


Your use of color blew my mind. I had no idea you could actually use that many colors in GB Studio. Thank you for the inspiration, and opening new doors for my own game I am developing!

found a glitch select rock then press two arrows at once then it will flash the things of return and the tree things and it wont stop

I lit all three of the last king's pyres but the corresponding barrier didn't open. Is there something else I need to do?

Edit: Yep there was something else, didn't realize at first


I'd loooove to pick up a physical release of this!


If you pause in the shop and unpause, the shopkeeper moves back to position and you can't get out! :S




big fan of your work btw!!


Oh crud, I downloaded this because I've been downloading all the gameboy studio games I  can for my new flash cartridge, hours later I realize it's Evan Dahm?! Am a fan of Rice Boy and Order of Tales, need to catch up with Vattu  - I was excited to play this, but even more so now!

This isn't set in Overside, is it?  Anyway real pleased to bump into your work again. I hope 2020 is treating you well. Cheers!
