On a hot summer afternoon,
in the wake of a disaster,
A young man makes a deal with the devil
to bring back his lost friends from their untimely ends.
The deal:
"Get them to remember their True Names.
In these lands, you have all the time in the world.
But take heed: For every day you spend here
I'll take seven from your life."


Made for Ludum Dare 48

GAME GUIDE

Want to experience the full story? Follow this guide!

  1. INTRO
    • Before you can progress, you’ll need to test out each of the control buttons (WASD, Mouse, Left Shift, Spacebar, 1, 2, 3)
    • You’ll also need to look at your friends’ photos: Press Tab to cycle through the three pictures. To accept the Djinn’s offer, jump inside the well.
  2. LEVEL 1
    • Visit each of your friends (if you can’t find someone, look at their photos to see their current location).
    • Take each of your friends to their desired spot (Onella wants to go to the Lake, Tú wants to go to the Woods, and Mr. Treble wants to go to the Mountain).
    • (Using your house as a reference, the Lake is straight ahead, the Woods are to the left, and the Mountain is to the right.)
    • After you’ve taken everyone to their spot, go to the area behind your house and jump inside the well.
  3. LEVEL 2
    • Visit each of your friends at the location you took them to in Level 1.
    • After you have visited all three friends, go back to the area behind your house, and jump inside the well.
  4. LEVEL 3
    • Go to the three locations from Level 2. Something should trigger at each spot.
    • After you have experienced all three events, head back to the area behind your house and–you guessed it–jump inside the well.
  5. FINAL BOSS
    • When the time comes, you’ll know what to do.

Love the music of the third level. It's so pointillistic and captures the feeling perfectly. Bravo on everything.
