This game was made within a month for the IGMC 2017.

“We were out in the fields, collecting some food for the winter, when a crow attacked us and spooked my child so much, its soul escaped its body and clung itself to the bird!”


You play as a mouse, whose kid's soul was stolen by a crow. A strange ghostly voice gives you the ability to switch into the spirit realm.


Visit some creepy places no one but you can see and solve some Point n Click like puzzles to finally reach the crow's nest.


  • every of your interactions is at least slightly animated
  • hand painted environments
  • switch between two different dimensions

adorable game with some real story to it... hoping for part 2!

What did you make this in? VX Ace?


Loose of course on this but I do recall playing this and leaving my feed on it as it was a fan and creative title with rather superb artwork for the presentation that is note worthy and a wonderful atmospheric musical tone of course.


how lovely art style!


good God this is gorgeous


I really like the artwork and design, use of colour and the premise! Unfortunately though I got stuck but would love to play more if I can figure out where I'm going wrong :P.

Where exactly are you stuck. Maybe I can help you. :3
