The ultimate "stuck at home in a pandemic" fantasy. Centered around the home; Sleep, eat, fire, farm and forage, use your surplus food to buy goods at the shop, go on adventures and share your stories in the pub.

No guns here, however.

No save, no music or SFX.

Plant corn in your garden, takes about 3 days to grow. Just go up to the ploughed square and press interact button to throw seed or harvest mature corn.

When you have boots and rucksack, the second part of the game opens up, going up the mountain.

I love the concept of the game and I love the graphics too


Thank you. I really admired wink.

Thank you! That means a lot

Good game thank you! could not find the ghost tho...:(


To see the Yeti, you have to be lucky, but to see the ghost you have to be unlucky as it’s scary 😬. However, it might not be a ghost and it might not be a yeti! 😉

awesome, thank you for taking the time to reply, have an excellent day sir

Does feeding the chicken change anything?


Yes, just like economic theory, kill and eat now, or invest for a steady return. Feed it a few times and see what you get.


Wow great job! Is there an ending to the game? I told all the stories but what happens next?


Wow, great to hear. I didn’t create a definite ending as I wasn’t sure it needed one. What do you think? What does it feel like it needs? I thought maybe the pub friends put a statue up for you.


pretty interesting!

Thanks Redtree, did you get your boots and rucksack?




Thanks. Did you get swept down the river yet?

yes, hilarious, I tried to cross the river twice.


I recommend you pray at the shrine in the village (there’s a hidden economy of luck).
