I love the concept of the game and I love the graphics too
Farm your land, forage in the forest and escape up the mountain. Off Grid, the survivalist/prepper roleplay come economic simulator.
This game has been described as a "Looper" by those who have played it. It has a core of actions that open up new bits of story and animation and if you repeat the actions the outcomes can be different.
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.

Interact with everything.
Visit the Pub for helpful advice.
Pray at the shrine for luck.
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 12 loaves or more, you can buy some cotton or some leather, you need 22 loaves in total to make boots and a rucksack.
When you have boots and rucksack, the second part of the game opens up, going up the mountain.
There are story threads to unlock, you get the idea if you try to tell a fake story in the pub.

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! 😉
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.
