It's a relaxing hand drawn strategy game about light and shadow.
You play as a group of shadow fairies scattered in a dark forest, threatened by a mysterious glowing orb. The lost fairies have to find each other and gather under a tree to combine their power and find a way back home. They always have to anticipate which spots the light may hit in the turn, because once hit by light, a fairy petrifies.
Enter a strange hand drawn forest full of light and shadow puzzles, dangers and surprises. Discover a cute story line and help the fairies get home.
The game inspired by the game "Waldschattenspiel", a board game I played as a kid.
