Design ethos: When we started our little 8bit journey we had a vision of reimagining the "adventure in your pocket" premise. Rather than another sword swinging dungeon dive, what I hope we delivered was more of a "moment of contemplation in your pocket" — we know it won't be everyone's cup of tea, and that's okay.

Awesome retro fun with a great story and atmospheric sound effects. Brings back the Gameboy vibe perfectly, recommended!!


OK I can confirm,  this is an awesome game.  Enthralling story and an engaging art style will make you want to explore the world more (I've been playing for a couple of hours now...).  

The attention to detail in the pixel art is beautiful.

The inclusion and use of the special items is very clever and I love the use of sound to help convey the different landscapes.

Great work!


very cool art style. 


Without thinking and a couple of hours went by...

This was a blast to get into. Very nostalgia inducing with the choice of color and gameplay. Many inspirations from those classic retro games I'd expect.

A suggestion to anyone wanting to give this a try, read the dialogues.... it really help...


I haven't been pulled into a story like this in a long time and I've really enjoyed it.  I am missing the first data though Not sure where to find it as the map says there's only 8 but regardless.  Well done. It really is a breath of fresh air and though there are stakes they're not so much that you feel stressed about it. 

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Aww. Amazing Roachrex. Thank you!

(Maybe visit Old Shaman Enoch, they know a lot of stuff)


Ok this is terrible! I just came here to check this game out and just realized I've sat here and played for hours. I need to work!

But seriously awesome game. Love the sound effects and the effect you get when you get hurt. (I got hurt a lot at first haha). The mood is great and I was drawn in by the story! I want more ... but I really have to work now. The struggle!

An eclectic adventure with handcrafted pixels. Dogma5 have created a rewarding sci-fi landscape reminiscent of iconic 2d games. The use of new visual effects blended with the pixel aesthetic is a lovely visual uplift. Play this game you will be pleasantly rewarded.


Lovely comment! Thank you so much
