A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


Phoebe wakes up one night in a pitch-black house. Her grandmother is nowhere to be seen. Patches of the forest ground had been sprung hundreds of feet into the sky on long, twisty roots. A tree monster clinging to the bottom of the yard offers to help her find her grandmother. He allows Phoebe to command his powers using fairy circles scattered throughout the world.


Solve puzzles by moving and aligning isles to create a path for yourself. Platform through a segmented landscape. Use the environment to defeat the cursed monster who is rooted to the end of your journey. 


Collect paper cranes hidden throughout the levels!

great jobs

My review on version 1.12.1 zip 

First off, I'm very impressed on the art and animation workflow of things nicely done everyone seem to do their part well.

Alright on to the review:

When I first open up the application it was automatically set to max volume, for a person like myself it doesn't bother me. However, someone was to play blindly they would jump on how loud it set to not sure if the game read my computer volume was set to max or so? The volume when I try pausing to test out if I could adjust the sound it did, but just immediately cuts off the sound all together. The music is good, but could really need another one or more music and not just two. One issue I have with the game was the intro to the first level where the character talks and after that stop talking in the rest of the level once the bird get introduced in the scene. Some puzzles may want to readjust the camera, so that way they would know where to set the puzzles.Some of the jumping may experience some collision during the jumping platforms someone like myself would get a little frustrated on waiting for an opening to jump.
