This game boasts a colorful, loungey aesthetic that reminds me of the Game Boy Advance game Wario Ware: Mega Microgames. The game’s mechanics seem very original, like a cross between The Lost Vikings and a RTS. The music selection is also pretty damn choice. It was pretty chill to just walk around in the game and bop things around with the arrow, until I accidentally startled the monster!

All in all a really neat game for this game jam.
