A downloadable game

My entry into the prestigious Harold Jam 2022: Dark Universe!


A hybrid JRPG / Zelda-like with some puzzle elements and a somewhat branching(ish) story.

Fairly challenging, using the Brave Turn Battle system for some strategic combat. (difficulty slider included for folks that just want to see the story!)

Forewarning, it's a bit on the longer side: 1 hr+ first playthrough.

Finally revisited this, got an alternate (absorb your friends) ending, and defeated that damnable Reid (so easy to miss)! This game really holds up. It was a total blast second time through.


Thanks for giving the game a second play through Human. Also, congrats on finding/defeating Reid! (he's tougher on Dark Path IMO, so hats off to your skills)

I'm still humbled by the reception this project received. Can't wait to see what the next jam may bring.

May the Harold be with you - always.

Huge fan of this one! Possible contender for my favourite, but there are so gosh darn many great entries this year!
