Motivation

Spiral into audioreactive obscurity as you are transported to a mysterious and melancholy land. This game was created as an homage to the magical city that the developer, Eddie Lee, currently resides in -- Kyoto, Japan. When he first arrived in this city a few years ago, he was absolutely mesmerized by its beauty, culture, and majesty. Thus, he wanted to capture the emotion in the only way he knows how -- making games.

  • Serene graphics
  • Ambient soundtrack
