A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This is an old Flash game we made in 2011-2012. Please keep that in mind if you play it!

A worthless stowaway; a nameless nobody.

You awaken on the shore after a nasty shipwreck.

Looks like the heroes that were aboard your ship have been swallowed by the sea...

...but their equipment has washed up on shore!

You must take up the mantle of one of these heroes!

The lightning that struck the ship seems to have come from an ominous tower on the cliff...

Was this where the heroes were headed?

Venture forth into realms unknown, and defeat the Dark Lord!
