A rare planetary alignment has transpired in the universe. The deep sea needs your help pulling Mother Ocean from her depression spiral for the water ritual to be complete. You must collect and deliver life energy pearls to the Nucleoid Portal to awaken her. You’ll receive mysterious messages, learn how to astral project and meditate with consciousness warriors as you navigate a fantastic deep sea world full of weird, alien underwater creatures. Will you be around long enough to experience universal oneness?

Astrologically, on December 21, 2020 a great cosmic conjunction will occur: the two largest planetary bodies in our solar system, Saturn and Jupiter, line up in the same sign at the same degree. This event, which astrologers call The Great Conjunction, happens every twenty years—but 2020's event is extra special since Jupiter and Saturn haven't been this close since 1623! We hope this piece of art, released on and about this alignment, helps us all prepare to receive the blessings of change, unity and evolution.

hey i noticed this is releasing on steam this month. are there any changes?

The date was automatically set, the full game release hasn't been announced yet.

i meant if the steam release differs in anyway to this. like should i wait for the steam or just play this

currently the steam demo is the same as this itch release, so either one. When the full game releases, both will be updated and should not differ. 


Love your workand this is no exception. What a lovely and lush world!! Keep up the good work you magnificent beast!


This is lovely! 

I wanted to say that it is possible to fly over and skip dialogue with the serpent mom and that softlocks the game.  <3
