A downloadable game for Windows


Done in under 72 hours as a Glitch Jam 1 project; the theme was "Hidden Forces".

We felt that metroidvania as a genre perfectly suits the theme as most metroidvanias are about finding some "forces"/abilities/power-ups hidden all over the game worlds to get somewhere you couldn't get to before. Of course, completing a real metroidvania in just 72 hours is impossible, so we've created just a portion of the world we envisioned - the first planet from the galaxy the game takes place in.

There's also a second theme-related element in the game's core gameplay: stealth. Our hero himself became a "hidden force" to be reckoned with.

Truno is a small thief with big ambitions in a huge world. And he doesn't want to slowly move up the normal career ladder - why bother when he could just steal all the ability-enhancing relics from the legendary thief, Phantomia? Onward, to her vault!
