A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This work-in-progress project was created over a few weeks for the Portland Indie Game Squad (PIGSquad) 2021 Finish Your Game Jam (which clearly I didn't).

The FYG Jam is intended as a motivator for folks with existing works-in-progress to focus their efforts toward finishing a project, but also offers a traditional game jam for folks just looking to create something new. I somehow managed to fail at both in that I jammed something brand new into an incomplete, work-in-progress state, oops!

Anyway, the theme for the jam was "artifacts" and my inspiration came from the recent ending to my own long-term relationship and the artifacts of "us" which remain.

I also decided for this jam to learn how to use Ren'Py -- if you look at my past projects, you'll see I traditionally use GameMaker Studio -- so I at least was relatively successful in learning something new!

This work-in-progress build offers a guided tour of my idea and intentions, can be completed in less than 10 minutes, and adequately showcases the core of what this game will be -- it's mostly just missing the extensive dialogue writing I would need to do.
