What do you do when the river runs dry? Luna has always lived alone at the bottom of the mountain, with just a small trickle of a river providing her with barely enough water to survive. After a strange dream of a much greater destiny, she ventures out in search of a fabled lagoon at the top of the mountain. Join Luna as she traverses the dangers of the wild, discovers mystical powers, and finds new friends (and enemies) along the way. When The River Runs Dry is an adventure game where you can defeat dangerous monsters, find supplies to complete your trek, and make friends around the mountain to aid in your quests. Currently in development for PC, Mac, and Linux.

We did it! After all the blood, sweat and tears we have finally finished our first ever FULL DEMO of When The River Runs Dry!
We started coding this demo in earnest back in July this year, and now it's finally live for all of you wonderful people to play. The demo includes all of the story that those of y'all who came to our events got to experience, and also some never-before-seen additional content.
You'll get to follow Luna along as she begins her journey up the mountain, and meet creatures both kind and perilous on the journey. There's also a fun new combat sequence, and a mini game for you guys to try!

Crunch Time
We spent the last few months hardcore crunching to get this game put together. That meant generating tons of graphic assets and animations for new characters and scenes, coding up an absolute storm, and writing new music for all the new scenes! Plus, of course, all the usual marketing activities and other stuff that we get up to every week.
When The River Runs Dry is by far the biggest game we've ever made, and that means that the coding and art development of this is is no joke. We've really pushed ourselves to write code better, faster, and frankly -- less like a house of cards that might come tumbling down. And the amount of arts assets, y'all! We've really been pushing to get all of the fun characters that have only existed in our heads out on the screen for all of you to meet.
