A downloadable demo

shroom soup (demo)


You play as Arnika, a gloomy teenage girl.
Perpetually tired, you live off excessive sleep, lime juice, and instant soup.
You look into the vortex forming in your cup of said soup, this time mushroom flavour. Next thing you know, you are in an entirely different world where everything, from buildings to people, is being devoured by fungi.

It seems like you have no choice but to walk on...
Your journey involves exploration, puzzle-solving and battles.


This is a demo of the upcoming free game. It should take about 1 hour to complete.
The game is made in RPG Maker 2000 VALUE! No RTP is required.
Also available in Russian!

(LGBTQ+ themes are prominent in the full game - not so much in the demo.)


The game features sensitive topics such as self-harm, depression, suicidal ideation and implied drug use. The full version has more than that.

There are scenes with flashing images which may be unsuitable for some players, and some art with busy patterns.

Recommended for players who are over 16.

Install instructions

Extract the zip file and double-click "StartWindowed" or "StartFullscreen".
If those shortcuts don't work, run "RPG_RT.exe" in the "Data" folder.

really great game..a bit confusing at the end but can't wait for the full version

Это было идеально! Рисовка персонажей потрясающая, сюжет интригующий .. что еще сказать? это шедевыр :D
очень жду продолженияя. вдохновения вам, автор1!
( концовка демо с грибочками топ ) п.с. Хотела спросить, в конце, когда гг оббеденилась с теми двумя парнями, почему их не видно? сори за тупые вопросы

Спасиииибо, рад стараться с:
Насчёт исчезновения парней - во многих пиксельных играх так делают, чтобы не париться с программированием "гусеницы" из людей. Плюс эстетические причины.

Love this art style and the fact that it's pixel! Makes everything better in my opinion, can't wait for the full version. ;D
