A downloadable demo

shroom soup (demo)

Synopsis:

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.

Info:

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.)

Warnings:

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.

Extract the zip file and double-click "StartWindowed" or "StartFullscreen".

i really like the game and the background art so i decided to do a fanart speedpaint bc why not. its kinda bad but i did it in under an hour

Hey, this is cool! Thank you :3 Reminds me of the sketches I made for the maps.

Thank you! And no problem, my dude.

I was excited to play the game but its not suitable for windows.. ;-;

What do you mean? It is for Windows (not for other OS, sadly). Is there a problem that is preventing you from running it?

Maybe it is a problem with my computer. Either way i support this game. I love the artstyle

Aww, thank you! <3 Let me know if I can help sort it out, it should work on Windows. There are a few let's plays as well if you'd like to watch it.

Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish once it comes out. If you do not mind, of course. <3

Hi Mel! I am very flattered that you want to translate it, of course you can! <3
You can also contact me if you need to discuss how to better translate certain things. (Can't help with Spanish itself, though, since I don't speak it. But that makes it especially cool to have a translation.)

hell yeah

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
