(Strange name, yes.)
This is a game in which you must form a party of soul creature things to help you fight other soul creature things. What plot there is you can find within the game.
To control yourself:
Arrow keys for movement
Z for going "back" in menus, for opening the menu when not in battle, and accelerating the dialogue (when held)
X for swinging the net, for confirming menu options, and progressing dialogue
To read signs/notes and to pick up items just walk over them. To encounter an enemy, stand still in a cloud and press x to swing the net.
A few gameplay notes: using a shard regenerates a soul, and defeating an enemy with a rune will capture it.
There is no sound nor music, feel free to vote 1 in that category, or N/A if you're too nice for that.
As you very quickly learn in the game, it is not nearly finished. The stats are unbalanced, the world consists of a single cave, and the number of creatures is six. I wanted to continue into the Jam to pump a little more content into it, but I had school.
I probably won't be working on the game soon, though, because I've got something a lot more exciting (to me, at least) in the works.
