Our first ever game, please let us know what you think!


The year is 3021.

A group of strangers from separate tribes,

stumble upon a mysterious artefact;

in the form of a lotus, an ancient instrument.

They feel it, and uncover sounds, samples of a distant past,

a coming together, through unity of communities.

They spoke:

"Those things that used to separate us, knowledge, distance, time, we've mastered them all?"

"We're closer than ever, yet so far apart."

"What can we learn from the past?"
