 The planet of Sanctum was ravaged by a natural disaster many years ago.

The surviving inhabitants took refuge in a small patch of surviving green space.

In present day, the inhabitants of the small village scavenge the surrounding wastelands for materials.

The village is now burdened by mischievous prowlers, hellbent on eating every flower they see!

The idea and artstyle of the game are both very good, which makes it a little disappointing how short the game was, i wish there was more to it, a bigger world to explore and to try navigate back home, a system to gather resources to aid you in the wasteland, more dangers to worry about then just the psychotic murder chickens that roam the city, perhaps even dangerous weather to worry about.

As it stands its just a very short game with not a lot going to do

It would be cool to see more Sanctum. Also, why are the chickens so aggressive? :)

I'd bet it's a nod at The Legend of Zelda. Chickens in those games are famously angry.

Beautiful art, very inspiring!
