About the StoryYou see it.
Today is the day they will come.
Their ship will crash, but the resulting explosion will trouble them not at all.
They will emerge, wrapped in shadows and smoke, from the wreckage.
Their senses will lead them unerringly to Kayla, wherever she hides.
She is but a girl. She is not at all ready.
And you will not be here to protect her, for they know your weakness: you must return to the obelisk before midday, or the poison of this world will kill you.
And Kayla will be alone.
You blink, and the vision fades, but it is no less true. You still see the traces of the future around you. The traces will last until the noon sun, and it is well that they will do so, for you will need them.
You can see the future. But is that enough to let you change it?

A hidden-object like game involving visions of the future, November 16, 2017
You have visions of the future, showing you that seven enemies will come and attack her.
You can do various things to improve her chances of survival, with each thing you do providing you with a new vision.
This was very successful in general, but I found it fiddly in two areas. First, some things weren't implemented; for instance, the first thing you learn about Kayla is that she has pulled-back hair and a simple dress. But if you try to examine either one, there is an error.
Second, the game essentially becomes a hidden-object puzzle. You have to scour descriptions for nouns, examine each noun, and hope that you find the right thing. Some solutions that seem like they should work, don't; like finding alternate things for burning/clogging, etc.
But I still enjoyed this game a lot. It has a nice map.

Your vision clears as you gently land in an endless landscape. There is the wind, a bleak and chill thing. And there is your sense of uncertainty: You don't know which way to go. Or, maybe, which way you went.
