IMPORTANT: this is a version that only shows some functionality, no-sound and very simplified map. It is not the final version.

Welcome to this preview of the game! This is just a demo to show you the basics, the final version will be on ITCH.IO.
It's a taster to show you the interaction between the device and the cards.
The full rulebook is in the works, so please be patient. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this introduction. Thanks for your support!

Don't despair if you find many imperfections in this tutorial, but it will be constantly updated during the campaign and afterwards to make it clearer and more usable for everyone.

So you quickly get ready and set off into the forest....
