These guys chose the wrong girl to mess around, not only am I strong, but I can possess enemies with my soul!
Join me in a metroidvania style game, full of adventures, dangers and tea.
You know what they say, if you can't beat them, take over their bodies and make them fight their friends~
If you are curious about the game but can't play it, here is full gameplay without commentary:
This game may contain visual effects that have the pontential to induce seizures for people with PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY.
If you suffer from this condition discretion is adviced.
- The demo doesn't lag anymore
- the lava now has a texture so it actually looks like lava
Since we don't have linux, we don't actually now if the linux version works, We would love If someone who uses linux can tell us If it works!
Thanks to SkyCharger for one of the ideas to reduce lag
The game can be played from the exe without need of installation, enjoy!

Thanks! We appreciate your interest, we don't have Discord but we can contact you in the future If we need a beta tester for the next version!
Enjoyed the game but had a bit of a problem with it lagging. Other than that I like the game.
We're really glad you enjoyed it! We're doing what we can to fix the issues with the lag for future updates. Also, thank you for making a video, we really appreciate it!
I can't seem to download it on my windows laptop :( I tried both links for windows but it didn't work.
Does the version not work on your laptop or itchio doesn't let you download it? I could try uploading the versions in .zip format
final boss in demo starts to seriously lag in the second and third stage. (think most comes from the otherwise good-looking dynamic backgrounds needing too much render-time.)
yeah, maybe we went a little too crazy with the effects, I'm looking for some way to optimize the render time (since I would rather not give up on them)
Here's an idea: instead of rendering the background at full-res you could render it at quarter( or lower)-res and have the engine stretch it
Thats not a bad idea at all, I wonder if I could also do that for the normal tiled background, since Quinjao (artist) has some lag while playing normally, thanks for the suggestion, I will try it!
I don't know if it worked since the background is a tiled object (instead of a sprite), but I re-uploaded the demo letting the engine strech it and also touching anothers optimization option, I hope it fix the lag issues in the boss fight!
