A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

la·cu·na

noun.

an unfilled space or interval; a gap.

------

Vi is terrible at many things.

Unlucky, cursed, or maybe just clumsy, she can't seem to hold onto a job for very long.

Fortunately for her, evil masterminds need assistants, too. 

After accidentally breaking a relic that transports her to another realm, she needs your help to escape before her boss finds out.

------

average play time: between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on how well you can solve puzzles/follow directions. reading the sign helps, pal.

------

A short visual novel style game where you assist Vi, a hard of hearing assistant. Many visual novel games are based on dialogue - all the information you receive is based on what the character hears. I wanted to create a mechanic based on a hard of hearing main character, where some of the information that the player receives has the potential to be faulty.

------

Game was created using TyranoBuilder, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro.

------

password puzzle hint: use all lowercase letters.

This game had such a great concept! I've gotta know though, were you a barista? ^ - ^ Vi is such a great character! Thanks again for making this really amazing game!

thank you so much!! no, i personally am not a barista, but my sister and boyfriend are, so i hear lots of fantastic stories from them ^^; and sorry about the password part! that has been everybody's least favorite puzzle ehehe

lol it was definitely a challenge but I totally blame myself for not thinking about case sensitivity; I'm a terrible multitasker, so talking, playing, and thinking just don't go well together for me ^ - ^'
