A downloadable game for Windows

Winter has reigned over Pluto for more than 100 years. It has gotten so bad that most people cannot leave their house, and the alarming resource shortage means this planet is doomed to be destroyed. 

Unless Pluto manages to place 1st in the next Sorting Event - an opportunity which allows the winner to rearrange the Solar System. 

Chosen to be Pluto’s representative for the upcoming Sorting Event, Charon is training hard to prepare for this challenge. But before moving into the final stages, Charon’s mentor - Xander - wants him to hear a tale about the beginning of Pluto’s dark age.

That was a good experience <3


A very intriguing game! I liked so many things about this, the story, the concepts, the UI, the v atmospheric music, the artwork (esp how everyone on Pluto has A+++ style!), Charon’s narrative voice, and the way the game gives you a snapshot of much wider events…..

I wasn’t expecting puzzle elements but I did enjoy them (and fyi fellow lazy people, I briefly tripped myself up on a case sensitive input, so watch out for that!) and I thought they were a nice way to advance the story.

Anyway, there are so many interesting ideas here, I admit I was sorry to see it finish where it did! Looking forward to seeing what you do next xx


Interesting concept you've got here, love how you get to learn about the past organically through the narrative. The switch of the color scheme and the part where you have to figure out the code to get through to the next section were a nice touch. Thanks for sharing this! :)
