Problem Solving

Collect and use objects to overcome obstacles. Many problems have more than one solution; use your creativity to help Dr Sarah save the village.

Story Telling

The actions you perform in the game create your very own story book. Your story reflects the problems you solved, so everyone’s book is unique. Read the story for yourself or listen to it narrated by Dr Sarah.

Game Play

Story Book

By the end of the game, each player will have created their own comic book made up of screenshots and actions taken in the game. Everyone will have their own unique story as actions can be carried out in different orders and secrets can be discovered that other players may not know about.
