Zissi has traveled from far away to visit her grandmother but forgot it was soon going to be her grandma’s birthday and didn’t get her a present. She must now search the island for pearls to make her a pearl necklace as soon as possible before it’s too late… after all, it might be her last birthday ever.


  • A pretty-big open world. Go almost anywhere at the very start of the game.
  • Find items to help you on your quest for the pearls.
  • Dynamic day-night cycle.
  • Talk to the inhabitants of the island to get tips or just find out what their favorite thing in the whole world is.
  • Relaxed Tropical Island setting.
  • Collect coins, gold bars and rubies to buy items.
  • Original art.
  • Multiple endings depending on how many pearls you collect (you need at least 20) and/or how long it takes you.
  • Sequence breaking? There are barely any sequences! Find out where a pearl is and go get it.
  • Sometimes you need an item to get it but you can also get items in a different order every time you play.
  • Controller and Keyboard+Mouse support (Xbox Controller recommended).
  • No bosses. The author said boss fights don’t “fit the carefree atmosphere of the game. Also, they’re hard to do and I rather have no boss fights than have crappy boss fights”.
  • The game is pretty relaxed and chill. If you’re looking for a challenge then this game might not be for you, unless you like speedrunning.
  • There’s backtracking. There is a way to turn on some teleporters that make moving around the island so much easier but you need to buy an item first and then bring it to a friend on the other side of the island.
