A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

You're in an ocean, with no end in sight.
You can't swim well and you have a dinky raft.
How can you get back home, if it's even possible?

Made in 72 hours for Mini-Jam 26: Storms.

Press repeatedly on a save-file to delete itGo to menu (ingame)On raft: Left and Right to steer, both at once to move forward

Off raft: Arrow keys to swim


Find driftwood to repair/strengthen/rebuild your raft.
Big waves hurt your raft, and if it's hurt enough it will come apart.
Keep on the move, however.

The game automatically saves every new in-game day, when the game is closed and when you go to the menu.
