Short but very sweet, I loved the art style and the animated cutscenes were fantastic! Really nicely done.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Flatwoods is a small adventure game with two endings, built in the RPG Maker MV engine. You are Lemon, a small child that feels a great need to uncover the mystery of the "shooting star" that has just flown over your home and landed somewhere in the woods nearby. Loosely based on the story of The Flatwoods Monster.
This is my first game and has been designed to be a quaint experience (around 30 minutes) for the player, and an educational experience for myself. It also contains 2 endings, with the full ending requiring the player find all 8 pieces of metal located around the game world.
Mac OS X version requires Mac OS X 10.10 or better. (I have heard of some issues relating to the OS X version and these problems seem to the related to the way the WebM video format which is used heavily throughout the game runs on the operating system. I have done what I can to minimize these problems in v1.0.3).
You can follow the progress on this game over on its dedicated development blog:

this game looks really good and have you heard of soma spirits
I am glad you like the look of my game. :)

This game rocks! You should make a longer version!
I am really glad you enjoyed it. While I wont be making a longer version of this game in particular I will being carrying over some elements of it into my next project. :)
This was great! Please make this adventure longer!! 😍
Stay rad everybody!!
Thanks for the Lets Play, its awesome seeing so many people doing videos on the game. You actually get a different ending if you get all 8 pieces of metal. ;D
I am really happy to get to play this and I hope that there will be a lot more where this came from! Played it for the channel, and I also hope you like the voices I gave to the characters.
Awesome! Its great seeing another Lets Play of my game. Cant get enough of these, great tools for learning game design from. I look forward to watching and thanks for the support!
Hi, oh my how I liked your game. It's really funny and silly sometimes but in a good way)) Some of the Lemon's lines were like super adorable and priceless. Also those short animated-cartoonish scenes are just awesome and so detailed. BUT please tell me that it wasn't the end because WHY would you end it so soon?!!! Also before we actually saw the aliens?! And you mentioned 2 endings but I could only got one. And strangly enough I got the same ending even when I didn't pick the hatchet and wasn't collecting «metal pieces». So was there a reason for collecting those like at all?
Once again, nice game, loved it, even made a letsplay on it. Seriously don't you ever dare stop, please continue what you're doing cause you're really great at it :)
Sounds like you missed the metal piece in the chicken coop, if you grab it you will get to meet the Alien. :)
I am glad you enjoyed the game and im really glad you took the time to make a lets play based on it. I will be starting work on my next game soon so feel free to follow me for updates!
wow, thanks a LOT for the clue!!! I'll definitely check it!!)))
Oh, no it was my pleasure)) And actually I AM already following you))) So... I wish you the best of luck ^_^ I'm looking forward to your new game :)
This was very cute + good, I liked the lemon kid's expressions :D
Thank you very much! I am glad you enjoyed it. Drawing Lemon's expressions was probbaly the most fun of the whole project, ha ha.
i loved it! it was so cute. the animation was adorabs too! :D
*found a typo! unless it was intentional? "these are all to warn out to read tho" / "too worn out"+"though"
whelp, "warn" was an accidental typo and "tho" was a deliberate one, best of both worlds ha ha.
I am glad you enjoyed it. ^^
Been waiting for this one! Can't wait to try!
