On Halloween, the barrier between human world and the spirit world thins. The spirits play tricks, the dead can be seen, and monsters can run their human world errands.

Set in the 90s, play as Ichabod, a pumpkin man who uses his chance to enter the human world to try and rent Jurassic Park from the video store. Unfortunately, the only copy has been rented by a teen who's brought a witch's curse upon the town.

Gameplay is inspired by the classics and the modern classics- a Zeldalike sense of exploration, with the tight, fast combat of Hyper Light Drifter. All soaked in a charming pixel art atmosphere and a dumb sense of humor. Playtime is around 1-2 hours.

This game is built in the open-source Solarus engine! For details, see:

This game is great! I just bought it after playing yarn town and its great. The combat feels good and smooth (the movement in general is great), the story so far is amazing and the enemys look good and are fun to fight. It reminds me of a top down hollow knight or just metroidvenia game. I cant wait to play more of this game and try some other games made by Max Mraz

9/10 It gets a 9/10 because even tho its fun it realy short


Thanks a lot, it's cool to found some new cool Solarus games :)
I take it now.


I am enjoying this game. Love the style and the music is amazing!


Thanks so much! I recorded the music with my little sister and a really old friend who was traveling through town, and it was a blast to do. I'm glad other people like it as well!


absolutely loving this game!! Accidentally lost a couple hours playing when I only meant to spend 30 minutes!! Finally checked the time and took a break after dying too many times on a boss fight lol but can't wait to go back in for more! ❤️


neat little game... I like your spritework and the level of detail in your map-design. The stealth section was a bit wonky since it was hard to see when you're really hidden. sometimes people saw me even though  was standing right in the middle of a bunch of sunflowers. Aside from that part it was very enjoyable.
