A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A factory employee has lost their keys! Find them and get inside the building before your shift ends!

This is a video game! It's set in the Flora universe. You play as a goat and jump around.

Hm, well, there might be a little more to it than that.

Glip and I somehow made this in a week nine days for my GDQ game jam, GAMES MADE QUICK???. It's a little explorey platformer with a bit of gentle puzzling. Playing it straight through takes us a bit over half an hour.

Gamepads and non-qwerty keyboards are supported. No configurable keybindings, though — not enough time, sorry! Played with arrow keys, spacebar, and E, D, S (or whatever's under your left hand on your keyboard). Gamepads use A, B, X, and L.

The game itself is free and should be playable on anything resembling a computer, but if you chip in two bucks, you can also get the OST and some concept art.

Source code and changelog are on GitHub. The game runs on LÖVE, so it's all Lua. Other than that, a few utility libraries, and the excellent m5x7 font, it's all original work and freely-licensed — code as MIT/ISC, other assets as CC-SA 4.0. Please feel free to have a poke around! Preferably after playing the game, of course.

Current release is v1.2, Jan 31, 2017, 5pm Pacific.

hmm so there are two endings right? and is one of them supposed to have certain text loop forever? 

E, D, and S all did nothing, only space and the arrow keys worked :/

This is one of my favorite games of all time. I don't know why.

is there a bug in this game? I can't let go of the horizontal line purple block in a space it should be compatible with. It's really frustrating me! Great game other than that!


I love Floraverse.


What a delightful game :) I found it from forbidden flora's ad. It works like a charm on my OS X. Also, I read all your github commit messages and they are good messages, very nice.


Hey, thank you so much!  :)

Great art, music, and an intriguing world. The cat characters are great fun :)

Just wanted to let you know after trying to run your game, it appears it is not compatible with the newest version of LOVE 11.1. I received the following error...

This game indicates it was made for version '0.10.2' of LOVE.
It may not be compatible with the running version (11.1).
LOVE - Warning: main.lua:63: Using deprecated function love.filesystem.isFile (replaced by love.filesystem.getInfo)
Error: neonphase/scenes/title.lua:21: bad argument #2 to 'newSource' (string expected, got no value)

Yeah LÖVE isn't compatible across versions. You'll need to install and use LÖVE 0.10.2, as the error screen suggests, or use one of the pre-built standalone versions.

Also version 11 changed a lot of fundamental stuff, and converting a game from 0.10 to 11 is a straightforward but nontrivial process.

This game is so perfect for me, I had to share some gameplay! Pixels, pastel colors, space cats, a robot cat... Everyone needs to know about this!!! 



Ummm...so how do I get this running on Linux? I've never used LOVE before.

Install LÖVE and run the .love file with it — either from a shell ("love neonphase.love") or by dragging the .love file onto a LOVE shortcut.

Awesome! Worked like a charm, thanks!

This is a comment were you read and reply and you don't have to if you don't want to:

Hello my name is kpoloandteam and this has been one of my favourite games throughout the whole itch.io,I have been wanting to find a game that was 16-bit and was awesome.I found my type!People all know that this is the best game and if you're new to the game you should really get into it,its really good.Thank you for reading this comment.

I've been waiting for this game in a long time!I love how it looks and I love the styles and the graphics!Everything about it! (^ - ^)


Oh my gosh it's fantastic! I love all the little details, puzzles and interactive dialogues. Floraverse is such a great setting to explore in game form.


no pics = no clicks


There are four screenshots...?

Hello! I wonder - how to contact you about this game by email? :)

My email's on my website!

That was nice.


Lovely graphics, but I can't get further, because at some places the character doesn't jump high enough to get up to the next step. It would be nice if the jumping hight could be increased about 3 millimetres.


Sorry, that was a framerate-related bug — should be fixed now.

it's beautiful! I liked how the map is not-tiled :)
