Meet Ava.

She’s a bright young girl who spends her days mapping the star-mottled universe. All her life, being autistic has presented obstacles that keep her watching it all from her telescope. When her brother goes missing, it’s up to Ava to leave the safety of her beloved home planet and find him. (3).gif

Where in the worlds?

In this narrative-focused 2D platformer, Ava must rely on her trusty grappling hook and other abilities to maneuver treacherous realms in search of her brother. But for such an undertaking, Ava needs backup. To recruit the space pirate friends she finds along the way, she’s got to apply her knowledge to help them solve their own social quandaries. (4).gif

Engage in the Enigmas.

As she ventures through the strange and mysterious worlds, she’ll experience interactive stories that her maps could never tell. Worlds are filled with secrets and hidden objectives waiting for someone to find them. By engaging with the universe on her fantastical journey, Ava recognizes, and utilizes, the strengths within herself.
