Brilliantly made survival game. The mix of charming drawings, animations, and really in depth survival mechanics made this game actually quite a challenge to complete!

I found myself occasionally lost, only to follow the roads back to the house and realize it had run out of energy and I'd freeze to death... 

The resource gathering was perfectly balanced, I constantly wanted to go out and collect materials for the next thing available to craft, and the giant fireballs of death were very worthy enemies!

Definitely worth a play
