A downloadable game

It had always been Lunaus' dream as a merfolk to see the world above The Barrier. The stories about the night sky and the endless lights twinkling with the rhythm of the waves had captivated them since they were little.

The only thing holding them back from living that dream is centuries of colony tradition... and their own cowardice.

Perhaps today (or tonight, to be more precise), will be the day Lunaus will see the stars? It is up to you to decide.
