Embark on a semi-open 30+ hour RPG full of dark atmosphere, customization, and difficult combat. Inspired by games like Dark Souls and 1980s Dragon Warrior, prepare to die... a lot. This game is not for the faint of heart.

Multiple years went into the making of this game, and multiple more will go into it. The Wooden Ocean is fully complete but will receive free updates at least once a month until the end of April 2017. (then it will become seasonal or monthly until April 2018 and then yearly after that) The next update, The Island of Sand, will come in December with sailing, ship building, and 3 new areas.
