Ready to Start Your Misadventure?

You are stranded and alone. You were a passenger on your father's vessel that now lies wrecked on the shores of a mysterious land. As a high-borne lady from the north, you must take matters into your own hands and endure the hazards of your new surroundings. 

Atlaga is a story-driven survival game. To survive and grow, you must make challenging decisions in a harsh environment. Journey through hand-painted and atmospheric environments to unravel the mystery and discover the truth behind this unforgiving, brutal wilderness.

how do you get into the game to play it?

I loved that this game had as much depth as it did. I can say it was unexpected but it was totally worth playing.

This was super funky! I enjoyed it. It was like a vamped up version of the oregon trail. X

I streamed the game and uploaded it on YouTube. In retrospective I really enjoyed the experience even if I’m a bin critical in the video ^^

This game has good artwork and suitable music. If it were balanced better it would be very promising, but the way it is now is just LOL.

So I was doing really well on my fifth day or so and then I get one event that is a mandatory -20 vitality, and then the next event I get is a -20 vitality because I was attacked by a bear or whatever. I went from 40 vit and 4 heals to stone dead with no real input whatsoever. Thanks, game, but at least it was free.

4/5 rating

I like your Style friend, hugs


i love love love this game i love the art style  and the story and everything else please make more games like this


This game is phenomenal! Though text-based, it still tests your limits of your risk taking. The story was well done, and a mayor plot twist. The graphics are also very well drawn, colored, and even some animations. Keep making these types!

Thank you for playing our game and handing us this positive feedback... it means a lot :)

No problem, I genuinely like this game. Literally you can make a game similar to that of Pillars of Destiny. The story is on point. You guys have potential, and have a follower base that love your games. Seriously keep it going guys!


I found this really interesting with the usage of the Trial and Error method as well as meter/vitality management. Really goes to show that it's the journey that's more important, not the end goal.

Thank you Levont, our aim was to invite players on an appealing but different journey.. we are stoked that you enjoyed it :)


Amazing narrative and great accompanying art and soundtrack

We really appreciate the kind words and the thorough play-through!  <3


No worries, thanks for creating this amazing and captivating game!!



This game offers so much more than the average FPS everyone seems to gather around. To me this is much more enjoyable and valuable then some blasting adventure. The articulation alone in which this script was written made it worthwhile, but you didn't stop there. You added ambiance and art which truly brought this game to life. The trial and error style feature of game is ancient, but your unique twist on it has made this memorable. I know I haven't explored all to much, but I can certainly say without any doubt you have created a methodically fair and intriguing narrative. The very font you have chosen is extremely characteristic and wonderfully executed. This is the kind of game I needed this week and I do appreciate you offering it to the community for FREE. Mr. Lukas Gnaur, illustrating and designing this with your team is a great contribution to the indie community. Thank you for a limitless and wonderfully unique gaming experience.    

Thank you for the kind words and very nice video..we really appreciate it and glad/relieved that you liked our game!
