An art game about constructed landscapes, place, and loss. The game starts as a flat plane with an icosahedron floating above the plane. Once you walk within a certain distance of the icosahedron it prompts you to open a dialogue, which is a stanza from a poem. And that's it. To progress through the poem(s) you are prompted to quit the game and return later. Every time you reopen the game the landscape is generated from all previous actions you took every past time you played the game. In this way, you're unconsciously building the environment that you'll later experience.

The poems are One Art by Elizabeth Bishop, Images of Little Compton, Rhode Islance by James Tate, and Neptune by Arda Collins. Through these poems the player follows a thread of loss, questioning, and acceptance.
