I am in love with this game! So genuine and beautiful!
to build a fire
One leaf. That’s all. And if Xavier asks, well—
They’ll forgive you.
The sun sets on the potion shop. It’s a perfect fall night, and Thrush knows just what to do with it—steal a leaf from the basement, sneak off to the woods, and start a fire. Just a small one.
It’s Xavier’s last night at home before they move into their student apartment. It’s a dream, finally being admitted to Foxglove Academy of Enchantment—maybe now the world will start to make sense again. With their parents missing, their anxiety spiking, and their gender indeterminable, things have been a bit of a mess.
2 playable characters, 4 different endings, 5.2k words.
A few spells, a cute boy, plenty of hot chocolate, and many feelings.
