About The Game

Armed with a legendary harpoon, he and other castaways try to leave this hostile country to return to their homelands.

Through adventurous exploration, narration and razor sharp combat, the player will discover a strange world and its inhabitants, including Olija, an enigmatic lady that Faraday finds himself bound to over time. Inspired by swashbuckling tales and cinematic adventure games, Olija is a story about facing the unknown in adversity.

  • Explore a mysterious and handcrafted world inspired by sailor's legends and Asian fantasy.
  • Wield the Harpoon of legend and rethink movement through platforming, puzzle and combat.
  • Rescue fellow castaways and meet curious characters to learn more about Terraphage and the enigmatic Olija.
  • Beautiful melancholic soundtrack inspired by Flamenco, lo-fi and traditional Japanese music.
  • Craft magic hats!
