Wow that was lovely!
You Will Return
After millennia in space, an offshoot of an advanced civilization returns to their home planet. Instead of the warm welcome they were hoping to receive, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. There are no signs of life anywhere on the surface, and not even ruins mark where their people once lived. Except...
Except a vault is discovered! The walls inside are covered with the runes of an old language. Who built this structure? What is its purpose? Only by exploring the empty (?) halls can you hope to reconnect with your ancestors.
Controls: arrow keys to move, Z to scan, X to interact with menus.

Are you able to escape, or not?
Amazing visuals and flavor!
as a minesweeper nerd this is fantastic.
I adore the story! (I also already adore minesweeper.) When I got to the ending though I got a little confused about what I was meant to do.
Glad you like the story! I had a lot of fun coming up with it.
Do you mean the room with the two buttons, or the stuff after that?
