The Hole Story

The Hole Story won Grand Prize at the Girls Make Games Demo Day Competition in 2014 and was recently released on Itch.io. Here’s the premise:

After digging up a strange portal in her backyard, budding young archaeologist Wendy falls through time into a strange new land. She quickly discovers that her best chance of returning home is to rescue Alonna, a princess who has gone missing from the kingdom. Her goal in mind, Wendy sets about resolving the problem the best way she knows how – by digging of course!
I only just bought it, but from what I’ve played it’s clear that this is a very charming game by a group of talented students. I’m looking forward to playing the rest of it and seeing what else these designers will make.
