Watcher's Woods is a game made in 3 days for PegJam 2018, where the theme was "Small Gods". As the watcher, you must speak with the souls lost in the woods and guide them to their final resting places. The game is endless, new souls will continue to enter the woods as long as you continue playing.

In addition to the original art Amy did over the weekend, we used some assets from her Spooky Forest pack to fill out the world. Special thanks to attendees of PegJam for lending their voices to Julian for sound effects! You can also listen to the music from the game here.

Very cute ghost game. Terrific presentation.

Feels like a tech demo or a minigame, not a full game. It has a good concept but it feels like not enough is done with it.

It is a beautiful and simple game. The atmosphere is hauntingly charming. I've never been smitten by Casper, but I thought that the little ghosts in the game are adorable. This isn't a game of clever plots, but for an innocently immersive experience, Watcher's Woods is a very pleasant one.
