Haustoria is a 2D puzzle-platformer featuring a unique "thumbtack" system where players pin and unpin game objects in the world to prevent them from moving.

Set in a hand-drawn, picture book style world, players will progress by solving puzzles, using levers, buttons, and thumbtacks.

  • Inspired by games such as "Inside", "Little Nightmares" and manga comics like "Uzumaki" and anything Lovecraftian.
  •  Make your way through strange woods, explore a cursed house, crawl though dark caves and avoid dangerous traps in an old dungeon (and more!)

A cosmic entity reveals itself to a young boy in an unforgiving picture-book world.
