If words could move you, where would they take you?

Search your memory for familiar sentences across languages, and alter your surroundings by casting deciphered words as spells in this puzzle-adventure about a mother, a daughter, and a forgotten first language. Will you use context clues to fill in the blanks, or rely on making connections to decrypt the garbled phrases floating around your head? You can grow your vocabulary, and your abilities, by translating the worlds around you.

But with every interpretation applied, who or what is lost along the way?

No prior knowledge of the Tamil language required.

Developed by Team Coconut, the brother-sister duo Krishan and Viji Rajaratnam.
