Not because there was some grand adventure to be had, but because I wanted to keep spending time with these characters. I wanted to see where their lives would take them. Embracelet is a brief glimpse into a beautiful world, and while I'm sad it's over, I'm glad I was able to be part of it while I could.

Mattis Folkestad, the developer behind Embracelet, has written a unique adventure story, with a gentle difficulty level. It’s a heartwarming story about setting out on your own and taking your first long journey from home. With themes of love, loss, friendship and family. Embracelet is a game where its story shines throughout the gameplay and pushes you with Jesper and his friends to discover the island of Slepp.
