OverviewOverview

Embracelet is an adventure game, where you use a magical bracelet to interact with objects and solve puzzles. As you explore the fishing community, make friends and solve puzzles, you subtlety affect the outcome of the story.

This game is set in Norway and follows the teenage boy Jesper who lives with his mum. One day he receives an old bracelet from his grandfather, and he sets off to unravel the history of his family and of the mysterious bracelet and its magical powers.

The one-man team behind this game intends it to be a heartwarming adventure, with a gentle difficulty level. It's a story about taking your first long journey from home, with themes of love, loss, friendship and family.
