Goodbye Volcano High is a high school coming-of-age adventure set in a world of anthropomorphic dinosaur characters. You play as band members, non-binary Fang and best friend Trish as they navigate the last days of high school. It's a mix of making choices about conversations, rhythm challenges and dealing with the ongoing drama of growing up.

It's the final year of high school, and graduation looms on the horizon. Your decisions (and rhythm) determine whether the students of Volcano High manage to figure themselves out before it's all over. As you talk to peers, walk the halls and get down to band practice you decide what risks to take with your heart and friendships.

"Sometimes I feel like I'm just standing on the edge of doing great things," says Fang. "But something's holding me back. Maybe it's just nerves. Maybe it's the fear that I'll never be as good as what I imagine." Goodbye Volcano High is about the beginning of a love story and the end of an era. In magical realism style, the narrative spins together an eclectic mix of teenage hopes for fame, fears about life after graduation, a potential apocalypse and budding romance.

The game is fully voiced and -- through exploration, dialogue and a range of cinematic minigames -- offers a branching narrative where you control the outcome through difficult choices with far-reaching consequences.
