Hoa is an adventure game where you walk and jump through a hand-painted world as the mysterious main character. You solve environmental puzzles and meet magical creatures while trying to find your way back home.

Made by a Vietnamese studio, the title of this game means "Flower" in Vietnamese. The look and sound of the game is inspired by the wonders of nature and by the animated style of Studio Ghibli films. It is designed to be a cute, peaceful and relaxing experience. It's unusual both for its aesthetic and the journey you take back to the start of the story.
