You wake up in a dark cave with no memory of who you are, where you came
from or why you're in such a place. Uncovering Mimiga Village you discover
that the once-carefree Mimigas are in danger at the hands of a maniacal
scientist. The Mimigas’ only hope rest squarely on the shoulders of a quiet, amnesiac
boy who can't remember his own name.
Run, jump, shoot, fly and explore your way through a massive action-adventure reminiscent of classic 8- and 16-bit games. Take control and learn the origins of this world’s power, stop the delusional villain and save the Mimiga!
