A downloadable game for Windows

Moontide is a solo passion project I worked on for the majority of 2020. (Before Tailbound, which used Moontide's source code and was developed over 2021.) Due to the game's humungous scope, along with my game design skills not being up to the task, I decided to stop working on it in September of 2020.

I do not plan on picking Moontide back up.

Considering that not many people ever got to play the game or see what it was, I've decided to make its first playtest build publicly accessible.


After being marooned, you're rescued by Captain Jonas and his pirate crew. You join up with them, only to be captured (along with Jonas) by the World Navy. You manage to escape, but are forced to leave Jonas behind... Thus, it's now your goal to return the favor and save Jonas.

However, that's easier said than done. The World Navy has their eyes set on the Full Moon Isles, and without Jonas there's no one to fund (or defend) the small town of Rogue's Rest. In order to save Jonas and, by proxy, the Full Moon Isles from imperial grasp, it's up to you to plunder dungeons and chart the unexplored Full Moon Isles.


The game aims to be similar to older Legend of Zelda games, while bringing new ideas and improvements to the table. I grew up playing those games, and honestly, I wouldn't be the same person I am today if it wasn't for them. It's my goal to make something truly special, while not re-treading old ground.

Looks nice but just to clarify... this one is not in similar fashion like Tailbound right?


This was in development & came out before Tailbound, TB uses its code & engine as a base, so no


Ok well .. I mean that this is not NSFW like Tailbound, right?


if you looked for the answer you wouldn't find it hard to learn that isomizu decided to not draw porn anymore


1. It is hard to find, you probably just stumbled upon it or keep up to date with all of their posts... I still can't find it
2. I looked through their patreon and yes this is SFW, for anyone finding this game later. It was only mentioned in a post from mid-2020

I'm pretty sure they posted it on twitter and itchio, not sure about the other places?

If that's not the case then I'd probably just stumbled upon it as you said, idk

Looks epic


Yo! Already finished the demo of the game
I enjoyed it a lot, loved every part of it

But for some reason the sound and music from the game doesn't seem to be working

Still, hope to see more in the future!


there isn't any sound. it isn't finished.

Oohh! I see
Still, keep up with the good work!


YOU DID IT! Congratulations, your hard work is here, actually here. I am so proud of you! 

Where ever your future goes, trust that it will lead to great things. Just remember to always show your awesome. Remember that taking care of yourself is also awesome. Be safe and a lifelong learner.
