Absolutely stunning texture and sense-of-place.
A tiny scenic story made over a couple of days in January 2018, using bitsy.

The location is loosely based on Carlingill in the Howgill Fells in Cumbria, UK. The name "Silverybield" comes from the (unrelated) location in this news story, which I felt was too nice a word not to use. Bield is an old dialect word for shelter.
Foss is the Old Norse word for waterfall, usually found as "force" in place names. You can read more about Cumbrian toponyms here, even though it has nothing much to do with this game :)

How did you manage to convey colors without actually using them? I see the forest!
This is really good. Makes me a tad reminiscent of the days when I would hike and go birdwatching.

The art is amazing :D Thanks for the great vignette :)
This was really neat, and now I know what bitsy is as well!
