A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Being a shepherd is my escapist fantasy. I don't really want to be a shepherd, I know it's no easy job. But there are some moments where I just want to leave making computer games behind. Do real work with my hands. SOLITUNE is about these moments. Being not yourself. Wanting to leave.

Move from space to space and help out the others.

Nice, I completed this game only in 15 minutes, the quest is too easy, I hope you can update a harder quest

I'm stuck in the puzzle where the lady with the burning head wants a few seconds of standstill. Can't get the sheep to sit/sleep. Weird.

Hm, it should be as easy as just clicking each sheep. If it doesn't work, there might be a bug - sorry about that!

(1 edit)

the sheep don't have an outline on MacOS

edit: it worked on the fourth try

Thanks for the info. I will look into this.


Short, cute, relaxing.


A deeply personal, almost mystical look at the "what if I just left" fantasy we all feel at times.


Loved this! Covered it on my channel.

[I recommend buying the game before you watch the video. That way you can experience it yourself]


What a wonderful little game. I loved every second of it. <3

Lovely game! Super chill exploration, cool aesthetic and just the right length. I really enjoyed it

Looks very intresting to me.
