A short minimalist 2D exploration game. At all times the screen shows the entire world revealed so far, so it starts out zoomed into a tiny area with only a handful of pixels on screen; And eventually shows the entire incredibly detailed small world.

A perfect meshing of music, minimalistic graphics, and pace combine to make what might just be the ultimate exploration game.
