About Goodbye Volcano High

The world’s about to explode. Just in time for senior year. Just Fang’s luck: they finally figure out what they want out of life, and now the world’s about to explode.

Ok. So the world’s ending—do you tell your crush your feelings? Fix your messed up family dynamic? Write the best song ever ever ever? Try to do it all??

Goodbye Volcano High is a story-driven, choice-based cinematic adventure game about personal growth, acceptance, and the power of community. What will you do at the end of an era?

Some of Our Other Games

You're far from home. You're not sure how you got here. But you do know one thing: it's your calling to help your new friends, however you can. But not all of them are being cooperative... From the award-winning studio that brought you GNOG comes Winding Worlds, a finger-wiggling puzzle-adventure about a girl, a Wurm, and how to say goodbye.

GNOG is a wondrous journey through a universe of playfully interactive monster heads. Explore a myriad of unique interconnected heads and the worlds they carry within, as you try to decipher each one's quirks and advance to the next. Interact with the outside to change the inside and vice versa to reveal the exit!
