SAI is a third person action game exploring Celtic folklore and deforestation. Set in a magical forest, players will discover an environment damaged and destroyed by onslaughts of machines. These metallic creatures wreck their way through the land to get to the core of its magic, the Heart Tree. Though its presence is now but a lost memory, the machines remain, determined to find this all powerful entity. As a Druid, protector of the natural world, you must explore this beautiful realm, harness the power that still lingers here, and uncover its dark past. Stop the machines. Protect the land. Save the forest.


SAI is Studio Mutiny's first game. As an eco-conscious Indie Games Development Studio, we made SAI because we want to make a difference. We want to reawaken the love and respect for nature we are all capable of. Therefore, we will be donating 80% of all revenue to conservation charities.

I don't understand how the estimated time was 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

If you consider yourself a gamer, you will complete everything in about 15 minutes.  For such a short game, I was expecting a bit more. Completing the game felt like a tutorial and I was expecting there to be a story beyond just the foundations.

Thank you for your feedback, we apologize for giving you false hope. The average playtime of all our playtesters was 45min - 1 hour, that's where the estimate comes from. Thank you for giving SAI a go.

Thank you for your response. Keep in mind that  QA runs will take longer than in-game play and could make your estimates inaccurate if you use the testing average for playtime estimates on future titles. 

Really glad I read TheKingsman's comment before buying your game. It looks really promising, is it still in development or is it finished?

Hi! This is the completed game, we hope that their playtime hasn't put you off buying it and giving it a go.

Yah, well not every body wants to just complete the game, take in the artwork and music

Completed all aspects of the game in the time given. My review is for the people who are experienced in gaming and easily steamroll the game while still collecting all the items. 

When I play a game like this with a small estimated playtime, I look for a plotline. 

It was so condensed that when I saw the credits, I thought it was the end of the tutorial and the rest of the story was going to be told. 

People more experienced in gaming are able to take in many things at once. I enjoyed the gameplay; it just felt way too short, and I felt like there was a story I missed out on because the game ended so soon. 

Again, the review is more focused towards experienced gamers who are more likely to finish in the time I did. 

Gotcha, and the game is $5 so the game should listen. Coming from a game devs perspective though, taking in the scenery is part of the gam

I am only part of the way through this game so far. However, it is already a very intricate and beautiful game. The graphics, while not insane are still very appealing. The music is relaxing, until you are in battle, then it kicks it up, which I really like (nice touch). I like when you shoot the bow that whatever arrows hit flowers sprout out, again with the drive for incorporating nature nice addition. It is a rather simplistic and linear game, which I actually like in a game every once in a while so this was a great way to get back to the roots. Lastly, not sure if this was intentional, but when the standard machine throws its range attack at you, you can shoot it out of the air if you are quick enough O.O for a simplistic game this is a very intricate touch. Thank you for a great way to relax and get some good gaming in. Very well made and would 100% recommend this to others. (I also gifted my fiancée a copy so thanks for the points there :D)

I would also like to add that I am a huge seek and find collector so the flowers really appealed to me as well. I also had a flyer run in to a tree branch, and it just started flipping out, almost like "WTH did I just hit", which was hilarious.

didn't know i was so close to the ending lol and i'm sure if i got all the flowers but it is a great game. Great job

It's a great thing that you try to 'reawaken the love and respect for nature' not by making a game that's really preachy and always talks about "wow nature is so great and people are all evil and try to destroy it" because we all know that doesn't work, but by showing how great and beautiful nature is, although the "machines are destroying the forest" is obviously the way of showing how people are hurting the environment, but obviously that is a real thing and it sounds subtle enough that it doesn't come off as the game telling you you're a piece of shit ruining them forests but still making you think maybe you should be a bit more careful with nature. And you actually use the money you get from the game to help your cause! I haven't bought the game yet, I just found it while browsng itch.io but it sounds really interesting, and I might try it later

Absolutely fantastic game! Gameplay was incredibly satisfying and the visuals on the bow really help to understand the mechanics. The audio was great and I love the atmosphere created which really helps tie into the story/message. Overall visuals are amazing. Clearly a lot of hard work and love went into this. Fantastic job guys!
