Repair your broken fairy house! 

You built a cool house for the fairies in the garden, but the dog just stepped on it. Time to fix it up and make it even better this time! 

Run, jump and climb around the forest to find materials.


A sweet little (10-15 min.) narrative game inspired by childhood adventures and movies like Toy Story and My Neighbor Totoro

  • Explore the backyard to find parts to rebuild your fairy house
  • Jump and climb on rocks to get deeper into the forest
  • Experience a cute coming-of-age story with fun characters

Difficulty: Easy


If you have a buck or two to spare we would really appreciate it! We put a lot of hard work into this little game and might be interested in making a longer, bigger game, especially if we make a little bit of money on it.


  • Arrow KeysD-Pad or Joystick to move and climb
  • Z (or the southern face button on a gamepad*) to jump and interact
  • ESC to toggle full-screen mode
  • ALT + F4 to exit game

*Compatible with most gamepads (Xbox, Playstation, generic)

Originally made for the 2020 Global Game Jam, but expanded and polished up for public release. The game jam version of Fairy House won 2nd Place at the Microsoft Site in Manhattan, the largest game jam site in the US and the 2nd largest jam site in the world.

Looks fun, but I can't download it as it was flagged as dangerous & not commonly downloaded. 😟

:( Sorry about that issue, we still have not been able to resolve it. If you don't want to open the executable file, we recommend at least checking out a YouTube lets play if you still would like to see the game.

My post was 51 days ago, so yeah I didn't download it. Also, I don't talk via comments, so direct message me via my Twitter if you're trying to talk.

So much fun in it's small, quaint package -- would love to see a full game evolve off of this. It truly is amazing what you were able to do with just two colors! Love it!

We're building a fairy house today in this delightful little story about a mom who should be watching her child better and a dog who likes to break things.

Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.

Pure undeniable talent and vision from this team.

Can't wait to see what comes next!
