About The Girl of Glass

Markus Oljemark, an independent developer from Sweden, originally announced his title in 2016 as a part of the Square Enix Collective program, gathering a whopping 91% of positive recommendations from players!

It's an emotional summer tale that combines a colorful point & click adventure with strategic turn-based combat to tell the story of Kristal, The Girl of Glass. Her name isn’t a coincidence. She’s a fragile girl who's been granted asylum by the owner of the circus, where she lived and worked for years. Now she’s grown up and looking for the true meaning of her life. To do that, she decides to leave the circus... but it won't be as easy as it sounds...
