You are a bowling ball, captain of a small sloop with your crew of bowling pins. You have been searching for "The Moon", a being that can grant any wish, since the start of time. You want The Moon to grant your wish of "being a famous pirate". You talk to a wizard, "Wizetub", and they tell you you need to collect 3 magic items to open a portal to the place where The Moon is supposed to be. So you do quests for characters, giving them what they want in return for magic items. You get 3 magic items the open the portal, on the other side you find a jellyfish creature and you ask if it is "The Moon" it tells you no and explains that you have been completing quests for the creatures of the realm, granting their wishes and that you are "The Moon" and have become famous for making everyone happy.
Every time I close my eyes I see cool patterns that look like the background in the game. I also wanted to make a game with weird characters. I was very inspired by a game called "Moon: Remix RPG Adventure".
