A downloadable game for Windows

Familiar is an asymmetrical co-op puzzle game about a witch and her familiar.

Combine your unique abilities to overcome obstacles and platform your way through a victorian style mansion to regain your amulet, your broom, and eventually your freedom.

This game was developed by Team Lynx during Valkyrie Jam 2019, a 10-day all woman game jam in the north of Sweden.
