Are you ready to uncover the legend?

The Girl Who Sees is a story-driven RPG combining WWII history with Philippine mythology and lore. In 1945, a young, village girl named Quina (pronounced "KEE-nah") Laban survives under Japanese occupation. She helps a dwarf, Edgar, translate a mysterious scroll sought by evil foes in hopes that it will explain why she sees Tagalog words wherever she turns. Explore the magical forests of Mindanao as you aid local villagers, interact with magical creatures, and restore balance between the human and magical realm. Collect Tagalog words and build your dictionary to translate the mysterious scroll.

Two play-styles makes the game enjoyable for both classic and educational gamers. In Battle Mode, fight against mythical creatures in turn-based battles. Craft potions to gain new special attacks. In Discovery Mode, fight creatures by answering trivia questions on Philippine culture, history, and mythology. 

This game was crowdfunded in 2017 with the support of the Filipinx-American community.
