Olija is a 2D action game that follows the quest of Faraday, a ship-wrecked lord on a journey to find his lost crewmates with the help of a magical harpoon. The game’s story unfolds in the mysterious lands of Terraphage, which are fully realized through the game’s atmospheric environments and stylized pixel art. Lord Faraday’s moveset revolves around melee-focused combat and is enhanced by his ability teleport around a level by throwing his cursed harpoon and warping to its location.
