What power a single melon holds! Crime and corruption abound in Hog Town where Honeydew’s friend, Cantaloupe, has gone missing from Eglantine Industries, the melon factory they both work at. As her search begins, an array of intertwining mysteries begin to unfold in this brand-new story-exploration game. Is the Cavity Crew a true threat? Is Kitten King the cause for all this? Cantaloupe will need to comb every inch of the green-tinted, pixelated world accompanied by the beats of the jazzy lo-fi soundtrack, to save the day in this monochromatic mystery.
