Story[]

The Main character, Naija (pronounced Nausha) finds herself sitting on a rock in her rest cave. as you go through the long way back to her house, dodging fish and leaning the mechanic of using the mouse to do songs, she encounters a stranger in a black robe, with their face being obscured by a glowing light. they touch her head and she gets visions, and truly awakens to the fact that she is alone. she realizes that she had lived her life doing nothing of note, and has a need to understand. after a while, you find the song cave and find a spirit in a crystal that gives you the "bind" song, that will let you move rocks towards you, and if used again, makes the rocks drop. using this, you go to the "energy temple" and gain the "energy" song, letting you shoot out energy at fish to attack.
