About Trading Time: A Croak Tale

In Trading Time: A Croak Tale, a sailor is shipwrecked on a strange island after a terrible storm and he awakes to find his boat in ruins. Clutching his precious potted plant, the sea dog goes about trying to fix his boat and find his way home.

A spaghetti network of trades will take him all over this strange island as he seeks out materials to fix his boat.
