Kafkahoi is a little shooter game with a special concept of controlling your charaktars.
You are a team of two little asterisks anywhere out in the wild -trying to survive and to collect the little sweet letters of a beautiful poem. One of you is the hunter, killing murderous flies with his sharp arrows and protecting you from a big ugly bug. The other one is the gatherer, never tired to find and collect the precious little letters.
But keep your powder dry! Your two little asterisks are a twirly little bunch, and you cannot control their movements directly -only influence their woozily fuss...
