A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

My entry for Mini Ludum Dare 62 "Final Boss"

Notes:
* Version 1.0.1 is available as the post-jam version. I fixed a few bugs and did a bit for game balance. Also removed most of Edgar Allan Poe's poem because I felt there was too much text to read.
* the pre-battle conversation is super-rushed, but it's basically a conversation between a Hamadryad and her tree, who has used artificial means to extend its life. Her life force is tied to the tree's, so it's definitively a "final" boss. Hopefully not too pretentious. :-)
