PIGIAMA KASAMA is currently working on an ongoing project to create a video game using Unity. The project, titled "Little Roasted Chestnut" is an immersive Mixed Reality puzzle-platformer available on Meta Quest 3, offering a unique blend of engaging puzzles and dynamic platforming.
Players are transported into an enchanting world where they are tasked with promoting environmental sustainability. The game intricately combines puzzle-solving with elements of platform gaming, allowing players to interact with and transform the game world. A standout feature of "Little Roasted Chestnut" is its real-world ecological impact: profits from the game are allocated to tree planting initiatives, bridging the gap between virtual achievements and real-world environmental efforts. This novel approach provides not just an entertaining gaming experience, but also a meaningful contribution to ecological conservation efforts. The game involves the collaborative efforts of more than 35 creative professionals.

"Little Roasted Chestnut" revolves around three spirits born from special chestnuts. The first-born, Onpi, is the spirit of sleep, and with him, sleep is bestowed upon living beings who can rest and recover their energy. The second-born, Morphy, is the spirit of dreams, and he gives other beings the possibility of accessing another dimension while sleeping. The third-born, Luce, is the spirit of waking up and allows living beings to remember their dreams and then realize them. The player takes the role of the main character with whom these three spirits communicate and interact to progress through the story.
Pigiama Kasama has developed a working prototype of "Little Roasted Chestnut" using Unity, which allows the team to test and refine the game mechanics and gameplay. The prototype features several levels, enemies, and playable characters, giving players a taste of what to expect from the final game.

Story and Art
A sinister force has disrupted the balance of nature, stealing the chestnuts that once brought solace to humanity. The world is now locked in an eternal slumber, with humans taking on the form of Kasama, dream creatures born of myth. In this mystical realm, players must team up with three divine spirits - Onpi, Morphy, and Luce - and venture forth into the unknown. Along the way, they must uncover dark secrets, face down fearsome foes, and unravel the mystery of the stolen chestnuts to bring about a new dawn.
Pigiama Kasama has enlisted the help of a popular Vtuber named Orion to help promote "Little Roasted Chestnut" to a wider audience. Orion, a charismatic and energetic personality, has been creating engaging content to showcase the game's features and attract new players.
"Little Roasted Chestnut" is a collaborative effort that involves the contributions of more than 35 creative professionals. PIGIAMA KASAMA credits its talented team of designers, programmers, artists, and writers, as well as its partners and supporters, for their dedication and hard work in bringing the game and studio to life.

In addition to the game itself, PIGIAMA KASAMA has also developed a range of augmented reality (AR) filters based on the world of Kasama. These filters, available on social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, allow users to interact with the game's characters and creatures in real-time. Fans can take selfies with their favorite characters, or even battle Nightmares in their own living rooms. The AR filters serve as a fun and engaging way to promote "Little Roasted Chestnut" and connect with fans on a more personal level.
