Lovely game, but why is it so hard to rotate the camera? (Linux build, idk if that matters...)
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
iloilo is a tiny walking sim about a lonely fisher who's delivering fish to a seemingly abandoned island.
It's so quiet on the sea nowadays, makes me wonder if I enjoy it more this way?
Embark on the smallest journey by delivering fish to the island residents. Run around the island and make sure all fish crates are filled. A rotating mountain in the center of the island sure is an eyecatcher.
iloilo is created to fully relax and come to peace. To have a tiny break from life and compensate for the many tense action games.
- A wonderfully crafted island to explore
- Small story elements
- 100% completionist extra (find all story elements)

Thank you! This could be due to the Linux build, sadly I don't have the means to debug this.
is this based on the Philipines??
Hi! This game isn't based on the Philipines. The game just shares the name with the city Iloilo!
This was really cute and I wish there was more to it as I enjoyed walking along the Island and seeing the sights around me. The only thing I would recommend is adding instructions on how to fish as it toke me quite a while to figure out but maybe I am bit slow too. :)
I loved the island! I had a fun time exploring and learning more about the character. His favorite place is defintely mine too.
Thanks for making this jens.
A big sorry because I cant purchase it for my dad and mom sorry
Hey don't be sorry! The game is free for everyone and if you want and are able to donate then you can ;)
It was a great game to heal your tired daily life on a small island!
SPECTACULAR my dude!
How exactly do you pronounce the title?
Hello do you have plans to work on this further?
Hi there! Currently, I have no plans on working on this further, because I feel more like working on other small projects. However, if the demand is present, I'll gladly consider it :)
How long did it take you to make this masterpiece btw?
A week or two I think, I worked on it during school so it wasn't non stop work.
This game is so cool :)
I really enjoyed it.
Did you use Unreal engine 4?
according to the description of the itch.io page, it's made with unity
Thank you for your nice comment! Glad you liked it :)
As spookyfistpump said, I indeed used Unity for the development of the game.
I got a little confused actually since there is usually a few more files with the .exe for unity builds(like that monobleeding edge and unity crash handler etc etc)
I thought those were required to make the game run properly?
Is the song called just "Iloilo - Main Theme", and who is the artist? The mp3 didn't have any tag info
Yes! The song is 100% made by me :) Sorry, I didn't have much time, so no extra MP3 tag info. Hope you enjoyed it!
This character reminds me of Adventure Time.
This was such a lovely little game! I've been waiting a while to play it but it was so worth it- the visuals and the storytelling were so soothing. Amazing work!
I love this game! Fun !
Such a fun game i love it
I really enjoyed this game! It was so cute, and I really loved the atmosphere and character!
I've download it and the antivirus did not acuse anything... It's OK!
I've one unrelated question: When runing unity apps in other computer, windows always say Unknown developer, but yours it didn't. How did you manage to do that?
Thanks in advance!... I will play now!
I love this game! I am hoping to see a part 2 or a sequel
For some reason, both itch and Defender are treating the executable as malware. Haven't been able to play :(
Hmm strange! I'll try to add an alternative download link this week.
Same here (a week after this discussion.)
Detected as Win32/Bladabindi!ml by MSE. Like, serious hacking business.
Detected by 5 other antiviruses as well.
Seems to be mostly through heuristic research, though.
Maybe it's the installer or something?
The .exe is not an installer, it's just a packed version of the game. I have uploaded an alternative Windows download with a different pack. Hopefully, this will fix the false positives. Thanks for your feedback!
Simply put: This game was a breath of fresh air. So relaxed, calming and zen, but with some hints of reality, which, if anything, enhanced it even more! Beautiful art, smooth, simple, yet engaging gameplay, and a cute game overall! Loved it, and had to make a video to share it more!
The Linux version does not capture the mouse correctly. It captures the mouse but still if it hits the borders of the screen, you can not pan the view any further.
I wanted to try the windows version with wine but the downloaded ZIP file only contains the .exe which complains about a missing UnityPlayer.dll. If I install that one it complains about a missing data directory.
I somehow also missed the point that you already have all the fish on you. I wandered around the scene (battling the malfunctioning mouse movement) and wondered where to find the fish that I should drop until I accidentally "jumped" over a box once, dropping the fish. Maybe this could be made more obvious?
Hey! Sorry that you didn't get to experience the game in the right way. Sadly the Linux version is unsupported so it will not be as well maintained as the Windows version.
The whole fish dropping mechanic is indeed a little simple and maybe confusing, but I feel that I've finished the game and taken all the big bugs out so I'm not planning on releasing any big updates. Thanks for your feedback though!
Thanks for the vid!
when i run the game it plays for a bit then closes also has no crash handler should add one also after it closes it deletes the exe from the folder
whenever i try to open it, it just says that there's a virus or unwanted something. how can I fix this?
with a better antivirus
its fine with all other games I've downloaded though. its just specifically this one
like I'm using window defender or whatever its called and it says something g about a trojan virus, idk
Hmm strange, definitely a false positive. Normally Windows Defender will block every Itch.io game (because it's from an unknown source). I hope you got it fixed. :))
This game was super relaxing and I loved the landscape along with all the sounds too. Very beautiful and soothing. Awesome job!
the style and atmosphere are so soothing but the gameplay (namely the way the camera angle constantly changes so that sometimes I am unable to see my avatar and walk into the water by mistake) has actually made me quite tense- am I doing something wrong? I want to enjoy this game properly :(
Hey there! I'm not sure what you mean with camera angle constantly changing? You can use the mouse to look around. If you're not using your mouse for over 5 seconds the camera will automatically do a "cinematic pan", but will stop if you begin moving your mouse again.
I hope this helps! If you have any other issues, please respond!
Very relaxing, well done game! M1 Mac gameplay
im surprised when i see the title and named it one of the city in the philippines
Haha that's indeed where the title is from.
Nice, I was digging through the comments wondering exactly that.
Beautiful place, even in monsoon season!
wait do you live in iloilo cuz i live below it
This was hands-down one of the most relaxing and wholesome games I've ever played! I love the atmosphere, I love the design, I love the music, it's all great!!
Really nice game! It is featured in my Week's top 5! Check it now!
super cute! i love the style
Hi, I've made a video about your game and wanted to share some feedback with you, hopefully it is useful to you :)
-The visual style is quite brutal, I really loved it :D.
-The gameplay mechanics are quite simple and that's what the game needed, as they also feel pretty solid.
-At the video you can see that I've found some extrange things that sort of glitched the game.
-I just wished that the game had more depth as the story seemed pretty interesting, and also I wanted it to be longer.
In conclusion, the idea is great and I hope you take what you learnt with this project to make a bigger game. Hopefully this is useful for the you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)
Hey there! Thank you so much for your video! I've watched it and it clearly shows you had fun exploring this tiny island :)
There are indeed quite a few glitches, since I was very short on time it wasn't possible to clear them out. Luckily, I have some more spare time on my hands and will definitely have a look at some glitches.
Some people have told me to make a bigger game out of this, I'm not too sure yet but we'll see what the future brings :)
Thanks for your feedback and I've subscribed!
