Kate's little sister Bubble is sick with a debilitating ailment. If something is not done soon, she will incur permanent damage. But, according to the village Elder, there's a possible cure - a multi-hued flower. However, it's located in the bottom floor of the spectrite mine just outside the village. So, it's up to Kate and her trusty slingshot to adventure down into the mines in order to procure the cure.

This is also an expanded post-jam version of the original Ludum Dare 32 entry.
