Stars in the Trash brings the magic of animated movie classics into a narrative-driven platformer that combines action, exploration and puzzles. Tired of feeling trapped at home, Moka, a spoiled cat, decides to run away and seek adventure. His journey takes an unexpected turn when the kennelman threatens the streets. Moka needs to learn how to survive, and appreciate what he left behind, before he's going to lose his best friend and everything he had.


We love traditional animation. Our artwork is done using traditional techniques, directly drawn on paper. Our animation team worked for major studios like Disney and Warner.
