A downloadable Gretel for Windows

This is an entry for the Not Moe Jam 1. Theme is 'Lost'

You play as Gretel (this game draws inspiration from the Hansel and Gretel Fairy Tale), you are lost inside a magical maze, where the only way progress further  is to locate the magical lollipop and return to the entrance before your candles burn out. You can pick up Bread and drop bread crumbs to help you backtrack back to the beginning. Picking up candles will increase your time to complete.

Had to cut stuff out to submit something on time.

Stretch goals:

Your brother Hansel is a companion AI, he waves a stick around to fend off crows that would eat the bread crumbs you drop. You would also have a hunger meter, so you would either choose to drop bread crumbs or feed yourself. Dying of starvation would have been a second loss condition.
