Note: This is the official release to Newgrounds of the Game stolen a few days ago by someone pretending to be me :( , if you've already played it, please vote how you liked it, though you should now play it with it's proper aspect ratio, it's much better :D

The idea behind this game was to push how large of a single Movieclip I could make each level, and in the process pay tribute to my absolute favourite game on the PS2, Shadow of the Colossus, which hopefully will be seeing an HD re-release on PS3 soon!

Play as a mysterious Pale Man of the North in a quest to rid the Kingdom of a most unusual plague, and in the process win the throne to the empire!

I hope you enjoy this little cinematic style game, I've really tried to squeeze the atmosphere in. Featuring music from Duncan Fenn of The Red Swan Hotel,which you should defintely check out in the link to the side and the as usual brilliant



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great work!

Wonderful concept :D I really enjoyed the gameplay but... why does the ending have to be such a downer ): I know you have your reasons but isn't the whole concept along the lines of no matter who you are you can accomplish your dreams and whatnot? Those words seem kind of empty after he got stabbed xD;


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I like this game! This isn't usually the kind of game that I like, but it was simple enough that it was sort of relaxing without being completely mindless. It was challenging enough that it was intriguing without being impossible. An overall good balance.

Sometimes the levels were a little repetitive, and because of the lengths of the levels I wouldn't play it again, but it was fun for the first time around. The checkpoints were definitely a plus -- the game was made more stress free knowing that you could easily return to a checkpoint before plunging to your death/running out of oxygen.

Over my dead body?

Isn't he dying anyway?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Game

The whole concept of this game is layered very nicely because it's mysterious and has a thought provoking feel based on the name of the chapters and the character's determination to be named an Heir. I really liked how it was fantasy, yet still somewhat realistic and (SPOILER) how even though he does do what is required to be named the heir, he is rejected by the king due to his pale skin. It's fairly upsetting that the end would just be rejection and murder, but that does seem like what makes it come together with the deeper meaning of high achievements. Needless to say, great game, great concept, nice graphics, nice effects, 10/10, 5/5.

Interesting Story,Yet A Sad Story Indeed

1:Unique Gameplay
3:Amazing Simple Graphics

1:Deep Story with a mix of a confusing story.Can't really keep track.

1:Slippery Controls
2:Laggy Gameplay
3:Too short


I love the uniqe gameplay and amazing graphics! Thing is,it's too short,and the complexity of it just makes it worse.Usuaully the game actually has something that doesnt guide you with lots of pathes,but still completes it.
Everyone answers this : Will there be a sequal!?!?!

Mostly no,the Pale Man dies,by the greedy king.Well,once he stabbed The Pale Man,he was just racist! He says "Letting a pale man over my throne? Over my dead body..."
And usually it wasen't fair because The Pale Man defeated those 3 monsters.But now,who's going to be king?

I love the uniqe gameplay,but laggy gameplay and slippery controls makes it just pleh! Not a good mix!

The story takes based on a rainy day,wondering who you are,you mustiv' though you were a non-human thing! (Or...Thing-y...) You have to climb the monster and defeat it on its head,nose,back,whatever you can find the weakness of the monster,once you defeat this monster stone guy you go to a flashback and you get to know whats going on,so after 2 monster defeations you get a cutscene reporting to the king he has finished killing the beasts,but then suddenly a sword stabs him and The Pale Man says similar like "What? Oh.....Ugh...." then The Pale Man gets thrown out the window and shows the king saying similar like "Letting a pale man over my throne,over my dead body...".But the confusing part was,was the king dead or not?

This game may have deep story,but confusing story as well.


Nice deep story,but some downfalls may collapse the game.
