Once upon a time there was a great magical performer who entertained crowds with his tricks and illusions.

But when the one he loved died, he stopped performing and lost the will to live...

...until one night he had a dream...

It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

Could be more polished, but a good experience.

First off, I want to congratulate you on making a wonderfully atmospheric and emotional game; and the, admittedly used before, gameplay mechanic of taking other animals' forms for various different abilities in puzzle solving, was implemented incredibly well and incorporated in the game smoothly with a sense of originality for this well used mechanic. That being said, the collision detection and platforming mechanics were a little frustrating, but not that big of a deal, that is, until the last couple levels, where an amount of precision is required that the player control and collision detection simply can't maintain. I finished the last level only after becoming infuriated once or twice due to what should have been a simple task of jumping over a flame, only to die (in one hit) and respawn at the beginning of the level. All this being said, the game is a great experience not to be missed, with a beautifully blunt ending; you just need to grind through a frustrating last level or two.

Note: I played this shortly after spending a long time playing "Little Nemo: Dream Master," a game for the NES where you also take the form of various different animals in order to traverse the levels. So I was pleasantly surprised see the similarities in this game.

love this. love the animal transformations and settings. Thing is, it was kinda annoying to go back to the beginning every time I screwed up.
