Waiting for Newgrounds to confirm this...

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...

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Love it!

I usually try and find little things to criticize, or suggest improvements for things, but I'm really drawing a blank here.
This game was absolutely wonderful. The graphics were gorgeous, the music was perfect, and the storyline was amazing. I can't even say that you should have made it longer, or do a sequel. It was just perfect. The ending fitted the game so nicely, and it was easy, but challenging. Even in parts where I'd get stuck, It'd make it so I would want to continue, and knowing me, that's pretty impressive.
I love most experimental style games, and having seen this, I would love to see what else you can do in an experimental style. All I really can say is I loved this game!

Wow great story

Really liked the idea and the whole circle of life aspect to the game, it felt like you were exploring the guy's soul. Only thing is I wish the animals had a quicker pace and likewise for respawning. It would also be neat to see a prequel showing his actual life or something too, anyway good job man : )
