EDIT: Just uploaded an updated version with the musical authors in the credits.
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...

Good... but could be just a little better

I like it. I don't really understand people who say this game is insanely hard. I've missed just a few times. It's actually one of the easiest games because, I think, author wanted to focus on story. The only thing that game should be longer, maybe. And pause beetween last replic and logo appearance should be longer, too. Because this logo and sound hanged me out of story, I've lost it. So please, next time do credits or something to separate game and sponsor's ads.

It was an ok game

The concept was nice and "cute" but the controls were a bit off and it made the game frustrating.

Good message, horrible gameplay

I mean, seriously? Dude, not matter how much I love games with meaning, or some nice story that makes you think or something like that. I love art games, I've played every art game in newgrounds, but your's is a frustrating game. Sorry if I'm being rude, but a game with a message like yours needs to be easier, less frustrating, less hardcore.
Please, change the gameplay and I'll play it. I had to quit the game because I was way too angry with my infinite number of deaths to care about the message you're trying to say.

tl;dr if you want to send a love message, let it reach it's destination without pain.

Im finding a lot of nice artsy games on newgrounds.
But through the nice music and beautiful artwork lies a short, crappy game.
Im not saying these games are bad, its just I spend so much more time playing games that are addicting and fun, not games that have serious meaning,
accompanied by easy listening music.
The transformations were fun, but got frustrating by the jungle part
By the fire part it had transformed in to a shitty platformer
I dont want to sound like some action nut who doesn't think a game is good unless there is violence. Coma had a great story, and Walk was addicting.
This game falls short of both

Please read this if you want to improve.

The guy below is correct, but I can tell you the precise problem with the controls. In order to jump forward one has to push up first then forward which if you think how a human would go into a jump is not only akward but impossible, thus making the entire thing couter intuitive and more difficult then it should have been. The message at the end was very clouded. "Wake up" really? the guy is depressed about his wife, telling him to "wake up" if the worst thing you could say to a person in grief. innovation alone is what I likeed about the game, but that you were good at, and thus your 7 points. Don't mean to mean, but this was so close to an instant classic it hurts seeing it fall short, as many player did trying to play it with that akward jump.

The best of luck! I really hope I dont sound too harsh, its just so close to awesome it kills me
