One day, while you're testing a level for a developer friend of yours, you accidentally discover a hidden world inside the game. Alphaland is the story of exploring that world.

Arrow keys or WASD to move
Up/W/X/Space to jump

[Alphaland is a minimalistic platformer. It's pretty straightforward to play, so I'd rather not say too much and let you explore it yourselves. I hope you enjoy it!]

Truely amazing piece of work.

The whole time you're playing this you think it was only to be a game testing but really the game shows us much more than just testing a game. It shows us a world within the game but not something that could be explain. It is as if the idea was to make us realize how life works in so many levels that we may or may not understand. This is one amazing game i enjoy and made me very emotional because once a game now becomes something more than program it turns into life. Truely an amazing game I know I'm saying it alot but it's just something you really can't help but praise such an amazing and very well thought out game. I saw some comment on this page and apparently that person does not understand how complex and yet so amazing this game is!
Very nifty.

woah...

Very trippy, confusing yet understandable, simple yet seemingly existentially complex.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

really well planned out and loved the level design it reminded me of metroid 2 on gameboy when you can glitch the world and enter the undeveloped section of the game where basic gaming logic is thrown for a loop. i loved the constant concern the program faced while at the same time wanting help. all in all i have to give this a 10 amazing job i am rarely impressed but this is truly remarkable!

Um...

There was a frontpaged game a little while ago called Shitty Fucking Art Game. This reminded me strongly of it. Strange thing is, I enjoyed playing that game and I enjoyed playing this, more out of the curiosity of it than anything else. I don't know what else to say, really. I didn't find your "message" deep or anything, but I could appreciate the fact you were trying to say something.
