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!]

A wonderful, meditative little game about the development of a little game. Easy to pick up and control. Exploring actually feels like exploring, instead of being herded from corridor to corridor. There was a real sense of wonder as I discovered new areas and examined little details. The ending was sweet. This is the first time I've seen a game based on a coming-of-age--and it's the coming-of-age of a game. Mmmm, soft sci-fi.

The story behind the background music fits the game perfectly, but I don't think the music itself fits the game. I can hear the "floating in the womb" aspect, but the main feelings the song inspired in me were frightening oppression and desolation. The ending music fits better, I think.

If you're looking for a game where you zip from objective to objective marked on a GPS screen and simply accomplish quota-based goals, you might want to look elsewhere.

Wow, what a elevating idea to spice up the whole jump and run stuff! Awesome music, a kinda spirtual mindopener! Thanks JonasKyratzes!
