Alight is a platformer that mixes exploration and reflexes and more than a little story. Move with the arrow keys, fly with the space bar or up arrow. If you find yourself having trouble getting much altitude, trying pressing the space bar at a slower pace until you find the right rhythm. And remember that you can always drop down out of a flock of birds without using a flap of your wings with the down arrow key.

Every time you enter a door, your game is automatically saved, and you can replay a level at any point.

If you're amazed by the music like we were, you should check out Smiletron, who made the song -- he has a web site at and more songs at

Touching - But not entirely

I aborted a game, that made me almost cry, because the jumping parts displacing my focus from emotions to gameplay. I really love to fly around, look at all this beatiful textures, that, when you take a closer look, show you with how much love have been made. ;)
But where other games, To The Moon, Dear Esther etc. let you experience more emotion then gameplay, Alight trys to do both at the same time. Sorry, it didn't work for me that way. Maybe for everyone else, but I found it annoying to die 30 times until I could read another of these touching sentences.
I loved to play it, and will tell my friends about it, but I wont go through it. That's with me..

Wow... This game is so touching. No matter how many times I play it, it almost brings me to tears. It's a beautiful story, sad and touching. I have beaten the game with all the items, seem the endings, managed to reach level 8 also escape it. I was very satisfied with that ending. Thank you for creating such a work of art. My only complaint, though it be slight, is the difficulty on some of the levels. It seems hard for someone who doesn't play a lot of games like this, they miss out on something quite amazing.
