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 smiletron.org and more songs at 8bc.org/members/SMILETRON

Deep

This is pretty much the deepest NG game ever made. I love it and always will respect the person who knows how to tell a quality story through games.

Great storyline

But as same as the other reviewers, it's more story and less a game... I find the challenges very hard for doing, but that's fine- a game should be challenging.
Ooh, and I was really full of pity when you said: "I thought that my mother was just an invention and not a real person, and maybe someday when I will come back home she will dissappear..." not exact, but you thrilled me and triggered me to see the continue of the story. I hope that's not bask on a true story!

simply beautiful

this was not a game... It was a story that was enjoyable to play through the focus was not the game but the storyline and for doing such a thing I salute you

Hmmm

How to put this, not to BL4M on you or anything but... I have to agree with zorex (In someways) I do think it was a little dragged out and could have been a little more fast paced than it was, but that's really the only problem. In my eyes a solid 8. I loved the story, but I never finished it because I accidentally clicked on a link that lead me away. Is there someway I could get a dialogue? I'd love to see the rest of this.
