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

Is this all there is?

I found level 8 but I feel like there should be something more to it. Maybe if I found all the motherly figures. Is there a way to know wish path leads to her?

Spoiler for level 8 : I don't know if it is necessary but I did all the alarms. At the end, I didn't take the big door. A message "Maybe there is a better way" appeared at the bottom. I jumped to the bottom and there was level 8.

Simply Amazing

While the gameplay may sometimes be too challenging and actually upsetting the mood, the story and dialogue was absolutely beautiful. If one opens themselves to the story, they realize the sadness of what life brings, the importance of family, and the dangers of depression. I only hope the typical ADHD newgrounder will be able to appreciate it.

The visuals providing an abstract representation of the narrative was only the icing on the cake.

Very Touching

I've lost a loved one to cancer, and as the story progressed I found it touched me a lot more deeply than I was expecting. Beautifully melancholy. I struck down a single point only because I had difficulty navigating some levels, not so much due to difficulty but because it was sometimes not completely clear where I needed to go. Still, consider it a testament to the story that I was willing to keep at it until I came to the end. You have moved me, sir.
