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

Very deep and immersive

Alight (In Dreams) is a true masterpiece in gaming. Not only does it provide traditional and challenging platform gameplay with the addition of three different choices per level that affect the difficulty, but as a work of art it goes far beyond most other games I've played in my life. A simple but very deep story that sucked me in paired with very well thought poetic phrases, as well as the great fitting music, is what kept me glued to the screen playing this game for hours trying to achieve every possible outcome. I think I hadn't cried in years, but congratulations, Chris and Joel - this did the trick. Being able to translate a raw emotion into any kind of art is a very complex task, but you guys achieved it flawlessly, so here's a well-deserved 10 for you, although I only regret not being able to rate this higher. Keep up the good work!
