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 interesting!

Probably the least enjoyable thing about this was how hard it was to get a single medal. Oh well, this certainly had great graphics and detail to spare. The coolest thing was learning how to limit yourself with the wings you had. You had to stop yourself from becoming arrogant, or else you would run out of power. The best thing to do is to really look everywhere to see your environment. You would be surprised at how useful that Shift key can be.

It was weird how the perspective and sizes seemed to change. This kind of touched me on a spiritual level. You would never think those crows would be strong enough to kill you. Everything just moves in such a smooth manner and it makes you wonder what is supposed to be a dream and what is real in this game. The darkness makes a good nightmare.

It's nice but....

There's something about this game that is solid in concept but doesn't hold my attention for so long. I mean it's beautiful, the music is great (though is it me or it only has one track?) , the graphics are well animated and the writing is pretty nice.

But...It failed to hold my attention at all because of the repetitiveness. It became dull and boring fast because nothing really changes. I lasted until the Observatory but by then, I was already feeling how it's just very repetitive. I don't know if it's the controls or just me but I finally called it quits even thought I wanted to know more.

Overall, it's a pretty nice game, please don't give up just yet :D

Beautiful

Thats all I can think of. This game is just simply beautiful. Thats all that I can really think of. This game really pulled at my heart strings man. I'm surprised that some one could make a game so interactive with the storyline and so deep in the plot. The game is simply beautiful in all aspects of the word. THANK YOU for making something so enjoyable for me to play.

wow

The plot in this game is truly beautiful. Ive never seen a game with a story this deep; I've hardly ever seen a film with a story this deep. I'm assuming theres a way to beat this game, I havent found it yet, but I'm gonna try all night to finish it. I've gotten seriously in deep with this game and I'm hanging with it to the end.
My only problem might be the controls, theyre a bit too difficult to master. But the story makes up for it a thousand times over, for sure.
