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

Beautiful

Hey I made an account just to tell you that I think this is probably the most well spent time I've ever used on Newgrounds. You've truly created something beautiful and should be very proud of what you've done; this is art.

I doubt I'll be moved enough again to write another review on this site, so goodbye, and thank you.

Cannot be described with words.

This game speaks to me. I have reason to belive that this game is about the creators life. It has an odd type of INSEPTION which makes you want to play more.

Touching.

Touching isn't usually how I describe a game, but touching was definitely the case here.

Loved the story (who couldn't?). Made me reach that point where you're not crying, but it feels like there's something stuck in your throat. Made me think about my parents and how they're getting older.

The music fit with the game perfectly, and I loved the slow pace. I did find the secret stage, but it's kind of an obscure way to get there. I felt like some of the story went over my head, but for the most part what was going on was clear.

There really aren't words to describe this game other than "thank you."
