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.

Powerful and touching

It's very rare to have a game affect me in such a way as this game did. I had to play all the way through just to see where it was going, and it was an emotional ride.

It's also rare to find an "art game" that has such a good gameplay mechanic behind it as well. You combined both aspects quite well.

Again, very powerful - the feelings this game triggered will no doubt stay with me all day.

Hats off to you, sir!

Beautiful.

This story has a much bigger meaning then you would expect. Each thing you take makes the difficulty harder and harder. The candle is what burnt the house down. The candle is the ''Easy way out'' choice. Clock is slightly harder, Feather harder yet. I really enjoyed this game, just due to it's interesting story. Nicely done my friend, please make more games like this.
