11/8/11 Still working on the medals guys, hang in there. Also tried some more optimizing to fix the slippery/sticky controls issue some of you have. (also, if you have a FB tab up, try closing that)

**CONTROLS** LEFT/RIGHT walk left/right UP = Jump DOWN = Raise shield (while standing)/Use Weapon(later in game,while standing)

Oyeatia, creator and god of man surrenders his deity, descending to the green earth in search of a lost love. Gyossait sleeps in the warm black heart of the dying planet, her dreams seep into the weakening minds of man. The end begins.

Update History:

11/5/11 Patched vanishing keys, walking off map, alternative ending, Medals implemented but pending.

I want more stories like this one in games!

(Heads up to readers: minor spoilers and massive text)

I was so impressed by this game that I actually downloaded Stencyl just to check it out!

[Basics]
I found it structurally to be a very basic platform game with very easy levels to navigate through, and the basic instructions is explained at the very beginning of the game in the background through a graphical guidance.

[Story & Art]
The story unfolded jaggedly but with the combination of text, visuals and game play it conveyed with some success to me as a player. I did figure out most of the story on my first playthrough, but it was a bit confusing regarding the demigod Uzaza but after replaying the game and reading the author's explanation for the story, the last pieces of the puzzle were finally put into their proper places and I really loved the story!

The whole theme and the story together was some really great work and the dark theme is just brilliant! To me, it's like a Giger and Lovecraft crossover making up an awesome surreal mix! I don't know what inspired you but whatever it was I'd heartily recommend you to keep at it! The intro was really something too, It really captivated me and set the atmosphere right there! A beheaded god falling down to a planet: Fantastic idea!

Regarding the in-level story text it is an ambiguous choise as the god's alien language blinking into english makes it hard to understand sometimes without spending time looking at it but then I think also this is an interesting way to use storytelling so enjoyed it even if I was a bit unsure about Uzaza place in the picture.

[Music & Sound]
Loved it! Short tracks but great choice and great sound effects! The cutscene's short looping music with the female crying of pain sound really put the atmosphere of the game into an new level, although I thought the male god looked fat. I want the soundtrack, by the way.

[Mechanisms]
Seems to work properly but the controls could've been tweaked some more and the character's response is a bit slow but it wasn't a hassle to play with just a tiny bit annoying at first.

[Level Design]
The level design is quite basic, like a random platform situation for experimentation but there are parts of the game that I liked and seemed that you spent some time with it but the platforming could've been expanded upon and designed a little better, instead of putting a key there, push this switch over here and create some platforms here and there, jump, wait, jump etc. That said, some parts I liked and some were a bit too basic.

[Game Design]
Generally I enjoyed your design and I enjoyed the fantastic pixel-art but I would recommend you to put some more thought into the level design. I liked the story and that the main character gets to be reborn every time he dies and through a tree nontheless! Really some awesome thinking there! The whole concept and the story is awesome but the execution isn't as good as it could've been and the game is a bit too short but it is still a good story-game that I played entirely through when it got through the NG portal, before You even added meta-gaming to it. Also, I think the whole Uzaza thing could've been either skipped or expanded upon as it seems it wasn't thoroughly thought through.

[Summary]
I loved it! I recommend it to players who enjoy platform games with dark otherworldly themes with a good story to boot but requires a few playthroughs to understand completely. I really enjoyed the game! I hope to see more from You, Amon26!

Sorry but personally...

Sorry, but I don't personally like this game, it's a bit repetitive, the dialogue is kind of lame, the graphics are a bit dull, and the game is a bit worse than a classical plat former is supposed to be. Sorry, im sure many people love it and its not that bad, but I don't like it.

Third day in a row of Gyossait! :D

I find the story this game has to tell to be very heartbreaking, and the music only adds to the atmosphere, particularly at the credits scene (Even more so for the "happy" version of the ending. For those who are lost about the story, go to Amon26 profile. It will be right there to help piece it together for you. Please Amon26 make more masterpieces such as this, with equal thought, effort, care and love as this.

Could have been amazing, but dont ignore it!

Very atmospheric game with some superb music, soundscapes and sound effects that add to the dark colour scheme and the general feeling of suspense this game tries to build. Its not a difficult game, but its not a walk in the park either and I'm sure you will have numerous restarts to complete it.

There is a brilliant alternate defense/attack type of game play that is as original as it is unexpected. Well thought out and entertaining without being overly horrific. The sort of storyline you would find in most Anime type products, but it all comes together to make rather a beautiful game, albeit very repetetive and nonsensical at the end.

Play it and enjoy it for what it is!

Heads up there is no win or lose in this game

Look deeper into the game its not a win or lose game its a suspenseful game. Suspense is like a mystery something that's needs to be solved. That requires thinking a high level IQ as BeteIgeuse stated. The dumb asses won't get the brillance of this magnificent game. Dumb fucks won't understand the complex life of reality thats why they don't understand. This awesome game will be remembered for ever. Suspense is what I live for!
