Literally nothing I can say to improve, started simple and rapidly became more complex, and the story was beautiful! Definite 5/5

Love the art! The music which you've chosen is incredibly atmospheric, and it can make the game pretty scary at times, but the underlying story is brilliant! Sound quality was really good, and spoken parts were easily audible.

The level layouts were unusual, but worked well, it gave the game a sort of dreamlike quality, really surreal.

Great job!

Wow this game is incredible. Best storytelling I can remember seeing in a Flash game and it manages to have good game play at the same time. Awesome sound/music. This will definitely be a candidate for a 2012 tank award - it's neat that I got to be one of the first to play it.

Atmosphere and everything is just perfect. 10/10, 5/5, A+, great job, etc.

This game sent chills up my spine. I didn't expect it. All of the intense, darker parts were being watered down and seemed kid-friendly.

Thank you for an absolutely marvelous game!

We need a game engine to support layers of 2D tiles or surface cube maps :)

First off, the game-play was awesome and original. The cube-shaped platform was brilliant. A bit of story is always nice in a puzzle game as it seems to give motivation. With each puzzle solved you gain the gratification of receiving another line of story. The art was also brilliant! I am totally geeking out over this game!

Great atmosphere! Definitively not a game to play at 3 a.m. The narration was spectacular, although the story in itself was going fort and backwards a lot of the time, but I guess that's expected when you make a cryptic game like this. Good Work!

This game is so fucking difficult at times. But then again... walkthrough... upper left...
The game itself is... lengthy. If it had less intricate, shorter puzzles I would have played the whole thing. But no. I used the "Skip this level" option (thanks for putting that up!)
The graphics and art are sublime.
Story line is great but the ending is a bit unclear. I can only draw conclusions as to what happened.
The macabre music, I can handle. On endless loop? Hell no. I found myself muting my computer and only unmuting it when the sister's sexy ;) voice came on (the voice actor wins.)
Creepy ambiance but with your sister there it sorts of mellows things out... not a rated "R" sort of gameplay with no gore. Yay, a creepy kid's game with no bloody scenes has finally been found!
What suprised me the most was your deaths. A white screen. Whaat?! I'll be honest and come clean. The first time I died I actually panicked. *gasp*"The dead thing touched me! Oh noes! oh. i restarted. oh."
The atmosphere, music, dead things' laugh contributed to an awesome death. I don't know how to really describe it but these factors just led up to an awesome death.
The controls were simple but were kinda sluggish if you played on a slow computer.
This game is a great paragon on how to combine a dark story, creepy art, macabre music, a sexy voice actor/narrator, and whatever I forgot into a masterpiece of a game.
Now let me stop this random rant that isn't composed very well. Here, 4.5 stars. Have fun in making the rest of your games!

Well, I can certainly see how this became so popular! What I really liked about this was that it gave off such a great sense of wonder. It makes you think about these crazy dream worlds where the story takes place. I have little idea what's even supposed to be real and what isn't. It's just a wonderful world where you go everywhere and explore everything. This is becoming fairly popular on the rest of the Internet too!

It seems like I can recall a few movies that did something like this. Only those movies were pretty bad, while this is really cool. I appreciate how the character lives in this strange block world. It's great to know there are few limitations. The music is fantastic as well. It's amazing to believe that this is your first submission here, dude!

Hey I cant get past the intro because I cant make him stop moving or turn around and go left, so I just keep falling in the spike trap in the second part of the intro. Couldn't really tell if this was a part of the game or not from looking at the videos. Also, could someone put up a vid of the epilogue? Really wanna see the ending.

Interesting game, I love the semi-creapy atmosphere. The only thing I don't get is the ending, is there a point for completing all the levels? because I didn't see a difference between before I fully completed the game and after...

A pretty good game. Puzzling gameplay (quite similar to a game I played before called "Cardboard Box Assembler") and quite a touching background story (which... well, didn't have much to do with the gameplay, but hey, it's just a puzzle/platformer flash game after all).

I feel quite sad for the poor kid...

The story was crafted beautifully both in a visual and expressive way in which compelled me even more each time I go through another level.
It is unique in its own right and the voice acting was truly remarkable.
The theme and atmosphere were astounding.
This deserves to get more than 5 and it never bored me half-way like most games here in NG.

I found the story fascinating and It had a nice eerie feeling throughout the whole game. The game-play was decent, however the storyline was the sole reason I continued to play.

The levels were awesome, but I feel like there could have been more. Altogether. I'd give this 4 stars.

This is a very interesting platformer. The graphics have a nice cartoony feel to them. The music, while I would liked to hear a bit more variation sets a a appropriate mood and is overall quite good. And the storyline is interesting. The only thing I can nitpick is that the character moves a bit too slowly, but You`re playing as a little, defenseless boy so I can see why. Overall an excellent flash game.

First platformer I've EVER played to completion. The storyline was fantastic and carefully crafted (loved the drawings) the physics were very interesting and whilst it was challenging, it was never frustrating (that is my usual issue with platformers, resulting in me turning the game off). Loved the music, I agree that sometimes it would be nice for the character to move faster but his speed helps to make precision jumps easier. Overall a really well made game, you should be proud!

I'm only on the first level and I have to write this review, the graphic style, music, and presentation on story just move together so well. The concept works out wonderfully for what I assume is some kind of platformer and while I can't speak for everyone, the mood appeals to me greatly.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was a good game in terms of playability but the ending made no sense and didn't explain much.

[story spoiler]

The ending didn't answer any questions or resolve the story, it just says the boy was mute and having nightmares since his sister died. It doesn't explain why his sister is apparently in hell, it doesn't explain what she did that made her a bad person. At one point the sister says "oh my god it's been you all along" which just makes no sense. What was him all along? Is she saying it's all just a made up dream in the boy's imagination? But if that were true, how did the sister talk about memories she had repressed and never told the brother until then?

And you never actually find the sister, you just jump into some lava at the end.

Terrible story, but good gameplay so 3.5/5.

Gave it a 5v5 anyways, but level 3-3 was badly designed. It was hard to tell what path I should take to get where I needed to go and there were quite a few spots that would "force" you to mess up the puzzle and back track to reset it.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I love the game, the 3d cube effect was interesting (though hellishly annoying at times). But a few extra words at the end would have made a big difference in story resolution.

(spoilers)

So, we find out at the end (well, it's suggested at least) that the reason she can't move on is because he didn't want her to go. Okay... she apologizes for her mean behavior, for not saying goodbye, etc. He jumps into lava. He wakes up on her grave, holding her necklace.

So... what happened? Was that all a nightmare for him? Did her apology allow him to let her go, now she's free? How the (beep) did he get to her grave? Having her say, after the epilogue, something along the lines of "I guess all you wanted was that goodbye... there you have it. Thank you for letting me go." or something along those lines would at least give some sort of resolution. But... I only finished the game so I could see then end. And it was a little too open-ended for my taste. *growl* Minus a point on an otherwise 5-star game.

Last note... about the person who this was supposedly stolen from. If that had actually happened, they'd probably take it up with the site managers, not leave it on a comment section. Just a thought.

A great game, it really doesnt let you stop playing. The only reason i did stoped was because i got "stuck" at a place, walls were to high and you cant get out of there. Just so anyone can know its lvl 4-3 at the door room, the door was on the down left corner and i ntered through the right side of the screen with the switch turned off. Stuck!
