Humanity has had its time, and that time has drawn to a close. It is now time for humanity to be catalogued.

[UPDATE] A number of people have commented on a bug when locating the last Piece of Eternity. I've looked into this, and on top of fixing the bug, have moved the piece altogether. You should now be able to discover all of them.
I've also modified vine-climbing a bit, to make it slightly more accommodating.

This is an interactive story. It's gameplay-light, and is meant to give you a bit of mental fodder. Inspired by David Bowie's conceptual album and song, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars".

Soundtrack is available in the Audio Portal, links on the sidebar.

Enjoy <3

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This game was a depressing but great game.... I did however find a glitch...... a funny one though. I was climbing to get the flower when all of the sudden i was glitched into the tree. I found it amusing because i kept jumping but every time i jumped it would do the animation of the jump for about i would say be a split second then back to the standing animation... i spent about 10 minutes with my friends laughing about how funny it looked. Despite the graphics and glitched vines. This review is a 4.5. Great game :D

Really good and addicting im picky on games but this one was a must play


Rated 4 / 5 stars

the game is good but when I jump in movement is a little hard


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I liked it, although it was a bit too easy. The only hard part was climbing the vines. It should've had some form of pressure aspect, like a time limit or some other way to die.

The concept/storyline was great though, I wish you would've developed it a little deeper.

The dialog is a bit off sometimes. Like at the love course, the protagonist's first sentence is a bit random.

And to the dude who said Nirvana made "The man who sold the world": that's just a cover of the Bowie-song.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

A good art game with some unfortunate flaws. The story and soundtrack were compelling enough to make me want to play the game to the end. The minimalist graphics and simple gameplay, however, make a disappointing combination. The 'meat' of the game (that is to say, the story) is separated by fairly large platforming sections that don't have much to offer; they're basically a handful of simple platforms leading to more simple platforms eventually leading to the next bit of meat. It just feels like I'm being put through busy work as I meander my way through the repetitive stages. I would certainly recommend adding some extra elements (such as decoration, puzzles or obstacles) to keep things fresh.
