"Can a bigger falling star make a bigger wish come true?"

This small 'game poem' will let you find out. If you are not happy with the ending, go ahead and wish again. You might get surprised :).

'The Wish' is the result of a short game jam in which we have tried to present the media 'game' in a more distinctive and esthetic way.

Good luck!

Instructions
Use your mouse to collect as many stars as possible, while avoiding the red and evil clouds.

UPDATE:
Thank you all for your great feedback to this small and special project of us!
For all of you who interested in the music:
It was written & performed by 'Jan Maru' Napitupulu during the jam and especially for this game. Right now there is no official download version for it, because it will be part of his first album, which he is planning to produce as a "Kickstarter" project.
If you like to support 'his wish' :) or just want to stay informed about the progress, send a mail to thewish@beardshaker.com or join us on Facebook www.facebook.com/Beardsha kerGames .

BeardshakerGames responds:

We are happy to hear that :). Yeah, the song really is a haunting melody, isn't it? The title of the song is 'Falling' and is made by our 'part-time-musician' Jan. In the updated author comments you can find more information about it.

Thank you! :) Michael did an outstanding job to catch this special and sentimal mood in his illustrations for this game.

A beautiful game without the expected clutter. No highscores, or score at all for that matter. No dialogue, no backstory and no cutscenes. Deceptively simple text tells you to click for a wish, and suddenly you become that wish, or a guide to that wish as it travels across the sky. I felt a strange mix of emotions I rarely feel from movies and games.

I felt a sad desperation, as if every option before wishing had already been exhausted.
I felt confused. As the description asks, can a bigger falling star make a wish more likely to come true? How can a wish help?
I felt a motivation. Is this guiding of a wish symbolic for making your dreams into reality? I like this idea.

Great art, amazing music. The smallest and strongest story I've seen in a while.
