Hey cool front page thanks!

Turn those speakers up!

Hey I made this a while ago for the public domain jam on itch.io. The idea is that you take a story in the public domain and retell it as a game, and you also had to include paper in some way. The source code is in the public domain, too, but it's like complete garbage because I'm bad at programming. And I'm not saying that because I'm kind of okay/self-conscious – I really mean it.

So I made the game and I think I got 5th place which is pretty cool. I was gonna upload it to NG right away, but I got all caught up in some other shit and I dunno here it is now.

There's no goals or score or anything, which means it a gay art game and it sucks. That's a joke sorry mom sorry I said gay. There aren't any hidden metaphors or morals or unintelligible garbage so shut up and enjoy it IT'S JUST SUPPOSED TO BE "NEAT"

Screw you dad I'm going to space! The only reason people think this game is pretentious is because they have low attention spans and can't understand the beauty of it. Also haha stupid birds.

SPOILER
I like the way the birds fly away when you go too high, and you think "Should I go back down and catch some more birds?" and then you think "Nah, I want to see what else I can find if I keep going up" and you KNOW you're most likely going to burn but you still do it because you want to SEE it yourself. It kinda made me feel like Icarus himself. I don't know if that's what you were planning when you desinged the game. Probably yes, and you lied about the "no hidden metaphors" part. Well, it's not actually "hidden", and it isn't an actual metaphor either, but it does have a meaning, which seems to be a very unusual thing for a flashgame lately. Plus, I love Greek mythology.
In short, I was impressed. Very nice game, short and meaningful. 5 minutes well spent.
Thank you :)

"Self propelling paper plane flying out of stratosphere and still manages to catch itself on fire, while clearly not carrying any kind of oxidizer on him" - bullshit aside, the game is really enjoyable.
5* for the feeling, music, and epic looking star sky.

I liked it and just when i started thinking "oh yeah, good but it needs a sound" , then the sound started, and completed all.
And it's not pretentious!
