Once upon a time there was a great magical performer who entertained crowds with his tricks and illusions.

But when the one he loved died, he stopped performing and lost the will to live...

...until one night he had a dream...

NOTICE: Anyone is free to make videos of my games. Sharing video game experiences with others is really nice. It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

It had potential.

I agree that a game needs a good story / message to be good but if that good story is accompanied by bad controls and frustrating game play it will be ruined. The controls where sticky and it was hard to tell where platforms began and ended making deaths common. Because of that dieing in this game couldn't be more frustrating. Every time i died the camera would slowly pan back to the beginning of the level and then make me reappear on the screen. In the end i was to frustrated with the game to care for the message. If you had worked on this a bit harder you would have gotten a higher score.

Please excuse any grammar mistakes that i am sure that i have made.

*sniffle*

so beautiful you don't see games like this any more people are more interested in horror or action or how a game looks, no one bothers to make how a game... feels, a life lesson that will help you walk the path of life to make sure you find the end of the cliff and by then you are ready to jump... no one makes games like this ever that why these games are too beautiful to call "games" where people want to be entertained not taught, i just wish games were like these if they were, the world would be a better place where no one has lost track of what life "is" not "about" 10/10 5/5

Great game.

It's a great game and has a good story, but I think there should be more levels and more difficult. Should also have a greater variety of animals to the abilities of each animal were better exploited. I liked the atmosphere of history.The music and the faint glow gives to the game the aspect of a dream. The calmness with which the game develops is also interesting to think that you should use this to make players think more to solve problems.

Great game!

This is easily the most innovative game I have played in a very long time. I just loved how awesome the animation was and how it really deviates from anything that you (SeethingSwarm) have ever done before! I think my favorite animal to turn into would be the monkey. I just love how that little creature can jump so amazingly high. I love the overall surrealism and it reminds me of "Alice In Wonderland" probably because of the white rabbits. The designs are just gorgeous to look at.
