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.


Music was beautiful & melancolic, just like the game. The end is very true and could help us in life. The world lacks of games like that because not only that makes us think, but with more power than in a movie or a book because we control it. Liked it.

The story, music and environment made me feel like i was the illusionist, i felt so sad, i remembered who is the girl i love, and then though she was dead, this game proved me that not everygame is focused on destroy and kill, and that's why i like art games very much.

This story moved me in ways in which that I cannot explain through words, but I know my tears explain enough. This was beautiful, inspiring, yet heartbreaking all in one shared moment. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this was an absolutely incredible game. Your form of creativity is wonderful, keep up the good work!

the first levels are entretaining and all the whole story is very emotive, the music fits perfect and so the artwork, the only "but" I have to add is that you can´t look to the whole text while you´re jumping or running from a fox, also, in the last level, is a little bit frustrating to repeat all again ´cause of a self-demon, taking apart all of that is a really good game!
