One day, while you're testing a level for a developer friend of yours, you accidentally discover a hidden world inside the game. Alphaland is the story of exploring that world.

Arrow keys or WASD to move
Up/W/X/Space to jump

[Alphaland is a minimalistic platformer. It's pretty straightforward to play, so I'd rather not say too much and let you explore it yourselves. I hope you enjoy it!]

How do I put this...

While playing this "game" I thought to myself that what I was doing was pointless.
But I felt something... I'm not sure what it was but I know it was good.

At first the game felt a little sub par and somewhat boring, I will admit at times I felt like stopping and going back to playing something that I thought was worth my time but I am somewhat glad that I stuck it to the end. However, While the creativity of this game is quite admirable the story felt VERY blank, incoherent and confusing, I felt as there was no point to the plot unfolding before me and the small text blurbs "I am afraid" and "what am I", things such as these are quite cliché for a game that I suppose is an "art style" game (seen through themes such as self awareness and what seemed to be the belief of a higher power, a god if you will). The simple mechanics in this game get the job done but really do nothing special and the puzzles were fairly boring and somewhat rudimentary.

However there is something special about this game.

I'm not sure if you will agree with me but what you have started has NOT been finished. I feel as though you have just scratched the surface of this idea and you should continue what you have begun. I know this seems a little pushy but I want to learn more about this alpha world and I'm sure that the increase of texture styles while journeying through this game means that there should be more to come.

I don't know about you but I want to know more about this world and I want to see it develop to it's fullest potential. I hope that your mind can show this to me...

Wow one of the most creative things I've ever seen

When I was reading the letter and especially reading the things about the graphics I was like, "Oh so you just made an excuse to upload a crappy game..." and then when I couldn't collect the powerup I got it.

P.s. superb choice of the music it definatly addes a lot to the adventure.
