Alight is a platformer that mixes exploration and reflexes and more than a little story. Move with the arrow keys, fly with the space bar or up arrow. If you find yourself having trouble getting much altitude, trying pressing the space bar at a slower pace until you find the right rhythm. And remember that you can always drop down out of a flock of birds without using a flap of your wings with the down arrow key.

Every time you enter a door, your game is automatically saved, and you can replay a level at any point.

If you're amazed by the music like we were, you should check out Smiletron, who made the song -- he has a web site at smiletron.org and more songs at 8bc.org/members/SMILETRON

i found this game 10? years ago scrolling randomly through this site and i still think about it often. this has had more of an emotional impact on me than any other game i've played i think

how to run it...

Your game "where we remain" Is like, one of my favorite games of ALL TIME. It draws you in so well. The storytelling is so immersive. I was hooked, so hooked. Good job and stuff on that one. That was a good game.

This art game has the perfect mixture between storytelling, musical/graphical art and video game challenging play. I don't think there is anything negative that can be said about this game. I can't find anything to say other than it is close to perfection.

Maybe it can be unforgiving and/or frustrating to casual (or just plain bad) players trying to achieve the secret ending. People may think it should be easier. I prefer a thousand times the way it is, though.

An epilogue would be nice, too. Not entirely necessary, but I figure after so many retries for the clock challenges, people may forget some parts of the plot due to incredible concentration required during dark parts.

Speaking of: People downvoting the game saying something like "return trips are useless" simply can't comprehend what this is about - or are illiterate.

Anyway - very well done.

This reminds me of the Owl City song "Fireflies".
