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

Good, meaningful, but could have been better.

I actually didnt finish the game, I got stuck in an airstream and couldn't move out,
But a good game; a touching story, and 8-bit graphics. All you need for a good game.
It felt too slow though, the jump was just too limited, the story was far too intriguing to go that slow with it. Keep up the good work,

Some advice

Game is great... I love meaningful games..

My advice is to not play this when you have just broken up with someone -.- the music is too good

It's a fun game.

Nothing to really say here.

It's fun and challenging at times.

For the Author!

Welp, the game itself really doesn't offer anything new or striking BUT

This is the result of scientific study: Dreams about flying are always sex dreams.

Gameplay was annoying in places

Was the main character supposed to be such an unlikeable bastard?

So when he's talking on the phone to his mum he's too self-obsessed to give her a chance to tell him he's dying? And when he does find out, he feels "Oh God, this is so hard for ME" and basically shuts her out of his life so he doesn't have to watch her die? He's not there to comfort or help her in the slightest bit.
And when she does die, he's like "Oh, ok" and throws himself into his studies, even taking his project with him to her funeral.
And when his life doesn't turn out to be the amazing success he wanted it to be, he decides to kill himself by burning his mother's old house down?
