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

Protagonist deserves it

dude forgets to put out a candle, house catches fire while he is asleep and he wakes up from his dream moments before he succumbs to the smoke and flames.

No alternate endings, no just different bonuses and apparently if you get all the clocks something else pops up but don't expect it to be an achievement reward.

Beautiful, just purely beautiful

I don't understand how uncultured people can't realize that this is not an art game but a work of art, a story, and an absolute masterpiece in my opinion. The story had me addicted from start to finish without me even noticing, the music was perfectly trancy, the levels, didn't get repetitive, they just got different, the concept for every level was different, I don't think I'll see a game quite this amazing for a long time. I will probably never find another game that has this great of a storyline, you my friend are a genius.

Amazing is not good enough to describe it.

Ok, so, first of all: Excuse me if I make a mispelling of some sort its just that english isnt my born-language.

A few months ago I read this opinion that said that Videogames couldnt be considered an "Art" and (even if I was sure that was a lie) this game, this flash game with no High-Definition graphics couldnt have proved it more wrong.

The Story is Great, after playing for some minutes and getting deeper into the Story i somehow identified with the character like if I was Him.
Now, the Music. I never really got tired of it since it was PERFECT for this game.

The gameplay is really good, even if after you grabbed an object and that "darkness" appeared parts where sometimes kind of repetitive they were totally worth it.

This game is a 10/10 Even if the gameplay could have been better I really cant think of a better way.

Im Adding you to my Favorites And this game aswell.

Keep making this great games and prove all of us that Games CAN BE AN ART.
