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

Well I argee. the storyline was kind of predictable, but it's still a good story, and it was well made. I think it deserves a 8, but since I LOVE this game, I give it a 10.

Great!

I really enjoyed it, I beat it 2 times even, heh. I love how the game has to do with dreams, a subject I adore. I would really want to see a sequel, with maybe a larger moveset and actual encounters with dream figures...
There's a book called "Lucid Dreaming" By Robert Waggoner.
Look it up, if you read it, and decide to make a sequel, it might help you a lot.
So again, great game :)

meh.

Honestly, there are several games out there that are just like this one. I did not find myself moved by the lacking and predictable storyline. I think very little effort was put into this game and had the controls been worked on a bit more and had some imagery rather than just text bubbles been included, this could have been much better. It was pretty much just a sob story and a pixely game shoved together. Sorry, but I think "Alight" is only deserving of a 5/10.

that really hit home

... about not calling my parents for weeks when I was in college... that really struck a chord with me.
