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

cool beans!!!

I love his game but its a little hard :)


I like it overall. But I'm curious to know. Is there an alternate ending where he decides not to wake up?

Very well-built

It has very good structure, very interesting, keeps me entertained, and isn't hardcore difficult or "spoon-feed" easy. The game overall is a 10/10, nothing needs to be improved on, in my opinion that is. It has the perfect mixture of adventure and entertainment to keep people amused for a good amount of hours/days.


Superb, I loved the style of the game, the music, and the gameplay. The story really wanted to make me finish the game, though I sort of knew what was going to happen. The good ending was... a little to obscure for my tastes. I really want to learn of the alternate ending, but It's not worth spending another half hour doing the game again... can't find any video's either D:
Anyway... just awesome overall.

Our world holds so many truths...

Looking at the different hazes of smoke whether you cleared it with the candle, feather or clock, proved to be something of a interest playing through. What I can tell everyone is...


The only way to level 8 is to beat time (clock) with all the levels, and then rather than take the door the smoke points to, to dive into the dark. From there it's just a matter of heading left and up, only going right to speak to your mother's ghost and immediately taking the left path. Taking the path to the right will lead to your death.

I like the take the game played through with each item but I must stress one point. If you ever make a game like this again, explain WHY some things will kill you. I can understand the smoke (I am not going to spoil this folks, check it yourself!) but the ravens were never explained.
