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 and more songs at

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

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.

I dreamed of playing this game... how cool is that?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great, no need to say anything more...

But, once you are on top of **SPOILER** your job's building and enter the strange/nightmarish thingy mode, **END OF SPOILER** on the very start, top right, there is a corner missing, and the fog is wrong ^^ look that up :)

Great plot, great music and good and challenging gameplay. Was not boring at all and I don't regret spending hours on this game :)
And I don't know about anyone else but I found Lizzie's house to be my most favourite place, just made me feel nostalgic for some reason..
