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

Unique game

I'm glad that art like this is still made by amazing people.

Very good game

This is the first time i had a challenge plying art games usually they aren't that challenging but this game is different in all the right ways.

Touching, worldess to describe this game's wonders

Very touching game, this reminds me of that one game, oh, by 2darray, Company of Myself, that's it. With the sad story accompanying in a fairly simple game.
So touching, and some of the levels were a little complicated. I had to get to the end for the story.

Simply Amazing.

The story really got me. The more I learned the more I felt bad for this guy.
The ending confused me a bit...I'm definitely going to playthrough this again.

Great game, great story, great music... How did this game only get the daily FOURTH place...? It deserves first (or better if that's possible...)


I loved the story so much; it left a certain chilling sensation when I finished the game. Very well done!
