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

love the multiple endings

although i dont get why he had to set his house on fire to design this dream wanting to say goodbye to his mother, but then say it is time for him to wake up. i would have thought the ending where he did not want to wake up would be more suited for wanting to say goodbye to his mother.

This was wonderful and the story was thrilling also, it's probably why I wanted to finish the game so much and I love a game with a good story, thank you for that :)


And I thought he lived through the fire... Didn't he live through the fire?!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

trying to find a tutorial really bad

link in the description doesnt work and there doesnt seem to be a walkthrough. I got up to the part where the smoke things are saying something like "my mom left her house to me in the will but i could never go back there. She is dead and i shouldnt live in the past. I think thats what she wouldve told me. i find myself trying to talk to my mother a lot. But maybe thats not any stranger then talking to myself." >> not sure what to do from here but im gunna keep trying to find ways to get through these levels


Rated 5 / 5 stars


man this game was just like woahhh

i could literally feel your (or the characters if its not actually your dream) depression by just playing this game, man did you do a good job.

- it was simple, but in a nice way
- the story was really captavating
- the controls were easy to use (not all over the keyboard)
