The First Winter Rain

A deeply emotional take on the infinite runner genre. Ride your motorcycle through the rainy night, dodging cars and accelerating to reach the morning, and perhaps, hope.
This game is primarily intended to be a work of art. I hope it makes you think or feel.

its feels very meditative, and you can be playing it and lose focus and get lost in your thoughts. gameplay wise, if hitting the cars actually led to consequences in this game I never would have gotten through it.

I like this game alot

I loved it. It, (for me) was emotionally soothing. I recommend this game to anyone.

I always liked the feeling of a rush, that is, just walking, running, somewhere, anywhere, no real place that you're really going, the destination itself is unnecessary and is not important. It's the journey being taken, the ride itself, that matters most.

The game I found to be enjoyable, and it was cool to see that going through the speed ups gave you back gas(?) so you could keep riding. Which was good because there was no way I could've finished it without the speed ups, hahaha!

The music used was a good choice, and it went well with the seemingly aimless motorcycle ride in a storm, it had this sad reflective feel to it, almost desperate, bleak yet it was not without some hope. The song used is in a loop, and the final notes before it repeats all over again hold that uncertainty that is present in life itself.

Simple, yet I found it to be riveting. It'd be a nice contribution to the Newgrounds art games' portal. Well done.

By the way, where can I find the song? Seriously, it's beautiful even by itself!
