Play as Quail -- an inquisitive, intelligent, and rather regal beast -- who awakens in a mysterious and unknown land. In the distance he hears a voice echoing from deep within a beast-like cave, reaching out to him from the darkness, drawing him near. Unbowed by fear he presses forward, ready to complete any trial he may face.

Complete all 4 challenges to open the Portal within the Celestial Altar and let the Quail's mind be free.

What a pleasant surprise.
Beautiful aesthetics. Not too simple, not too complex, just easy enough to be a journey.
I enjoyed the ending, as well.
The writing was a bit rought, but it did not affect the overall feel of the game.

Well done!

Weird game. The meaning of the setting, goal and theme of this game are all a little confusing. I think that's how the creator intended it to be, but that didn't really rub off on me. The art seemed good, the animation was really slow and choppy. The gameplay kind of reminds me of Mario 64 with all the loading screens and bizzare movements across the level. The loading screen music is a little irritating.

Well, that was interesting! In character control, level design, and music, I am reminded of "Jill of the Jungle", a 1992 release from Epic Megagames. That game was also visually, really beautiful. I liked your sound effects, especially the vocals. The plot was quite ham-fisted, but never pretended not to be, so that worked too. I did expect it to be a human, not an actual quail. So you got me there. It could have been longer, and a bit more complicated.

How the hell this was frontpaged? It's mediocre at best

There is a bug where you can fall through the floor by going through walls, found it currently only in the fungal level going through the base of the tree and the boneyard walking into the left side of the ditch (right side has feather)
