For now the game is only a prototype. It was made for the 8Bits to infinity: Puzzle Jam and we wanted to create something really special. You can play a total of 10 levels made during the jam. So the level are not really well designed. Our goals for the next update is to fix the majorities of the bugs and get new levels in the game. There are a lot of new ideas that we are really excited to work on. So stay tuned for new stuff coming soon !

so much fun!


After playing your game give the gameplay of being challenging, but unique. It reminds me of Yoshi island for the Super NES for mostly the art style. My main feedback is the light which is challenging when moving the mouse for the light to shine on the key, platform or door while moving the character to navigate the level with the keyboard. Maybe have the light follow you when jump on the spot light that setup a timer of 15 seconds while continue having the scene switch from light to dark to find and locate the platform, door and key. If the timer is up is when the spot light revert back to the original place as you have to jump in the spotlight to start the level over again until it's complete.

Thank you a lot (: Your support is very appreciated!

No Problem.


Very interesting concept. I liked the music too. There are some issues with level design (i didnt notice the role of totems until the last level) but still amazing for a jam game.

thank you for the awesome showcase! Its quite entertaining to see you go through our levels!

Hey no problem! Thanks for entering the jam :)


Awesome concept and good execution! The graphics fit the game well and the game itself fit the theme quite well too

The puzzles did feel a bit easy and not too diverse in my opinion, but hey :D it's a game jam. A creative concept and really fun to play!


thank you for the feedback and indeed, we did have somes difficulties with the level design, but when the jam is done we will work on it :) 


Good luck! I've followed you guys, I'd love to play it when you've updated it


This was such a cool game! I really enjoyed the art style and music and the concept was very smart, this game had a lot of potential! :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thanks a lot for the comment. 

Never heard, will look ! 

great! :D


I love the concept ; it's really well thought out. The music fits well with the game. Good job guys !!

Thank you ! We really appreciate your comment :)
