Atmospheric as hell! The graphics and lighting were gorgeous as well. I don't want to spoil anything, but overall extremely depressing.

Great work!

I was on the edge of my seat waiting for you to finish your game :D
Very cool indeed!

You create feelings as much as you make games. Like your previous game it makes me think of things I hardly ever do while playing a game. Great theme usage. We all only really get one other who will cast light on the dark holes so we can see them and safely jump over them to go on. The two friends reminded me of the old Head Over Heels game from the C64, Spectrum.

Nice mood and lighting. Could a monk fall in love with fairy? Interesting! Well done!

Awesome atmosphere & pixel art. The light effects are very cool, the colors too. The only problem is the very linear gameplay. Overall, good job !

Nice idea, but could have used more gameplay elements. As mentioned before, it's very linear.

Interesting use of light and good game mechanics. I know that you probably made the music yourself, but I found it quite annoying, you might consider changing it or removing it altogether. Ovwerall, a good atmospheric game.

So sad. REALLY great interpretation of the theme. Loved this game, only the sound effects were below the niveau of the rest of the game. Still one of the best entries.

For some reason I love games with light mechanics. There aren't enough of them. Lovely game. The messages in the game were touching.

Simple and clean. I like the concept, though I think the dual control scheme would work better with some puzzles. Nice atmosphere, although it feels a little preachy.
