This looks absolutely beautiful. I feel like it could have a bit more gameplay, but the graphics are gorgeous.

amazing job on the graphics and animation! you really set an amazing mood and i am a sucker for adventure/story games. i really see how it can really get pushed further and really tell an amazing tale with your beautiful graphics.

Wow! Great graphics, great sound. The atmosphere is really the best part though. If you built on this further in the future, I'd be interested in playing it.

Very cool. Great use of effects and I liked what few puzzles there were. My least favorite thing was the jumping animation.

I really like the style and surreal nature of the world. I will admit I got stuck at the four doors (I downloaded the source to see if it gave any clues but didn't see anything obvious. Oh well.

The graphics, audio and atmosphere come together to make the game absolutely gorgeous.

Very moody (in a good way). The graphics are awesome! Could definitely use some sound effects, though not too many. Maybe just footsteps. Music also fits perfectly.

Not a lot of gameplay I suppose. Also, I only got past the 4 door room once, and the new place I came to didn't (seem to) have an exit. I reloaded and couldn't get past the 4 doors again.

Overall, I give it 4/5 meows.

I like the graphics, music and overall mood, but there isn't a lot to do sadly.

Awesome work, rxi! The graphics are beautiful, the atmosphere is great. It's a bit lacking in the gameplay department though, and I got stuck on the deja vu part (not exactly relevant). Good work!

The door part was a bit hard to understand at first, but then I got the point. Beautiful game. I'd like to create mood like that too. And I'd like to play post compo version of it again.

Perfect LD submission. Most of what i want to say has been said in the comments, art, sound and game is great. I liked the "deja vu" part. Good job and good luck =)

This game is extremely pretty and the music was well done, but it didn't feel much like a game. I wasn't sure what my goal was, and eventually I got stuck in a room with 4 doors.

Well, by far the most atmospheric 'game' I've ever played via Ludum dare, and probably one of the most I've ever played in general. This is dripping fantasticness. The ending huuuuummmmmmmmmmmmm just feels..so..right, I listened to it for like 30 minutes after I finished the game.

Or at least, I *think* I finished. The gameplay is lacking or confusing one. Thoroughly enjoyable though.

I love how this looks, beautiful. I got through the 4 doors, seemed like after that you just watch the sun go down.
The pixel cat was adorable. Great audio and overall mood.

I like the sense of loss and confusion, very dream-like. This is the raw mood of a dream.
TomboFry
17. Dec 2013 · 16:48 UTC
Graphically amazing, as always!
As others, I got stuck at the deja vu part, and I wasn't sure how it was linked to the theme, but a great atmospheric game none the less.

Very nice graphics and a unique atmosphere are the strong points of this game. I got past the 4 doors but then I got stuck. Overall I enjoyed playing but I am sure I would enjoy way more if I could reach the ending.
Venks
17. Dec 2013 · 18:06 UTC
Set a great atmosphere. The overall story and feel was great. But the game was missing any sense of progression, and even though the puzzles were doable there didn't have any sense of direction to it

Okay, not really sure what's going on. I just did a lot of walking and then got stuck at an area with four doors that seemed to loop me to the same place with the same scenery. I mean, the presentation is pretty fantastic, but I barely found anything in terms of gameplay content.

I really enjoyed visual part. There's always a risk that smooth gradients will ruin pixel art impression, but you managed to mix it just perfectly.

Sorry but for all the good graphics in the world this had very little game-play. overall you get a three. But on the bright side you get fives on graphics and mood.
pighead10
17. Dec 2013 · 20:40 UTC
Meh. Superb graphics and music, but the lack of gameplay made it unenjoyable for me. I would have probably enjoyed this a lot more if I had not already played three very similar games which were also sound/graphics/storyline/abstract heavy, but limited in gameplay.
BradleySmith
17. Dec 2013 · 20:49 UTC
By far the best entry I have played yet, absolutely brilliant! I love the dreamy feel to this, very well done and nice to see an emotion focused game. Rated highly across the board.

The MUTE button is totally obsolete :D This soundtrack is just gorgeou, it would be nice to be able to download the soundtrack.
Really beautiful and calm game, reminded me of proteus :)

This was simply beautiful. Atmospheric and intense, mesmerizing. I didn't quite get the ending (you just float and then nothing), but in hindsight the whole thing felt like the character was dying. The cat companion was great because it made you feel less lonely, but in the end you couldn't really interact with her. This all feels very metaphoric. Again, nice work!

Too bad there's little gameplay and, as many others, I got stuck at the deja vu part.

Very beautiful game and a great mastery of particle effects. The rythm is sometime good, but many other times, it feels a little boring. I actually gave up after going back and forth 3 times in a level, the one with the fridge and the table outside.
Good job anyway!

Beautiful art and mood! I loved exploring the world you've created and seeing what can be done. I eventually hit the room with 4 doors and wasn't sure what to do from there, but up until the point everything was really well done. Great job!

Very nice visual. I can understand there's a lack of gameplay if it's an art piece, but I ended up stuck and never figuring out the story or message. It looks very nice, but it needs substance somehow.

graphics and audio and glowey text all make a really captivating atmosphere. Definitely a narrative game though, and I got stuck at the set of 4 doors.
stvr
30. Dec 2013 · 02:36 UTC
Really pretty and great sound, of course. The story is a bit incoherent, but the dialogue is well-written, and while I would have liked a more "conclusive" ending, what we got was good for a 48h game. Nice work!
Yoni
01. Jan 2014 · 22:33 UTC
Graphics and atmosphere are simply AWESOME, but I couldn't figure out how to play the game (like everyone else I got stuck at the 4 door room).
AdventureIslands
04. Jan 2014 · 04:57 UTC
Great atmosphere, but the game itself didn't really seem to go anywhere. It wasn't very clear when doors appeared or where they take you, like in the room with 4 of them. And the ending wasn't really clear about anything at all. What's the deal with the cat? narrative keeps pointing to it but nothing comes of it.
nyrrrr

But the graphics are amazing. I really dig them.
And that atmosphere and soundtrack <3

For the 4 doors:

Hint 1: There are 2 rooms with 4 rooms.



Hint 2: Most doors take you back to the first.

A lovely game, got to the deja-vu bit but got stuck there. In general I think the levels up to that one worked very well even though I wasn't entirely sure what triggered the doors when. A graphical comment, I don't know if it was intended, but the cat walked behind the fridge on one of the outdoor levels.

I just finished the game. It has an awesome atmosphere created by both astonishing visual effects and an intriguing musical background. Everything here reminds us of a dream (dark screen, recurrent flashes, déjà-vus and finally the big fall). However, I might have missed what was the link with the theme here.

*Spoilers*
Endless scrolling: Try to get rid of your companion.
4 Doors: Listen carefully to the 4 sounds.
Déjà-vu: If you were in the kitchen as visited previously, you could see a door.

I'm not sure I really understood what the game is about. Is it just a painting of a "dream atmosphere" or are there real thoughts I missed ?
Still, it's a pretty neat realisation, congrats !

Great atmosphere, really enjoyed the art and music / sound! The deja vu part was a bit confusing, ended up getting lucky and spamming "c" until I went through the invisible door. The audio cues on the 4 doors part was pretty brilliant, but I think I only got it because I'm a composer :P. Reading the other comments I think it may have been confusing for others. Overall it's pretty awesome, especially for 48 hours!

wow! I like the mood of this! And the graphics are really impressive!

I couldn't really figure out what you were meant to do in the section with 4 doors, but I managed to get out somehow anyway.

I'm a little unsure how it fits with the theme though.
Sim
06. Jan 2014 · 23:27 UTC
Very nice graphics and atmosphere. I didn't really understand the text or what I did right to make the game progress, but I guess that's the point. Length was about right - if it were any longer I'd get tired of the abstractness and demand some gameplay. Music was nice too.
Christina Nordlander
06. Jan 2014 · 23:38 UTC
Beautiful graphics, audio and mood. Gameplay felt a bit lacking, but reading the hints other people posted, I realise that there were indeed puzzles, so that's down to my own obtuseness.

All in all, it didn't really gel with me, but it is beautiful and artistically produced. Kudos.

wupto
09. Jan 2014 · 16:00 UTC
Great game, I like the audio and overall mood but there's one thing I really don't understand, in my opinion, it doesn't deserve #1 on graphics, I don't like them. They are way too simple, no shading, no contrast, look flat and that Superbrothers style is overused. The snow doesn't look good too, it's placed unfitting and the animations are simple (which isn't actually a bad thing) and stange looking too. It doesn't make a game beautiful if it has tons of glowing particles and falling snow in it. I hate to judge about a free game that was done in 48 hours but I hope you understand and please try a different art-style next time :)
