The trailer is so beautiful, what a story line! I bought it but have to get an old window machine working so I can dig in. 

Oh noooo! My computer with all the source files died a while ago and I was never able to make an HTML5 version like I wanted.
Let me know what you did (if you get it to work) so I can post it for others.

Love it! I especially like the gameplay design of the last level, where the player can control Deer and Wani to make it through together. I didn't realize I could do that the first time I played, I had Wani can go through the darkness alone. It was a very memorable moment when I figured it out. Thank you for the awesome game!

Oh thank you!!

Very nice! I like the mechanic of losing light if you continue conversations :) And the rare shifts in perspective (zoom) gave a dramatic effect to the flat graphics style.

Thank you!
