The first of a 3-part series of fangames, all with different parts of the same story. Intended to be for people who enjoy a sort of abstract story-driven adventure game, and not so much for those interested in strictly needle.

This really is quite good, but it's a daggone shame it's so short. Luckily, it's the first in a three-part series! What's that? No other part has been released? It's been three years? Oh... well, nevermind.

Nonetheless, this is an excellent game built on mood and an abstract story-telling method that gives you very little to go on: the name of the game, the general mood, and the ending. There's also the fact that you have no double jump immediately and this is granted to you by a feather which is illuminated by heavenly rays, but that tells less concerning some sort of plot. There seems to be this apocalyptic tone throughout the game, based on the rather somber music and dilapidated saves combined with the fogginess.

The needle itself is quite enjoyable as well, leaving nothing to be desired. I would be quite happy to see the series go on, but alas, all we have is this one amazing amuse-bouche.

A shot adventure with a heavy focus on atmosphere and story.

A shame it is this short, but it definitely does its job at immersing someone into it by using very simple aesthetic visually and audibly efficiently.
The story is a bit more mysterious to figure out and might just be opened to interpretation to the people.

Really nice and atmospheric. I needed to use the Game Maker Patch Tool to fix slowdown on this game. Super short with a few hard jumps, and a very sad ending...
