the story was to have a seagull bite off a finger at ten stages and at the end to have the climber get to a dead end with one finger + lose all hope, and the bird to eat it, and the man to fall to his doom, but the bird to have a change of heart and regurgitate a ten-fingered claw and to dive down and pull the nofingered climber to safety but there was only one stage so bye bye story. (sounds + ambience courtesy of )

controls: wsad + mouse

some people are getting weird upside-downness/mouse-inversion problems. Looking into it this evening. [ If you are getting it, try decreasing the quality to something at or below good – that should solve it ] should be fixed now – thanks bezzy : )

    I sort of figured it out. A lot of it revolved around me madly pushing Control and swaying around in a seemingly random manner. Hmm…

    I wish there was a bit more to the ending. Beautiful game though still.

    Entertaining game, definitely not a great ending. At first it was hard to get the hang of but once you figured out the mechanics and found out you actually have legs, it was pretty easy to make yourself sit down so grabbing wasn’t such a task

    Exhilarating and life-affirming. Really made me reconsider the beauty of the human body.

    You said the controls are wsad
    = mouse but you also need the control key. I walked around trying to figure out what to do forever until I read the comment that said you need to press control.

    This was a legitimately awful experience. I’m a huge fan of most of your games, but this was just not fun or even rewarding despite the lack of or presence of fun to figure out how to play, play, or finish.
