A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

A 2D side-scrolling fantasy platformer created by a small indie team at Columbia College Chicago.

Play as Aspen, a young moth who has found themselves suddenly separated from their family and thrown into a dark and mysterious world. Small, alone, and armed with only their trusty magical staff, Aspen will have to traverse unfamiliar lands and conquer new obstacles in order to find their way back home. Discover secrets and return light to the forest, all while exploring  beautiful, hand drawn environments.

This is a demo version of the game, and any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for playing!

I agree that this needs some attention. Not sure the best solution!

Thank you so much for the feedback! That's a feature we're hoping to implement soon, likely by creating a new, specific animation for that movement so that it looks more natural. Thanks for checking the demo out!
