This game is beautiful. and it has beautiful music
Note: I recommend using keyboard for this game, as controller tool tips aren't present. The puzzles in the game also require number buttons 1 through 5.
I also recommend playing with the downloadable version, as the web browser version is a tad bit buggy in terms of audio and visuals, which is a big problem for this game. However, it does seem playable for those who can't download the game.
Music is such an important part of our lives. It has the ability to move others, and let them experience emotions, simply through sound. This young boy has been obsessed with music and playing the piano, and wants to make a difference in the world through his joy of piano. In this game, you play as the young boy, and follow him in the emotional imagination that is his own music and song. You take an entire journey to his dream, and then safely return back to the comfort of his own home.
Also, the theme of this game was not taken super literally. Keep in mind when you finish a puzzle, you can continue down the path. You don't have to go back from where you came.
Controls are explained in the game for the most part, but for those who want to use a combination of controller for movement and keyboard for the actual piano, here are those:
Movement: A and S OR Left Stick Left and Right
Jump: W / Space Bar OR Controller A
Crystal Listen/Music Staff (White) Door Open: E OR Controller X
PIANO: (number keys) | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |
I also really just want to give both Vimlark and the 8-Bits to Infinity Community a big thank you for such an amazing jam. I'm stoked to see what everybody else made, and I'm hoping you all will enjoy my game as well!

A really good game my man, you're a GENIUS!
Wow! The jam is over, but I wish I had played this while voting was open. I thought it was MAGNIFICENT! Bravo! Your passion, drive, and skill to communicate through this video game medium was simply enchanting. I've liked a lot of games in the jam, but this was the only one I kept thinking "Wow, I should share this with friend x, y and z!" Just amazing, really well done and well written. The slow fades there and back again nailed the theme. Unlike some others, I adored the bg music and thought that I was actually playing in time with it!! Keep up the great work, and keep trying to reach out your gentle hand to touch people: IT'S WORKING!
Very cute game but as others said the background music makes it hard to hear the piano notes. If you can add an option to disable that it would be great.
Hey, thanks for the review! I would probably have to find a way to make the track just quieter on certain parts, just because it is so crucial to the idea that you are within the musical dream of the little boy. But I should be able to figure that out in the future.
Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked it and found it an inspiring experience. I'll make sure to check out your game as well.
Very Cool Idea. I just cant get passed the early stages. I found the background music interfering with the gameplay. But this is still fun to play.
Hey, thanks for responding. Yeah, I've had a lot of people say this as well. Hopefully if I work on this game more I'll be able to find a way to make the music less distracting without removing it. But overall, thanks for checking it out, and I'm glad you thought it was a cool idea!
Really charming and well done! Congrats guys. Brings Freebird Games' vibes, which is always great. Good mechanics, a good teeny challenge in those last notes. Again, really well done! <3
Hey how's it going! I remember you from when we tried to do the other jam and it didn't quite work out. I'm glad you liked it! Yeah, I pretty much did everything myself, and used a free background because I ran out of time. But anyways, I'm really glad you liked it.
Really fun to play, also kinda challenging in the last few pieces, great work!
