A game about life and its unavoidable end, death, and the things that happen in between. A story told through images. A pretentious attempt at making art through game mechanics. Start as a baby and grow all the way into the grave, gaining and loosing abilities as time passes you by.

A fantastic charming platformer about life and death that is just so good at representing a life lived. It is very minimalistic and quintessentially indie. It simply spoke to me and just seemed very profound, a terrific experience.
