A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

from a time when i doubted myself and hoped my bad work would be overlooked and forgotten, orbs is an exploration game that leaves most players without hope.

sort of like a horror game. just a platformer.

Install instructions

this game has no sound. that's not a bug. it's not a feature, either.

i recommend listening to something appropriate in the background, but it's up to you.

I really liked this!  I wound up having to draw a map

oooh yeah. this is so good. the flashing red blocks are absolutely perfect

Had a few goes at this and at first couldn't figure it out, but then it grew on me. It was surprisingly creepy. 

Anyway looks nice and enjoyed the challenge.

aww dang, I got stuck in a wall and I am pretty sure it wasn't intentional :( was falling inbetween screens. Can send you a screenshot if you want.

please do! i'll fix it asap, but i kinda broke the codebase a LITTLE bit, soo asap might be a while


Really cool concept. Loose platforming controls made it a bit for frustrating than it had to be, but the tradeoff was it made you really pay attention to the level design and plan a route.

That was an interesting mechanic. The ghost were truly a nightmare! I love your platforming maze games with unique touches!
EDIT: Wish there was some sound, tho :/


This is hell. I just want my orbs, but they keep getting taken from me. Orb hell.

What a taunting game. When I (thought) I figured it out, I realised it was gonna be very difficult and I don't have the time or brain power but I'll come back to this! >< Thanks so much

I went right in Level 3's second screen and got thrown into something that seems to be a level editor?

whaat? that's not right. i'll check it out

an unfortunate bug. thx for catch.

repaired (i hope)
