I come across this the other and did a quick revisit. Is there a sequel coming out
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
Afterlight is an ethereal puzzle and it features unique gameplay with mind-blowing riddles.
The game is split up into levels, and each one is a riddle itself. You start with an empty world and an exit door, but it's not so simple. You reveal the path by shooting magic and gathering the shards to make a complete picture.
The game is suitable for all ages and has English and Russian language support. 20 levels form a gameplay with duration for an hour (or even more!). All levels can be replayed in either order if unlocked.
After a week of fighting with engine I made it! *hooray* Test it, send to your friends and please tell me if something bad happens. If not, please tell me too :)
Known issue: the game path should contain only standard ASCII symbols (that means no diactric symbols, no non-english letters, only latin ones and digits). A desktop folder should work well.
You need keyboard and a mouse.

Wow, I had completely forgotten about this game until I found the download about 5 minutes ago. This game is fantastic and the puzzles are great, the graphics are very good and the audio is spot on.
I loved every minute of this game and IIRC I think I either bought or donated to the game but one thing is for sure. I am going to play it again.
Here's the link the full video did 1 year and 8 days ago.
Thanks for a great little puzzle based game guys and I wish you all the best for the future.

Could you allow the video to be shown on itch.io so others would watch it from game's page?
Btw I hope I will release a Highlight game in two-three months, a game with more narrative-focused and parkour-styled gameplay. Then I'll be creating the world of Afterlight as it should be created :) Don't forget to follow me on itch.io to be notified when a new game releases ;)
Here is a little sneak-peek of what I'm doing:
Absolutely stunning game.. I loved the visuals, the music and the atmosphere! A very big well done to the creator! :) If you would like to see what this game is about or would just like to enjoy a let's play on this game; then please feel free to check out my video here: :)
Beautiful game you have here. I loved the piano.
Afterlight looks very nice and well done but the pixel (well, polygon) hunting gets very annoying nearly immediately to me I'm afraid (which seems to be the main mechanic?).
I like to throw around the "this game is an experience/work of art" card on this channel. It's not that I'm loose in throwing it out left and right, but because I mean it when I say it.
That said, Afterlight is an experience.
It's a refreshing game. It still presents a bit of a puzzle challenge, but it doesn't challenge you the way most puzzlers do. It's like yoga compared to wind sprints: you end up mentally refreshed instead of mentally wasted.
The graphics are minimalistic to the point it's almost art. The controls are basic, nothing to write home about by any means, but it works for a game like this. What makes this game is the music though. The ethereal piano of hitting the orbs mixed with the relaxing background music perfectly sets the atmosphere.
An escape from reality. That's Afterlight in a nutshell.
