About Path to the Sky
Path to the Sky is a retro-platformer that combines traditional elements and direct controls with a vibrant and colorful look. Explore the mysterious world in the roles of Akamo and his helper Deoka, two friends that need each other in order to progress through the jumping-puzzle levels.
Path to the Sky is currently in early development. The core engine is written in C++, allowing me to compile on Windows, Mac and Linux with separate input and render code. My goal is to release the game on these platforms with minimal differences in terms of controls.If you want to follow the development, check out the following links. I am very active on twitter, so if you want to contact me, please go ahead :)

This is a little preview of one of the new mechanics that come with Deoka. Different kinds of elementals (fire here) can be transported via the bird to activate mechanics, disable traps, etc. Its early in the works but I hope you can tell what is happening.
Deoka is an elemental bird. You can control him to move elements such as fire, to light torches that will activate other mechanics like platforms. This shows how fire is moved. The player switches control to the bird, flys to the fire, picks it up and releases it at another torch. Then he switches back to Akamo, the main character.

Thats it! Thank you guys for the nice feedback about the game so far :)
