Nice! This reminds me of 2600 Adventure in a way.

A direct to the game link. Right click save to play off line.

EDIT
Thanks! An intriguing game, cleared the two Domes, a wonder how far this goes.
Other games at JT 's link above looks interesting. Bookmarked!

I'm glad you guys liked it. I really liked the concept of a slowly unfolding world where your perspective broadens as you play. The game doesn't even need enemies because the exploration is so fun.

A bump for a great game, quick looked at the start of level 2. Damn I wish I could save, may have to devote an hour or two to see this game thru. Without giving away the ending, did anyone see how long to complete the game?

A lot better then that mesmerizing "Another day at the Office" game you posted earlier JT. :D

I just played it through to the end. It's not as long as you think, maybe half an hour at the most depending on how well you manage certain jumps.

It's actually rather depressing though.

Okay just finished the game. Don't quite understand the ending, thought there was a way to get a positive. Don't give it away, let's see what others come up with.

This is one of those games my Game Controller Keyboard Mod is designed for. :mrgreen:

In typing these words, I keep thinking the cursor is going to fall! :lol:

There's another game related to Small Worlds called Darkfate that is done in the same style. You can download it here:

http://kevinsoulas.fr/darkfate_page/telecharger.php

Yes, there is a bunch of French on that page, but if you don't speak French just scroll down and click on the 2nd button that says "Telecharger" and it will let you download the English version of the game.

Thanks! Looks like the same Atari 2600 inspired programming. The separate MP3 tracks are great too! Unzipped on the PC, no install needed. At Atomic Level 4.

So why do I keep thinking of Slot Racers, Trying to twist the character's head around? :D

So I just played through and finished it.

Bottom Line: Awesome from start to finish with a wonderfully contemplative and soul-searching score. I don't quite get the ending though (quite depressing as Ack said too).
