Gorgeous little prototype you have here! Definitely needs some polish, but it is a fantastic foundation!
Dark Light (Prototype)
A downloadable game for Windows
«Once upon a time, a little homeless boy lived in a cardboard box in a small town far, far away. He was very poor, but he was happy, because he had a friend, a lovely bird, who would never leave him. But one stormy night, the boy's only friend disappeared. So the little boy went on a long and exciting journey to find him.»

If you are Stuck in Level 1: You are standing in front of a wall with a chest in front of it? Grow the mushroom (or flowershroom, if you like :P ) on the wall with your light, then grab the chest and look for another growable mushroom at the beginning of the small park. (PS. Dont always look on the ground ;) )
