Hello! I enjoyed your game, it had a simple premise and was fun to wander around in. The shrines could have been a little more spaced out as I found two nearly side by side. But still good luck with your future projects! I made a let's play of your game here~
Spirit of the Sky
A downloadable game for Windows
"A cold chill comes from the Northern mountains, the people whisper of angry gods..."
You are a Brave young Seer, sent out by your village to stop the Endless Snowstorm which is destroying your village's crops and killing it's people.
To do this you must venture atop the old Mountain to the Ancient Shrine and light it's 4 corresponding Shrines.
It's easy to get lost in this Storm and You will freeze to death if exposed for too long. Be sure to take refuge in the old Caves to hide from the Storm.
Upon lighting the all the Shrines the gods will be appeased and the Storm will stop. Saving the village and it's people.

Thanks so much for playing and taking the time to make a let's play. Those Shrines might have been placed close together due to the random placement code, and this can happen from time to time. Thanks again :)
I played your game and had some thoughts of improvement! Hope it helps!
- White border around text for better visibility.
- Pause function.
- No movement animation when moving with controller.
- No way to enter/exit caves with controller.
- You should be able to see the eyes of the character when moving downwards.
- I think I walked out of the map, a black border came and then it started blinking. It was after the third or fourth checkpoint thingy. I walked straight upwards for a while.
Anyway, this was my thoughts during the time I played. It's looking really good! :) You got inspiration from Journey didn't you? Good job!
Hmmm, odd. I had animations working with my controller but I'll look into fixing that for sure as well as the black border issue which I haven't encountered in my playtests. But thank you for the critiques and taking the time to play and write this up. Always much appreciated when making these things :)
And yes, Journey was a little inspiring ;)

There's a gif on the issue. I played on windows 10 64-bit Home Edition if it helps you to know.
Happy I could help :)
