Uncover the secrets that will help save reality itself.
A little closer to heaven u2013 an old dream of mankind u2013 comes true at least virtually. Our avatar is called Auk and is one of the last form transformers. It can switch at any time between a human form and its bird shape. Our world was torn apart...
by a great event. With the u201e sized Zerfallu201c the earth shattered, mountains were blown up, rivers dried up and many small and bigger islands float in the atmosphere since then. Thanks to our abilities we can still travel from one island to the next. Our mentor Medvin sends us to the Shrine of Khara and so we set out to find out what has happened to the world. The game tries to give us a lot of freedom and only gives us a few hints in the starting area in which direction we have to fly to follow the main story u2013 or we simply turn into a bird and explore the beautiful world on our own. The game attaches great importance to simple concepts, which mainly include the design of the world and the music. Everything in this world consists of coarse and fine polygons u2013 characters, figures, plants, islands and clouds and invites you to explore. In the background we are accompanied by soft, unobtrusive sounds, which pick up speed as soon as we change to the shape of a bird and fly to the sky. Auk can best be controlled with a controller and after a short adaptation to the new freedom of movement in the sky it works quite well. So good that we spend most of our playing time gliding in the air and circumnavigating the islands and all possible perspectives. Everywhere we discover small details on the island, which we look at up close. Mysterious stone figures and debris bear witness to the shattering events of the past. Puzzles unravel and we find caves and temples and get closer to the main story about the mysterious world. The story about Auk and the flying island gets even more depth in the course and we learn how it came to the big disintegration and who we are. br>
We had so much fun flying around that we could hardly get away from the game. We would have liked to have flown around even more and discovered even more loving details and islands. Time flies like in 'Flights' even if AER is much too short for our taste and the puzzles aren't really hard, the game is still worthwhile
