The Forest Mirror

A small, gravity-based, 2D platformer where you explore the two sides of a broken world, in hopes of shifting them back into a stable state.

Apologies for any slowdown or lag throughout the HTML version of the game, I was rushed with this project and did not have time to optimize the game to be played on a browser, and therefore will run somewhat slowly until this issue is addressed. In the meantime, the game should run at a stable 60 FPS as a downloadable windows executable.

On another note, apologies for the volume of audio in the game, it is very quiet and may not even be heard at your volume, I will be fixing this shortly.

Hello! I really enjoyed your game, it had a cool idea and was very fun to play! While I didn't quite manage to finish it as the end puzzle was just out of my reach I had a fun time trying nonetheless. I made a let's play of your game along with a second part which will be out in a few days~

Great Game! But tree location at the beginning makes it so annoyingly repetitive.
At the end I've started to kill myself just to skip running back to save point.

great idea, love it!
