I can't get past Persephone. For the last note, it's like my lyre is out of tune.

Some help for Paul R.

on Persephone, its not that you repeat her melody. Note the color of the flowers. they correspond to those on the tree. Play around with it and they will all open.

hope this helps!

Nice concept, but too short.

Ever heard of the music that charmed a savage breast?

...That mental image just made my day.

@SonicLover LOOOOOOOOL. That made my day.

On the game. It's beautiful, and charming, but it was quite short.

Nice game! Liked the music and the concept, but I think it was too easy and short. Also,

I thought it was unnecessary at the end of the credits where he goes into the light but she doesn't and then the game just resets.


I think that part was just silly, but besides that, great game!

@ Orangurumi

I don't like the way it cuts either, but there is a good reason for showing that. In the myth this was based off of, Hades made a deal with them. They could leave, but Orpheus could not look at his love until they had both left the underworld. When Orpheus exited the underworld, he looked back at his love, but SHE had not left yet and she was forced to go back.

Adding to what Flare said, Orpheus turned because Eurydice was lagging behind, and he thought that she had tripped.
