Lori.hThere is a story behind the old mill, where the drunken skeleton awaits. A terrible story that may have been better lost with time. But this young girl is searching for the truth, letting herself be blown by the east winds farther into her past that she should have never entered. Shademare's The Old Mill is a free indie platform game with a deep story that you can only gain by collecting the jugs of alcohol and giving it to the worn out looking skeleton who appears on your path. You use the wind and your trusty white blanket to travel across the odd barren landscape. While you automatically use your blanket as a parachute of sorts by running off the edge with the [arrow] keys, pressing and holding [A] gives you a extra boost. Be careful, as you can only use this once each time your feet leave the ground and it won't recharge until you're safely back on solid ground. But not everything here is as solid as they look... branches will snap and dirt will crumble so you must always keep moving forward. And that's the only way to remember what happened at the old mill, if you want to remember at all.

the-old-millThere are two different areas in The Old Mill, the main landscape and the extra challenging levels, called "Blue Mill Levels", that you gain access to by giving the sun-dried skeleton a drink. When the shorter challenging levels are completed you get to see a bit more of the story. If you finish the game without letting all the skeletons wet their whistles you'll get a different ending depending on how much of the story you've uncovered. While on the main landscape there are blue spinning collectibles floating in the air. You'll need to collect these as they are payment for retries in the Blue Mill Levels. You'll need as many as you can get because traveling by wind isn't easy. It can be rather frustrating at times as while in the air it's nearly impossible to go left, so correcting your direction once in the sky is nearly impossible. Also if you're too close a wall/tree your extra jump button won't do you as good as all the force will just go into you smashing against the wall. Thankfully there are save points along the way so you always get a chance to try again. This is a game obviously made to be played more than once but the challenge stays and with the beautiful yet haunting music it's one you'll be happy to start again with.
