A downloadable game for Windows

Beyond the Sky is an illustrated dark point and click adventure. The protagonist is Selene, a young lady living in a tower who dreams to reach the Moon. After being tricked by the wolf she finds herself alone in a dark wood and must find a way to escape and fulfil her dream. Beyond the Sky is a narrative game which features challenging logical puzzles, but it's also a mysterious journey of self-discovery.

  • Narrative point and click adventure
    Beyond the Sky is a point and click adventure, but also a visual novel: an experimental mix of game and literature.
  • Focused on logical puzzles well integrated with story
    In Beyond the Sky all puzzles are part of the story and are based on logical deduction. There's no item combination and no pixel hunt.
  • Philosophical game
    Beyond the Sky is a mysterious journey in which Selene (and therefore, the player) will have to deal with important themes like the sense of life and death, loneliness, sadness, uncertainty, power, war and so on.
  • Game about self-confidence
    At the beginning Selene can interact with the surrounding world in a limited way, but during the game she'll become more self-confident and she'll learn to look beyond appearances and interact with the world in a deeper way.
  • Unique and peculiar graphic style
    The graphic style of the game is inspired by the masters of the genre and the masters of art and is entirely hand-drawn.
  • Two game modes
    You can either play using the in-game journal or common pen and paper. In the first case Selene will take note of every useful information, otherwise you'll need to use the old-fashioned pen and paper.
  • Interesting dark atmosphere
    Inspired by pop culture, European literature, and art. Take a look at our sources of inspiration.
  • Great original soundtrack
    An original and evocative soundtrack specifically composed for the game.

Hey there! Just stopping by to say that I really loved the demo. I started a full playthrough of it, but the puzzles are so abstract and satisfying to solve that I ultimately decided not to give anything away in a video. Instead, I just mentioned the game in the "bonus" section of my latest episode of Toast Bites.

The notes puzzle stuck me for a bit, but I wasn't sure if I had everything I needed from the hole in the wall, if something was buggy or what so I'm looking forward to the full release to see where things go. I love the art style so much and the richness of the deep night-time colors. The music is fantastic too. 

I also commend you for your notes/items system because the ability to move things around and arrange them on screen as needed is huge. You also understood very well what information needs to be referred back to and how without fluff. 

When doing the wind puzzle, I originally drew my own diagram with pen and paper to keep track only to be pleasantly surprised when I realized you already had an identical dynamic diagram I could follow my progress with built right in. That's the kind of attention to detail not all developers give, so kudos and good luck!

This is really cool, can't wait for it to come out!

I got stuck at the puzzle with the notes... Is there a hint system or a walkthrough somewhere?

Hi, thank you for your kind words!

Sadly the hint system will be only in the full version. If you need help with the puzzles you can send us a mail and we'll try to reply as fast as possible.

Very interesting

Thank you so much!
