Brief Play Description: 

Chalk Dust is not just another platform game. It overturns the genre’s gameplay and fools gamers changing their usual playing field perception. Almost everything is a deception, try to find the truth.

Focusing on a single player gaming, it lets the users control, with the arrows, a flock of chalk jumping across platforms drawn on a blackboard, each one defined by its own effects. The game’s goal is to reach a key that grants the access to the next level within a time limit of five minutes and therefore freeing the main character from its ephemeral chalky existence.

Be carefull you may not be able to complete the game! Challenge your patience!

Temporary FIX

kudos to Zed from indievault.it for posting a quick workaround for the bug.
when you get stuck at the door after finishing a stage,just press the windows key on your keyboard and the game will be minimized to the windows taskbar. click its tab again and you'll be back into the next stage.

have fun!
