Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (31 votes)

Trapped in your mortal daily life your body and soul are struggling to survive the daily problems of swarms of incomming evilness. Turn the badness into good by using it to levitate your soul into a higher state to enhance both body and soul. To become etherial: lure one of the creatures into a 'red node of wisdom'. The etherial state is only temporary so use it wisely! Keep working your way up the ladder of enlightenment until you reach the ultimate goal: nirvana!

This game is created in 46 hours for the global game jam 2009.
