A downloadable game for Windows

A thousand years ago it stopped raining, and all Earth's water evaporated into the clouds.

For over a hundred years people have been building towers to attempt to reach the clouds, so they can get the water they need to survive.  And for over a hundred years they've failed.  It's been a long time, but you're not done building yet.

Explore the last monuments of humanity, as one of the only people alive, while coming to terms with the bleak reality that lies ahead.

bittersweet narrative flies from towers in clouds.  a bucket of rain worth more than all thoughts that people share.  reflection upon inner monologue witheld to the supple conclusions.  scrawling trowels supporting the world as a whole, relentlessly crafted experience admirably complete.

One hell of a story and a beautiful setting for such a depressing time. I loved playing this game and soon im gonna try some of your other games

Really enjoyed it, it was a nice, short experience. Did you do the voice acting of the main character yourself by the way ?

i like it 

THE STORY WAS SO GOOD and i honestly don't know why i got so attached to the main character but i really enjyoed this game!!

Amazing graphics, We want more games like these

This game really gave me "nevermore" flashbacks, loved that game and was always worried with would slip away with time. 

Walking sims like this often go underappreciated but I for one love them.

I think this game concept is amazing, it lacks proper gameplay, being only a walking simulator, but if it had an indie team working on it, I'm 100% sure this concept would make a great survival game/ city building game/ story game with NPC relations, set on a different tower. Even with all this feedback I still thought this game was amazing and would not rate it lower than a 10/10 as far as indie games go.

Loved this game. It was super enjoyable to play.

What a wonderful and charming game. It's so serene and the feeling of loneliness so genuine, that it felt like I'd played for 2 minutes. Needless to say, it was 10 minutes longer, so the only thing I can say is, "Well done and kudos to all involved!"

Really enjoyed playing this game!

I really enjoyed this experience.  I would been more immersed if there had been just a few more basic sound effects. 

Amazing game love it

The game is very good, I would like to localize the subtitles in my language. This can be done? I think this will further expand the audience of your game project)

I absolutely loved this one :) 

I made a video...

Excellent job on the ambient story telling. The art style and colors of the towers really made it. Everything felt very dry and dusty.

I love the atmosphere of this, hope we can get more of it someday

It bothers me that this game has voice acting but no way to disable it. The main character sounds too aloof for the situation he's in.

So good

I've actually played this a few times, first on Steam then on Itch. Every time it's so relaxing and beautiful, even with the melancholy story.  There might be rain but...where is everyone?

Thanks for making this game, whenever I have a tough moment I know I can just open this up and chill for a few minutes. :)

i really enjoyed this game, keep up the good work dev's

This game is BEAUTIFUL and DREAMY!  I loved it!

A very unique short experience. I am glad that I stumbled upon this while checking out your Youtube channel. Great work! I am looking forward to playing your other games as well, especially Choo Choo Charles!

GOOD GAME FUN STORYLINE MADE ME HAVE SOME FUNNY MOMENTS THANKS

I liked it for a while - moving and the little stories were interesting to watch. But it felt a bit ... eh at the end. Not incomplete, so much, but just ... lackluster. I expected a bunch of different outcomes, but this all seemed a bit too empty. So while I liked the mechanics, I felt the ending was lacking.

Enjoyed the game, I have one question, did you make this game so that people will learn to not be selfish?? Cause that was what I took away from the end of this game and if it is, great job

Love the art and music and story. Excellent work

I had fun playing My Beautiful Paper Smile, this one is another masterpiece even with the short gameplay and simplicity of it. Keep making more games, please!

Dreamy game with really nice graphics.

This is a short, free game with the most fantastic atmosphere and a poignant story. I loved it and would buy a longer game based around this idea without hesitation.

just started playing And so far i love the atmosphere and story .  good job

I liked the experience very much, thank you!

Great Short Game, Love the atmosphere of the walking. I look forward to more!


This game is heavy on the CPU.

On my PC the game is more GPU intensive. Even in the menu my GPU is at 100% utilization.
My specs:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor 3.20 GHz
  • 16 GB RAM
  • AMD Radeon RX 580 Series
  • 4096 MB GDDR5 VRAM at 1750 MHz
  • 64 bit Windows 10 Home

Just posting this if the developer might want to troubleshoot.

Liked Cloud Climber a lot. Great work for a free game. 

Posted a review just because I felt it kind of deserved one.

So much bleakness and atmosphere here. Yes, it is a five-minute walk tops. Yes, it has a cartoonish texture style. Yes, it guides the player and just flat-out tells them what they should do next which is not great design. No, none of that really ruined this brief experience for me.

Writing is minimal in some ways, and fragmentary, incomplete, but it does enough to get a sense of the concept across. I wasn't entirely sure if the character was the last one left there or not - but clearly things had fallen apart very badly for his society which we seem to see as the last one left on Earth. Most of them maybe turned on each other shortly before this walk?

Ending was therefore both sad and beautiful, bittersweet. If the people there had lasted or held out a bit longer maybe they would have seen this. Maybe there are others still alive and they will. But not everyone.

It may be a brief story but it works enough, it is a good and genuinely interesting concept, and if the dev wants to push onwards to something longer and more substantial I would be willing to back that a bit TBH.

Us Indie devs need to stick together and help each other. It is a tough field and maybe we can assist each other in what we're doing.

I know firsthand - I have a ton of things on itch.IO and they are doing okay so far but not exactly going great. I keep working on them though. Hopefully someday some of that will take off nicely. https://matthornb.itch.io/

That was Amzing, I Love the Art Style...
