Nice art and premise. I played this game and found the music relaxing. That said, I struggled with the controls near the first branch. I think this might be due to playing it on a laptop. I think it would be a good mobile game if you chose to develop it further. I feel it would work particularly well with touchscreen controls. Well done in making this in one week!


This game is definitely my favourite of the jam so far! The music is soothing and fantastic, and even without tutorials or control you instantly understand what you have to do to progress in the game. I loved the visuals, and the fact that I was pretty nervous before starting to play, and calm and relaxed immediately after, is the cherry on top!

Kudos to all of you!


Cool game! Meditative and beautiful, really like sounds and movement effects, so smooth :) What you did onthe finish is nice, it fits theme very good imho :)


Hi! I'll be playing Ephemera tomorrow on stream along with several others games from the jam at 3:30pm EST. I'll be talking about any interesting design decisions as I play, and suggesting improvements if any come to mind. Please feel free to join me live, it'll be extra fun to chat together about your game while playing it :)


Thanks for playing and for the feedback! We'll be sure to add that change to the beginning tutorial after the jam is done


Really entertaining to play, I enjoyed the little hide/seek with the leaves, great job!


WOW, What!?!?!?! This was GOOD! A 5 minute excellent implementation of the theme! A contained experience but undeniably well executed!
