A leaf. I must say I feel a little despondent that I couldn't convey the resemblance. Probably should have stuck with a static sprite instead of trying to be all fancy with animation. :D
Ah, sorry! The sprite looked like a bird that was dancing. I thought they were happy about the fall, though everyone was sad, but now I guess that's wrong, haha. I guess what threw me off was that one end of the leaf seemed to be moving more than the other, like a bird's head. :p
Edit: This is your first game? Very well done!
Yeah, it took me like 6 variations to come up with a sprite that would resemble a leaf in the wind, but even then it wasn't 100 percent legible. Oh well. :)

Yes, it is! Having a deadline of a game jam + a simple engine like Bitsy was very helpful for dipping my toes into game dev and getting it done. :) Thank you!
