UPDATE: I strongly recommend you give the xbox 360 controller version a try. If you enjoyed the compo version, the controls just feel a lot more natural with the gamepad.

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare #32 "An Unconventional Weapon"

You're a kid with a kite. Defend yourself from coyotes and bats (with your kite) and try to reach the sun!

If you enjoy the game, consider following Dustout on Twitter @DustoutGames, or check out our website http://www.dustout-games.com

The game tells you how to play it, but just in case:

*note: not all abilities are available from the start.

-Move with arrow keys
-Hop with up arrow
-Press up arrow while running into a step up to climb
-Hold space and use arrow keys to move the kite
-Press E to attack
-Hold space, move your kite to a ledge, and press W to grab it.
-Press Q to soar
