"The Second Sky" is a well crafted, incredibly challenging game that will make you rethink how puzzle games are played...
-Jeff Ortloff, Just Press Start
Finishing off a dozen or so rooms to complete a dungeon provides as satisfying an "Aha!" moment as the best puzzle games out there.
-Cameron Wade, Leviathyn
