One and One Story, a romantic little platformer.

Stick around for the bonus levels (and see if you can find the hidden ending).

What a fun and addictive game! I'll have to play more levels tomorrow. Thanks for posting.

I can't get it to run. I just see the intro (Firefox), and then a black screen.

Runs fine in FF 15 here. It's pretty cool, a little Braidish. In that I seem to be stumped at level 2 - how to work the "when she sees me she runs to me" thingy.

I can always use more things in my life that are Braidish. Thank you for posting this.

Ah, never mind - that's a neat mechanic.

What's messed up is that you can die quite easily on the last level, if you miss that crucial two letter word platform.

I think the Bonus Round was easiest of all, but I don't think I found a hidden ending.

Please ignore it. Once you get past the cheese the game gets good.

Also, if you're looking for another romantic little platformer, might I suggest Don't Look Back.

Ending spoiler, rot13'd if you want to keep your eyes virginal:

"Gehfg zr, V jba'g uheg lbh… nal zber, zl ybir." Probably said from the perspective of the male figure.

WELL THAT'S NOT CREEPY. NOT AT ALL.

OKAY, MAYBE SPOILERS:

I took them as spoken by the female figure. Making the male walk along the words was a way to demonstrate his trust that those words are substantial. Trusting his own words doesn't really work as a metaphor.
