If this isn't just the neatest little game. Or I thought so at least. Definitely little though, but not too disappointingly so.
The platforming is really fun and smooth though, and can get pretty challenging at times, though not extremely so. And there's plenty of diversity, usually each planet has a different gimmick and often it's necessary to revisit areas in the same sector multiple times, since there's some minor puzzle elements involved.
The graphics are alright but not a huge factor of the game. The plot is kind of non-existent save for the intro and ending(s).
Worth checking out though I'd say, but probably on sale.

In essence this game consists of complex jumps with little margin for errors, often with a countdown timer alongside it. Personally I don't like time trials based games, they're just too torturous.

Otherwise this is a simple but well made game.

Saira is, at its very core, an exploration platformer.

Treat it as such, and make sure you set up some good keybinds - I ended up fanagling a controller setup with the game, as I was disappointed with the default keyset. (Seriously, who binds jump to S?)

Very open, and many of the puzzles suggest that you should know something you don't. If you're prone to ragequits, don't bother.

A completely awesome, challenging, long-ish game. The controls are easy and responsive, the puzzles and the few time trials are fun, challenging, but completely possible if you put some effort into them, and for me, you just have to keep dieing and restarting, but never give up. Love the simple art-style, love the story, for how simple it may be, and even open ended. I cant wait till this has new scenes to continue the story, with new planets, puzzles, and challenges
