  • Mouse cursor is visible in fullscreen.
  • Blue cubes clip through walls, and the physics sent one of them flying out of the level when I picked up another one
  • There's one wall in the first cavern where the copy paste level design is obvious.
  • Lava hitboxes are unclear, and give you no time to react to being on fire. I died 2-3 times in a hallway cause I didn't see a tiny crack in the ground.    
  • You can carry two cubes at once.
  • Jump clips against the ceiling then slides along the ceiling.
  • Binding Alt to drop is bad for demo day versions at least bc people alt-tab away to write feedback
  • Dying the third time to janky hitboxes in the room with platforms is where I would have quit.
  • I clicked on both orbs, got no feedback, they disappeared, the door is till closed???? I was holding cubes while I clicked on one of them....
  • Minor, but when you respawn you should not be facing towards the initial spawn point, but towards the area of the level you're solving, or at least the door.

Anyway, you listed most of the stuff that was kinda problematic already, the only other thing I noticed is that sometimes when moving forward, the character keeps moving forward in a way that feels a little unnatural. Like it doesn't stop immediately but keeps going for a short amount of time at a fixed velocity then abruptly stops. Not sure if I explained that well.

Well, you already said it's pretty early in development, so you're probably still working  on that stuff. It's already a really pretty cavern though.

Thanks, man, the movement issue is weird, but I want to revamp it altogether since it doesn't seem to be working at all right. I'll hopefully have something more substantial for the next Demo Day.

Thanks again,

Snow
