I'm a simple guy. Linux + FPS = Download.

That said I prefer level-designed games, rather than this randomized devil-daggers style arena stuff, so I'm not going to comment much on the gameplay.

+ The game is really pretty, thanks for allowing us to turn off color grading and chromatic aberration, it looks much better without them

+ Textures are nice and crisp, particles look good (apart from enemy hits, those triangles look a bit weird compared to everything else)

* You should consider an option to tone down the motion blur rather than just on/off

* Now maybe this is intentional, but as a doom/quake3/half-life player the movement inertia being relative to the camera is really off-putting for cornering and chaining jumps together. To be fair this is more like how Build did it and I'm sure people used to platforming in that might not be bothered as much by it.

- PLEASE have an option to turn off the strafing sway, I love me some tasteful view bobbing but I hate even the tiniest amount of this crap.

- There appears to be input lag from you rendering the mouse cursor inside Unity instead of getting the OS to do it.

- Game runs like hot garbage when shadows are turned on, even on the lowest setting. And frankly I can't really tell the difference anyway, the art style is focused so much on the bloom highlights that I can't even usually see the shadows in the first place.

- It's not always obvious how you died, especially when right next to the spawn walls, having the game freeze briefly before showing the score screen doesn't help either.

-Fastest time from launch to retarded screenshaking award goes to you! Congratulations!
-Selecting the name text and clicking somewhere else produces the explosion too, no idea why
-Minimize window to taskbar when I press [Windows Key]
-Let me press [Escape] to go back in menus
-Vertically center short menus, such as "Profile"
-Not a fan of [A][D] for strafing, would prefer [Q][E] as defaults and [A][D] either move to the sides or disabled
-Where's the fuggin key rebinding, what is this shit
-It's not obvious where I'm taking damage from, died what felt like arbitrarily 
-Game is smooth and feels good, but my laptop GPU is in the constant state of about to catch on fire
-No idea what my goal is 
-I'm never not pressing both mouse buttons, add a toggle shoot for each gun optionally if not by default
-My name wasn't saved on relaunch

I like how the game works and would pat $9.99 for 20-some coherent sequential levels. 
I never cared for the arena modes in games.

In the options there's a way to turn off screenshake.

-Let me press [Escape] to go back in menus

Will be in next update

-Vertically center short menus, such as "Profile"

There will be more info on this page next update

-Not a fan of [A][D] for strafing, would prefer [Q][E] as defaults and [A][D] either move to the sides or disabled
-Where's the fuggin key rebinding, what is this shit

key rebinding will be in next update

-It's not obvious where I'm taking damage from, died what felt like arbitrarily 

there will be an arrow pointing at the enemy that damaged you next update

-Game is smooth and feels good, but my laptop GPU is in the constant state of about to catch on fire

Glad you liked how everything felt. Optimization is still being worked on, but in the meantime, did the game run better at low settings?

-No idea what my goal is 

In first line in the description it states that it's a Survival Arena Shooter, you basically move really fast around a randomly generated arena and kill as many Angels as possible for the best score.

-I'm never not pressing both mouse buttons, add a toggle shoot for each gun optionally if not by default

In the options there's a way to enable One Button Shooting that fires both guns with one click

-My name wasn't saved on relaunch

Will be saved in next update


Thanks a ton for taking the time to play the game, I really appreciate the feedback! Makes me happy~

I wish I was good enough to appreciate it fully and offer better feedback but the movement is fluid and it felt great to chain wallslides together. The weapons are nice and punchy. Maybe give the jump pads a small vertical hitbox, I kept accidentally jumping over them. Very high quality full-pulp menu juice. Overall, nice!
