Really cute looking game! I included it in my Dive Jam compilation video, if you’d like to take a look :)

I found the mechanics really interesting and the level variety was refreshing.  I also enjoyed the dialogue, it was quite riveting.

It really threw me off at first, that I was trying to die and feel completely hopeless thinking " how do I do that in a video game?". I really like the concept, I think you should push it further. My only comment would be that many times, I need to "die" and try to understand what does what. I think it helps the purpose of the game, but a little more colors coding or visual indicating the role of each item you can interact with would help a long way for me to pass that damn level 5!!!!! :P Thanks for making a game Crunch! You getting better at this!

I loved how you swapped the idea of most games on its head. The objective to die, rather than survive.
