A ton of potential here, just a lot of things that need to be improved.  The floaty controls and strange collision handling (you can literally get stuck on the ceiling).  Over all though the idea is solid and I can see a fun puzzle game being made around this mechanic.

Thanks for the creative feedback! Next Jam I'll make sure to prioritise the "feel" of the game as well :)

This is a tough one because I think the idea is great but the execution could do with some refinement. The collisions are very sticky, which might be needed for moving the camera around but it makes the platforming controls feel a bit unpredictable. Also, the start of level 5 is frustrating, I'd drop that bit. Still, I'm a big fan of the concept, which is a big part of a game jam. I hope you develop this further.

Thanks for the constructive feedback!  Yeah it's definitely isn't that smooth... If I were to redo it I'd probably code the platforming scripts at the start and then implement them into the Physics engine (instead of the other way around). Thanks again :)

Great concept, but the controls are a bit floaty

Great game, well done
