How does your submission match the theme?
The main concept of the game focuses on carrying objects. Carrying objects has multiple purposes like blocking projectiles and getting up on difficult ledges. Would've had more intuitive multi purpose features but had to compromise, so my bad if the experience it not fulfilling enough. Carrying stuff is the main control to solve most problems in the game, although the hasty development might challenge that statement. Just me in the team.
Also check the game page for controls and more info (people keep asking).

Liked the option to carry boxes overhead or in front of you.  The aesthetic reminds me a lot of the Klonoa and Treasure games like Silhouette Mirage. Would like to see what other ideas you had in mind. Kept dying in the level with the stacked staircase boxes. I would walk into the staircase boxes but die. I had to be careful to avoid getting stuck in there and dying. Cool stuff though!

Nice game. Liked the Error > Retry metode. Only a interface would be nice. Knowing ohw to reset the game. A notifcation from the game it self. :D
