Hi, I guess you used the `AudioStreamPlayer2D` instead of `AudioStreamPlayer` because of which, I could only hear the stuff on my left earbud. Nice simple design overall. My best time was 20 secs. I guess I suck at such games...

Developer

Yeah, I didn't notice that thing about the `AudioStreamPlayer2D`, I just defaulted to it since it was a 2D game hah.

Thanks for playing it!

I tried to run you linux build, but it is missing the .pck file.

I played it a few times, the best time I got was 45 seconds. It's probably a lot of RNG, but it felt as if I just screwed up a lot which is good! I think you could do some experimentation with the art style, but besides that it would make a great arcade game.

Developer

Oh, sorry, I just updated a new build for Linux.

Yep, sadly I didn't have enough time to explore the graphics of the glitches.

Thanks for playing it! :)

Nice game. I really liked the idea, though.

Developer

Thanks!!

I like the soundtrack :D
But next time try to use the 'AudioStreamPlayer' instead of 'AudioStreamPlayer2D', if your sound doesn't depend on the ingame position. Like this people can enjoy it in stereo ;)
Actually I ran into the exact same issue with our game xD

Developer

Wow, great tip! That should be on the documentation (or maybe I just skipped it hah).

Thanks for playing it.

A small but nice game. I didn't manage to survive that long^^°. The moving screen feels a bit weird. I like the idea but its hard to react on it. I also like the the little cube glitches. They got nice transitions and colors :).

Nice game!

Hey, thanks! 

Yeah, I was tempted to add some visual indicators to warn about the screen movement, but I felt it was going to be a bit hard to balance.

Thanks again for playing it :D

Managed to survive exaclty 1 minute. The alien is super cute. I think it would be helpful, if there where any indication where the screen is moving towards next and the movement could be a bit faster.

Developer

Yep, I thought about putting some warning arrows to indicate the screen movement but I felt it was going to be hard to balance (I kind of like the surprise effect).

Thanks for playing it!
