I have this hunch that this would work out better at a width of 20 tiles, rather than 16. I mean, it's not like it was difficult to avoid enemies, but it's just a hunch.

Unless the game was actually meant to be 20 tiles wide, but it shrunk to fit my screen...

One of the known issues in this game is that it doesn't zoom as you change screen resolution: a player with an ultrawide screen would have a huge advantage over a potato player. Since it's not a competitive game I've had this as a back-of-the-queue issue, but now that you've mentioned it I'll see if I can't push it up my todo list :)

So, just as a followup on this: after some trial-and-error with STI to get the scaling figured out, I finally managed to get it so the number of tiles onscreen would be locked and... it looks like crap. The art assets simply don't scale up well, even at even increments. If I had gone for a more pixelated look I imagine it'd be fine, but the sketchy style ends up turning into a blurry mess when you go above native resolution.

So, it sucks, but I'm making the call to let the camera show more than intended if you have a higher-res monitor. Definitely something for me to keep in mind next game jam though!

Creepy sounds and nice art. I managed to escape!

I like the art style and ambient sounds, which set the mood really well. The dash mechanic is also cool.

Nice little game! I liked the background music and the day/night cycle mehanic.

While playing, I encountered below error. I had a look at the code and it seems to be due to the if and else conditions ignoring equality. Screenshot below.

Ah, I see the issue. Pushing up a fix, thank you!
