How does your game fit the theme?
"Take a deep breath" is the core gameplay mechanic of the game. You can litterally use your breath as a jetpack to climb the mountain, activate levers, swallow and spit objects to solve puzzles along the way.

I enjoyed playing this game. Interesting new mechanic and puzzles. However, in the first level where you can eat the worms, I found it odd that the worms were hidden on the left. It felt unnecessary. Aside from that, the puzzles were well-designed, and I appreciated the option to do the extra fruit challenge. The storytelling was also compelling, and the visuals were clear, colorful, and cute. Overall, good job on this game!

Why did puffinick have to be born without wings, life is cruel😔

Cute game. I like how the story bits are given in each level instead of giving all the story in the beginning or majority of the story in the beginning & the rest in the end. The levels are well thought out & are easy as well. (which is good imo)

Completed the game. The ending is a bit deep if you think about it and reflect it with real life.

Game definitely was made with a lot of love & care.

Well done man, Well done.

wow, really cool level design and use of the theme! Level 10 was awesome! I wish there were more levels where you could turn so big! Nice story too!

I enjoy the creativity of the game, I like that the size of the player changes when you breathe in and that the platforms actually collide when you are bigger. It is cute game. The little puzzles the player solves is fun, definitely a peaceful game. I do have the concern that the player does get stuck on the walls touched or we walk.

Really an amazing game. I liked every moment of it. Nice narrative, nice voice over and story, Very good level design and mechanics. I had only a one minor issue (the character sometime gets stuck in walk when she touches the walls). Brilliant and it is a proper game. I think it deserves the podium.

I seem to be unable to start the game for some reason. I get to the start menu, but can’t click on anything or move around with the keyboard

Do you mean in the title screen? You need to click on the 1st level button in the bottom left. Can you tell me if it works? Thanks! :)

They’re all greyed out, but when I launch it in Firefox instead of Chrome it seems to work :) Getting this in the console, https://i.imgur.com/M4ROnWB.png

Got it, thanks! So for now use Chrome and let me know what you think, thank you! :)

I really enjoyed it, fits the theme well! Difficulty was just right, not frustratingly hard or too easy. The berries were a nice extra challenge. The story was cute too :)
