I'm gonna say... entertaining. the reflective surfaces were nice and I could probably use a vr converter on this which would be fun (so I will keep it on my hard drive). But I also did not get the limited range thing.

Unfortunately I encountered a bug where the red spheres just wouldn't turn green after the one in the tutorial room.

I think it's the same issue where you need to get closer to activate it. It wasn't properly conveyed that the laser beam has a limited range, unlike how we expect lasers in real life to work, so it's more of a fail on my part :P 

Loved the art style and the characters. I think this has potential if you wish to expand it in the future :)

Developer

Thanks, considering to do that:)

Utterly fiendish (assuming I was completing puzzles in the way you'd intended and wasn't missing easier options) and thoroughly enjoyable. Great work.

Very minor suggestions:

  • Playing with a controller seems to be almost entirely fine, apart from the equivalent of the "E" and "V" keys which would hopefully be a quick win.
  • I was getting some quite bad screen tearing which detracted from an otherwise very attractive game so if a v-sync option could be provided then that would be excellent.

Thanks for playing! I'm sure that there are ways of solving the puzzles that I haven't thoroughly considered as well.

Am away from my build PC at the moment so will not be able to come up with a revised build so soon, but an option would be to run it with command line argument -vsync which is supposed to activate v-sync. I didn't realize it was easy to play using a controller (would've thought those aiming puzzles to be quite difficult) - will look to implement those options, thanks for the suggestions!

Somehow I can't get the laser gun to activate platforms. Am I supposed to shoot the laser at the red spheres?

Developer

Yes, but the laser beam's range is kind of limited so you might need to get closer
