The game is great and the shadow jump mechanic was a real unique mechanic that almost feels like an exploit. I think this would make for a fantastic metroidvania if you ever wanted to go that route. Also, the art is absolutely amazing. Wonderful job!

Hi, thank you very much for the honest feedback and a video covering it, I never imagined that someone would go these kinds of lengths just to give feedback for a Jam game i really appreciate you taking the time to try the game, also you're like a natural at the game, it took at least more than 10 times to perform recall jump for others.

Really fun game, the dash/teleport mechanic was really interesting. I did struggle a bit with the teleport high jump though. The art was beautiful, and the music mysterious which really suited the game. Main feedback is maybe a few more checkpoints and eliminating blind jumps where you can. Great job overall!

I really like the art and the music, gameplay's really nice and fun as well. Controls could use some more work cause it took some time to get used to, and i wish there was a checkpoint after the zig zag part, but that's all my complaints! Really nice game!

Developer

Thanks for playing my game and sharing your opinion on it, about the control I'm planning to add customizable keybindings.

Wow where do I even start! I freaking loved this game. The ambience and environment were incredibly well put together. All the lighting and animations on the main character were amazing. I sucked at first performing the recall-high jump, but it felt so rewarding getting better at. Incredibly well done entry to the jam!
One suggestion I have though is to check your anchor points for all different types of resolutions or allow windowed mode. I am playing on an ultrawide monitor and couldn't return from menus. Cheers! 

Developer

Thx for the great feedback, I would like to know what resolution or aspect ratio you're using so i could look into the problem.

Loved the artstyle and music, shadow mechanic is good. Сamera could be a little smoother, returning to shadow position looks kinda sudden. Anyway, good job!

Wow! I loved the concept and the difficult, I spent a good 15 minutes trying to get the first secret and it was a great feeling when I finally did it!


You should definitely be proud of this entry!
