wow, very cool game! I'm not sure if I cheated by figuring out a wall jump mechanic, but I couldn't figure out how else to get through most of the game. very, very cool. nicely done! would play again.


Thanks! No no, wall jumping is totally how you're supposed to get through it, we just didn't signpost it *at all*!


The visuals and general production value are really great. I had a hard time after the second terminal and died a lot but I think this is supposed to be a tough one and I'm also generally bad at this kind of game. Sometimes I felt it was easier when I stay away from the enemies and try to shoot them while they are off screen, which is a bit weird. But all in all great entry. Had no bugs.


Super tight in all directions! I played earlier this week and got beat down hard. Coming back and playing on easy was a much better experience, at least for someone without much true-gamer-points like myself.  Massive ups yall. 

Also i'll just mention a wee bug, the press e to activate UI didnt dissapear after the third computer terminal. 


Gorgeous! Love the style. I had heard that the game was extremely difficult before playing so I chose "Walk int he park".  Thank you for adding easier difficulties!


Well, I might have to come back  and prove my merit and beat this, but initial impressions are super impressed. Great sense of environment. Love the parallax in the background. Great sounds and models. Really good mood. 


999 Remain!

Loved the art and animation of the game. Also liked the enemy behaviour, pretty fun when they dash in your direction. And i definetly hoisted myself, more than once.


pretty cool!

This game is amazing! It feels really polished for a game jam game :P. The one problem I have is that you have to wait for the screen to follow you, which can be frustrating. Other than that, This game is absolutely stunning :)


Thanks! We've actually disabled the auto-scroll stuff in the latest release thanks to feedback like yours. Hopefully it's less frustrating now. :)
