I had issues with the download links. I ended up finding the in-browser version and played that. I tried my best to be patient and make it to the end. I couldn't. :P I was liking the vibe but that was too painfully slow.


Haha thank you for playing. You missed the great and unexpected ending :)


So I may come off as harsh but criticism is how you improve first let me say the good.

The music and music selection worked extremely well

The graphic are some of the most polished in this jam

Now I just have I main thing that can easily be fixed

Not make the barrel faster BUT the screen shorter it is NOT engaging if you press one button for 45 seconds straight with no choice make it 10 seconds MAX and you can accomplish what you were trying to do EASILY. On a second note I feel like with no choice why have this be a game and not a video? One tip is the unique feature of games is choice use it. Otherwise petty cool and zen-like experience. 

Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released:
