Pretty fun, and nice looking!
I feel like the running speed and the rotational acceleration aren't properly linked to each other.

Fun game! Ran perfectly fine on Linux for me (ubuntu 16.04)

sorry the linux version does not run for me 

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  RtApiAlsa::probeDeviceOpen: pcm device (hw:0,3) won't open for input.

Can't open it on windows only crashes


Thanks for reporting the issue. Which version of Windows are you using? I just tried on Windows 10 and, well, it doesn't exactly crash, but it seems to be stuck forever on the splash screen. Hopefully those are two different symptoms for the same issue, I will tell you once I fix the one I can reproduce.


I've rebuilt the game from a Windows machine, that fixed the splash bug for me. Did it dix the crash bug for you as well?

Here is the error

Hope you can fix it !
