Thank you so much for this in depth reply and how complimentary you were about the game! I'm really happy to hear you enjoyed it, its a bit hard to get over the ol' imposter syndrome and reading things like this helps a lot.
In particular I'm glad you liked the lack of tutorial, I think I'd just got done playing Epic Mickey which tutorialised everything and I was so sick of it I decided to try make the game in a way that the player worked out what to do for themselves.
Thanks again! Glad you enjoyed it!
