I played this for quite a bit trying to really get tor grips with the climb mechanic. It was a little tricky at first but once you get the hang it, you start to get a little further. I found myself in the pit of despair most of the play time though and found myself having to climb out of it a lot. I liked the metaphor in line with the theme.
The art style was really cute but the star of the show for me was the sound design. I loved the music and when I was really getting further up it felt like swinging the character to the beat was the real key to getting where I needed to go.
I wasn't able to finish though but it's a really cool concept.
