- First i think it would improve game play if the "Death Fence" below you didn't immediately kill you but instead if you fell through it and then hit the ground it would then kill you so even if you fell through it then you caught on to something you would still be alive.
The reason we made the death grid is to show the player how far they can fall before they will die. We could increase the maximum fall distance if it seems too harsh, but I think the grid serves a useful visual purpose. Also, there isn't always ground beneath you (eg. when you're climbing over a chasm). What is your other feedback?
