Wow, thank you for the very in-depth review of our game! We acknowledge that there are many small issues (and a few less minor issues) that we need to fix, and several things were discovered after we released the game for the jam. We have every intention to fix all the issues that have been pointed out, and add quite a bit more content for the player to consume. There will be more environments, creatures, and things to do overall in the game. New mechanics, and minigames to break up the gameplay.
We started working on the game after the jam started, and the levels were designed within only 2 days. We had little time to fully-test everything, and knowing the level design, we didn't end up with as much of an issue of leap-of-faith because we knew what was coming up. That was a miss on our part.
Thank you again for playing, and for taking the time to write up a detailed review.
