Just finished playing it, and I really like this nice little walking sim! Like most of the people here, I love the idea of being able to walk around liminal spaces! I like the unease I felt wandering through the 'levels', really captures the liminal space vibes. I don't know if it was intentional, but I like how gritty and run down the spaces are, specifically the bookstore. Almost like these places are no longer like the photos that they appeared in. All looking decaying and rotting away; a post-liminal space.

I don't know how I feel about the 'power' and the arm tool/thrusters though. It was fun in the beginning to swing from post to post; but after that level it seemed rather pointless to have it around. I never found an instance of needing to use the thrusters for anything, I just used them on the spheres. The power I felt was more of a way to mess about and shoot at those floating spheres; but other than that I felt it was relatively unnecessary. 

I messed around with the camera a bit more than I would've liked, intentional or not. It was a bit janky to hold it and rotate it about but it did capture some really cool wonky images though! Wish it was part of the tool bar, so its not accidentally dropped.

I didn't really mind the 4chan dialogue or even that I am a salamander. I don't see myself at all, unless I'm in the camera frame, so its a fun thing to have. it doesn't impact gameplay too much and I think it helps break the tension in some instances. There is a 'bit' of a story, but understandably it didn't really start/go anywhere. 

Overall, a wonderful little game with a bit of janky mechanics, but all in all a nice little break from the day! I enjoyed it alot, and the OST was great at bringing that moody atmosphere! :)

aww, i'm bummed out this was cancelled! i love the concept, been looking for a 'mall game' but i haven't thought of an exploration walking sim to be an option. I'd love to back this game if anything comes up again. the art is really cute, and has this great style to it i feel would serve the game well.
