Beautiful little indie game. I really dug this one

I think the shooting mechanics need extra work; I felt there wasn't enough control over how high the player can jump, and so it was really difficult to aim my shots. I also felt that 45 degrees up/down was way too much of an angle to actually shoot with. The shotgun was a cool addition. Reducing the delay before the shotgun fires would help a lot, because the shotgun is already short-ranged and slow. It doesn't need another handicap. Enemies don't telegraph their attacks until the second area, so it's really hard to visually keep track of how close an enemy is to firing back at the player. The first boss had some projectiles that would spawn in on top of the player with no warning. On the subject of bosses: The second boss has a laser that follows the player... I think it's fine to have just a millisecond of telegraph (which is what you do), however the state of the boss doesn't change once it is firing this laser. Thus, I feel the player needs to be directly told precisely how to deal with this new boss-state. Learning boss patterns by memory is common, but the player has to be able to learn what the pattern actually is.
In all, a captivating visual art-style and it immediately intrigues the player into exploring this game. With some more explicit telegraphing to the player on what the objectives are and how exactly to complete them, I think this could be a super challenging title in a great way.
Gave your game a playthrough; looks really cool and reminds me of the storytelling in Davey Wreden's Beginner's Guide, so I think you're doing things really well. However, I got stuck on the invisible platforms bit. Unreal threw a bug message about rendering lighting, so I'm not sure if it's intentional but on the part that says, "Now you're really lost," I uh... got really lost. If you give that part a bit of reworking I'll give it another go!
Very cool little game. Got all of the endings ;) Very small game, could use more depth, but it remains very cohesive. The artstyle, music, and general tone is coherent and permeates every aspect of this game. The poems for each ending are fun which, again, contribute to that similar tone. Easy 7/10
Interesting little game, very cool art direction. The platforming felt pretty decent to use, and the main concept was unique and felt polished. However, while a cool concept, it's a very unpolished game and there's not much depth to the mechanic. Extra game features don't make use of the main mechanic very well and it leads to a daisy-chain of unrelated button mashing. The windmill mechanic is also horrible. Wall-jumping was nigh impossible to use, and platforms we obscured by the background. Respawn points were mediocrely placed. The main teleporting mechanic was consistent. The slow motion mechanic was never useful. Solid 5/10. Not bad at all
