you can press f5 to enter fullscreen. controls are in the readme included with the game.
and yeah, maia is human haha, i didn't mean for that line to be taken literally--it's more of an anxiety thing!
it's been a while but if i remember right, i used that song for the secret little area you can reach at the end of the game.
and yeah that line is a callback to the first game :) good catch haha
i wanted to try it out, since there are older games i like that are made with it. the battle system is set up differently too (not that i usually make games with fighting... it just seemed cool)
thank you for the honest feedback! i think you're right in that i left too much up to the imagination... specifically with the reason maia wants to stay underwater--i decided not to specify the details because i thought the exact reasons aren't necessarily what matters? just her feelings about it. i left it up to people to fill in the blanks with whatever made sense to them based on what was presented (like in the trench) BUT it seems like that approach doesn't work for everyone...
the response i hear over and over with my games is that people want to see more, so i think i just need to work harder to make sure i put in enough by the end. i'll definitely keep this stuff in mind for the next one. thank you for playing, and for taking the time to write all this!
there's one alternate ending, but it basically just cuts the story short. i'll leave it up to you to find because i don't want to post spoilers in the comments so soon hehe. thanks for playing!
