Tell me what you like and don't like about this game.

Awesome work! I love everything about it XD... Only critique, the UI could be friendlier.


Thanks! The UI is a work in progress and not even close to the final version :)

Hey man, I'm writing an article about indie games currently in development for The Loot Gaming and I'm planing to include the superfluous sand, can you give me an email so I can send you a few questions about the project? To include in the article.

Developer or if want my personal email DM on twitter at @The_Superfluous 

uh, it says theres a Trojan Horse virus so uh yeah


LOL there isn't. Game maker exe builds sometimes give false positives. I can upload an installer version that should pass all virus checks.

That would be nice, thanks.


Ok, I'll put out an update in a few minutes. I've added a couple things too.


Fixed. The new update is out.

Cool, thanks.

Good work !

Only one problem : i'm french so the W,A,S,D configuration is a bit complicated, can you add the Z,Q,S,D configuration please ?


Yeah I probably could. I didn't plan on create custom key set up for awhile. I could probably hack together a text file you could edit that could fit your needs.

Yes it would be good, thanks ;)


OK, changes are made give me a a few minutes to build and upload.

Thanks, i will test it, and if you want help to translate it to french, im here ;)

Absolutely love the game! Almost reached the ending. Id suggest adding towns and more materials. I really can't describe how much I love this game.


Thank you! Yes I plan on adding much much more. Towns might be the next thing I add. I am currently working on a dev tool to easily create towns and dungeons.

Dear Voidpixels,

This game is fantastic, and it has alot of potential.  I am always waiting for the new and exciting updates. I was just wonder, as a future game developer,  how did you start coding on Gamemaker studio 2? Or how did you learn?   -  Ch4rry



To be honest I am still using Game Maker Studio 1.4. I am not a fan of the interface in 2. I'll switch one of these days.

I started programming in Game Maker probably 5 years ago. I did some games in java a few years before that with Slick2D. I learned at first with a few videos on YouTube creating some small games. The first game I made was a Flappy bird clone with lots of different birds and costumes. Anything I couldn't figure out I Googled.

Googling is %90 of programming. The other %10 is coffee. :)

Thank you so much, it really does mean alot.
