Official Bug/Issue Thread

Looks very cool! But I could really use an "invert" setting for the camera :)

Thanks, a lot of people are asking for this! I will be putting it in soon.

Just dropped a new build. Added option to invert the camera y axis in the pause menu. :)

quick response! Will give it another try later :)

- Sometimes you will slide down inclines when standing still, especially with stairs.

- Trying to run while still controlling the camera is awkward with the current button layout. The placement of the jump and run buttons also feels a bit strange. Configurable controls would be appreciated.

- The camera can get quite finnicky when it catches on ceilings or other terrain.

- Frame rate can get quite choppy.

- The Drones' area of visibility is quite unclear; if possible it would be nice to have an indicator of where they can see you, such as a red spotlight or something, or to modify the area of sight so that it's less based on mere proximity since they'll often "spot" you even though they're looking in the opposite direction. Their gunfire is also so inaccurate that they don't feel all that dangerous. They can also get stuck firing at you while you are behind cover leaving them completely unable to damage you while you remain still.

- "Resuce" typo in the ending text

I hope this doesn't come off as prodding or whiny; these are just the observations I made while playing, and I still had a great time regardless. Nothing noted here detracted enough that I wasn't still enraptured with the visuals and pacing of the game. I commend you wholeheartedly for producing such a compelling experience in so little time!

Thanks for the interesting game. I encountered a crash bug where I was standing in the corner of a building, rotated the camera to look at myself so the camera was actually inside my characters head, then pressed ESC key to bring up the menu. Game stalled out at that point.
