UPDATE 1: You are not meant to physically reach and push the first bridge switch, you're meant to get the gun and shoot it instead! That part is poorly designed, my bad!

UPDATE 2: For those asking about the lovely music (particularly the theme tune), it was composed by Calamaistr. Check out his page, or specifically the link below, which acts as the foundation for the melody heard on the title screen:

Wilt: Exordium is a prologue to a longer adventure. This game is set in a dream of the protagonist, Jon. Take control of Jon and explore his dark dreams.

This is leading up to something much bigger. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated and may influence the project - so please leave a review telling us what you like and what you don't!

It's short, we know. The main game (currently titled Wilt: Last Blossom) is well into development and is at least ten times longer and more expansive. It will also have a proper story which will make sense of some otherwise odd pieces of dialogue in this dream sequence. Stay tuned!

Move with the arrow keys. Jump with A. Perform attacks (eventually) with S.

I've never felt there was a more appropriate time to use the word but I felt this game was pretentious. From the title to the dialog, it screamed "I have deeper meaning, see? Aren't I something to ponder?"
Good gameplay. I felt the boss battle went on a bit long. I like 'endurance' trials but this boss only had two phases and both were easily managed. Because of this, having to go through only the same two phases almost five times felt repetitive.
Either cut down on the battle time or give the boss another phase, another attack pattern that can at least spice things up a little bit.
Based on the demo, its a well put together game but not one that begs me to play further.

Great game! Love the Mega Man-like gameplay and boss battles and the Contra controls. Can't wait for the next one.

Controls are terrible. Double jump doesn't get me out.

This game has basically taught me that grenades will solve all of life's problems. Little Girl there should focus on getting herself some grenades instead of being creepy.

8-bit style is very nice, and the controls are pretty smooth, except when you're in the air. Kinda rocket all over the place. Only reason I took off half a star there.

I love that you can point your gun without moving. Makes adjusting your aim so much easier than most other shooters. Very well done, very creative, and just a little creepy. Jon there looks like he's going necrotic or something.

Interesting thing about the boss: If you lob the grenades straight up so they land on his head, the mini-ghosts he spawns will die instantly and he moves straight into his next speed phase. Found this out by accident. You may want to adjust it so the ghosts spawn in a more spread out fashion.

Also, I have no idea why the line "Jon found a GUN" cracks me up so much.
