This was a great game, only thing that disappointed me was the short length. The controls were a bit awkward, however I got used to them eventually. Only thing that bugged me were the ball causing the elevators to get stuck and move slowly if you're touching an edge.

I loved the atmosphere. The art was nice and the writing on the walls was a great touch. Discovering all the messages made exploring more enjoyable and they were a pretty powerful way of telling the story. The spooky audio worked well too.

I liked how we got a glimpse of the surface and then it made us drop deep into the ground. It was both cruel and brilliant. A great way to break up the pacing and add some interest to the story and visuals.

The darkness worked well. It made simple puzzles seem much harder than they were.

I think you've got a good mechanics, good pacing and a good environment/story in this, if you make it longer this is going to be awesome!

an excellent platformer, realistic physics

rarely in a video game do i find myself in the role of a sentient ball. it was actually very fun. the physics in the game make sense. you have no arms or legs, you can't exactly jump, you have to bounce. for that you need momentum. a very simple concept but it actually made this game very unique. the atmosphere of the game was spot on, and it was part of what made it so enjoyable, and the way the story gets slowly revealed with each level. it was a tad short, and some levels were way easier than others, but overall, a very good game. I will look forward to part 2.

Well thought out and implemented

Thought it was fantastic. Cant wait for the next one. Well paced and thought out.
The only thing I found was that if i fell down somewhere, it was much easier just to press the 'restart level' than to wait for the lift (elevator for those Americans among you). Not really a flaw, but it lost some continuity. Also, sometimes you (the ball) could cause the lifts to stick if you rubbed up against them but no big problem. I liked the way the instructions were introduced too. simplistic.
