Wow, over 160,000 views! Thanks so much, Newgrounds!

I added five site medals to say thanks. And one of them is really, really hard. =)

FAQ:
1) the game does have an ending, but it's a bit of a puzzle to solve. hint: unlock all medals and 'fear less'. =)
2) the visual disorientation some people are getting is an optical illusion called the 'waterfall effect'. it's harmless, and should stop if you take a short break. wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_aftereffect
3) all randomness is structured into groups with delays, so the game is fair when you get at least double jump.
4) the fire/skull area is beatable without taking damage. it might scare you the first time, though. =)
5) I switched over to the newgrounds API after mochi died. Sorry to everyone who had problems playing on april 1st. It wasn't an april fools joke, promise!
6) atpalicis and I are working on a much larger project right now, so stay tuned!

A really nice and addicting concept, especially when you have to upgrade soo much to get all upgrades full. I love the graphic and the storyline, the whole layout of the menu is also very well made and thought out.

Although I can never understand why in some games people don't include all the medals/achievements that are available in-game.

thanks! we only get a certain number of "points" to allocate towards NG medals, but I also didn't want to flood peoples' profile pages with 27 medals from this one game. kongregate set the standard, though - I used the 3 badges they gave our game (and we had no control over), and added two others that I felt were appropriate. =)

YES THE GAME IS STILL HERE! I was really disappointed to see that the game was going to get taken down on March 31st, but since it's still here I guess there's nothing to be sad about. I really enjoyed the retro-like graphics. Unless the game is really going to get taken down NEXT YEAR! UNLESS IF IT WAS AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE! HAHA YOU GOT ME! 10/10!!!!!!!!!!!

innomin responds:

hey, where did you hear it was getting taken down? mochimedia is dead, but the game should still be working fine...

actually, since mochi seemed to be breaking the game at the preloader, I uploaded a new version (now with five newgrounds-exclusive medals). enjoy!

and sorry about the hiccup, mochi told us the game would still work... =( it wasn't an april fools joke, promise!

A really fun game! keep's up the interest without getting dull. More for the muscle-memory/instinctive gamer. I fucking love the art style and the music is beautiful ^^

glad you like it! I just added NG medals, and old saves _should_ automatically unlock them. =)

Completed it. Nice visuals, nice sounds... you heard that already many times. What I want to say is game would be better without Inception medal, it's just veeery unrespectful to player's time.
Although end is like reward, it could contain more content in order to feel more like reward. But it's not as important as what I said about Inception medal.

innomin responds:

hey, fellow Sequelitis fan! I would have to disagree, I think an infinite runner without some challenging goals is more disrespectful to a player's time. Inception is easier if you buy the fox ears and only try to get it at the start of a level, though, so try that!

I really tried to avoid grindy designs and make it all about the gameplay. But I guess I like my games challenging - the new optional medal Nightmare Game is so much worse. =)
