I built Narcissus because I wanted to make a game that was easier to play together, but still possible to complete when alone. I hope you enjoy playing and let me know what you think below, I love feedback, positive and negative!

Really, one of the best games I've ever played here. Still fresh as it was the day I first played it. Great soundtrack, atmosphere and challenge. Even if it was just a flick on the narcissus myth, it still kinda makes me reflect on things without even needing to get all pretentious like some games. Just nice. A real hidden gem.

I genuinely appreciate this feedback. A lot. Finding myself laughing though about how off I was with the colour palette for this one, as well as the UI design being shoddy (Probably explains hidden gem status). I've released an App of the game with those two things fixed as well as a bunch more levels, and since that's run its course (Was launched in February) I'll probably release a remastered version of this game on here when I launch the android version. Thanks again for your feedback.

Magnifico! It was not difficult at all, but I am pretty sure this is one of these games where art meets entertainment. I thought it would be one of these crappy cliché games where you control two characters with the directional buttons. And the soundtrack is one of the bests I've ever heard.

Great game but kinda difficult.

That's awesome! Challenging without being frustrating. The music is great and the concept of controlling two characters is finally put in a not-annoying form. Only thing I have to mention negatively: these make-you-jump-higher panels let me sometimes jump without me pushing any buttons - is that intended? Or vice versa: They do not enlarge my jump, don't know if that is my keyboard or a small bug.
That'll be it, I really like that one :)

the reason it's four stars is because in the game theres a bug where as if you pause you dont get a pause menu but when you go back into the game by pressing p again the pause menu comes back up blocking the screen, thus either blocking the view or allowing no menu access while playing. you can fix this by dieing though if you press p and then p again it still results in the same thing so the only way to go back to the menu is restarting the page.

Hey Shadow, a previous commenter has mentioned this - I'm looking at how to fix this issue now, so hopefully you'll come back and give it another try ^^
