Spoiler: It was a girl, an 8 bit girl, in that heavy old timey diving suit in the game whose entire purpose is to see numbers go up.
That is a sure way to retain our attention for another five seconds before we leave this dumbsterfire forever.

Would be nice to have some explanation of the controls or you know.. ANYTHING

This is another game that uses cute graphics to hide the challenging difficulty. The fact that you are going underwater is a nice twist on the flying higher and higher gimmick. This came out really well for a 48h gamejam entry.
