Where it all began... <3

Delightful and polished/clever platformer (especially considering it was made during a game jam!). Also great sounds and music. Had some trouble seeing where the platforms were (occasionally seemed to blend in a little with the background, but not a big deal).
Really looking forward to seeing this world expanded on :))!

YaenGames responds:

Thanks so much for the kind rating, Noa :)
We're doing our best to address the platform visibility thing in the upcoming version. Thank you for the feedback!

pretty nice game with cool graphics and effects i especially like the song

RiverForgeGames responds:

Thanks! I like the song too, Yaen made it special for the game. :)

Pretty good game! The only problem is that the player feels slippery, even with the glitch pulse.

YaenGames responds:

Thank you for the feedback! We'll see what we can do for future versions of the game!
