On my birthday back in 2016, Hiddow randomly approached me and asked me if I would like to test a game he was working on. Me already being a fan thanks to Catharsis took him up on that; I would then become a tester for Magnificent Stumble. Though I never got to really play the left path because the spotlight lagged my ancient computer at the time, and the intro stage didn't exist yet, I did play what was made on the right path. I've said before that Stumble inspired me to make this game, and it certainly did thanks to the second room of the right path and the way Hiddow designed it aesthetically.

I then decided to make the game a gift for Nader for some reason, hence the Funny clear screen. It was also intended to be an easy game but look at where that got me lol.

I focused a lot on the aesthetics of the game, which I am still proud of. But because I thought I was making easy needle the game ended up really suffering because I was too god damn good at my own games for my own good. Much of it is clunky, has little flow, is terribly balanced, and has a lot of various decisions I heavily disagree with by my current standards, especially the one save that I think requires a 1 frame. But it is still an important game to me because it really helped define a style that was unique to me, and I wouldn't have made Phonotransmitter without this initial step in my journey.

When all is said and done, I'd avoid this game and go straight to the infinitely better sequel, but I can't stop you I'm a review.

Amazing needle game all around. The platforming is masterfully done, combining platform jumps and water in many clever ways, building jumps that are, at the same time, creative and challenging, disposed in a really nice layout. The atmosphere it builds is equally as amazing: The calm, yet imposing song fits really well with the open, yet challenging nature of the game, and the death sound is so low that it sounds just like an echo in a very far away place, which is perfect for a needle game that takes place in the sky like this one.
Easily one of the best needle games of its difficulty range. Highly recommended to experienced needle players.

As a guy who doesn't enjoy very hard needle as often, this is one of my favorites. Production value/visuals/music wise it is pretty good, design wise you won't see any generic jump in this game. Definitely recommend to those who seek for a chill noodle session.

There's only a few bad saves in this one. Recommended.

Also there's a pretty huge skip in screen 3 if you can low cancel.

Really hard but fun and very unique game by Inf. The game in terms of needle design is actually top notch and while some of the saves are overly ridiculous (more like one specifically later in the game), it doesn't take away from the game as a whole. I like this game so much I even made my own game based around it (which ironically is terrible), so if that's not an indication to play it, I don't know what is. If you a very experienced needle player, this is a must play needle game.

Everything in this game was absolutely amazing. The first save of the last screen was by far the hardest in the entire game taking much longer than the rest. Be warned.
