Game heavily inspired by dopamine's games. I made this in a short amount of time, and kinda got tired of working on it, so that's why the ending is a bit strange. I like this game on reflection, which is not common for me, but time will tell if I truly like it or not.

A couple of random tid-bits (basically developer commentary, feel free to skip if this kind of stuff doesn't intrigue you at all):
There is a scrapped hard mode of this game that is probably accessible if you manage to save edit, though a few screens will be unchanged since it wasn't finished.

This game does have lore which I may talk about eventually. But I'm interested to see what people think of it first (though I'll probably never hear anything about that.)

Finding music for this game was really difficult. I really wanted to nail the dopamine aesthetic, especially in regards to the music. But I honestly don't know much stuff that sounds like something they would use. So I kind of relied on Spotify's song radio feature for the first song. The rest are just songs I like that have a somewhat dark atmosphere.

Interesting shortish needle game with a weird aesthetic. Visual changeups and effects in-game definitely lend itself towards a consistent theme, adding some nice ambiance without detracting from gameplay.

The needle was well-executed, lots of weird jumps and really nailed the 'jumps that look harder than they are' aspect. Definitely recommended if you're looking for a not too extensive moderate needle game.

Okay needle game. Features some fun and interesting needle. It's not too bad, but I really dislike platform jumping, it's too unreliant. Every single save room could really do with another save, they were way harder than the two save rooms.
Made using the newer fangame engine, so you can change settings, configuration and go fullscreen. Always a plus.

It also has a nice atmosphere. I really liked that. Wish there were more variety in each screen in that regard.

Incredible dopamine's style inspired needle game. The needle design is nothing close to dopamine at all though, but who said it's a bad thing? Game has its own dark atmosphere charme and interesting combination of platform and vine jumps.

Really fun needle game, had 2 saves that took me a little bit (the one save rooms).

Would recommend for sure!

Needle game with a sort of Catharsis-esque vibe to it. Pretty fun platforming and a consistent aesthetic throughout, but I wasn't a fan of the last two screens. Felt like they were just kind of tacked on and the game ended on a whimper instead of a bang.
