Thank you for playing my game! For a little insight on this game, it was mostly a project with no real plan, I mostly just came up with ideas on the run, which then lead to the dream theme. I initially had planned to think of more gimmicks to use, but struggling to come up with any good ones it turned out to mostly be needle. I'm not really terribly proud of it, even though the environments and overall mood turned out pretty good in contrast. I'm definitely going to plan out my next game better to ensure it's more in line gameplay wise to what I want.

Quite surreal, very unnerving at times, I do like how it makes me feel.
Not too hard though.

An easy good rating from me since I am naturally inclined to like non-linear, dreamlike and surreal experiences, especially since the atmosphere is so well constructed and the soundtrack kicks butt all the way to the East. Exceptional visuals and sounds, nightmarish when it needs to. Please do mind that you require all items to advance into the story, and some of them are hidden.

Going "with ideas on the run" sometimes brings better results than planning them ahead. I do recommend it. Now bring me a longer, full-scaled experience!

Very cute. I would love another game like this with added difficulty, but designing stuff outside of your skill level typically isn’t a good idea. Very good game and atmosphere and I’m looking forward to more games from this creator.

Great beginner game.

Cleared again for FSR.

Reminded me of an easier Abducted. It has a similar atmosphere and simple platforming that requires you collect orbs throughout the game to get to the ending. They aren't overly difficult to find, but can be confusing as to which ones you're missing. When I made it to the last area I had missed 1 that I had to go back and find. Other than that, pretty good game.

Amazing atmospheric game, not a fan of the early but it quickly becomes really good. It also took me longer than what I expected, 30 min which is quite good for a game as easy as this one.
The only con would be that plateforming is pretty basic. I'm not saying that it's uniteresting or that it's never get good, but some better thought room for the needle part would certainly make it more interesting. I don't think it necessary needs to be more challenging, but maybe more rewardful when you collect an item because most of them are just in your way
it remind me the main problem of mario odyssey (at least for me), there is a bunch of stuff to collect but you don't feel satisfied when you do so
I'm also amazed by how quick you made it after I am here so keep up the good work, I'll look forward your next work.
