Short, relatively hard needle game, with typically 2 saves per screen. The needle style has mostly good movements at its core (with a sprinkling of uninteresting and awkward ones thrown in every once in a while) however the high level of precision means these movements become uncomfortable in practice. Due to this, parts of it have been unenjoyable, especially when some jumps feel like a luck grind. While the difficulty balance between different saves was mostly fine, difficulty balance between individual jumps within a save is often questionable, leading to a somewhat frustrating playing experience.

On the atmospheric front, it feels like there was genuine effort put in, but the end result feels half assed. The choices made for visuals are good and cohesive, however the problem is the choices that weren't made. Not only is there no additional element of production value beyond simple sprite/background swaps, but also saves, platforms, the kid/bow, and the death effect are all the default, which hurt the immersion especially on the first area. Song choices feel like they're a bit off from the visuals, trying to convey similar themes and feelings but ending up with minor but noticeable dissonance.

Overall wouldn't recommend unless you're already a high level needle player with decent tolerance for precision.

This is definitely Lucien's worst needle game, just skip this.
Play Intergalactic Emotional Breakdown / Exhibition instead.

Lucien's needle making skill is back to 2016, just low quality Kale copycat and just 16 pixel spam as always.
There is no difficulty balance, always a free save after hard one.
Screen 3 last save and screen 7 top left platform is just some / one jump make whole save increase 10x difficulty.
Of course, every save have intended hard choke jump.
