THIS GAME IS SO GOOD. I'm not really one for surfing/air strafing games in, like, CS:S, so I was unsure if I'd like this (I guess those are different kinds of things, though!) BUT IT'S SO GOOD. Just feel so nice bouncing from wall to wall and completing lines and climbing up buildings to get the funny blue rocks and auugghgGHGH. The fact that you literally only have forward momentum, aiming, and jumping makes it so easy and enjoyable to dig into... AND THE WHITE LINES HELP SO MUCH WITH JUST, TRYING TO FIND WHERE THE ACTION'S AT... It's fun!!! It's fun as hell!!! I haven't finished it all the way (got like, 60% through I assume?), but certainly plan on doing so!!!
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS!!!
I'm on mac so I played this in a VM at like 20fps, which was probably not in line with your artistic vision, but I still had a lot of fun. Thanks so much for making this!
Good. damn. game. Really addicting.
Yeah, I didn't know that was possible until I released it and got some pretty interested screenshots in DMs and discord. Keeping it for now because it lets you do some pretty fun things ... ;)
You should add climbing as a feature and add climbable walls
the climbing could be more like rocketing upward at a high speed than climbing because normal climbing would probably be out of place in this type of game
Been following for a while now, so cool to see the itch page! Good luck the future releases :D
I LOVE THIS GAME I GOT IT IN THE BETA I LOVE IT AND ITS FINALLY RELEASING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
