@Pepperono Yes, still trying for Steam release first. We just need to wait for their Greenlight replacement system to kick off. After that I'll look at other outlets, including mobile. I built in support for gamepad, mouse/keyboard, and touch very early on so I hope to make it as widely available as possible.

Will the game be released elsewhere or will it be released via steam?

Thanks to everyone who supported us while Greenlight was active!

it would appeal to me more if the player character wasn't a white box. also seems a bit short for a game, even if you're only selling it for like 2 dollars. not bad at all, just needs some more effort before i would consider voting it up.

Nice to know. It looks like an interesting game with an interesting sountrack aligning with the setting of the game. Thanks for replying so quickly If I don't comment when it comes out please alert me!

Pepperono, I haven't set a price yet but since it is only five levels long I'm thinking it will be very inexpensive. The pacing and difficulty are tuned to five levels. If I add more it might go from a solid challenge to horribly frustrating since everything from level three and on are very difficult. If it gets enough interest I'd like to make it into a trilogy since I've got the story planned out for two more games of the same length. Thanks for your interest, let me know if you have any more questions.
