Badnik96, Thanks for the feedback. I should have a playable demo coming out within the next couple of weeks and you can give the game a try.

The minimalistic graphic style might be a little bit too minimalistic. The gameplay seems like simple fun, and seems to have a good story to tell.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

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.
How much will it cost
