Retro and fun

3:41.14 Speedrun

I got stuck in an infinite loop of going right?

Me too

Maybe go for lunch?

Very cool idea and game!

Really rad game! I really enjoyed it! Out of curiosity, why do the words bounce when you scroll up fast? It's very cool!

Such a cool idea!! Just kinda getting into game dev myself and I was wondering how you got the 3d visuals to look like they do?  Specifically the way the lighting looks is just so cool

Amazing game! But I found an glitch that if you are in a box and jump and go to right fast and then fall and then you are again above the box if you keep going right somehow because of the camera it will put you inside the wall. Here's the picture: https://i.imgur.com/Aga1dwv.pn

Very interesting game! I absolutely love this style of mystery and uncertainty in games. Very well put together and super unique. Sounds were great too. Awesome work!

Waiting for the sequel, where we manage to escape into 4D space.

Metamaze starts at 4:05.

Very neat. Interesting mechanics along with the story. Would love to see the idea fleshed out more.

I’d tell you if I knew, it just happens. Very nice game 9/10 loved the color pallet aesthetics :)

This is such a cool concept and well executed, well done!

you get what you get and you dont throw a stuck forever in a third dimensional fit

no lie, after Recording the ending 

stuck with me and I thought about how terrible it would be to be in that situation.

An incredibly refreshing Meta-Postmodern game that hits me on a very deep level <3 <3 <3

Very good, at first I didn't give anything for the game, but in the end i was on the edge of my seat. I liked the ideia of control two dimensions at once and the way you built up the tension.

Fantastic as usual! 

Here's a playthrough of of the game:


Thank you!!

Loved this! It's a really nice switch up on the player and the narration/questions being posed really did add that tinge of horror.

Wow, this is good. The mechanics felt nice, it felt unnatural at first to control two dimensions at once but it didn't take long until it felt second nature. Fun! I'm really fond of the touch of psychological horror. If I close my eyes and place myself in the character's shoes, I really am horrified.


Well done!

Fun idea! Sound design is great as always :D and I liked the narration. Think the concept could've used a bit more exploring as the game comes off a bit empty once you get the hang of moving. A nicely done short game though!

Lovely short game!

I'm from the fifth dimension - I can confirm that life over there is just as flat and boring as it is in your dimension.

A really good game, I especially love the sound design, the only thing that I'd change is the fact that text boxes can appear when you're in mid-air, which can get quite annoying. But overall, a great game for a game jam!

I thought that was intentional and funny. Like, really, here? lol

This game concept is interesting and fun to play! Good job.
