Hey, I got your game at that one bundle and I regret not playing it earlier, I really liked everything about it! I have a question, though.
I want to post on Youtube about your game, is that okay? I'm asking because I see "For educational use only" on the corner. What is that about?
Thanks!

Oh lol don't mind that, you're totally free to post this on youtube! Thanks for playing!

Really interesting concept, but frustrating to play because of how easy it is to walk off the edge of platforms when trying to time jumps. Gave up after a few levels of this

This thing ties my brain in some weird naval knot.
10/10 would bend the strip again

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeEEeEeEEEEEEEEEEEEeee

I saw this in a vid online before actually playing myself... glad I did myself that honor. Great game!

I see this is a Unity game, and I understand that Unity can do Linux builds. Is it easy or even feasible to provide a Linux build? Wine is always a slightly inferior alternative.

I can offer some help to make the build if you'd like.

I would also love a Linux port. I can't help, but I fully support this!

I was ready to write this game off as a relatively simple platformer with overly punishing failure states that didnt seem to fit its design, floaty jumping physics and uninspired level design, but oh boy was I off by a mile. The game has some really cool tricks up its sleeve to make this more like a puzzle platformer, where the slow and floaty physics actually end up being appreciated and its ideas and level design actually are the reason I want to finish a level to push on, just to see how they might have expanded this concept in the next level. I dont want to give everything away, but even just the way the levels turn around on itself, giving you a completely unique way to explore a level is an absolutely fantastic mechanic. Unique little Jump & Run gem. 4/5

Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it :)

Thank you for making the game :) Teaches me once more to never judge a book by its cover.

Increíble <3 

WOW It was super cool the idea behind it is really fresh and innovative

Using the mouse to view and navigate the mobius strip take a while to get used to, but otherwise I like the game. I'm actually stuck on the second time trial and I cannot figure out how to get to that one platform after using the key.

Hey! Thanks for checking it out :) That level is pretty tricky but you were on the right track. You can jump on the ceiling of the level in that stage, one of the ceilings is lower than usual!

(+1)

I thought it was very good, the only thing that frustrated me was when I died several times by hitting the sides of spikes on the final level. Really cool game!

(+1)

Thank you! I promise if I ever make a commercial game again I wont make it this hellish to beat :v)

Really innovative love it!

Adding time trial coins with a mechanic that forces you to wrestle with your camera is a recipie for disaster, and is really, really annoying to deal with.

(+1)

Solid stuff!

Thank you :)

(+1)

Thank you so much!!

Very creative app!

Great concept, great music!! GJ! ❤

I just checked out the game! What a unique twist on the 2d platformer. I had to get the word out! Bravo guys!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it :D

I very like your game ,the performance was just as good.

I'd love if you take a look at my games as well.

Wow. So impressed by the concept and how well it is pulled off. This game really blew my mind (and continues to). I don't even know how you'd begin to code something -- simple yet so complex. Grats dev, this game is rad.

Wow thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it :D

(+1)

This is really fun!  Love the way the music picks up during the eye portion.

i would like be able to play the demo with my gamepad, but i only can move and jump with it. I couldn't move the camera :(
btw, this looks awesome

Is this the group from The Evil Within? xD

Am I supposed to see something in the demo? I hear steps when moving and see the controls text, but nothing else?

EDIT: A screenshot of what I see

This is weird, I'll try working on a fix. It should display correctly in Chrome, if you have that. For now, I put up a downloadable demo, so you can grab that instead! :)

I'm using Chrome, on MacOS if that matters, and I'm seeing the same thing. Speaking of a demo, could you upload a demo for MacOS too?

And I'm using Firefox, on Arch Linux.
I too see the same thing. And this is in the browser.
