Ok so, just by looking at the videos:

- Why she moves that much ? Like she is twitching or something ... why is she doing that it's kinda freaky. Also the movement in the "go to" jumping animation needs to be more fluid , it doesn't look like she moves it's more like his body just change of position when you jump.

Alright your opinion. i can increase jumping height or movement speed to counter this, besides i'm using reverse time alot in video's hence why character shift position's ( not included in demo ), anyway thanks for the feedback.

I've tried demo. In fact - it's sh*tty and boring. But screenshots looks promising so I hope you will realise 2nd demo soon with more thing to do than just walking.

Wow, I think you are judging too quick, you can interact with many things with your mouse and find secrets, try going left in the beginning. Look at your mouse cursors orb change colour. To call this a walking sim is just stupid, you need to understand the game in order to play properly. There wont be another demo, only full ver.

Yeah, it's said there is no any sign of mechanic as you mentioned. I have got more than 30 years of experience in games but I was not able to discover it.

What kind of experience? You should read the controls again and play again, if you cant figure out how to interact with objects i can help

"What kind of experience? " - I am playing games since 1986 and never saw game with unexplained like this one. " you can interact with many things with your mouse and find secrets" - sure, but it's sad there is no any clue or even small tip about it. I had to collect 8 crystals so I was looking crystals and nothing else. My advice - give to player more knowledge at very beginning.

Alright, thought you were a dev or something. There is a clue / tip about it in the controls, but i could have made a more clear tutorial, but it is there right when you get in the game to the left. I'll be sure to have better tutorials for mechanics, thanks for feedback
