Hi everyone !

We have been working slowly during the last months, but we have a few things to show you !
First, level 1-3 is ready and polished, I uploaded a few screenshots in the gallery, here are 4 of them for you :

Level 1-3 Level 1-3

Level 1-3 Level 1-3

As you can see, this is more of an underground/underwater level.

Speaking of water, we also added an animated distorsion effect to it (as shown in the previous screenshots).

We also updated the jump feature to make it more precise, it is now pressure sensitive, and it allows us to create level design pattern that require more measurement skills. Here is a gif to show you how it works :


We are planning on changing the name of the game, but we still aren't sure what it will be, it has to be something that feels retro, and that also reminds of the speedrun mechanics that we are using.
We will keep you updated about that :-)

Looks good, but one thing that I found very frustrating is that if you are pushing the down key before you are on a platform it doesn't go into the slide. This made it really hard to determine if you were actually pressing the key in the split second that you had to push it.

I will see what I can do. Personally, I think it is weird to press the slide button before landing on a platform. I will do some tests to see if allowing the player to press the down arrow key before touching the ground makes the controls smoother.

Thanks :-)

Thanks :)

It's an HTML5 game, so basically, you don't need to download the game, you can play it in your web browser (as long as it supports HTML5 properly). So there will never be any required downloads.

When I said "release", I was talking about the demo version. I upload demo versions regularly to get feedbacks. Of course the game is far from being finished yet.
