So i played the demo and i was really amazed! This game is really fun and also addicting!

I played the demo for nearly an hour before i had enough of the two playable levels, and i just did it for so long because i wanted to break my personal best time!

The graphics are pretty to look at, the main character kinda reminds me of Korra, but that doesn't mean it's bad!

The sound is also nice to listen to, although it gets kinda repetitive after an hour ^^.

All in all a very well made demo and i can't wait to see more of this beautiful and well-crafted game!

Keep up the good work ;)

Hi. I watched your video. Thanks for the good feedback. I'm sorry you had trouble with the camera, but I'm glad you still thinks it's a cool game :)

For this demo we focused on the gamepad controls, but we know that some people don't have on or prefer playing with mouse and keyboard. We have learned a lot from this demo and we have a lot of new ideas that we hope to show more of soon.

I've played the new demo, seems like a perfect speedrunning game! It flows very well, nice controls, with only occasional moments where the camera isn't perfectly located.

Here's me playing the game on an i5 machine, 8Gb RAM and GeForce GTX 970 gfx: Youtube.com

The only obvious graphical glitch I saw was at the end of the second level, where some of the background flickered white as the camera swung round.

I've tried this game already (here in Skövde) and I really wan't to get my hands on this. The controls were great and it look very nice, specially for a unity game. Keep up the good work and I hope it will be a success! ;)
