To be honest... I almost misread it as "Run to the bacon!" when I first saw it. :>

Ok everyone who read it as bacon rise your hand .o/

Gameplay looks beautiful and swift, you're almost at the AAA level and you probably know it. I voted for Greenlight and I hope everyone else does as well.

Little things to improve on are run animation/movement syncing (the character seems to do lighter walk/jog before running but actual movement speed is constant from the start?) and perhaps the game world would need a bit more props (visually) although the large sand areas also serve a purpose because of you unique gameplay aspect :)

Thanks for the input shadowflar3! Yes, the sand as one of the main gameplay aspects is held quite clean on purpose for now. We try to compensate with details in other areas of the map and with sound. Other than that this is one aspect of our look and our game. Bigger sand areas. But we heard your comment.


And yep, you're absolutely right. Animation is still the area we're most fighting with. It's very hard. Keep your fingers crossed.
