This game rocks!! Thanks for share 😁

Hey this looks awesome, any plan for a mac build?


Unfortunately, the new Mac security requirements make it pretty hard to achieve for me. Sorry about that.

Both art and music are amazing. Gameplay is solid and definitely retro like tough. Can't wait to beat it!


I think all your followers got an email notification about this :)

Not likely. Some did but not that many. The number of views is pretty small.
