I love it!  This is an awesome little game, great work especially considering it was done in just a few days for a game jam!

I made a video highlighting this little gem right here!

Thanks Zaxtor for making a video about our game. It’s amazing to see people adore the things we make, especially enough to make a video about it and we’re glad you enjoyed it. Have a good one!
