New version with improved / less slidy controls now live.

So I started the game in the background and got distracted by other things and then 2 hours later I remembered this game was running, so the audio is definitely very nice!

OK played it now. Not exactly sure about the message/story but the feeling through change of mechanics and music I feel very well so. Animations seem off at times and missing at times (no get up anim but its ok) and dragging float/jump physics are annoying (but matter of taste) but at least the checkpoints are kind :D

Didn't know CW for censored strong language is a thing, interesting to think about though.

Depressing that the game restarts at the end. I'm gonna assume it's by accident :D

Thank you for your time in playing the game and the kind comments. We really appreciate that you took something out of the experience, and thanks to your feedback and others, we have improved the controls.

The CW was from an earlier version, we removed it now.

We might make the ending not restart automatically too.
