Enjoyed the game, did not expect 2 levels in the game and a boss, was a lot of fun even if I did end up dying haha Left a follow and keep up the work! Your games starts at 10:08 about!

Thanks for playing. I'm not gonna lie, the bug where it didn't reset when you died was a little embarrassing. lol

And yeah there's nothing beyond the boss except for the ending cutscene.

Oh my goodness! Thank you for playing! I couldn't stop smiling the whole time and I had a good laugh when you made the remarks about the sphincter doors. Gotta love the gross/cute!

Thank you again!

Overall this is a pretty fun game. The art could really do with some improvement, and the story needs some fleshing out, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a good experience. I had a lot of fun and nearly didn't see the two rooms in the beginning. Just a little more polishing and this game will be a great experience! Good luck!

Thank you for the feedback! What in your opinion would improve the art? Our artist is brand new to digital/game art so any suggestions to improve in that area would be very welcome.

The art style seems to be pixelart in the intro cut-scene, but changes to digital art and that looks kinda weird. Also, with the color choices, it's hard to distinguish interactable objects from un-interactable ones. This might be my personal opinion but the player doesn't look like a hero, but its attack projectile definitely need to look more visible. Same goes for the enemy projectiles. The enemy designs are perfect, no complains. Just the level's artwork needs some improvement.

Thank you! I'm still learning how to do art, haha. Learning how to use GIMP and developing a style I am comfortable with. 

Yes! Anthony was telling me about the color choices I was going for and reminded me about which items are interactable and I spaced it. So thank you so much for pointing that out.

Haha, yes, the main character not looking like a hero was a personal choice. They are a vicious little summabitch. Something like a Kirby/Langolier cross.

I'm hoping if this gets enough eyes on it that I can go through and do an overhaul on it. I'm going in currently and fixing the projectiles to improve visibility and interactable objects to help progress through the game. 

I truly appreciate your time for playing and helping me out with critiques! I want to keep going and get better. :)
