Hello, thank you for warning us. We'll take a look and prevent download for linux until we find the issue.


Short and sweet, I hope we'll see more soon. Congratulations on getting first place in the Unity 2D Challenge. :)


thank you for your play throught !


Awesome start here! My only real complaint is that the movement was also tied to the dialogue, so I ended up skipping some. But I really enjoyed the banter, artwork and physics! Well done!


Thank you very much for that funny review, we'll make sure to correct those issues in the next release
