    I’d like to second everything that Justin said above. I know this might sound like a bit much, but I think this might go down as my favourite game of all time. Just true bare-bone puzzles, simple rules, yet very complex. Took me 23 hours to beat and I loved ever thought-provoking minute of it. I don’t know exactly what it was, but I just enjoyed this game so much.

    It’s what got me to beat the average on Humble Bundle 8, like Justin said. I bought one for myself and one for my brother. Unfortunately though, I sent all of my money to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I came to your site hoping to see a place I could donate some money to you directly. I’d buy an extra copy on Steam, but it’d be great if I could just throw some cash directly at you without Steam taking a chunk of it. Do you have any plans to put a little tip box on your site, or anything like that? Maybe you already have one and I just can’t find it?

  2. Kind of you to say, anon. There’s a donate button on the top of every page, if you want to send some dollars my way :)

    This game is pure perfection: challenging, elegant, immersive, atmospheric, mind-expanding. Most treasured app on my ipad. It has not gotten nearly the level of attention it deserves. I’m walking through it now a second time with my 6-yr old daughter and am amazed at how quickly she is adapting to the three-dimensional thinking, thanks to the natural and intuitive interface. Congratulations and may your creative energies never run dry.

    took me a day or two, but i was able to get through everything and was greatly satisfied by the challenges and thinking required to get through them.

    one thing that really bothered me though is that you implement that editor for use in two of the puzzles but you don’t provide one for us to use!

    some kind of level editor would establish this game as a legacy, i feel, and allow a loyal community to grow around it and throw support your way. at the very least it would definitely guarantee my playing the game indefinitely and my support

    i’m very much so hoping you have something planned for this, and hopefully with these concepts because everything works so well, here.

    Still an awesome game. But most of my friends only play games on tablets or phones. Half of those use android and are missing out.

  7. “Half of those use android and are missing out.”
    Android isn’t a single platform, it’s a whole family of phones. It’s a full time job to get it working on those devices, and a part-time job to keep it working. I ain’t got time for that shit – windows/osx/linux/iOS are enough of a strain.

    I was playing this half the day, it’s super awesome. I saw it because it was the most highly rated puzzle game on jayisgames. Free publicity for you :D

    Still looking for that OST, it’s incredible.

    Could you make it a folder in the steam release? Or make it available for purchase? I missed the humble bundle :(

    What about this for Switch? With the original graphics and music. I mean, it’s only one of the best puzzle games ever made, so…

    The iOS version doesn’t work on iOS 11. Any plans to update it, please?

  16. It’s not an easy task to update, alas. A lot of things have changed with iphone and the game engine I used since I last made a build, so a lot of things are broken right now.
