the video trailer matches the itchio page. That's pretty clever. Looks great :)

very cute little game. I think the overworld theme really added a lot of charm and kept me going.
Hi there :) Your game looks really interesting & I want to play it, but I have some difficulty with the controls. I can move the character using WASD but I can't interact with options in the menu & objects in-game even when I try clicking with the mouse or pressing Enter/Space/Z. May I find out what are the controls for your game? Thank you! :)
p.s. I'm playing on Windows btw!
How do I talk to the vision-having guy again? There doesn't seem to be a button to talk.
Hi, I've been really knvested in a specific type of game I've wanted to make since I was a kid, and as I developed it further I started by decided I wanted 2d characters in a 3d world, but recently I've been realizing a fake 3d might be the best direction for it, because I want it to be cheap and optimized for a large numbers of players in real time action, real time action being difficult due to latency, etc. I want to do something like several layers of mode 7 paired with like a simple ray tracer like wolfenstein 3D to connect the various "levels of elevation" represented by mode 7, and make a simple but fun online platformer collectathon action game. Is there any chance anyone on here might wanna help me make an ultra optimized mmo platformer with character and charm spewing out the... ya' know?
Hi dev_dwarf! Ive been a big fan of your content and games for a while, but sadly I cant play alot of them because im on mac, I was wondering do you plan on doing a mac Port for this game?
I don't, but as the game is open source, someone could make one now! You could download gamemaker studio 2 and the project file and play it that way I think.
He should make a linux version and this game looks really cool.
you can do Linux version please
This is hands down the best game I've ever played on itch.io. Loved the design and boss fights!
Aw man it looks great but runs really slow on my computer, any fix?
sorry, the game is poorly optimized :(
my future games will have better performance
Did a video about your game and Sprite Stacking. Well done Dev Dwarf!!
My game crashed during the boss to the north after the goat skull, and now I can't progress because now there are trees on my way.
I really enjoyed this game, it was cute and I loved the pixel art for it. The different Pallets was also a really cool idea. Didn't get to finish but will certainly be going back to it.
aw man i actualy realy wanted to try this since i saw it on the gms2 disc
is there some problem thats preventing you from playing? id love to help
how do you delete save file? I want to play the game from the beggining but even when I download it again, the game starts from the last checkpoint. I'm confused, I deleted everything and downloaded again and still same thing happens.
in the options menu, scroll down to bottom (using s) and there will be an option to delete. You can also go to appdata/wobs and delete the folder. Sorry for the inconveniences!
What a wondrous little game this is! I didn't expect the depth and the many different mechanics and the dark story lurking in the background of the cute story about a resurrected skelly and his new found friends, but I appreciated every morsel of it!
A lovely little adventure experience, where each new skill you unlock assists you to progress through a different area of the map (which is twofold thanks to the "light" and "dark" versions). Throw in some nice challenging bosses to fight and you've got yourself a pretty awesome time!
I'll echo what some other people have said here and express my slight frustration at the camera, sometimes it was a bit of a chore trying to get it to behave, but it didn't take away from the overall aesthetic of the game.
Definitely recommended by me, anyone who loves old school adventure RPG games will get a kick out of this for sure!
Haven't played it yet, just wanted to say thanks for the Sprite Stacking tutorial I really need it. :)
No problem! Feel free to message me if you need help with that stuff.
Wow so cute and great aesthetic! Amazing look and levels and the witch hands were UwU and the forest floor eyes are on point creepy, and overall very impressed!
I got stuck cause I couldnt give the 50 flowers dood their flowers after I had enough. Agree camera is too swingy.
Overall I am charmed and would love to see more overall and more refinements!
I really like the aesthetic of the game! However, the constant wild camera movements were really disorienting. The camera was constantly breaking the 180-degree rule, making it easy to lose track of where I came from and where I was going. Still managed to make it through the whole game and had a good time. I appreciate all the hidden collectible pallets scattered about. Congrats on the fun little game!
How does the cloning thing work? I've spent about an hour on the final boss so far and I've only been able to accidently clone myself once. Looking at the videos of people who beat the game, they cloned somehow to beat the boss but I wasn't able to do it.
Super fun game! I just love pixel graphics, and adventure games. I would love a full game with this style, with RPG elements like shops, upgradables and other quests. I like the game for what it is though. The only thing I would suggest, is being able to know where your character is when behind trees, like maybe an overlay or an x-ray outline. Great game, looking forward to more projects!
Please check out the video and my channel: VladMan. Thank you!
it was a good game and camera angle were also very good and the animation were good
Quite the game if I do say so myself. The camera angles are interesting, to say the least. Short but sweet and definitely worth playing :)
cool game ;P
See this game in reddit . Great guy you are.
i feel like the camera could be inproved, i sometimes can't see where am i going.
OHH MAMA GOT STUCK! file:///home/ceibal/V%C3%ADdeos/lIANTHUS%20GLITC.webm
ok so i need some help i cant get past the the opening sceen can some one tell me what does what
WASD, and mouse to select things. All you need to do is click to enter the game!
i saw it on reddit loved the art style
hello !! is it okay if someone explains all the controls for me? I feel a little lost and like im missing something :,0
WASD, and mouse to select things. All you need to do is click to enter the game! Other controls will be explained in game.
I entered the game but can't interact with anything. My select button is j and I pressed it around everything in the starting area but nothing happened. Clicking also doesn't work.
I loved playing it! The general ambiance is really relaxing. The camera could be a bit slower when turning to show a new area, but this is definitively a good game.
this is so cool. Great job everyone who worked on it and those who inspired them. I really like the art
I played through the game and actually uploaded my gameplay to my channel! I honestly really loved this, it is definitely one of the favorites I've played in a while! The gameplay was unique, the art was gorgeous, the music was beautiful, and the characters were delightful. I had a few minor gripes with polish, but I would love to see a follow-up to this. Thank you for this, please, if you are able, make more!
Im in love with the sound design, amazing jo
This is really good. The parts I liked the most is the exploration and finding where I have to go next. Overall nice. Some things like the camera and the combat could be a little better in a next game. I made a video playing it here:
Y'all, I like so much about this game, the art, the sound design, the mood... but it gave me some very bad motion sickness with the camera that whips around every time you enter a new area. I'm not sensitive to motion sickness usually, but I was nauseous for hours after playing this :/
The game is great, especially the bosses! Congrats!
