love this game!
e I just got a virus on my computer because of this game
VERY nice game, it could be cool if you added some more levels and possibly a new ability? 10/10

amazing, i think you should include an option to up/down the volume, the song is very high
Hi there! there's no volume slider right now, but you can turn off the music in the settings menu if needed
look at that soundtrack
Thank you for covering our game! It was really nice to hear thoughts and feedback from your diverse group. I hope you'll continue to follow the development of our game!
pro advice: when you reach the level with the red floor and two soul re-fillers dont walk left
oh wOw!!! I wish i could make a game like THAT
you can someday! i believe in you!
That is just amazing
dang I love this! what was it made in?
nice and easy game i love it
Fantastic game from a trio of fantastic folks! Great work!
cool game! 10/10
Bug Report: When transitioning from the first bench area to the level after that you can fall through the floor by holding left.
Spent more time speedrunning this and went from a 2:36:30 to a 2:16:57 deathless. This beat the previous record (set by me) by 19.33 seconds (using in game time). While my goal is a sub 2 minute, I'm starting to doubt if it's possible. I haven't discovered any gate clips even though I have discovered a ceiling clip which dev_dwarf says he's currently patching. This has brought me into the next level before without getting all the souls but it's only happened once by accident and I can't get to happen again. since I can't replicate I don't even know if it saves any time or not. I'm also messing around with the length of my soul to see if soul jumping (jump soul soul or space x x) is fast enough when compared to regular souling to be useful, or if the startup nullifies it. I will keep messing around with this prototype. I can't wait to run the real game when it comes out!
The screen turned black at about the 5th part. I tried refreshing the page but now it doesn't respond to anything and just tells me to press x to begin. I'm now stuck on the title screen.
I've been speedrunning this game and I've got my time down to a 2:36:30. I'm aiming for a sub 2 minute and will update when that happens
Great work! So juicy and well polished! Got pretty far but then I think when I died I moved to the left and got stuck outside the level and couldn't get back in. haha. Great work still! So good! :D
You can restart a level by pressing r
juicy af yo
This game is EPIC! The art, is small and gets it done in a good way. The gameplay is great, although you need to get used to the control of the soul jump. I really like this and hope that it will get made into a full game.
Made a video
Straight away, I've got to say that the webpage design is absolutely awesome!
Just realised it's dev_dwarf on the new games page haha. Yeh the game is also awesome, music, art, everything.
Edit: Ok, I just finished it, I love this, it's seriously something. Has serious pico-8 Celeste vibes with the amount of polish and style, I totally see a full game.
Lovely little game, would love to see a full game made with this mechanics!
I would like to have a bit more control over my strech, sometimes it was hard to know the direction I will travel in, and some extra control would help balance that I think.
Love the game! Keep up the good work :)
Excelente trabajo! Muy divertido
Bug Report: I found a ceiling clip where if you soul boost above a wall in a specific level with breakable floors, 3 jars, and 2 jars you'll end up trapped out of bounds. The wall is above the exit and the fixed camera hides the fact that there's no ceiling. boosting onto this ledge traps you up there. You can soul boost once more while your up there then you can't anymore. While the camera is stuck down in the playspace it will still follow your left and right movement. Hopefully this information is useful dev_dwarf.
thanks! I'll patch asap
Impressive game. I like so much of plot too.
This was really fun. I really enjoyed the unique gameplay using the soul to propel. It was fun and every stage was even more fun and challenging. Especially with the red things to give you another chance to use the soul another time to propel. Love the aesthetic and contrast using red.
Wow! This game is amazing! The controls feel great. You should add a speed run timer, this game looks really fun to speed run. :)
there is a speedrun timer! you can enable it in options. also there's public leaderboards on newgrounds!
Such an addictive game! Love the soul mechanic and music mixing
This is very cool
great hope to see more
