I really enjoyed it. There are some places where you can really tell there was a limited budget, especially in the animations, but all the things you want a platformer to be good at, it does extremely well.

Fantastic game. First world is not the BEST, but Worlds 2 and 3 are incredible.

I started it not long ago but I just wasn't feeling the first world at all. A lot of little things about gameplay and exploration were annoying and the overall direction seemed tedious.

Exactly this but I stuck with it and it turned out to be one of my favorite games in a long time that I easily 100%'d with absolutely no hesitation

It is a very very very strange game. It's unpolished. The graphics kinda suck. The controls suck. The camera really sucks. The main character is boring and mildly cute at best. It's weak in everything that a platformer traditionally needs (3 Cs, controls, camera, character).

But my god is it so much greater than the sum of its parts. It's downright scary. I attribute it to the 4th C: content. The stuff in the game is just really good. It's impossible to describe but you will feel it by the end of world 2.

I don’t think the controls or graphics suck. And I like Hat Girl.

This has made me more intrigued to try out a game than I have felt in some time

Like, my expectations are still very much in check, but this is fascinating

The controls are fine, and Hat Girl is way more than "mildly cute", but I'm with you on everything else. I would say there are 2 throwaway time pieces in the whole game, and everything else feels unique and worthwhile to play.

I stopped playing when it made me collect three things (and boy was it super annoying having to run back to that one spot to try and follow the quickly-vanishing yellow line to find them) to open another thing to get a time piece. It felt like busywork.

It takes like 2 minutes to do each one...
