Hello there! Congratulation on the game because like said Cryptic the art work look sick! Then the gameplay is simple and intuitive! Good work! Have you considered participating in our GDWC #gamedev contest ? Check out itch.io page for more info.

Great work for the jam. The artwork especially is amazing! :)

Thank you for the let's play and the kind words! It was incredibly satisfying, watching you understand everything - the fact that the spikes are not to be touched, the way the ability should be used, and all the level design tricks, secrets, and traps - with such ease. :3 

Hey, I'm glad you liked the video. I was definitely impressed by IC.. how was this made in a weekend? Mind blown. :)

Thanks a lot, we are truly flattered. ^^
