After failing at the last level, I reset and it led me to the main menu, I downloaded the post jam fix and when i clicked to start, a error popped up, I'll reply the error code here.

Edit: The reset to the main menu was in web, so ye.

Fantastic concept and excellently executed

I love this game concept, but I'm also curious how you achieved this effect,

It won't let me move, because the webpage won't stop thinking that I'm typing somewhere or other

Cool concepts! Love the puzzles. Would be cool to have a few more of them.

I just wish you make some updates.

Great mechanic, but the puzzles are too difficult for my liking. The second jump of the second level took me way longer than I'd like to admit. The level with the blue and red button was pretty great though. I made it to the level with the grey button. Perhaps number the levels that makes it easier to communicate which level someone is talking about.

more. death. messages.  please.

this game is really cool and challenging, I don't know if it's just me or what but is the death sound effect way louder than everything else for anyone else? It scares the shit out of me everytime lmao

Yeah, I also got scared of it every time , might be a little too realistic for this game.

marvellous

Cool game ! I dying on some level with shooting ts and was sent back to level 1....so I stopped there, but really cool concept !

i clicked r to restart the level and i was sent back to level 1

Me too. It was in the second bullet-turret level, not sure if that's the final level. Dev, if you're intending to come back to this for some post-jam polishing, you could maybe put in a level select menu. Then people can jump straight back to where they left off if this bug hits them.

It said "press ALT-F4 to restart" when I died at that level, pretty sure that wasn't a bug but intentional trolling by the developer :D

I replayed everything and it was in fact the last level.

This is really nice. Is there a possibilty to make an small devlog or twitter thread on how you programmed the mechanic?

Alt + F4

I hate you for that.

Also congrats on top 20.

I cant belive so many people fell for it  lol

Congrats on making top 20 in the GMTK Jam! I wanted to reach out to ask if you would be interested in participating in an interview about your experience during the jam? Interviews are conducted over Discord and presented live on Twitch.

the retry prompts are a nice touch, it's amazing to see that this game's basic mechanic is so good that it already feels like a complete game even with the smaller level selection of this dev time frame, the only complaints i can think of is the lack of indication of if the windows can move in specific directions and the last level being underwhelming, and that's not even a game specific issue!

with the time for a polished art style, level design and maybe a level editor this could easily go on storefronts in no time! 10/10 mechanics

Incredible! Really fantastic puzzles, and a really neat mechanic

This game is amazing. The level design is so clever. Very satisfying to play. Well done!
