ever since the hedron collapsed, i've heard the sound
in the distance, someone is pinging
it's heartwarming to know that people are out there somewhere
that feeling is what taught me to play

Wow. I'm pretty sure this is the most impressive game jam game I've ever played. Amazing job - from the design to writing and especially music.

thank you! :)

Gosh, the outpost theme makes me want to have a 10-minute long version of it to listen to. Great game!

Im sorry is this a game about a sperm?!?!

nope

Wow, this was amazing! I only found one bug, which is insane for a game jam. (the bug was on the level with the four round guys following you down the hall. if you ping whil on the square and wait, then the would stop AFTER the square, and that is a softlock. i can explain better if needed)

oh! There was another thing that bothered me and I dont know if it was a bug. pressing space doesnt ping if you are holding any diagonal other than up right

oh yea i think that's a weird unity bug, for some reason it stops detecting space inputs if you're holding down two arrow keys? it should work if you use wasd controls iirc

oh ok. it still worked if the two arrows were the up and right ones.

ooh yea i tried turning off collisions on the round guys when they spot a green square but i guess it wasn't enough to prevent that lol

thanks for playing! i appreciate it

thanks for making! I appretiate it!

A nice calm little game you got there!  The music is extremelly well chosen. The main mechanic is really relaxing and in line with the atmosphere. The only thing i cant stand is the ship not standing excatly in the center of  the ligthened circle xdd. 

Liked a lot!!

thanks for playing! now that you mention it i should actually put a link to the soundtrack in the description

my idea with the light was that the player should theoretically see farther in front of them than behind but i do realize that that's not how most games handle spotlights

This is a very fun and calm game, music are very relaxing, puzzle are a bit hard but well developed,  Amazing! :D

thanks for playing! yea jam games tend to be a little hard lol

ty!

i can't get past the string part is there a way you can get past it or is it supposed to be like that

(+1)

you can. the first string part? the entire thing has strings. the first one you just need to go in a circle.
