    Thank you! We really appreciate your comment! At first we weren't very streamlined, it took us a while to figure out the best way to make progress. We are only a team of two but we contact various music composers for our soundtrack.

    Hi everyone!


    If you equip the Speedy Seals Slippers Monie will walk, jump and dash faster. Use them to speedrun a level or to access hard to reach places and find secrets.
    Stay tuned for more details about artifacts in the upcoming weeks!

    In The Glitch Fairy, you can equip multiple Artifacts at the same time. For example, you can equip the Mr Shield (which reduces damage by half a heart) and Maple Charm (which may grant invincibility after getting hit).

    This artifact combo is perfect if you prefer defense over offence. Try different combinations and find one that fits your preferred playstyle!

    Hi!

    If you equip the Moon Croissant and the Cosmic Glove, your projectiles will change to something completely different.

    Hi everyone!

    We wanted to make items more accessible, so we added mini stores before every boss room.
    Now you can use your coins and store up on items before a tough fight!

    I'm getting some huge Hollow Knight vibes from this (probably helps how the items are mostly round, just like the charms in Hollow Knight), it's starting to shape up really well! I'm perplexed there's so little discussion going on in this topic with all these cool and exciting status updates.

    (I guess maybe the forum is dying, after all)

    Your comment made our day. It's very nice to be compared to such a great game. Thank you for your comment and interest in our project, we'll keep posting updates regularly.
    Also just curious, is the forum dying because there is a new one? Because of game maker 2 or people have moved to discord / reddit?

    It's not formally dying yet, it's just a really low level of activity compared with a few years ago. I guess one of the major reasons is that there was a generational shift where hobby developers moved on (or got too busy to chitchat with strangers) and the new generation prefers private Discord servers so they can keep their project development secret and have more direct contact with their fanbases? That's just a theory, I've lost touch with what the kids of today are into :p

    Hi everyone!


    We wanted the forest levels to feel more alive, so we added waterfalls! You can't go wrong with waterfalls.

    Hey, this game actually is looking pretty sick! The glitch niche is interesting.

    Not sure why you're not getting much attention. But maybe update the first post with the link to the demo? Honestly, when I first clicked on this topic (several times) I assumed it was all just previews, and screenshots only: Only when I read through to post 20 or something I saw you had a demo link.

    Thank you for your kind words!
    And you are absolutely right about putting the demo link in the first post. I don't know why I never thought about that XD.

    Hey, i tried your demo.

    I really liked gameplay. It was like combination off all classics.
    Graphics were really cute. I love how absurdly massive those shield enemies were. :D
    Glitch beam was very creative idea. At first i didnt even use it as i thought it was just more powerful attack.

    Controls were in weird positions thought. I would suggest up key as alternative jump.
    It took me while to figure out how to get out of shop. Pressing backspace didnt come to mind.

    After i got killed by skeleton my screen turned completely black. I tried to restart and continue, but it was still black. So I had to restart from new game.

    Boss battle was really cool.

    Thanks a lot for trying the demo and giving feedback! This is an old demo and some of the problems have been fixed.

    As for the controls, we will make it much more intuitive.
    Interesting about the glitch beam, this mean we have to present it better.

    Thank you for the kind words! This means a lot and it's really good to hear.
