    Played the demo. Love the style of the game. If ever there’s a final product, I’d love to see some of the jumping mechanics tightened up a bit. While there isn’t anything that impedes gameplay (in fact, this is a really minor criticism), I found the controls a bit too slippery while making some of the more precise jumps. All in all, I think this is great and hope to see more.

    I’m dying because I want to see the rest of this. I played it way back in the day after finishing Cave Story. I know this is probably the one Metroidvania game that will equal or surpass my ratings of Cave Story (which was freakin high). I just want more! Perhaps a 4th preview if you haven’t stopped working on it?

    I get the pxplay.mfx error even after downloading the .dll file. Is there any other way to fix that?
