I beat the game with only 1 dash :)

Help, I can't find the cyan cat in the first stage, could someone help me? I'm surprised no one else couldn't find this cat.

in the second pool in the tutorial dash upwards from the water

I returned to the dog flower after finishing the game, stopped just before the exit screen and turned back.

Oh wow, what a fun concept with a lot of potential!

The mechanics are awesome and the controls are smooth. I also like what you did with the cat spritesheets and how you edited them. The rolling is so cute :) And the looking up animation <3 I would love to see this become a full-fledged game.

My main issue is that I want the game to have a cohesive art-style. Right now it's a bit all over the place and hurts my eyes. Otherwise this is great!

A simple concept executed very well.

Everyone this is the seethingswarm from the credits, they made the cat and kitten sprite sheets used in the game. If you enjoyed them here, you’ll probably enjoy their other work as well.

  1. how do you get past the dash in any direction part? I can't jump that high even though I dashed. Helllllllllllllpppp.

BreatherGames hotline here, you can dash while in mid-air. Try following up a jump with a diagonal dash.

Umm...how do you do it if you're on the computer? Also, i'm trying to get to the red line

(1 edit)

The longer you hold c the higher you jump, that should get as close to the rail as possible before you dash. Then, in midair, hold the up and left keys at the same time and press x to dash diagonally. When you are close to the rail, hold z to to grab it.

so cute

Great game.  Really hits you in the feels in a whimsical but subtle way that leaves you wanting more. Be interesting to see what the cats would be like with pig physics.

This guy gets it

Thanks for playing, I’m glad you liked it. I’ve been studying pig physics in my spare time. I’m not quite there yet but I’m hoping one day I’ll be able to implement it.

I loved this game so much, it was so peaceful and blew my mind away, I really like how you implemented the side cats into it to add motivation for completionists like myself. Thank you for doing such an excellent job on this game and I hope you make more.

What a great game! the controls are smooth and satisfying. It has been a long time since I have played a platformer that just felt this good to play. I love the smooth flowing controls like the rolling and swimming, as well as the snappy mechanics such as the dash. What a wonderful experience 

Hello there!


I work for Gametroopers, an indie PC games publisher.

This game looks great especially the gameplay.

At what stage is the game at currently?

Please send me an email at mark.lauz@gametroopers.net so we can discuss a partnership opportunity.

this was very fun! i love how well the controls feel

(+3)

i really want the option to rebind SO FUCKING BADLY

(+1)

This was such a unique and interesting experience, thoroughly enjoyed it!

(+2)

i loved everything about it but trying to get the fourth cat was really hard and sometimes i almost got back to the top but it all was slides off or its just to fast but all together good game.

(+1)

That was great all around, and these controls and gameplay are some of the most butter-smooth I've ever seen. I love the unusual visuals, too.

Thank you for a lovely experience.

I loved this game. From the graphics to the soundtrack and especially the cats. 

(+2)

What a cool concept! The music fits perfectly the idea (man I'll never grow tired of Love Dream), and this arrangement is beautiful to listen to. Also movement in the game feel incredibly great! Running, grinding and swimming is just fun by itself.

The only thing I found odd was the small exploration part: having to go backward, or stop down to look around, kinda stop the momentum of the music. It sounded more satisfying to keep going forward, and unroll the music.

It was still a cool experience overall. Congratulation for such a beautiful game!
