I'm in the engine, but I'm stuck on the third grid. I'll wait for the walkthrough to get released. Wake me up when it happens.


There is a cheat code if that helps? :D I can write a walkthrough showing all the solutions, although the final puzzle (one after the 3rd pipes grid) is a bit trickier to write about, rather than just providing a way to skip it or to solve it automatically.

Great work! The puzzles really fit the atmosphere, and apart from the very first puzzle which I only partially understood (still randomly won it eventually), the rest has a hard but fair balancing of difficulty.

Of course the standout part remains the graphical achievements, with awesome visual effects during the mini cutscenes and that looping level. I really like the 3D/2D style you've polished over the jams too, all the different environments were pleasing to watch and interact with.

Btw I was playing Modeselektor - Extended (2021) during my playthrough which felt like the perfect soundtrack :)
