Thanks for noticing

For anyone curious, the file size is that small because: the music is played back from an NES format (.nsf) with no wavs/mp3s, the sound effects are emulated from the Atari 2600 (TIA) sound chip, and the game map is an old-school tile map.

This is really good. Most importantly, the controls are pretty damn spot on. Mark my words when I say people are gonna want a more "traditional" control scheme (left, right, jump, what the **** ever), but it would be a complete disservice to how good the controls are right now. Love the chiptunes, the overall feel of the game, and that feeling of impending doom. All that's missing IMO is retina graphics (even though the game still looks great). Really cool game. Can't wait to get into it later on tonight.

Oh yeah, as an Arab...my first reaction reading "Sheol" was "heh...wait till they find out about this in Lebanon", but I'm not like that. Not bothered by it.
