Thank you for support!
Does that mean the old levels are gone?

2 Destined: I did redesigned a lot of old puzzles, some I threw away, some are still there, I wanted to polish out two things 1 - difficulty curve and most importantly 2 - I didn't want any filler levels, I want each and every puzzle to tell the player something about mechanics, show new ways of thinking new possibilities within same set of rules and surprise in a new way. Only puzzles that did that made it to the final 65.

I promised to share a bit of details about our video trailer

Here are all the sprites / frames that went into it


I did all the frames in Illustrator, Ann Gee Neo drew key 6 frames, things like 3 phones and 3 positions of a hand, and i animated all the movements based on them.
I would put illustrator art into Photoshop and do the animation there with each picture lasting either 1/30 of a second or 2/30 of a second.

Game-play video was captured from the actual game and located at the bottom of the layers.

I just jumped in the thread for the first time now, and those screenshots don't tell me anything about the game and leave me confused. Do you have a simpler one to put in front?

well the whole game is about exploration, understanding puzzle rules via exploration of first very simple puzzles, progression and experiments with new mechanics. there are no tutorials or text in the game - it is a hands on experience. But you can watch the trailer as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEsVCCFjmmQ

Maybe that was your goal. I'm just put off by not understanding what's happening. You would miss my install based on the screenshots

I have said this before and think it is super important that a trailer lets people know what you are asking them to download.

It doesn't represent the game well, which when you play it is actually very simple to play.

I think this trailer is a good example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CKJ4ulHO28 (it is a super hexagon clone)
