Didn't expect this comes out today.. This looks pretty fun, but I still have bunch of games with 'new' label on it. Probably, I'll add this into my watch list.. Still wondering what's the IAP used for.

I like the trailer, cool. Isn't it a bit Nilhilumbra or however you spell it?

Any impressions? This was on Kickstarter so there seems to be some level of quality here. The game looks very promising

It's an auto-running platformer with directional control, which allows for some exploration and interesting level design. The animation is not perfectly smooth but it fits with the creepy early-Disney aesthetic. The controls are fairly simple and fairly accurate, though not perfect. Each level has multiple goals, which encourages replay.

I would say that if you dig the look of the game, it's definitely worth the download.

+1 to SZ's impressions. Quite enjoying this. It basically has Mirror's Edge/Project 83113's movement control scheme, and also shares their exploration mechanics.

My only gripe is that the game looks too low res on the ipad mini.

Has a Nihilumbra feel to it. The non-game video footage is like watching a Nine Inch Nails video.
