Whoa, out of nowhere

This looks so good. Is there any IAP? Is this free with a full game unlock?

I think it's completely free to raise awareness of malaria in hopes that you'll donate to charity.

Yeah I'm playing now. Definitely full free, and there's a screen asking you to donate $3 after each level. Art style is wonderful, controls are great, and the level design is weird and atmospheric.

Initial impression: art style/music/cause is amazing, however the controls and physics feel very floaty and slow, which can make for aggravating, frustrating gameplay at times.

This is such a great concept. Great game that is informative with an important message. The iap is reasonable and respectable. I will be donating and would love to see more developers do this. Love how dark the game is too.

Coming from someone with the username of scrotally, I couldn't help but snicker

That said, it didn't negate the awesomeness of your comment. A friend I used to work with travelled to Africa and had to take extreme measures to prevent getting malaria. She had extreme hallucinations and was even pregnant at the time, so she was limited to very specific drugs that, while safe for her baby, had incredibly terrible side effects.

All that to help. $3 to help against something most of the western world figures is "nothing" really isn't much.

Nothing against the game, haven't even played it... Just sayin'.
Almost every game with shadowy artwork has limbo mentioned in threads about it, I don't get it, was limbo the first game to use this style of artwork or something? Or maybe the first to do it successfully? Not trying to be arsey it's just when I see these dark artwork games limbo isn't often the game I think of (lad bng an exception)

Hey! Having a comedically superior name shouldn't disqualify me as the most brilliant human on earth. That statement does though. Scary story about your friend. Luckily, all we westerners typically need to worry about is an upset stomach from malaria pills when traveling to tropical regions. There is a reason why it is usually the main precaution taken when visiting such places. I'd much rather be pestered by a worthy cause that is creatively woven into a cool game then iap's that are essentially just missing pieces of a game.
