The soundtrack of this game is the highlight, then with the beautiful landscape design, you don't want to miss it. You are not seeing many games from this publisher, but this one just done right.

Wow, this looks cool. A video of some gameplay would be great. I have never seen a game like this before.

Found some gameplay footage for the first game/original version, hopefully this'll shed some light until our Tubers have had a chance to play and record it.

Thanks Pete for the vid. It looks boring as heck so it sounds like a perfect game to play before bed.

Heyho, devs joining the discussion ...
The game might be boring if you expect an action title, but this is on purpose, it's supposed to be a relaxing and meditative experience We'll post a new trailer soon.

Basically much better graphics and optimized levels with much less frustration. E.g. spikes don't destroy you with a single hit etc. -- it makes for a much better experience. Levels have also been rebalanced and re-ordered. The 3-star system has been streamlined to something that isn't as confusing as before. And of course the wind-drawing is much much better with the free-form implementation we did.

Hm... The differences between this and the old version seem to fix the frustrations I had with the original game. That's the good - but the bad is I have to buy it all over again? I dunno if I am willing to go out on that much of a limb.

Yeah, I understand your concerns, but it's basically very simple. a) We put A LOT of work into the Deluxe version and think it's worth buying it again. Several people worked on it for weeks, so it's absolutely not a cheap "re-release". b) The changes are quite big so we didn't want to lose the original by patching it. A lot of people loved it the way it was. c) We are releasing this under our account without a publisher.

If you write me an eMail I'll send you a promo code and you can give us your honest feedback if it would have been worth re-buying it or not. Deal?
