Had very high expectations for this one and it's better than what I expected, great game! 1 Small issue, the controls are lagging a bit. It feels realistic, but I wish the controls were a bit sharper.

It's not that they're lagging, but it's definitely deliberate. I think they work well and it's just a matter of getting used to them. Perhaps you get better "handling" with the unlockable characters.

They're not lagging indeed, you're right. Couldn't find a better way to describe it.

got my vote for GOTW. good control, great level design, enemies behaviour are predictable after a few tried but not the main issue since its all about your skills in this game, perhaps the dev can consider to make a procedural enemy AI where it will behave randomly after the level has been reset. got a journey vibe on some of the level which is good and i think this is the best purchased for me tonight.

I've just picked it up and played the tutorial and the first level so while I appreciate that this might not be enough to give a balanced opinion yet but all I can say is wow. looks great, fantastic atmosphere brilliant controls and wonderful production

If the wife hadn't told me off for paying it more attention than her in bed I'd still be playing it.......
