Just played 2,8% and all I can say this is special, long in the making but as I can see now worth the wait.

Wow I hope this gets the attention it deserves. This game is absolutely stunning. I am using a mfi controller and it plays so great. The drone is easy to control and maneuvers really well. I love the combat. So far I have a burst and a mine. So I can use those individually or drop a mine and burst it towards large enemy's that won't let me close. The world is so beautiful. Music creates a vibe of exploration. I am only about 6% in but it can only get better and better.

I'm trying to defeat the first boss but it keeps repulsing me backwards. I have on occasion shot a rock, but don't know how to do this regularly. Does anyone know how to do this?

Been looking forward to this; gorgeous.

I don't even mind that you can't turn the music off and coming from me, that's about the highest praise a game can get.

Swipe left to deploy a mine, then tap to use your pulse ability to send the mine towards the enemy
