It’s an awesome game running against yourself! I did not manage playing level 11. Help needed 🙂

Great job!

Typical modesty, honesty and gentleman-ness of Jonas.. 😉
But this time (as opposed to no other times) I am on his side! Gimme more levels!!! 🙂
Hugs and kisses and flowers and stuff from Prague!

Heeeeey Daniel! Super awesome to hear from you! (Though I fear it is a different Jonas than you think, but you are very right, it sounds *very* like the bad-ass German).

I guess we should give in to the pressure and do some more levels. I’ll see what we can do…

Plenty of hugs from Heidelberg and thanks for playing!

This game is *awesome* I played many games from GGJ, and this one was by far the best. You guys should seriously make this into a real release, I’d buy it and so would many other people.

Thanks you very much for your feedback! It really means a lot to us. We also intend to extend the game and do some more polishing (and definitely more levels). How it will be available we don’t know yet.
