looks really cool but unfortunately crashes after the intro cutscene

Hey thank you for your comment, that's unfortunate indeed! We never encountered this issue, did you try the windows or the mac version?

Thanks for replying! This was on mac big sur

Ok thank you for sharing, we'll see if we can find what could cause the crash

Such a nice demo! I love the black and white, doodle-y style. The interface is so well-designed.

I love the dynamic between the brothers even before seeing the other one and I like the “this one last job” vibes that’s definitely coming.

As someone who’s used to point & click, the keyboard controls didn’t feel intuitive at the beginning but I got used to it.  Still it’d be nice if we can have that option too. 

Looking forward to see more!

Thank you very much for your feedback, glad you enjoyed it!

Allowing mouse controls is definitely on our list ;)

 Amazing game dev :D
