It was a fun adventure, I still think bringing those... things back is going to be a problem :)


Woo! Congrats @quickalas529

Thanks :)
And thank you for making the music to my game :D


Pretty fun game! I like games like this, they feel reminiscent of writing short comics on lunch breaks during elementary school. Can't wait for "REREscape: The REscapening"!

Yeah, I had a bit of fun making a nice and simple story :)
Which ending did you get, just curious?

I got to the final boss, and then accidentally pressed r which reset it. I got about 2/3rd through before I accidentally pressed it again. I'll keep going, though you might want to fix that
