So after some effort on promoting the game, Indie Game Mag has written an article about the game:

At this point, it's really just about finishing the game. There are a few mechanics that need to be developed, but the majority of what's left is finishing and polishing the levels. So here are some progress screens from Level One:





The earlier hard work has also been paying off in that assets are readily available for placement where needed. However, I make sure that they are placed differently in terms of height and distance to make sure that the experiences throughout the level aren't duplicated.

Thanks for your support!

I am working on "The Shrines" at the end of the levels which will feature a fast cycling selection of "Mandalas" that are each worth different amount of points. Each one will also trigger the start of the next level.




This shows the Blue Mandala

Here are the latest updates! Finished the first level with these Mandalas:


And now moving on to finishing the second level:





Now, it's all about finishing the game... I've been saying it a long time but now, there are only a few things to figure out. It's all about finishing now aside from menu and UI touch ups. There is still a ways to go but that light at the end of the tunnel is appearing.

Great you made great constant progress - without being picky I would like to say that I personally really liked the very first version of the character model much better when you started posting. Overall I think your game got it's own atmosphere  - thats definitely a plus :-)

I'd like to see a demo released outside of the steam realm. Just a thought though.

Thanks for the continued support guys! I haven't been updating this log but development is steady.. although as always, there's still a lot to be done! Graham, I decided not to put the landing page online as of yet. I'll wait until closer to launch! As for the demo, I will send you a link shortly!
