Congrats on releasing the game and getting it on Steam.

I can't help thinking that it would have been good of you to acknowledge the game's debt to DROD at some point though in your product descriptions - they seem to have much in common.

Perhaps you missed this part of the tutorial. It also mentions how to kill the roaches. It's possible you haven't enabled the tutorial. You can do so in the settings.

In which room is this mentioned? I just had a quick playthrough from the beginning and didn't see it. I also didn't find any mention of what the red crosses do.

In Level 2 (rooms 7-9) there is a multi-room puzzle where, it seems, you have to save up as many strikes as possible because you need them for a future room. Is there a way to restore back to a save in a previous room, or do you have to restart from the beginning of the level?

Graphics and atmosphere are awesome :thumbsup

The sword controls are mentioned in the sixth room of the first level, and the saving in the fourth. The red crosses weren't mentioned in the tutorial, but they decrease your move count by 50 and can be used to get a higher score on the leaderboards.

Unfortunately, you'll have to start the second level over. Perhaps I'll add a workaround for this later.

Big thank you for your interest in the game! :)
