Was reuploading a new version, there was a bug where people running on 120 hertz monitors were moving at a different speed.

Well done. Dat final level, i tried first to kill the squares outside of the "box". Then i realized it'd probably be easier to just try entering in it :p.

interesting. It was easy in the beginning when you have to control the two hearts independent of each other but I saw it coming when you have to move both at the same time and it like brain complete brain fuck for me. Nice game!

Really love the art! The game is pretty hard though...

The acceleration / deceleration delay is a bit annoying on a keyboard. But the game looks gorgeous! Need to try it with a controller.

My right stick was scattered across my controller so I was stuck with the keyboard. Wonderful concept! I actually thought that the last levels where for two players so I felt a bit dumb when sitting there practicing my multitasking skills. For the last level I got into a zen mode where I sat and repeated the same movement over and over again for half an hour. It was actually an amazing experience. I would have loved to see a bit more training before those ridiculously hard levels and perhaps some aid/restriction to move the two synchronously. Amazing work, I really liked it!

Wow I really like the visual design in this. The use of colors is awesome and the transitions between levels is super polished. Just the right length for a LD, too!

My one complaint: dual control is difficult and there's one level where the players start on the other side of where their controls are on the keyboard which was confusing for me

A nicely executed concept. I like how the levels reforms itself after every stage.

Fun and challenging. It becomes immensely difficult once the player has to move both pieces at the same time, which is something few people can do well. I would at least recommend not placing the player in death zones (or at least wait to move death bringing pieces) right at the beginning of levels.

All in all, fun game!

That last level where you have to control both of them was difficult! But I made it through after a few tries. The ambient music was very fitting. Only one critique, you should not let the player be able to move until the level transition is done. I was able to sneak through a couple of walls before they were in place. Still, good game! Well done.

I first I thought player shouldn't be able to move during transition (wow, they really gave that feel of polish) but then I found out it's difficult to pass few levels without it. Game is really difficult when you have to control two at the same moment - I had to give up later because of my lack of coordination :C Nice, chilly background music. I enjoyed whole game a lot, lovely entry :)

Very impressive. One of my favorites for this LD sessions. I like aesthetic which is pure. I like too this simple mecanics - but I hate theses ugly black cubes. Well done. Thank you ++

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
