Nice game, only didn't like the very beginning where you were stumbling around in the dark. It would be much better to have at least a small amount of light from the beginning. Still, well done!

Nice touch with dimensions! Took a while to figure out how to travel between dimension and lot of time to get the keys. Clever solutions and ideas for a one room game!

Really liked the take on the theme.
I just think the controls are really confusing. Why not simply pressing or holding 1 - 4 to instantly change dimensions and just touching objects to interact?

@vinipc yeah. My initial idea was to make the dimension circles "pop out" of the player, but i guess it could be implemented that way. Thanks for the comment.

The controls could be simplified. But other than that it was a very enjoyable puzzle. Well done!

Really good concept based on the theme, good job! I only wish switching between realms was a little easier.
