The idea and story is really good. The games difficulty level is perhaps a bit to easy. But overall well done.

Very good job! As a gameplay it is not very interesting but the mood and execution was good. Gj for a first LD game!

The graphic design is nice ! The game is a bit too short (or too easy) but the story is funny ! Good job guys !

The Character does move fast.
Cute game makes me think of an old game when I was young.
I think there is definately more possiblity with the concept.
Oh, by the way I fixed the dropbox link now you can check it.
Very appreciate your attention.

The game looks nice but it didn't run in my mac. :(
I think is a common error for Unity, something about permits but I don't know exactly.
Any mac user has this issue too?

Gorgeous art and I like the setting a lot. It really feels like you are a very small person on a desk. Jumping and movement is also fine and feels good - but I couldn't find where I need to go, once I reach the thing where the air blows out. What am I supposed to do next?
Good use of the theme.

I liked the look of the game, and the mechanics felt fairly solid too.

Sorry but the controls are too hasardous to make me want to pass the firt stairs. Nice idea though ! Too bad !

Congratulations on your first Dare! Apart from general polish steps, the main thing I'd suggest to improve is making it so you don't have to sit through the intro text whenever you die on the first level, and making it possible to advance text without needing the mouse. Good work for your first jam!
