Thank you so much everyone who played and commented on my game with helpful feedback!
The feedback was more or less unanimous, which made it a little easier to have a look at the flaws.

In the new build I’ve focused on making jumping easier by adding a small grace period where you’re able to jump after having walked off an edge. I’ve also made it possible to jump a little earlier before hitting the ground. You can jump higher overall as well, and the triple jump also allows you to move faster  forwards than when you’re running.

More boost in the triple jump!

I made some small changes in order to address the slipperiness as well. It’s now possible to take smaller steps when starting movement from a standstill. It’s still easier to move slowly with an analog stick, but this somewhat emulates it for keyboard as well, without making the character feel to slow or unresponsive (I hope).

I’m also trying out an automatic camera solution that will slowly move to behind the character when the player is not manually rotating the camera. It won’t do this whilst the player is jumping, standing still or walking facing the camera. It’s experimental, but more akin to what is commonly seen in platformers, so tell me what you think of it! :)

Single jumps more useful.

I also wanted to tell you that I’ve added a Linux– and a Mac OS X build that is available for download now as well! \(o3o)/ wööö!
