What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Features:
- Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
- 16 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
- 10 awardments to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself

- 10 more awardments to earn
- New speedrun timer and post-game statistic

dont buy this game just play the demo i bought it and i miss my money, litterally the game is about 2 minutes longer if you pay for the full game, so basically you are paying 2 dollers for 2 minutes, if they updated the game it might be worth it but it needs to be longer than 5 minutes 3 of which are in the demo. I'll admit it is a funny game that was very well written but comon 2 bucks for 5 minutes? not worth it

There is no way you finished this game in 5 minutes. 15-20... yes. but 5? No way.

Why no Linux version? I would certainly buy it if there was one.

Short, but very enjoyable and worth what you're paying for.

Underneath its somewhat funny satire, it's just a very short and very basic platformer, even with all DLC. One might say that's part of the joke, but "it's bad on purpose" doesn't really make it worth playing.
