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

I have a RADEON X300 SE 128MB HyperMemory. Should I be able to play this game? It says there is no sutible graphics device.

I like a game that doesn't take itself too seriously. This game was a nice diversion, albeit a shortlived one.

It's too short to justify paying for.

Linux is indeed not supported. However, I have heard that these instructions (for Terraria, but the concept is the same) have worked for some users: Tom-geiger.de

It is supported, but you have to buy the ingame DLC for it.

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.
