I am absolutely loving this demo, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the big bat-thingy boss.
Just seems to be a little bit too high of a challenge. Otus is just constantly being hit by everything despite my best attempts to dodge.

Are the gunners supposed to shoot enemies when they're standing on the ground? Because mine don't seem to. :(

Lovely game, Playing it brings me back to the good old 2d platformer days. This game reminds me of astro boy and Earthworm jim. Keep it up :)

This just looks like a fantastic game :D
Tried the demo and it instantly gives a feel like some of the old pixel art platformers, but with a new touch.

Everything I've seen from this game looks amazing and I've been following the game for a while. Good work guys!
Too bad the demo crashes after trying to create a savefile :(

Looks pretty nice. Kind of like the game I planned to create at some point :) (although the only similarity I see is that it takes place in the air too)
What engine do you guys use?
