Was this made in GameMakerStudio?


Alright, just a heads up, I experienced slowdown on Windows10 (this is common in GMS games). It can easily be fixed by setting the sleep margin to 20ms. Fantastic game tho, I just played through it and enjoyed it a lot.

thanks for the heads up!

new download with the hotfix!
