  1. What do you know…
    If you put hard work, dedication,fresh ideas and love into making a game people will love, buy, enjoy and recommend it to others…
    If only other companies would copy a few things from PG we’d have more games that I we can actually enjoy and I finish.

    1. Are you sure you wouldn’t rather have a version where in order to play a level you need energy which recharges at a rate of 1 every 5 minutes (or you can pay $2 to refill now!) and progress is gated behind randomized rewards (Pay $5 to get what you want now)?

    1. Pretty sure that was never the case. They even made an art piece thanking the fans for good sales a little bit after the game released.

      1. I must’ve missed that part.
        Regardless; I’m happy to hear this game is getting the recognition it deserves because I’ve finished it a couple days ago and it exceeded my expectations… and my expectations were already pretty high.
