I like the art stile but you can't save the game

I very like the graphics, the game is not for all because it's hard, I try to go to the boss but don't have a save game option, I give you 3/5 stars, I played three times and it's frustrating.

The game looks amazing.

But sadly I am a linux user, is there a way you can export to linux?

+1. Wine can't beat the performance of a native build.

Bro this game is so good The art work is really good Good job

Really great homepage! Will check out the game though not really in a genre I understand ...

Awesome! Any chance of a mac version?

I'm sorry, for the demo build, there won't be a mac version. but the final version, it will be available for PC, Mac, and consoles. 😁😁

Ok cool, that’s fine!πŸ‘Œ

Good graphic)))

thankee thank you GIF

I'm new to games like this, and I'm glad that this great game introduced me to these type of games! Keep up the good work! <3

thank you for playing!

Amazing :) haha 

nice team! waiting for it ;) greetings

Wow, this was great. The music, gameplay, and art were all fantastic. It was the first game in a while that scratched the same itch as Hollow Knight for me. I didn't expect the combat to be as fluid as it was, so that was a nice surprise as well.  I was initially skeptical of controlling two characters but it works really well! I managed to complete the demo, and can't wait for more. Props to the developer! Definitely one of the best demos I've ever played on Itch.

aww GIF

that is too kind. this game is nothing compared to Hollow Knight (I'm a huge fan btw). thank you for your kind words. please feel free to give us feedback/suggestion. we would like to listen more to platformer/metroidvania fans. thank you for playing. πŸ˜Š

You're welcome, thank you for making such a neat experience! If I think of any suggestions I'll be sure to ler you know. 

The game is fine and the art looks cool. I think this should have better keyboard controls. I understand that the game was thought for remote control, but it would be good if this recognize if one is connected or not. About keyboards, space is more useful for jump, so i got a little confused xD. But besides that, everything else was beauty and fun, good work.

I hope it comes with more mechanics.

hi. sorry about that. the final product is supposed to automatically detect the input used by the player. so, if you are using keyboard, the tutorial will show "X" to jump instead of showing "A". 

we thought the space key to jump is suitable for controlling with WASD. some platformer game like Celeste use C for jump. but sure, we will consider to add an option to rebind the keyboard keys. 😊

anyway, thank you for playing!


Hi! I just played through the game yesterday and I absolutely enjoyed it. There were some issues I had with the game and I did full playthru and review of the game on my Twitch channel. I would love to give additional feedback in the future! I'd say the best part about the game is the aesthetic and how Wispy has so much hidden potential for really expanding the game. I can't wait to see what else you guys will create! Here's the link to the video

hi! thank you for playing. I've watched the video. and sure, feel free to contact me (via this page or discord) if you want to give any additional feedback later. 😁

Hell yeah
so artwork

Noice! Smooth and relaxing

Thank U GIF by Amanda

 i don't know if i just need to git gud but the first boss feels a bit hard for me

don't worry, you are not alone! 😁 some players feel it's quite hard, but some other said it is fun and challenging. we will consider to make a new option to change the difficulty of the game.

thank you for playing! πŸ˜€

better than the most bestest

lololol tq 😁

This game is amazing!! the movement is smooth, the art is incredible, I love the mechanics, especially the mushroom one, and the boss fight is epic.

I can't wait the full game to release :D

Thank you for playing! So glad you enjoyed it. 😁

Hi!! Are you open to talk about your creation process of your game design? Im a video game student from Montreal, Canada and Im doing a research on video game design. We can do it during  a couple of weeks to talk about your game and give it some visibility in the database of my research group for others who want to learn more about original design!

Hi! Sure, you can contact me on my personal email then: 



Left me wanting more, and by that I mean I wanted more power ups! Spider legs was SO cool can't wait to see what else comes out of this game 

Awesome video! Your reaction to the spider legs is hilarious. πŸ˜‚ Watching people enjoying the game always gives us more motivation and energy. πŸ’ͺ Thank you for playing!


any time folks :D it's my goal to become a channel that can spotlight smaller games in hopes that it'll become a bigger game


Senang melihat banyak indie game dev yg berasal dari Indonesia. Terus berjuang!! Good luck!!


Senang juga melihat orang Indo yang peduli indie games dari Indonesia! :)

halo teman-teman. terima kasih sudah mampir. salam gamedev Indonesia! πŸ’ͺ😁


Lovely visuals and good controls. Looking forward to seeing the story too. 


thank you. such a great play, sir!  currently, the story is made by.. well.. the programmer πŸ˜‚.  we probably need to hire a real writer to write the better story for this game. 😁


Hehe, programmers can write stories too! The ingredients for an epic tale are all there and I bet there's a twist about Kimo's origin. ;)

How did you make the graphics? Photoshop or etc. ?

Im an indie game developer so i wanted to know how to make better 2D graphics.

all graphics are made with photoshop 😁

Wow! great work! thank you for the answer! :D

ouch ow my eyes. they S T A I N


no really. my eyes. they are the S T A I N

Great stuff! I sometimes had difficulty identifying what was able to be climbed, as the foreground often went over the midground and was sometimes the same colour as the ground. The mushrooms were very hard to identify, since they had an almost identical colour to the background. Another thing was the spikes that burst out of the floor (in the level and boss fight) didn't really have much warning.

I really loved the game though, looks frickin incredible. I hope these suggestions can make it even better!

Someone on our discord says the same about the difficulty to identify some foreground/background. We will try to fix it on the next build. Anyway, thank you for playing!


Good show so far, I look forward to seeing the full game, let me know how it goes.

You are probably the first person that experienced the music bug. Anyway, that is a good playthrough. I genuinely laughed when I saw your reaction facing the spider the first time. πŸ˜‚
Thank you for playing! 


I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It was amazing.

Wow, such a good play through. I'm sorry that so much bugs appear there. 😁 We will fix it soon. Thank you for playing!
