    This is one of the best platformers I've played since Chibi-robo. It is short, but it's so fun. And I love the quirky humor. I actually haven't beat it yet. I'm sort of dragging it out as long as I can.

    I hope you can fix some of the graphical glitches with the "wobbly" effect. It makes Octodad look... Awkward sometimes... And getting up steps needs to be worked on. But like I said, a phenomenal platformer. Takes me back the the golden age of 3d platformers.

      Also, the physics are awesome. They aren't used too much in what you have so far, but still.
