Utterly stylish visuals alongside music that absolutely jams. The concept is absurd and brilliant, and the weightiness of the sleeping player character lends to a heavy commitment combat style. Excited to see how the full game takes shape.


can't wait for the full game !!! this is unlike anything I've played before
