Edit: Restarted PC and it worked, never mind. The game’s executable is launching but the game itself doesn’t start. No window pops up. Tried both this version and the steam version.

Great demo!  I love the moments in the levels when the wind starts blowing, its the best feeling.  Excited for the full release!

Freakin A MASTERPIECE.  The way all the gimmicks flow so smoothly into one another, and the way it's all done with just two buttons, AND THE WAY THE SOUND EFFECT ENHANCES THE MUSIC???

This demo has got me HOOKED AND HYPED for the full releaseeeeeee

Wow! This is looking really great. When you first complete a level that teaches you new mechanics such as the jump attack or the double hit, it feels supper satisfying and exciting!

It was a very pleasant playing experience, with a nice combination of rhythm and action! I especially like the Twilight Flight stage!

Looking forward to the full version!


The DUCK is my true form.

This is INSANELY good! Can't wait for the whole game to come out!

Very good game! I think it would be better if the restart level was possible to acess during your death, just an idea.

i love that the music keeps going when you get hit and revert to a checkpoint


I found the wings in the cloud area to be a tad hard to see when they were the same colour as the background. Aside from that solid little demo! 


This was a great Demo! Can't wait to play the full game!

Looks cool!
