  1. Hello. I just tested the linux version, and it’s very laggy. The mouse-sensitivity went out the roof and the game was litterally unplayable. I hope you can fix this, because from what I have seen, this game looks gorgious!

  2. I just love this game and my little sister loves it too. But if you can make this multiplayer or just co-op both me and my sister would be very gratefull. Please make it LAN if you are going to make multiplayer. If you could fix this I shall tell god about you guys πŸ˜‰

  3. Hello! This game is great, but it needs one thing: Multiplayer. It would be so great to be able to play with your friends! I think it should be local, and a option for LAN. Thanks for reading, and I hope you will add it to the game.
