Re: Thank you for making a wonderful game

Thanks for the praise. When we started to make the game part of our inspiration was a similar tiredness of modern games frequent hand-holding; we wanted to make something unabashedly difficult, but still not have the difficult be unfair or artificial. I am extremely glad (and surprised) to see that ...
