skipping cutscenes is bugged, space sometimes crashes the game for some reason, great game overall though. also some keys will just stop working on webgl build for some reason. 

Better to play in full screen

yep, did that still the same issue persists

What browser are you playing on?

tested on opera gx and microsoft edge


Difficult game. Very fun though, the shotguns were brutal and I died alot to them. I loved the hotline miami vibes. I loved the little opening cutscene aswell.

I got trapped at the locked door you encounter, after getting the third ape. I'm not sure how to move forward other than to restart and see if I missed a key, or something. Fun game though. I love the...basically everything about it. 

*Edit: NVM, I figured it out. One of the dead hunters was covering the switch!*


We should've made them render under the switches... 💀

Either way, glad you enjoyed it!
