A downloadable game

here is a very early tech demo for Star Signal 144, a metroidvania about stars, signals, and a warm looking bunny-type girl named 144

controls are all in-game. please report any bugs or crashes (except for the one where 144 manages to shoot at a target while looking the entirely opposite direction, which is hilarious)

Completed the whole thing, had fun with it.

Only real quarrel was the aiming system which got a bit weird when trying to do gun-jumps. Maybe make it so that when youre in the air, firing downward always shoots straight down, just so on longer jumps you dont have to press right-down > down > shoot > right-down to keep momentum.

Another thing is that I found myself using the scatter most of the time just because it was better than all the other guns at jumping. Might want to have a bit more variance between the three. For instance, have the scatter excel in vertical motion, the machine horizontal, and the ultralight somewhere inbetween.

Other than that, good concept. Feels very cave story-ish.
