it may just me but my game randomly likes to freeze, is this a known bug or is my game buggy?

Hey! If possible, please send me an email at bragmadev@gmail.com with more details (when the freezing happens, your operating system). 

If the game's logs (found in the same place as the save file path specified in the game's readme.txt) have anything that might be related to the freezing, please attach them as well.


Fun game! My brain clings too hard to Celeste controls for this one, but music and are are cools, and the controls feel pretty smooth.

I love your game! It's an absolute joy to control. I posted my first deathless run in a YouTube video. :)


Thank you and congratulations, that's an incredible run! I think you're the first one to complete all challenges (I haven't even done it yet myself), at least while recording.


I want Steam release.
