@Meep Damn! I didn't think it would be possible to finish that fast, but this makes me happy :) Thanks for the feedback! I'll get back to this it sooner or later, but I'm working on other stuff in between.

@Mikel_Hofer48 Thank you so much, i will! I did recently start working on it again, and I'm hoping for my own sake too that it won't take too long :D But I'm really enjoying making it and want to try my best to make it enjoyable.

@Mikel_Hofer48 I wasn't planning on adding enemies, but your idea got me thinking about a final level / room that could be fun. Let's see, or maybe it will have to wait for a sequel:D
At least at some point I want to make a boss fight in Pico-8 (shout-out to Just One Boss)!

Sorry for bumping the thread, but figured someone might be following this for updates.

@Meep and @RubyRed, if you like the full game, it would be awesome to see more speedrunning!
